Money - S4-E4

Other mistake: Michael states that he and Jan have traded in their two cars for a Porsche (for her) however from earlier episodes we know that Michael's Sebring is a corporate lease.

Upvote valid corrections to help move entries into the corrections section.

Suggested correction: He's only saying it's a corporate lease to egg Dwight on cause he tricked him into thinking he got the manager position over Michael when Dwight tells Jan he could run the branch better in the waffle house, but right after screams "That's my car!" several times.

When he hit Meredith with his car he started it was a corporate lease again though.

Yes, he tells Ryan the accident occurred on company property, with company property so... Double Jeopardy they are fine. To which Ryan says, I don't think you understand how jeopardy works.

Traveling Salesmen - S3-E12

Other mistake: When Michael is playing with "Harvey" the computer, it says whatever he types. When we briefly see the computer screen, the entire dialog for the scene is already typed out, in spite of it including text that hasn't been said yet and that Michael wouldn't know Harvey would say (such as "you ruined a funny joke, get out of my office").

WUPHF.com - S7-E9

Other mistake: When Jim is editing the audiobook of Jo's autobiography, the waveform displayed on his computer program is inaccurate to the phonetics of the phrase being uttered. The crew of the show simply pasted in a random waveform of someone speaking a different sentence. There are a number of ways to tell it is inaccurate, but one is the periodicity of the waveform during the sibilant [s], which appear be noisy and not periodic. (00:15:20)

Ultimatum - S7-E12

Other mistake: When Michael and Erin go back into Michael's office and start the video on Michael's computer, the "Play" button hasn't changed even though the video is playing. It should have changed to the pause button.

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.

The Cover-Up - S6-E23

Question: In the beginning, when Jim and Pam are supposedly communicating through Morse Code, do they actually saying anything? What about the end with Pam and Dwight? What is said? Or is it just random clicks, taps, and blinks to seem like Morse Code for the audience?

Bishop73

Answer: I only know the part about the detonator, the rest might be random but Jim said "There is a detonator in this office."

Is that what is actually clicked out? Seems way too long for what how short the scene is. Or are you just guessing that's what was implied because of Dwight's reaction.

Bishop73

Answer: This is what a person on Reddit wrote regarding Jim and Pam: I know Morse code well, and most of it was gibberish, especially Jim's clicks. Pam's second transmission was almost intelligible as SE HE IT (3 clicks 1 click, 4 clicks, 1 click, 2 clicks and long click). "

Answer: I tried to solve it, seemed like random clicking to me.
