Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: There are two problems with Lisa's Indian burns. When we first see them, she has 4 burns. Then, while she is showing them to the bullies, there are 3, then 4 again. Then, in the very next scene when she is walking with Nelson in the schoolyard, they are gone altogether.

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: When Lisa is watching tapes of Francine's bullying, there is a scene where they are at the pool. Francine is wearing nose clips in this scene. But when Lisa freeze-frames and leans in to closer inspect the shot, Francine's face is shown on the screen without nose clips. They appear again when Lisa exclaims "Of course. The nose clips."

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Continuity mistake: When Marge is racing the school bus, as the bus jumps out of the ditch you can see that the bottom of the bus is painted to resemble a skateboard. When the bus lands from this jump, however, the bottom of the bus is an even grey colour.

Bye Bye Nerdy - S12-E16

Audio problem: In the scene where Lisa is presenting her bully repellant at the 'Big Science Thing', when she first walks onstage there are murmurs of disapproval among the scientists, in which you can hear one of them saying, "Let's not listen". But after Lisa sprays the repellant on herself and stops Francine in her tracks, the scientists start murmuring in astonishment. However, if you listen closely, you'll hear the same recording of someone saying, "Let's not listen".

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.
