When Emily is sick Miranda calls it "an incubus of viral plague" an incubus is not a breeding ground or carrier of germs. It is, in general language, a burden. It had been an evil spirit who visited women at night to have intercourse or nightmare.

Errors in geography 

At 39:41 of the film, Andy is seen entering the Spring Street 6 train (subway) uptown on a train that says downtown only. Immediately after this in the same sequence she is exiting the 51 Street 6 train downtown stop. This would have been impossible on two fronts, since she would not be able to get uptown from Spring Street to 51st on a downtown train and furthermore surely would not have exited at the downtown stop at 51st street if coming from Spring.

At the end of the movie when Andy sees Miranda coming out of the building and getting into her car, Andy is walking on 49th street, traveling east from 7th avenue toward 6th avenue. In the next shot she is walking south on 6th avenue, crossing 50th street (Radio City Music Hall on the corner). She would have had to walk east on 49th street to 6th avenue, walk north on 6th avenue beyond 50th street and then turn around and walk back south.
