Casual Person

The PTA Disbands - S6-E21

Plot hole: When Bart locks Principal Skinner and Mrs Krabappel in Skinner's office, and tells them that they can't come out until they've reached an agreement, why didn't Skinner and Krabappel just climb out Skinner's office window instead of spending hours pounding on the door yelling to be let out?

Please Homer, Don't Hammer 'Em - S18-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode Principal Skinner breaks into Bart's doctors office to find out if Bart has a 'kryptonite'. Bart discovered Skinner was allergic to peanuts. On Bart's medical history form under 'known allergies' it has shrimp ticked (they later battle with shrimp and peanut on a stick). However in a previous episode (The Heartbroke Kid, season 16 episode 17) it was discovered that he was allergic to cauliflower, so that should have been on the list as well.
