– You found a photo from your first table read that you all did? – Oh, yes.
– Oh yes yeah. – Yes, our casting
director, Allison Jones, brought her camera and
she took a Polaroid of us and she gave one to each of us. And I’ve saved mine all these years. – That’s so cool, we do
Polaroids on this show. I love it. It just looks vintage and cool. – I didn’t get one because
I wasn’t there that day. – She hadn’t been cast yet. – I hadn’t been cast yet. – [Kelly] That is so. – I’m okay with it. – Wasn’t it funny though? Aren’t you, Angela, you tried out right, when everyone auditioning, you auditioned for her part, right? – I auditioned for the role of Pam and I went in you guys, and I thought I did so great. And it was a big room. – You did, you got the
job, just a different one. – I got a different job. But, it was a room full of people and there’s a moment where
Michael is fake firing Pam in front of Ryan the temp,
to like pull a prank. And Pam starts to cry
and calls him a jerk. And I called him like a jerk, and everyone started laughing. And I was like, “I don’t
think that was supposed to be “a laugh, I think I missed something.” And then of course, you
see this vulnerable moment that Pam, as much as she
hates that job, she needs it. And Jenna did such an
amazing job portraying that. But, so they said I didn’t get the part because I was a little too feisty, too feisty for Pam. – You were raised a bit in
Texas, so it’s understood. – I know, listen, I’ll call someone a jerk if they’re a jerk. – I’ll call someone something else, yeah. – [Angela] Maybe. – It depends on the moment. – But then they brought me back they said, “hey, we got kind of a judgy,
snarky lady in accounting.” And I said, “OK”. – That call’s amazing. “Hey, you know who you’d be perfect for?” – The snarky lady.
– The snarky lady.
– So would you do a reboot? Would y’all do it? – We talk about this all the time. We wanna do a reunion special. Like a reason that everyone in the office has to reunite for some reason, like a one-time special episode. – Like a movie! Like a reunion movie.
– Like a movie. Yeah, because I think
a reboot would be hard. At the end of the series, spoiler alert for anyone who’s still
in the middle of it, but some of the people
don’t end up staying at the paper company anymore. They move on, they move away. And so to manufacture some reason why we’re all working there
again I think would be odd. But I think there is a reason that we could all reunite in some other way. So that’s what we’re– – We have some ideas.
– That’s what we want. Call us.
– Call us NBC. – NBC.
– Email us. – I think it would be so good. Like I said, it’s just
got such a new life. Like a younger age are getting into these characters, it’s really cool. – And on a selfish level, I would like to work with all those people again. I’d like to have us
all in a room together. – Yes! – It’s such a great
chemistry, great vibe, yeah. – I teared up when I got here
because your security guy, Joseph outside, did security for “The Office” for seven years. We saw him every day. – We gave Joseph a big hug.
– We gave him a big hug. He used to help me when
my daughter came to set. I had like a little, you
know the little pink car you push your kid around
in and it’s really loud, it’s like (imitates clanking). – Yeah, and everyone loves you. – Everyone loves you. I would like push her around, and Joseph would like help me take it out and set it out, and he
was just a sweetheart. But I would love to see everyone again. – It would be amazing.
– We might have to steal Joseph for
that week of shooting, if you don’t mind, we want everyone. – That’s okay, I’m okay with that.
