Lisa the Iconoclast - S7-E16

Continuity mistake: In class, when Lisa is sitting at her desk, pondering the Jebadiah mystery, her tray of cookies and glass of milk is very visible. Then when Lisa says "The missing piece of the puzzle. I've got it." and runs out of class, the cookies and milk are no longer there.

Much Apu About Nothing - S7-E23

Continuity mistake: When Willy is threatening the children and Skinner it shows that Lisa has her hands on her sides and she is holding nothing. In the following shots, she has a blue book held against her chest.

Who Shot Mr. Burns? (2) - S7-E1

Factual error: When Chief Wiggum opens the revolver's chamber, there's 5 rounds with one open slot. In the next shot, we see the reverse end of the chamber and it's drawn in such a way to indicate those 5 rounds all have bullets in them still, meaning the empty slot is from when Maggie shot Mr. Burns. But revolvers don't eject spent shells automatically and no one handled the gun after it dropped on the floor. So the empty casing should have still been in there when Wiggum opens it up for the first time.

Team Homer - S7-E12

Continuity mistake: When Moe says Mr. Burns is going to have an accident, he's wearing his pin pals shirt. When Moe hits Mr. Burns, he wears a mask and different clothes. Moments later, when talking to his bowling team again, he's back in his pin pals shirt.

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: 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.
