    I've forgotten - what's the connection between the mother and the wedding?

    For some reason, I thought Ted said he met the mother at the wedding, but that may have been a season ago, and I'm probably not remembering it right. Maybe it was more vague, like if not for the wedding, I wouldn't have met...

    But if that's the case, then the mother isn't Victoria, right?

    You are correct.

    They never said 'met for the first time'. What if they just drove different cars, and met each other at the wedding? Like "I need to run by the bakery, I'll meet you at the wedding". :p :rolleyes:

    You might be right, but the way they implied it was he meets her for the first time.

    Yes, but as we know, Ted is a ******, and so it would be just like him to keep telling his kids a story long after he revealed who the mother was.

    Talking about the whole "telling the kids a story" element:

    I really enjoy when we see future-Ted altering the story (like Ted eating a sandwich while Marshall stapled himself) or admitting that he's not sure what happened (like the guard's magic trick at the security checkpoint)

    Speaking of the TSA guy's magic trick (the second one, the simple card trick), the card being the three of clubs was almost certainly a shout-out to Penn & Teller.

    Maybe I missed it, but why was Barney wearing the Ducky tie in Atlantic City? This should have been long after he was let out of the bet with Marshal.

    He offered to wear it if Marshall would agree to get drunk.

    He made a deal with Marshal. Marshal would get belligerent drunk in exchange for Barney wearing the tie.

    In the previous week's episode, Barney offered to put the tie on in exchange for Marshall doing something. I think it was for agreeing to turn their cell phones off for 2 hours.


    EDIT: ...and get drunk. :)

    I don't know if anyone's mentioned this, but he was wearing it in exchange for Marshall getting drunk.

    The resolution of that stupid door joke made me literally laugh out loud... even though it was a dumb joke.

    Meh. I'm done with this show. It's supposed to be a sitcom, not a Mexican soap opera (and it sucks at that too).
