SPOILER WARNING! Videos and subsequent comments will contain spoilers.

Thanks to Lisa for the tip!

I’ve transcribed some of every clip at The Merger post.

Update: now has posted the videos as well — these might be easier to play. Thanks for the tip, Molly!

Note: I had one heck of a time getting these videos to play successfully all the way through. What finally worked for me was 1) playing it in Internet Explorer on a PC (I couldn’t get them to play at all on my Mac), and 2) setting the player to play at a lower bandwidth. If you have any other tips, please post them in a comment!


  1. It definitely didn’t work in Firefox for me, and I had to set the player for the lowest bandwidth in IE.

  2. I have firefox, but mine played at twice normal speed, and everyone sounded like chipmunks…and it still froze. I don’t understand how it freezes when I have a T1 line. Yahoo has issues. I hope some of you get a few moments of pure office joy before tomorrow night!
    Whoo hoo! Less than 24 hours to go ! :-)

  3. Thankfully, I was able to watch them all. This episode is already exceeding my expectations. Absolutely hysterical.

  4. Thanks for posting the link — much appreciated. I was able to see the videos in both Internet Explorer and Netscape 7.1 without difficulty. Perhaps it’s an opporunity to appease those of us Canucks and others who are green with envy because we haven’t been able to access the Producers’ cut :-)

    Enjoy the show tomorrow!

  5. Well, I’m Canadian too, but the player still suck for me. But I was finally able to “see” them all. Can’t wait for tomorrow!

  6. Worked okay on mine. Don’t worry about it, though, guys, there is so much on there, it’s almost not worth seeing. i.e. it just about shows the whole ep., and unless you want to be spoiled, dont go.

  7. My favorite moment in the previews was the look on Pam’s face after Michael said “Was your Dad a GI?”

    My most cringeful moment in the previews was the look on Pam’s face after Karen put her arm on Jim’s back.

    Oh, and I am looking forward to the fireworks between Andy and Dwight. That should be hilarious.

    Is it Thursday yet?

  8. Those were hilarious. I honestly do not understand why they don’t make a simpler video player because I’ve got a Mac and, although it worked, it worked horribly.

    I’m very excited for tomorrow’s episode and I think this will really expand the show into a more versatile comedy. All of the characters and personalities are finally coming together more fully so that everyone can be more thoroughly involved. It’s going to be great to see how this season pans out.

  9. Wow, mine works perfect and I use Safari. I kind of wish it was the opposite because I’m not very good at resisting spoilers!

  10. argh, i’m feeling a little uneasy about this pam-jim-karen situation already. that clip of pam seeing jim and karen together makes my stomach jump.

  11. I can’t get the page to load at all in IE; I just get a blank page with “done with errors on the page” in my taskbar, and in Firefox/Mozilla, I can see most of the page but keep getting an “Illegal Plugin Operation” error message and none of the videos will play…

  12. Wow, Pam! If looks could kill!

    It looks like Michael and Andy are already best friends, I laughed out of pure shock to see someone actually going along with Michael’s bizarre antics instead of just fixing a blank stare at him!

    For anyone having problems watching on FIrefox, you may have to hit reload a couple of times, but it will eventually work;-)

  13. I love everyone’s ties in this episode! they look really good. (was that random? oh well…) Maybe Jim will get all cocky with double the attention?

  14. so excited about Jim and Pam from the one clip when they first see each other again, totally unsure how i feel after i saw Karen’s arm on Jim’s back, ugh.

    only 11 hours to go til the super episode!
