Posts that are about items of merchandise ("look at this cool shirt", "I found this board game", "I made Cards Against The Office") are prohibited without prior mod approval.

9) No New Spoilers

Actors from The Office may feature in new media and franchises. Though it may be tempting to discuss their new roles, feeling like this is a safe community to do so: it isn't.

Reposts

Please do not repost. Frequent reposts will be removed, please search the sub before posting.

Recent reposts will also be removed. If you're posting a recent tweet/article/headline, it's probably already been submitted.

Stay relevant

Make sure your whole post is relevant to the show, not just the title or image. If you have to give it a The Office title to make it relevant, it's not worth posting.

Scranton strangler

Everyone who thinks it’s gabe or Toby (it’s definitely Toby) how do you explain when Toby comes back from the prison with the neck brace from being strangled? Do you think he faked it to cover his tracks?

Trying to find a deleted scene

I'm trying to find a deleted scene I saw years ago where toby asks Erin to do something, then she responds?? (it was awhile ago) and then Toby yells at her. I'm 99% sure this was real and I'm not making it up. Does anyone know where to find this scene?

Did you know..

Alright, check this out! So, Phyllis, the casting guru, ended up snagging the role of, wait for it, Phyllis herself! Picture this: they were all huddled up, reading through the script, when boom! Director Ken Kwapis, in his infinite wisdom, points to her and goes, "You, Phyllis, you're the one!" Total game-changer, right? It's like straight out of a Hollywood blockbuster, but nah, just another day at Dunder Mifflin!

What do you think are some of the funniest “under appreciated” moments in the show?

I think mine is when Michael responds to Erin talking about the life insurance scheme.

“Idk…. What the bleep that was.”

The delivery and pacing just absolutely kill me.

Do you agree or disagree with this?

Personally, I slightly disagree, particularly when it shows that Dwight is evil and not neutral.

Does anyone know what David Wallace said to Ryan on the phone in Weight Loss?

There's a superfan scene where Ryan talks to David on the phone and David yells at him. Just wondering if anyone with better hearing knew what he said?

What is Meredith's joke in S3E17? Wrong answers only.

The setup is "Why did Pam hook up with Roy at Phyllis' wedding?" And the joke is beeped out. (For those who might not remember)

So I’ve heard that Donna recommends Lee Iacocca to Michael because it’s written by B.J. Novak’s dad. Donna says it’s going to make Michael go out and buy a Chrysler, and he says he owns a Chrysler. So my question is: does Michael own a Chrysler because of B.J. Novak in the first place?

Has anyone else noticed consistencies in deleted scenes on Superfan episodes?

I’ve watched all the superfan episodes. Two things I’ve noticed that consistently show up in super fan episodes that were cut out in the original:

  1. Several scenes of people being jerks to Erin. Meredith tells her “we will always like Pam more than you”. Michael makes her cry and, on a separate occasion, tells her he hated her when he first met her. Toby yells at Erin for asking about Pam’s vacation days, etc. In the original, there are not very many scenes of people directly being mean to her.

  2. People acknowledging Creed’s creepiness. In the original it seems like people were aloof of Creed’s creepiness. In the Superfan episodes there are several additional scenes where people actually acknowledge his creepiness.

What If: Michael bought Dunder Mifflin?

I was inspired by the What If? scenarios people have posted for other fandoms so I wanted to take a crack at one for the office. So here is the premise:

When Michael pitches the Michael Scott Paper Company to Nanna's investment group, the two other members overrule his grandma and decide to invest a significant sum. Because of this, Vikram stays on. With more capital and talent, they gain momentum quickly. Michael hires Prince and Son to poach back all of their clients as well, digging deeper into Dunder Mifflin's bottom line.

When David reaches out for a buyout, the negotiations fail because Michael has more leverage and more staff. Dunder Mifflin simply can't afford to hire all of them and Michael refuses to leave anyone behind. After that, the Scranton branch is shut down and he is able to poach more staff and business from the old office. Michael now has the true dream team, the MSPC grows bigger and bigger as it takes more business from DM.

The night before a quarterly board meeting where David Wallace will have to explain the losses to shareholders, Michael reaches out to him. He tells David that they were always friends and he never wanted any of it to be this way. He offers David the position of CEO as long as he devalues Dunder Mifflin at the board meeting the next day.

David makes the company look terrible, Michael swoops in and makes an offer to buy out Dunder Mifflin. The board has no choice but to accept and the Michael Scott Paper Company absorbs the remaining staff and assets of Dunder Mifflin! Michael appoints Wallace as CEO and goes back to doing what he loves- managing the Scranton branch. As one final favor, he asks David to transfer a certain HR rep back to Scranton and he lives happily ever after with Holly Flax :)

I know i went way too into this lol, but it was fun to think about. Let me know what you think or if there are any other What Ifs you have in mind for The Office! I love this kind of thing so please share your ideas.

Costume Contest (S7E6) - What is it below Michael’s ear?

I had never noticed that. Is this something to do with his MacGruber costume? Or maybe a deleted scene where he tries to do something unsavoury to impersonate Darnell?

Their hand fondling at Michaels desk while in a conversation with Oscar was beyond disgusting. How can a human being with an HR background not realize this?

"No more knock-knock jokes!"

I feel like Jim's "Ding dong" had to be improv, based on Michael's expression - not only in response to "Ding dong" but when he says "Dwight, answer the door!". And then the 3rd and 4th "ding dong" he's trying to make it sound more like a real doorbell.

I rewound this like 6 times to watch the gleam in Steve Carrel's eye.

Anyone have a confirmation from some other content or somewhere to indicate this was improv?
