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)

Suggested correction: Many couples wear rings before their actual wedding as a display of commitment. A friend of mine is in this situation. He wears a ring, has a child with his lady, but no actual date for their wedding is set. This is simply Ted choosing to wear a ring before getting married and there is no mistake.

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).
