The Eight Slaps were a series of slaps that Marshall Eriksen could give out to Barney Stinson from the episode Slap Bet to eternity. Originally, only five slaps were able to be issued, but in exchange for not wearing the Ducky Tie, Marshall got three extra slaps in Disaster Averted. The Slap Bet is completed in The End of the Aisle.

The Eight SlapsEdit

The slaps which have been issued by Marshall took place in the following episodes:

  1. Slap Bet
  2. Stuff
  3. Slapsgiving
  4. Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap
  5. Disaster Averted
  6. Disaster Averted
  7. Slapsgiving 3: Slappointment in Slapmarra
  8. The End of the Aisle


  • First Slap
  • Second Slap
  • Third Slap
  • Fourth Slap
  • Fifth Slap
  • Sixth Slap
  • Seventh Slap
  • The Final Slap


  • The plot in Slapsgiving 3 says that the Slap of a Million Exploding Suns was the final slap, but actually there was still one slap left. The final one was shown in The End of the Aisle.
  • In Slapsgiving 3, the line 'That's four' Marshall said after slapping Barney has been edited out in the international version of the episode that has aired after the US air date. However the version shown in Britain did contain this line.
  • According to the slap bet website there is one more slap remaining, how ever this is likely due to the short air time difference between Slapsgiving 3 and The End of the Aisle, as well as the short time between the 2 slaps due to them occurring only a day apart
