Ned Flanders: It's so nice to shop for a woman again. The last thing I bought for a woman was a casket.
Hank Azaria, voice for many of the characters on the Simpsons, said in an interview with Conan O'Brien that most of his voices were just bad celebrity impressions. Moe Syzlak is Al Pacino, Louie the cop is Sylvester Stalone, and Comic Book Guy is someone he went to college with who had a personality much like comic book guys. With other characters who Azaria doesn't do are also celebrity impressions. For example, Mayor Quimby is JFK. See more...

The Simpsons (1989) - 71 mistakes in season 1
Continuity: When Homer walks out Circus of Values with his purchases, he bumps into Flanders, and all the presents scatter everywhere. Watch out for a red present with a green bow that goes flying near the left hand side of the screen. As soon as it hits the ground it turns into a pink box with a white bow wrapped around it, with no shot changes.
Continuity: Just before the kitchen mistake, Marge walks through the doorway from a room with a piano, beside a bare wall, and on the piano are two frames and music sheets. But when Marge turns the jar upside down, there is a large picture on the wall beside the piano, and the music sheets and frames have disappeared from the piano.
Other: When Marge is speaking on the phone to her sisters, her sisters say something that sounds like they said that Homer is ugly. Marge then puts down the phone wire that she was curling round her finger. It is easier to see this when you are using DVD, because then you can go into slow-motion, but you can temporarily see that the phone wire disappears when Marge puts it down. It is at the very end of an early scene, because as soon as this happens it changes to another scene.
Continuity: When Homer has been informed about the Christmas money being spent on Bart getting his tattoo surgically removed, he leaves the house. When he opens and closes the door to leave, the wreath on the door is white with a red bow. When Homer then turns to look his Christmas decorations, the wreath is now green.
