Storyline

Ted runs into his ex-fiancée Stella and her husband Tony seven months after she left him at the altar. Instead of acting angry toward them, Ted is cordial, trying to prove that he is over Stella, which he truly does believe. Despite Ted's more than pleasant demeanor toward them, Tony has it in his mind that he has to make amends to Ted for stealing his fiancée since Ted, in his mind, looked so sad. After wealthy Tony makes some grand gestures to atone all which end up falling flat, Ted finally tells Tony how he really feels. Ted's comments lead to an unexpected outcome, which brings Stella running back to Ted. Ted, who really wants to be in love, has to decide what to do about Tony and Stella. Meanwhile, Barney has just received a speeding ticket. When he learns that all his friends have talked their way out of speeding tickets before, Barney bets them that he can as well. So Barney goes on a speeding mission, which too has an unexpected consequence. Written by Huggo

Goofs

In Season 4, Stella tells Ted that she got pregnant when she was 19 and has spent all her time since then (5 or 6 years) devoted to being a single mother. However, if Stella had given birth when she was 19 or 20, she would not have been able to complete medical school, become a dermatologist, and have her own reputable practice by the age of 24 or 25. It takes 8 years to complete medical school and 4 years to get a bachelor's degree. Stella would have been a freshman or sophomore in college when she got pregnant. See more »
