Trivia

Goofs

When Jim Harper is in the bar with Hallie Shea after she has been fired, he reads the Twitter message that she posted as, "Just left ACN for the last time. Great five weeks. Honest people. Sensational experience. One regret. I tweeted a terrible joke on the network's account. No one else involved." This message is 175 characters, however, Twitter limits messages to 140 characters. Since it is being read out loud it is impossible to know which words may have abbreviated, but the message is significantly longer than the Twitter limit. See more »
