Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When all the kids are watching TV, we see Wendell, Martin and Milhouse. Absurdly they appear to be right below the ceiling in this shot - when in every other shot they are sitting on the sofa or standing.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: In every other episode, the bar at Moe's Tavern is a regular L-shape. In this episode, it has somehow gained two additional angles on the long side, making it a Z-shape (plus the angle to the short end, which is not shown).

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When Homer is sitting watching cable, the rest of the family comes home and one of them is carrying a plant in a pot, which is put down next to the couch. While they watch and watch cable, it grows very tall and then withers down. When Homer goes behind the TV and starts kissing the wires, the plant has moved to next to the doorway and is suddenly fully grown again.

Continuity mistake: When the family are outside, in the shot just after Homer says "At the worst possible time" you can see the living room - everybody has disappeared in that shot.

Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment - S2-E13

Continuity mistake: When the door is answered to Mr Burns and Mr Smithers, Barney is seen answering, who has orange sleeves. However when the door is opened, you can just make out a white sleeve, which could be none other than Homer's.

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). 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. (00:01:50)
