24 corrected entries in season 6

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: When Homer check the bills, he finds out Bart called Burkina Faso. He was trying to call countries in the Southern Hempisphere, when Burkina Faso is actually in the Northern Hemisphere.

robbiepwnsall

Correction: Character mistake by Bart.

Guy

Lisa on Ice - S6-E8

Corrected entry: When Lisa runs into Bart's room and throws a snowball at him, it is quite a powerful throw and on target as it hits him in the face. Yet when the kids are receiving academic alerts in the gymnasium, Lisa can barely throw the piece of paper she has been given. Surely she wouldn't have been able to throw the snowball so well if she lacked such skills?

Correction: Not exactly. Once, I threw a tennis ball hard enough to give a kid a good black eye pretty dang fast. However, when my brother was trying to teach me baseball about a day later, with a similar tennis ball, I couldn't throw it nearly as fast.

Bart's Girlfriend - S6-E7

Corrected entry: When Bart is crossing off the days in his calendar to show how long he has to go without seeing the no-good Jessica, he eventually circles the first day, a Monday, saying, "OK, day one," and then sits to wait. Immediately after, Marge sticks her head in the door announcing it's time for church - which is usually on Sunday.

Correction: True typically church is on a Sunday, however there are times when a special service is during the week,(i.e. Bible study, Revival, Youth service and other Holy Days).

Lisa's Rival - S6-E2

Corrected entry: While homer is guarding his sugar and sleeping outside, Marge nudges him to wake him up and he says in his sleep, "In this country, first you get the sugar, then you get the money, and then you get the woman." This is almost a direct quote from Al Pacino's movie Scarface in which he tells his best friend, "In this country, first you get the money, then you get the power and then you get the woman." Homer even says it in a similar accent.

Simpsonholic

Correction: Not really trivia since a large portion of Simpson story lines, dialog, and spoken lines are often taken from old movies. Listing them all would take forever.

William Bergquist

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Homer looks at the phone bill of places Bart has phoned and says "Birkina Faso? Disputed zone?" but Birkina Faso is in the northern hemisphere. And it isn't stupidity because Bart was looking for countries on his globe.

Correction: When Lisa is explaining about the water, Bart shows that he doesn't even know what a hemisphere is. He could have easily forgotten where the line was that Lisa had pointed out to him and was just calling random places. In addition, he could have called other Northern countries to verify the statements.

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Corrected entry: Another flashback mistake: When Homer remembers finding out that Marge was pregnant with Bart, he screams, tears out his hair and runs upstairs, past a picture of Lisa, aged 8, in the pink hat she wears to church. The mistake being that in this flashback neither Bart nor Lisa have been born. This mistake re-occurs seconds later: when Homer remembers finding out Marge was pregnant with Lisa, he runs upstairs past the same picture of Lisa aged 8.

Correction: Sure, like Homer's memory is going to be a paragon of perfection and accuracy. Character mistake, nothing more.

Tailkinker

Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Corrected entry: In "Bart's Comet", it was shown that the only way out of Springfield was a bridge across a circular gorge. Yet, in this episode, there is an easy access border between Springfield and Shelbyville.

Correction: The geography of Springfield changes often; sometimes it is seaside, sometimes landlocked, sometimes it is a small town, or as big as New York City, or exactly the shape of Texas. This is a pretty obvious gag and therefore not a mistake.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Corrected entry: The oil blasts into Bart's treehouse injuring Bart and the dog. But weren't the whole family at the schools oil dedication a few moments before?

Correction: No, obviously not. Only Lisa had to be there to switch on the pump. It's entirely in character for Bart to stay at home and play with the dog rather than go to a school function.

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Corrected entry: After Homer gets his job back at the plant and returns home to complain to a pregnant Marge about how much he hates his life, a picture of Maggie can be seen hanging on the wall behind the couch - despite the fact that Maggie hasn't been born yet.

Dandude776

Correction: This has already been listed, and corrected. The picture may just as well be of Lisa as a baby.

Twotall

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Corrected entry: At the wedding, we see an old Ned and Maude Flanders sitting with the guests, even though Maude dies during series 11, years before the wedding.

Correction: Not really a mistake as the "future" event was only a prediction from a dubious fortune teller and not an accurate or precise account of things to come. As the fortune teller told Lisa of her future, what we see is Lisa imagining the story, and seeing as Lisa would not know of Maude's untimely death, she would still assume, as the fortune teller spoke of the wedding party that everyone she knows now would be there.

Mad Ade

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Corrected entry: Marge is reminding Lisa of the differences between the UK and the USA before she goes to visit Hugh's family in England. Obviously the steak-and-kidney pie remark is a joke, but she says, "Remember, a mile is called a kilometer..." No it isn't. The metric system is used in mainland Europe - miles over here are still miles.

He's My Brother

Correction: This is clearly a mistake on Marge's part, as she is unfamiliar with European life and makes things up based on expressions she vaguely remember hearing about. And isn't it possible, since this episode takes place in the future, that the UK has joined the rest of Europe and switched to the metric system?

