    The references to the quote I can find on the googles say "was", but he could have meant was in the sense that the season is done. :)

    ...or "was" in that the show takes place in the past. :)

    I don't really think you can say that since it's a fictional universe. :)

    So, if Ted wasn't doing anything with the locket at the time (because he had already done it), why did he want to ditch Lilly?

    Either they haven't shown us yet or Ted really is that much of a dork.

    They eventually made us think that he wanted to present the locket to Robin without Lilly around. Remember something dawning on Lilly that it was about the locket and she ran to intercept the handing over of the present from Ted to Robin. But the present wound up being a photo. I took it to mean that Ted changed his mind after dumping Lilly at the train station.

    I think the creepy inkeeper's (the pharmacist from Desperate Housewives) comment about children being conceived at the Farhampton Inn was more than a little bit of foreshadowing.

    I would have expected a "why did you want me to demand to get out of the car" conversation between Ted and Lilly. I suppose we may still see one.

    "Because, kids, sometimes you do things for a reason that you don't know you did them. If I hadn't dumped Aunt Lilly off at the train station, she wouldn't have met your mother..."

    Good call. For all we know they are twins, and were BOTH conceived at the Inn.
