What does it mean if the endoplasmic reticulum is continuous with the outer membrane? I don't understand that statement at all.

It means that the reticulum joins with the outer membrane. Basically, they aren't separate so as to be disjunct, they're connected and so, you can form a continuous, unbroken line between them.

It's difficult to explain what continuous means here, but hope that makes sense, haha.
