  1. it’s so hard to stay away from spoilers! and then the clip ferguson showed before jenna came out had another spoiler. WHY???!!

  2. Man I wish NBC wouldnt put out spoilers like this. I mean i wanted to see it. But my friend was just watching TV that night and didnt get a warning. Seriously, save the suspense!

    Looks like i was wrong… i thought he was taking a guy friend, like todd packer. but if he was taking a guy friend, he probably would have asked jim or ryan or andy first.

  3. from jenna’s late late show appearance

    they showed a promo and hannah leaves over the break…wasnt happy with michael’s baby at work actions

  4. Did we not get a spoiler a while back that hinted at a Jan & Michael (Man? Jichael?) reunion?
    Anyway, I love it that Jan can’t resist Michael, even against her better judgement!

  5. Looks like Pam is going back to her old hairstyle, which makes me sad. She’s back to wearing the unflattering cardigans again too.

    R.I.P. Fancy New Beesly

  6. Can anyone post a clip of Jenna on Ferguson? Spoilers and all?
    I KNEW it was Jan! It’s going to be a riot!

  7. I’m really surprised that this came as such a shock to some people… Clearly Michael was surprised that the person he invited on the phone with said “Yes”. It just made sense to me that it would be Jan!

  8. I’m with you Kismet! No surprise at all that it would be Jan…the phone call immediately followed the conversation with Jim about going back to the one that broke your heart. For Michael…that’s Jan! :)

    It was all very strongly implied that it would be Jan, imho.

  9. Aww I can’t believe they spoiled that on TV, that sucks for people who didn’t want to know, but it seemed most obvious who it would be. Especially, as mentioned before, the conversation Michael and Jim had.

  10. I really can’t believe Jan would be so unprofessional, over and over! Mr. Gould must have really broken her heart …

  11. Hey, also
    “This is the first any of us at “Gobias Industries” has heard of any land deal.”
    That’s so great, Gobias.
    Anyways, I think it’s important to remember that for the most part, The Office pulls through and I find myself loving everything, and that the “spoiled” parts are usually not even the best in the show.

  12. I didn’t think it was supposed to be a big mystery that he invited Jan. “The Office” isn’t that kind of show – I don’t think they were trying to create a “Lost”-type speculation or anything. It’s a comedy, after all, so we’re the one’s who made it into a big whodunnit, not the creators. But I do wonder what’s up with Jan…sometimes she seems so together and with it, and other times she does stuff like this. Go figure. Perhaps Michael Scott is more of a man than we know.

  13. Here’s how I see it, because I’m not surprised Jan went with him.

    What do we know about Jan? She’s trying to be a professional woman, but broke up with her husband because he didn’t want kids. She wants to be able to embrace her masculine side as well as her feminine side.

    Her husband was insensitive, and Michael was sweet to her. Michael is genuinely interested in what she wants. He definitely cares more about her than she does about him, which is a change for her. So, Jan’s torn between Michael’s sensitivity and her disgust at how unprofessional and inappropriate he is.

    This gives us a little insight as to why Michael’s branch was downsized instead of the idiot guy from the other branch in the Valentine’s Day episode. Jan got burned bad by Michael and Carol!

    A Jan Levinson divided against itself cannot stand!

  14. I can’t wait to see how thrilled Jan is that Michael included that picture in the vacation slideshow. Hilarious.

  15. Callan:

    “If relationship Jan walks into this office, she will kill independent Jan. A Jan divided against itself cannot stand!”


  16. Does anyone belive those episode descriptions from Wikipedia? They seem kinda dramatic for The Office.

  17. Samantha – I know, the Wikipedia synopsis gives way too much information (even though I read it anyway). But, it’s been correct in the past so…… Who is Pam’s surprise guest on V Day?

  18. I’m hoping the guest is Jim…becuase maybe Karen is the one who fails Michael’s “citizenship” test.

  19. there’s a scene for this episode that is shown during Jenna’s interview on the Craig Ferguson show….

    looks like another Stanford member bites the dust

  20. Do you know what Stamford member bites the dust. I can never stay up late enough to watch his show.
