Continuity mistake: In this episode we learn that Barney doesn't know how to drive. But throughout the whole series there are reference that he actually does, such as: In 'Come On' (22nd episode 1st season) : Penelope says to Barney: "We had sex twice in your car." In 'Moving Day' (18th episode 2nd season) : Barney drives away with Ted's rental van. In 'The Bracket' (14th episode 3rd season) : Barney stole Holly's SUV as they were camping.IDFS33140
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.

Continuity mistake: At the airport, Lily and Robin are talking off to the side away from others. During the scene, the cameras shoot from in front of the two actors and from behind Lily. From the frontal view, Lily's two headbands are white and gold-jeweled. The white headband is closest to her forehead. When the camera shot switches from front to behind, the headbands are switched on her head. The gold one is now closest to her forehead and the white one is behind.Paria.
Continuity mistake: When Ted is giving up with Marshall's best man speech he is holding a pen in his hand as well as a beer bottle. In the next shot the pen disappears and he is just holding a beer bottle. In the next shot the beer is on the coffee table and Ted drops the pen onto the coffee table.amy.callaghan2
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.pinkwafer
