When Bud and Lou first meet/search the two Police detectives Costello searches the Police Lt and feels his badge. He screams, yells out 'RING' and tricks the detective into answering the phone giving them time to escape. Abbott runs and exits the door with Costello close BEHIND him. In the very next scene from outside in the hallway the Camera shot shows Costello exiting the door in FRONT of Abbott. See more
