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.

The Duel - S5-E11

Continuity mistake: Michael's scarf is above his collar in the first shot, but moments later, seemingly without moving, his scarf is tucked below his collar. (00:06:40)

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)

Baby Shower - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: When Jan lets Michael finally hold Astrid, she has a pacifier. When Michael gives her to Phyllis, Astrid's pacifier is gone.

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)
