Continuity mistake: Shortly before Sol's death, Thorn rushes into the suicide center and talks to him from the control room above. When Sol pleads Thorn to listen, there's interference on the intercom.

Continuity mistake: The doors to the suicide center are frosted opaque from the outside, but clear when seen from the inside. (01:10:10)


State Security Chief Donovan: Do you have the words straight?
