He and his friends spend summer weekends in Newport, Rhode Island, which is the only break Ted allows himself from the grind of his job. After a devastating loss at work, he leaves for Newport where he meets his friends new girlfriend, Caroline. Over that first weekend, Ted and Caroline fall in love.
