Agent Lattimer would be reprimanded for buttoning his tuxedo, preventing access to his weapon while on presidential guard duty.
Even though the person entering through the doorway at the museum while "Hail to the Chief" is played is the President of the United States, the flag shown in the background is clearly the Malaysian flag, as indicated by the crescent moon and 14-pointed star.
When Pete first gets to the warehouse, he picks up the football in front of the door, and carries it past the support pillars. Later they pass it on the ground in front of the door again.

Artie says that the "University of Southern Iowa" is in Seever City. However, the location on the map that he draws in his office is in north central Iowa.
Pete: What about your folks? Myka: Colorado Springs. They own a bookstore called Bering and Sons. Pete: How many brothers? Myka: No brothers, just me. My dad thought the "and Sons" sounded classier. Pete: Well, he must be proud of you. Myka: Mom is. Pete: Well, did protecting the President of the United States turn him around? Myka: Yeah. This won't.\
Myka: So it says here to turn left at Buffalo station.
Peter: What? No, it's Buffalo Statue.
Myka: Well, your penmanship is atrocious.
Peter: I don't need wise... You know, that's, you know... Don't do that.
Myka: Can you finish the sentence? (pause) A full thought?
Peter: Uh, would you really like me to?
Artie: I'm thrilled you're on the team.
Myka: What team? What is this place?
Artie: Officially? K39 Triple Z on the North American grid. But I like to think of it as America's attic.
Myka: Got some ID?
Artie: No. We take the secret part seriously around here.
Pete: Look, Myka, why don't you pull your head out of your magenta and feel the room. Something's off.
Frederic: My name's Frederic.
Pete: Frederic what?
Frederic: Mrs. Frederic.
Pete: Well, that's a relief.
Pete: What's that?
Frederic: An invitation to endless wonder.
Pete: Okay, could you sound a little more creepy?
Artie: Come on. Come on inside. I'll show you around.
Myka: Around what? What am I doing here.
Artie: I'll explain everything inside. Come on. I made cookies.
Myka: Tell me exactly what I'm doing here.
Artie: Exactly? Well, that's a little dif... Well, to put it plainly, uh, you're joining me as fellow gatherers and protectors of secrets.
Myka: Put it plainer.
Pete: So, okay, who are these guys?
Artie: Former colleagues.
Pete: And.. and where are they now?
Artie: Well, um, this one and this one are dead. This one, a mental institution in Germany. And this last one disappeared. One day I'll find him.
Artie: And that is exactly what we do here. We take the unexplained.. and we just safely tuck it away in this super-sized Pandora's Box.
Pete: Metaphorically speaking.
Artie: Well, actually, Pandora's box is over in Aisle 989-B. Empty, of course.
Artie: You, uh, wished for a transfer, didn't you? Oh, see, impossible wishes, wishes that can never be granted, they produce a ferret. Don't ask me why. My first year here, the whole place was crawling with ferrets.
Pete: So may I make a suggestion?
Myka: What might that be, hmm?
Pete: Unbunch your panties and make the best of a bad situation.
Myka: And how do I do that?
Pete: Which part?
Myka: You're a freak.
Artie: But we could be dealing with a time slip.
Myka: Or a hangover.
Artie: Hey! Please take this seriously. I had a run-in with a Mayan calendar a few years ago, and that question saved my life. And the two agents with me were not quite so lucky.
Myka: What happened to them?
Artie: Their clocks... stopped.
Pete: So, what? They died?
Artie: Well, they'll wish they had in a 100 years or so.
