The Office

Lotto - S8-E3

Stupidity: Oscar, Dwight, Jim, Erin, Kelly and Kevin are worried about a dog that have been left in a car, and that the dog will die. After some discussion, Oscar ultimately decides to smash the rear-driver's windows in order to give the dog some fresh air, yet there would be no point in doing this as the sun-roof is open, that's how Dwight pours milkshake into the car. (00:00:30 - 00:01:00)

Suggested correction: Characters making bad decisions aren't stupidities. In fact, there were a lot of stupid choices the group made in that scene. Oscar was simply overly concerned and felt the window needed to be smashed. They simply didn't think an open sunroof was enough to allow air to circulate in the car (since air usually blows across, like into an open window, and not down). Plus Oscar smashes the taillight for good measure, so he may have just wanted to teach the owner a lesson. The group completes their bad decision making by putting cardboard over the broken window with a few holes punched in it, which wouldn't really help if they were that concerned it would get so hot.

Suggested correction: That was part of the joke. They were all so concerned about the dog being left in the car that they failed to notice the sunroof. By the time they had noticed, they were so caught up in it all that they didn't mention the fact.

Mistakes

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.
