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.

Desperation Day - S6-E16

Other mistake: When Marshall returns from Minnesota, he approaches Lily lying on the couch from the kitchen area rather than from the door, and Lily still acts surprised to see him, even when he was obviously already in the apartment with her.

Oh Honey - S6-E15

Other mistake: Robin says she burned the dinner because she mistook the temperature scale on the oven for Celsius. However a given temperature above -40 is always higher in Fahrenheit, so by assuming the oven to be labeled in Celsius she would have undercooked the food. For example: If the directions were to cook at 400°F, she would set it around 200°F (thinking the oven was Celsius.) If the instructions were to cook at 200°C, she would still set the oven to 200°F, undercooking the food in both cases.

The Mermaid Theory - S6-E11

Other mistake: When Marshall brings the large photo of The Captain into the apartment, he claims he took the photo the last time that The Captain picked up Zoey, but the background of the photo is not the inside of a vehicle.

Dylan McLaughlin

Marshall: You should definitely go. Look, it's a chance to show her you are still friends and that you support her.
Barney: Or it's a chance to mess with her head by showing up with someone hotter, or even better, triple threat, hotter and bigger boobs!
Ted: That's only two.
Barney: Count again.
