Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: At the birthday party Maggie is playing in the sandbox with one of Apu's kids. She and Apu's son both have pink with green polka-dots party hats on. After she is taken out of the sandbox by Moe, Homer takes her and she keeps squirming out of his arms. Look on her head and you'll see that her party hat has disappeared, and never comes back.

Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky - S14-E16

Continuity mistake: When Skinner opens the door to the room Lisa is in, there is a red book with white rings around it behind the door, it is easily the most noticeable book on the shelf. When the shot cuts back, the book is suddenly blue.

Brake My Wife, Please - S14-E20

Continuity mistake: Whilst Moe is talking to himself about going back to barber college the door to his bar is wide open. When the shot changes to him when he says "Who the hell am I talking to?" the door has suddenly closed. There was not enough time for it to close between shots.

Dude, Where's My Ranch? - S14-E18

Plot hole: Lisa says Luke was her 1st crush. What about Nelson, Corey, Mr. Bergstrom, Thelonius and the boy that works at the library in 'Bart's Girlfriend'?

Special Edna (a.k.a. Love and Marking) - S14-E7

Factual error: During the video screening at the Teacher of the Year committee, the panel is watching the teacher who acts like Robin Williams. In the video the main judge says "Next" and pushes a button on the video control. It goes to the video that Bart Simpson sent in. How was this possible? The video control would only fast forward the video and two separate entries would not be sent in on the same tape. The committee wouldn't have spliced the footage together onto the same tape as the tapes were piled up on the desk. At the start of the scene one of the judges mentions to put in the next tape.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: On the trip back from the gardens, Homer rear ends the car in front of him on the bridge which sends Maggie flying out of the car. In a long shot of the bridge whilst Maggie is in the air you can see the car has changed to an orange color instead of the usual light purple color. The two cars in front of them also change during shot. The one in front of the simpsons changes from a normal red mid sized car to a blue van, whilst the car in front of that one changes from being a green car to a blue one during the aerial shot of Maggie.

Continuity mistake: When Homer bangs on the screen in the testing booth, the little sign on the top left of the glass that was there earlier is no longer there.

Moe Baby Blues - S14-E22

Continuity mistake: When Homer goes to catch Maggie (after flying out of the car) he jumps over two cars in front of him and then falls over the second one and there is no sign of any cars in front of him. However in the shot before he climbs over the cars the aerial shot of Maggie flying in the air, all the cars on the bridge are bumper to bumper with no spaces in between them.

Audio problem: Homer groans and Mr Burns' lawyer points out that the note that he groans in is A flat. On the version that I heard it on (The Simpsons Christmas 2 DVD) he actually groans in the note A.
