  • Trivia

    • On this episode, Marshall's brother Marcus is seen married and dad of two school-aged kids, that he abandoned to work at a Tiki Bar. Less than a year ago, on Season 7's episode "Tailgate", Marshall clearly states that his brother was unemployed and living with his mom. However, Marshall has two brothers, so he could be referring to his other brother, not Marcus.

    • After almost getting hit by a car, Lily starts overreacting and says: "Death is all around us". The same type of reaction is seen on Marshall, when his health insurance ran out on Season 7's episode: "Disaster Adverted".

    • At the end of the episode, Marshall and Lily made Ted, Robin, and Barney godparents. Except a child is only supposed to have two godparents.
