The Simpsons

Half-Decent Proposal - S13-E10

Corrected entry: Artie says that he has been thinking about Marge for the last 20 years. However, we have seen in previous episodes that Marge got pregnant with Bart just out of high school, and he is 10. They can't have graduated more than 11 years ago.

Correction: Marge got pregnant with Bart in 1980 (See Episode: I Married Marge, Season 3). They married soon after this. This is to do with the slightly larger plot hole of everyone in the Simpsons always being the same age (at least they stopped aging after 1990 when the show started). This is a cartoon convention and not a mistake.

Half-Decent Proposal - S13-E10

Corrected entry: Artie Ziff is upset to discover that Marge is married. But not only does he address her as "Marge Simpson" and not "Marge Bouvier" at first, but 5 series ago he met Homer and Marge at a school reunion and Homer said that Marge was his wife.

Correction: Artie is intelligent. If he knows that Marge is married to Homer before, then of course he would say Simpson.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: 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. (00:01:50)
