When Mr. Carlson comes out to ask if there is a meeting scheduled with the "Super New Staple Remover" salesman, she tells Mr. Carlson that he has a meeting scheduled with this man from 4:15 to 6pm. It should have been from 12:30 to 1:45pm, assuming the schedule would have been an hour and fifteen minutes. See more »

Quotes

Arthur Carlson: [pointing at the large advertising posters] Well Herb, what do you think? What we have here is a commercial for Soul Suds shampoo, a shampoo which is exclusively marketed to the hip black customer. Am I correct?
Herb Tarlek: Yes, sir.
Arthur Carlson: [looking at the photo of Herb on the ad] Then why are we looking at a picture of this really idiotic-looking white man?
