That's not the way I remember the goof up. Mel's character was lying face down, with his pants down. When he sat up, his pants we suddenly all the way up, then, when Goldie Hawns character saw then embracing and ran away, Mel's character got off the table and was pulling up his pants.

I read somewhere shortly after this movie came out that Mel Gibson had a "butt double" for this scene of the movie. That slip-up sounds like they didn't coordinate Mel Gibson's scene with the one of the person standing in as his butt double.
