Very entertaining - they get a couple minute trivia things incorrect but they get so much right and it's a very entertaining format. Hope they can stick around!

This is by far the best NBC's The Office podcast. The guys have a great connection and a great knowledge of the office. The trivia at the end is always a nice refresher

Description

A podcast about The Office. The Michael Scott Podcast Company takes a deep dive into NBC’s ‘The Office’. Hosts Sean Roney, Edwin Janes, and Alex Ward look at the moments, arcs, and characters that make up the show’s 9-season run, and why it remains so popular after all these years. For new and old fans alike, the show punches back in to the world of Dunder Mifflin Scranton for another conference room meeting.

Episode Date
159: The Client (Extended Cut)
3507
"So this possible client they’re talking about, actually a big deal. It’s Lackawanna County. Our whole county. And if we get this, they may not have to downsize our branch. And I could work here for years. And years…Years." Have a seat, we ordered an awesome blossom (extra awesome) and some baby back ribs for this episode about The Client! As voted on by our Scott’s Tots on Patreon, we talk about this episode from Season 2 where Michael and Jan meet with a big client, the rest of the Scranton staff have a table read of Threat Level Midnight, and Kevin and Dwight light off fireworks. And before we close the sale we make sure to highlight all of the dry cleaned jeans, famous grilled cheese sandwiches, and Samuel L. Changs that make up this episode. Then we debut a new series within the Conference Room called Performance Review, where we take listener feedback about our previous episode, the Talking Heads draft.

"People say I am the best boss. They go, 'God we’ve never worked in a place like this before. You’re hilarious.' 'And you get the best out of us.' [shows the camera his WORLD’S BEST BOSS mug] I think that pretty much sums it up. I found it at Spencer Gifts." This week we’re drafting Talking Heads!

We look at the documentaries and mockumentaries that preceded it, how the format shapes and frames the show, and the other TV shows that aired at the same time or have aired in the time since. Naturally we also cover all of the moments where we see the crew interact with the characters, including the boom guy, Dwight's candy bar, and that time Andy floated away in the lake wearing a sumo suit.

139: The Party Draft
3431
With the holiday season upon us, we are drafting parties on The Office! We revisit the always-fun draft format to talk about the different celebrations throughout the show, with a rule that we each select one Christmas party to highlight the holiday. In the Conference Room we continue the theme, talking about different holidays we wish had episodes or scenes in the show, and then we close with a quick Ordinary Things check in on the seasonal celebrations we have planned. This isn’t your grandmother's Christmas/party draft episode. Unless of course she’s from the Michael Scott Podcast Company, in which case it’s very accurate.

138: The Convention (Superfan Cut)
3984
"Guess where I am going. I will give you a hint. It is a booze-fueled sex romp, where anything goes. You are correct, sir! I am headed to Philadelphia for the Annual Northeastern Mid-Market Office Supply Convention. And Jim Halpert is going to be coming, which will be fun. Poor little guy. He’s been stuck working under Josh, the poor man’s Michael Scott, as he is known around my condo." We take the train with Dwight and Michael for our episode this week about The Convention from season 3! We talk about the different storylines in this episode, where it fits in the Jim and Pam relationship, and Creed eating Andrea’s cereal. And we also cover all the freedom fries, shots of Midori, and fun jeans that go into this episode. Then in the Conference Room we talk about what Office images we’d want on a puzzle before closing with what candid character moments we wish we could’ve seen. Oh god, I hope it’s urine.

137: Nellie
4102
“I grew up poor. I had little formal education. No real skills. I don’t work especially hard, and most of my ideas are either unoriginal or total crap. And yet, I walked right into a job for which I was ill-prepared, ill-suited, and somebody else already had, and I got it. If you ask me, that’s the American dream right there. Anything can happen to anyone. It’s just random.” This week’s episode is dedicated to Nellie Bertram, head of special projects, friend to Jo Bennett, and the record holder for the three slowest laps ever recorded in a formula one race car. We go through her arc on the show, starting with her interview in season 7's 'Search Committee' all the way through the finale, looking at how and why she can be a divisive character among fans. And of course we talk about all the tacos, destructive shopping sprees (she bought 13 pianos), and prank radio shows that make up her time on the show. Then we head to the Conference Room where we listen to some voicemails before closing with a round of trivia.

