* FakeAmerican: Idris Elba (Charles) is actually British. The character seems vaguely transatlantic, especially in terms of accent, and anyone who's seen ''TheWire'' knows Elba could have done a much more convincing American accent if he'd wanted to. Charles is also an avid soccer fan.

* ShoutOut : A few, to the show's location. One episode has Michael acting like the BigBad in ''Film/TheDevilWearsPrada''. The author hails from Scranton, PA. Likewise Michael's love of magic and one "cold-open" where he tries to escape a straightjacket--there is a Houdini Museum in Scranton.

** During season 9, the crew originally wanted to put a spin on the CreditsGag from late season 7 when [[spoiler:Andy went on his boat trip: the final shot of Andy knocking his sailor statue from the desk would have been replaced with a shot of the manager's office from the same angle, but with nobody there, and stacks of paper on the desk that would be getting bigger and bigger. They ultimately decided to not focus on Andy's absence and simply removed the shot entirely]].
