    • Porsche 911

  • Becky without her lipstick

    Otto doesn't seem to have suffer any burns after being on fire and his clothes stay intact. ( It is possible that network censors would not allow horrible burns to be shown on the show.)
  • How did the police know Marge will show up at home?
  • In the last scene of the second act, as Marge is being arrested after confronting Becky, Becky isn't wearing lipstick.
  • The classroom with pink walls

    When Mrs. Krabappel's classroom is first seen, the walls are pink instead of green.

  • Patty’s dress sometimes changes from short sleeves to sleeveless, then short sleeves when Marge visits her sisters.
  • One of the doctors at the insanity hearing is supposed to be the therapist who helped subdue Ned Flanders when he was an out-of-control child. However, he's drawn as he looked as a young man and Ned was a child, not as he did when Ned was an adult.
  • Lisa was voluntarily offering Moe shrimp when he was leaving the wedding. Despite that when she became a vegetarian she tried to stop others from eating meat and even ruining Homer’s barbecue.
    • However, in that episode she ended up apologizing for her actions, so she may have decided to respect others' eating habits even if she doesn't approve of them personally.
  • As Krusty puts his coffee mug down, the mug disappears for a frame.
