Suggested correction: Not really a mistake. Street lights can be in segments.

When the shot is more on Bart when he's asking what Sherri and Terri are talking about, there's no street lamps seen, even though when it cuts back to the girls, there are street lamps seen that should have been visible in the previous shot.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
