Marshall, already ambivalent about working for GNB, a corporate shark that fires people with no regard, refuses to fire his assistant Randy even though Randy is terrible at his job. Pushed to the limit, Marshall gives in and fires him, only to be wrought with guilt and regret. However, unbeknownst to Marshall, Randy is thrilled as he now gets severance pay and can follow his dream to start his own namesake brewery "Wharmpiss" beer. After begging his boss, Arthur to let him re-hire Randy, Marshall does so and a now desperate Randy trashes Marshall's office in hopes of getting fired again because if he quits he does not get severance pay. Marshall realizes that firing Randy is helping him follow his dream, and in the end he does so with a clean conscience. Meanwhile, the gang is enjoying their annual ritual of watching the post Halloween morning walk of shame "parade" and they are surprised to see Robin, dressed as a nurse in that mix. After much speculation and questioning, Lily is convinced Robin slept with Randy who has a crush on her but that Robin is just too embarrassed to admit it. However, after Randy tells them this is not what happened, Robin finally admits the truth: she was shooting a commercial for incontinence adult diapers, playing a nurse for the elderly. She did this to compete with her new co-host Becky who got lots of attention for her commercial for a local boat show. Ted struggles with all the backlash he is getting from Zoey about designing the new GNB headquarters that is being built on the site of a historic building. To makes matters worse, Zoey enrolls as a student in his University class and temporarily turns his students who loved him against him, but ultimately with the help of Lily and her kindergarten-teaching tactics, he regains control of his class.