– I’m so stocked. We’re all stoked, everybody loves The Office even four thousand years later. – Yeah. – It’s kind of impressive though like still people are just
now cause the Netflix as well. Like my son he’s 13 and
he just told me last week, he’s like gone through so many episodes. He’s going through the whole things now, he loves it. – Yeah. – It’s like bringing a
whole new life to it. – You know we kind of
crush it at middle schools. (audience laughs) Like really, we do. Like I was touring a middle school and they were like can you
not go in the classrooms cause the kids were like. – [Jenna] They were distracted. – Yeah, middle schools! – I feel like the show is in some ways even more popular then when it was on – Oh yeah. – When it was airing live on NBC and I think it’s because of streaming, you can binge it. You can watch it whenever you want to now, there’s the internet. – There’s the internet! There’s that. – There was no Instagram when we were filming The Office! – Isn’t that crazy? – I think about that
with my career like what has happened in the, you know, the span of like with
social media and everything. – Yeah. – That’s insane but
it’s brought a whole new life to it and it’s such great writing, great characters, it’s just
such a phenomenal thing. So you started a new podcast and basically tell everybody what your Office Ladies is a podcast but tell ’em what you do. – All right. – You go ’cause you’re good at this part. – Every week we watch
an episode of the office and then we break it
down and we tell you all of our behind the scenes
memories, stories, and trivia. Everything we can remember. We reach out to cast
members and crew members and we give you all the scoop. – All the scoop. – We started from the beginning with episode one and we’re going in order. – All the way through. – [Kelly] Wow. – Yeah. – But this week your podcast the episode is about the fire episode right? – Yes! Oh, that was a really fun one because that was the first episode that we shot outside of the offices so we were, it was an exterior shoot. The fire alarm goes off
and we all have to go out to the parking lot and there was this, we’re gonna talk about
this on the podcast. – I know but I just
want you guys to notice, do you see how Jenna is? Here’s the synopsis,
this is what happened . – Yeah, it gives some context. – And then I’m like that’s
the one with the bug, remember the bug? – It’s like so different the personality, that’s why you go together. – So there was this giant bug
that started attacking us. I mean it was very large, it was unusually large . – Listen, it zeroed in
on me, I don’t know why. I think, I don’t know,
maybe because I look less threatening ’cause I’m so short. – ’cause you’re tinier? – I’m tiny, but it kept
like buzzing my head. I don’t know about you, I
don’t like anything by my ear. Don’t get by my ear! – There goes your social life. There goes making out. – Okay, all right, there’s one
person who can get by my ear. – You know what, I’ve
been on stage on tour and they attack me ’cause
I’m in a spot light. So if you’re outside in a
shed tour, yeah they just. And there’s these like
prehistoric ones down in Florida. – That’s what this was! It was from olden times. – I was like is this a dinosaur? – Yeah, it was the size of a Buick. It was like and I got,
we started doing a joke that it was gonna like pick me up and take me away cause
it landed on my shoulder. – I wish I could make that joke. (Audience Laughs) Things I’ll never say. No, but that’s amazing. – John Krasinski does great impressions of people or things or whatever. He’s an amazing impressionist. So he started doing an
impression of Angela being carried away by
the bug and it was like. – It was so funny. – Anyway you guys it was hilarious. Make john Krasinski do the giant bug thing for you when you run into him. – I will make him do it, I will get him on the show and make him, demand it. – Yes, and then make him
do his boom operator. Boom operator, he does
a great boom operator. – And he does a great Muppet. – [Kelly] These are random gifts. – Oh, he does a really good Muppet. – These are random talents. I can not wait to meet him. – I know. – John right now is like thanks ladies. All my bits. – You actually, you found it was from your first table read, right? You found a photo from your
first table read that y’all did? – Yes! Yes, our casting director Alison Jones brought her camera and
