Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer rings the doorbell of the Flanders' former house to visit the new neighbour, it moves downwards on the door frame. In the first shot it lines up with the gap between the lock and the doorknob, but in the next shot it is beside the doorknob, and in other shots in the episode the doorbell isn't even there. Also, the glass panels on both sidelights line up with the door differently between shots.

Mommie Beerest - S16-E7

Continuity mistake: When Marge arrives home complaining that she is too tired to talk, there is an alarm clock on Homer's night table. When first shown it is a black electric clock, but when it is shown in the very next scene, it is an old orange one. Only a few seconds passed between these scenes, meaning there was no time for anyone to change it.

All's Fair in Oven War - S16-E2

Continuity mistake: Right at the end when James is at the toll booth, we see him wearing a watch on his left hand, then when he's handing the money to the toll booth man, he is not wearing it, then when the shot changes he's wearing it again. (00:20:35)
