Rosie: I love that you're telling stories again.

Benjamin: This is the story before the story. This is where you and you begin. Because this is where I met your mom.
She was sitting right there in that chair.
Hang on.

Hey, so, I was walking by... and I saw, and I literally stopped like this, just stopped... and went, oh my God. That is the most beautiful woman I have ever seen in my entire life. But I've never done anything like this. I'd never gone and talked to a total stranger before. But she was right there.

And so I thought to myself, 20 seconds, right? Go.

Now I'm in the restaurant. And I'm terrified. Thinking about leaving. I can actually touch her. She's right there. She still hasn't seen me. And I still have 15 seconds of courage left. I'm going for it. Bravery.

Here's what I said.

Dylan: What?

Benjamin: I said... Excuse me.

Dylan: Hi, Mom.

Rosie: Hi, Mommy.

Benjamine: Why would an amazing woman like you even talk to someone like me?

Katherine: Why not?
