    24 Little Details That Will Make You Appreciate "The Office" Even More

    The teapot from the finer things club looks familiar!

    1. In Season 3, Dwight admires the craftsmanship of a rocking chair in David Wallace's house. He even says, "I want one." By Season 9, he has one.

    2. At the beginning of the "Pilot," Dwight is singing "The Little Drummer Boy" to himself. It's not until Season 3 that we discover it's Angela's favorite song, which means Dwight and Angela's love might pre-date the show.

    3. And in Season 3, Dwight tells Phyllis at her wedding, “The Schrutes have their own traditions. We usually marry standing in our own graves.” In Season 9, he and Angela do just that.

    4. The 15-star American flag hanging at Schrute Farms was the official US flag from 1795–1818. Schrute Farms, it's mentioned, was established in 1812.

    5. In Season 2, Michael explains that they last took his corporate card away because he "spent 80 bucks at a magic shop." As he's saying this, he's wearing a magic prop on his thumb that magicians use to conceal small objects.

    12. Andy, who's well-known for sucking up to his bosses, wears a short-sleeve button-up shirt in the Season 7 episode when Dwight is made interim regional manager.

    NBC

    13. In Season 7 we can see just how bad of a salesman Andy truly is. He gets outsold by Madge, Glen, and Hide, who all work in the warehouse.

    NBC

    14. In the Season 6 episode, "St. Patrick's Day," Michael has an Italian flag on his desk, which he's clearly mistaken for the Irish flag.

    15. Jim's title in Stamford was "Assistant Regional Manager."

    NBC

    16. Hanging on the wall of Michael's office is a certificate of authenticity for a "Seyko" brand wristwatch. The actual brandname is spelled "Seiko," which means Michael bought a knockoff thinking it was real.

    17. Dunder Mifflin was given an award from the "Rain Forest Harvesters Association" for "One Million Cut Trees."

    NBC

    18. In Season 2, Dwight and Kevin bond over a shared love of firecrackers. In Season 6, they're the only ones who are upset when Jim and Pam prohibit firecrackers at their wedding.

    NBC

    22. In the very same episode you can spot a picture frame containing only the word "His" written in cursive, which means Jan probably took the "Hers" when she moved out.

    NBC

    23. Dunder Mifflin's Scranton address is a nod to the UK version of The Office, which is set in Slough, England.

    NBC

    24. Oh! And remember how many times Bob Vance introduces himself as "Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration?" One theory for this is that he sees the camera as an opportunity for some free advertising.
