MacLaren's; Present: Marshall tells Robin they explained everything to Stan and he ended up helping them. We flash back to Stan and his romantic suggestions. "Why don't you tell Ted that just knowing he's out there thinking about you, caring about you -- makes you feel safe? So, all your fears, all your yesterdays wash away, and only hope remains in the promise of his embrace." Back in the present, Robin's impressed and wants to know who this Stan is. The guys explain that he's a security guard who works nights and takes lunch at MacLaren's each day. We flash back to...

I love you." He takes a sip of his Scotch as Stan thinks over his confession. Finally, Stan nods and says, "That's cool."

Time passes. The guys are still waiting for a reply. Marshall is fretting. "Maybe he's not in love with us." Hee. Barney is indignant. "How can he not be in love with us? We're everything he's looking for!" Marshall's disgusted. "I don't get men." Stan rises to leave. He has to get to work. Marshall grabs Stan's shoulder and chest. "Will you -- will you be back?" Softly, Stan says he'll be back "when the wind and fates and chance bring me back." His voice returns to a regular tone. "Which will be tomorrow. It's cheese steak day." And we flash forward to...