136: Proposals on The Office
4777
Pam: "So we just… we wanna help you plan the proposal so that it’s safe and responsible and realistic and doable." Michael: "I had a great idea until you ruined it." Oscar: "Wanna know how to do it? Here’s how you do it. Take her out to dinner. Go down on one knee. If you are in costume, you did something wrong. If at any point you find yourself tying a ring to a dogs collar, stop, and look at yourself." With Alex's wedding just around the corner, we’re looking at proposals in The Office. We talk about all of them, from Jim and Pam meeting halfway at a gas station, to Michael’s disastrous proposal at Diwali, to Dwight yelling at Angela through a megaphone. Then in the Conference Room we hear Alex and Sean’s proposals before closing with a signature round of trivia!

134: Spooked
4342
"I just got a text from Broccoli Rob – “Boo!” Scared me. And then I got this text from Robert California – “Looking forward to Halloween party. Expectations are high.” Scared the s**t out of me." Put on the Miami Heat jersey, set the fog machine to medium, and tell the man in black we say hello—this episode is all aboutt ’Spooked’ from Season 8! With Halloween just a few short days away, we go into this haunted episode, talking about the storylines between Andy and Erin, how Pam believes in ghosts, and the best moments from the costume party. And of course we highlight all of the grown up parties, multiple Kate Middletons, and cinema of the unsettling along the way. Then in the Conference Room we talk about Office costumes sent to us and announce the launching of our new merch store (!) before closing with a Halloween version of our Ordinary Things segment.  Why is it such a shock that we follow the royal story?

133: Did I Stutter?
3003
"It’s like I used to tell my wife, I do not apologize unless I think I’m wrong, and if you don’t like it you can leave. And I say the same thing to my current wife, and I’ll say it to my next one too." Put on your backup glasses and break out the fluffy fingers, this week is about ‘Did I Stutter?’ from Season 4! We break down the clash of the titans, where in one corner you have Michael, and he is mad. And then in the other corner, you have Stanley, and he’s mad. Kevin says that’s about it, but we know there’s more, so we discuss all of the Mad Libs, wet cement, and outgoing voice messages with zing and pep that make up this episode.

132: Toby

"Well, I was in the Seminary for a year and dropped out ’cause I wanted to have sex with this girl, Cathy. Followed her to Scranton. Took the first job I could find in H.R. Later she divorced me. So no, I wouldn’t say I have a passion for H.R." We’ll let you in on a little secret: we’ve been very much looking forward to this episode. Very, very much. We have been steeped in anticipation. Toby has been cruisin’ for a bruisin’ for twelve years, and we are now his cruise director, and our name is Captain Bruisin’. This week is all about everything that is wrong with the paper industry, Toby Flenderson! We go through his role and character arc, highlighting all of the trips to Costa Rica, Chad Flendermen novels, and caprese salads that make up his time on the show. Then in the Conference Room we discuss the new ‘Office Experience’ in Chicago as well as some Office Halloween ideas before wrapping up with a signature round of trivia.  We tried. We tried to talk to Toby and be his friend, but that is like trying to be friends with an evil snail.  Get started right now with a seventy-five dollar sponsored job credit to upgrade your job post at Indeed.com/scott Go to getquip.com/scott right now and get your first refill for free.

Michael: “Here’s my wish. I want you to meet a great guy, and I want you to be happy.” Holly: “Thank you.” Michael: “My wish has come true, incidentally, because you’ve met me, and you are happy.” Darryl: “Clever, Mike.”  With Edwin’s recent move, we dedicate this week’s episode to Employee Transfer from season 5! We start by checking in with Edwin before looking at Holly’s emotional move and in-car breakup with Michael, all while Darryl is driving.

