Margical History Tour - S15-E11

Factual error: On the castle where King Henry VIII is supposed to live, the flags at the top have the pattern of the English flag, being a + shaped cross on a coloured background, but it should be a red cross on a white background. Instead it's a white cross on a blue background. Those are the colours of the Scottish flag, but England and Scotland were separate countries at that point in history. And the cross on the Scottish flag is an X shape rather than a + shape anyway.

Tree House of Horror X - S11-E4

[The Simpsons are driving down a road as fast as possible.]
Homer: Dear God, it's Homer. If you really love me you'll save my life now.
[The gas needle immediately drops to empty and the car stops.]
Homer: D'oh.

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

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.