she took a Polaroid of us and she gave one to each of us and I saved mine all these years. – That’s so cool! We do Polaroids on this show, I love it. It just looks vintage and cool. – I didn’t get one ’cause
I wasn’t there that day. – She hadn’t been cast yet! – I hadn’t been cast yet. I’m okay with it. – Aren’t you, Angela you tried out right? Whenever you were auditioning, you auditioned out for her part right? – I auditioned for the
role of Pam and I went in you guys and I thought I did so great. And it was a big room. – You did, you got the
job, just a different one. – I got a different job but it was a room full of people and there’s a moment where Micheal is fake firing Pam in front of Ryan the temp to like pull a prank and Pam starts to cry and calls him a jerk and I called him like a jerk and every started
laughing and I was like I don’t think that was
suppose to be a laugh. I think I missed something. And then of course you see this
vulnerable moment that Pam, as much as she hates
that job, she needs it and Jenna did such an
amazing job portraying that but so they said
I didn’t get the part ’cause I was a little too feisty. – You were raised in
Texas so it’s understood. – I know, listen, I will call someone jerk if they’re a jerk. – Ill call someone something else, yeah. – [Angela] Maybe. – It depends on the moment. – But then they brought
me back they said hey, we’ve got kind of a judge-y
, snarky lady in accounting. And I said okay! – That calls amazing, hey you
know you’d be perfect for. – Yeah, the snarky lady. – The snarky lady. You’re both busy moms. I’m a busy mom as well, I get it. But do you ever give each other advice, you know when we go to that dark place? – Well, sometimes. We parent very similarly – Thank goodness! – Yeah, on of the ways
our friendship works is we have similar values in that way. But Angela had her daughter
before I had my son and so there was this period of time where she was a mother and I wasn’t. – That’s real different. – That was, we made it through. But I use to call her
up and I would be like “Ang, meet me out of
margaritas at 10 o’clock!” – 10 o’clock? – No, momma’s in bed. – Momma’s been in bed four hours like what are you talking about? I was like Jenna I haven’t
had a margarita in two years. – Well that’s you first problem. (audience laughs) I mean. – I corrected that but I was
in the weeds for a little bit. – You can make a margarita at home. No, but have your kids
seen The Office yet? Do they watch it right now? – Mine have not. Mine are still, I have an eight year
old and a five year old. – [Kelly] Oh, okay. – And my kids hadn’t seen it either, except this year they’re in fifth grade. Two of them are in fifth
grade and all their friends watched it over the summer
and so my mom was like, I mean my daughter was like, mom can I please finally watch The Office? And I was like okay and I was at the time watching Healthcare for the podcast and I was like why don’t
you watch Healthcare and she was like mom,
what’s an anal fissure? (audience laughs) – Oh my god, I love this conversaton. – [Angela] And I was like – Is that when you say go ask your dad? – Well no, I was just like it’s a real, and she goes is that real? I was like yes. Um, fast forward. So, I don’t know, so yeah
she’s watching The Office now. It’s not all anal fissures. (audience laughs) – Its not. – It’s not. – So out of all, it’s not! So out of all the episodes what scene was, for each of you, was the hardest to shoot? – We were talking about this
because I mean there’s hardest, emotionally hardest because
we were laughing so hard so, where should we start? – I think hardest because we were laughing so hard was the dinner party episode. We just laughed our way through that week. We ruined so many takes
the bunch of us on that. Yeah but then hardest
emotionally was just the whole episode where we were
saying good bye to Steve. When we sing to him, when I had my, I mean we were just
crying through everything and when I had my good
bye to him at the airport. That was really rough, yeah. – We were just so teary
all week and Will Ferrell was a guest star that week
and I was standing next to him for a scene and he goes I feel like I’m at like a funeral but I’m suppose to be funny at the funeral. – oh my gosh. – And I was like oh, that must be really hard to be around all of us. But yeah, and then also
there was awkward things that were hard ’cause they were awkward like I had to toss a cat into a ceiling. – [Kelly] You really did toss a cat? Like a real cat? – [Angela] I mean, look at that. Oh no, it was – I mean I remember that but I thought maybe it was a fake cat. – Oh, well there was a – Parts of it were fake. – Well not part of the animal. – No, but I mean parts of the
