As the Japanese prisoner takes control of sick bay, Charlie the dog goes running out of the medical ward, which is located on the second deck (one deck below the hangar deck) of an aircraft carrier. A few moments later, he is shown hurdling "knee-knockers" as he runs down a passageway. The only area of a carrier that has passageways that look like this is the O-3 level, one deck below the flight deck. There is no way Charlie could have made it from the sick bay to the O-3 level in such a short amount of time, even with crew members holding open all the doors he'd need to go through.
