Earlier in this episode when the gang is all at Quinn's apartment, Lily mentions that she was once with a dude who couldn't even fantasize about having a three way. "He was all, 'ooh she's your best friend.'" Then Robin asks, "what now?"


Lily fantasizes about a "slutty and bi-curious" Danish exchange student named Nadia.

Lobster Crawl

When Robin attempts to hook up with Barney and fails several times, Lily suggests getting freaky with a girl to entice him. Lily is excited to get to grind with Robin but she brings Brandi (her fun coworker who doesn't even care) to the bar for that purpose, so Lily is disappointed.

Lily begins to feel jealous and has a vision of Robin and Amanda having an affair so she scares off Amanda when Robin goes to the bathroom.

No Questions Asked

Lily and Robin share a Telepathic Conversation about Darren probably wanting to hook up with them, during which Lily suggests that the two of them can continue after Darren is finished and Robin gets weirded out.

Lily-Robin Kiss

Lily's bisexuality may be in reference to Alyson Hannigan's previous character (Willow Rosenberg on Buffy the Vampire Slayer) being a lesbian.
