He then tells her that Cassiopeia was a very beautiful queen, but when the gods got jealous, they turned her into a constellation. At the end of the night, the two are forced to decide some kind of next step. When the smitten Jonathan suggests an exchange of phone numbers, Sara balks and proposes an idea that will allow fate to take control of their future. .Sara asks Jonathan to write his name and phone number on a $5 bill, while she writes her name and number on the inside cover of a used copy of Love in the Time of Cholera.^ The odds of that happening are pretty stiff, of course, so she appeases Jon by writing her name and number inside a copy of Gabriel Garcia Marquez's novel, "Love in the Time of Cholera."

Seven years later, Jonathan is at an engagement party with his fiancé Halley Buchanan (Bridget Moynahan). On the same day, Sara comes home to her house to find Lars Hammond (John Corbett), a famous new age musician, proposing to her. As their wedding dates approach, both find themselves with a case of cold feet, and decide to return to New York in an attempt to find each other again.
Jonathan uses a practical approach. .He and his best friend Dean Kansky (Jeremy Piven) return to Bloomingdales in an attempt to find her name using an account number on the original sales receipt for the gloves.^ Adept performances by sidekicks Molly Shannon and Jeremy Piven and by Eugene Levy as a persnickety Bloomingdale's salesman provide buoyancy.

However, Dean smudges her last name, leaving them only an address. They venture to the address where they meet a painter Mr. Mignon, who has very little recollection of Sara. .However, he does recall that she lived there for a short time after being referred by a placement company, which he identifies as being located in a shop next to Serendipity 3. Jonathan and Dean follow the lead to find that the agency has moved and its former location is now a bridal shop.^ Maybe the next time serendipity or whatever brought them together; he’d give Naruto his number, just so they could keep in touch…nothing more.

Jonathan takes this as a sign that he is supposed to stop looking for Sara, and get married to Halley.
Sara leaves the hunt to fate. .She takes her best friend Eve (Molly Shannon) with her to New York, where she visits the locations of her date, hoping that fate will make Jonathan turn up.^ Now, whenever I feel that the river is beginning to catch me, I step back, take a deep breath, and make up my mind to do one thing at a time.

To her surprise, she finds her wallet got exchanged with Eve’s. .She pays the flight attendant $5 for the headset, and realizes she has the same $5 bill which Jonathan wrote on five years earlier.^ Another example was a US senate heraring that David appeared at earlier this year, for the Kerry-Boxer bill .

Jonathan, in the meantime, is wandering around Central Park. He finds Sara's jacket and uses it as a pillow as he lies down. As the first snowflake drops, the other pair of the gloves floats to him and he sees Sara. .They introduce themselves to each other formally for the first time.^ Anyone who uses one of these abbreviations when they mean the other may be considered basically uneducated and a danger to themselves and to society at large.

The film opened at #2 at the U.S. Box office raking in $13,309,241 USD in its opening weekend, behind Training Day. With an estimated budget of $28million, this was the first of Peter Chelsom's films to turn a profit[1]. .After some of the biggest commercial failures of all time[2], Serendipity marked the first of several box-office successes for Chelsom, peaking in 2009 with Hannah Montana: The Movie.^ I drove it home in 50 mph winds last week for the first time and I would say it will take some getting used to!

Soft-spoken and obsessive, Trager never looked the part of a hopeless romantic.
