how i met your mother recapping: who wants to be a godparent?

Previously on How I Met Your Mother: Nannies

The whole gang at mclarens

What are we looking at?

With a nanny chosen, Marshall and Lily now have a babysitter whenever they want. They’re first order of business McLaren’s for an all night rager. Oh wait nope, their time away from Marvin will be much needed alone time. It’s during this alone time, while strolling through the streets of New York, that they realize life is a death trap. With Marvin, they now see the importance of appointing a godparent.

Marshall’s mom? No go. Lily’s Mom? Um, no. Lily’s Dad? Thanks but nooooo thanks. Marshall’s brother? Maybe, oh wait nope, he left his family and moved to an island. Three contenders left and there’s obviously only one way to handle this. With the game show: WHO WANTS TO BE A GODPARENT?

The game is pretty even with Barney, Ted, and Robin all playing their strength how they would handle a particular situation. Until Ted snaps and claims he’s the obvious choice, and then the friendly game turns into an argument and ends with Barney, Ted, and Robin accusing Lily and Marshall of being bad friends, then leaving.

Marshall and Lily feel justified, but soon come to realize that just because they have Marvin, that doesn’t mean they can neglect the other important people in their life. They join Ted, Barney, and Robin at McLaren’s and close the bar down, just like old times.

Barney, Robin, Ted, who wants to be a godparent?

Do you really want one of these idiots raising Marvin?

And who is the godparent? Ted, Robin, and Barney will share that title when it comes to baby Marvin.

Best/Funniest Moments

  • Robin explaining why Marshall and Lily are no longer around
  • Ted’s Infosaurus sock puppet
  • Little Marvin all suited up in any Barney hypothetical situation


Barney: “If Ted raises him the poor kids still gonna be a virgin when he’s 13. I’m the obvious choice.”
Robin: “Hey look, as the only one here packin’ a va;g I got a natural instinct for nurturing and crap like that plus I could teach him how to bow hunt.”

Barney: “Barney Stinson how may I direct my penis?”

Ted: “If called upon, I’d be honored to raise Marvin.”
Robin: “If you want him to be raised by his underwear on a flagpole, Teds your guy. If you want him pulling the cord on some other nerds panties, I’m your guy.”

Kristen is a confused young adult who sometimes thinks TV shows are actually her life. Wouldn’t that be cool? Unless she was a victim on Dexter, or a deranged privileged teenager on gossip girl, or a wolf on teen wolf, or Liz Lemon! Never mind. It wouldn’t be cool. Kristen is a young adult.

modern family recapping: little bo bleep

Previously on Modern Family: Egg Drop

Lily Light up Dress

So there was a big hoopla about tonight’s episode of Modern Family, because of the anticipated f-bomb dropped by Lily. If it happens in real life, there is no reason to make such a stink about it happening on TV. Television isn’t an idyllic place. So let’s all get over it. Great.

Lily is going to be a flower girl and her dress a light up replica of Little Bo Peep. Classy. Jay comes home from work to find Stella is “drowning in the pool” he immediately jumps in and saves her. He’s panicked and spilling his worries to Gloria and Manny when Stella jumps in the pool again. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? The Dunphy’s are helping Claire prepare for her debate by posing a mock debate and pointing out everything she does wrong.

Claire pointing

Cam is helping Lily prepare for her role as flower girl because of his extensive experience as a ring bearer. Lily messes up and says “oh bleep” with pixilation over the mouth (such a big fuss over an implied curse, dear lord get over it). Cam runs out of the room laughing and Mitchell looks on astonished. They decide to deny/ignore and pretend she said something else. But then she repeats the word and Cam runs out of the room laughing while Mitchell looks on astonished.

Claire is nervous about the debate and doesn’t feel the support of her family, she only feels criticized. Alex encourages her to just be a strong powerful woman and Claire feels ready. Plus Jay, Manny, Gloria, and Stella (who, Jay worries, is suicidal and will hurt herself if left alone) show up to lend Claire some support. Claire is rocking the debate until her opponent takes a personal stab. At which point, Claire and Phil, lose their cool and get made into a viral auto-tuned Youtube video. Gloria is getting ready for the wedding when she notices Stella is missing. Gloria finds her standing on the ledge of the pool. Gloria tries to talk her down but Stella takes the plunge anyway. Gloria, in truly hysterical fashion, jumps into the pool and saves Stella.

 Light up dresses!

Lily is the most hideously cute thing ever as she walks down the aisle in her light up dress. And the bridesmaids’ dresses are just hideous. OH, WAIT A MINUTE!!!! The bride’s dress lights up too! Oh in the name of all that is trashy! Cam starts to cry at the start of the wedding. Lily, in an effort to cheer him up, curses again, in front of the whole church. Everyone bursts out laughing. Bet she won’t quit on that word for a while.

Best/Funniest Moments

  • Cam and Mitchell imparting their style knowledge on Lily.
  • Jay toweling off Stella instead of Gloria.
  • Auto-tuned Phil and Claire


Lily (talking about the dress): “I love it!”
Cam and Mitchell: “No you don’t”

Mitchell: “Oh so we’re becoming political. We leave town for the gay pride parade because we hate traffic.”

Luke: “You yelled at my teacher for calling me special.”
Claire: “Hunnie that wasn’t a compliment.”
