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. (00:16:30)

Trivia: In the synopsis of "The Alliance" on the DVD, Jim Halpert is incorrectly listed as "John", the name of the actor who plays him. It's not technically a mistake within the show, but worth noticing.

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.

E-Mail Surveillance - S2-E9

Question: When Angela is buying the Baby Ruths, most of the other candies are turned backwards (I assume to avoid product placement). But above the Baby Ruth is one with the name facing forward that looks like it's called "Picaroon." Is this a real candy bar that's local to the Scranton area or just completely made up? If it's made up, any inside information about where the name came from or if there's an inside joke or show reference to it?

Answer: In the 2007 episode "Ben Franklin" when Jim is talking to Pam there is a candy bar with a purple wrapper that says "Picar-" I assume picaroon, it's hard to see past Pam. I found this trying to investigate what that candy bar is lol.

Answer: There does not appear to be a real candy bar by that name. The word is real, however. It refers to someone who is a rogue, a scoundrel, a thief, or an otherwise dubious character.
