Continuity mistake: When Cadet Major Morelan is talking to the officers in the Admin Building about a plan of action. He is constantly leaning agains the table and standing upright. When they finally agree on the plan of action, he says "agree?" he is standing upright and away from the table. The next shot the officers immediately respond and Cadet Major Morelan is leaning on the table with two fists then stand upright when he hears sirens. There was not enough time for Cadet Major Morelan to lean against the table again between the question and response.