Jim: Ah, hey. Pam: Oh my God. Jim: Hi. Pam: Hi. Jim: Sorry, I forgot Kevin’s extension. It’s a fantasy football thing. This week we dedicate the entire episodes to a listener-submitted draft concept where we each build our own fantasy office. We must fill 11(!) roles with different characters from the show, but the inspiration and purpose of that office staff is up to each host. They say no man is an island. False!

128: The Vance Refrigeration Guys + Listener Voicemails
4395
“Hey, you want to see a really messed up show? Follow us around, come to our office!" With just Alex and Edwin holding it down this week, we decided to focus on two of the most minor characters on the show, Gino and Leo from Vance Refrigeration. We go through all of their brief yet memorable moments in the show from just a handful of episodes. And of course we discuss all of the caprese salad drug deals, deleted scenes moments, and teddy bear deliveries that make up their time on the show. Then we take a round of voicemail questions from listeners, covering things like Office-themed classroom ideas, alternate jobs for Dunder Mifflin staffers, moments or episodes we’d want to be a part of, and one of Alex’s best all-time drops.  If you’re ready to save money on your Doordash orders, DoorDash is offering a FREE MONTH for DashPass right now!

“I would love to live in New York someday. It’s a big dream of mine. Work for corporate, with Jan. It’d be awesome. Go to Broadway shows, eat hot dogs. Scranton is great, but New York, is like Scranton on acid, no on speed, no on steroids.” Michael in New York? Oh, he owns that city. Fuggedaboutit! With Edwin visiting there, this week’s episode is dedicated to Michael Scott in the city so nice they named it twice (Manhattan is the other name). We talk about what New York means to Michael and the show, going through all of the limousine rides, fake Tina Feys, and MISSterious suits that make up those moments.

126: Work Bus
3145
"You mean you flooded my building with dangerous electromagnetic radiation as a prank?" This week, during another late night recording, we set aside the carpeted comfort of Dunder Mifflin Scranton and hop on board Season 9's Work Bus. We discuss the intricacies of this unique setting for Office shenanigans, from Jim's quest for pies, to the pettiness between Andy and Nellie, and eventually to the barren trouser hives of Dwight Schrute.  Then in the conference room we take do our own roll call chant (shabooyah, shabooyah roll call!) before wrapping up with another listener provided trivia.  Our listeners can save 20% on your SimpliSafe security system AND get your first month free when you sign up for Interactive Monitoring service.

"It’s true. I’m having a party. I’ve got three cases of imported beer, a karaoke machine, and I didn’t invite Michael. So three ingredients for a great party." If you have a lot of sensitive emails, they should be deleted immediately, because this week we’re talking about Email Surveillance! Join us for a late-in-the-evening recording where we take a deep into this episode from season 2, in part to highlight the way the documentary crew interacts with the staff and how Angela and Dwight first come together. And of course we talk about all of the improv games, party e-vitations, and karaoke duets that make up this episode. Then we head to the Conference Room where we discuss a unique way to think about female characters in The Office and other sitcoms before closing with some additional suggestions for FMK (Friend, Marry, Kill).

124: Car Scenes
3450
“You can’t fire me, I don’t work in this van!” We expand one of our favorite mailbag questions to a full-length episode, dedicating this week’s episode to Office scenes in the car. We talk about how those scenes set up unique conversations between characters and move the plot forward, how they compare to talking heads, and how the camera angles and positions influence the comedic moments. And of course we eventually get to listing some of our favorite Office-car moments, including trips to the lake, intense breakups while Darryl is driving, and Dwight licking his lips. We then move to an Oridinary Things segment where we discuss car/road trip moments from our own lives, hit the Conference Room for a game of ‘Friend/Marry/Kill’ suggested by a listener, and wrap with trivia.

"Who am I? Am I Michael Scott? I don’t know… I might just be a basketball machine. What’s Dunder Mifflin? I’ve never heard of it. Filing? Paperwork? Who cares? Possible downsizing? Um… well, that’s probably gonna happen, actually." The hand strikes and gives a flower—this episode is all about ‘Basketball’! With our friend and co-host Sean traveling, Alex and Edwin take a look at an all-time classic from season 1 that pits the office staff against the warehouse workers to see who’s going to work on Saturday. We talk about the ideal starting 5 for the office staff, how the warehouse team should utilize Lonny in the low post, and how characters like Gabe and Andy would fare in a similar game. After Michael stops the game because of a foul, we head to the Conference Room where we discuss a theory about Jan and take listener voicemails about mistakes we made, character impressions, and more! "We’re going to the outlet mall on Saturday, so if you want to save big on brand names, and Roy has to work, which he will, because we’re also competitive, you should feel free to come along."

