Ted has just started dating a woman named Royce. Like all the other relationships he's ever had, he's waiting to learn what baggage Royce is carrying that will ultimately ruin the relationship. When Ted and Royce go to see a movie called The Wedding Bride, Ted learns that he too carries some baggage, namely that he was once left at the altar. What makes this baggage worse is that the movie, which is now a big hit, was written by Stella's husband, Tony Grafanello, about Ted and Stella's relationship and break-up where the Ted character, named Jed Moseley, is painted as the bad guy and the Tony character the good guy. Perpetually happy Marshall helps Ted understand how to deal with his baggage. Written by

Sorry, Ted, you're screwed.
No! You know what? Ted is not screwed. Do you guys wanna know why I'm always nice to everyone? It's because I don't care about baggage. I mean, most people, they see a person walking down the street with that big, heavy bag they're carrying, and they just walk on by. But not me. I look at them, and I say... I say: "Howdy, stranger. Can I give you a hand with that?" And do you know who taught me to be that way? A guy called Ted Mosby.
