Robin asks Barney to keep the secret that she might be pregnant and he's the father. Meanwhile, Marshall tries to decorate the house for Christmas with the help of a neighbor kid.

Quote from Ted

Ted: Well, lucky for us, someone at this table is skilled in the art of detection. Robin's upset. She and Kevin are having trouble. He cheated on her.
Lily: No way. Kevin's an honest, decent guy who never on his best day could pull a hotter chick than Robin.
Ted: Maybe Robin cheated on him. Maybe Robin is the dirty bird who slept with someone else.
Barney: I don't know, this pole-vaulting thing seems like a slam dunk to me.
Lily: Oh, it is so obvious. Barney. What is the name of that guy you worked with... Uh, Randy? It was Randy.
Ted: Wait a second. I just cracked this case. The little maple leaf onesie. It made her homesick. That's why she's so upset. She's not going home for Christmas. She wants me to invite her to Ohio.
Barney: [loudly] That's got to be it!
Lily: Either that or she slept with Barney.
[Ted and Lily laugh. Barney joins in with exaggerated cackling]

Quote from Marshall

Lily: Oh, you must be Scott.
Scott: Oh, hello, ma'am. It's nice to finally see your face. Well, I'd better go hit those books.
Lily: Hold it right there, young man. This is for helping out my husband.
Scott: Wow, 50 bucks. Merry Christmas.
[Lily walks in and finds the house trashed. Marshall yells from the roof:]
Marshall: Lily!

Quote from Robin

Ted: I thought you were bummed about not going home for Christmas.
Robin: Are you kidding? I love New York at Christmas. It's so quiet and peaceful. Got my eggnog to keep me company, so...
Ted: Robin, what's wrong?
Robin: Nothing.
Ted: Just tell me.
Robin: Why do you need to know so bad?
Ted: So I can cheer you up.
Robin: It's not your job to cheer me up.
Ted: Yes, it is. Cheering you up is my job.
Robin: Well, then, you're fired.
Ted: You can't fire me. I'm union, bitch.
Robin: It's not your job to cheer me up.
Ted: Yes, it is.
Robin: No, it's not.
Ted: Yes, it is.
Robin: No, it's not. Merry Christmas, Ted.
Ted: Merry Christmas.
