Ted and Loving It
Ted's ex was mentioned in the last episode -- will we ever get to meet her?
Harrington: Not in the episodes coming up, and I'm not sure if we come back [to it]. She could very well turn into the Vera of Cheers, or the -- who was the character on Frasier we didn't see? Niles' wife? But we might -- talking to Victor, again, he was talking about Ted's background. He's wearing a suit, and he's in a conservative environment, in a sort of a right-wing conservative company, but if his wife is off to save the world, then there's probably a part of Ted that was like that in his past as well. So we're talking about looking into that and seeing where Ted came from, and why he ended up at Veridian.
Veridian research generates some crazy products. Anything fun coming up?
Harrington: Well, there's a couple of things that I think are funny. Linda gets the opportunity to try to help green the building, because she's sees a commercial -- you know how they do the Veridian Dynamics commercials? -- and it's about greening their offices. So after the commercial break, she talks about how she saw a commercial, and she wants to do that as a project, so I go to Veronica and ask her if she can have some money to do that, and Veronica says, "Well, there is no project to green the building," And I say, "Yes there is, there's a commercial about it," and she says, "I didn't say there wasn't a commercial, we're just not doing the project." So Ted, in his longing for Linda, decides to move some money around in the office and get her some money to do it, and she then goes through a water filtration system made from urine, which I test unknowingly. She goes to Phil and Lem, and they help her with splicing the DNA of fireflies and flowers to create glowing flowers. And then our last one is facial recognition online, for scanning photos. In the meeting, we use Veronica's photo to show the group, and it scans anywhere she's ever been online ever, and up pops a very interesting photo that will take us into a little bit of Veronica's personal life away from the office and the job she's been moonlighting at, and it's really quite funny.
