Marshall boards a bus with Marvin to get to the wedding. The only thing that will keep the little guy happy is Marshall's rhyming. When he realizes he forgot his son's books, he tells some tales from years ago. We go on a date with Ted, watch Robin eat an entire wedding cake and the coronation of Barney as the Player King of New York City. Ted gets bests Barney for a girls number, and Robin runs into her old flame Simon as James Van Der Beek makes a cameo.
