Storyline

Ted is relating to his kids the story of a woman he met over the Internet in 2007 whose name he no longer remembers, so refers to her only as "Blahblah". Before meeting her, Barney believes Blahblah is probably crazy as are all women prowling the Internet for a hook-up, but that she is probably hot to overcome that craziness. After the gang meets Blahblah, Barney's assertions are strengthened. But in getting to know Blahblah and Blahblah getting to know everyone else, the gang discuss the first time each met the other. Lily and Marshall have told their story so often that they have it down to a fine art. But everyone else's story may have the same basic structure from both parties involved, but it's the subtleties that seem to differ. The story of Ted and Lily's first meeting is especially troublesome, and the true details which may never be totally known unless an impartial third party who may have been more lucid at the event comes forward.

Trivia

Back in Season 1, in How I Met Your Mother: The Wedding (2006), when Ted says that Claudia is crazy, Barney replies that, to be fair, she is equally hot. See more »

Goofs

When Barney uses his hot/crazy graph with the example of a girl he dated he uses the graph wrong. He said that she loses ten pounds which indicates she's got hotter but instead he draws a line which actually said she's got less crazy. And the following line should be that she got crazier but instead he draws a line that said she's getting hotter and crazier, and finally he again draws a line that makes the girl less crazy instead of hotter.

Quotes

Barney: Ted, the only hot girls that troll the internet for dudes are crazy, hookers or dudes.
Ted Mosby: Okay, she's not crazy, she's not a hooker, she's not a dude. Although there's this guy I pass on my way to work every day that's all three. Scares the crap out of me.

The Hot/Crazy scale
11 December 2014 | by slightlymad22See all my reviews

We first see Barney's Hot/Crazy scale in this episode.

Plot In A Paragraph: Ted turns up at the bar with a girl who he met on the Internet. Embarrassed by this she asks him to go along with a fake story of how they met. Barney insists if she is hot, then she must be crazy, as hot sane girls do not pick up men on the Internet. He then shows Ted the Hot/Crazy scale. Meanwhile thought the course of the night and Ted tells the story of how he met everyone else, we see how Teds date ranks on Barney's scale.

The severe where Barney explains the Hot/Crazy scale is one of my favourites of this season. It's simply brilliant
