Got a ‘Sabre’ question for Jen or John?

I’m so excited that Jen Celotta (update: AND John Krasinski!) have agreed to answer your questions about last night’s episode, Sabre!

Jen’s script. John’s directorial debut on The Office. Kathy Bates and Christian Slater guest star. Greg Daniels’ son returns. David Wallace leaves Sanity Island.

So much to talk about. :)

If you have a question about ‘Sabre,’ please post it in a comment below.

This post will close at 11pm Pacific Time tonight, so get your questions in today!

P.S. We’ve got quite a few duplicate questions now. Before posting yours, make sure it hasn’t already been asked. Thanks!


  1. Awesome ep! Nice job, Jenn. Silly question but was the IT person the same guy from Job Fair who Pam talks to about graphic design?

  2. When will you have the chance to play a character, Jen? Haven’t they worked out someone in the Schrute family for you to play?

  3. I’m curious, is David Wallace having a mid-life crisis or is he genuinely happy and wanting to really start on his new idea, The Suck It?

  4. Is the Office gang really going to go along with the new company’s rules or will we see a big rebellion?

  5. Kathy Bates and Christian Slater tend to play “dark” characters. Were these two casted based on this? I thought it was a perfect fit for a takeover by an unknown corporation.

  6. I really enjoyed the Andy/Erin duet even though it was sparse. I wonder, are we going to see them sing together again?

  7. How did you come up with the idea of Jim walking up on that guy in the bathroom? It was hilarious!
    And how did you feel about John being the director for this episode?

  8. Was the “Maybe you’re not as charming as you think you are.” comment a little dig at those fans who’ve complained that Jim and Pam have seemed less relatable this season?

  9. Back in the episode “Money”, Dwight reads “Harry Potter” to Jim, Pam, and Mose and I couldn’t help but notice some similarities between Jo and Professor Umbridge – seemingly really sweet but rules with an iron fist. Could be purely coincidental of course, but are the writers Harry Potter fans??

  10. Hi Jen,

    Awesome episode, one of my instant favorites! Here’s my question. Will we be able to see video footage of John Krasinski directing? Maybe on the DVD extras? Please?

  11. Great episode! Did you know who was going to play Sabre’s ceo or did you have Kathy Bates in mind when writing this episode?

  12. The episode really nailed the experience of what happens during a corporate buyout. Have you been through that in your own worklife, or did you talk to people who had?

  13. Amazing job, per usual! First off, what do rainbows really taste like? Second, was the scene with the orange juice and eco-metal jugs in the script or improvised when Michael says how it tastes “metalicky” and that it “really gets you in the fillings”? Because that was brilliant! Also, IT guy from Sabre is the guy from the job fair/art school, right? Please tell us that there will be a deleted scene with him and Pam :)

  14. I was wondering if we were going to see a lot more interaction between Jim and Pam during her pregnancy? Sabre was the first time in awhile that we really got to see one on one with Jim and Pam, and I think the fans miss that intimate interaction!

  15. In the past, The Office has avoided casting big name celebrities as guest stars to keep up with the tone of the show. Was this considered when casting Kathy Bates?
