Das Bus - S9-E14

Continuity mistake: When everyone discovers Milhouse has eaten the food, Milhouse then says "You wouldn't dare hurt me. You forget, I have the glasses." After this line, Nelson takes off Milhouse's glasses. At this point, a rip is visible on the left side of Nelson's shirt. Milhouse then walks backwards and Nelson is seen re-entering the shot from behind Milhouse. Only now, the rip in Nelson's shirt is now suddenly on the right side of his shirt.
