Ted's favorite book is "Love in the time of Cholera" by Garcia Marquez. The book starts with an old man reminiscing how he came to be with the love of his life, similarly to how Ted tells the story to his children. See more
After Ted returns from his appointment with the dermatologist, he tells everyone that she's engaged. A few minutes later, Lily is trying to talk him out of interfering with the wedding plans by pursuing her. She says that the doctor is getting married on Saturday. But Lily doesn't know this information. The audience knows because we heard it from the doctor at the appointment. But Ted never mentioned when the wedding was to take place and no time has passed for Lily to have learned that specific information off-screen yet. However, everything the audience sees involving Present-Day Ted is actually being told in flashback by Future-Ted. He may be simplifying or truncating the story, or remembering it incorrectly.
