Character mistake: Moe says that no women have been to his bar since 1979, yet in "Flaming Moe's" he hires a female waitress. Also, in the episodes "New Kid on the Block" and "Homer the Vigilante," Ruth Powers appears in the bar, and orders a beer in the former episode while Marge visited the bar in "Bart Gets Hit By a Car."
Factual error: On the castle where King Henry VIII is supposed to live, the flags at the top have the pattern of the English flag, being a + shaped cross on a coloured background, but it should be a red cross on a white background. Instead it's a white cross on a blue background. Those are the colours of the Scottish flag, but England and Scotland were separate countries at that point in history. And the cross on the Scottish flag is an X shape rather than a + shape anyway.
Continuity mistake: When Homer is shot at the hippie farm, he ends up with a flower in his head, stem first. But he put the flower in the gun barrel stem first, as well. From a shot at that close a range and that velocity, there's no way the flower could have turned around in mid-air.Cubs Fan
Plot hole: In "Life's a Glitch", Lisa finds out that she has a seat on the spacecraft going to Mars as the proofreader. How, though, was she not informed of this before going to the rocket? The family only finds out about the rocket after finding Krusty's letter/invitation and the fact that she was on the list there would be no reason why she wouldn't have been informed of this. It was still New Year's Day so if it had been by mail then it would have to arrive before the New Year so as to make the plan work, being as it was a public holiday and no mail would be delivered. Therefore it would have to be delivered personally or someone would need to contact her. There were also many well known celebrities and figures ready to board the rocket. I can't imagine they were all home in time to gather their mail and were all somehow contacted, yet Lisa was simply walking around town and at church and they couldn't find her? There was also no evidence to suggest anything would have stopped her from either receiving the invitation in time or being informed of the mission.Lummie
