Homie the Clown - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: Just before Homer (dressed as Krusty) is picked up by Officer Wiggum, his car is brightly painted and has wobbly clown wheels. When he pulls over it's back to the ordinary dented purple car he usually drives.

Homie the Clown - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: In the last scene when Homer is about to attempt the loop trick, it is seen several times that the Mafia guys are not standing in a straight line. In all shots they are except the one where Homer fails, and then says "Ta da,". The Mafia are shown head to head in a straight line.

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psychology.
Homer: Reverse psychology? That sounds too complicated.
Homer's brain: Alright, don't use reverse psychology.
Homer: Alright, I will!

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.
