2 corrected entries in Midnight Rx

Midnight Rx - S16-E6

Corrected entry: The towel Flanders wraps around Apu's head changes shape between when it is first applied, and when the customs agent sees Apu. First it is an almost perfectly round shape with no loose ends, then it becomes a more flat shape with a loose end hanging over Apu's shoulder. When Apu is seen inside the police van, the towel is once again in the original shape.

Correction: Since it's a towel, and not an actual turban, it's not a surprise it loses shape and comes apart. And there is time before Apu is thrown into the police van for him, or one of the others, to have rewound it.

Midnight Rx - S16-E6

Corrected entry: In this episode Apu says in the car on the way to Canada that he worships several gods. But in a much earlier episode, "Homer's Barbershop Quartet" during a flashback when Apu is asked to change his name he says "It is a great dishonour to my ancestors and my god."

Correction: Apu is a Hindu. Hinduism teaches that there is in fact only one god (Brahman), but that it manifests itself in many different ways, such as Vishnu, Shiva, Ganesha etc. Each of these manifestations can be worshipped as a deity, and most Hindus chooses which manifestation to worship (the "personal" aspect of the deity, Ishvara). But ultimately all prayers and sacrifices are directed to the same entity. As we can see through the entire series, Apu worships Ganesha primarily, but he would recognize other forms of god, called Devas, which often translates as "gods". It is not entirely accurate, but that's the problem with translation. So there is nothing wrong with him expressing both a monotheistic and polytheistic wiew of the world.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage.
