How I Met Your Mother

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). (00:05:05)


Duel Citizenship - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: Ted says that Marshall and he only ate jerky and drank Tantrum on their road trips. In 2-17 "Arrivederci, Fiero" however it's established that Marshall had a rule forbidding any kind of food or drink, even groceries, in his Fiero. (00:01:15)

Suggested correction: Marshall came up with the rule because of Lily and Robin. Before they met, in the era when Ted and Marshall had road trips, they would've had food and drinks.

Nope, the no food or drinks rule is because his brothers made him get 12 hot cups of coffee without lids and drive with them naked, and he got burnt. That was when he got the car, before he met Ted.

The Playbook - S5-E8

Continuity mistake: In season 5 episode 8, Marshall and Ted are playing on an Xbox 360 Console. If you look carefully, you see that Ted's Xbox controller has no batteries in it, yet he is playing the game with Marshall, and then a few scenes change and so do the batteries. Scene 1, 12 minutes and 23 seconds: Marshall's remotes has a battery in while Ted's is out. Scene 2, 12m 40s: Marshall's Xbox control has no battery in. Scene 3, 12m 51s: Marshall's battery is back in the controller. Scene 4, 12m 58s: Marshall's battery is out again. Scene 5, 13m 44s:Marshall's battery is back in.


Say Cheese - S5-E18

Continuity mistake: Barney claims in this episode he never "takes a bad picture". But in earlier episode "The Sexless Innkeeper" there were plenty of bad pictures of Barney in Marshall's Best Night Ever Montage.


The Rough Patch - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: In the 7th episode of Season 5, the scenes when the "Storm-Trooper" (actually, a robot) passes by the window do not match. The first time we see it, from the outside, as soon as he passes, Robin notices him and points towards him, but the second time, from the inside, she doesn't point at him.


The Rough Patch - S5-E7

Continuity mistake: The scenes before Robin and Barney leave the diner vary depending on the angle. From outside we see that Robin fixes Barney's suit before they leave, but from the inside she doesn't.