“How do I do it? Raise my daughter, work as director of office purchasing for this hospital and release an album of Doris Day covers on my own label? If I knew I’d tell you" Love to start my day with a hearty bowl of Jan. We dedicate this week’s episode to Jan! She’s the corporate VP, Michael’s lover, Astrid’s mother, and the famed actress behind Jasmine Windsong. We go through her arc and character, discussing all the trips to Jamaica, baby shower renditions of ’Son of a Preacher Man’, and incredibly awkward dinner parties that make up her time on the show. After an extended conversation about Jan, we wrap up the show with a round of trivia all about ‘Money’ from Season 4.  Right now, the title of our podcast is, “Something Weird is Going On.” Colon, “What Did Jan Say?

120: Murder
3551
“There has been a lot of murder and a lot of intrigue. My little heart can barely take it no more." There’s been a murder in Savannah! This week we play a game of Belles, Bourbon & Bullets, dedicating this episode to Season 6’s ‘Murder’, Sean’s all-time favorite episode. We talk about what makes this episode unique within the show, while also going through all of the Tube Cities, evidence based on puns, and Voodoo Mama Jujus that make it so distinct. Then in the Conference Room we answer a great listener question about which Office character we’d like to have as a guest on our podcast, followed by an Ordinary Things segment about games we used as distractions during stressful times. And then of course we close with another round of trivia. There will be food. You leave, you do not get food. What kind of food? Sandwich platters, baby carrots.

"Yeah, I shot a bunch of footage around the office, edited it together on my Mac. I was thinking of entering it into some festivals. Probably won’t. You know, not what this is about." What happens when you put Michael Scott's creativity, imagination, and delusion behind a camera? Find this week as we discuss Michael’s movies! We go through all of the films he creates and screens throughout the series, including productions from both Diversity Tomorrow and Great Scott. We talk about how they reveal his character, how they emulate popular films or videos from that time, and how the rest of the staff responds as his captive audience. Our conference room segment can be described as ‘roasted by memes’, as we talk about an Onion headline and another meme about podcast hosts that give us that ‘boom, roasted’ feeling.

This week we check the inbox and respond to some listener voicemails!

“I would like to invite all of you to come away with me on a journey. [nips mylar ribbon with hedge clippers, it won’t cut, he tears it down] Welcome to the Michael Scott Paper Company!" This week we return to the topic from our very first episode, an arc that shook up The Office and inspired the name of our podcast, the Michael Scott Paper Company. We go through how this run of episodes stands out from the rest of the series, how it challenges major characters like Michael, Pam, Dwight, and Jim, and how the meatball parm is Alfredo’s worst sandwich. And we also cover all of the rundowns, parking lot soccer games, and C-shaped bagels that make up this arc. In the conference room we talk about some listener feedback on our Roy episode and discuss the announcement of a new workplace comedy from Mindy Kaling.

"What did we learn this week? Well, one, thanks to me, my team is much, much faster at coming to decisions than I thought they would be. Number two, never buy a fur coat with a credit card until you absolutely have the money to pay for it. And three, you should know that some people think it’s cool to throw buckets of fake blood on you as you are walking out of Burlington Coat Factory." This week’s episode is dedicated to ’The Surplus’ from Season 5! We talk about Michael’s struggle to please everyone while choosing between a new copier or new chairs, along with Dwight, Angela, and Andy touring Schrute Farms as a wedding venue. Of course we highlight all of the butter sculptures, tuna sandwich kisses, and trips to Burlington Coat Factory that make up this episode. Then we head to the conference room where we choose sides on the important issues of our time: new copier vs. new chairs, chunky vs. smooth peanut butter, Recyclops vs. Belsnickel, and more!

