Homer Alone - S3-E15

Deliberate mistake: Arnie says that he drops his bagel. When he does he starts to say it, but when we see the helicopter it has just fallen out. If he dropped it at the time he did, then it would be much further down and wouldn't be visible in that shot.

Flaming Moe's - S3-E10

Factual error: When Bart is trying to escape from the girls at the start, Bart's door opens into the room. This would mean the hinges would be inside Bart's room and the girls couldn't have been able to remove them.

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.
