Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Corrected entry: When Smithers realises that he shot Jasper, instead of Mr. Burns, he mentions that he left the meeting early in order to watch Pardon My Zinger. However, in the previous episode, you see him walk out of the meeting with everyone else, very slowly. (00:06:25)

Correction: True, however, everyone stopped walking after exiting the meeting and Smithers continued to walk, so he did leave before anyone else did. He said he left the meeting early probably because he was delirious and couldn't remember it correctly.

Corrected entry: Burns' sunblocker was meant to always block out the sun above Springfield. Yet when the Townspeople go to rip the sunblocker down, it is perfect daylight. (00:03:30)

Correction: They weren't actually in Springfield when they ripped it down. The Sunblocker was obviously out of town as shown where the scene where they go to rip it down starts.

Corrected entry: At the end of this episode everyone is in Mr. Burns' hospital room wondering how Maggie could shoot him. In some shots Maggie has a red bow and in others it is blue.

Correction: Actually, throughout the whole scene it is blue.


Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Corrected entry: When Smithers is walking into the church, he is wearing a long coat. But in the next shot when you see him inside the confession booth, he is now wearing a waist length green jacket.

Correction: We see Smithers outside the church wearing the long trench coat, then it cuts to him in the confession booth wearing a blazer. Between those two shots, there is more than enough time for him to take off his trench coat, and he's wearing the blazer underneath. There is no mistake.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Corrected entry: The Police and Smithers go to the Retirement Castle to question the old man about Smithers shooting him in the boot; this would be very difficult seeing as the retirement castle was destroyed in Part 1.

Correction: We've seen on countless occasions that the retirement home is a very poorly kept one. We also know the old folks are stubborn there. Just because it split in half probably wouldn't be enough to make most of them move out. It wasn't entirely destroyed in part one, just split and at an angle.

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
[The gas needle immediately drops to empty and the car stops.]
Homer: D'oh.



This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage.



The Simpsons holds the record for most guest stars; it is also the only non-variety show to have had appearances from three former Beatles (Paul, George and Ringo).
