Goofs
Nick and Darcy are discussing the sketches of the runner for the Nike project. Nick is making notes as Darcy is holding the ad workup card straight out in front of her. She hugs the card to her chest then with one hand, drops it to her side and in the next shot she has it back up in front of her, holding it with both hands again.

When Nick is standing in the middle of the department store, the long shot shows that the tiles on the ground under Nick's feet are the same light color as the rest of the floor. In the overhead shot, Nick is shown standing in the middle of a large dark colored star-shaped tile feature. The star-shaped tile feature is not visible in the long shot.

Q
Why doesn't Nick hear his assistants Eve and Margo's inner thoughts?
A
It's just a simple joke that they don't think. That they're simple-minded women.
