How I Met Your Mother

The Perfect Week - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: Lily and Marshall mention that they've been using the same toothbrush ever since they've been together, but in the 14th episode of the 1st season, "Zip, zip, zip", Marshall and Lily are simultaneously brushing their teeth with a tooth brush each (before Ted and Victoria get home).

As he moves over to the booth, he tells the people sitting there to get out. You can see that the girl takes her phone with her, and there is no other phone anywhere on the table. A few seconds later, she comes back saying that she left her phone, and now the phone is visible on the table.

Scene 1, 12 minutes and 23 seconds: Marshall's remotes has a battery in while Ted's is out. Scene 2, 12m 40s: Marshall's Xbox control has no battery in. Scene 3, 12m 51s: Marshall's battery is back in the controller. Scene 4, 12m 58s: Marshall's battery is out again. Scene 5, 13m 44s: Marshall's battery is back in.

How I Met Everyone Else - S3-E5