Twotall

And Maggie Makes Three - S6-E13

Corrected entry: When Marge tells Homer that a new baby is on the way (Maggie obviously) look in the background and you can see a photo of Maggie already there.

Hamster

Correction: Why can't this be a picture of baby Lisa? She and Maggie does have some similar features (their hair, for instance), and would probably resemble each other even more at infancy.

Twotall

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: In this episode Marge flies to Australia in a plane. Doesn't she have a fear of flying?

OL1V3R666

Correction: Yes, but in the episode where her phobia was first introduced, she was also seen to overcome her fear through therapy. Lots of people have fear of flying and still manage to keep it in check when they have to.

Twotall

Two Dozen and One Greyhounds - S6-E20

Corrected entry: In the show where Santa's Little Helper finds his mate and they have puppies, Monty Burns is out with Waylon Smithers. The two are on the street and see the puppies in a box. He starts stealing the puppies but SURELY the people around him (at least ten) would see that he was stealing the puppies.

Correction: That's the joke. The Simpsons are worried Mr Burns is going to resort to some complicated, evil plan to take their puppies, but he very simply and very obviously just puts them in a bag.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Both the Australian boy's father and Marge say that the call cost $900. However America and Australia have their own dollars and hence different currencies. Because of the exchange rates, surely one of the values would have been different.

OL1V3R666

Correction: At the time they are told about what they owe they are being notified the amount is $900 AUSTRALIAN dollars. Because of exchange rates changing every day, the currency difference will only be made an issue when the amount is actually bought. The Simpsons as well weren't likely going to be able to afford the expensive call so I don't think how much it would be in US dollars was going to be much of a concern.

Lummie

Lisa on Ice - S6-E8

Corrected entry: When Homer is signing Bart's academic alerts, you can see that the writing on them is complete gibberish.

Correction: Homer only has to sign the forms, not print anything out. It could be how he signs them.

Bart's Girlfriend - S6-E7

Corrected entry: When Flanders is singing in the church, the tune is one flat note and his mouth is continually opening and closing

Correction: Flanders doesn't completely close his mouth when singing, and he is probably just breathing at the same time.

OL1V3R666

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: When Bart makes a phone call to the Australian boy, it is daytime in both Springfield and Australia. However when the Australian boy's father phones Bart, it is again daytime in Australia but night-time in Springfield. But due to the Earth's rotation, surely it would have to be night-time in Australia or possibly very early in the morning. It seems to remain daytime there.

OL1V3R666

Correction: The phone calls are made at different times from each other so judging the time zone differences is tricky. However it is possible for the scenes to have daylight in both regions and daylight/night as in the show. If you use New York as reference point, a phone call at 4:30 pm, the call would be receieved at 6:30 am in Australia when it is plenty of time to have sunlight. When the Australian father calls it would be the afternoon and early morning in Springfield. If a call at 4:30 pm from Austrlia, it would be 2:30 am in New York.

Lummie

Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Corrected entry: When Bart takes off his face mask during his ballet performance, all of his fellow dancers have disappeared.

Correction: Bart's doing a solo - the other dancers would have left the stage.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Corrected entry: Groundskeeper Willie says that his father got thrown in the bog, yet in another episode he says that his father was hung for stealing a pig. Also in the episode with the Loch Ness monster, Willies father is alive and well.

Correction: Willy said his father was thrown in the bog instead of having a proper BURIAL (presumably for the pig offence). You're right about the Loch Ness episode though.

Homer the Great - S6-E12

Corrected entry: George Bush says that he has to disagree with Orville, Jack and Mr. But at the beginning of the episode, Lenny says that the stonecutters call each other by number and not by name.

Correction: It seems likely that Lenny meant that the number is their rank and therefore their title. After Homers has taken the secret oath the leader gives him a number but after that no other mention of numbers is used. Bush is not the only one who uses other Stonecutter names. When Moe says they have to kill Homer and the Leader says "Take it easy Moe". Before Homer's birthmark is found the leader addresses Homer by his full name.

Lummie

Springfield Connection - S6-E23

Corrected entry: In the scene where Marge is chopping celery, the knife is always in front of the celery as she chops, and never passes through the stick of celery - so no slices should be cut.

pinkwafer

Correction: This episode was recently shown on T.V. and it does show Marge cutting up the celery.

Jane Doe

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (1) - S6-E25

Corrected entry: During this episode, Skinner mentions that he doesn't have a secretary, but in a much earlier episode called 'Bart the Genius' he has one.

Correction: Skinner said he *doesn't* have a secretary. He didn't say he has *never* had one. He obviously doesn't have one in this episode. He didn't say anything about the secretary he had in Bart the Genius.

Fear of Flying - S6-E11

Corrected entry: Marge seems to have remembered her Fear of Flying rather suddenly - only a few episodes ago she was flying to Itchy & Scratchyland in a helicopter.

Correction: She's only afraid of flying in planes.

Mistakes

This is a mistake for the introduction for the later episodes. 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.

Trivia

The Simpsons holds the record for most guest stars; it is also the only non-variety show to have had appearances from three former Beatles (Paul, George and Ringo).
