Meanwhile, Marshall needs a new suit for an interview for an internship position at the Natural Resources Defense Council. Barney tells him that he will take Marshall to his tailor, and outfits Marshall with a very nice suit. At the same time, Lily is shopping for a wedding dress, but cannot find anything she likes. Victoria goes and gets one of the nice dresses from the front window, and Lily loves the dress. Although Lily does not intend to buy it, she accidentally sits down in the free cake provided by the bridal shop, and then rips it. Marshall gets the bill for the suit from Barney, and finds out that he must pay $4000 for it, but initially refuses an offer to come work for Barney. He turns to Lily and says he'll do whatever it takes, at which point Lily breaks down and reveals that she ruined the dress, and Marshall, seeing no other way to pay for $12,000 of clothes in a timely manner, decides to go work for Barney.
In helping Ted and Victoria make their decisions, Marshall and Lily tell two versions of the same story. At one point, Lily took an art class over in Paris one summer. According to Marshall, Lily had met this strange man named Gabriel, and thought he was moving in on Lily. Marshall went over to France, and told Gabriel to stay away from Lily. According to Lily, Gabriel was a homely girl who was self-conscious about her mustache, and she and Lily were good friends, but suddenly she stopped talking to Lily about halfway through the summer, leaving Lily friendless. Neither of them know the other's story.
At the airport, Ted and Victoria decide to give long distance a try, both saying that it will work... however Future Ted tells his kids that it didn't, and that long-distance relationships hardly ever work... but that story is for later.
- Ted says he's attracted to 'dog people'. Robin has five dogs, a possible hint towards his relationship with her.
- Ted makes a joke about getting back together, even if they aren't single, when Victoria gets back from Germany. This happens when she leaves her fiancée, Klaus, in Farhampton.
|Ted:||'Long distance' is a lie teenagers tell each other to get laid the summer before college.|
|Marshall:||Hey baby, how's the dress place?|
|Lily:||Everything's so fluffy and white, it's like shopping in a marshmallow! How's Barney´s tailor?|
|Marshall:||Everything here is dark, sketchy, and seems illegal; It's like shopping in Barney's mind.|
|Barney:||Hey, don't knock long distance relationships. I really think they can work.|
|Barney:||Absolutely. I'm juggling four right now. There's Lisa in Madrid, Erika in Tokeyo. There's Lora in Denmark and Kelly on 34th Street. (Irish Accent)The lass thinks I'm a humble sheep shearer from Kelharny.|
|Lily:||Long distance, it's all talking and no sex. Kill me now.|
|Marshall:||Long distance, it's all talking and no sex. Kill me now.|
|Robin:||A cat person, why am I not surprised?|
