Lisa's Date with Density - S8-E7

Continuity mistake: Whilst Chalmers notices the Honda symbol missing from his car, there are four holes in the corners of the leftover symbol. There is a screw in one of the holes indicating the symbol would have holes in its corners to hold it down. Later when Skinner finds the Honda symbol in Nelson's locker you can see there are no holes in the symbol.

Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Lisa is explaining to the curator of the museum why she didn't tell the crowd of what she learned about Jebediah Springfield, if you look in the background none of the people on the far sidewalk are moving, almost frozen in place with some of them with their arms in the air yet everyone and everything in the parade keeps moving right along.

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Audio problem: Ms. Krabappel is telling Bart about the laundry list of sicknesses he had to get out of the test. You can see her mouth doesn't match up when she mentions "...and that unfortunate case of rabies." The studio actually changed what Ms. Krabappel originally said which was "and that unfortunate case of "Tourette's Syndrome." [Some reports say that the original line of Tourette's Syndrome was left in syndications in certain areas. On the DVD version the rabies line has been used].

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
