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.
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.
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.
We see Marshall take the container of popcorn out of the kitchen into the living room, but when Ted and Robin are fighting about the water, you can see the popcorn on top of the refrigerator, but later Lily takes the popcorn off the table and starts to eat it.
Robin claims Mount Waddington (13,186 ft/4,019 m) is tallest mountain in Canada, but it's actually just the tallest in British Columbia. The tallest in Canada is actually Mount Logan (19,551 ft/5,959 m), while Mount Waddington ranks 17th.
As Ted, Marshall and Barney are sitting watching the DVD and the girls come in, we see the TV they are viewing from behind, and it only has one cable connected to it. Even the most modern TV's need at least two (power cable and A/V feed from the DVD player) in order to watch a DVD.
In this episode, when Marshall leaves McLaren's to step outside to call Jefferson Coatsworth and tell him he is turning down the job, in the background you can see the Royal Diner, used frequently in the television show Bones.
The location where Ted and his lady-friend met is Wild Shore near Booty Bay, located in the south of the Eastern Kingdoms.
They both play Alliance because Ted is a female Human (unknown) and Blabla is a Draenei Paladin. Skills from left to right are: Devotion Aura, Retribution Aura, Concentration Aura, unknown, unknown, Resistance Aura and Crusader Aura.
The Ted/Barney flashback fleshes out the brief flashback seen in the pilot episode.
The costumes worn in this version are similar, but not quite the same as in the original flashback.
Doug, who is a student in Lily's class, was the same kid who blackmailed Marshall in "Monday Night Football". However, because he was in kindergarten last season, he should be in the 1st grade in this episode and, therefore, not in Lily's class again.
In "The Pineapple Incident" Ted said he left Trudy a message, and she never called him back. However, in this episode Ted says he wishes he had called her.
The "Belt" is a replica of the WWF Championship belt from the Attitude Era.
The framed newspaper article in Marshall's office in the year 2029 reads: "N.Y.C lawyer captures 'Nessy'." The Nessy reference is a nod to Marshall's belief in the Loch Ness monster.
This episode was previously titled "New Jersey".
When Ted goes to Robin's apartment to "yell irrationally," Robin points out that Ted shaved, and she actually seems surprised about it, however in the scene where she asks Ted if he was okay with her being with Gael, Ted had already shaved.
In the scene where Ted and Barney are in the hot tub, after Barney drinks from the bottle, the lid reappears as he hands it to Amy.
