Stan: Cartman, you dumbass! That's not how it happened!
Kyle: Yeah, dude! Kenny just died eight hours ago from that monster; how could he have died back then too?
Cartman: Huh, I guess that ''doesn't'' make any sense...

Park Manager: Here at Itchy and Scratchy Land, we're just as concerned with violence as you are. That's why we're always careful to show the consequences of deadly mayhem, so that we may educate as well as horrify.
Marge: When do you show the consequences? On TV, that mouse pulled out that cat's lungs and played them like a bagpipe, but in the next scene, the cat was breathing comfortably.
The Simpsons, "Itchy and Scratchy Land"

"If this were a DS9 episode, you could have headed back into the series' rich mythology and shown how these characters have changed over the years, but unfortunately the crew of Voyager look and act exactly the same way now as they did in Caretaker...It doesn’t help that the former Maquis commander is the dullest character to have emerged from this series and plods through history with about as much personality as a mouldy old carrot."
Joe Ford on Star Trek: Voyager ("Shattered")

That's sounds incredibly stupid doesn't it? That's probably what you're thinking. That
would be incredibly stupid. It would almost be as incredibly stupid as the King of Hyrule passionately telling the children at the end of The Wind Waker that their new land won't be called Hyrule, because he wanted the past washed away.

And then, within a few years, they discover a new continent. Guess what they call it."

"It's kinda funny; it doesn't even take weeks to contradict themselves. It's immediate. Abyss breaking a board and then 5 min later—not even a commercial break later—he's got a new stick. He's got spares, I dunno. He must have a golf bag full of these things."
Noah Antwiler on TNA iMPACT 8.26.10

Spoony's "explanation" of Doctor Insano's Multiple-Choice Past.

"If something explodes in one episode, in the next episode, it is rebuilt, it is beautiful, right where it used to be, with no indication that it ever exploded."
Alex Hirsch tell it like it isnote 

"Very little on Drawn Together can be considered canon. If you try to find continuity on this show you'll drive yourself nuts. The only thing that's consistent is we try to make the show as funny as possible. And we'd never let a little thing like continuity get in the way of that."
Bill Freiberger, Executive Producer
