Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Audio problem: In the scene where Lisa is presenting her bully repellant at the 'Big Science Thing', when she first walks onstage there are murmurs of disapproval among the scientists, in which you can hear one of them saying, "Let's not listen". But after Lisa sprays the repellant on herself and stops Francine in her tracks, the scientists start murmuring in astonishment. However, if you listen closely, you'll hear the same recording of someone saying, "Let's not listen".

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.
