Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where Lowry is in his new office in Information Retrieval and discovers that he shares a desk with Harvey Lime next door, watch as the camera dollies after Sam into Lime's office: first the camera wobbles as it grazes the door, then later in the scene as the camera moves in further, it bumps audibly to a halt against the edge of the desk, complete with a muffled exclamation by the camera operator.
Sam escapes, brings down the Ministry, and lives happily ever after with Jill. But then it is revealed that his escape was all a dream. But only in the director's cut--sometimes the movie ends with the happy ending on broadcast television--Terry Gilliam fought this version of the film, but some copies are still out there floating around.
Mr. Warrenn: What is this mess? An empty desk is an efficient desk.
