Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When the police trap Snake after the car chase they say he's trapped in meaning there was only one way in. So how does Snake get his car stuck in the alleyway when he must have got through the alleyway to begin with?

Correction: There was only one way in and out for a car as Snake finds out. The alley they both came in is obviously different from the one Snake tries to escape through. This is further confirmed by the fact that the police car is not parked at the end of the alley Snake tries to exit through.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: During the car chase scene, Snake drives into the parking lot and there is a large "Parking" sign yet when the police come through the sign is gone. (00:07:30)

Lummie Premium member

Correction: The shot with Snake coming through is a wide shot where we can see the sign. When the police come through the shot is much tighter and the sign is above what we can see.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Lisa is in Skinner's office after sassing Miss Hoover, her hands change position between shots. (00:14:40)

Yoshi

Correction: Again true but she has time to change the position of her hands when we see her from behind. We can't see her hands during this time.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: In Bart's imagination, when he is in the courtroom with his face censored, when the guy with the knife grabs Bart, the judge has disappeared. (00:13:05)

Yoshi

Correction: Not possible to tell, the shot is looking up from a very low position. The judge could easily still be there without us being able to see him.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When the mean girls try to get Lisa out of the bad girl's washroom, the magazine that one of the girls was carrying disappears. The cigarette that the other girl was holding also vanishes. (00:11:40)

Yoshi

Correction: This is all true but the girl whose magazine disappears is out of shot for long enough to have dropped it or even put it down. The other girl's hand is out of sight long enough for her to have dropped it just as we saw the first girl do earlier.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Lisa enters the bad girl's washroom for the first time, the books she is carrying switches arms. (00:11:40)

Yoshi

Correction: This is true but not in the least bit surprising since we clearly see Lisa switching the books from under her left arm to under her right.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: Bart is seen repeatedly switching where he sits in the back of the car before and during the car chase. (00:05:50 - 00:08:10)

Yoshi

Correction: The submission is nonsense. Yes we see Bart moving but he moves himself and then we see him being thrown about in the car during the chase all of which is completely normal.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When the cops pick up Bart at the Simpson house, it is daytime. Immediately after it is nighttime. (00:05:30)

Yoshi

Correction: It's a completely different shot which does not have to directly follow in time.

Separate Vocations - S3-E18

Corrected entry: When Snake attempts to kill Bart, his plan fails when his car gets stuck between two walls. Right after, Bart and the cops are standing beside the car. (00:08:35 - 00:09:20)

Yoshi

Correction: I'm not sure if this was in there originally but on the DVD version they have a shot where the cops say "Good thing this alley way got so narrow" which means this was done intentionally for humor.

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.
