A few seconds later, she comes back saying that she left her phone, and now the phone is visible on the table.

A Demon

The Naked Truth - S7-E2

Revealing mistake: While showing the clip of Marshall streaking the first time, you can see thumbnails for videos of him streaking in New York. Those videos were created later that day and could not already be posted. One also shows a woman in yellow and appears to be a retake of the scene.

Everything Must Go - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Lily is selling her favourite dress and is saying how she got a two syllable damn, the flashback shows her with the hairstyle she got after coming back from San Francisco, even though she said it happened in 2004. She should have had her shorter, lighter coloured hair.

xx:xx:xx

Where Were We? - S2-E1

Other mistake: When Ted and Robin borrow Marshall's Fiero and are sitting in the car talking as Ted drives, you can hear the beat of a song playing in the car that is not the Proclaimers' I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles), which in many future episodes is referenced as the only song that can be played in that car due to the tape being stuck in the tape player.

xx:xx:xx

Oh Honey - S6-E15

Other mistake: Robin says she burned the dinner because she mistook the temperature scale on the oven for Celsius. However a given temperature above -40 is always higher in Fahrenheit, so by assuming the oven to be labeled in Celsius she would have undercooked the food. For example: If the directions were to cook at 400°F, she would set it around 200°F (thinking the oven was Celsius.) If the instructions were to cook at 200°C, she would still set the oven to 200°F, undercooking the food in both cases.

Sandcastles in the Sand - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: When Lily goes to the bar with her friend Michelle, Barney says "I want her around all the time."
