How I Met Your Mother

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.

Something Old - S8-E23

Factual error: When Ted recalls his trip to Spain the map onscreen is full of spelling and geographical errors: Marida appears in Portugal but it's in Spain and spelled Mérida. Valencenia = Valencia; Tarrogona = Tarragona; Grenada = Granada; Pamplona is placed where the city of Bilbao is; also Sevilla is placed 140 kilometers to the left of where it really is.

Revealing mistake: When Ted uses his laptop to get directions to the restaurant, Bing shows Los Angeles as their current location, instead of NY. (00:02:15)

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.

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.
