  1. I see Michael is trying to connect to Erin like he used to do when Pam was the receptionist. Pam totally understood him, I don’t think Erin does.

  2. awww poor Erin! I hope she and Andy get together eventually so she has at least one person who is nice to her in the office!

  3. Did Erin say she was talking to her mom? I thought she was an orphan … or was that never confirmed? Anyway, she is such a delightful character. I’m liking her (and feeling sorry for her!) more and more every episode.

    [from tanster: nice catch, kenna! hmmm, i wonder …]

  4. Kind of an extended scene so I see why they had to cut it, but it was funny – especially with all of Michael’s ‘bleeps.’ Poor Erin…

  5. I think orphan denotes that the biological parents had died. It could be her foster mother and and she probably just calls her mom based the fact that she’s a super nice person.

  6. Erin’s laugh is SO cute. I loved it all through the episode. The “bleep” makes me laugh everytime! I think it’s funnier then the actual profanity would be.

  7. Awww Erin! Why do the writers keep torturing us by torturing this girl?! Don’t get me wrong, it’s hilarious, but still!

  8. That’s probably why it was cut, not only because it was a little long, but because she said that it was her mom and yet she’s supposed to be an orphan. The editor probably caught that too and decided to delete the scene.

  9. Why is Michael treating Erin mean like the others? From what I see she treats him much nicer than Pam ever did. And you will think he would be a little sensitive since for the longest time he was treated like the office pariah, but I guess Michael would not be Michael if he didn’t do unreasonable things.

  10. I have BEEN where Erin is.. also where Pam WAS. Trying so hard to read a boss so you can anticipate his/her needs — because they really require you to! So tough for Erin, because Michael is all over the place. Pam did manage it, but only just. Actually, Pam mostly stayed quiet and got by.. Erin seems to need to be a more responsive partner.

    I love you Office, for mirroring real office relationships!

  11. Daniel (12) – Greg Daniels has said before that the deleted scenes in The Office are still a part of the show (hence, if you learn something in the Deleted Scenes, consider it as part of what’s going on in the flow of the show)… Knowing that, I doubt they’d put this as a deleted scene if they caught the orphan/Mom comment… It was probably just too long or they had enough material that seemed more fitting. :)

  12. As usual, the best stuff gets cut. Drop the co-manager story, kill off Pam, and put the Erin storyline front and center.

  13. #2 Kelly, Given that Andy is far more volatile and reactive by nature than Michael, if Erin cries every time someone snaps at her, she’s in for a tough time with him, I’m afraid.

  14. #15 Faith, on the Do Not Mock white board in “Koi Pond” under Erin’s name it says “orphan.” I would assume she was adopted if she says she has a mom.
