Homer's Triple Bypass - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Homer is interrupted from praying by a nurse who comes into his room and says, "Ssh." However, when she says this, the door is closed, and it is only in the next shot where the door is open immediately and she is pointing to the NO PRAYING sign.

Other mistake: In the beginning of the episode when Chief Wiggum orders a battering ram through The Front door of a house, Reverend Lovejoy opens the door and questions what they are doing. Chief Wiggum says "isn't this 742 Evergreen Terrace?" to which Lovejoy replies that it's the house next door. In the next shot, you see Snake pulling out of the garage and speeding away. Everybody knows that 742 Evergreen Terrace is, in fact, the Simpson residence.

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.
