How I Met Your Mother Season 8 Review “The Ashtray”

In earlier seasons, How I Met Your Mother has told the same story multiple times from the varying perspectives of different characters when Ted, Marshall, Barney, Lily, or Robin debate how they remember certain events. This week’s episode of How I Met Your Mother, "The Ashtray", told the same story three times with increasing clarity and comedy.

Ted’s version of his encounter with The Captain was amusing, but even before we found out the truth, his version of the story didn’t seem very coherent. When Robin stepped in and explained that his memories had been fogged because he had just shared a "sandwich" with Boats-boats-boats-Becky, things actually started to make more sense.
