Simpsons - Church on Monday?
In the episode where Bart falls for Jessica Lovejoy (the seemingly perfect Minister's daughter), you see him crossing off all the days on the calendar he feels he needs to survive to get over her.
He then says, "Alright, Day 1" and circles the first of the crossed off days. If you look carefully, you will see that the day he circled is actually a Monday. But then Marge comes in and tells him its time for Church.
Since when do they go to Church on Monday?

Many, many "slip-ups" in the Simpsons (or animation) happen because of the creators need for convenience, and IMHO are not true slip-ups. I believe this one may be considered a true slip-up. Yes, most churches have services on Monday, but we all know the Simpsons (like the majority of Christians) go on Sunday. Bart happened to mark his calendar (Monday), but the plot required him to interface with Jessica (at church), so they had to go there. And if this episode did not take place during the Summer, Bart, Lisa, and Jessica would have been in school on Monday, so it is clearly supposed to be a Sunday, despite Bart marking Monday on his calendar. As far as the Flanders things, this one was obviously an intentional joke. His kids are horrified that he won't be going to church, then he "adds" to his supposed conviction by declaring he will not be going "tomorrow". Well, since this is not required, how brave is he to declare such?

Just because its not Sunday, it doesn't mean you can't go to church.

Well nothing makes sense in Springfield. They have two mail delivery systems, two electricity sources (hydroelectric dam and nuclear plant), eight malls but no symphony, subdivisions with names like Crackton, Little Newark, and Army Proving Ground, a gallows, and church on Monday. And this is only the tip of the iceberg.

What can I say, Springfield is a weird town! What other town do you know that has 3 prisons, a big tire yard fire that's been burning since 1989, and every celebrity in Hollywood (even a few that aren't alive anymore, like Jimmy Stuart)has visited, and some are even buried in Springfield Cemetery next to scientists like Einstein! Also the people of Springfield are not the brightest, they might have forgotten about the other dam. Or maybe Mayor Quimby was bribed by the dam building company for their business!

Getting back to the original slip up here... Most/many churches will at least be open every day of the week so that people can go their for a number of reasons. Also, there are some churches that offer services on Monday nights so that people who work on the weekend can attend. As for all the other commentary here, it should be confined to a separate issue.

Excalibur_Z, it's possible that the Flanders usually go to church on Saturday. So, his family could have thought that he wanted to go on Sunday instead, until he said he wasn't going to go tomorrow. And Number8DaleJrFan, there are TWO schools called Springfield Elementary - remember the episode where Homer loses a thumb?

Most churches have at least one service every day; however, most people only go on Sunday because it is the only day required by God that we attend.

"Two electricity sources (hydroelectric dam and nuclear plant.)" Didn't they build the dam in the episode where Sideshow Bob gets out of jail (again), and at the end it falls apart?

A given town can certainly have more than one power plant and more than one dam, those are hardly slip-ups. My city dams the same river at no less than three different locations, for flood control; and the turbines on one of those dams does't make enough electricity for the area, so we have additional power plants. No biggie.

There was another dam before that. In the episode where Shelbyville steals the lemon tree, Grampa tells the story about Shelbyville. Right before the flashback sequence, it shows the nuclear plant and to the left, the dam. Also, when Homer fakes his death, his fake body goes through the turbines in the dam. This is even stranger. If there's already a dam, why build another?

Um, another damn episode(heeheehee), is when Lisa is protesting her right to vegitarianism and trying to make her father share her views. Later at Homeboy's bbq she releases the big "rump-roast" and sends it flying. Homer and Bart then persue the pig, while Homer keeps repeating " It's still good, It's still good," until finally it flies through the dam.

Remember the episode where Maude dies? A similar phrase was said by Ned. When Ned was angry at God for taking Maude away: "You kids go without me, I'm not going to church today" (Ned's kids gasp) "That's right, and I may not go tomorrow!" Just what kind of church do they run in Springfield? =)
