Season 7, Episode 14
46 Minutes

46 mins is a length of a sight float to Marshall and Lily’s residence in a suburbs of Long Island. That’s it…no some-more Marshall and no some-more Lily, or during slightest it seems that approach to a gang. To Barney it means no some-more sore married integrate sharpened down his good ideas and that he is a new personality of a group. It also means we get to announce a initial of dual theme-song spoofs, this one featuring lyrics sung by Barney to a gang’s photos—minus Lily and Marshall.

New Gang in Town
As a initial act underneath a new universe sequence of Barney Stinson, he decides a stays of a squad (and Kevin) should go to a frame club. Neither Kevin nor Robin wish to go, though according to Future Ted, they are in ‘Early Relationship Chicken’ where they any keep similar to peculiar (or dangerous) activities simply given conjunction wants to cavern first. Once during a frame club, we started to consternation if we would get a anxiety to a barbarous doppelganger episode in that we met “Stripper Lily” Jasmine. Well, we got some-more than a reference—we got a lapse of a Russian stripper who looks like a unequivocally tacky Lily.  My usually censure here is in a slight impression inconsistency: behind when we initial met Stripper Lily, genuine Lily was utterly vehement to go to a frame club. She even purchased a path dance for her hubby. Plus, as we all know, genuine Lily is flattering eccentric and would not indispensably reject frame clubs and a like, so it is a small astray for Barney to explain that Lily always deserted this idea. But we digress.

The night only gets weirder and weirder from there. Kevin and Robin humour by an ungainly path dance where $20s go flying; Ted and Barney accommodate Stripper Lily’s boyfriend—a vast over-bearing Russian dude whom they announce “New Marshall”; and Ted gets unequivocally dipsomaniac meditative that Marshall has deserted their friendship. With their New Lily and New Marshall—and a new waggish Russian chronicle of a show’s thesis song—Ted, Barney, Robin and Kevin conduct out with their new squad to an subterraneous high-stakes poker diversion where Ted wins big. we adore a dipsomaniac Ted—from dancing on a check exclaiming, “I’m a stripper!!!” to singing about his loot to a Russian mafia, “We built chip city!”

Lites Out
Over in suburbia, a land far, distant divided from MacLaren’s, genuine Lily and Marshall try to entirely settle into their new home. There is only one problem: Lily’s prior absentee father, Mickey, is there to stay. Ever given training about his daughter’s pregnancy, he unequivocally wants to be present—plus a fact he has no where else to live interjection to his unsatisfactory career as a builder of Aldrin Games (who could conflict Slap Bet!). Since Lily and Marshall’s residence was given to them by her grandparents, this is also Mickey’s possess childhood home. You could contend that Mickey knows a few of a house’s idiosyncrasies, and his behaviors make him outstay his welcome.

After Marshall blows adult during him and tells his father-in-law to pierce out a subsequent day, a compound blows out and Marshall contingency make a harrowing tour to a groundwork on his own. In a waggish travesty of a fear film shot in night-vision, Marshall encounters a intricacy of traps in locating a compound box. With Mickey’s irritating voice derisive him by a intercom system, Marshall’s series is roughly adult until Lily convinces Mickey that he could be a good father and grandpa by assisting them instead. Marshall’s frightful film impulse turns into an Apollo 13-like goal to revive energy to a residence as Mickey delicately talks him by step-by-step instructions. He is eventually successful, and to tip it off, Marshall’s feat inspires Mickey to emanate a best-selling Aldrin diversion of all time, “Lites Out” (I still like Slap Bet better). In addition, Lily decides that Mickey can live with them for a while longer. We all know what this means: Mickey will offer a all-important purpose of ‘babysitter during any time of day or night’ for when Marshall and Lily join a squad on adventures in a city or during a bar. we am certain we will infrequently get to see Chris Elliot as Mickey, though we feel we will some-more mostly hear, “Oh, a baby’s during home with Lily’s father…let’s drink!” Hey, a writers had to come adult with something, and this does seem improved than baby Emma constantly blank on Friends.

Some favorite humorous sound bites:

  • “Long Island? we don’t know – we can get mist tans here!” (Barney)
  • “It’s like when they cancelled Party of Five for a second time…I mean, like when they cancelled sports.” (Ted)
  • “This is a farthest detached we have lived given my division abroad.” (Marshall, referring to when he and Ted lived on conflicting sides of campus)
  • Robin and Kevin’s ungainly attempts during phrases like, “Make it rain!” and “Straight pimpin style!”
  • “Larry doesn’t get a nickname given he has too many things—you get one thing Larry!” (Ted to a Russian mafia member who has a lot of ‘things’ like a mustache, eye patch, pet ferret).
  • “Was he a man who stabbed a garland of jail guards?” (Kevin remembering how he knows Thug Marshall—he was one of his therapy patients).
  • “I did it!” (Marshall); “No Marshall, we did it” (Mickey)

“46 Minutes” had humorous A and B-stories, though some-more importantly for a show’s growth, it began to residence how formidable it will be for these characters to knowledge some life-changing events. Ted, Barney and Robin were right—it is a large understanding that Lily and Marshall have strictly changed and shortly their baby will be here.  Their loyalty will have to develop and there won’t be as most time spent in their dear counter during MacLaren’s. But as Future Ted points out, it doesn’t matter if a counter is in Marshall and Lily’s kitchen—as prolonged as they are together. It will be a large composition for us all…because a small squad is flourishing up. And on that note…

Happy 150th Episode HIMYM!  We’ve come so far, and we feel assured that we still have some good times ahead.
