Michael Acts Like “Baby” for Office Staff

Hannah (Breast Pump Lady) is holding her baby by her desk. Pam approaches.
Pam: Oh, she’s absolutely adorable!
Hannah: He.
Pam: Oh, sorry. He’s — he’s dressed all in pink.
Hannah: That’s his favorite color.
Pam: Oh. That’s fun for him.
Stanley walks by and mutters something I can’t understand. Michael approaches.
Michael: Oh, wow, look at that! How cute!
Hannah: Thank you.
Michael: Oh, may I?
Hannah (smiling): Oh, sure.
Michael walks past the baby and gets under Hannah’s desk.
Michael (entertainer voice): Hey, look at me, I’m a baby! I’m one of those babies from Look Who’s Talking. What am I thinking? (laughs) Look at all those staplers! What’s a stapler? I don’t even know, I’m a baby!
Pam, Phyllis, and Martin walk away in disgust.
Michael (continued): Hey, Mom, I’m thirsty! I’m thirsty, Mama! I want some milk.
Hannah walks away.
Michael (continued): And you know where milk comes from! Breasts. (laughs)

Michael Gets Some Bad News

Angela, Kevin, Pam, and Michael are in the conference room on speaker phone with Jan.
Angela: We have a rebate from the Federal Work Opportunity Program and no one knows what that means.
Jan: We get that money for hiring an ex-convict.
Michael: I didn’t hire an ex-convict. Unless they mean Toby.

Andy Asks Jim to Rate “Office” Ladies

Andy calls Jim from his desk by Angela. Jim answers.
Jim: Jim Halpert.
Andy: I am so horny.
Jim turns and looks at Andy.
Jim: Okay, I can’t help you with that.
Andy: Oh, I think you can, Big Tuna. Tell me about that Indian chick, Kelly. She seems pretty slutty. Good for a romp in the sack.
Jim (without looking at Kelly): She is dating Ryan, I think.
Andy: Oh, and I care why?
Jim: She’s high-maintenance.
Andy: Next. How about … (tilts his head toward Angela and mouths her name) Blondes are more fun. C’mon, trust me on that.
Jim (without looking at Angela): Yeah, trust me, that would be fun for no one.
Andy: Okay, fine.
Jim: Okay.
Andy: Pam, the receptionist. Pam. Should I go for it?
Jim turns in his chair and looks at Pam. Pam notices and smiles at him. Jim turns back around with a tight smile on his face and the clip abruptly ends.

Dwight Not a Fan of Ex-Cons

Michael and Dwight are talking in the hallway right outside the office’s interior front door.
Michael: Try to be cool.
Dwight: I am cool.
Michael: Okay, are you cool, really?
Dwight: I’m cool, I’m cool, I’m so cool. Tell me what is going on.
Michael lets out a breath.
Michael (slowly): Um … Martin from Stamford was at one time in prison.
Dwight pauses, then lunges into the office. Michael pulls him back.
Michael: No, Dwight! Be cool.
Dwight (talking head in the hallway): I am greatly concerned about having a convict in the office. And I do not care if that convict is white, black, Asian, German, or some kind of halfsy. I do not like criminals.
Dwight walks to the shelves by Martin’s desk with dollar bills prominently hanging out of his left back pocket. He bends down with his rear to him pretending to look at a binder from a lower shelf while Martin looks on, confused.

  7. That Hannah character reminds me of that pregnant women who sat next to Tim on the original Office. She get’s on my last nerve, I’m glad she sits next to Creed!

    I love Andy more and more each week :) Oh and that cute smile Pam gave to Jim. That’s so adorable. I can’t wait for this episode!!!!!

  8. Man… I can’t get the last clip to load. Thank You – volunteerduty for posting the words!

    However, I just can’t think of what Jim would say to Andy about Pam!! Either: “She’ll string you along and then drop you”, or “Yeah, go for it… here are some things you should say” (and then tell him stupid stuff to say to Pam). Ah… an entire WEEK! I can’t make it!

