Marge in Chains - S4-E21

Continuity mistake: When Marge comes to pay for her shopping, she empties her left pocket on her coat, but when Sanjay finds it in her pocket, it's in her left pocket. We know it wasn't in her pocket anyway because when Sanjay finds it, it is bigger than the size of her pocket.

Homer's Triple Bypass - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: When Homer is eating the bacon and what looks like scrambled eggs after claiming Marge's oatmeal had a bug on it, the close up of the bacon shows that it is pink/purple and the eggs are yellow but the in the following shot, when Bart says, "Dad, there's a bug on that." the bacon and the eggs switch colours.

Marge vs. the Monorail - S4-E12

Plot hole: When Homer is trying to stop the Monorail, he grabs the big M from the side of the train and uses it as an anchor. However, when the M cuts through 'Springfield's Oldest Tree', there is no visible monorail track or supporting pole in the background.

Marge Gets a Job - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: When Bart comes back into the classroom after the wolf attack, Ms Krabappel is writing on the black board and there is quite a bit of writing up there. After we see Bart the shot goes back to Ms Krabappel and all the writing has gone.

New Kid on the Block - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: You may have to look carefully for this mistake. When Marge picks up the 'Das Butt' video, you can see the cover. In the next shot, you can see Marge holding it so you can't see the cover. But when she hands it over to Ruth, she twists the video round and you can see that nothing is visible. You may have to see it a couple of times.

Mr. Plow - S4-E9

Continuity mistake: When Bart arrives at school in the bus, after Homer plowed the road for the bus, the sidewalk is covered in snow except for Martin's footprints. Then, when he gets out, the sidewalk has been shovelled, as there is no snow on it. Following this, Bart is pelted by snowballs, which sends him falling face-first into the sidewalk, which is once again covered in snow. (00:10:20)

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
[The gas needle immediately drops to empty and the car stops.]
Homer: D'oh.
