Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Homer says "Ooo, that's a lot of money" at Smithers near the beginning, the background is very different, and doesn't go with the scene. (00:02:45)

Yoshi

Correction: It does look slightly different but it is a different angle and we see the entrance to the cafeteria, which could easily have a vending machine outside so it makes sense.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: When Homer hangs up on his stockbroker, the candy bar in Homer's right hand has disappeared. (00:03:40)

Yoshi

Correction: The hand holding the candy bar is out of shot during most of the conversation between Homer and his stockbroker so he had more than enough time to put it down.

Burns Verkaufen der Kraftwerk - S3-E11

Corrected entry: After Homer loses his job, he is jamming a fork in the toaster. We see sparks coming out of it, proving it's plugged in, so Homer should have been electrocuted as soon as he did this. (00:15:20)

Yoshi

Correction: Electricity takes the shortest route possible, in this case, between the toaster heating elements, through the fork, to some part of the toaster that is grounded. Homer is not grounded, there is no reason for the electricity to go through him. I am not telling you to try it, but you may be surprised.

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.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