  9. Three things:
    1st—Jim NEEDS to get his desk back.
    2nd—Love the Angela thing “That would be fun for nobody”
    3rd–Pam is so desprate, and Jim looks so sad to talk about her.

    As you can tell I only watched the Andy/Jim one, and the others I had trouble opening! go figure…can’t wait for next Thursday!

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

  10. I love the show and I have high respect for the writers and actors but Pam’s sadness is depressing me this season when I watch this series. And I don’t mean in a “hurts so good” way.

  11. One way to make all the clips load:
    follow the usual path to watch the first clip. If none of the subsequent clips load after the first, go back to the beginning and start over. When the first is finishing loading or beginning to play again, quickly click on the next clip you want to watch. It should switch and start to play. Unfortunately you may have to repeat the cumbersome procedure for each clip. But it works!

  12. I agree, great summary! Rereading it (without having to wait for those nasty clips to load :) ) makes me think that Andy is much more like Gareth than Dwight. Where’s Dwight’s high sex drive and totally inappropriate comments to the female staff? Once they tone down or get over the Andy/Dwight rivalry (so overplayed in my opinion) maybe they can bring out some better qualities in either.

    I can’t wait until next week – the Dwight/Martin thing was hilarious! He just kept sticking his butt closer and closer to Martin, who was just confused. So funny!

  13. Is it just me, or is Pam dressing a bit like Karen…? Also her smile seemed forced, not really sure why people would like that…

  14. I’m sorry you have to work next week Roni. My office is having our Christmas party the night of the 14th (what you know the same day as Dunder Mifflin’s … LOL)! I’m already thinking … crud … I’ll have to wait until I get home to watch. I’ll be double and triple checking the VCR to make sure its set.

  15. Meredith,

    I’m pretty sure Jim will say something to Andy along the lines of Yeah, go for it… here are some things you should say” and then like you said tell him stupid things to say, because the original spoiler reads something like Jim “coaches” Andy about asking out Pam (or something like that … I do remember the “coaches” part, which they did have in parentheses which to me says he’s “coaching” Andy like he and Pam did with Dwight in regards to Katy, the purse girl and the Season 1 finale.

    BTW, speaking of Katy (Amy Adams) did any of you ever notice how much her & Jenna (Pam) look alike???

  16. I don’t think Pam’s smile is forced at all

    It also seems TOO happy. Very surprised that he’s even looking at her (damn you Ryan!) and hopeful, at that

  17. her smile is one of a desperately in love woman.
    and yeah, Shannon, Katy and Pam did look a bit alike.

  18. I can’t transcribe it perfectly for you, but if you’re looking for just the spoilers:

    Don’t look at these if you don’t want to know!!!!

    1.) Michael acts like a baby. He goes under a desk and does “look who’s talking” with a baby that’s in the office. Everyone walks away.

    2.) Michael gets some bad news. Real quick one where the Accounting staff gets a strange check from a department they don’t know about. Jan tells them they get it for hiring a former criminal. Michael tells her that he never hired one, unless you count Tobey.

    3.) Andy asks Jim to rate the office ladies. Starts off with Andy telling Jim he’s hor*y over the phone. Asks him about the “Indian chick,” and Jim tells him she’s dating Ryan. Andy doesn’t care. “She’s high maintenance,” he answers. “Next,” Andy answers. Andy asks about Angela and then Pam, with Jim cutting away before we hear what he has to say.

    4.) Michael telling Dwight who the ex-con is. Dwight takes off running after him, but is stopped by Michael. He then tries to trap him by leaving several dollar bills hanging out from his back pocket as he continuously bends over to get some books by the ex-con.

    Hope these help. I konw what a pain it can be not to see them.

  19. I think it goes without saying that the Andy/Jim clip is going to keep me in suspense for the next week. Funny stuff. My inner Jam fanatic loves how Jim takes the opportunity to look at Pam. I know Jim is going to tell Andy all the wrong things to say to Pam, but I’m wondering if maybe things will backfire on Jim (like Pam getting mad for him using her for his prank, or even worse, Pam responding positively to Andy’s come-ons)

  20. oh man I seriously cannot wait until next thursday!! It’s going to be a good one;) I dont understand why the heck there are two breaks in between these two new episodes though. Are they trying to kill me??

