Ted has an interview in Chicago for what he considers his dream job. But he and Robin have just missed their flight and are trying whatever they can to catch another flight to get to Chicago in time for his interview. As they go on their quest, they reminisce about the events that led up to them missing the flight. The story started six months earlier, the story elements which involve the two of them, Barney, Marshall and Lily, and which include a court date that morning, a subway ride gone wrong and jumping the turnstile, training for and running the New York City Marathon, a wedding dress sale, a never ending car alarm, a hot dog dinner and a found 1939 penny. Ultimately, who will Ted trace the missing flight back to? But as Ted recounts this story to his children in 2030, he considers the penny to be his lucky penny for the destiny it brought. Written by
