Here’s the transcripts, courtesy of a comment posted by Cousin Mose:

For those who can’t get the clips to play (like myself earlier today), here’s a synopsis of each scene:

#1: The ladies are planning the office party in the conference room. Every suggestion made is shot down by Angela. Karen suggests a couple of things to help the Stamford folk feel more at home, like a raffle or drinking contest (Meredith LOVES that one), but Angela shoots each one down in turn. She says they do not fit with the theme of a Nutcracker Christmas. Angela then kicks Karen out of the room. Pam looks uncomfortable.

#2: Michael rides into the office on a bicycle with a bow on the handlebars. He puts it in with donated toys for a toy drive. Jim and the others comment on how old and beat up the bike looks. Pam gives Michael a gift bag, which he thinks is from her at first. She tells him it’s from corporate, and that everyone gets one. Next, Michael is wearing a Dunder0Mifflin bathrobe in his office and talking about how he’s “got two tickets to paradise”–a trip for he and Carol to Jamaica.

#3: Dwight walks in the office holding a dead Canadian goose by the neck. Pam freaks out when he sets it on her desk. He says he hit it on the way to work, and it’s a Christmas miracle. Dwight says he’ll cook it for everyone. People gather around and Toby walks in and says “Dwight…we talked about this…”

Cut to Dwight’s talking head, where he says that he brought a duck in once for lunch, but that people “got attached to it…I guess they didn’t want to see it killed.”

Anyway, Dwight tells the staff that the Schrutes use all parts of the goose, including boiling down the goose grease, thus saving everyone from going to the store and getting their own goose grease. Jim says that this is a win/win situation.

Hope that helps. If someone else wants to go to the trouble of transcribing each clip, go ahead. I’m not that motivated! :)


  1. Angela totally has green in her hair!! I wonder why? No wonder she says that orange, not green, is whorish!

  2. Not only can’t I get them to play, I can’t see them!

    I love that 58 people have already voted for this show that hasn’t even aired yet!

  3. This is going to be one great episode!

    Dwight with the goose = priceless! And Michael’s bike and Angela “the christmas nazi”…. Brilliant! I cannot wait :)

    The sound was totally fine(I have IE), but the “videos” were more like clip shows rather than actual functioning videos, I didn’t bother to watch them again even though they were hilarious, the quality just made me angry.

  4. Yeah, definitely try Firefox, because I had no problems watching the clips. I normally stay away from the Yahoo clips, but I couldn’t resist. It’s gonna be a good one.

  5. I almost forgot … also once you get to Yahoo’s page you’ll need to scroll down to “The Office” clips.

  6. The videos play fine on my Mac with Safari, latest version, apart from the fact they’re not at the good aspect ratio.

    Try to install Flip4Mac ( It replaces the old Windows Media Player (which is no longer supported) and it plays wmv videos within Quicktime. It works far better than the old solution.

    Installing the latest version from Flash (google “Flash player”) will also help.

  7. I didn’t see any orange on Phyllis. It just looked like a brown dress with some other colors.

    I’m definitely excited to see the show, but the clips didn’t do much for me. I used Firefox and it was also like a clip show for me. I can’t believe we still have over a week to wait!

  8. yep. mozilla’s the way to go for viewing. and pam looks so pretty! she’s really workin’ it since jim came back. speaking of jim coming back, he’s wearing white again! yay! (please tell me i’m not the only one noting this)

  9. I got the clips to work fine on my windows pc. Either way, it looks like a great episode. I’m also wondering why Pam didn’t back up Karen, but then again, I read another
    somewhere that specifically said that Pam and Karen team up against Angela in two rivaling Christmas parties… it’s going to be a great episode. I wonder where the “tonight’s Christmas party” as Michael said, is going to be held?!

  10. Yahoo sucks major donkey butt!
    My computer rocks and it can’t play the clips

    I want to see the karen clip!!!
