Trivia

When Jim is talking to Andy about Battlestar Galactica, he's obviously discussing it incorrectly in order to goad Dwight into wasting time. The franchises he references during his "recap" are: Star Wars, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. See more »

Goofs

Meredith claims that she has been sleeping with the Hammermill rep (Bruce Meyers) for a discount for the past 6 years. However Michael opened up the relationship with Hammermill in "The Convention" which was chronologically just 2 years before. See more »

Quotes

Jim Halpert: [Jim has been tracking all of Dwight's work time] He has not stopped working, for a second! At 12:45, he sneezed while keeping his eyes open, which I always thought was impossible. At 1:32, he peed, and I know that because he did it in an open soda bottle under the desk while filling out expense reports. And on the flip side, I've been so busy watching him that I haven't even started work. It's exhausting being this vigilant. I'll probably have to go home early today.
