1. Sometimes there are times when I have no idea how a deleted scene didn’t make it into the show…

    And then there are times like these.

  2. see, that was a great scene and should have been in there….awkward moments are what made this show great from the get go….more awkwardness please

  3. Wow, that was really stupid. Maybe a reference to Back from Vacation with Michael’s pic? If I ever see a Dollarmenuaire in person, I’ll probably kill them.

  4. Wow no wonder they deleted that scene!
    P.S. Matt, I agree with you about meeting a Dollarmenunaire.
    P.P.S. I didnt think it was possible, but my addiction to Office deleted scenes may have ruined my love of FedEx commercials.

  5. Sorry, tanster… :-)
    And yes, I agree with pretty much everyone else, that was a pretty awkward scene. Especially since Toby probably wouldn’t want to see pictures of Oscar and Gil and Oscar probably wouldn’t want to see Sasha’s birthday party. Heh…

  6. I thought I would mention that there are TWO promos, one aired at the 8:50 mark of the Coup and the other aired in the first commercial break of Scrubs. West Coasters be ready!

  7. in all of toby’s deleted scenes he is beyond creepy (think pam with the latte)…glad they left them on the cutting room floor so to speak

  8. you guys are way off on toby being creepy…i think his character is more honest than people tend to like which makes him awkward. that is funny.

  9. tanster, the second promo was around 9:06/9:07. Not sure, I didn’t see them myself, but I’ve been hanging out in the spoiler thread at TWOP.

  10. Ok so I’m in Phx and just saw both promos and they came on at 7:50pm and 8:06pm…The Office comes on an hour earlier here (7:30pm)

  11. I agree that the deleted scene was appropriately left out of the episode. Rather than creepy, I thought Oscar and Toby’s conversation was meant to portray the empty gestures co-workers make, feigning polite interest in each other’s personal lives. It just didn’t come off right.

  12. yes! Jan gets it…it was portryed greatly though i thought….very realistic…..thus making it great

  13. I agree with fleece it out and Jan.

    Toby isn’t creepy, I think he’s just lacks confidence sometimes. I think Jan’s description of this scene was spot on. Have you ever been in a polite “how’s the weather” conversation with someone you have nothing in common with but are forced to be social with (at work or a party, for example) and you run out of things to say? That awkward moment that follows is what we saw in this scene.

  14. I like Toby. He’s one of my favorite parts of the show.
    He just makes you feel sorry for him.

  15. Matt and Big Tuna –

    Totally agreed about the commercials. I’m in advertising, so I fully understand why they have to be there, but still…

    They made me hate Sierra Mist for quite a while too.