"I have been Michael’s #2 guy for about 5 years. And we make a great team. We’re like one of those classic famous teams. He’s like Mozart, and I’m like Mozart’s friend. No. I’m like Butch Cassidy, and Michael is like Mozart. You try and hurt Mozart; you’re going to get a bullet in your head courtesy of Butch Cassidy." This week’s episode is dedicated to Michael and Dwight, one of the foundational relationships in The Office. We go through all of the watermelon babies, attempted coups, and fights at the dojo that make up their arc, while also talking about how the relationship changes and evolves over the course of the show. Then in the conference room we take a question about Karen ‘Phillip’-elli, hear more of Sean’s ’True Crime Podcast’ voice, and hear about some of things people do while they listen to our show.

Anyway, I’m bored. Come back! We’ve been back in the annex beacuse somebody did something to Michael’s carpet. Now our voicemail is full so this week we’re answering listener questions! Join us as we recast the manager candidates from ’Search Committee’, list our favorite Office ‘car' moments, and brainstorm what was going be on the hip hop mix Michael promised to make for Darryl. We don’t know if you guys figured out who did that to Michael’s carpet yet, but we have a theory that involves an inter-departmental conspiracy. Everybody in the office. We need to talk.

109: The Alliance (Superfan Cut)
3143
"Do I feel bad about betraying Jim? Not at all. That’s the game. Convince him we’re in an alliance, get some information, throw him to the wolves. That’s politics baby. Get what you can out of someone, then crush them. I think Jim might have learned a very valuable lesson." Do we want to form an alliance with you? Absolutely we do. With the season 1 Superfan episodes of The Office hitting Peacock this week, we decided to focus on ’The Alliance’. We go through the birthday card messages, warehouse box stakeouts, and accidentally generous walkathon donations that make up this episode. Then we compare it to the Superfan cut before talking more generally about what those new editions mean for the show. In the conference room we talk about funny moments from Zoom or Teams calls while working remotely, and then we wrap up with another round of trivia. "Look, we can breathe just fine.

108: Andy at Sea
2710
Andy: Where are you going? Pam: Uh, not on a three month boat trip. With our producer Alex vacationing in the Bahamas, we’re dedicating this week’s episode to an arc we're calling 'Andy at Sea’. We go from him embarking on the voyage (and leaving Erin behind) to his early return (“You’re back…and you’re disgusting") and everything that happens in Scranton while he’s gone. We cover why Ed Helms had to miss those episodes, how these developments affect Andy’s overall character arc, and why Dunder Mifflin runs smoothly with him gone. Then we head to the conference room for a listener-submitted MSPC Bingo Card, and then we close with one quick trivia question. If you’re sad that Andy took his brother instead of you on the boat trip, just remember that Bob Marley song—no, woman, no cry. Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

107: The Banker (a.k.a. The Clip Draft)
3303
"It might seem crazy, but since there’s no one left in New York, Michael is Dunder Mifflin’s highest ranking employee. So, that’s where we are." 'The Banker’ stands out as the only clip show The Office, and on this week’s episode we talk about all the HR liabilities, Computron facts, and Office clips that make up this unique episode. That discussion got us thinking about what we’d want in a clip show of The Office, so we follow it up by going to the conference room to fantasy draft our own clips from all 9 seasons. And then of course we finish up with another trivia challenge sent by a listener! We left a copy of Best American Mystery Stories 1999 in Toby’s favorite stall, so yes, I think we bought us some time. Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

106: Angela and The Senator
3127
Angela: The senator and I still have mystery. I’m always waiting to see what he’s gonna surprise me with next. [Oscar chokes on his coffee] This week we look at the love triangle between Angela, the senator, and Oscar. That dynamic spans the last few seasons of the show and plays a big role in the arcs of both Oscar and Angela as the show wraps up. We talk about all the yoga classes with Blake, picnics thrown by the comptroller’s wife (if anyone knew what a comptroller was), and sandwich deliveries for Oscar Martinez that make up that arc. And to think, it’s all because Angela and the senator shared a bale at Hay Place. Then we head to the conference room we take some listener emails, talk about David Wallace’s house going up for sale, and think about what Office locations we’d want to Airbnb in. And then of course we conclude with a signature round of trivia! Got that bimbo? Got it bimbo. Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

