Goofs

During Schmidt and Cece's conversation about her dating Mark-Paul Gosselaar, at one point (from a camera angle behind her head) she leans in to place her ear on the door and listen. When the camera cuts to show her from the front, she's nowhere near the door. Then when it cuts back, she's leaning on the door again. This goes back and forth multiple times, with her position changing every time the angle changes. See more »
