Andy's Ancestry - S9-E3

New this month Continuity mistake: Nellie and Pam are driving along, discussing what to make up about people's ancestry. Here, we see the same background go past Pam, a driveway with a black SUV on the right, and a white SUV on the left. This shot is only repeated in the angle where we can only see Pam, and the view out of the passenger side window. The car is driving along as normal, we see the two cars on the driveway, and then the car turns a corner, and we see the same shot all over again.

Survivor Man - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In "The Alliance" (1-4), Pam says that the next office birthday is Meredith's, but it isn't until the next month. Later, in "Survivor Man", it is said that Meredith's birthday is at the end of 'Birthday Month', when many employees have birthdays close together. It wouldn't be possible for Meredith's birthday to both be the next office birthday but also at the end of the following month, which is stated to have many other birthdays in it.

The Delivery: Part 1 - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: In 4-14 "Goodbye, Toby", Andy Bernard invites his parents to the going-away party for Toby Flenderson and introduces them as "Andrew and Ellen Bernard". But in this episode Andy tells Jim that he was originally named "Walter Jr." after his father and that it was changed when his little brother was born and the name Andrew was one that they got out of a baby-naming book.

Secretary's Day - S6-E21

Continuity mistake: Andy states that he has a step-mother who is/was a secretary, but in all other references to Andy's father's wife she is Andy's biological mother.

Safety Training - S3-E19

Character mistake: Darryl says the warehouse has never gone a full year without an injury. However, previously in "Boys and Girls" a board is shown giving the number of days without an accident as over a year.

Customer Loyalty - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, we are shown a video of Dwight getting splashed with the milkshake from the point of view of the guys in the car. But it splashes differently the two times we see it. The first time it hits his lower body, and on the video, it hits him in his upper body.

The Whale - S9-E7

Plot hole: When Wallace calls, Dwight asks why Wallace would call when the manager is out of town. In a later episode, Wallace claims to be ignorant of Andy leaving Scranton.

The Sting - S7-E5

Continuity mistake: In this episode Michael can't ride a bike. But in episode 3-10, Michael was seen riding a bike with no problems.

The Banker - S6-E13

Continuity mistake: After the banker asks Toby if there is any inappropriate behavior, a few seconds later there is a flash back of Season 3 Ep. 22 when it is the beach games and Michael is hosting a hot-dog eating contest. Michael says to Phyllis to "Dip it in the water so it'll slide down - your gullet more easily." In the flashback version, everyone says "That's what she said." In the real version, no one says anything. Not to mention Toby wasn't actually at the beach day, Michael told Toby to stay because "Someone needs to stay at the office."

The Boat - S9-E6

Revealing mistake: When Oscar is talking to the camera crew, and Kevin appears with his ice-cream falling, you can see his thumb having pushed the ice-cream scoop off the cone.

Traveling Salesmen - S3-E12

Continuity mistake: When Michael is having 'Harvey the talking computer' talk to Pam and Jim, the screen of Michael's computer is shown several times. At a few points you can see that Harvey's comments have already been typed out in full long before he said them to Pam/Michael typed them up.

The Fire - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: After everyone but Dwight and Kelly exit the building (because of the fire), Dwight picks up the water jug and accidentally knocks over the blue cups next to it. A few cups fall to the floor but one remains still on the printer (next to where the jug was). After Dwight gets Kelly out of the kitchen, the blue cup has disappeared from the printer.

Last Day in Florida - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: Toby competes with Darryl to sell Girl Scout cookies. Toby says it's his daughter's first year selling them. However, earlier in the series, Toby agrees to sign Dwight's apology letter from corporate if he buys cookies from his daughter.

Diversity Day - S1-E2

Continuity mistake: When they're having the Diversity Day meeting Jim's chair can be seen over Michael's shoulder several times. In the beginning of the meeting the chair is pointed towards his desk, but when Kevin says that he remembers the Chris Rock routine and begins to recite it, you can now see that the chair is pointed towards Pam's desk; however no one has left the meeting in that time. (The only person who's not in the meeting is Devon. He was at his desk and walking around a few times but it makes no sense that he would go and move Jim's chair.) It's obvious that the actor left the chair in different positions during different takes.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: While Michael is introducing Ryan to Dwight and the stapler-in-jello is found, we see that Phyllis' chair is empty. Then a moment later there's a shot of her looking at Jim while sitting in her chair with no time to get there. And then the chair's empty when shown again.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jan, Michael and Pam are having a meeting in Michael's office they're sitting against the front window, but during that scene when it shows Jim and Dwight talking at their desks, if you look over Jim's shoulder you'll see that the office behind them is empty.

Sex Ed - S7-E4

Character mistake: Carol says that Michael proposed to her on their fourth date. The proposal happened in Season 3, Episode 6, Diwali, and in that episode, Carol mentioned that it was their ninth date.

Lecture Circuit: Part 2 - S5-E15

Continuity mistake: When Jim and Dwight are talking about the activities for Kelly's party, Dwight is attempting (horribly) to blow up a silver balloon. Just after Jim finishes reading the list of proposed activities, Dwight says, "You're right, forget horse hunting, it's stupid." Immediately after he says this, the shot changes and he is now holding a brown balloon.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: Episode 4 Season 1 "The Alliance" Dwight is hiding in a box in the basement when Pam comes down to the basement and pretends to make a secretive phone call. As she does so the box that Dwight is hiding in changes position on the floor, presumably so that the camera can catch the holes that Dwight has made in the box in order to breathe.

Viewing Party - S7-E8

Character mistake: In the scene where Ryan and Andy are taking a tour of Gabe's bedroom, Ryan says "Hey, Marantz tube stereo from the 1970s" It is in fact a Marantz SR 1000 stereo receiver. This model uses solid state electronics, not vacuum tubes.

Quotes

Michael Scott: Last week I would've given a kidney to anyone in this office. I would've reached right into my stomach and pulled it out for them. But now, no. I don't have the relationship with these people that I thought I did. I hope they ask, so they can hear me say, "Uh, no, I only give my organs to my real friends. Go get yourself a monkey kidney."
