This week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, "The Over-Correction," got practically the entire gang wrapped up in Barney and Patrice’s business. It might not have been much of a surprise to see Robin breaking into Barney’s place on her own, but Lily and Ted got mixed up in Robin’s attempt to steal Barney’s Playbook in an unexpected and rather entertaining turn of events.
