When Flanders Failed - S3-E3

Corrected entry: If Bart has been ditching karate class, wouldn't Akira contact Bart's parents about it? (00:09:15)

Yoshi

Correction: No. He didn't really sign up for anything and Akira never found out his name, he just turned up with his ten dollars and joined in, not like anyone got to know him.

When Flanders Failed - S3-E3

Corrected entry: At the end of the episode Homer says, "To Flanders, the richest left-handed guy I know." The problem is, Flanders isn't; Mr.Burns is the richest left-handed guy he knows, because Homer told Mr.Burns to go to the store. (00:19:50 - 00:21:10)

Correction: Two ways to correct this: 1) Homer isn't exactly the brightest bulb in the box, as evidenced by the multitude of times he's forgotten the names of his loved ones (especially Maggie, poor baby), so the notion that he'd forget about Mr Burns (his boss, who he despises most of the time) isn't outside the realm of possibility. 2) Perhaps, in one of those rare moments of Homer-esque brilliance, he didn't mean "rich" in the monetary sense, but rather in the humanitarian sense.

Brawl in the Family - S13-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer's Vegas wife shows him the video in front of Marge, it shows Homer kissing Ned. This didn't happen when she showed it in the Vegas episode.
