How I Met Your Mother: Double Date

Future Ted tells us about two blind dates - one of which happened in 2002, and one which happened in 2009. The funny thing is that it is the same person, but neither of them remember it. Jenna in the past and present are between jobs.

The date continues until they make the same joke that they had previously made and realize they had been on the date before. They realize the date didn't go well. Ted asks why she thought he was snobby and she mentions he corrected the spelling of the menu. They decide they are going to figure out what they did wrong that night. The show employs an excellent effect of walking behind the previous date.

Barney presents four tickets to The Origin of Chewbacca exhibit but it turns out that he really wanted to get Marshall away so that they can go to a strip club. Barney tells him that he can be a man and be in a relationship at the same time. Marshall says that every time he has a fantasy about another woman, he has a depressing fantasy about Lily involving Lily dying and ending with his getting with the person that caused the first fantasy.

A stripper comes out and looks exactly like Lily. They go later and Lily is okay with what happened but Robin gets upset that Barney went to a strip club. Ted and Jenna come in and everyone points out Ted's various first date flaws. The actual first date flaw comes out later on the roof when Jenna remembers that he said that he was going to call her and he never did. She walks away, understandably upset. He calls back pretty quickly and she says that she doesn't want him to call now. He tells her that if things had gone a little differently, who knows how things might have gone?

Ted realizes why the date didn't go well and asks if it isn't worth it to hold out for someone who won't just accept their funny quirks but love them? She agrees with him.

Lily, Barney, Marshall, and Robin go to the strip club and Lily thinks that the stripper version of her is hot. Later, Lily and the stripper switch places and Marshall catches on quickly when the "stripper" trips all over the place.
