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.
On Barney's map of the world there is no check over Argentina meaning he has never had sex with a girl from there, however during "Something Blue" he says he hooked up with an Argentinian exchange student.
Goof : While Ted was at the bar with Royce on a double date , Royce mentioned that part of the movie when Jed Mosley got hit by a goat although that happened to Ted after he broke up with Stella .
In this episode Robin complains about Marshall being "too nice" because he helped some people rob an apartment, mistakenly thinking he was helping them move. However, in "Murtaugh" she herself did the same thing with Barney.
When Don and Robin leave to do their morning show, a drunk Ted and Barney fall asleep on Don's couch. However when Robin comes back, they are waking up in the twin beds.
In this episode, it is stated that Marshall can never take a good picture. However, in the opening sequence, Marshall is in several pictures, all of them decent. In contrast, it is stated that Barney can never take a bad picture. In the opening credits, however, we can see that he doesn't look perfect in all pictures.
When the gang sees Barney in the stadium at the Super Bowl, holding a placard with a phone number on it, it's the same shot as used in the ad for the show during the previous's night's airing of the Super Bowl. However, the number displayed during the Super Bowl ad (1-877-987-6401, which played a recording from Barney) was replaced in the episode with a non-functioning number (1-917-555-0197).
Although Ranjeet says in the first season that he is Bangladeshi, the foreign language he speaks in this episode is not Bengali.
