Towards the end of the episode, when Jane and Mr. Harrington are playing a board game and talking, in the mirror on the wall behind them, you see Rigsby adjust his suit jacket. Cut to Rigsby on the couch with the little girl and his arm is hanging straight out off the arm of the couch. Cut real quick back to Jane and you can see Rigsby still adjusting his suit jacket in the mirror messing with his jacket. See more »
