When they show the Arcadia hotel being demolished they show the windows being blown out. When you demolish a building all windows are removed for just that reason to prevent any damage from flying glass.
When Ted calls Marshall on his phone, which ten years from now is supposed to show holograms of the caller, Marshall's hologram is shown with the same hairstyle he wears today, but in previous episodes showing flash forwards to ten years from now, like the college reunion in "How I Met Everyone Else," or when he opened Lily's death packet in "We're Not From Here," Marshall had a receding hairline to the point of baldness, just like Marvin, Sr.
When Lily was lying on the couch at the end of this episode, main entrance to her apartment was behind her head. When Marshall came in to the living room he came from the kitchen direction, without his jacket and with glass of wine and there was no possibility that Lily didn't see him before, but she was surprised to see him.
When solving the love story between Ted and Zoey, Marshal used Clue characters. Ted wore only purple throughout the episode as Professor Plum, Zoey wore only white as Mrs. White, Barney only wore green as Mr. Green, and Honey only wore red as Miss. Scarlet. The Captain was just Colonel Mustard.
At the beginning of the episode, when Robin has cooked dinner, it appears to be burnt. Robin says she thought the oven was Celsius, but Celsius readings are lower than Fahrenheit, so the food would have not been burnt.
Marshall's dad says the Kangs across the hall lent him an umbrella. Kourtney Kang is one of the executive producers of the show.
This episode featured a subtle countdown from 50 to 1, with numbers appearing on random objects, or sometimes even spoken.
Marshall told Robin that they never hang out together and today's dinner is the first time when there is just two of them. This is not true, because in "Little Minnesota" Marshall took Robin to his favourite pub with a Minnesota theme and then to Hoser Hut, a Canadian bar.
When Lily tells Ted about the skateboarding dog, we see the event in flashback with Robin, Barney, and Marshall on the left and Lily and Zoey on the right by the bar. But when Marshal tells Ted he changed the course of Blitzstory, we see the same flashback, but this time The Blitz is suddenly there and is the most prominent person in view.
When Barney asks is the video of Robin Sparkles is a porn movie, he moves as if to slap Marshall, and Marshall flinches. This is fallout from the original "slap bet" in which Barney bet that Robin's big secret was an appearance in a porn film. If this had been a porn film, Barney would have earned the right to slap Marshall (possibly more than once, given the "Slapsgivings" that had occurred since the original bet).
When Ted is talking to Zoey after he met her husband she told him 'You wanna make this personal? Okay.' but when she is saying the 'okay' part her lips don't move.
When Barney pours champagne in the bar, the flutes go from being overflowing in one shot to half full the next.
During the scene when Randy announces his plans to brew beer and then Marshall comes into MacLaren's and tells him he's not fired, the blood stream from Randy's nose switches nostrils from right to left to right.
When Lily starts listing her perfect baby names, her first choice is Tara, which is a reference to another role played by Alyson Hannigan, Buffy the Vampire Slayer's Willow, who was in a relationship with a character named Tara.
In the beginning of the episode, when the group is arguing over which form of transportation is faster, Barney repeats the phrase "carrots and peas," typical verbal filler for background actors.
Just after Maury Povich steals the cab from Robin, he is seen sitting beside Lily in the subway. He is also later seen sitting at the stairs when Marshall came passing by. How can he be all over the places at one time?
At the bar, Ted points out the route on his laptop. When they all jump up and start racing each other Ted takes the laptop with him. As soon as they leave the bar the laptop is gone and we don't see it again this episode.
The guy that wears a calculator costume says, "Clear everything" as he points to the CE button. It actually stands for "Clear Entry". The "C" (sometimes "AC") stands for (All) Clear, which clears everything.
Closed Captions: At the end of the episode when Barney tells Loretta that she was his father, closed captioning has Older Ted (Bob Saget) saying "Kids, Barney would learn the truth about his dad sooner than he ever could have guessed. But as he hugged Loretta on this, the last day he'd ever set foot in his boyhood home, he realized he had one hell of a mom." The first sentence is removed, and the second sentence is cut up and inserted not in its entirety.
