How I Met Your Mother

CBS (ended 2014)




  • Season 2 Episode 22: Something Blue

  • Robin doesn't like kids, and that even was the reason she and Ted broke up. Yet she walks off to dance with the little boy at the end of the episode.

  • When the proposal takes place, the bride-to-be has her left hand over her mouth the whole time, therefore the groom-to-be must have placed the ring on her right finger.

  • The proposal in the restaurant was authentic. Tim Russo asked one of the writer's assistants if he could visit and propose to Jana Rugan on the HIMYM set, who then asked Carter Bays and Craig Thomas. They accepted.

    To keep Jana unaware, the first few takes had a different person announcing it was his ring; after a code phrase, Tim stood up and announced it was his, and then proposed to Jana. Jana's acceptance had to be dubbed in post-production due to her being overcome with emotion at being asked.

  • In Single Stamina, Ted and Robin are shown dancing together, despite the fact that the scene takes place after this episode (as indicated by Marshall referring to Lily as his wife) and therefore are broken up.

    The scene from Single Stamina was written to be vague enough that they could either be together (as judged from the dancing) or broken up (as the point behind the episode is that couples don't stay out late, and Ted and Robin stayed out post-Marshall and Lily).

  • Season 2 Episode 21: Something Borrowed

  • In the beginning of this episode we see the gang talking about Marshall and Lily's wedding eight months ago. Then they were actually broken up, getting back together in November in the episode "Swarley" and getting married in May. That's only a total of six months.

  • When Marshall and Lily are contemplating where to have sex for the first time as a married couple (the reception hall bathroom), it is once again a place where Ted is present. This is similar to the episode "First Time in New York," in which there is a recap to Ted being awake for Marshall and Lily losing their virginity.

  • Ted: (to Barney) Unless you actually have one in your car, stop suggesting Native American headdress.

    In season 2's "Arrivederci, Fiero," Barney does not have a license let alone a car since he has taken subways and taxis his whole life.

  • Season 2 Episode 20: Showdown

  • Goof: After Lily and Marshall decide to spend the last two weeks before their wedding apart he gets up to go get a beer but a couple of frames before he took a drink from his beer and you can see that the bottle is almost full.

  • When Barney hits 100 on the Big Wheel, he wins $1,000 and a Bonus Spin (as per the rules), however the bonus spin is not depicted in the episode.

  • Marshall says that his mother wouldn't like him eating junk food; however, in "Belly Full of Turkey" Marshall's mom gives Lily a recipe for a salad that contains, among other things, gummy bears, Funyuns, and potato chips.

  • Season 2 Episode 19: Bachelor Party

  • Goof: In this episode, there's a flashback of Barney flying to San Francisco to convince Lily to get back together with Marshall, remarking that he can't keep stealing Marshall's dates forever. However, at the time Barney was stealing Marshall's dates ("The Scorpion and the Toad"), Lily was back in NYC already.

  • When Robin tries to "communicate" with Lily by attempting to read each others' minds, we see this effort fail completely. However, this isn't the first episode in which such an attempt is made. In the first-season episode Mary the Paralegal, we see the "famous telepathic conversations" between Lily and Marshall, as well as Marshall and Ted.

  • When Barney is in San Francisco asking Lily to go back home he mentions he can't keep stealing girls from Marshall forever. This ties to a previous episode, "The Scorpion and the Toad", in which Barney supposedly teaches Marshall how to hit on women but ends up stealing all candidates from him. Now we know Barney was doing that on purpose to keep Marshall from going on without Lily.

  • Season 2 Episode 18: Moving Day

  • While Barney is in the back of the van with the girl and Ted begins driving, Barney tumbles to the floor as the van apparently drives over a pothole, but the glass of alcohol on the table doesn't slosh or tip over.

  • Season 2 Episode 17: Arrivederci, Fiero

  • When Ted was teaching Barney how to drive the car they were in some parking lot and we could see some grass and bush far away from them, but when Barney was trying to avoid the dog he drove right into some bush and we clearly saw that before he turned the wheel just a little bit so he couldn't reach the bush so quickly.

  • Before finding out about Lily and Robin's accident during the Thai food take out excursion, Marshall mentions that a "homeless guy threw up in the back seat." The Fiero was a 2-seat sports car and did not have a back seat.

  • Even though the Fiero is featured prominently in first-season episodes "Sweet Taste of Liberty" and "Milk", the song "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)" cannot be heard in these episodes.

  • In season one's "Milk", when Ted was left by the side of the road, he first calls Barney to "pick him up," indicating Barney had a car and was able to drive in season one.

    Edit: The story was prefaced with the fact that it happened "last year" Since this is season 2, it is possible that he learned to drive during season 1 well enough to have his own car and drive to get Ted during season 1.

  • In the flashback sequences, Marshall's Fiero still has a 2007 New York state registration sticker.

  • Season 2 Episode 16: Stuff

  • Marshall: Ok, so you have to have sex with one: either classic mermaid, bottom half fish, top half human, or inverted mermaid, top half fish, bottom half human, go!

    Last season when Marshall was interning at Barney's company, he was put off by the other lawyers who kept forcing him to chose which of two women to sleep with, ended by the phrase "go!" Clearly, Marshall picked up the habit.
