Robin and ted dating in real life
Each character in the series has had their own musical number except Lily (Alyson Hannigan).
Also, a bartender named Carl plays a minor role in the show.The finished episode is later shown to an audience, and their reactions are recorded and added for broadcast.The series' creators joke that the long set-up time between scenes would cross the line from "studio audience" to "hostage situation." Ted (Josh Radnor) and his friends regularly go to Mac Laren's Pub, which is a bar right below Ted's apartment.After the show ended, Josh Radnor kept the blue french horn, Neil Patrick Harris got the Playbook and the gang's Mac Laren's booth, and the three yellow umbrellas now belong to director Pamela Fryman, as well as creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays.Due to Jason Segel's (Marshall) real-life smoking habit, he and his co-star and on-screen wife, Alyson Hannigan (Lily), rarely kissed on-screen during the run of the show; kisses between the two were infrequently scripted, at Hannigan's request, because she disliked the taste and smell of smoke on Segel's breath.This is down to actress Alyson Hannigan (Lily) dislike of singing.
In most "statistics" Barney Stinson (Neil Patrick Harris) expresses, the numbers 83 or 8 and 3 are involved.
The Solids' first performance was at Wesleyan University, which is the alma mater of both Bays and Thomas, as well as of the characters Ted, Marshall, and Lily.
If one were to discount Robin (Cobie Smulders), since she is a main character, then the ex-girlfriend of Ted's (Josh Radnor) who has appeared in the most episodes would be Victoria (Ashley Williams), with 16 overall.
Neither of the characters they play were pregnant on the show, so the costumers had the job of simultaneously hiding the pregnancies of the series' two main female actors.
Alicia Silverstone was originally cast as Stella Zinman but dropped out of the role.
Three of the main actors on the show have had their significant others in multiple episodes.
