Suggested correction: In the first shot he is holding on using on his one free arm - as soon as his second arm is free he grabs on with that as well, this is the change of position listed.

Suggested correction: That's because Moe is wiping the corner by the wall. We don't see that corner again for a few minutes. Enough time for Moe to move the cloth especially since he's off camera.

More trivia for The Simpsons

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.
