* In the season 2 premier, it is discovered that accounting has one more employe than is needed and in "Scott's Tots" it is revealed that Kevin originally applied for a warehouse job but Michael had a "good feeling" about him and gave him an accounting job.
* Why would Dwight have Meredith, of all people, help him put the raccoon in Holly's car during Toby's good-bye party? He insisted it wasn't rabid, but he had no way of knowing for sure - and since Meredith had already been exposed to rabies earlier in the season, [[FridgeHorror he probably thought she wouldn't die if she was bitten!]]
* It has been a long time since Angela had interacted with Andy at all, so why did she suddenly go tell him not to let pride get in the way on his last day of Dunder Mifflin? Let's backtrack here. Angela wasn't talking about her recent scandal with the senator, she was actually talking about her life for the past 9 years. She was also apologizing to Andy for using him to get revenge on Dwight, which caused a chain reaction that lead to her downfall.
* During the episode "Casino Night", Oscar is the one who is opposed to giving the money to the Boy Scouts. Not only because of the reason stated, but because Oscar is gay and the Boy Scouts are homophobic.
* During the Pilot, Dwight unlocks one of his desk drawers and pulls out his telephone handset. Cut to end of season 2, Conflict Resolution, where we learn of a prank Jim pulled involving adding nickels to the handset to make it heavier.
* 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.
* How has pretty much everyone in the Office managed to become a KarmaHoudini by not being fired? Let us count the ways:
** The major reason implied in series is that Scranton is the best selling branch of the company. The higher ups are clearly impressed with this fact, going so far as to try and discover the secret of how this is from Michael and he was able to threaten David Wallace into getting him and his associates hired back to the company by bringing up the fact that the best branch suffering a drop in profits would bring heat on him, implying that corporate would be reluctant to do anything to damage that capability which is further supported by the gradual loss of business the company suffers throughout the series.
** "Did I Stutter?" implies Michael, who genuinely cares for the office workers and dislikes playing the bad guy, hides certain indiscretions from corporate or is otherwise able to convince Toby that things aren't as severe as they really are. The fact that Toby doesn't take his job too seriously likely means that there is almost no line of communication with corporate so they probably aren't aware of ''everything'' that goes on in Scranton, with only major acts of policy violation within the company being addressed.
** One episode shows Michael refusing to help Darryl receive a raise with the motivation that he only makes slightly more than Darryl. The fact that Michael has worked at the company for over a decade and is a manager makes this perplexing but given David Wallace has shown a few CorruptCorporateExecutive traits he probably led Michael into thinking that everyone pretty much makes the same amount to keep payrolls to a minimum while retaining the service of incredibly skilled salespeople. Corporate probably doesn't want to take action against Scranton unless it has to so they can avoid the employees taking them to court over technically withholding pay.
* By the time Michael resigned for good, he had 8 men and 6 women under his management (not counting Toby or Darryl, since they don't directly work for Michael). The next two new employees were both female (Jordan and Nellie, with Cathy as a temp). This was most likely due to Sabre's policy that stated no male applicants could be considered until the manager had an even number of men and women working for them. Once David Wallace reclaimed the business, he probably scrapped that policy, allowing Pete and Clark to be hired.
* 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]].

* Dwight's fire drill. WhatAnIdiot, right? But...the office did not follow any safety procedures and started panicking. It was 2009 and not one of them had the idea to use their cell phones to call for help. Despite his insane line of thinking, Dwight was right all along. What would happened if the staff was trapped in a real burning building?
** Hell, they even forget to pull the fire alarm. Dwight does so while the others frantically try to escape, ''several minutes'' after the "fire" starts.
* In universe, after Michael hits Meredith with his car, Jim starts to wonder about the time Michael came into work complaining about hitting a "speed bump" on the freeway.
* In the episode "Dinner Party" Michael mentions having three vasectomies, which sounds bad enough, and after the third one he can't have kids. But it's said he has kids with Holly in the finale. So Michael most likely had another reverse vasectomy!
* 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.

* In season 9, why do they need a boom guy anyway? They're all wearing microphones already.
