Seven Twenty Three - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Don is called to Bert Cooper's office to discuss Hilton coming into the office earlier that day and his (Don's) lack of a contract. Right after Don enters Bert's office, Bert asks, 'when were you going to tell us about this (Hilton)? ' and you can see the contract (with a blue cover) sitting on the table in front of Lane. There are several more shots of Lane and Roger as they discuss the contract, and it is sitting in the same spot on the table. But after Lane explains that Don must sign the contract, he pulls it from his jacket (not the table) and hands it to Don. (00:15:40 - 00:17:00)
