Marshall and Lily have been yearning for another couple to double-date with despite the number of failed dates they have had with other couples. Thrilled that there is finally another couple in their group, Marshall and Lily invite Barney and Robin over their apartment for game night. When Marshall and Lily are overbearing throughout the double-date, Barney and Robin create some space between the two so that they can avoid another painful evening. Meanwhile, Ted has been testing his luck with the ladies at the bar. Just when Ted thinks he is becoming a ladies' magnet Barney and Robin alert him to the idea that these women are only flirting with him to have a convenient place to crash after a night at the bar. For this, they deem Ted the "sexless innkeeper." Marshall and Lily show up to the bar with a brand new couple, one they actually get along with. Barney and Robin realize that they miss their friends and surprisingly have a longing for double-dates as well.
