Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: By the vending machine, Lisa first points her card at the cell on the right, then there's a zoom on the cells and we see her hand starting to point again, but this time at the cell in the middle. In the next shot, she lowers her hand with the card, which however in this shot is pointing at the cell on the right again.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Homer slides down a big pipe and smashes through one of the windows on the right side of the car. But when Homer crashes into the chestnut tree, it is fully repaired. (00:01:25)

Suggested correction: You can see no lines on that window indicating glass is there as is shown on all other windows in the show. So the glass is missing and so still broken.

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.
