Continuity mistake: In the shot where Kearney is reading the letter sent by Marge whilst he is eating the jellybean cookies, there is a quick shot of Kearney's hand going to his mouth with the cookie to eat it. Note that there is nothing on his wrist. In the next shot where it is revealed that Kearney is reading the letter rather than Bart or Lisa, he has spiky, black collars on his wrist. (00:14:25)
Continuity mistake: Homer points out to Marge that now that the kids are away, he has grown two more hairs, making it four on the top of his head. Later when they are reading Lisa's letter, he has two hairs again. But later still when they are watching TV, he has four again. Two of them fall out when he see that Bart is the ringleader, leaving him with his original two.