Ryan: You have another job? Michael: What I do between 5:30 pm and 1 am is no one’s business but mine and my other business. Jim: Are you a cocktail waitress? What happens when you take the Dunder Mifflin staff out of the office? That’s what we’re looking at this week on the Michael Scott Podcast Company! We go through all of the characters’ second jobs and side hustles, including Michael’s time at the call center, Toby writing Chad Flenderman novels, and Creed selling fake IDs with a laminating machine that he swiped from the sheriff’s station. Then we head to the conference room to build our Office staff to start a new paper company.

104: Cousin Mose
3749
“Mose is my cousin and he lives here. He will always be my best friend. Unless things go well with Ryan today, in which case I won’t hang out with Mose so much anymore.” We dedicate this week’s episode to Mose, the ping pong player, table maker, Schrute Farms valet, and cousin to Dwight. We look at the origins of the character and discuss Mike Schur, who plays him in The Office and went on to help create Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn 99, and The Good Place. Then we focus on how Mose adds to Dwight’s character and provides a unique comedic element with every appearance. In the Conference Room we take some listener questions, and then we wrap with another Ordinary Things segment.

"It is St. Patrick’s Day, and here in Scranton that is a huge deal. It is the closest that the Irish will ever get to Christmas." Erin and Andy go bragh! This week’s episode is dedicated to 'St. Patrick’s Day' from season 6, as it comes out on St. Patrick’s Day in 2021. We go through all the green M&Ms, acapella versions of ‘Cat’s in the Cradle’, and mega desks that make up this one-off holiday episode. Then we head to the conference room, have a quick ‘Ordinary Things’ segment to discuss St. Paddy’s Day traditions, and close with another round of trivia. They say that no man is an island. False! I am an island, and this island is volcanic. And it is about to erupt, with the molten-hot lava of three friends talking about The Office.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

"She was the love of my life. What you and Jim have times 100. Just she…she just left. And I didn’t…I never got closure, you know? I never got closure with her. I haven’t talked to her since. I haven’t seen her since. And I feel like I need to go to Nashua and get closure. I feel like I need that.” “Okay, let’s go" With Alex on the road this week, we’re talking about Lecture Circuit! (Parts 1 & 2). We discuss Michael and Pam visiting other branches, Jim and Dwight planning Kelly's party, the ultimate smackdown between the Nard Dog and crippling despair, loneliness, and depression, and the psychological issues that go behind Angela licking a cat. In the Conference Room we answer a listener voicemail about a new use for Schrute Farms beets, get a correction in the ‘Actually’ corner, and discuss Angela and Jenna on the Conan O’Brien podcast. And then of course we close out the show with a few quick trivia questions. Many happy returns. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

"The thing about Jim, is when he’s excited about something, like the Office Olympics, he gets really into it and he does a really great job. But the problem with Jim is that he works here, so that hardly ever happens." This week’s episode is dedicated to Big Tuna, Jim/James/Jimothy, basically Gumby with hair, Jim Halpert. We start by talking about his function in the show, how he provides exposition through talking heads and acts as an audience surrogate by breaking the fourth wall. Then we look at his professional and romantic arc, followed his relationships with Pam, Michael, Dwight, and corporate. And of course we highlight all the teapot notes, Dwight pranks, arrogance/smudgeness, and looks to the camera along the way. After that, we go to our Ordinary Things segment, where we discuss times we were too early for something, like Michael interviewing at corporate, and then we close with a quick round of trivia.

99: Office Olympics
3363
“Every so often, Jim dies of boredom. I think today it was the expense reports that did him in. And our deal is that it’s up to me to revive him.” How do you escape the doldrums and ennui of the office? If you’re Michael Scott and Dwight go to sign the papers on the condo where your grandkids will someday learn to walk. If you’re Jim and Pam, you host the inaugural Office Olympics. We dedicate our episode to this episode, discussing all of the cathedral ceilings, flonkerton races, and carpenter ants that make up this epsiode. In the conference room this week we talk about Brian Baumgartner’s new podcast that compiles the interviews from An Oral History of The Office, have a quick ‘Actually’ moment, and react to John Krasinski’s SNL Office theme.

