Continuity mistake: In close-up, the brainwashed Illya holds the Luger at an angle, close to his face. But when the shot cuts, he's suddenly holding it straight and much lower, level with his chest. Next close-up, it's back in the original position again. (00:40:10)

Continuity mistake: Solo leaps from a roof, appears to get shot, and lands on his back with his tie flipped up over his face and his coat hiked up.

The Neptune Affair - S1-E11

Question: Why would Solo compare the descending elevator to an Eaton's department store, when these only existed in Canada?

Answer: He must have ridden in an Eaton's store elevator while he was in Canada at some point. For some reason, this elevator reminds him of it. The show's original concept had Solo being a Canadian, so this may be a minor nod to that fact.