shot were with a fake cat. – Yes, but I had to like in the scene when like everyone’s going crazy and like Kevin has a copier and he’s like, I had to like take a cat out of a drawer. Which I guess my character’s kept a cat in her drawer all these years. – That’s not creepy at all, fine. – And the cat is huge, this
wasn’t like a little cat, it was like enormous. – It was a heifer. – It was, it was like a heifer. Bless her heart. – [Kelly] Bless her heart. – Bless her heart, she’s a heifer. Anyway, so I had to get
this big cat and then I had to like swing it
and do this whole thing. – And you’re little! – And I’m little! And it’s like (imitates cat meowing) it was like not into it. And then everyone was screaming
so that was difficult. – Or awesome. – [Angela] Or awesome, yeah. – So The Office is coming
to the NBC streaming service right now so
would you do a reboot? Would y’all do it? – We talk about this all the time, we wanna do a reunion special. Like a reason that everyone in The Office has to reunite for some reason like a one time special episode. – Like a movie, like a reunion movie. – Yeah, because I think
a reboot would be hard. I think at the end of
the series I mean spoiler alert for anyone who’s still in the middle of it but some of the people don’t end up staying at the paper company anymore. They move on, they move
away and so to manufacture some reason why we’re
all working there again I think would be odd but
I think there is a reason that we could all reunite
in some other way. So that’s what we’re – We have some ideas. – That’s what we want, call us! – Call us NBC, email us. – I think it would be so good, like I said it’s just got such a new life. Like people are, like of a younger age are getting into these characters. It’s really cool. – And on a selfish level,
I would like to work with all those people again, I’d like to have us all in a room together. – It’s such a great
chemistry, great vibe, yeah. – I teared up when I got here
because your security guy, Joseph, outside did security for The Office for seven years. We saw him everyday. – We gave Joseph a big hug. – We gave him a big hug. He use to help me when
my daughter came to set, I had like a little, you know, the little pink car you push your kid around in and it’s really loud. – And everyone loves you. – Everyone loves you. I would like push her around and Joseph would like help me take
it out and set it out and he’s just a sweetheart. But I would love to see everyone again. – We might have to steal Joseph
for that week of shooting. – [Kelly] That’s okay.
– Here are the top 12
episodes of The Office of all time! Even though it has been off
the air for over half a decade, The Office is easily one
of the most popular shows on Netflix. But sadly, 2020 will be
the last year to watch the workplace sitcom
on the streaming giant, as it is set to move over to NBC’s upcoming online service, Peacock. So we thought it was our duty, nay, our responsibility, to countdown the top 12
episodes of The Office, of all time, before it disappears forever. Unless you decide to sign up for Peacock, or, even worse, actually pay for physical media! Now, these episodes were heavily vetted by a team of Office experts, who carefully weighed
all of the humor, cringe, and classic moments and yes, there was many a hurt feeling. Sorry Stephen, but you and
Scott’s Tots can go to hell. But we did cut through
all of the 201 episodes to find the top 12. So let’s break them down now, starting with number 12, Murder. – There’s been a murder, in Savannah. – In the 10th episode of the sixth season, The office finds out that Dunder Mifflin is on the verge of bankruptcy. While Jim tries to keep everyone working, Michael pulls out a Whodunit party game and forces the staff to
play characters in the game to get their minds off the impending doom. – This plantation, we’re running low on greenbacks. – Not only did Murder
give all of the characters a chance to shine, it
showed us once again, that while Michael may
not be the best manager, Tube City anyone? He does genuinely love his employees, and sometimes that is the best
medicine to a bad situation. Plus, the cold open of
Dwight fighting himself is worth the price of admission. – Groin punch. Hip block, elbow to the gut. – Coming in at number 11, The Surplus. (whistling) – Whoo! – Practically a perfect bottle adventure, this season five episode finds the office with a surplus of 43 hundred bucks, and if it is not spent
