Character mistake: In the scene where the imposter Krusty is robbing the Kwik-e-mart, Krusty's hair is blueish green just like the real Krusty, but when Homer is describing the robber he says the the crook has red hair. This is so you have more clues on who the real impostor is. The imposter Krusty is really Sideshow-Bob who has red hair. (00:04:20 - 00:05:05)
Character mistake: The plural form of ignoramus is ignoramuses, not ignorami. The word "ignoramus," a Latin verb-form meaning "we do not know," has no Latin plural-noun form. Therefore, when used as an English noun it correctly pluralizes as "ignoramuses." Someone as smart as Lisa should know this.
Character mistake: Moe says that no women have been to his bar since 1979, yet in "Flaming Moe's" he hires a female waitress. Also, in the episodes "New Kid on the Block" and "Homer the Vigilante," Ruth Powers appears in the bar, and orders a beer in the former episode while Marge visited the bar in "Bart Gets Hit by a Car."
Character mistake: Burkina Faso is listed as being among the Southern Hemisphere locations Bart called when Homer is looking over the phone bill; since Burkina Faso is completely within the Northern Hemisphere, it would have made no sense for Bart to call there.zendaddy621
Character mistake: When Martin Prince supposedly represents Finland's culture for their recreation of the U.N at the Model U.N. Club Martin's outfit is not in fact a Finnish national costume. The outfit he is wearing actually resembles a traditional Sámi outfit. The Sámi people are the indigenous people living in Northern Europe. The specific style of Martin's outfit has characteristics that are more typical to the Sámi on the Swedish side of Sápmi. (00:02:15)
Character mistake: When Chief Wiggum shows up to arrest Nelson during the game at the end of the episode, Bart goes with Wiggum instead while pretending to be Nelson. Even a cop as incompetent as Chief Wiggum would not have mistaken Bart for Nelson since he'd had numerous dealings with both before this episode; Wiggum may not be particularly bright, but he knows who's who in Springfield.zendaddy621
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)
