Gorgeous Ugly Betty vet Becki Newton began her recurring gig as the first woman to match wits with Barney (Neil Patrick Harris) and win; after he tried to pick her up in a bar by mentioning that he suffers from Enormous Penis Syndrome, she informed him she doesn't suffer from I'm A Gullible Dumb-ass Disorder. But the big reveal came when we learned Newton's character is a stripper at one of Mr. Stinson's favorite hangouts.

Meanwhile, HIMYM's failed Kal Penn-Cobie Smulders chemistry experiment ended when Kevin proposed to Robin and she accepted — until he withdrew the offer after she informed him she never wants to have children, even if she could.

What did you think of last night's HIMYM?
