Suggested correction: Depending on the location settings on his laptop, they could be giving a false reading. My laptop shows I'm in Cardiff Wales while in fact I'm nowhere near.

The show was actually filmed on a film set in Los Angeles which is probably why the laptop says Los Angeles as the current location. This most probably slipped past the editing crew.

Oh Honey - S6-E15

Other mistake: Robin says she burned the dinner because she mistook the temperature scale on the oven for Celsius. However a given temperature above -40 is always higher in Fahrenheit, so by assuming the oven to be labeled in Celsius she would have undercooked the food. For example: If the directions were to cook at 400°F, she would set it around 200°F (thinking the oven was Celsius.) If the instructions were to cook at 200°C, she would still set the oven to 200°F, undercooking the food in both cases.

The Mermaid Theory - S6-E11

Character mistake: In another episode it is revealed that Robin hates nicknames and reacts badly when she, or anyone else, is given a nickname. However, in this episode her and Marshall give each other nicknames, and she doesn't seem bothered at all.

Suggested correction: They were trying to convince the others that they were close friends and Marshall probably didn't realise she hated nicknames and Robin was just going along with it.

She says "Teddy boy" often in s2 though.
