The Heartbroke Kid - S16-E17

Revealing mistake: In the opening sequence's parody of the series where Bart becomes fat and comes out from school on his skateboard, he theoretically should go down the stairs, instead his silhouette suddenly climbs up on the wall next to him, revealing a mistake in the post-production's animation. (00:06:05)

A Star Is Torn - S16-E18

Continuity mistake: After Lisa finishes singing her song during the audition, there are several coloring mistakes in the shot of the audience clapping. Agnes Skinner's face is ghost white, but her hands are yellow. Mayor Quimby's suit is lavender instead of violet/blue, and his hair is light brown instead of medium brown. Helen Lovejoy has blonde hair instead of grey, and is wearing a purple shirt instead of pink sweater over blue shirt, and Reverend Lovejoy has a green shirt instead of pink, and has brown hair instead of black.

Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer rings the doorbell of the Flanders' former house to visit the new neighbour, it moves downwards on the door frame. In the first shot it lines up with the gap between the lock and the doorknob, but in the next shot it is beside the doorknob, and in other shots in the episode the doorbell isn't even there. Also, the glass panels on both sidelights line up with the door differently between shots.

Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: As the Simpsons are in the cinema watching "Kosovo Autumn" you can see there is a seat next to Homer to the right of screen. When Homer starts complaining about the film but cannot leave because he is stuck in his seat, the shot changes and we see him from behind however the seat that was next to him has disappeared.

Home Away From Homer - S16-E20

Continuity mistake: When Homer tries to leave his seat in the cinema and complains about eating the apple, the shot shows his body fat has wedged him in the seat. However we can see from all the shots before this that the fat was never wedged in like it was when he was trying to leave.

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.

Answer: Willy referred to an encounter he believed he had with actual aliens, while Wiggum thought he was referring to the arcade game.

Answer: The joke is that Willie was so addicted to Space Invaders that he believed it was reality: every time he played, he was actually defending the Earth from dangerous aliens. It's a surprise to him that it was actually a game.