98: Robert California
4095
“You see, I sit across from a man, I see his face, I see his eyes. Now, does it matter if he wants a hundred dollars of paper, or a hundred million dollars of deep-sea drilling equipment? Don’t be a fool. He wants respect, he wants love, he wants to be younger, he wants to be attractive. There is no such thing as a product. Don’t ever think there is. There is only sex. Everything is sex. You understand that what I’m telling you is a universal truth, Toby.” He’s the CEO, he’s Bob Kazamakis, he’s the f*cking Lizard King. We dedicate this episode to Robert California, one of the most unique characters in The Office and a defining figure of season 8. We go through all the pool parties, one-man saturnalias, and nature metaphors that comprise Robert’s time on the show. The man speaks of nothing but sex!

"Everybody, I want you to look at Holly right now, and maybe if you look at her deeply enough, you will see what I see in her. And that is that we are all very lucky to have her here.

“You know what, Michael? Let me stop you right there. And leave." WIth that line, Billy Merchant deals with Michael Scott about as effectively as anyone in The Office. And then he correctly diagnoses Dwight’s concussion. This week we wanted to focus on a character who didn’t have a large role in the show, and we chose Dunder Mifflin’s property manager, highlighting all of his moments and appearances in the first few seasons. We also talk about how he could’ve had larger role in the show and what those moments would look like. Then we meet in the conference room to listen to some voicemails about favorite small moments, Jim and Pam, best Michael Scott characters, and more.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

We devote this week’s episode to her and how she’s become more and more of a favorite character of ours over time. We go through all the car accidents, rabies incidents, shaved heads and surprise rehab visits she has during the show, while highlighting all the times she helps out other characters and unapologetically is herself. “Shaboom!

3882
"People always talk about triumphs of the human spirit, well today I had a triumph of the human body. That’s why everybody was applauding for me at the end. My guts and my heart, and while I eventually puked my guts out, I never puked my heart out. And I’m very, very proud of that.” - Michael Scott We take a look at Fun Run (season 4, episode 1), or as it’s known around Michael’s condo, the Michael Scott, DM FM PMC Rabies Awareness Pro-Am fun run race for the cure. We start with the unique circumstances around season 4 at NBC, which influenced the structure and extended runtime of this episode before looking at how the episode starts with Michael eating cereal and ends with him puking fettuccine alfredo.

“I remember when people thought biceps were ‘all that’. They’d dance all night at the discotheque...Core’s critical. There are four tenets of pilates that I live my life by. One—lengthen, two—elongate” Gabe has accomplished so much, career-wise and height-wise, that we devoted this week’s episode to him. We go through his introduction as a corporate liaison, his relationship with Erin, and his metamorphosis into the tall skeleton/ugly pelican/Gabe Lincoln that is a fan favorite.

This week go back to the reception desk to answer some more listener voicemails! Why does Dwight need to work at Dunder Mifflin? What if Jim got the corporate job in season 3? Would Michael and Holly fall in love if thyme under different circumstances?

“Everyone, okay? Uh, I have an announcement. Apparently, in business school, they don’t teach you how to operate a toaster oven. Because some smart, sexy temp left his cheese pita on oven instead of timing it for the toaster thing!” Ryan started the fire, just like The Office started our podcast, it was always burning since the world’s been turning. We focus on ’The Fire’ from Season 2, looking at the best moments, the character snapshots of our favorite staff members, and everyone’s desert island movies. Then we answer a question from someone who's been converting The Office to VHS, and talk about how the medium affects the way we view the show.

