How I Met Your Mother

Everything Must Go - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: In Ted's flashback where Barney's mysterious saboteur is talking to Lily, the girl has straight blonde hair. In episode 14, "The Bracket" where his saboteur was first introduced and she originally spoke to Lily, she had curly blonde hair in the same sequence.

Miracles - S3-E20

Continuity mistake: When Ted gets in the taxi, the code on the taxi is 6Z28. Then, it changes to 9Z72 right before the accident. Then back to 6Z28 right before it gets hit. To top that, the cab Barney wants to take to the hospital is also code 9Z72.

The Yips - S3-E10

Slapsgiving - S3-E9

Continuity mistake: Marshall turns on the computer, and a readout pops up clearly displaying 2h 45m left on the countdown. He then says "look at that - that means we're in the final hour left of the countdown".

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. (00:15:10)

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." It then cuts from Barney to Lily's slightly shocked looking face, obviously from a previous cut/scene change, sitting at the table with them - she should still be walking to the bar with Michelle.

How I Met Everyone Else - S3-E5

Continuity mistake: During the flashback in which Barney recounts the story of how he and Ted met (which was previously shown in the pilot episode of the series), there is a green circular plaque (that reads "Winner of the Queen Cup") on the wall in the background which wasn't present in the pilot episode. Also, Barney's left arm is in different positions than it was in the pilot.

Everything Must Go - S3-E19

Continuity mistake: When Robin buys Lily's "favorite dress", Lily holds it on her lap folded, when the camera changes angles it is unfolded.

The Platinum Rule - S3-E11

Continuity mistake: Barney blocks Ted's path by standing in front of the door. Watch his position as he says, "Ted, don't do this" for the second time, he has his right arm over his head. When the camera changes angles he has it down.

The Chain Of Screaming - S3-E15

Wait For It... - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: When Ted, Barney and their dates are in the tub, Barney is holding a bottle. He takes a sip (i.e. no cap) and hands it to Amy (Ted's date). Now it has a cap. She hands it to Ted who unscrews it and has a drink.

No Tomorrow - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: At the Saint Patrick's Day party when Barney says, "it's not cheating if her name has two adjacent vowels" his right hand is up near his left hand, pointing to his fingers. When the camera angle changes his hand is back at his stomach.

We're Not From Here - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Ted, Barney and the girls are heading to the South Bronx in the cab, keep watching Colleen's head, near when Barney says, "Somebody's been watching too many Seinfeld reruns", her head moves instantly between shots, from looking towards Ted to looking at Barney.

No Tomorrow - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: Towards the end, when Ted says, "You just yelled at me", look at Marshall. He's about to take a sip of his drink, but when the camera cuts to a different angle, the mug's nowhere near his lips anymore.

Wait For It... - S3-E1

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Ted goes over to Robin's apartment to yell about their breakup, Robin says "You shaved" and "I liked the beard," implying that this is the first time she has seen Ted since he shaved. But the night before she was in the kitchen at his apartment asking if he was okay with her dating Gael. At that point Ted had already shaved. (00:17:45)
