The Simpsons Movie

Marge,Lisa and Bart are recaptured, Leaving Homer as the only free Simpson. Homer returns to Springfield to save everyone. A bomb is lowered down into the dome and the springfieldians attempt to escape up the wire holding it, but Homer knocks them all back down sliding down it to rescue them. He and Bart then take the bomb and ride a motorcycle up the dome where BArt throws it out of the small hole at the top/ The dome explodes and collapses but Homer and Bart outride it to the bottom before they fall. The bad guy politician (I forget his name) then tries to kill Homer but Maggie saves him by dropping a rock on the guy. Homer and Marge reunite and everyone lives happily ever after.

Continuity mistake: When Maggie does her disappearing act through the sinkhole, and Marge rushes to get Homer, the wooden porch swing is directly in front of the window, with its top beam as high as the top of the window. When Homer says, "This dome can play tricks on you," note the door and window behind Marge, because the swing is now gone. (00:31:10)

Trivia: As inspiration for the crowd scene in the film, the production staff spent a long time looking at the Simpsons poster that features over 320 of the show's characters. Groening said that they did try to put every single character into the film, with 98 having speaking parts.

Question: In the scene, where Lenny informs Homer that they're giving away free donuts at the shop and that they're going very fast, why didn't Homer ask Lenny to save him some? If he did and Lenny agreed, Homer wouldn't have to hurry up nor dump silo in the lake, thus the dome situation could have been avoided.

Answer: Homer has been known not to make the smartest decisions, and the decisions he does make, he makes without fully thinking them through. Clearly he wanted to get some donuts as quickly as possible without thinking of any other ways, so he decided to ditch the silo in the lake as it would be the fastest way of getting it off his back, even if it's not the smartest. Also, putting that aside, he likely wanted his own pick of the donuts rather than have Lenny guess what he wanted.