“You know, we’re all here, I’ve got the music cued, why don’t I just do my routine without the juggling balls. Prepare to go into the danger zone”. We take a look at Deangelo’s time on The Office, spanning with his training from Michael, his dramatic slam dunk exit, and his brief return in a hospital gown. We look at his best moments and his effect on the other characters before discussing whether he could have had a longer run on the show. This week's conference room meeting asks the big question, ’Team Copier or Team Chair?’ and asks about some different ‘what if’ ideas, and then we close with another trivia challenge.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

Michael: "Zing and pep, see that’s those are the kind of words we’re looking for. Yes, Jim?" Jim: "What about if we did an even newer voicemail message that had even more zing and pep?" Michael: “Now we’re cooking." This week we answer voicemail questions from our listeners!

Gold medals" We cover weddings this week, going from Pam and Roy’s prolonged engagement to Dwight and Angela’s marriage at the bucolic Schrute Farms and all the weddings and proposals in between.

"Here's a non-hypothetical...I'm really happy I'm with Karen." Jim and Karen come together as a couple just as the Stamford branch closes and merges with Scranton. We look at how the love triangle between Jim, Karen, and Pam influences the rest of Season 3 and displays The Office’s ability to create tense, heartbreaking, and emotional moments.

“There are some people who have charm and some who don’t. Guess which type I am? Charm type." This week is all about Kevin Malone in what we’re dubbing episode number Keleven. We talk about the way his character changes over the show and highlight our favorite moments, like winning back parking spaces from the Five Families, eating pigs in a blanket in a blanket, or being mistaken for Ashton Kutcher (to be fair they’re equally handsome, equally smart). Then we talk about different members of the cast playing different roles in the show, and wrap with another listener-submitted trivia.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

We dive in to 'Pool Party’ from season 8 to talk about Erin flirting with Dwight to make Andy jealous, Toby’s dangerous game of pretending he’s a wine aficionado, and Jim trying desperately to go home.

This week we continue our series on the different physical locations at Dunder Mifflin, heading out to the parking lot for a Goodbye Toby celebration, an employee soccer game, and a charity fun run for rabies awareness. We go through all the different moments that occur just outside the office doors and take a deeper look at how that space acts as a buffer between the office and the outside world.

To love the ones that you see. That’s right—it’s Cafe Disco. We revisit one of our original test recordings and one of our first big disagreements about The Office, focusing on a few specific moments to ask if the show ever jumps the shark.

It begins with a secret meeting and a cheese cart, it ends with Dwight’s tie in his coffee cup. This week we take a deep dive into the Co-Manager arc, where Jim focuses on the day-to-day, Michael focuses on the big picture, and Dwight focuses on bringing Jim down. We go through the episodes, koi ponds, and fake college tuition that make up this arc before zooming out and talking about what it means for Jim, Michael and the rest of the Scranton staff.

4009
Pam and Dwight have one of the most unique dynamics in The Office. Their relationship spans the entire show, from fake diseases in ‘Healthcare’ to Dwight’s last talking head in the finale, with alliances, pranks, and Dwight’s concussion in between. We look at how it grows and evolves over the nine seasons, with Dwight turning to Pam for a gentler touch, and Pam turning to Dwight to provide some muscle. Then we answer some listener voicemails, talk about the cringiest non-Michael moments, and finish with the second half of our listener-submitted trivia.

69: Oscar
3879
Oscar stands out in the Dunder Mifflin ensemble for his intelligence, his pretentiousness, and his kiss with Michael. He really fits that old stereotype of smug, gay Mexican. We look at every time he’s been the voice of reason, spoken in a high-pitched southern accent, or had a secret affair with a state senator. Then we head to the conference room to discuss Space Force and Never Have I Ever, list which Office characters we’d want on a star mug, and wrap with a trivia challenge.

68: The Warehouse
3829
We venture down to the warehouse to a different side of Dunder Mifflin, a place where Darryl runs the show and Michael is absolutely not allowed to use the baler. Throughout the show, the warehouse provides an extension of the workplace that allows the characters to interact with the operations of the paper business and provides a stage for events too big for the conference room. We go through all of the C.R.I.M.E. A.I.D. auctions, Casino Nights, ping pong games, and discuss what that place means to the show. Then we recount our favorite celebrity cameos while Michael is talking to a fake Tina Fey, before closing with yet another fantastic round of listener-submitted trivia.
