Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Continuity mistake: In the bit where they sit on the sofa at the start of each episode, there is one rather long one where it starts off with the Simpsons dancing in a line, then gradually evolves into a circus with elephants and men dancing around fire. Look closely in between Homer's right leg and the dancing woman on his right. There is a pile of books on the little shelf underneath the lamp and telephone, and just as the camera starts zooming out from the line of dancing, the orange book on the left noticeably changes to purple. (00:01:20)

Chief Wiggum says "isn't this 742 Evergreen Terrace?" to which Lovejoy replies that it's the house next door. In the next shot, you see Snake pulling out of the garage and speeding away. Everybody knows that 742 Evergreen Terrace is, in fact, the Simpson residence.
