The dating profile Barney set up to test Ted reads:
I'm just a girl with a master's degree in nerdy stuff like poetry or something searching for the one. I'm old-fashioned about romance but by no mean a prude. In face I was a competitive gymnast so I can bend like spaghetti in the sack, which probably doesn't matter to you,but it really should, Ted. I share my Soho loft and all my secrets with my dog Pablo (named after my favourite poet: the great Neruda!) I love pre-war architecture. Well I love all architecture! Though not anything by Sven! Barf,right?! There's nothing hotter than a guy who's down with crosswords. Get it...down? Oh and I love puns.
Love In The Time Of Cholera (Spanish version,claro!) and anything by Pablo Neruda
Nothing beats Ghostbusters but a close second would be Die Hard... or A Moeda Collector... or really anything from the guy who played Argyle in Die Hard's catalog
Doing the New York Times crossword, cooking,pun and games (wink!), oh and I love to travel. I just spend a weekend in Cleveland at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and I didn't hate it!
WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR:
The one! Just a down-to-earth guy who knows a bunch of stupid facts about turn of the century coinage and junk like that. I don't mind if he has baggage, like if he was once left at the alter or beaten up by a goat. Also, I'm a sucker for an out-of-date plaid shirt. At the end of the day all I really want is a guy to correct me on things like grammar and punctuation and where the apostrophe's go. Because that's really hot,Ted.
On the last scene of this episode Marshall is seen smoking a cigarette, as Lily is in labor. In Season's 5 "Last Cigarette Ever" there is a reference which states that Marshall's real last cigarette ever was the day his son was born.
The shot of Robin as a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman was a shot of a real episode when Cobie Smulders was a guest.

Ted and Barney call their baby Hurricane. In "Disaster Averted," Ted mentions to Marshall how cool the name Hurricane would be for his and Lily's child.
We can see Nora's parents in the episode 'Change of Heart' in season 6 and clearly they use different people to play their role in this episode.
Barney tells Ted his training is complete when he picks the hot girl over him. However this is a violation of his Bro Code: Article #1 - Bros before Hos. Historically, Ted has always upheld the Bro Code, but this action is in violation of it.
When Barney and Nora go onto the balcony, it is showed that the wall not exposed to the camera in Barney's apartment has a shelving unit. However, in several previous episodes, Barney's entire wall is a television screen.
In the episode 'Twin Beds' (season 5) we learned that Lilly doesn't let Marshall eat on the bed. However in this episode, it shows that Lilly herself enjoys a midnight snack on the bed.
Marshall leaving the bar at the end with Lily marks the first time a character has exited the booth towards the camera. In previous episodes, different camera angles have shown that the booth is actually against a wall, which is why the characters have always exited away from the camera.
When Ted gets up to go to the restroom, there are two glasses on the table. When he comes back, there is only one.
Trivia: The background music at Marshall's office during the party is actually a bunch of Ewoks singing "yub yub" to the same tune of the celebration song at the end of Return of the Jedi.
When Marshall finds his "You can call me Beercules" video on the Internet, the subsequent video made following his later visit to his old friend Peter is already shown in "Other Views".
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.
