The Manager and the Salesman - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Michael enters the room he messes with Jim's hair and Jim's hair is noticeably different, however a few different camera angles later Jim's hair is back to normal even though he couldn't have possibly had time to touch it. (00:09:10 - 00:09:50)

Niagara - S6-E4

Character mistake: When it briefly shows the sign for their wedding rehearsal dinner, they spell Jim's last name wrong. The sign reads "Beesly-Halpret" wedding rehearsal dinner, not Halpert. (00:11:00)

The Lover - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: When Jim is outside comforting Pam after she finds out her mother is dating Michael, he begins to explain a mallard recording device that Dwight gave to him and used a big hand motion that put his hand in the air. In the next shot, the hand that was in the air is now gripping his coffee cup.

Mafia - S6-E5

Plot hole: When Jim's bank calls his office, Kevin is there and ends up pretending to be Jim. The Banker automatically assumes that he is not in Puerto Rico only from asking his address and social security number. It would have been very plausible for him to have forwarded the number to his cell phone, where the same scenario could conceivably occur (since The Banker refused to listen when Kevin tried to correct her).

Double Date - S6-E8

Continuity mistake: In Fun Run (4-1) when Michael hits Meredith in the parking lot, it is said by him that it was on company property, but in this episode Pam says that the hit in the parking lot will be off company property.

Niagara - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Dwight is talking to the kids, he picks up one fry. In the shot of him from behind, he's holding two fries. It goes back to one fry when he takes a bite.

The Promotion - S6-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kevin is writing Pam a check, he flips it open so the check register is folded under the checks. After he says "wait till Monday", the check register is no longer folded under the checks.

St. Patrick's Day - S6-E18

Continuity mistake: When Jim reveals the tiny desk underneath his "Quad-Desk" to Dwight, Dwight sets his briefcase down on a chair not shown in any previous shot. (00:21:05)

Happy Hour - S6-E20

Continuity mistake: When Michael is doing press-ups Angela is sat, then she stands to see what's going on - away from her chair, it cuts to another shot, and she is sat down again.

The Meeting - S6-E2

Character mistake: When Dwight and Toby drive by Darryl's house to investigate his injury, a New York Yankees sign is on the front porch of Darryl's home. Throughout the show, however, it is strongly implied that Darryl is a Philadelphia Phillies fan. This is a character contradiction. (00:10:19)

Trivia: Michael says his favorite "Glee" character is "the invalid", referring to Artie Abrams. Artie is played by Kevin McHale. McHale appeared in one episode of "The Office", s04e03 (Launch Party), as the pizza delivery boy that Michael ends up "kidnapping."

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.
