When Paul is running from the mob, he seeks shelter in the coffee shop and orders hamburger and coffee. The clock on the doorway shows 4:10. But when he is again running from the mob and goes there to meet Tom, the same clock shows 12:14 when the waiter brings him hamburger and coffee. Moments later, it says 5:00.
The closing credits are displayed over a moving shot of Paul's office, during which more and more employees show up for work. When the camera passes Paul's desk again, he has disappeared.
