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.
Continuity mistake: When Professor Frink is explaining where Homer is, in "Homer3", Ned Flanders is leaning behind the couch between Bart and Marge, and Chief Wiggum is standing up. When Homer complains, Ned is between Marge and Chief Wiggum, who is now sitting down on the couch.
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.
Continuity mistake: At Asa's funeral Burns and Grandpa both produce a key to unlock the compartment in the Hellfish monument, but even though they both take their keys out of the keyholes after turning them, all 9 keys are in place in the following shots.
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.
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.
Factual error: In "Nightmare On Evergreen Terrace", Martin has a dream, in which he speaks Latin. At one point, he says a verb that doesn't exist: "morire". The words is "mori" (to die), "moritur" (noun dies) or "moreris" (you die). The "moirie" is also on the blackboard behind Martin. (00:08:20)
