Continuity mistake: Lisa has just exited the shopping mall. Gary pulls up in the Porsche. When Gary pulls up onto the curb, the cars behind the Porsche include A white coupe, a blue sedan, a silver Chevy Monza and a brown Lincoln Town Car. Gary gets out of the Porsche and says " Lis' we're running late" and the cars have completely changed except the silver Chevy Monza. Lisa turns to get into the Porsche and the cars behind them have completely changed yet again. Now they include a Brown Van and a silver 4 door Plymouth Horizon.
