The Office

Survivor Man - S4-E7

Continuity mistake: In "The Alliance" (1-4), Pam says that the next office birthday is Meredith's, but it isn't until the next month. Later, in "Survivor Man", it is said that Meredith's birthday is at the end of 'Birthday Month', when many employees have birthdays close together. It wouldn't be possible for Meredith's birthday to both be the next office birthday but also at the end of the following month, which is stated to have many other birthdays in it.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: In 4-14 "Goodbye, Toby", Andy Bernard invites his parents to the going-away party for Toby Flenderson and introduces them as "Andrew and Ellen Bernard." But in 6-16 Andy tells Jim that he was originally named "Walter Jr." after his father and that it was changed when his little brother was born and the name Andrew was one that they got out of a baby-naming book. Additionally, in 8-4 "Garden Party", Dwight is introducing the entering guests. When Andy's parents arrive, Dwight says, "Mr. And Mrs. Walter and Ellen Bernard."

Secretary's Day - S6-E21

Safety Training - S3-E19

Character mistake: Darryl says the warehouse has never gone a full year without an injury. However, previously in "Boys and Girls" a board is shown giving the number of days without an accident as over a year.

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.

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.

Customer Loyalty - S9-E12

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, we are shown a video of Dwight getting splashed with the milkshake from the point of view of the guys in the car. But it splashes differently the two times we see it. The first time it hits his lower body, and on the video, it hits him in his upper body.

E-Mail Surveillance - S2-E9

Continuity mistake: About midway through the episode, when Michael is asking Dwight about his evening plans, Dwight's collar is up. Moments later, his collar is down.

Last Day in Florida - S8-E18

Continuity mistake: In this episode Michael can't ride a bike. But in episode 3-10, Michael was seen riding a bike with no problems.

Knever

Launch Party - S4-E3

Other mistake: In the beginning of the episode Meredith asks Jim to sign her cast. If you look closely, it's obvious that the actor John Krasinski signs his real name, not the name of his character, Jim Halpert.

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.

Andy's Ancestry - S9-E3

Continuity mistake: Nellie and Pam are driving along, discussing what to make up about people's ancestry. Here, we see the same background go past Pam, a driveway with a black SUV on the right, and a white SUV on the left. This shot is only repeated in the angle where we can only see Pam, and the view out of the passenger side window. The car is driving along as normal, we see the two cars on the driveway, and then the car turns a corner, and we see the same shot all over again.

Dishwasher

The Boat - S9-E6

Revealing mistake: When Oscar is talking to the camera crew, and Kevin appears with his ice-cream falling, you can see his thumb having pushed the ice-cream scoop off the cone.

Knever

Ben Franklin - S3-E14

Continuity mistake: When the dancer is sitting on Michael's lap, she messes up some of his hair, causing it to stick up. In the next shot, his hair has fixed itself.

Garage Sale - S7-E18

Character mistake: As Michael is getting ready to propose to Holly, he stops in the foyer and says, "This is where Toby announced that he was going to Costa Rica. Happiest day of my life." This is a discrepancy, as Michael was in New York partying with Ryan and Dwight when Toby made this announcement.

Ouchissm

Hot Girl - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Michael takes Katy (the purse lady) around the office, she worries about leaving her purses unguarded so while walking by Phyllis and Stanley's desk clump he asks Ryan to look after the purses, but Ryan says he can't because he's "installing File-Share on all the computers." Both Stanley and Phyllis are noticeably absent from the shot. Stanley's desk is empty and Ryan is sitting at Phyllis' desk. Michael and Katy take a few steps and walk into the kitchen area. In the background we can now see that both Stanley and Phyllis are now sitting at their desks and Ryan is nowhere in sight. There wasn't enough time for everyone to switch locations like that as only a moment had passed between the shots.

Pilot - S1-E1

Continuity mistake: When Jan, Michael and Pam are having a meeting in Michael's office they're sitting against the front window, but during that scene when it shows Jim and Dwight talking at their desks, if you look over Jim's shoulder you'll see that the office behind them is empty.

Traveling Salesmen - S3-E12

Factual error: While the sale team break up the huddle in the parking lot to do sale calls, the camera zooms out and you see a palm tree in the background, but this show takes place in cold weather Pennsylvania.
