Character error 

Data is summarizing the Comic's joke about Thomas P. 'Tip' O'Neill and the briefcase that looks like a fish by stating, "So the juxtaposition of gender and an amphibian briefcase..." Data should know the difference between fish and amphibians.

Okona asks if he heard a woman's voice, and talks lecherously about women, but says nothing about Troi, even though she is plainly visible on the bridge.

When Capt. Okona asks where "806" is (Lt. Robinson's quarters), Data points out a nearby door. But after Okona enters, the door closes and the room number "08 0669" is shown.

In the conference room during the discussion of Okona's fate, we see a round wall decoration behind Captain Picard and Counselor Troi. When Okona leads Yannar to the opposite side of the room to discuss her decision, we see the same decoration on the wall behind them. Later in the same scene, the decoration re-appears behind Picard and Troi.

Revealing mistakes 

It's well established that the Holodeck exit only appears when explicitly requested. However, when Data and Guinan exit at the end the exit sound effect occurs without either character requesting it.
