Then when Spongebob yells "Am I right?" to the audience, the spotlight is on him and as he turns to talk to Sandy again, the spotlight is altogether gone; it's not on either one of them.

No Free Rides / I'm Your Biggest Fanatic - S2-E10

Continuity mistake: In "No Free Rides", when Spongebob and Mrs. Puff are fighting in the car, they eventually go over a cliff. We see a view of a police car under them, next to the cliff and a billboard. We also see a shot of the police car facing a hill or two. The car flies out of nowhere onto the police car, from behind a hill, not off the cliff. The landscape in the scene changes in each shot.
