In the Television series, How I met Your Mother, Season 8 Episode 11, a reference has been made to a point of time 5 years ago where Barney doesn't follows the rule of a "Jinx" and ends up in a hospital.

My question is, does this refers to an actual episode in some previous season of the television show? Because I think that I remember Barney in Hospital.

'5 years ago' can be interpreted as '5 seasons ago'. – Oliver_C Dec 23 '12 at 10:07

That flashback was from the Season 3 finale Miracles:

Barney was crossing the street to the get to the hospital when he is hit by a bus driving the wrong way down a one way street.

Why Barney get to the hospital? Because Ted had a car accident in a taxi. – Soner Gönül Dec 23 '12 at 10:27
@SonerGönül - Yes, I provided a link so people can read more about the episode if they are interested. – Oliver_C Dec 23 '12 at 10:35
Was there a mention of "Ginx" in the episode? – user221287 Dec 24 '12 at 9:02
@user221287 - No, the scene where they basically explain their 'Jinx' game was not in the Miracle episode. You can see that Lily is wearing a wig so her hair looks like in that episode, but with Marshall they didn't bother. His hair is noticably shorter. – Oliver_C Dec 24 '12 at 11:23
