Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In class, when Lisa is sitting at her desk, pondering the Jebadiah mystery, her tray of cookies and glass of milk is very visible. Then when Lisa says "The missing piece of the puzzle. I've got it." and runs out of class, the cookies and milk are no longer there.

Milhouse Doesn't Live Here Anymore - S15-E12

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the episode when all the children are on the bus we can see that in front of Nelson is Bart and behind him are Lewis, Martin and Wendall. Then when the shot changes to behind Nelson, Lewis has swapped places with Bart, Bart has disappeared and some weird kid is sitting where Lewis was. (00:00:40)

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: Willie rips off his entire shirt before he fights the wolf, but in the next scene, when he is wrestling the wolf, he is wearing a torn-up shirt. (00:18:40)

Homie the Clown - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: In the last scene when Homer is about to attempt the loop trick, it is seen several times that the Mafia guys are not standing in a straight line. In all shots they are except the one where Homer fails, and then says "Ta da,". The Mafia are shown head to head in a straight line.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: On the trip back from the gardens, Homer rear ends the car in front of him on the bridge which sends Maggie flying out of the car. In a long shot of the bridge whilst Maggie is in the air you can see the car has changed to an orange color instead of the usual light purple color. The two cars in front of them also change during shot. The one in front of the simpsons changes from a normal red mid sized car to a blue van, whilst the car in front of that one changes from being a green car to a blue one during the aerial shot of Maggie.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
