Continuity mistake: At the German Hofbräuhaus party Homer talks to Eddie about getting back to work. In the background we see his old friend Betsy, who, after a short close-up on Homer, appears from the left to ask him for a dance, while there are totally different people in the background.
Continuity mistake: The establishing shot of the quay scene shows a close-up of a flock of seagulls. However, as the scene goes on we don't see any birds at all even when the camera shows the whole quay, but we hear them shriek. Only during the credits there is a skipped shot of the quay where it's crowded with seagulls.
Continuity mistake: In the scene at the roadside bathroom Eddie is scared by the sound of a jet, thinking it's an earthquake. There's a very short cut to the aircraft, then back to Eddie, and all of a sudden she is not wearing her cap and hood anymore, for which there was neither a reason nor sufficient time.
Continuity mistake: When Homer drives off when they leave Summit Inn in the snow, he skids across the parking lot of the hotel, but a bit later it looks more like a frozen pond. As a pond could not be at level with the road and they didn't go down any slope this is a strange transformation.
Revealing mistake: When Eddie shoots the cashier at the Wady liquor store he falls backwards into a shelf with whiskey bottles. You hear some bottles break and see some splinters flying, and then there comes a Niagara-style whiskeyfall pouring over the shelf that must have come from a large reservoir behind.
Continuity mistake: When Homer is packing to leave for Oregon you hear the radio blaring in the background. His shirt is still unbuttoned, but then there is a cut to him watching himself in the mirror while he tries various basball caps, with his shirt buttoned and wearing a jacket. Ths wouldn't pass as a mistake if the radio didn't suggest continiuty.
Other mistake: When Eddie does her first liquor store robbery in Wady she shoots at the cashier because he looks at the gun that's placed under the cash register. We get the impression that she spots the gun too, but she doesn't bend over the counter enough to be able to see it.
