How I Met Your Mother

Something Old - S8-E23

Revealing mistake: When Lily brings out the "leaking" beanbag, you can see that she has the little white pellets in her clenched fist and is dropping them periodically, making it seem as if they're coming from the bag.

Farhampton - S8-E1

Character mistake: When Barney is telling his story to Quinn in a minute he says, "Ted and I stopped being friends, Ted got hit by a bus, we made up." Barney got hit by a bus, Ted got hit by another car. (00:12:10)

The Fortress - S8-E19

Factual error: The way Barney employs the green screen wouldn't work because a camera is needed to put a picture over the screen. To the naked eye the screen would still be green. The only plausible way to make the illusion work as intended would be a regular white screen and a projector, but this isn't the case here.

The Time Travelers - S8-E20

Continuity mistake: In 5-22 "Robots vs Wrestlers" future Ted narrates, " No matter if we fell out of the group, we always made it to Robots vs Wrestlers. Hell or high water." In this episode, Ted is the only one who goes.

The Time Travelers - S8-E20

Continuity mistake: Marshall tells Lily that he has never been to the ladies' room of the bar. However in the second season episode "Showdown", Robin catches Lily and Marshall "holding hands" in there. And in "Of Course" in season 5 Marshall, Ted, and Lily go in the ladies' room to comfort Robin.

Something New - S8-E24

Continuity mistake: We find out in this episode that Ted and the mother don't get married for several years, due to postponing the wedding when she became pregnant. They eventually get married in 2020, when their children are 3 and 5. But in Lobster Crawl (8-9), at the end of the episode Lily and Marshal show up to babysit Ted's daughter when she's younger than that, and Ted is wearing a wedding ring. (00:29:00)

Romeward Bound - S8-E21

Revealing mistake: When Ted, Barney and Robin are sitting at the bar with Liddy (the wedding planner) she hands them a catering menu. Barney's is sideways yet you see him use his finger to "pretend" read it and scroll through it.

The Bro Mitzvah - S8-E22

Other mistake: When Ralph Macchio mocks Barney for not gambling in AC, Barney makes a U-turn to head back, but turns the wheel to the right instead of the left. (00:12:00)

Dylan McLaughlin

Weekend at Barney's - S8-E18

Other mistake: There is absolutely no reason for Ted to hang around underneath his apartment window while Jeanette is throwing stuff out of it. Any sane person would know that there is a very high chance of getting struck by the myriad of Ted's belongings that are wantonly chucked out onto the street. He's not trying to collect/catch anything because he is turned away from the building, and is not paying attention to the items that are being thrown out.
