Launch Party - S4-E3

Continuity mistake: In 2-13 "The Secret" Pam and Jim are talking about how Jim used to have a crush on Pam when she first started here. This implies that Jim was working here when Pam was hired. However, in this episode Pam says that when Jim first started working there she said, "Enjoy this moment, because you're never going to go back to this time before you met your desk-mate, Dwight." These two scenes contradict each other.

New this month Suggested correction: The actual line was he had a crush on her when he first started working here.

No, the mistake is correct. On the booze cruise Jim told Michael he use to have a thing for Pam. Then in "The Secret", Jim tells Pam directly "I told Michael that I had had a crush on you when you first started here."

When she's engaged to Andy and they're touring Dwight's farm he mentions she has multiple sisters. In the finale she only has one sister and apparently they are incredibly close.

But in 6-16 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. Additionally, in 8-4 "Garden Party", Dwight is introducing the entering guests. When Andy's parents arrive, Dwight says, "Mr. And Mrs. Walter and Ellen Bernard."

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 Manager and the Salesman - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Michael enters the room he messes with Jim's hair and Jim's hair is noticeably different, however a few different camera angles later Jim's hair is back to normal even though he couldn't have possibly had time to touch it.

00:09:10 - 00:09:50

Hot Girl - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Michael takes Katy (the purse lady) around the office, she worries about leaving her purses unguarded so while walking by Phyllis and Stanley's desk clump he asks Ryan to look after the purses, but Ryan says he can't because he's "installing File-Share on all the computers." Phyllis is noticeably absent from the shot. Ryan is sitting at Phyllis' desk. Michael and Katy take a few steps and walk into the kitchen area. In the background we can now see that Phyllis is now sitting at her desks and Ryan is nowhere in sight. There wasn't enough time for both to switch locations like that as only a moment had passed between the shots.

00:06:10

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.

00:06:30

Tallahassee - S8-E15

Continuity mistake: Stanley can be heard as part of The Office yelling at Andy to pick up the phone, when he is supposed to be located in Tallahassee on the business trip.

00:05:30

Show generally

Continuity mistake: During season 1, specifically episode six, it is shown that the show is filmed in a real office building. The windows we see in Michael's office and the conference room match the exterior windows as they all walk to their cars at the end of the episode. However from season 2 onwards the office is at ‘1725 Slough Avenue', featuring the building everyone's familiar with. However if you look at the windows on this building they do not at all match the set interior, they even have vertical blinds that are visible. A large set error they ignored when moving to the replica set.

The Deposition - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: When the Dunder Mifflin lawyer says "she thought it had to do with her recent breast enhancement surgery," the woman on the right side of the screen has her hand on her forehead. Then the shot changes angles and the woman's hand is now resting on her chin.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: In the first episode, where Dwight is talking to Michael and Ryan, when he gets the Jello out and gets angry at Jim, look at Jim when they keep going back and forth to him. In some shots he has a Jello cup and spoon in his hand, and sometimes he does not.

00:14:45

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.

00:15:25

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.

Andy's Ancestry - S9-E3

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.

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.

The Alliance - S1-E4

Continuity mistake: 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.

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.

00:04:20

St. Patrick's Day - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Jim reveals the tiny desk underneath his "Quad-Desk" to Dwight, Dwight sets his briefcase down on a chair not shown in any previous shot.

After she tosses the ball up Michael hits the ball mid-air over to Stanley who is now about 10-15 feet in front of Pam, with no time to logically get there between shots.

00:13:15

Double Date - S6-E8

Moroccan Christmas - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Meredith's hair catches fire, we never see her face (as it's a stunt double). After Dwight uses the fire extinguisher on her, the shot cuts (although she is still in the frame) and her hair is different, as it is now the original actor that plays Meredith.

00:05:50

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.

00:06:00 - 00:07:05

Branch Wars - S4-E6

Continuity mistake: Earlier in the show we see Michael trying to get Jim to go on a "sale" to crush Utica by pumping him up in the conference room and when he turns to leave he sees Toby in an orange bow tie for the meeting of the Finer Things Club but later in the episode we see Toby wearing a greenish/brown tie.

00:07:00 - 00:11:00
