Romeward Bound - S8-E21

Corrected entry: 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.

Correction: Neil Patrick Harris is absolutely doing this intentionally, to enhance the point that Barney is not paying any attention to the menu. Ted and Barney are preoccupied with trying to get Liddy to take her coat off so they can see her "redonkulous" body, as Ted put it. Barney is not paying attention to the menu. This falls right in line with how Barney always acts in similar situations. Furthermore, if you look closely, Robin's hand pointing out to him that he's holding the menu sideways, but he's too focused on Liddy to notice this.

Farhampton - S8-E1

Corrected entry: When forced to explain himself to Quinn in 1 minute after finding out Barney and Robin used to date, Barney incorrectly states that Robin moved to Brazil and came back with "a Latin stud" after Ted and Robin broke up. Robin actually vacationed in Argentina. (00:11:35 - 00:12:40)

Correction: Barney's knowledge of geography is awful, as we've seen throughout the show. So, this could easily be in the script on purpose.

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)
