Without Robin, the now-four-person gang decides to crash a snooty party featuring such guests as Arianna Huffington, Peter Bogdanovich, and New York Times crossword editor Will Shortz (all appearing as themselves). Ted, of course, feels right at home among these opera-going, wine-tasting, poetry-reciting intellectuals.
