The City of New York vs. Homer Simpson - S9-E1

Continuity mistake: In Homer's flashback, when the pimp chases Homer, who is covered in garbage, Homer runs away from him on one side of the street.

Continuity mistake: When Bart is standing on the bench, Jimbo and Milhouse are standing in The Front row, on the right side of the screen. But when there's the closeup (a second later), there are children shown in front of Jimbo and Milhouse and the girl with the purple hair is gone.

Lisa's Sax - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: In the episode 'Lisa's Sax' (season 9, ep. 3), King Toot's music store is across the street from Moe's Tavern.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

Continuity mistake: The right handle plate on Homer's gun is fastened with two screws throughout the entire episode. But in the scene where he promises Marge to get rid of the gun and they hug in the kitchen, the gun is seen lying on the table with only one screw in the handle.
