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. (00:13:15)

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

The Target - S9-E8

Revealing mistake: When Angela asks Dwight to meet in their old spot, she arrives to see him apparently naked. There is pixelation around his groin area, but you can still see that he's actually wearing flesh-coloured underwear. (00:18:05)

Ivan Paperman

Suit Warehouse - S9-E11

Character mistake: Erin is shown drinking an espresso in 5-25 "Café Disco". Later in the series in this episode, when Clark brings an espresso machine in that was given to him by Jan, everyone decides to try every flavor. In an interview Erin starts rambling but then remember the actual question she was asked, have you ever had an espresso before, she said she had not.

Suit Warehouse - S9-E11

Continuity mistake: They take a pledge to "We all drink them all" referring to the espresso flavors. Angela puts her hand on top of the pile and it flips between Oscar's hand and Stanley's hand under hers depending on the camera angle.

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.

Knever

Michael Scott: This is an environment of welcoming, and you should just get the hell outta here.

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.
