The Simpsons

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Continuity mistake: Early on in this episode, Mr Burns says something like "this positivly has to be there overnight", the shot goes closer on every word or so. You can see that the background behind Mr Burns is that of the Plant. But when the shot zooms out, the background is now of one of the corridors.

Trash of the Titans - S9-E22

Continuity mistake: When Ray Patterson's / Homer's office is shown, the text on the door is different according to the different shots. When the shot is on the door, the writing on the window (Name and Sanitation Commissioner) is close together, but when the shot is from inside the office with the door open, the writing is apart.

Marge in Chains - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marge comes to pay for her shopping, she empties her left pocket on her coat, but when Sanjay finds it in her pocket, it's in her left pocket. We know it wasn't in her pocket anyway because when Sanjay finds it, it is bigger than the size of her pocket.

Joe Mc

Lisa's Pony - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: At one point in the episode, Homer is on the phone with someone in his work station. I forget who it was, but anyway, when you first see him, the wire is coming from the left side of him and when he turns to his right, the wire is coming from the right side of him.

Jack Kaltenbach

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Continuity mistake: When all the dads are together in front of Homer's house, one of them is wearing a grey sweater. When they enter the RV the man with the grey sweater doesn't, but throughout the episode he keeps appearing and disappearing on the RV.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In 'Time and Punishment,' the blue button on the toaster occasionally differs from being at the bottom of the lever to suddenly at the top, visible in the first shots of Homer fixing the toaster and between shots after Homer sits on the pink fish. (00:09:25 - 00:12:45)

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.
