“Canning Randy” Season 6, Episode 7
This episode takes place during Halloween, but the holiday is not the primary focus. This episode begins with Ted teaching an architecture class on Halloween. His class adores him, but when Zoey tells them Ted is tearing down the Arcadian they all begin to hate him and protest his building. Meanwhile, Marshall struggles with firing his highly inept co-worker, Randy. Robin begins to feel overshadowed by her co-host, Becky, and does an embarrassing commercial to try to increase her fame. The episode does contain a Halloween party and Robin does the after Halloween walk of shame from her commercial, but the episode is more plot-driven than themed.
