Simpsons - Time Sure Flies By!
This is on the episode where Homer grabs the Venus De Milo off of the babysitter.
When Homer goes to the Rock Bottom studio, there is a clock behind him, and the hands of the clock don't move for the whold time that he's there. When he watches it on tv, it goes back and forth from one hour to another. I didn't think that he stayed that long!!!!

Homer's actual speech lasted less than a minute. This thing with switching clock times was intentional but they messed it up. Good job finding this!

They made the clock move on purpose, it was to show an obvious time tampering in the film, the makers of the show wanted the audience to understand clearly what was going on.

Heh- they should have given the clock a second hand so it could move around like mad instead of having to use "dramatic/artistic liscense" (I hate those terms! They might as well have everyone turn into tap-dancing pink chimpanzees and call it "dramatic/artistic liscense".)

Yes, but the point is the interview didn't last long enough for the clock hands to have moved so far in the course of the interview. The clock hands should stay the same because Homer was only speaking for a few seconds.

The whole point of that scene, including the point where Homer 'attacks' the host, is th display how blatantly unscrupulous the producers were. Homer's speech is clearly edited or 'cut & pasted', and the clock is there to make this all the more obvious. If that clock *wasn't* there, the scene would have worked only half as well!

Here is the explanation... This is VERY complicated. 1. Homer has the interview. It is very short, as you said. 2. They edited Homer's interview, and the moving clock illustrated different times of the interview. 3. You might notice how they used different parts if you know what he REALLY said. IE: Sweet can - instead of sweet candy Hope you understand!!!
