On “How I Met Your Mother”: We’re back to the very choppy days of last season this week, with a directionless episode about Goliath National Bank making PSAs about how much it cares. Barney makes one. New incompetent guy Randy makes one. Bob Odenkirk (Bossman Arthur) makes one. But Marshall refuses. He just can’t be one of the GNB liars, and he will never ever fire anyone. But Randy really is incompetent, and he keeps shredding valuable contracts. So, eventually, Marshall lets him go.
After a dream in which Randy shoves himself down the shredder, Marshall begs Arthur to let him rehire him, so Arthur does. The catch is that Randy was super-excited to be fired with severance because he wanted to use that money to start brewing his own beer. The unfortunate thing is that he names it Wharmpess (say it aloud), which is his last name. He tries hard to get fired again, but Marshall won’t do it until he tastes a bottle of delicious Wharmpess.
Speaking of warm piss, Robin has a secret, and Lily wants the poop. She assumes Robin’s slept with someone they know, and eventually decides it was Randy. Ultimately, though, Robin admits there was no mystery sex. She actually made a commercial to compete with her annoying co-anchor Becky’s own commercial. Robin’s was about adult diapers, and she was the one peeing herself. She hopes they’ll choose not to run it and the gang won’t see it, but Saget!Ted tells us from the future that the commercial will run for seven years. Also: Ted’s stuck dealing with Zoey again, after she joins his class to turn everyone against him and his new GNB building (am I the only one who thought he quit teaching to take the GNB job?).
