The Nightmare After Krustmas - S28-E10

Continuity mistake: While Krusty is in the hospital talking to Sophie, he pops the IV line from his arm so the tubing hangs down from the fluid bag. But when Krusty tells Sophie that he knows she's reaching out, suddenly Krusty's IV line is properly inserted in the cannula again, only to change back to the tubing hanging down. Also, the white pillow propping up Krusty's foot vanishes and reappears during these shots. (00:05:15)
