After the funeral, Alan, Jake and Evelyn decide they have to sell the house. After people come in, nobody buys the house. Sometime later, Alan receives the ashes of Charlie. Alan gives a heartfelt goodbye to his late brother, telling him how much he loves him and will miss him. He also thanks him for allowing him and Jake to move in and stay for the past 8 years.

Alan invites the young man to come in to use the phone. He calls his wife
Bridget who says she will not take him back. Alan tells his story and how he was in the same situation. He reveals himself to be Walden Schmidt (prompting Alan to say the episode title "Nice to Meet You, Walden Schmidt"). After revealing to be worth $1.3 billion, the two go out to drink. At the bar, Walden and Alan attempt to pick up two girls, and Walden breaks down in tears. Here, the girls fall in love with him.
