  • Homer's lips don't move when he says, "No burning leaves without a permit!"
  • Many people gathered in Ned's basement to discuss what to do about the wave of burglaries, however this would have caused their homes to be at an extremely high risk of being targeted/targeted again by The Cat Burglar (Molloy) as a burglar would be more likely to burglarize a house when it is vacant.
  • The Cat Burglar (Molloy) entered the Simpson home via the front door which is in plain view, however burglars will enter a house where they won't be seen such as the back door.
  • Bart's stamp collection and Selma's lock of MacGyver's hair, neither of which are valuable, were stolen by The Cat Burglar (Molloy), however, a burglar will only steal items that are valuable and can easily be sold.