  21. The Jim/Andy/Pam thing, I’m guessing, will play out with Jim purposely giving Andy bad advice, thereby showing that Jim isn’t over Pam. Of course, Jim will not admit this to anyone and still hook up with Karen. It’s all designed to keep twisting the knife a little more.

  22. Sabrina – concerning Hannah and the pregnant woman from the UK Office: that’s exactly what i said when i first saw her in The Merger! I sure hope she’s not as annoying as that woman, though.

    I’ve just read the descriptions but haven’t watched the clips. I kind of want to have something left to look forward to come Thursday’s episode, though the descriptions are making me very excited about watching it!

  23. Maybe I’m an idiot…but the video tab is gone. It WILL NOT LET ME watch the clips. It always has worked before. Are you sure that it’s the right link?

  24. No, I think you guys are right… I went online earlier to watch the clips again, and they weren’t there anymore. What I think happened was, they put them up too early thinking that the show was going to air THIS week instead of NEXT week, like we all knew. Because they put them up so early, and then realized it, they either took them down because they thought the show had aired already, OR they took them down because they didn’t want to put them up so much earlier than usual… Just my guess!

  25. My guess is that Jim will say – Yeah, go for it! He will pretend he doesn’t care because he’s “seeing someone” now, but really it will eat him up inside.

  26. The video tab was not there when I was using FireFox as my browser, but it was there when I tried to view them using IE. How weird is that?

    Thanks for the recaps! I cannot wait until Thursday. Michael is being cringeworthy again.

  27. Wow … get this … its working again!

    I think they’re just having problems with the site is all it really is.

  28. Mehhh… videos no worky for me either. They don’t even have the play icon next to The Office on the NBC page…
    What have they done?

  29. Found a new link to the clips on the NBC boards. In the lower left hand corner, scroll to “The Office,” wait for the 4 clips to appear, then select the first one, they’ll play in order from there.

  30. Why doesn’t everyone just use quicktime, fer godsakes. Nothing is better.

    I did manage to view the clips and I can really detect Gervais and Merchant in them. Oh, the anticipation!

  31. yahoo Stinks. Just thought it was worth saying. The clips are working just as “wonderfully” as ever.

  32. Lauren, thanks for the link…I finally got the clips to play! I am so excited for the Gervais/Merchant episode!!

  33. A. I love Jim
    B. How random of a thing to hate such as “frisbee based competition”
    C. I can understand the hate of six flags comms. I once had it out for the Olive Garden, if your Italian grandfather comes from Italin why the eff would you take him to the Olive Garden, you people are killing me.
    4. I’m still swooning from Jim’s smile.

    That is all.

  34. Aside from feeling as though I’ve seen the whole shebang for this week and have little to anticipate (but that’s what “spoilers” are about I guess), the “Jim sabotages Andy” clip was great. Ditto the clip of Martin in the break room telling the gang about prison…
    Maldoror, I agree; that Gervais-Merchant wit rises to the top in this one.

  35. I didn’t think there was anything else like that in the world. That man is creeped out. I dont like how he resembles a turtle out of its shell, only for some reason he’s wearing a suit and dancing. That’s just wrong.

  36. It cracks me up that Andy actually believes that Pam likes hunting! Umm … yeah right!! I love Andy, but I swear, he is such a doofus!!

  37. Man, I think this is gonna be a good one. I’ve watched a few episodes of the British version, and it’s too bad they can’t have an extended version of the Gervais-Merchant episode. It sucks how short the show seems. These previews make me feel like I’ve already seen the entire episode! I can’t wait until tonight!

  38. Meredith, I often feel the same way when after I’ve watched the clips (like I’ve seen the whole show), but then I’m delightfully surprised that there are so many scenes that show up in the episode that aren’t made into clips!

    Yahoo shows us enough so that we can get a feel of what’s going to happen, but not so much that we’re completely spoiled.
