* RetroactiveRecognition: Grown up fans who've watched ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' in their youth will probably be surprised when [[Series/PowerRangersTimeForce Jen]] turns up as Ted's sister, Heather.

Added DiffLines:

* ValuesDissonance:
** A lot of the gang's jokes about transgender women come off pretty bigoted in 2017.
** Ted chasing after Robin despite her rejecting him time and time again is supposed to show him as a DoggedNiceGuy, but due to the arc/show's longevity and changing cultural attitudes about [[EntitledToHaveYou men who somehow deserve a woman's affection because they're "nice"]], he comes off jerkishly.

** Transwomen, seeing as the old "women who used to be men/have penises are gross" joke comes up several times.

** In ''Sorry, Bro'' when Lily finds out Ted is getting back together (''again'') with the pretentious, cheating beeyotch he dated in college: "Ted, honey, go outside and [[CurbStompBattle bite the curb]], I'll be out in a minute..." Hahaha, oh, Lily--[[AmericanHistoryX wait…]]

** In "The Wedding," Claudia is treated as a crazy Bridezilla because she won't let Ted bring a date to her wedding- when he asks her if he can ''two days before the wedding.'' Anyone who has ever planned a big wedding could tell you how much work adding an additional guest that close to the wedding would be, and Claudia was obviously already incredibly stressed before Ted asked her to squeeze someone in for him last-minute. [[Spoiler: And then after all that she doesn't even come to the wedding.]]

Added DiffLines:

** In "Slutty Pumpkin," Robin is first criticized by Lily and then dumped by Mike, the guy she's been seeing for a few weeks, because she's not 'acting like someone in a relationship.' However, Mike's basis for this claim is obviously from comparing his and Robin's relationship dynamic to Lily and Marshall's - an ''engaged'' couple whose relationship is at least ''150 times older'' than his!! Talk about unrealistic expectations...

** In season 3, Ted spends two and a half months pursuing Stella, a woman who initially turns him down because she's too busy working and taking care of her daughter to date anyone or even have a social life. When she later holds up five fingers to indicate how long it's been since she last had sex, he assumes that, similarly to him, she hasn't had sex in five months (rather than the actual time period of five years). Even though Ted is well-established as a single man actively pursuing sex and relationships, which Stella clearly isn't.

* WhatAnIdiot: Yeah, Ted, believe the woman who already lied to you multiple times. The sad part is that this is describing multiple people Ted has dealt with. His future self even calls himself this several times.

* LikeYouWouldReallyDoIt: Lampshaded in The Autumn of Breakups, where Narrator!Ted suggests one of four couples--including Lily and Marshall--will break up overnight. After a moment of dramatic music, he admits it wasn't Lily and Marshall.
