5 mistakes in $pringfield (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling)

$pringfield (or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Legalized Gambling) - S5-E10

Revealing mistake: At the dinner table Homer says something like "as you know it's always been my lifelong ambition to be a blackjack dealer." During this line, for some reason they appear to have used a clip from an older episode (Season 3 / Episode 3 - When Flanders Failed) and dubbed the line over. For one thing, the animation is of a much lower standard than the rest of the episode. And perhaps even more telling, when he says it, he is holding a fork with some food on it, but from the earlier shots we know there is no food in front of him.

Continuity mistake: As Marge arrives home and sees the bullet holes in the door, the shot changes to a POV shot from behind the door and you can see there are some changes in the holes. The first change is there are three bullet holes on the right hand side which are all the same distance from each other, when she enters the middle hole has moved closer to the bottom one. The other change is the large hole in the middle of the door. On the bottom right hand side its shape goes from being a little irregular to a more round shape.

Continuity mistake: When Homer makes the food with the mix of Tom Collins mix, cloves and a pie crust you can see the labels on the Tom Collins mix and the cloves change between mixing the ingredients and after tasting them. Also the top on the Cloves bottle keeps changing through the scene. When Homer takes the bottle out of the fridge you can see a red top on it. When he sits down the top has disappeared and starts pouring the cloves. When the shot changes the red top is back and it disappears after that.
