Unfortunately, Ted and Victoria made a deal that they will never see each other again after that night and they do not exchange telephone numbers or anything else. The morning after the wedding party, Ted wants desperately to see the girl again. So he starts searching for her and asks anyone from the wedding who could have possibly know her, but she seems to be lost. Written by
Did You Know?
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
Wow, the Peace Corps?
Yeah, I ship out tomorrow for two years. You know, some people say the Peace Corps is the most noble thing a person can do. To those people, I say, "Is it?" And usually they say, "yes it is."
