The Secret War of Lisa Simpson - S8-E25

Continuity mistake: The vehicle they are driving changes form when they drop off Bart at military school to when they drive home. They leave with Homer's purple car (obvious from the crumpled headlight) and as they leave the military school it's Marge's orange car (obvious from the ski racks and lack of a trunk). It's clear from the entire scene that this is all one trip.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: This is a mistake for the introduction from seasons 2-20 (1991-2009). When Homer screams, he turns round. You see this in a wide shot. There are no boxes to the right of the door in the garage. However, two just appear out of thin air when he runs through the garage. (00:01:50)
