Watch How I Met Your Mother Season 9 Episode 17 Online. While out looking for an inebriated Barney on the day of the wedding, Robin and Ted reminisce about past relationships. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily finally resolve their issues and Barney befriends two young guys eager to meet women.
This episode is the continuation from How Your Mother Met Me: At MacLaren’s Pub in September 2005, a woman passes by Barney and Ted as they get ready for another round of “Have you met Ted?” It turns out that the woman, Kelly, went to the wrong MacLaren’s Pub and takes a cab to another MacLaren’s on the East Side to join The Mother (her roommate) on her 21st birthday.
She awaits the arrival of her boyfriend Max only to receive a call informing her of his death. After the funeral service, she returns to the apartment to open Max’s last gift to her – a ukulele.
At St Patrick’s Day three years later, Kelly encourages The Mother to go out and date again, bringing her to the same bar where Ted and Barney are celebrating. The two women run into Mitch, her old orchestra instructor who was then a music teacher at a Bronx public school. Inspired by his work, The Mother offers Mitch her cello and they head back to her apartment to get it. However, The Mother prepares the cello only to see Mitch pull off The Naked Man.
She is disgusted at his move, but remembers her yellow umbrella at the bar and goes out to get it, leaving behind Kelly (who earlier rebuffed Barney at the bar) to have sex with Mitch. She learns that a “super inconsiderate person” (Ted) took the umbrella. The Mother expresses her desire to end poverty by taking up economics in college.
