Barney applies to be a contestant on The Price is Right so he can meet Bob Barker, whom he claims is his father. Meanwhile, Marshall and Lily try to spend a little time apart before their wedding, and Ted works on his best man toast.

Quote from Ted

[flashback to two weeks before Marshall and Lily's wedding:]
Ted: Marshall, what are you doing?
Marshall: Going to the bathroom.
Ted: In the hall?
Marshall: Sleepwalking?
Ted: You're wide awake.
Marshall: Robbing us?
Ted: Dude.
[back to the wedding:]
Ted: [v.o.] Turns out, all week long he'd been sneaking out to a hotel on 72nd, to meet Lily.


Quote from Ted

[wedding toast:]
Ted: And so Lily and Marshall failed in their experiment with apartness, but they succeeded in getting Lily into her dress. You know, there really are a million things I could tell you about Lily and Marshall, but really, the only thing you need to know is that ten years into their relationship, they still couldn't spend a single night apart. May they never have to again. To Lily and Marshall.
All: To Lily and Marshall.
Future Ted: [v.o.] Now, kids, the story of Lily and Marshall's wedding is a good one. No matter how perfectly you plan your... You know, wait a second, guys. I'll get to that. First, I've got to tell you what happened with Barney.

Quote from Barney

Bob Barker: Rich, what is the name of our next participant?
Rich Fields: [v.o.] Bob, it's Barney Stinson! Come on down! You're the next contestant on The Price Is Right.
Bob Barker: Working his way out. High-five here, high-five there. A big old hug here. Welcome to contestant's row, Barney. Nice suit.
Barney: Thanks, Da- Bob.

Quote from Barney

Bob Barker: Very well, Barney, you have seen the first showcase. Do you want to bid on it or do you want to pass it to Millie?
Barney: Please, no car and an above-ground spa? Pass.

Quote from Marshall

Marshall: [recording] Um, I thought since we're going to be apart for two whole weeks, I would sing you your night-night song. Night-night, Lily Night-night, Lily It's time to go to bed, oh, my silly, little Lily Time to rest your little head Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la Come on, Ted.
Ted: No, it's weird.
Marshall: You promised.
Both: Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la Sha-la-la-la-la
