"How I Met Your Mother" was sort of OK for most of last night. Didn't think the Robin subplot was all that effective (until it took that turn at the end), and the New Jersey vs. New York battle kind of dragged -- except for Marshall's speech. But then it turned me around with the use of "Jersey Girl," the Tom Waits song redone so endearingly by Bruce Springsteen. (See and hear, above.) A great fave, and well used -- although I don't think the show would want people to revisit the line about "we're gonna take that little brat of yours and drop her off at your mom's." Still, a great save.
