Recap

Ted tells his children that in the fall of 2011, all of his friends were in relationships. So, when Barney's brother visited, there were some logistical issues. Nora excuses herself to the bathroom, claiming it's so she can have her own seat since they really do need a bigger booth at this point. Barney tells the crew that Nora is going to finally let him have sex with her, based on the fact that she told him that she has a special treat for him tonight. In the flashback, he air guitars ala Bill and Ted. She tells him that she hopes he's ready for tonight, because he's going to be using muscles that he doesn't know he has yet and she hopes he'll have aspirin, because his bum is going to be killing him tomorrow night. This perplexes the crew, as well as Barney. She tells him that they are going ice skating and then she tells him that after that, they are going to shag. This makes Barney very happy...
