The Lighthouse - S9-E8

Corrected entry: Once Lily finds out Marshall has accepted the judgeship, she is brought a drink and reveals to the group, "yes this has booze in it, no it's not my first." However, later in the season we find out Lily was drinking non alcoholic drinks the entire time because she believed she was pregnant. (00:01:50)


Correction: Or she just lied to keep people from assuming she's pregnant? Pretty sure this isn't a mistake and that it's just a lie Lily told the group.

There was no reason for her to lie though. No one asked her what she was drinking and she just randomly walked up to the group and said she was drinking alcohol.


I agree with the corrector; Lily lied to her friends. She is hanging out with her very best friends that she sees everyday, knows her drinking habits and she is not ready to share news of her possible pregnancy (esp. Before telling Marshall). On top of it, they would be really suspicious if she had a non-alcoholic beverage and she was free as a bird since Marvin was with Marshall. As a person that tried to hide a pregnancy in social settings, I made it known that my coke was a rum and coke (even if no-one asked).

The Rehearsal Dinner - S9-E12

Corrected entry: When Ted meets Victoria in season 1, he plays the piano for her (well) while she tap dances. In this episode it explains that that Ted was taking piano lessons to do a performance at the rehearsal dinner and he is terrible.

Correction: Ted was covering the fact that he was taking ice skating lessons.

It's also not uncommon for people who can play an instrument to take lessons.

Gary Blauman - S9-E21

Corrected entry: In S3E15 "The Chain of Screaming" Barney is talking about Gary Blauman confronting his boss, and when Marshall asks, "Is that the end of the story?" Barney replies, "No, no of course not. He died." But in s9e21 the entire episode is about Gary Blauman.

Nathan Ehrnsberger

Correction: Obviously Barney was lying.

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)

Something Blue - S2-E22

Trivia: When Ted and Robin are at the restaurant, they are accidentally sent a champagne glass with an engagement ring in. A man then claims the ring and proposes to his girlfriend. This couple really did get engaged on the show - the guy set up the surprise proposal, as his girlfriend thought they were just there as extras.
