Review Quotes


After waiting out a storm at Ted's childhood home, Marshall and Daphne realize they have a stowaway on their road trip. At the hotel, Robin comes down to breakfast wearing Loretta's blouse and incites her future mother in law. Loretta is known for her amazing eggs, but Robin claims her mother scrambles them better. Lily arrives at breakfast drink in hand but loses her cool anytime someone mentions something that reminds her Marshall took the judge job. Ted wants to go visit a lighthouse and Lily gives him some bad advice when she tells him to take Cassie and to stop holding out for the perfect woman. When Robin admits she can't make scrambled eggs, Loretta makes a comment about how she will ever be able to cook for her grandchildren. Robin tells her how she can't have children and walks out. Robin later learns her mother is not coming to the wedding. After a talk with Barney, Loretta tells Robin to call her Mom. Ted's trip to the lighthouse with Cassie is a disaster, but we later see him and the mother there two years into the future where he proposes.
