Bart After Dark - S8-E5

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode when Marge is first seen doing the entertainment, the shot shows (from left to right): Flanders, Skinner, Kirk Van Houten, Kent Brockman, Mayor Quimby, Grandpa, and behind them, Lionel Hutz, Lenny, Homer and Dr Hibbert. In a following shot from behind Marge the guests have changed places. Reverend Lovejoy is on the end, then Flanders, then Skinner, then Mr Burns, then Grandpa. There is a seat next to Grandpa which is blocked by Marge's head. Also Lionel Hutz has moved far back. Where did Burns appear from and where did Kirk, Mayor Quimby, and Kent Brockman all go?

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
