The Cable Guy

Audio problem: In the, "Midnight Express" Scene where Chip is talking to Steven on the phone, at one point Steven yells at the guards to arrest Chip because he was the one that framed him, after this Chip talks says on the phone quietly, "Hey Bernie, Hows that Sports Package" And Bernie gives him a thumbs up. Bernie was standing in the back of the room, without the phone and considering how quietly Chip said it there was no way that Bernie could have heard it. (01:09:40)

Continuity mistake: During the "Midnight Express" scene, Chip opens his shirt and presses his chest against the glass. The shot moves to Steven, and as we pan back to Chip, he is sitting, phone in hand, with his shirt buttoned. (01:09:05)
