The Office

Business Ethics - S5-E2

Character mistake: Meredith admits during the ethics seminar that she has been sleeping with Bruce, the HammerMill rep, for discounts on paper/paper supplies for the company, as well as Outback steak coupons, for 6 years. But, Dunder Mifflin did not begin selling Hammer Mill products until Season 3 Episode 2 The Convention when Michael got the contract.

Suggested correction: Michael didn't establish the contract with Hammer-mill. Rather, he locked them up as an exclusive supplier. It's unknown if they were already selling the products to Dunder Mifflin alongside Staples and Office Max.

Wrong, Josh says they cannot sell Hammer-mill products as they are exclusive to Staples so therefore they wouldn't have been able to sell there products alongside as mentioned before until Michael made them an exclusive to them solely, Dunder Mifflin. Therefore the original mistake stands true.

The contract Michael negotiated could have timed out, and therefore Hammer-mill could have been sold by competing companies. Then Meredith's deal could have given the office a leg up on the competition during this time.

Meredith was "working" to get discounts for supplies around the Dunder Mifflin office. Michael made a deal to allow Dunder Mifflin to sell Hammermill products.

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.

Suit Warehouse - S9-E11

Character mistake: Erin is shown drinking an espresso in 5-25 "Café Disco". Later in the series in this episode, when Clark brings an espresso machine in that was given to him by Jan, everyone decides to try every flavor. In an interview Erin starts rambling but then remember the actual question she was asked, have you ever had an espresso before, she said she had not.

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. (00:13:30)
