New today Continuity mistake: After Lou shoots at Bart's skateboard, before Bart flies past the truck's windshield, when we see Krusty Burger across the street (note the post and triple window), the road surface has double solid yellow lines. The double lines can also be seen when Lou scrapes Bart off the window. However, when Bart is handcuffed to the post, that same road now has single broken lines.
New today Continuity mistake: When Homer and Bart are on the motorcycle trying to get rid of the bomb, the bomb slips out of Bart's grip. When he's hanging onto his father's shirt, Bart first grips the bomb's handle with his palm and fingers facing the front of the bomb, with the clock. Then when he's hanging onto his father's hair, Bart's hand has flipped around and he's now gripping the bomb's handle with his palm and fingers facing the back of the bomb. Something to look out for is the shot just before the close-up of Chief Wiggum, because as Bart raises his arm the bomb actually flips over in his hand while we're watching. Quite impossible.
New this week Continuity mistake: When Lisa sees Milhouse near the end, the door on his house hangs askew from the right door jamb and there is nothing above it. However, after Colin shows up, in the next shot when Lisa jumps up, the door now hangs askew from the left door jamb and there is wiring hanging above it (from the broken light fixture). Also note that the roof is much lower. Additionally, Lisa's position when talking to Colin changes - first they're standing to the left of the house, then to the right of it, then in front of the stairs at the center.
New this week Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons first get to the spherical cage at the carnival, the truck is parked with its front facing forward and its back end facing away, behind the ride. However, when Homer gets in and drives away, the truck has turned about 90°, with its back end now facing the ride perfectly.
New this week Continuity mistake: When the angry mob breaks down the front door of the house, the door knob is on the right side of the fallen door, at Chief Wiggum's feet. However, when Maggie breaks her bottle and thrusts it forward, in the next shot as Mr. Teeny turns and runs away, the doorknob is on the left side of the door, at Bumblebee Man's feet.
New this week Continuity mistake: After Homer nailed the bedroom door shut and then mimicked the sound of a chainsaw, when the hands of the angry mob push through the holes again, we see Marge and Lisa sitting at the edge of the bed where the bed's tall footboard should be. The footboard is back when Spider Pig pushes the plank off the windowsill.
New this week Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are watching the news about the silo found in the lake, the TV sits on the dresser in front of their bed. The TV has vanished when Lisa runs into the bedroom, and when Marge tells Homer to go out, face the mob and apologize for what he did, the rest of the wall is visible, sans TV.
