Homer Badman - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Homer's badly-edited "Rock Bottom" interview is shown on TV, the hands on the clock behind him keep jumping around between all the different cuts. But when we saw him giving the actual interview earlier, the clock behind him stayed at 5 o'clock the whole time. The hands on the clock are also slightly different.

Homer Badman - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: Homers car gets blown over by a helicopter, and gets dented, and all the windows smash. But in the next overhead shot the car is parked on the side of the road, perfectly intact.

Continuity mistake: Just after Marge's left jacket pocket bursts open at the candy convention the shot changes to a shot of Marge's face. The next shot her right pocket has suddenly burst as well and the candy in it is no where to be seen.

Homer Badman - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When one of the pockets of Marge's coat explodes (when Homer is stealing the rare Gummi), a huge pile of candy comes pouring out. When she bends down to pick some up, there isn't nearly as much candy there as before. There are people picking up the candy with her, but they would have to pick it up extremely fast, and they aren't.

Continuity mistake: After Marge's left pocket rips in the candy convention, she goes to start picking up the candy when we see that the right pocket has ripped all of a sudden. When Homer and Marge start running away the pockets are no longer ripped and full of candy again.

Homer Badman - S6-E9

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Marge's coat pocket bursts open, the candy flows onto the floor. However if you look to the right of her some of the candy seems to almost float above the floor. The candy's direction is completely to the right but because of the floor being angled it spreads over one woman who is standing and there is nothing there to support the candy. (00:04:30)

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psychology.
Homer: Reverse psychology? That sounds too complicated.
Homer's brain: Alright, don't use reverse psychology.
Homer: Alright, I will!

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.
