How I Met Your Mother Fodder

How I Met Your Mother: Sandcastles in the Sand

Future Ted tells us about how Robin used to be a pop star but she turned into an entirely different person - as in, the kind of person who goes to a shooting range. At the bar, Robin says that her boyfriend from when she was a teen was visiting soon. They make jokes until they just run out of jokes. However it turns out they only dated for a week and a half at the end of July, which translates to all of the Summer in Canada. Somehow I don't think that's true.

After the wonderful week, the guy tells Robin that he is leaving her for his ex-girlfriend because her family is getting a pool. Simon (the guy) then asks her to load his drum set. Lily says that clearly she wants to win and Robin denies it for a moment and then they tally point distribution. The last point is based on looks and while it is obvious to everyone when he walks in that he now looks like a total loser, Robin gets quite excited.

Ted asks everyone what just happened and Robin says it wasn't so bad and we go to flashback. Robin says he looks hotter (if that's possible) and then proceeds to whip out a can of beer from his pocket. Our crew tries to make Robin look good but somehow even though the band was called "The Four Skins" he still looks awesome to Robin. Simon says that he starred in her video - oh yes, there was ANOTHER VIDEO.

Barney demands the tape of the video and she refuses. He says his life will be a hell of searching down this thing that might not be possible to find. Ted says that when you are around people you knew when you were young you often revert to how you were when you were that age. Marshall calls it revertego and Marshall says that Lily's friend Michelle is like that.

Later, Robin at the bar says that Simon asked her out on a date and she said that she would love to do so. Ted asks to clarify and Lily says that the guy doesn't deserve a second chance. Robin says that it was 10 years earlier and nobody is the same way they were ten years earlier, right? Lily says, "aw hell no" and has quite the curious way of speaking when her friend Michelle.

Meanwhile, Robin plays music from The Four Skins during the news. They talk about revertego and point out Ted's friend "Punchy" as an example. Robin says that they have fun together and they discuss it until Marshall and Lily start talking to her like they're her parents. Robin says that she and Simon are going to go all the way.

After the show, of course, Robin gets dumped again for the very same reason in the same van. Well, this time it was a jacuzzi and not a pool but it's essentially the same.

I have no idea how to explain how Michelle and Lily talk when they are around each other but when Lily walks away, Michelle explains it in clinical terms. Not long after this everyone but Robin leaves and when Barney comes he comforts her. She says she just wanted to feel like she was sixteen again and Ted says it's the stupidest thing she has said. She used to be quite lame but now she is awesome; way more awesome than Simon ever will be. She then invites him to his place.

The invitation, of course, is to watch the video - the video called "Sandcastles in the Sand." It is the "artistic followup" to her last video. Hee hee, Tiffany was even in the video. Alan Thicke was also in the video. Barney says that there is surely a tampon commercial to be found in the video. Robin agrees that she was lame but yet they somehow watch it again and again and again. (Repeat ad infinitum) - and THEN they suddenly decide to make out. WHAT?! No, I'm serious. Was not expecting that at all.

Sorry, but I saw this coming two years ago. They both like cigars, are career-driven and neither wants kids. I think the only reason they brought their romance in so soon is because for some stupid reason the show hasn't been renewed yet. I predict this to play out in some similar ways to Monica/Chandler on "Friends," only with Ted being the one they're hiding their relationship from. Ultimately, Ted will probably meet the "mother" right after he finds out about these two. Seriously. Haven't you ever watched sitcom TV before? ;)
