In the opening scene, JD is using Keith to pick up girls. As five girls walk by his table, JD says an "impressive fact" about himself to each girl. The third girl (red top, dark hair) passes past JD and we see her walking behind girl #2 to the door. The shot cuts to the fourth girl (blue top) and then back to the girls walking to the door. Girl #3 is just passing by JD again instead of girl #4. Also, while girls #1-4 all exit the bar to the left, girl #5 who was with the other group to begin with exits to the right - potential bathroom break, but she didn't say anything to the others as they were headed out and one of them would have gone with her.
