The Firm

Plot hole: In Cayman, Abby drugs Avery's drink at dinner. It takes effect as they return to the bungalow, and Avery passes out on the foot of the bed, fully clothed. In the next shot, Abby is in the kitchen, carrying the Mafia files. The bedroom is seen in the background, only now Avery is under the covers and without a shirt. After being knocked out by a "Mickey Finn," he wouldn't wake up, undress, and get into bed. Nor would Abby be able to do this - he is too heavy and bulky for her to move and undress alone, plus she would not have enough time to do that and also transport the many files, get them copied, and return them to the bungalow before Avery awoke. Avery would also be suspicious, knowing he was ill and had passed out atop the bed, but awoke undressed under the covers.
