I Married Marge - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: In the episode which recalls how Homer and Marge got married, Homer writes a note to Marge on a piece of paper entitled 'From The Pen Of Patty' he SCRIBBLES out Patty's name and writes his own, but when Marge reads the note, 'Patty' only has a single straight line through it. The word "HOMER" also changes.

The Old Man and the C Student - S10-E20

Continuity mistake: Springy the Olympic spring that Homer makes has 9 coils. Then we see the large version that has many coils, at the Olympics meeting. Homer's original spring is in his hand and now it has many coils also. When it cuts back to the stage, the large spring has few coils, like the very first time we saw Springy.

Homer's Odyssey - S1-E3

Continuity mistake: At the very end of the episode, when Homer is being carried off by the crowd, you can see that the crowd carrying Homer, the people are small, so you'll have to look closely, but right before the credits, Marge's necklace changes from red to white, back to red and then finishes with white all in one shot. (00:21:00)

Homer's Triple Bypass - S4-E11

Continuity mistake: Homer is interrupted from praying by a nurse who comes into his room and says, "Ssh." However, when she says this, the door is closed, and it is only in the next shot where the door is open immediately and she is pointing to the NO PRAYING sign. (00:14:20)

Suggested correction: That's because Moe is wiping the corner by the wall. We don't see that corner again for a few minutes. Enough time for Moe to move the cloth especially since he's off camera.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
