We start off the episode with simple words to set up the rest of the season:
55 hours before the weddingThe gang starts off in three separate locations showing us the different story lines of the episode. Here are the three plots: Lily and Ted, Marshall and Marvin, Barney and Robin. Here's a brief look at how it begins:
Lily and Ted
Lily complains about Ted's slow driving and Ted pulls out his "driving gloves." In my opinion, they're kinda cool. But only if you're riding a motorcycle and you're a big, white man with an awesome mustache....
Barney and Robin
The couple is looking as cute as ever being in love and all mushy talking about their wedding. That is...until they start talking about their wonderful family members.
Marshall and Marvin
Marshall enters into the episode by saying "I'm going to ruin this wedding."
Marshall talks about ruining the wedding because he still hasn't told Lily about the judgeship. Judy, his mom, posts a picture announcing to the world that Marshall is going to be a judge. Flash to Lily and Ted, Lily doesn't check the picture and she fights with Ted and ends up taking the train to Farhampton. Meanwhile, Barney and Robin are listing 'wild card' family members (not including the ring bear. You mean ring bear-er right Barney?)
Continuity: Barney is one-quarter Canadian. He and Robin find out they have a "cousin Mitch" in common. Ranjit please pull over for a second. *commence the hurling*
Lily is on the train with the mother!!
AND THEY BECOME FRIENDSp.s. do they look alike or is it just me?
Lily tells the mother about Ted. They have so much in common already. This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. (Lady Tedwina Slowsby)
Barney and Robin are sharing "Creepy Telepathic Murder Thoughts." It's a soul mate thing....right? LOL
-Robin: You and I share no DNA whatsoever
Barney: Let's change that
-Barney: Our wedding is going to be legendary
Robin: No wait for it?
Barney: I've got you, I don't have to wait for it anymore
-The mother: I know I'm just a stranger on a train whom you tried to bite, but do you want a hug?