before the end of the day, it will be deducted
from next year’s budget. – Why don’t you explain
this to me like I’m five? – This leads to the staff taking sides on whether it should be
used to buy new chairs, or buy a new copier, which has everyone vying
for Michael’s favor. Of course, things only get
worse when Michael learns that he can get a huge bonus
if he turns it back in. Couple the inter-office
politics with the B plot of Angela and Andy trying to set up their wedding venue at Schrute Farms, and you have a recipe for
a perfect little episode that also points out why
you should never buy a coat until you have the money, or eat tiramisu while
talking on the phone. – I am calling- (coughing) – With that, we’re in the top 10! And, to be honest, the 11 and 12 picks were basically just honorable mentions to keep a few of the
producers from quitting. Let’s get to the real gems. Number 10, Goodbye Michael. – T-shirt, idea, good bye stink. – Season seven’s send off of Michael Scott is easily one of the most
emotionally powerful episodes of the entire series. For seven years we have
watched as Michael Scott bumbled his way across the screen, but ultimately he found
his way into our hearts. While he may have made some
super problematic decisions, we’re looking at you, gay witch hunt, usually his heart was
always in the right place, and watching him leave
the show was undoubtedly one of the hardest and saddest moments. In this episode, Michael
quits to move to Colorado to be with the love of his life, Holly. And must now find a way to say goodbye to his pseudo family of 15 years. The humor takes a backseat
for heart, in this outing which hits the hardest during
Michael and Pam’s goodbye. Side note, this is Jenna
Fischer’s real life goodbye to Steve Carell. There are a few gems in the later seasons, but it’s clear that without Steve Carell, the show would never be the same. – Catch you on the flippity flip. – Next up, number nine, Casino Night! – I am going to drop a deuce on everybody. – It’s casino night for Dunder Mifflin, and the warehouse has been taken over to host a charity event. In the episode, we find out more about Creed’s thieving ways, watch
as Michael juggles two dates, learned about Kevin’s band Scrantonicity and witness one of the best
Michael Toby flare ups. – I hate so much about the things
that you choose to be. – But the night belongs to Jim and Pam. As much as The Office tried
to develop the love interests of other characters, the true heart of it was always those two. And in this second season cliffhanger, he lays it all on the line to let the then engaged Pam know how he feels. – I’m in love with you. – What? – Aw! While eventually find out that Jim ends up crashing and burning, there’s no denying that this is the moment that kicks off their
eventual relationship. Also, dinkin flicka. – Dinkin flicka. – At number eight, the season
three episode, The Convict. Following the merging of the
Scranton and Stamford branches, Michael has a whole new group
of employees to oversee. But when it is revealed
that one of the new staffers was previously incarcerated, Michael Scott goes off the rails
trying to defend the office after tales of prison
begin to sound better than working at Dunder Mifflin. While this episode has
it’s fair share of laughs, like when Jim tries to set
Andy up on a date with Pam, it’s a three minute scene of
Steve Carell letting loose that takes this episode
from great to awesome. – I’m Prison Mike. – Honestly, just pause
this video right now and go re-watch this scene. Because nothing we say is
going to do it justice. (upbeat jazz music) – Now, there’s a lot of debate over which holiday episode of
The Office is the best. But we had to settle on one, so we went with the one all
others are measured against. Season two’s Christmas Party
for the number seven spot. – Well Happy Birthday, Jesus. Sorry your party’s so lame. – It’s time for some holiday
cheer around the office, but when the party turns south, after Michael turns the friendly tradition of Secret Santa into Yankee Swap. – Yankee Swap, is like Machiavelli meets Christmas. – And everyone’s personalized gifts end up going to the wrong people as
the staff vie for ownership of the $400 iPod, he decides to violate the company’s policy of no alcohol. – Is this enough to get
20 people plastered? – 15 bottles of vodka? Yeah, that should do it. – Cool, cool, box it up. – And, off the chain it goes. Shots, lampshades, and of
