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…
