Synopsis: This is the story of how Ted (Radnor) met his wife. It all started when Ted’s best friend, Marshall (Segel), dropped the bombshell that he was going to propose to his longtime girlfriend, Lily (Hannigan), a kindergarten teacher. At that moment, Ted realized that he had better get a move on if he, too, hopes to find true love. Helping him in his quest is his friend Barney (Harris), a confirmed bachelor. When Ted meets Robin (Smulders), he’s sure it’s love at first sight, but destiny has something else in store.
