Romeward Bound - S8-E21

Revealing mistake: When Ted, Barney and Robin are sitting at the bar with Liddy (the wedding planner) she hands them a catering menu. Barney's is sideways yet you see him use his finger to "pretend" read it and scroll through it.

Suggested correction: Neil Patrick Harris is absolutely doing this intentionally, to enhance the point that Barney is not paying any attention to the menu. Ted and Barney are preoccupied with trying to get Liddy to take her coat off so they can see her "redonkulous" body, as Ted put it. Barney is not paying attention to the menu. This falls right in line with how Barney always acts in similar situations. Furthermore, if you look closely, Robin's hand pointing out to him that he's holding the menu sideways, but he's too focused on Liddy to notice this.

The Bro Mitzvah - S8-E22

Other mistake: When Ralph Macchio mocks Barney for not gambling in AC, Barney makes a U-turn to head back, but turns the wheel to the right instead of the left. (00:12:00)

Suggested correction: Barney does indeed start going back, but he doesn't make a U-turn. They are on a highway where a U-turn is impossible, and he is pulling to the right to get off at the next exit.

Something New - S8-E24

Continuity mistake: We find out in this episode that Ted and the mother don't get married for several years, due to postponing the wedding when she became pregnant. They eventually get married in 2020, when their children are 3 and 5. But in Lobster Crawl (8-9), at the end of the episode Lily and Marshal show up to babysit Ted's daughter when she's younger than that, and Ted is wearing a wedding ring. (00:29:00)

Suggested correction: Many couples wear rings before their actual wedding as a display of commitment. A friend of mine is in this situation. He wears a ring, has a child with his lady, but no actual date for their wedding is set. This is simply Ted choosing to wear a ring before getting married and there is no mistake.

Robin 101 - S5-E3

Plot hole: When Robin and Lily find Barney's secret Robin notebook, Barney and Ted are at the class, so Barney should have the notebook with him.

Suggested correction: This is a character mistake at best, and quite a common one. Students constantly forget their textbooks, homework, notes, supplies etc.

It should be noted that the plot hole isn't talking about "students." This isn't about forgetting textbooks, supplies, or homework. Barney is trying to be a better boyfriend to Robin and wants to learn Ted's secrets since Ted had dated Robin. If Barney has been writing everything down before, the mistake is pointing out why isn't he writing it down this time, except to allow the writers to have Lily and Robin find the notebook and the class.
