The Simpsons

Lisa the Vegetarian - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: When Skinner is addressing the class before the meat video we first see him with black trays on the desk to the far right. In the next shot they're much closer to him.

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.

Homerpalooza - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: After Homer dodges the cannonball near the end of the episode, the blue platform that he stood on goes further away from the edge of the stage between shots, and when Homer hugs Marge the platform has disappeared and Peter Frampton's cooler has become closer to Homer.

Homerpalooza - S7-E24

Continuity mistake: When Homer is on stage in Springfield and preparing to get hit by the cannonball, the speaker-tower, behind and slightly to the left of him, completely disappears in the wide shot right before Homer jumps off stage.

King-Size Homer - S7-E7

Continuity mistake: When Homer is stuck in the hole after saving the plant, Marge is seen in the background wearing lipstick. When Mr. Burns asks if there is anything he can do for them, there is a closeup of Marge and her lipstick is gone. When they cut back to Homer, Marge is again wearing lipstick.

Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Revealing mistake: When Lisa is explaining to the curator of the museum why she didn't tell the crowd of what she learned about Jebediah Springfield, if you look in the background none of the people on the far sidewalk are moving, almost frozen in place with some of them with their arms in the air yet everyone and everything in the parade keeps moving right along.

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.

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.
