Many thanks to The Office writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky for visiting the OfficeTally Chat Room tonight!
Oh sure, there were some disparaging remarks made about our last OTCR guests, and the conversation turned raunchy around minute 33, but what’s an OfficeTally Chat without a little insanity?
Full transcript available after the jump. Thank you, Lee and Gene! We miss you guys and we miss the show!
P.S. In the following transcript, “leeeisenberg” refers to both Lee and Gene. They are one.
