Continuity mistake: When the first photo is taken of Selma and Troy on their first date, Selma is wearing lipstick. When the photo is published, the photo shows her without lipstick.

Two Bad Neighbors - S7-E13

Continuity mistake: Just before Marge tries to sell Skinner the tie rack, she is writing on something. She then puts her hands down by her waist, and then brings one up to turn it on and both up to pull the motor out. The point is that the pencil and the item she had in her hands have simply vanished, and we never saw her put them down either.
