Corrected entry: When Sam Lowry first goes up to room 5001 he knocks lightly on the door and waits for a response. When the green light illuminates, he walks into the office where a woman is wearing headphones and typing. The headphones are loud as we discover later and she's been typing for some time as there are lots of lines of text. But how did she (the only person in that room) hear the door being knocked on?
Revealing mistake: When Lowry first arrives at Buttle's flat to return the cheque, he hears a cough and turns to see a man smoking a cigarette, half hidden by a column. When he blows a cloud of smoke it is easy to see that it comes from a tube next to his mouth. He isn't even exhaling at the time.
