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.

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: I think she wants to show how upset she already is, like a "don't mess with me" warning.

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).

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.


Subway Wars - S6-E4

Revealing mistake: When Ted uses his laptop to get directions to the restaurant, Bing shows Los Angeles (where it's filmed) as their current location, instead of NY where the show is set. (00:02:15)

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

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.

The show was actually filmed on a film set in Los Angeles which is probably why the laptop says Los Angeles as the current location. This most probably slipped past the editing crew.
