How I Met Your Mother

CBS (ended 2014)




  • Season 4 Episode 14: The Possimpible

  • According to Marshall's resume, he was also a finalist in the National Environmental Essay Competition in 1996, a Nicollet County Slam Dunk Champion in 1995, and Camper of the Year in 1990.

  • Along with "Program Director, 88.1 Wesleyan University Radio (WESU-FM)," "Summer Associate at Gradmore, Jellinek & Ross Parners, Boston, MA" and "Supervising Lifeguard at Poplar Hills Town House Condominiums, Columbus, OH" are also featured on Ted's resume.

  • Season 4 Episode 11: Little Minnesota

  • Vikings jerseys worn in the Minnesota-themed bar bear the last names of series star Cobie Smulders, episode writer Chuck Tatham, episode director Pamela Fryman, and series co-creator Carter Bays.

  • Season 4 Episode 10: The Fight

  • The scene that shows Thanksgiving in 3-5 years correctly leaves out Marshall's father, Marvin. As we now know, Marvin Eriksen dies in the Season 6 episode "Bad News", two years from this episode.

  • At the end of the episode we see a flash forward to "Thanksgiving three to five years from now" and it is Marshall's family and Lily, but in Slapsgiving Ted states that every year all the friends spend Thanksgiving at Marshall and Lily's (not his parents).

  • In this episode Marshall states, "I've been in plenty of fights," a point which is proven by the end of the episode. But in "Sweet Taste of Liberty", after he confronts a man about touching Lily he claims he's never been in a fight before.

  • Season 4 Episode 9: The Naked Man

  • At the end when Mitch is walking down the street, he has two shadows: one projected on the pavement and another projected onto the wall behind him.

  • When Lily is about to write down the "50 reasons to have sex," she takes her pen out of her purse, takes off the cap, then grabs her cocktail napkin. But two camera shots later, she is again taking off the pen cap.

  • When Ted is describing all the crazy stuff he had walked into at their old apartment, they show the goat with date May 8, 2009. However, from previous references to the goat, the first time Ted saw the goat was some days before Ted's 31st birthday which, as stated on "The Goat", is April 25th, 2009.

  • When Barney's date yells at him and throws him out, as she turns back towards the camera her lips are visibly not moving, even though her voice can be heard.

  • When Ted is explaining the weird things he has walked in on at the apartment, a scene is shown from dated from 2004 in which he walks in on Lily painting several gymnasts posing. If this had taken place in 2004 Lily would have still had red hair.

  • Season 4 Episode 6: Happily Ever After

  • When Robin is having her flashback, she is clearly dressed as a boy, but in "Memories", the last episode of the third season, when she has a flashback to tell her dog's miracle history, she must be the same age, and she is dressed with a very girlie style, and has long hair.

  • In "Slutty Pumpkin" Robin told Ted that she's never played any team sports. However, in this episode we can see she played ice hockey in a team via flashbacks.

  • Season 4 Episode 5: Shelter Island

  • When Barney is hatching his plan to get back Robin, one of the posters on his office wall changes. When he is seated at his desk, the poster to the right of the "TEAMWORK" poster shows multiple fighter jets and is entitled "PERFECTION". But when Barney is at the drawing board, the same poster changes to a single fighter jet and is now entitled "AWESOMENESS".

  • Season 4 Episode 4: Intervention

  • The last time that the wall that broke because of the encyclopedia was seen was during "Do I know you?", in this episode the wall doesn't show any damage (and there is no damage in any previous episode). This places the encyclopedia accident at some point between Ted's engagement with Stella and this episode. Later in the episode, there is a flashback to when Robin and Ted were dating, and you can clearly see the wall being already damaged.

  • When the encyclopedias and the shelf start to fall and crumble, you can actually see the brick wall push outward and shake.

  • When Ted scares the couple out of the booth the woman clearly takes her cell phone with her, only for it to reappear on the table when she asks for it.

  • At the beginning of Barney's magic trick intervention, the scorch mark is clearly seen underneath the intervention banner, before he burns it.

  • Season 4 Episode 3: I Heart NJ

  • When Ted goes to talk to Stella to apologize, he checks the living room. Sitting on the couch is a Magna Doodle that wasn't there in the previous scene. On it are the symbols for peace, love and happiness.

  • When at Stella's house in New Jersey, Stella sends Ted to the PriceCo., a members-only warehouse store, to purchase beer. However, in New Jersey, beer can only be purchased at locations that have a "liquor license" for the sale of package goods, such as a bar or liquor store. In New Jersey, Ted would not be able to purchase beer at a warehouse store or supermarket.
