Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: In the end of the episode when the family has reclaimed the house and are cleaning up the living room. As Homer mentions about letting the Cooders stay, Bart tells Marge to get him away from the window. She is standing right next to the couch in the lounge but the very next shot she lowers her hands and pats the couch yet is now in the family room. (Note: There was a few shots that showed there was two couches so the mistake is with Marge suddenly moving not the couch.).

Bart Carny - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At dinner when the carny dad is doing his cigarette trick, the shot changes to Bart and Lisa and they have piles of food on their plates. About 10 seconds later Marge gathers the plates up and there is nothing on them. Are we to believe that they ate all this food in such a short space of time?

Continuity mistake: Up until the point at which Skinner starts throwing rings at the block in front of the Spanish lamp, the block simply doesn't exist. It only appears once he starts throwing the rings.

Factual error: Sharks cannot just reverse backwards like that one did under the glass bottom boat. The only way sharks can go backwards is either swimming around in a circle or allowing the current to carry them.

Continuity mistake: When Homer is talking through the door to Cooder about getting the house back, the shot is through the fisheye lens on the door and you can see Marge, Bart and Lisa smiling. The very next shot, they suddenly have a frown in no available time.

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.
