Continuity mistake: When Mike grabs a lightsabre and shouts, "Ned, Ned, Ned, I'm telling you...stop it!...Now!" his arms are extended out with the lightsabre held aloft, and his tie hangs properly. It cuts to Ned turning on his lightsabre's glow effect, with Mike and his raised lightsabre in the foreground. In the next shot, as Mike's arms are still extended out, his tie is now dangling over his right arm. (00:19:35)
