Storyline

It's New Year's Eve 2005, and Ted wants to pull out all the stops for his friends. He decides to rent a limo (driven by their old cabbie friend Ranjit) which will take them to each of their five chosen parties in three hours, and return to the best one by midnight to ring in the new year. They are on a tight time schedule so there is no room for change or improvisation from the plan. Not included in their night is Robin as she is planning on spending it with her new boyfriend Derek. But in her place is Ted's date, the unusually friendly Marybeth. The night starts off well, but one wrench after another another is thrown into the plan, some which are definite nuisances, while others they gladly accommodate. But even those in the latter category don't always come off as they anticipate, especially when it involves one of the group needing to head off alone. Will they be at their dream party at midnight and will they all be together? Written by Huggo

Trivia

Whilst the gang are driving around in the Limo and MaryBeth (Ted's date) stands up to get some air through the sunroof, they are parked out side 'Nolita', the restaurant that Kitchen Confidential (2005) was based in. See more »

Goofs

The first song on Barney's "Get Psyched" mix is actually "I Wanna Rock" by Twisted Sister, as can be seen when he holds up the CD, although "You Give Love a Bad Name" by Bon Jovi plays every time he punches play. See more »

Quotes

Narrator: You probably want to feel bad for your old man at this point in the story. Well, don't. Not every night has a happy ending. But all of it's important. All of it was leading somewhere. Because suddenly, it was 2006. And 2006 was a big one.
