* In season 9, why do they need a boom guy anyway? They're all wearing microphones already.
** Probably for scenes that takes place in situations where the cast wouldn't be wearing their uniforms.

** This is pretty clearly a reference to drugs.

* Why is Angela so weird about her initial relationship with Dwight and keep it a secret? She says doesn't "want people in her business" - not necessarily her coworkers, but ''the documentary crew''. She's uptight, and I'm sure she realizes that they're looking for a story and didn't want to be it (as they say near the end of the show, the crew really stuck so long to follow Jim and Pam). And once Jim and Pam become the clear focus of the documentary, she's more comfortable being open with Andy, the Senator, and eventually Dwight.

** 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.

* On the episode "Lecture Circuit" in season 5, Michael asks a very pregnant Karen if she had a man or if it was a non-conventional method. At first, it might appear that he is just being his usual tactless self, but it makes ALOT more sense once you realize that Michael had a very similar situation happen with Jan, and that he now sees this as a distinct possibility.

* Speaking of the tension between Michael and David, it seems there's more than meets the eye to the situation, specifically how it was started. Michael quitting wasn't just him being a diva again. He had gone above and beyond the call of duty by firing a rival company that had posed no threat to them, which was also something he clearly didn't want to do. David sending some jerk to chew him out after that on top of all his years of loyalty and services clearly pushed him over the edge.

* Andy's "Threat Level Midnight" rap over the end credits of the episode of the same name seems to throw out references to [[UsefulNotes/TheApartheidEra apartheid]] and "free Nelson Mandela" for no reason, until you consider that this could possibly indicate [[DevelopmentHell how long Michael's film has been in production]].
