The Simpsons

That '90s Show - S19-E11

Continuity mistake: This episode rewrites the entire backstory of Marge and Homer. For starters, Lisa and Bart were both not born yet, despite the fact that in the episode "Lisa's First Word," the '84 Summer Olympic games were being broadcast, and Bart and Lisa were both there. In this episode, Homer and Marge were just dating, but again in "Lisa's First Word," they were married and living in their Evergreen Terrace house. Additionally, Maggie was born in the episode "And Maggie Makes Three." Homer also lost all his hair in that episode, yet in this episode in the early 90's he still has a full head of hair.

Eeny Teeny Maya Moe - S20-E16

Continuity mistake: As Marge is feeding Maggie a grapefruit, Bart takes out his bongo drums and plays them. Watch as Bart plays - the shot zooms in from the back of Bart towards Maggie, and you can't see Marge in the scene sitting close to Maggie; the next shot shows her though.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: At the end of 'The Shining, ' the family sits in the snow, Homer holding Willie's portable TV. Later, when they're frozen, Homer is holding nothing, although the TV's snow-topped antenna is still there. Additionally, Homer's left shoulder is missing. This is all due to the lack of correct colorization.

This Little Wiggy - S9-E18

Continuity mistake: When the family are on the conveyer belt at the beginning the family are travelling along. In the next shot (the close up) they are travelling alot slower.

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons drive up to the house, there are no boards on the window. When they can't get in, suddenly there are boards on the windows.

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.

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.
