A message from Dwight

SPOILER WARNING! This message and subsequent comments will contain spoilers.

Listen to an important message from Dwight K. Schrute by calling this number:


This phone number, as you may recall, is the one from Dwight’s business card, included in last fall’s Best Buy’s Severance Package.

Tipster: Jörgen


  1. For people who are outside the US and Canada, ie in places where 800 numbers are *not* toll free, can someone transcribe/sum up what you hear?

  2. **SPOILER**

    I can’t actually transcribe it at the moment, but essentially it says that you have reached Dwight K. Shrute, and he is seeking help in looking for the flasher on the loose in Lackawana County. He asks that if you have information leading to the capture and castration of this pervert, press 1. If you ARE the flasher, Dwight is sure you need a friend and you can let him know where to meet you so you can talk. If you would like a Dunder Mifflin catalogue or if you want to order any products, press 2. Oh, and if you’re interested in a sweet red Camaro, he can be persuaded to sell his – press 1 for that too.

    Not exact, but you get the gist.

  3. Here’s a transcription:

    “You have reached Dwight K. Schrute – Commander of the Lackawanna County Anti-Flashing Task Force and Assistant Regional Manager of Dunder Mifflin. If you have any information leading to the capture and/or castration of this pervert, press 1.

    If this is the flasher, let’s talk. You need a friend right now and I can help you. Just tell me where you want to meet and I promise to help you with whatever it is that you need. Thank you and have a nice day.

    Oh, and if you are inquiring about any of our paper products and would like a catalog, please press 2.

    Finally, if anyone–not the flasher–is interested in a kick-ass 1985 maroon Firebird, I could be persuaded to sell mine. Please press 1 for that, too.”

  4. reginaroadie: Yep. That’s what I was thinking, too. Could’ve sworn it was an ’87.
    Maybe he restores them on the side, though. I have a friend that owns a few cars that he’s restored over the years.

  5. That was awesome! I checked it not too long ago and it was the same message it’s always been. Guess it pays to keep calling that every so often. :)

  6. Too bad nothing happens after pressing 1 or 2. It would have been great to hear more Dwight.

    How/why is still Dwight calling himself ARM when Jim is clearly #2?

  7. RE: 9

    A) These little promos/gimmicks don’t always get their facts straight.

    B) Dwight can’t get over the habit of calling himself the ARM.

    C) Jim has been killed by Roy and Dwight inherits the position.

    Oh my, that’s a big spoiler right there.

  8. Maybe when he said it was an ’87 – to Andy, when they were trying to one-up each other – he was lying just to get the upper hand!

  9. too fun! anyone else wonder for just a sec if we were really just calling a long distance Nigerian phone number? ha.

  10. Ok,I’m not sure what I’m doing but everytime I call the #, all I get is a busy signal. I’ve been trying for the last hour or so.

    Is this happneing to anyone else?

  11. the flasher is going to be in the episode after safety training, when Michael took the women to the mall. This was also seen in scarborough country.

  12. Hilarious stuff here! I cannot wait for this episode…or any new episode for that matter. Does anyone else think that Dwight sounds different on the phone??? I did.

    I thought the same thing about his camero and him not being the ARM anymore. Maybe he just thinks that he still is the assistant. He just can’t get over that can he??? Ha ha. Great stuff!

  13. Unfair, I pressed 2 to get a Dunder Mifflin catalogue and nothing happened. I wanted to press 1 just so I could talk to him but I didn’t because I live far away from Scranton.

    PS I’m not crazy I know it’s fictional, but still who would pass up the opportunity to talk to Rainn Wilson as Dwight?

  14. how do you find out about this? clearly, NBC was going to use this as a tie in with the episode

  15. Rayne-

    Normally I know these sorts of obscure things, but who is Jim Mosby??

  16. To Future Mrs. Halpert — There’s a Jim Mosby (Jim Halpert + Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother) who posts on here and other sites.

  17. sorry alison (16), but I have to go with my man House. As much as I love Dwight, House has been my favorite for too long.

  18. Aw, that was fun. I wish I had know about that Best Buy deal! That calender looks so cool :)

  19. That was SO AWESOME!!!!
    I loved it. That episode is one of my favorites!!

  20. I know this is a pretty old post but I just called the number for the first time and got a message from W. B. Jones. I wasn’t really listening because I was disappointed that I didn’t get the Dwight message, but he talks about his heating and air services and then puts you on hold (along with some awesome muzak). After you get off hold, some lady says “Thank you for calling” and then it hung up on me. :P

  21. it rings about 8 times and I got a recording for Tracy Kaski (sp?), offices are closed July 4th to July 8th….you can get her assistant Brittany on her cell phone at 516-398-6950.

  22. Super bummed out. I just tried calling and it’s disconnected. ):

  23. I called that number and it was a telemarketing place. It asked me if I was a m or f 50 years or older. So, I just hung up.

  24. I can’t believe:
    A) I’ve watched this episode 150 times and never thought to call that number
    B) I’m 13 years late to the party
    C) Dwight’s antics make me laugh more now than they did 13 years ago.

  25. lol looks like his hotline for catching the flasher turned into a flasher’s only hotline LOL. NOOOO!! I’m so disappointed. I wanted to surprise my husband with this!! That would have been a HORRIBLE surprise.
