Later, Ted goes with Robin to see Lily and he immediately sees right through Lily. Robin doesn’t believe in Ted’s theory so the two make a bet. Lily receives a phone call from her realtor explaining that she didn’t get the apartment of her choice because she couldn’t commit. Could this be a metaphor for her and Marshall?
