Homer vs. Patty and Selma - S6-E17

Continuity mistake: When Homer is walking upstairs after kicking Patty and Selma out for the second time, the wall that Homer was approaching is a darker colour than it usually is, and Homer walked up the stairs slowly. But a second later he closed a door, indicating that he went into a room. Are we really to believe that he could go very quickly from the stairs to a room in a matter of seconds?

A Star is Burns - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Wolfcastle says that 'Jay Sherman insulted him, now he will die', for a few shots the shadows are on the floor before they magically disappear. Also, the shadow of the gun does not match the real gun.

A Star is Burns - S6-E18

A Star is Burns - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When everybody is chanting 'Film Festival', you can see that Mayor Quimby has his arm up. But in the next shot, which changes so that you can see Marge, he his holding up his other arm.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When wedding has been just called off, Lunch Lady Doris calls everyone for wedding cake, and among people who rush to it we can see Moe (you can recognize him by his eyepatch), then, Lisa starts to walk off and among the people she passes by you can see both Lunch Lady Doris and Moe.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Revealing mistake: By the end, when fortune teller lays "The Fiance" card on the table, it instantly makes the same angle as other cards lying there, even though the teller's hand is still under it. It doesn't change the angle when she removes her hand from under it, as though it's floating in the mid-air all the time.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: By the vending machine, Lisa first points her card at the cell on the right, then there's a zoom on the cells and we see her hand starting to point again, but this time at the cell in the middle. In the next shot, she lowers her hand with the card, which however in this shot is pointing at the cell on the right again.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When we first see union flag on fire, the flames are already consuming over the half of its upper edge. Then when we see it reflected in Hugh's eyes, no more than a half of the edge is burning.

Lisa's Wedding - S6-E19

Continuity mistake: When Lisa enters the taxi and we see the door being closed, the camera turns into the full view of the taxi in the next shot, and now we see that the door (the one with company logo on it) has changed its shape between shots.

The PTA Disbands - S6-E21

Plot hole: When Bart locks Principal Skinner and Mrs Krabappel in Skinner's office, and tells them that they can't come out until they've reached an agreement, why didn't Skinner and Krabappel just climb out Skinner's office window instead of spending hours pounding on the door yelling to be let out?

The PTA Disbands - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: While Bart is being beaten up by Nelson and Jimbo, Nelson is on the right side and Jimbo is on the left side. In the close up shot, you can see from their arms that Nelson and Jimbo have switched sides.
