At the party, Ted seems to think that Barney’s theory is actually working. Firstly, there are too many girls around him (something he’s not used to), secondly, he has got two Champagne bottles on someone else’s bill, and even gets asked by a gorgeous woman (who is married btw). What are the odds? Fast forward to the next morning, Ted wakes up with a dark eye and realizes he has committed credit fraud and even made out with a married woman.
Also, Ted abandoned his date, wanted to get intimate with another woman while clarifying he will never see her again, and doing all of this while being drunk. So, no matter which party you go to, never abandon your date, drink too much, and commit any crime. Okay?
