Suggested correction: She may have put the bagel in her bag after taking a bite and then taken it out again right before she goes down the stairs into the subway. That's quite possible.

Continuity mistake: When Andy and Miranda are in the limo in Paris, they pull up to the curb and there is a bunch of press waiting as Miranda opens the door. However, when the shot changes, it is not the same group of people - in particular, there is a balding photographer who should be standing right there but is nowhere to be seen. It all happens too quickly for that much change.

Question: Can anyone please explain to me the deal about Nigel not getting a job in Paris? He thought he got promoted then Miranda picked someone else or something and he says something like 'when the time is right, she'll pay me back'.I've seen this film loads of times but I've never fully understood what happened. Thanks.


Chosen answer: Miranda was going to be replaced by Jaqueline and forced to retire. Miranda worked a deal to give Nigel's new job to Jaqueline instead. Since Jaqueline now has a job she wants, there is no one eager or qualified to replace Miranda. Miranda keeps her job. Nigel doesn't get a new job and must remain with Miranda. Miranda gets what she wants, Jaqueline gets what she wants, Nigel gets screwed, but maintains the (most likely futile) hope that Miranda will pay him back by some other means in due course.


Question: Did Andrea have sex with that blond guy?


Chosen answer: Yes, she slept with Christian (the blond guy).


Question: At the end when Miranda smiles in her limo after dismissing Andi's wave, what does this mean? Is she secretly proud of Andi for leaving? Is there director's commentary on this? Also, Andi giggles at Miranda's dismissal. Is it because she knows Miranda endorsed her?

Chosen answer: Miranda smiles because she is admitting to herself that she has come to like and respect Andi, who was unlike any assistant she'd ever had before. She did not want to let Andi see that. As she told Andi, she saw a lot of herself in her. Mirianda always is protecting her work image of being a powerful corporate leader, but once she is inside the taxi where Andi cannot see her, she lets her guard down. Andi smiles, as she often does, because she easily shrugs things off, but she can also see through Miranda's tough facade. Andi also appreciates that Miranda did support her.
