Ted realizes that everyone dating in their 30s has some sort of emotional baggage that they carry with them, making ever harder to find "the one." He takes his date Royce, (who has yet to reveal her baggage) to see a new movie "The Wedding Bride" and is horrified to discover that it is written by Tony, the man Stella left him at the altar for, and the story is all about his experience of being left at the altar by Stella for Tony. In the movie, Ted is portrayed as a total jerk, Stella is the victim and Tony her savior. Ted's being left at the altar is his baggage he realizes, and admits the truth to Royce after freaking out about the movie. In the end she gives Ted another chance only for him to discover her baggage; that she sleeps in the same bed as her brother.
