I did not think it was a coincidence or a continuity error, but more likely that either Charlie was lying or that these scenes were deliberately out of order.
There's also the other one people have pointed out, where he says he doesn't have a crystal ball, but there's one on his desk.
Charlie as unrelaible narrator is something that seems likely, and although maybe I had intuited it as a possibility, I've never fully considered that he was merely performing on the phone call. Interesting thought!
