    Okay. The girlfriend is looking for a story that her mom really liked from years back that she would like to surprise her with for X-Mas. I was hoping some of you geniuses could help put a name to it. The description is a little thin, but here it is in her words:

    It has something to do with a penny and time travel (pretty thin, i know, but that's all i can remember her telling me).


    If need be, we can try to do a stealth interrogation on the mother to try and get some more details without blowing our cover, but see what you guys can do with that. Appreciate the help. Erf.

    That's pretty sketchy, but I know Richard Matheson's novel Bid Time Return has time travel and a penny. It was the basis for a romantic time travel movie Christopher Reeve made (Somewhere in Time).
