Song played by Dwight's family after Aunt Shirley's funeral: "Sons and Daughters," by The Decemberists. It is also played after Dwight and his brother and sister walk towards Aunt Shirley's farm at the end of the episode.
Song playing during Jim's presentation: "Clocks" by Coldplay.
While at his house in Florida, Robert California attempts to give Dwight a medal he says was his grandfathers, presumably from some past conflict. The award is actually the ArmyAchievementMedal (AAM), which is a lower end peacetime award and was not authorized for the Army until 1981.
Robert's Original List
Left Side: Jim, Dwight, Oscar, Darryl, Andy, Toby, Phyllis, Angela, Kevin
Right Side: Stanley, Gabe, Ryan, Kelly, Old Man, Pam, Meredith, Erin
When Deangelo and Andy are driving to the client meeting, you can see palm trees through the windshield even though the show takes place in Pennsylvania.
Andy's flyer for his business seminar includes neither any contact information (no phone number, email, or address) nor a date and time for the seminar.
In the first scene of the episode, Dwight says: "Do you have any idea how expensive wool is in Transylvania... because of the euro?" However, Transylvania is in Romania, and Romania hadn't adopted the euro by 2010.
In "Benihana Christmas", Michael brings in a used bike for the office Toys for Tots collection and actually rides the bike into the office, though here he seems to be clueless how to ride a bike.
While The Mall at Steamtown is real, the Precious Heirlooms store depicted inside is not.
The "cheating movie" with Ali Larter and Beyonce that Andy refers to is "Obsession (2009)." It stars Idris Elba, who appeared earlier in The Office as Charles Miner.
In this episode, Andy mentions that "if it weren't for secretaries, I wouldn't have a step-mother", but in Season 5's "Weight Loss", Andy tells Angela about a place he wants for their wedding, claiming "This is where my parents decided not to get divorced."
When Jim and Jo are in the conference room and Michael interrupts them, he enters and makes Jim's hair a mess. In the next shot, the moment Jo names Jim the new manager, Jim's hair is perfectly combed, like it was never messed up before.
Some of Dwight's ideas for what his gift is (as written on his list): Aardvark Trap; Beaver Trap; Gun; Chipmunk Trap; Possum Trap; Skunk trap; Lobster Trap; Man trap; Lathe; Abdominizer; Speculum
On the list for things the office employees are not allowed to make fun of each other for, Ryan's list says "Kelly".
When Dwight is talking to the kids at the table, in the close up shots he is holding two medium sized fries, but in the wide shots he is holding one long fry.
There is now a new office built for Jim. It is in the far corner (on the other side of the conference room, where Creed's desk use to be). Creed now sits where Ryan use (across from Meredith) to and Pam now sits where Jim use to. As of this episode, it hasn't shown where Ryan's new desk is.
Although made fairly obvious in the finale last season, it is officially announced that Pam is pregnant.
In this episode, Pam brags about playing volleyball in junior high, high school, college, and at summer camps. However, in "Job Fair" she points to her old high school gym and said she would fake PMS to get out of playing volleyball.
Dwight claims going to a courthouse in Ohio would allow one to "obtain a learner's permit at age 14½ instead of 15," when in truth, one cannot be generally obtained until age 15½, and the only exceptions go through the Registrar of Motor Vehicles, not a courthouse.
This is the second time Michael fake fires Pam, the first being in "Pilot". This is also the second time he fake fires the receptionist (also Pam in "Pilot").
