Continuity mistake: When K hands the hair sample to the clerk at Wallace Corporation, the clerk puts down the note with the serial number for the replicant, and places it on the desk, with part of it positioned in front of the keyboard. From another angle, the note cannot be seen. This could not be due to the clerk's head blocking it, because the note was placed in front of the keyboard, and the keyboard is fully visible in shot with no note visible in front of it. (00:29:45)
