The Schizoid Man - S1-E5

Revealing mistake: While they ride toward the helicopter, Number 6 and Number 2 have a conversation. Shots of Number 6 are obviously outdoors under windy conditions: his hair is blowing. But every shot of Number 2 has been taken in-studio with a rear-screen projection. His hair isn't moving at all.

Trivia
