New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When Homer is sitting in the Frying Dutchman with the crowd gathered round looking at him, the Captain invites people in. Some start walking in, but in the next shot where they are all gathered round again, it is the same group of people again.

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: You may have to look carefully for this mistake. When Marge picks up the 'Das Butt' video, you can see the cover. In the next shot, you can see Marge holding it so you can't see the cover. But when she hands it over to Ruth, she twists the video round and you can see that nothing is visible. You may have to see it a couple of times.

Audio problem: When Laura tells Bart she has a boyfriend, Bart imagines her ripping out his heart. If you listen and look carefully, you will see the sound of Laura's hand ripping out Bart's heart comes before Laura even touches him.

Casual Person

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Plot hole: When Bart prank-calls Moe and tells him his name is Jimbo Jones, Bart says that he lives at 1094 Evergreen Terrace instead of 742 Evergreen Terrace, where Jimbo and Bart are. If Moe had taken those directions, he wouldn't have arrived at the house, instead he would have gone somewhere different.

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.
