Continuity mistake: When the Simpsons are leaving the house to go to the mall. The aerial shot shows that they are leaving in Marge's red station wagon, but the very next shot of them in the car shows that they are in Homer's pink sedan. The shot of the station wagon leaving is probably a re-used shot from a previous episode.
Continuity mistake: At one point in court while everyone is laughing, Patty's hair is colored wrong. Her hair is a similar shade of color as Rod and Todd (who are sitting next to her) rather than her own bluish grey hair.
Continuity mistake: As Chief Wiggum is being interviewed about the fugitive, his arm is shown to be in a cast due to the police van crashing at the Krusty Burger Drive-Thru earlier on. Yet when they get to the hospital, his arm is completely fine. (00:17:30 - 00:19:00)
