Zip, Zip, Zip - S1-E14

Corrected entry: In S1E06 Lily dresses like a parrot and Marshal like a pirate. At 5 min 03 sec. Lily says that she needs to pee and Marshal goes with her because she wears an elaborate costume. Later in S1E14 Marshal and Lily are trapped in their bathroom because Ted and Victoria are trying to do it in the living room and they do not know that Lily and Marshal are at home. After a while being trapped Lily says that she wants to do something she's never done before, i.e. she wants to pee while Marshal is also in the bathroom.

Correction: Marshal may well have helped her out of the parrot costume, then left the bathroom while she used the toilet. He could then return to help her back into the costume.

Drumroll, Please - S1-E13

Corrected entry: When Ted is telling Lily and Marshall about him and Victoria stealing the bouquet, Lily says "Good for Victoria", even though they don't know her name yet. (00:05:30)

skye117

Correction: They do know her name. Ted is telling them how they were going to use nicknames when Barney came up to him and called him Ted, so she tells Ted her name is Victoria. This happened BEFORE the stealing the bouquet part.

Matchmaker - S1-E7

Corrected entry: When Ellen takes the clipboards, she first holds one in each hand, then the shot changes and both are in one hand.

pinkwafer

Correction: They stay in each hand, but her hands are on top of each other, giving the impression they are in the same hand.

Slutty Pumpkin - S1-E6

Corrected entry: In the scene where Robin and Ted are talking on the roof at the end of the episode, Robin asks Ted why, when Mike was willing to look like a complete idiot by dressing us as Hansel for her, she couldn't 'be Gretel' to be a good girlfriend. Ted replies, "Because you just haven't met the right Hansel yet". Hansel and Gretel were in fact brother and sister in the story.

benson

Correction: He meant that they just don't do well together. He wasn't implying that Hansel and Gretel had an incestuous relationship.

Life Among the Gorillas - S1-E17

Corrected entry: When Barney is talking to Marshall in the bar you can see Victoria behind Marshall's head, although she should have gone to Germany.

kc

Correction: After just watching the episode, Victoria is nowhere to be seen. There is a waitress that kind of looks like her, but you never see her whole face, and it's definitely not Victoria.

Sweet Taste of Liberty - S1-E3

Corrected entry: After learning that the guy who he thought was hitting on Lily is gay, Marshall says "I've never been in a fight". However, in Season 4, "The Fight", he states that he has been in plenty of fights with his brothers.

Correction: People have different Definitions of what actually constitutes a "fight." He could consider those times with his brothers just "messing around." And the one punch to Doug also wouldn't be considered a fight.

Game Night - S1-E15

Corrected entry: In episode 1 "The Pilot", when the gang are drinking champagne at the bar with Ranjit the cab driver, there is a tray on the table when they toast. In this episode the same scene is shown in flashback, and there is no tray. (00:16:00)

pinkwafer

Correction: The flashback shows the scene from the pilot. However, the events in the flashback take place after the credits have rolled in the pilot. Therefore it is reasonable to assume that the tray could have easily been removed in that time.

Pilot - S1-E1

Corrected entry: When Robin steps out of her front door to give Ted directions, she wraps her cardigan around herself. In the next shot the cardigan is instantly open, and she wraps it around herself again. (00:18:15)

pinkwafer

Correction: The cardigan is seen opening as Robin extends her arm to give Ted the direction.

Casual Person

Subway Wars - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Ted uses his laptop to get directions to the restaurant, Bing shows Los Angeles as their current location, instead of NY. (00:02:15)

Suggested correction: Depending on the location settings on his laptop, they could be giving a false reading. My laptop shows I'm in Cardiff Wales while in fact I'm nowhere near.

Something Blue - S2-E22

Trivia: When Ted and Robin are at the restaurant, they are accidentally sent a champagne glass with an engagement ring in. A man then claims the ring and proposes to his girlfriend. This couple really did get engaged on the show - the guy set up the surprise proposal, as his girlfriend thought they were just there as extras.

Lucky Penny - S2-E15

Question: I'm confused, what exactly was wrong with Barney's legs in this episode? Why couldn't he move them?

Answer: After running the marathon for Marshall with no training, he's allowed to ride the subway for free. While sat on the train, the muscles in his legs start to seize up after the marathon to the point it is painful to move his legs. This is why he can't move them. It's the same reason your body aches after a good session at the gym the day before.

Ssiscool Premium member

Answer: Barney ran a marathon without any training and over exerted his muscles. While he was able to walk after, later his leg muscles gave out and he couldn't move (or more likely stand). It is not uncommon when one works out too much to be sore the next day, even if they feel okay afterwards. Thus the saying "I'll feel that in the morning."
