Poll: Who IS that?

SPOILER WARNING! Photo and comments posted here may contain spoilers.

I’ve noticed one hot topic of conversation about the ‘Dinner Party’ photos, and thought it deserved a poll of its own.

The Office Dinner Party

There seems to be a lot of speculation over who this woman is, pictured on the left. I’ve collected all Tallyhead suggestions into this poll:
P.S. Do I know the answer? — absolutely I do. :)


  1. Well, it’s not Jan or Karen. From there, I’m not too sure. At this point, I think it is Michael’s mother, a random date for Dwight or someone part of Michael’s condo complex. I love the actress they got though, so I’m excited.

  2. haha, great poll Tanster =) intrigue!
    I think it is Mrs. Wallace, but I’m hoping it is Mother Scott. To get such insight into Michael’s lovable insanity..I think it’s too good to be true.

  3. It’s totally a librarian that Dwight dragged along. Obviously, it’s not Karen…slight possibility it may be Jan, but Michael’s mom?? For me, thats a huge character to introduce and, if it were to be mother scott, that is not the way I would hope for her to look.

  4. Hmm… watch Cocktails again. It’s most definitely Rachel Wallace. But why would she be at Michael’s dinner party?

  5. I dont think Dwight could pick up any girls, especially not a good girl librarian–well maybe…


    Yeah, I read somewhere that it’s definitely Michael’s Mom. Hilarity will ensue.

  7. Judging by the NBC release that said “Dwight jealousy gets the best of him” I think its someone Dwight hires as his date.

  8. It really does look like the lawyer from the deposition. Very similar hair, face, etc, but I noticed she’s not wearing any jewelery, in the deposition she has a few pieces on, I would have thought she was a NY lawyer too. I’m hoping it’s Jan’s mum, I think that would be terribly awkward for everyone, if its not Jan’s mum in this episode, that would be a great future episode, Michael meeting Jan’s Parents… Matt.

  9. I hope it’s Michael’s mom! It could be Jan’s mom, couldn’t it? But why would they randomly invite his mom over for dinner, with the “important” people from the office? Maybe there was something really really important going on??

  10. I think it could be Jan’s sexually progressive therapist. She has been mentioned a few times, such as in “Back from Vacation” and “Woman’s Appreciation”. My guess is that Jan invited her therapist to dinner to work on her relationship with Michael. Perhaps she is the reason for the dinner party. She may have encouraged a gathering where the couples in Jan and Michael’s life get together for some kind of discussion on relationships. If this is the case, my feeling is this woman may have made some unsavory comments that put Jim and Pam on edge. They do look a bit weirded out by something.

  11. Watch Cocktails. It most definitely is Rachel Wallace. The mom idea is funny, though.

  12. I think it’s Michael’s mom because it has been mentioned that she may or may not appear in the series.

  13. I like the idea of it being Jan’s therapist who keeps getting referenced. It would be so amusingly awkward to have that added element at the dinner party.
