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?
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.froggers
Plot hole: When Bart prank-calls Moe and tells him his name is Jimbo Jones, Bart says that he lives at 1094 Evergreen Terrace instead of 742 Evergreen Terrace, where Jimbo and Bart are. If Moe had taken those directions, he wouldn't have arrived at the house, instead he would have gone somewhere different.CuriousKid1
Continuity mistake: After the boy's car gets crushed, Bart sells Milhouse's glasses for $600. Then Milhouse knocks over the Coke bottles and the clerk gets the money back and keeps the glasses. The next scene, where they try to get on a train that goes to Springfield, you can see Milhouse in his glasses and throughout the rest of the episode.mrlime
Factual error: During Dwight's attempted bank robbery, he gets hit with a couple of dye packs, then appears a few shots later totally clean. The dye packs banks use are notoriously difficult to wash off once they're triggered; even if Dwight did manage to clean himself up, there would still be remnants of dye on him.Cubs Fan
