The Tuesday Tally

Back in the real world now. Working in my humdrum little cubicle. Catching up on all the Office tidbits that have been sitting in my inbox for the past few days.

Here’s the good stuff:

  • Video: a very nicely done Office/Heroes mashup by seat18b.
  • Video: a clip from Oscar Nunez’s new Comedy Central show, Halfway Home.
  • Game: think you’re an Office quote master? Test your skillz at NBC’s Finish The Quote Game. (I was appalled at how badly I sucked at this.)
  • Award news: Kenneth Whittingham won an NAACP Image Award for “Outstanding Directing in a Comedy Series” for his work on Season 2’s ‘Michael’s Birthday.’ Congratulations! See the full list of winners here.
  • Article: In Step With Rainn Wilson. Parade Magazine’s profile of Rainn, including some hilarious quotes.
  • Article: Office Party. How the show turned Scranton into a pop-culture hot spot. Some interesting details about plans to bring the Office cast to Scranton.

  1. Jesus that quote quiz is hard, u have to have the right spelling and grammar in their. =(

  2. Scanton, a party spot? C’mon now. I do business there all the time, I’m not sure how much of a party spot it is, but it is a fun place to visit.

  3. Ditto on the quiz! I knew each quote, but if even a capital was off, they mark you wrong! I think they should accept the answer if it’s close enough. It’s almost as if you need a script right in front of you! It takes the fun out. On the upside; they ask you more questions if you do get one right.

  4. Yeah really, that quiz was evil! If you forgot a question mark it was wrong! Plus, most of the “harder” ones were just ridiculous cause they gave you so little to figure out what it was.

    I got a 95…out of 620 hahah

  5. Isn’t it so hard to get back to “real life” after last week? It was a great pleasure meeting and talking with you! Hope we can meet again someday. :)

  6. What a horrible quiz! They’re way too picky. I scored a 60, but one time I put Michael SCOTT (they do not accept last names) and another time I didn’t put the A in the title of the episode. NBC finally gave something new, but it was so difficult and nit picky, it was hard to enjoy the quiz, I just felt angry. I hope someone else has better luck.

  7. Hey you guys, this is really good feedback on the quiz, thanks! I will try to let someone at NBC know, maybe they can relax the rules a bit …

  8. Update on the quiz: If you are really bored at work (as I am) and have the time (as I do), copy and paste the right answers to the quotes in a seperate document and go through it again. Most of us know the answers already, we just need the exact wording and grammar that they use- So I don’t count it as cheating. It’s also fun trying to guess the correct character and show title. It’s better the second time, I promise. Plus it kills time til 5!

  9. Scranton is quite the party city. I went up the night before from philly to see dwight, and was too hungover to get in line superearly and missed out on meeting the man!

    Who’s excited for parade day this weekend?!?

  10. 155, and it should have been more like 200 because of how nitpicky the game is. But I obviously have much work to do before I can call myself a true Office fanatic!

  11. Looking at everyone’s score…maybe I’m not as big of a fanatic as I thought… :(

  12. waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too picky on grammar and spelling.
    I put “Michael Scott” for “who said it” and it counted as incorrect! horrendous.
    I knew most of the quotes GENERALLY but not all the way down to the prepositions. Sheesh.

  13. 165-but I would have gotten all of the “who said it” and “what episode was it from” correct. It could use a little tweaking.

    I was delighted to open up my Parade magazine on Sunday and see Rainn in that awesome white suit. Fun interview!
