Lecture Circuit: Part 2 - S5-E15

Corrected entry: In this episode Angela complains about the amount of leave time a woman gets when she has a baby. To which Meredith says 'she's right, I had my second kid just for the vacation'. But through the entire series, before and after this episode, Meredith has only had one child, a son.

Correction: Meredith only has custody of one child, her son, Jake. However, she has a daughter, Wendy. Wendy's father (one of Meredith's ex-husband) has custody of her.

Business Ethics - S5-E2

Corrected entry: Meredith claims she is sleeping with the supplier of Hammermill products for the branch to get discounts and has been for six years. But Michael only got his branch to be able to sell their products in episode 3-2 "The Convention", two years earlier, so this is impossible.

Correction: She doesn't mention having slept with him specifically for the discounts, she also mentions that she gets Outback Steakhouse gift certificates. The only logical conclusion is that she had been sleeping with the rep primarily for the coupons, and then added on the discounts to the supplies when he just happened to become their supplier.

New this month Correction: It's also possible that the rep she was sleeping with was not with Hammermill for the entire six years they were sleeping together. He could have easily been with another product line during those six years.

Season 5 generally

Corrected entry: In Season 5, Jim is talking to Charles Miner and mentions that he is the number two in the office, and ultimately admits that this is a made up position. However, in Season 3, when Stamford is closing and being absorbed by Scranton, Jan specifically offers him the number two position in Scranton.

Correction: After Josh abandoned the company, Jim was offered this spot during the restructuring, as an incentive to make sure that he stayed at Dunder-Mifflin. Basically, this job was made up for him, as a promise that he would move on to higher positions of responsibility within the company, given time. Charles obviously doesn't like Jim, and doesn't want him to advance within the company, so he belittles Jim's "made up" position as an attempt to show Jim how little he values him.

The mistake is valid and it has nothing to do with Charles belittling Jim's position. Jan did offer the position of number two to Jim. At first he was going to be number two behind Josh, but when Josh left, corporate gave him the same offer, only behind Michael. Jim's position is completely different than the one given to Dwight, in addition, Jim says Michael offered him the number two position, which he didn't.

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.
