*** As suggested InUniverse, did she came back from San Francisco because she realized she made a mistake or did she just settle for Marshall after failing to make it as an artist?

*** The show's habit of mocking New Jersey as well, since Cristin Millioti is from there.

** Barney put some hidden cameras around his apartment for "other purposes" which Robin finds it creepy. Then, came in ''Film/GoneGirl'' where NPH's character also had cameras installed in his house for security purposes which can be as counted creepy when he brought in Amy (played by Creator/RosemundPike) who pretended that she ran away from her husband (played by Creator/BenAffleck). She used this to tarnish him as a stalker ex-boyfriend [[spoiler:by pretending that she's abused by him on-camera and later killing him "in self-defense" while having sex before going back to her husband in the film's climax]].

** Fun fact, The building used in the stock footage is actually not even a school at all but the offices of La Direction De La Santé Publique De Montréal-Centre, a public health agency in Montreal, Quebec.

** Creator/BobOdenkirk's role in Season 3 as a feared senior partner of a law firm becomes this when you [[Series/BreakingBad consider the character]] [[Series/BetterCallSaul he's most known for.]]
*** Especially when in ''Better Call Saull'', when Saul Goodman/Jimmy McGill is the one who often clashes with one of the senior partners of HMM, [[spoiler: his brother, Chuck McGill]].

** In "Knight Vision", the strict minister dies suddenly after Robin and Barney reveal how they really met and how promiscuous and sinful they are. The actor playing the reverend, [[GilmoreGirls Edward Herrmann]], would die a little more than a year later.

** When the Website/{{Facebook}} page of the show put a picture of [[spoiler:Cristin Milioti as the Mother, showing clearly her face and making it very clear who the character was]], right after the Season 8 finale, a lot of people who hadn't watched the episode yet called CBS on the blatant spoiler, especially the audience from outside the US. Understandably, they weren't happy.

(It should be noted that, aside from {{Netflix}}, social media pages for American TV shows are ALWAYS only ever aimed at American audiences, and don't care about delayed airings overseas.)

* FetishRetardant: Post break-up with Don Robin. As Barney puts it "you're giving me a de-rection". It should not be ''possible'' to uglify Cobie Smulders that much.

*** On the other hand, the single biggest obstacle to them being together has always been portrayed as them wanting different things out of life: Ted wanting to settle down and have kids, Robin not liking kids and wanting an international news career. At the beginning of the series, being with each other would be a major obstacle to one or the other getting what they want, but by the time of the finale, that's not true anymore. Let's start with Ted: At this point, marrying Robin won't stand in the way of him being a dad and raising a family, because he's already done that. Then Robin: First, a typical career path for a person who's very successful in her field -- take, for example, the also-Canadian Peter Jennings -- often involves spending the early part of your career bouncing around the world to different assignments, before eventually landing a stable gig that still involves traveling from time to time, but is probably based in New York or Washington. Second, Ted's kids are teenagers. As much as they like her, they don't need her to be their mom, and they're old enough to be pretty self-sufficient. She didn't have to burp them, change their diapers, shuttle them to soccer practice, or vacuum Cheerios out of her back seat; she gets the benefits of ''having had'' kids without any of the grossness or inconvenience of actually raising them yourself.

* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale[=/=]BlackComedyRape: The whole "Pineapple Incident". Ted is [[ButLiquorIsQuicker completely wasted]] and meets the very much conscious Trudy who, after a while, takes him to his home and sleeps with him. After he regains conscience, she tells him exactly what happened during the night. Now, did the sleepover happen with meaningful informed consent? No! So, rape, pure and simple. And, as she escapes and never speaks to him again, [[KarmaHoudini she never responds for what she did]]. Of course, [[NotIfTheyEnjoyedItRationalization the fact that he liked her, had a good time and wanted to talk to her again]] is not an excuse for what she did.
