Please Homer, Don't Hammer 'Em - S18-E3

Continuity mistake: In this episode Principal Skinner breaks into Bart's doctors office to find out if Bart has a 'kryptonite'. Bart discovered Skinner was allergic to peanuts. On Bart's medical history form under 'known allergies' it has shrimp ticked (they later battle with shrimp and peanut on a stick). However in a previous episode (The Heartbroke Kid, season 16 episode 17) it was discovered that he was allergic to cauliflower, so that should have been on the list as well.

Husbands and Knives - S19-E7

Continuity mistake: In the surgeon's office there are three certificates on the wall with ribbons on them. In the first shot there are two red ribbons and a blue one but in the shot where Homer stands up to read the bill all the ribbons are red.

Bart on the Road - S7-E20

Continuity mistake: After the boy's car gets crushed, Bart sells Milhouse's glasses for $600. Then Milhouse knocks over the Coke bottles and the clerk gets the money back and keeps the glasses. The next scene, where they try to get on a train that goes to Springfield, you can see Milhouse in his glasses and throughout the rest of the episode.

Suggested correction: This does not occur between two consecutive shots. There's a shot of Homer and Bart leaving the house in between those two shots, which provides sufficient time for Selma and Patty to cross their arms.

The Cartridge Family - S9-E5

TV Announcer: The Continental Soccer Association is coming to Springfield. It's all here: fast kicking, low scoring. And ties? You bet.
Bart: Hey Dad, how come you've never taken us to see a soccer game?
Homer: I don't know.
TV Announcer: You'll see all your favorite soccer stars. Like Arriaga, Arriaga II, Barriaga, Aruglia, and Pizzozza.
Homer: Oh, I've never heard of those people.
TV Announcer: And they'll all be signing autographs.
Homer: Woohoo!
TV Announcer: This match will determine once and for all which nation is the greatest on Earth. Mexico or Portugal.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
