  • Local Ad
    • "Kit Kat" advertising jingle [2] - Andy is unable to remember the entire song. He spends time attempting to complete the "Gimme a break, gimme a break, break me off a piece of that______ (kit kat)" line while Jim watches not sharing the correct lyric. Andy never correctly identifies the product advertised, electing instead to plug in random three-syllabe phrases and see which one fit. After cycling through "applesauce," "Grey Poupon," "football cream," "Chrysler car," "Hair for Men," and coming dangerously close with "Snickers bar" before being interrupted by Michael, he eventually settles on "Fancy Feast," following the bullet-proof logic that whatever the item is, it must rhyme with "piece."

    • "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane is sung by Michael, Holly and Darryl in the car on their road trip taking Holly back to Nashua, New Hampshire. The song plays on the radio at least four times, and the dynamic in the truck is symbolized by its occupants reaction to the song (e.g. at the beginning, Michael gets very excited and all three sing along, but as the trip goes on and Michael and Holly start fighting, they come to resent the song the more it plays).
  • Moroccan Christmas
    • "El-Maddahine (Isawi)" by Chalf Hassan plays while Michael mixes an "Orange Vod-juice-ka" for Jim and Meredith catches fire.
