The Simpsons

Lisa's First Word - S4-E10

Audio problem: Just after Homer says "About 3 Weeks" in reply to Bart's question about how long Grandpa lived with them, the family all start laughing. However, the second time Homer laughs, his mouth doesn't move.

The Front - S4-E19

Audio problem: When it is announced that Homer has won the award at the High-School Reunion, he gets up from his table and yells "Oh my God." His mouth however is drawn in the style of him saying "Woo-hoo." (00:09:55)

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Audio problem: Ms. Krabappel is telling Bart about the laundry list of sicknesses he had to get out of the test. You can see her mouth doesn't match up when she mentions "...and that unfortunate case of rabies." The studio actually changed what Ms. Krabappel originally said which was "and that unfortunate case of "Tourette's Syndrome." [Some reports say that the original line of Tourette's Syndrome was left in syndications in certain areas. On the DVD version the rabies line has been used]. (00:16:00)

Suggested correction: Go Away, is said in a long shot and you can't see her mouth clear enough to determine if it moves.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Audio problem: When Mr Lanley is playing the piano, he plays some chords with both hands. During the line "Put up your hands and raise your voice", he plays the same chords, but at a different note, with only one hand.

Marge in Chains - S4-E21

Audio problem: At the end of the episode the statue of Jimmy Carter with Marge's hairdo is unveiled, and the assembled throng applaud her reaction. They are all chattering away, but no sound is coming out of their mouths - we only hear the sound of clapping.

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Audio problem: When Laura tells Bart she has a boyfriend, Bart imagines her ripping out his heart. If you listen and look carefully, you will see the sound of Laura's hand ripping out Bart's heart comes before Laura even touches him.

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)

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
