# Goofs

#### Character error

Both Richard and his boss, who are in the book publishing industry, refer to "The Portrait of Dorian Gray". The title of the Oscar Wilde novel is "The Picture of Dorian Gray".
Richard explains that his finger is stuck in the Champagne bottle because the bubbles create a vacuum. Bubbles wouldn't create a vacuum and would in fact push his finger out of the bottle.

#### Continuity

When Richard is talking on the phone, he moves to the porch during his phone call. At first, the cord of the phone is seen coming around the corner through the doorway, but later disappears and eventually reappears.
In the scene where Richard opens the door for The Girl, at the time she forgot her front door keys, he gets out of the apartment to talk to her and look at her going upstairs. When he gets out the lights are on, but when he come back after he hurt his neck, the lights are off.
When Sherman gets his finger stuck in the champagne bottle it appears 1/4 full. After he gets his finger out and the girl pours a glass it is about 3/4 full.
The second time Richard trips over the roller-skate, it bends, but when he picks it up again, it appears unbent.

#### Incorrectly regarded as goofs

When Helen shoots Richard in his fantasy, seven shots are heard although the gun is a six shot revolver. Moreover, she enters the apartment by emptying the gun into the front door, yet she doesn't reload. Some of the bullet holes disappear between shots. Since this is Richard's fantasy, it need not conform to reality.
When Richard is reading the statistics in the doctor's manuscript, a stat is given that the seven year itch affects 84% of men in their 7th year of marriage. The next stat says that this number increases to 92% in the summertime. However, this makes no sense. If the stat is that 84% of men in their 7th year of marriage get the itch, then how can it change depending on the season? The logic does not follow.

#### Revealing mistakes

When Richard sets the coffee pot on the stove and turns on the gas, there is no flame, yet the pot is percolating when he returns to the kitchen minutes later.
