We learned last night, that a baby can change everything about a group of friends. We all know this is true but, it really took a toll on all the characters last night. The group has various reactions to the news that Marshall and Lily are "pregnant" and each persons struggles with how to change their life to make themselves feel better.
This episode addressed two big areas of the main story this week. First off, the bulk of the episode dealt with the Erikson's dealing with a pregnancy, which turns out to be a false positive (hence the title). I really enjoyed the way that Robin and Barney wanted to change their lives a bit once they found out. Barney's favorite things had to be my favorite part of the episode. It's nice to see that CBS is letting their shows poke fun at Oprah. After that scene however, the episode tended to slow down. Robin's decision to choose the research job seemed so obvious and I feel that the "Coin Flip Bimbo" job was sort of a forced joke and a simple reason to get Alex Trebek on the show. The ending, with Ted going all out on the group, was what I felt was the most genuine part of the episode. When he finally snapped, we learn that Ted just wants everyone to succeed at what they really want to do.
