Please Homer, Don't Hammer 'Em - S18-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode Principal Skinner breaks into Bart's doctors office to find out if Bart has a 'kryptonite'. Bart discovered Skinner was allergic to peanuts. On Bart's medical history form under 'known allergies' it has shrimp ticked (they later battle with shrimp and peanut on a stick). However in a previous episode (The Heartbroke Kid, season 16 episode 17) it was discovered that he was allergic to cauliflower, so that should have been on the list as well.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

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.
