Lemon of Troy - S6-E24

Plot hole: In the scene where Bart has to choose the right Roman numeral door in order to avoid the tigers; right as the Shelbyville kids come bursting through the outer door, Bart picks the right door through humorous deduction and escapes. However, the Shelbyville kids are unable to open the door which doesn't make sense, since there is no lock on the door and there wasn't any mention of Bart blocking or sabotaging the door because only a few seconds later we see him on the street continuing to fret about the lemon tree.

Bart's Comet - S6-E14

Continuity mistake: The location of the comet in the sky changes direction at several points. Whilst it's apparent size and altitude will of course change, the direction it is coming from cannot. As an example, it is seen looming over the power plant towers, but when Ned is on the hill, it's no longer there.