course, a topless Meredith, which is why it made the top 10. – Alright, let’s head out. Sounds good, do you have a coat? – Let’s jump on to our number
six pick, Safety Training. In this season three
episode, the office is forced to go through the annual safety training. – It gonna be zoppity. – But, after feeling emasculated
by the warehouse workers, Michael decides how to show how dangerous life in the office can
be, due to depression. – Depression? Isn’t that just a fancy
word for feeling bummed out? – In true Michael Scott
fashion, it involves a roof, a bouncy house, and him preparing to jump to show the office the
real effects of suicide. – He’s going to kill himself
pretending to kill himself. – Yeah. – While everything ends up for the best, it’s a great episode that shows,
despite all of his antics, that Michael is truly
loved by his staff as well. – You Braveheart, man. – I Braveheart. – We’re in the top five, and what’s this? Another season three episode? That’s right, it’s Business School. Directed by Joss Whedon, this episode is hilariously
split down the middle with it’s A and B stories. As the name implies, one
plot focuses on Michael guest speaking in Ryan’s business class, which basically results
in him tearing apart a student’s book, and
throwing candy bars at people. While the second half
of the episode involves the rest of the office dealing with a bat that got loose in the building. Naturally, Jim uses this to troll Dwight into thinking that Jim
was bitten by the bat and is slowing turning into a vampire. But what solidifies this
episode as a classic is the Pam Beasley sub
plot, where she invites the rest of the office
to her art exhibition, and it’s only Michael who
truly appreciates her art. – Your art was the
prettiest art of all art. – Thank you. – It’s a beautifully vulnerable moment that highlights why The
Office is so much more than just a workplace sitcom. Now, for our number four pick. Some might consider it a cheat, since it was broken up
as part one and two, but it’s basically one supersized episode. Stress Relief. In one of the series’ greatest cold opens, Dwight holds a fire training simulation that goes about as sideways as any training simulation can go. Cats falling through ceilings, Kevin breaking into the vending machines, and of course, Stanley
having a heart attack. – Stanley! Stanley! Barack is president! – Though Stanley survives, it’s clear that after a CPR training
course gone awry, and an attempt at office meditation, Michael is the one causing
the stress in the office. And so he comes up with
the brilliant solution to relieve the tension by
letting everyone roast him. – I consider myself a good person. But I’m gonna try to make him cry. – While everyone has a good laugh at Michael’s expense, he’s clearly hurt by his co-worker’s jabs, and after a day of soul searching, feeding the birds, he returns to awkwardly
dish it back at them as only he could. The whole episode is bananas, but surprisingly
believable and that is why we place it firmly at number four. – Boom. Roasted. – We’re in the top three! And the bronze Dundee goes
to season two’s, The Injury. – I burned my foot! – In a rather insane, but
somehow completely logical set of circumstances, Michael burns his foot after
his George Foreman grill, that he uses to cook
bacon with by his bed, clamps down on it. – I don’t see what’s so
hard to believe about that. – From there, the episode just gets more and more outrageous. From Dwight’s attempt to rescue Michael, where he crashes his car, injures himself, and pukes all over the back windshield, to Michael hosting the
cringiest disability seminar with his special guest,
the wheelchair bound building manager, Billy Merchant. But, the cherry on top is Jim driving both Michael and Dwight to the hospital and using a spray bottle
to keep them in line. All of this adds up to one
of the funniest and silliest episodes of TV. – That’s what she said. – That’s my joke, dammit Dwight. – In the number two spot,
and this was a tough one, but we had to go with
Michael Scott Paper Company. – It’s Britney, bitch. – The whole arc of the Michael Scott Paper Company is one of the greatest story arcs for the entire series. And you should really just
watch all of the episodes, but here’s the too long, didn’t watch. – It’s gonna be mental! It’s going to be mental. – When the new boss, Charles Miner, played to perfection by Idris Elba, comes in to take over Jan and Ryan’s job, Michael decides to quit and
