    Blue Blast!

  2. 63. Alison  

    Thank you everyone for the amazing ideas! We had such a fun Office finale party!


    All my office stuff that I’ve collected over the years with me and my official party sign:

  3. 62. Tina  

    While doing the activities (not during the actual show of course) listen via an ipod to a selection of songs that have been on the show over the years like Sing by Travis (listened to by Jim and Pam while leaving the office in The Client) I will Remember You by Sarah McLachlan (Sung by Andy at the end of Living the Dream) Open Your Eyes by Snow Patrol (used in the DVD Jim gave Pam in A.A.R.M. to reassure her that she’ll always be enough for him) Rainbow Connection (sung by Andy to Pam in a season 3 prank set up by Jim) Love Fool by The Cardigans (Jim and then Andy sang this in a high falsetto to bug Karen in one of the Stamford episodes) and I’m sure there are MANY more. Those are just off the top of my head.

  4. 61. John C. Harrison  

    At your party, be sure to play the Police, in honor of the Police tribute band Scrantonicity.

  5. 60. Joanna  

    How are beets – just in general – not on your food list?!!

  6. 59. Jonathan Fletcher  

    How could you forget mayonnaise and black olives?

  7. 58. Mike  

    For sweet food there’s Baby Ruth(email surveillance) and another game to play is Zombie Soccer(China)

  8. 57. Mike  

    Don’t forget the gabba gool (Mafia season 6) oh and no seafood. lol Love the idea of the banner reading, It is the finale. Hilarious.

  9. 56. Pam  

    “STEAK! Where’s my steak ?!” (Money)

  10. 55. Nazy  

    Hot Tamales
    Coco Leche (The Lover)
    “Fish sticks are not an aphrodisiac. You’re thinking of deer penis.”

  11. 54. Leigh  

    We are going to have a red velvet cake using beets instead of food coloring.

  12. 53. Aaron  

    I spent the last few months rewatching every episode and have created Office Jeopardy! Two complete boards and we’re playing by real rules. Should be a blast!

  13. 52. Missy  

    We are picking up a fudgie the whale cake tomorrow, and cheese balls…not sure what else yet…I plan to hang a banner “it is the office finale…..” outside…and will get brown black and grey ballons, only half full…and tissues..lots of tissues….

  14. 51. Aaron  

    I love this idea! I went out to buy hotdogs, pigs in a blanket, jelly beans, M&Ms, vodka and orange juice! I tried to find samosa, but I think in this country it’s called something ridiculous like “chicken pastry” for the not-internationally inclined people lol. Maybe I can find potato salad.

  15. 50. Nicoleincos  

    Thanks so much, Tanster, for this website! Been following for many years.

  16. 49. Limey  

    “Dos Long Island iced teas, s’il vous plait – bad decision in a glass.”

    I live in Hong Kong so the Office will air Friday morning for me. There may well be some ill-advised daytime imbibing!

  17. 48. Rhys  

    We will be putting up a banner that says “IT IS THE OFFICE FINALE.”

  18. 47. cm  

    Mexican lemonade!!

  19. 46. Pam

  20. 45. Allison
