** When Homer tries to come up with an idea to attract more customers to Bowl-A-Rama, he's sitting over a table, reading books about marketting and staring at a bowling ball, until he finally seems to come up with a working idea: cue JumpCut to Homer wildly firing a shotgun into the air in front of the bowling alley while yelling at people to "get their bowling here", as described below.



'''Homer:''' Not on ''my'' shift! (''jumps into an overhead vent'').

Added DiffLines:

* NotMakingThisUpDisclaimer: Homer trying to attract customers by ''firing a shotgun into the air'' while yelling "Bowling! Get your bowling here!" actually happened, despite being outlandish enough for Lisa to consider it an embellishment of the story.

Added DiffLines:

** Marge and Homer are depicted as living in their house on Evergreen Terrace when Marge was pregnant with Bart, even though "I Married Marge" and "Lisa's First Word" had respectively shown that the two were still living with Marge's mother when Bart was born, and that they didn't move into Evergreen Terrace until shortly before Lisa's birth.
** Ruth Powers is one of the guests at Marge's baby shower, despite the fact that she didn't meet the Simpson family for the first time until she moved in near them, after Maggie's birth.
