  • Even though Maude Flanders died 190 episodes earlier in Alone Again, Natura-Diddily, she can be seen next to Ned, Rod and Todd when an overview of the crowd is seen.
  • Maude Flanders is seen crushing on Homer in high school, although a few episodes back teenager Homer and Marge were picked up by an adult Maude and Ned who were married.
  • Homer dived into the sauce, however it was boiling hot and therefore he would have been severely burned.
  • It is shown that Smithers was already working for Mr. Burns when Homer went to high school, meaning that he is older than Homer. However, in "The Blunder Years" it is shown that he was a baby when Homer was 12 years old. On the other hand, in a flashback of "Bye Bye Nerdie", it was shown that both were studying together at the same time.
  • During the school band scene in the intro, Jessica Lovejoy is not colored correctly. This was fixed in the following episode.
