Storyline

Each of the friends somewhat admit that they have who they consider a "pit guy": someone who, if they had the power, would throw into a pit in their basement to banish forever, much like in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). For Ted, that person is his ex-architecture professor, Professor Vinick, who told Ted at the time that he had no talent and would never become an architect. Now that the GNB headquarters is about to open, Ted decides to invite Professor Vinick to the opening ceremonies to show him wrong. Professor Vinick's response makes Ted hold onto that grudge even harder. For Robin, that person is her co-worker, Patrice, who is now dating Barney. Robin will not however admit that Patrice is her pit guy because she still loves Barney herself. Robin has a chance to throw Patrice into her make believe pit when Robin has to fire a co-worker of her choice. For Lily and Marshall, that person is Daryl LaCorte, a colleague from Wesleyan who saw himself as their best friend after one ... Written by Huggo

Ted Mosby: This is gonna be a long jinx. Like Yom Kippur services long. The only difference is Yom Kippur's a fast and this one's gonna be a slow.

Marshall jinxes barney and he is not allowed to say another word till his name is said by someone present in the time of jinx.

Ted's building is finally gonna open the next day. so he sends an R.S.V.P to his architecture professor back in college Professor Vinick. only to find that he refuses as he doesn't remember him. this leads to a road trip where Marshall and lily meet their hack amigo friend Daryl and Ted tries to have revenge over Vinick and barney tries to get out of the jinx.
