How I Met Your Mother

How I Met Everyone Else - S3-E5

Other mistake: In the scene where Barney is describing The Vicky Mendoza Diagonal of The Hot-Crazy Scale, his words describe her getting hotter, (i.e. lost ten pounds) not less crazy. On the diagram shown, she goes down in craziness, not up in hotness.

Wait For It... - S3-E1

Other mistake: In the flashback where Gael is playing a guitar and singing a song, the chords on the guitar change, but his fingers do not move at all. He is playing the same chord the whole time.

Spoiler Alert - S3-E8

Other mistake: When Barney shows Marshall the video of a dog pooping on a baby, he puts in the CD upside down.

Suggested correction: Lots of blank CDs that you can buy do not have labels on the top and therefore are just shiny on top (like they are on the bottom).

Not true. He points the writing at the camera and puts it writing side down.

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).

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.
