Suggested correction: Maybe he was allowed to participate due to good behavior. That's a possibility.

Rubbish. He is denied parole numerous times and shown to be a high risk prisoner.

Good behavior or not, a prison wouldn't furlough an inmate just so they could participate in a snow day.

Homer at the Bat - S3-E17

Other mistake: In the end credits where it says, "Special Guest Voice", Marcia Wallace's name is there. Mrs. Krabappel was originally supposed to be in the episode but wasn't because Jose Canseco disliked his original part. He was originally slated to wake up in bed with her and miss the game, but Canseco's then-wife, Esther Haddad, objected. (00:29:00)

Make Room For Lisa - S10-E16

The drivers behind Homer's car are on the right side of the road.

Either way, one half of the traffic are driving on the wrong side of the road. (00:02:35)

Casual Person

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

Question: Chief Wiggum says that Space Invaders was an addictive video game, and Groundskeeper Willie says, "Video game?" I don't understand why he is so shocked. Could someone help please?

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
