After Mitch causes the explosion in the lab by using the mu mason projector, Sally and Dr. Noymann stand up in the next room and rush into the lab where Mitch lays prone on the floor. Sally passes through the door into the lab first. In the next shot from within the lab, Dr. Noymann is passing through the door first.
