The series received an initial order of 13 episodes. Because early episodes got mediocre ratings, the writers wrote this episode so that, if the show got cancelled, they could gracefully end the series with Victoria being the mother. The plan was to have Ted enter the bakery, Victoria saying, "Oh, thank God.", them kissing, and then older Ted saying in a voiceover, "And that, kids, is the story of How I Met Your Mother." See more

I really should give this money to the Peace Corps. They've done so much for me lately.
