The slutty pumpkin (Katie Holmes)
"There's just something interesting about someone being out there who Ted has never met, but saw across a crowded room. I don't want to rule anything out on that one. That's the kind of loose end that we like to have, and I don't want to sort of hint at it one way or the other. … The slutty pumpkin's still out there in the world, and New York is not as big a city as we think. That could come back around."

In Season 7, the slutty pumpkin returns. Ted tracks her down after he sees the costume hanging in the window of a costume shop and finally meets Naomi. She was played by Katie Holmes and had awful chemistry with Ted; they date for a short while before finally admitting that their relationship was super-awkward, then break up amicably.
