On Peter's personnel file, his address is shown to be 191 N. Lamar, Flander, IL 77070. (77070 is actually the zip code for Houston, Texas. N. Lamar is a major thoroughfare in Austin, TX where The Alligator Grille (filming location for Chotchkie's) was located.) His mother's name is Suzi Gibbons and lives at 11004 Marble Rd., Erie, NY 05452 (actually a Vermont zip code).

The infamous "PC Load Letter" error that confounded Michael Bolton is a message that the printer was out of, or not recognizing the refill of Letter-sized (8.5x11 inches) paper. "PC" stands for "Paper Cartridge". Older model HP Laserjet printers commonly display this error. This error also occurs when attempting to print a non-letter-sized project onto letter-sized paper.

Goofs
When Tom is in his wheelchair with the halo on, you can see his head move, indicating that the halo isn't tight on his head, which it should be, in order to brace his head from moving.

(at around 7 mins) In the traffic jam, Michael Bolton pushes down the lock of his car. Immediately after that, the lock is twice seen to be up.

When Peter goes in to get interviewed for the first time by the Bobs, there is no shade or blinds covering the office window. You can see the office through the glass. However, when you see Peter first go in, the window is not see-through and has a blind/shade covering it.

Q
What is a TPS report?
A
A TPS report (Testing Procedure Specification) is a document used in software engineering, in particular by a Software Quality Assurance group or individual, that describes the testing procedures and the testing process (aka, the "Master Test Plan" (MTP)). This document necessarily precedes the iterative 'test, report, respond' process which should ultimately fulfill the stated goals of the MTP. In the context of "Office Space" the company's supervisors are obsessed with "TPS Reports" to get beyond the MTP and begin testing/updating their "bank software" for Y2K compliance (which uses IEEE procedure but based on the MTP).TPS (IEEE 828-2000) has been superseded by the IEEE by integrating the specification into the Software Design Specification but Y2K concerns make the post-design TPS necessary for banking software and the plot of "Office Space." In pop-culture "TPS Report" is synonymous with "any seemingly pointless form or report" based on the context designated by Mike Judge.
