5 corrected entries in The Springfield Files

The Springfield Files - S8-E10

Corrected entry: After Homer comes in contact with the alien and he's reporting the sighting to Police Chief Wiggum, he says "And the alien appears every friday night." How could he know that if he only saw the alien once?

Matthew Gem

Correction: Homer doesn't know this; he is just making a very rash assumption about the alien sightings.

The Springfield Files - S8-E10

Corrected entry: Mulder and Scully refer to the alien as a UFO (meaning unidentified flying object) yet said alien never actually flies.

Correction: Character mistake, not a television show mistake.

Matty Blast

The Springfield Files - S8-E10

Corrected entry: The mysterious figure in the background of the lie-detector scene is the Cigarette-Smoking Man, the arch-nemesis of the two FBI agents from The X-Files.

He's My Brother

Correction: Bit too obvious to be trivia.

The Springfield Files - S8-E10

Corrected entry: Homer is at a stall which is selling T-shirts. He discovers that they had sold out of 'Homer is a dope' T-shirts. After Marge promotes this shirt to Homer, with all it's good points, Homer turns to buy 10 of them - we see the man accepting the money - But they have sold out, remember.

Correction: Actually, the man selling the shirts doesn't accept any cash, as Homer didn't offer him any. Homer turns around and says "I'll buy 2", then it's a different shot. This is basically there to show off Homer's stupidity.

The Springfield Files - S8-E10

Corrected entry: How is Homer supposed to know that Santa's Little Helper's birthday is the same day as his, when he picked him up at the race track?

Correction: When someone adopts a pet, the dog's birthdate is given in the accompanying papers which also lists the shots, when they were given, and if the pet is spayed or neutered. Even though Homer picks up Santa's Little Helper at the race track, the owners have to know how old their dogs are in order to see how long they can race (over their lifespan), and when they need to administer shots and any other medications to the dogs.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. 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.
