And if you’ve ever done a scene with Steve, you know, you think finally you’re like okay I’m not going to laugh, I’m not going to laugh. And then he improvises and then you’re just like aw crap, here we go, you know.
Ellie: I’s just like effortless and then it just comes out. And yes I think oh I’m fine, I’m like in the scene. And then it’s those improvised lines or looks or whatever, oh gosh, yeah.
I also have a problem — I haven’t done this yet, Angela, and again too much information, I wet my pants a lot when I laugh too hard …
It has happened. I’m shocked it hasn’t happened on set because in improv shows it would happen — this is terrible — but anyway but it is that thing where you’re holding in laughter and it’s like it has to come out.
Angela: I can’t wait now.
Ellie: It’s only a matter of time.
Angela: I have to bite the inside of my lip often. Or you know what I’ve started doing with Steve is I will look at the middle of his forehead and not in his eyes. Because I feel like if you lock eyes with him you’re done.
You’re done, you can’t’ get through it.
Ellie: And he doesn’t ever seem to break. Not that I…
Angela: He rarely breaks. Oscar and him are the two that rarely break.
Angela: And I’ve known Oscar for years, I did a sketch show with him. The guy never breaks. And if they ever break, forget it, put a fork in the rest of us we’re all done.
NBC: Sorry, we have to unfortunately wrap this up. Again be sure to tune into The Office webisodes on March 4 starting at 12:01 am. And all four episodes will be airing there.
