Tree House of Horror XII - S13-E1

Audio problem: In Reaper Madness; the scene where Homer destroys the Grim Reaper with a bowling ball, Bart is pinned on the wall by the Reaper's scythe. The scythe disappears and Bart says "Cool!" but his mouth just opens up and doesn't match the word.

Continuity mistake: In "Wiz Kids", Bart stabs Montymort in his shin which is open (i.e. not covered by what he's wearing). Only a little blood pours out. Then Monty raises his shin into shot and there is not only a puncture in the leg of his clothing, but the wound is covered in blood. When he falls, and Slithers eats him moments later, there is no damage at all. (00:19:55)

Homer's brain: It's simple, just use reverse psychology.
Homer: Reverse psychology? That sounds too complicated.

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.
