The Weekend Tally

Tidbits about ‘The Office’ show, cast, and staff for the week ending October 26.

Tipsters: Zac, vanfan14, Anna, Amy


  1. Yea I think Greg Daniels and the crew made the right decision by keeping their voices in the proposal scene, but also did right in making it hard to hear. It would have been cool, and like Mr. Daniel’s said “more artsy”, to have no voices but ultimately IMO they made the right choice.

  2. No shout-out at all that John’s birthday was on the 20th? :( He might think that we didn’t care. ;)

  3. For some reason I kind of wish they left the voices out. I would by dying to know what they said, but I feel it was such a big moment and without the sound it just sets a different mood from the rest of the episode.

  4. I’d love to see the other version of the proposal. I think I would have been happy with either one.

  5. I’ve never been a big JAM fan, but I do respect the writers, crew, and Jenna and John for going through so much effort to please the hardcore JAM fans.

    And Amy Ryan? I am going to miss her…I miss her, Kiddo…I miss her SO much!

  6. That scene continues to give me chills, no matter how many times I watch it (with or without sound). :)

    and Thank you kevin for the message on personal attacks. Exactly how I feel, too.

  7. Honestly, I couldn’t tell what they were saying at all during the proposal scene…still loved it though!

  8. I think it would have been awesome/very realistic if they left the voices out…if I didn’t care about JAM. In other words, I’m so happy they kept the voices in! The fans would have been very angry if the voices were left out!

  9. I never knew about that Jeopardy! recap page. That’s awesome. I’ll have to check that out from time to time now. The things you can learn by liking The Office…

  10. Ok, thank you SO much for that article with Greg about the proposal. I had wanted to know since that episode if they ever considered leaving the voices out (like who drives to meet someone with their mic still on?) and I wanted to ask the writers but got to OT too late that day to submit that question.

    THANK YOU! It was really bothering me not to know. :D I’m so in love with that scene, but having it just be the action would have been so beautiful…I guess I can just turn down my volume next time I watch it!

  11. Amy Ryan seeks out role, but not sure if going to come back..

    A shame. If the show’s plot dictates her to come back and she doesn’t shame on her as a professional. Wasting our times.

  12. I went to a screening of Changeling last week and Amy Ryan is amazing in it! So good, in fact, that I spent half the movie trying to figure out if it was actually her or not.

    P.S. Tanster, loving Officetally 2.0 :)

  13. After reading the interview with Greg Daniels, I kind of wish they would have done it with no sound. To realistically hear what they were saying in the “documentary,” Pam and Jim would have had to have mics or the cameras would have had to have the amazing ability to pick up sound across a highway with lots of traffic and rain.
