The Paper

Continuity mistake: During the scene with everyone in Henry Hackett's office (prior to the gunshot), the pad of paper that Carmen is holding jumps from one hand to the other and back again.

Continuity mistake: When Carmen and Wilder are arguing in Henry's office, Carmen's badge keeps flipping from front to back a couple times, without her touching it, sometimes between shots.
