Goofs
(At 02.40) There is a half inch of tape on the take up spool on the tape recorder. Philip asks Bob to type up what he had just recorded. Bob proceeds to remove the take-up spool (should have been the full, left-hand spool) which suddenly has no tape on it, and takes it into his office "to listen to it".
