Goofs

While giving a tour of the condo (specifically the master bedroom) to Jim and Pam, Michael says "this is my bed", while showing them a small bench at the foot of the bed. This statement contradicts Michael's saying "I don't like the bump" as to the reason why Michael hides his diary under Jan's side of the bed, in the previous week's episode "The Deposition", season 4. episode,12. Michael's statement about the bump (in the "The Deposition" episode) would obviously lead one to believe that he of course sleeps in the same bed as Jan, and not on the bench. See more »

I heard the ice cream truck

Such a great episode, so many good bits, I believe the hardest episode to film due to them cracking up all the time especially the scene with the Plasma TV. For me when Michael is showing them around the bedroom and describes where he sleeps had me in stitches the first time I saw it.
