    Trivia (3)

    • When Lily is approached by Abby, she "has no idea who she is." But before Ted started dating Stella Lily goes in her office for an appointment and thus must have met the receptionist Abby and should've recognized her.

    • When Lily is talking about how the dress Robin just bought had gotten her a "two-syllable 'damn'", she says it took place in 2004, yet she has dark hair. If that had really taken place in 2004, Lily would have still had her red hair.

    • At the beginning of this episode, when we flash back to when Lily was approached by Abby (when we didn't know who it was), the girl has straight hair. In the episode where that originally happened, the girl had wavy curls in her hair.

    Allusions (4)

    • Barney's monologue at the beginning of the episode has him as the Chief Brody character from Steven Spielberg's 1975 film, Jaws. He even refers to the Hooper character from the scene as "Mr. Holland", as both Hooper from Jaws and Holland (from Stephen Herek's 1995 film, Mr. Holland's Opus) were played by Richard Dreyfuss.

    • Robin: The good, the bad and the fabulous. This is a play of words as reference to a 1966 famous western The Good, The Bad and The Ugly starring Clint Eastwood, Lee Van Cleef.

    • Lilly: The magnificent Kevin. This is a play of words as reference to a 1960 famous western The Magnificent Seven

    • Marshall: No country for straight man. This is a play of words as reference to a 2007 film No Country for Old Men starring Tommy Lee Jones, Josh Brolin. The film is shot in a style of western but modern one.
