* One year after the documentary aired, Dwight is still manager. Did David not see footage of him fire a gun at work? If he did, why has he not reprimanded him? Firing a gun in the office has got to be a third strike for Dwight.

* Regarding the romance arc in Season 3, Jim getting with Pam is ultimately a case of TheBadGuyWins. He kissed Pam, knowing full well that she was going ahead with her marriage to Roy. Pam realised she didn't love Roy and cancelled the wedding, pushing Roy over the edge. Jim then starts dating Karen, despite the lingering sexual tension between him and Pam. There's even the implication that he was just stringing Karen along solely to distract himself, not caring about her very real feelings for him. Pam tries seeing other men during this time, only to get back with Roy, who loses it when he finds out that Jim kissed her. He then tries to attack Jim, only to be subdued by Dwight and loses his job. Karen meanwhile gets increasingly paranoid about Jim and Pam's relationship. In the end, Jim dumps Karen ''in the middle of New York'' and gets with Pam. Jim put three people through uncomfortable situations and in the end comes out unscathed and with his ideal woman.
** I feel like this is a severe case of YMMV. First of all, Jim is never portrayed as anything remotely close to a "Bad Guy," certainly not in the way some other characters on this show (e.g. Jan) are. Secondly, while Jim did kiss Pam without permission, she kissed him back pretty much immediately, said she had also wanted to do it, and smiled at him, so it clearly was not the sexual assault implied above. Third, Jim and Karen had started their flirtationship before Jim knew there was even a chance of him being sent back to Scranton, he deliberated over whether or not he was going to go back (and it's strongly implied that he only did go back because of the pay raise), and the "lingering sexual tension" was something he was actively trying to move on from, hence why he shot down Pam's offer at coffee in the beginning of the merger episode. Furthermore, at the END of the merger episode Jim tries to talk to Pam about it, but she tries to play it cool by saying "nope, do whatever you want," which CLEARLY hurts him and pushes him toward Karen. The awkwardness between them throughout season three was Pam's fault just as much as it was Jim's because Pam also was not honest about her feelings until "Beach Games." Fifth, while it is implied that Karen was a rebound for Jim, it's equally as obvious that he does care about her, hence his "I'm really, really glad I'm with Karen" line in "Phyllis' Wedding." Sixth, yes, Pam tried seeing other people, and yes Pam got back together with Roy -- but Pam chose to do those things. Pam's choices and actions are not anyone's "fault" but her own and don't make Jim a bad guy. Seventh, Roy losing his job was entirely his own fault, so I'm not sure how Jim is to blame here? Jim did not ask Roy to attack him, Jim did not make Roy attack him, Jim was in no way at fault for Roy flipping out on Pam at Poor Richards' OR for trying to attack him. The only one at fault for that was Roy, something that even Roy himself acknowledges when he apologizes to Pam later. Blaming Jim for Roy's anger problems and subsequent attempted assault is absolutely ludicrous. Eighth, while it was definitely wrong for Jim to break up with Karen the ''way'' he did, it was still correct for him to break up with her when he realized he wanted to be with someone else. Ultimately he made the correct decision, even if he went about it the wrong way. So yes, this is a definite YMMV, not a Fridge Horror, and I soundly vote that it should be moved or at least tagged with the YMMV scales that I've seen on other pages.

* When Stanley reveals that he used to be part of the Black Panther party it shows just why he dislikes Michael so much. He is either angry over Michael believing stereotypes or is embarrassed that his younger self would validate Michael's views.
