Goofs

When Tom is talking to Liz on his mobile phone, we can see that the screen is lit up (it appears to be the home screen, not the phone screen). This is impossible, because smartphones have a proximity sensor that blanks the screen when the phone is held to your ear, to prevent accidental activation of the keypad if it touches your cheek.
