Continuity mistake: When Sam first enters Jack Lint's office, Jack is at the sink massaging his scalp. There is blood in the water in the sink. After Sam says "Excuse me!" a couple of times, Jack turns around, revealing that the front of his white jacket is clean.

Question: What is the relevence of the time 8:49pm that appears at the start of the film?
