Bart the Lover - S3-E16

Continuity mistake: The photo Edna sends to Bart differs when he shows his parents. The angle is different from what it was previously, revealing part of a photo frame on the wall which wasn't there before, and the sheets/pillows on the bed are different, and her eyes are closed when they look at it, but when Bart looked at it, they were open. (00:09:05 - 00:18:25)

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.

I Married Marge - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Homer is making a note for Marge, he scribbles out Patty's name and writes his own. When he writes it, the "signature" is neat, but when Marge reads it, it's sloppy.
