In the hospital room, Lily asks if Ted changed his mind about Stella. He says that when he was in the cab and the car was coming at him, he saw something. It wasn't his life flashing before his eyes. But we do see a ton of scenes from episodes past flash, with pauses to show Lily, Marshall, Robin and Barney. Ted says that you only see the things you love. He sees Stella. We see the car hit the cab again. Ted says that Stella's the most important thing in his life and he has to get her back. "Miracle!" Marshall says happily. Robin says it's romantic and sweet, but not a miracle. "July. 1999. Kennedy Airport," Marshall says. We side-whoosh to see Marshall in the front of a customs line. He's wearing a tie-dyed shirt, a Rasta knit cap and carrying a huge backpack. The customs officer is very suspicious that Marshall is coming back from Amsterdam. Marshall's not helping by looking guilty as Hell. Marshall stresses that he wasn't there for any illegal reasons. The officer calls him "Bob Marley" and grabs his backpack. Just then, another officer comes in. "Shift change!" he announces. It's comedian Doug Benson. He's coughing and eating out of a box of cereal. The straight-laced officer exits and Doug takes over. "Oh, Amsterdam... all riiiiight!" he tells Marshall. "Float on through, brother." He flashes the peace sign. Coolest. Cop. Ever. Marshall giddily takes his backpack. "MIRACLE!" he shouts in the hospital room. Robin shakes her head.
On the street, Barney is still running. He urges Ted not to go into the light.
Ted has a visitor. It's Stella. Is it enough of a shock that we should go to commercial without another laugh? The people behind this episode seem to think so. After the commercials, everyone leaves the room to give them some privacy. Ted starts with, "I love you." She says she loves him, too. He asks if they can forget about what happened earlier and she says it's forgotten before he can even finish his sentence. She looks at his chart and everything looks to be all right. "I think you can handle it," she says. "Handle what?" he asks. She mounts him right on the hospital bed and they start kissing. Yow! Robin, Lily and Marshall all go, "Awwww." Marshall thinks it's a miracle that they went from breaking up to dry-humping. Robin says sarcastically that the Vatican would probably tell him that most of their certified miracles also involve dry humping. Sacrilegious!
