How I Met Your Mother

CBS (ended 2014)




  • Season 3 Episode 14: The Bracket

  • Future Ted says that the website went on to get 400,000 hits. However when the site is shown onscreen, the visit counter says it has already received 510,005 hits.

  • At one point in the episode, Barney asks why some woman that he's slept with and screwed over is trying to ruin his life. Lily states that it is karma but Barney dismisses this by saying it can't be Karma because she's stripping and Vegas and that they're on friendly terms with each other. At the end of season 7 episode 16, it is revealed that Quin (who is to become Barney's future fiance) is a stripper who is also named Karma at the strip club that he frequents. Coincidence? I think not...

  • One of the women shown in the middle of Barney's flash of pictures of the girls he "lied to, seduced, and abandoned" is none other than Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State. When Lily is looking through Barney's scrapbook she says she recognizes " government official", and on the tournament board of the top 64 girls that Barney has slept with there is a "Madaline" in "The Village" who makes it into the final 32 as "Madeline", who Barney points to on the board as the woman who thought he was Jorge Posada and who Lily says bought Yankees season tickets to watch him play!

  • There's a picture of the first "Final Four" girl Meg in the scrapbook at the end of the episode, but Lily didn't start taking pictures until she and Barney found the second girl, Anna.

  • When Barney approaches Robin at the bar, his drink is clearly in his right hand. However it magically switches to his left, because just seconds later his right hand is the one on Robin's thigh.

  • Ted and Marshall's bracket listed the four regions out of order, the official bracket listed clockwise from the top left East, South, West, Midwest, but Ted and Marshall's reads West, East, South, Midwest listed clockwise from the top.

  • The bracket on the blackboard in Ted's apartment is not an accurate 2008 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament bracket.

  • In the flashback where Barney leaves Holly in the tent, it showed him driving away. However Barney himself said in a previous episode that he can't drive.

  • Season 3 Episode 13: Ten Sessions

  • When Ted walks into the reception area carrying The Power of Me, and in subsequent scenes talking about it, he is wearing a New Orleans Saints shirt. Britney Spears is from Louisiana.

  • Goof: In the bar scene between sessions 5 & 6, Ted says he has four more sessions left with Stella. In fact, Ted has 5 sessions left.

  • Season 3 Episode 12: No Tomorrow

  • Ted is supposed to be crazy drunk when arriving at the bar, but he comes straight from home where he's sober.

  • When Ted and Barney are deciding whether or not to ditch their St. Patrick's Day dates, Barney says "I don't see no ring on this finger." He holds up his right hand but traditionally wedding rings go on the left hand, so you wouldn't see a ring on that finger even if he were married.

  • Goof: This is no door where Marshall hanged the picture. It's little different from the episode "Dowisetrepla". It had a door right next to the main green door.

  • Season 3 Episode 11: The Platinum Rule

  • During a flashback scene from 2005, Barney uses his iPhone, which was not released until 2007.

  • When Lily and Marshall try to sneak out of the house and almost get caught by Laura and Michael (the new neighbors) they run back to the apartment just by opening the door without using any key, but when Ted shows up a few seconds later he is not able to open the door because he forgot his keys.

  • Season 3 Episode 9: Slapsgiving

  • Early in the episode we are told that the slap will occur at 3:01pm. However, as Marshall shows Barney the slap bet countdown in the final hour, the clock in the background clearly shows the time as 4:20.

  • In the flashback explanation of the slap bet, the clip they show for the first slap is not the official first of the five slaps but rather when Marshall prematurely slapped Barney after believing he was right in guessing Robin was married.

  • Marshall looks at the slap countdown, which shows 2:45:19 remaining, but then tells Barney they're in the final hour.

  • Determined from the countdown in the episode, that scene was filmed on October 19th, 2007 at 2:40 PM.

  • Season 3 Episode 8: Spoiler Alert

  • The opening of the episode shows Ted and Kathy watching TV, Ted feeding Kathy, and Ted surprising her with a flower. This same set-up was used in the episode "Little Boys" with Ted and Stacy.
