Victor and Elizabeth are drying off. When Victor begins to lose his voice, he is holding a wig in a box in his right hand and puts his left hand towards his own throat. In the next shot, made out to be in real time, his right hand is immediately where his left hand was; what's more - it is without the wig in a box.
