Jaws Wired Shut - S13-E9

Continuity mistake: When Marge and Homer are at the Springfield formal ball at the Country Club, about half way through the ball, there is a woman with her back to the camera as she is talking to Marge and Homer. Homer is on Marge's left side. In the next shot when Marge's back is to the camera and you can see Marge still talking to the woman, Homer is no longer on Marge's left side, he is gone.

The Bart Wants What It Wants - S13-E11

Continuity mistake: When Bart is in the ice cream parlor breaking up with Greta, the waiter tells him "We get that a lot around here" and point over to Chief Wiggum and Lou sitting behind and to the left of Bart. Bart turns his head all the way to the side to see them. The focus then goes to Chief Wiggum and Lou, but when their part is done and the "camera" goes back to Bart and Greta, the policemen are sitting behind and to the right of Greta, so that Bart would not have had to turn his head to see them.

The Parent Rap - S13-E2

Continuity mistake: The stocks that are put on Marge and Homer are fitted so that their head and hands are secured and cannot be removed.

Weekend at Burnsie's - S13-E16

Audio problem: There is an elaborate bass line right at the end of Phish's song; however, the bassist's fingers don't even move. There's no way he could play that line without moving his hand. (00:13:50)

Tree House of Horror XII - S13-E1

Continuity mistake: In 'Wiz Kids,' we see Ralph tied up in Lord Montymort's lair. Between a wide shot and closeup, when he says "Dying tickles," his cloak goes from undone to done up. (00:17:05)

Hunka Hunka Burns in Love - S13-E4

Continuity mistake: In one of the shots after Mr Burns has broken the fortune cookie, the remains of it vanish from the table. There is something else on the table, nearer Smithers, but it and the cookie are very different shapes, so it's very difficult to confuse the two.

David Mercier

Sweets and Sour Marge - S13-E8

Continuity mistake: When Lou throws a small chocolate statue in the fire, his skin is yellow when it is usually brown.

Gump Roast - S13-E17

Deliberate mistake: Where do the "professional roasters" get those home movies of Homer's stupidity? No one could possibly have filmed his skiing mishap or the Funzo incident. Also, how does Maggie keep a mental record of celebrities that she didn't meet in person?

Papa's Got a Brand New Badge - S13-E22

I Am Furious Yellow - S13-E18

Factual error: When the creator of Danger Dog draws a picture of Skinner on a notepad and puts it on the projector, it is perfectly visible. It shouldn't have been, seeing as the pad was so thick.

Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
