    Thank God that's over with. Seeing Barney walk in at the end, say "Daddy's home" and wink at the camera made me squee like a 5 year old. I hated them together. They sucked the coolness right out of each other. Can't wait to see next week now! :up:

    Loved the whole scene in the station wagon! :up:

    I really hope we get to see the Alan Thicke/Robin Sparkles variety show. :)

    I have no doubt we will.

    Really good episode.

    Oh you know if Barney has any say in it we certainly will! I'm excited for the next two episodes.... Barney and his "play book" and then Slapsgiving episode!

    I was thinking Fat Barney looked like Andy Richter.

    I didn't really mind the Barney/Robin thing too much. But I would say (at least from a relatively new viewer of the show) that Barney should never get into a long term/serious relationship. He's much more "awesome" being single.

    Yeah, me too. And for all the reasons that they said that were reasons why they should break up. :)

    I also enjoyed Robin and Barney together. I understand it doesn't really fit with the alpha-male Barney character, but I thought it was a nice progression for both of them. Now they're both going to revert to where they've always been, and that's just more of the same.

    That line got a laugh out of me. Can't wait to see the next Robin Sparkles bit.

    I did too ... after waiting for it for a few years they weren't together long enough at all. :(

    What I'd like to see is Barney and Robin have a friends with benefits relationship ... they could still be awesome separately but hit the sheets occasionally. :p

    I loved it fat barney was hilarious. I am glad they are broken up for now. I hope Barney and Ted go out and tear up the town together.

    Could not agree more.

    I love this show, but I'm feeling incredibly unfulfilled by the Barney/Robin relationship. So much buildup for, what, a month's worth of episodes?

    Although, there is a little part of me that wonders if Ted's voice-over at the end hinted that it might not be the end. Could be wishful thinking.

    This has become a show for me that I try to watch right away - not because I like it so much for it to be a Must Watch, but more of a "I'll hurry up and watch this so I can free up room to record something else".

    I was amused at the initial "relationship gut" comment, but I can't stand when they start doing the fat suit stuff. I just don't find it even mildly funny.

    I'm finding this show less and less funny all the time. As old as it's getting, I like Two & a Half Men a lot better than this, and neither one can touch Big Bang.

    It's a show about nothing. Barney & Robin was too much something.

    I think he looked more like Glenn Beck.
