After the funeral, when the waiter brings the ladies drinks, he sets down a vodka during "just fine, couldn't be better" (Brenda's drink is already on the table). In the next shot, he finishes placing Brenda's drink, then the vodka, then reaches for Annie's. The next shot shows that Annie magically has a drink and the waiter is gone.

When Duarto Feliz goes to Morty and Shelly's apartment, they make a big deal out of hiding an offensive chair by covering it with Duarto's long coat. At the end of the scene, there are several shots with him suddenly wearing it again.
