Did You Know?


While taking the bus to the beach, the employees sing Kenny Rogers' "The Gambler." Later, Robert Shafer, who plays Bob Vance, Phyllis' husband, would be featured in a Geico commercial with Rogers where he sings the same song. See more »


There is definitely not a sand-beach at Lake Scranton (a man-made lake, made by a dam, filled with mountain water, with a walking trail around it). This is no way takes away from the enjoyment of this wonderful show, it's just clearly inaccurate for anyone who knows the Lake. It's also about a 7 minute drive from downtown (less than 2 miles, I've walked it). The bus ride certainly suggested otherwise. See more »


Michael Scott: Who's ahead in points?
Pam Beesly: I think they're even. At various times you gave Jim 10 points, Dwight a gold star, and Stanley a thumbs-up. And I don't really know how to compare those units.
Michael Scott: Well, check to see if there is a conversion chart in the notebook.
Pam Beesly: I really doubt it, Michael.
Michael Scott: Please, just check.

Ooo, Pam cares about...herself
30 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

So, all of a sudden, Pam feels that everyone in the office ought to treat her with the respect she feels she deserves.

All the while, failing to accord anyone any kind of respect what-so-ever. Outside of her fave, Jim, of course.

Hey, congrats, Pam, obviously as one of the heroes of the series, you can do no wrong. So congrats on your new found respectability and your mediocre artwork.

If the final season of "The Office" ended with a plague of boils, or an atomic explosion (set by Pam and Jim, of course, to blame on Dwight), well, that sounds like a winner all around.
