I Don't Wanna Know Why the Caged Bird Sings - S19-E4

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.

Marge vs. Singles, Seniors, Childless Couples and Teens, and Gays - S15-E8

Factual error: The symbols on the heads of the Teletubbies on stage are wrong. They did use the word 'teletubbies', so they're meant to be the same as the real world. (00:05:40)