forms a rival paper company, the Michael Scott Paper Company. But even with a dream
team of Ryan and Pam, Michael’s new company struggles as they prepare to host
a pancake luncheon. But after some inter-office bickering threatens to tear apart
the fledgling company, leading to one of the best
screen grabs of all time, the team does manage to pull
through and make a sale, hinting that things might not be so bad for everyone in the long run. – Who would have thought, that the thing that would save
this company would be work? – Like we said though, just do yourself a favor
and watch the entire five episode arc, starting with New Boss
and ending with Broke. It’s basically one long episode. It’s The Office at it’s
best, and it proves again, that while Michael may not
have been the best boss, he was a killer salesman. – Our balls are in your court. – And now, it’s time for the number one pick. Drum roll, please! (drum roll sound) It’s Dinner Party! – That’s what she said! – Easily the best episode of the series, Dinner Party is the
perfect blend of humor, heart, love, sadness and most importantly, cringe. In this fourth season
episode, Michael is finally able to trick Pam and Jim into coming over to his condo for dinner with him and Jan. And from the moment the
two walk in the front door, it is off to the races with awkwardness. You’ve got the Serenity by Jan candles, the highly suggestive
song, That One Night, by Jan’s assistant, Hunter, the reveal that Michael had
three consecutive vasectomies, Jim almost abandoning Pam, the worst game of charades ever, Dwight showing up with
his former babysitter, only to reveal their
relationship is purely carnal. The list goes on, and on, and on, and on, and when the tension
between Jan and Michael finally explode in front
of all of their guests, with Jan killing Michael’s
200 dollar plasma screen TV, well, it’s almost too much. Ultimately, Dinner Party is a train wreck on top of a plane crash in
the middle of a garbage fire, it’s so hard to watch. But damn, if it isn’t one of
the funniest episodes of TV of all time. Which is why it is our number one pick. – Sometimes, I will just stand here and watch television for hours. – And there you go! The top 12 episodes of The Office. Don’t at us, don’t go in the comments and try to justify why
our list is bull (beep) without Robert California or why Niagara deserves to be in the top five. This is the list, and you know it. But what do you folks think? Why isn’t Niagara in the top five? Should a Robert California
episode have made the cut? And, what’s your favorite cold open? (car screeching and thud) Let’s discuss. Thanks for watching! If you enjoyed what you saw, why not give us a like and subscribe? If you want to get notified

the cops leave. How much do they want? $300. What? No. I could get a fish for a five-cent worm. Oh you’re paying way too much for worms,
man. Who’s your worm guy? Nobody steals from Creed Bratton and gets away with it. The last person to do this disappeared.
His name? Creed Bratton. you
(upbeat instrumental music) – Hey, friends, welcome to Game the Game. I’m your host, Becca Scott,
and today we are playing The Office Downsizing Game. Somebody’s getting fired,
and I hope it’s not me. (laughing) Let’s introduce our
wonderful guests: TJ Rotell. – Hello, everyone! Welcome to Dunder Mifflin.
(laughing) – You’re playing Michael Scott. – I am playing Michael Scott. Regional manager, Michael Scott. Best salesman that Dunder
Mifflin has ever seen. (laughing)
– Denise Pantoja. As Angela Martin.
– My cat is awesome.
– That’s true. That’s true, I’ve heard that. Of course, Joy Regullano
as Dwight Schrute. – Hi.
– Click cast. – Yes, I left my potato gun at home, so, don’t worry about me. – So you’re safe, for now.
(laughing) Julia Dennis. Or, should I say Kevin Malone? – A girl is talking to me.
(laughing) – And, of course, Jake
Michels as Jim Halpert. – Good job, Kev.
– Thanks, Jim. – Well if you’ve ever looked to camera, there’s no subtext to it. (laughing)
– I can do whatever I want. (laughing) – All right, boys, seriously, I think that you need to
stop doing that right now, or give me $100. – ‘Cause you’re playing Kelly Kapoor. – ‘Cause I’m awesome, and I’m Kelly Kapoor. All right. The point of this game, you can find out by watching
our ‘how to play’ video, there’s a link in the description below. But, otherwise, let’s just get into it. We all know the rules. There are two teams: there’s team Michael. – The best team. – And team promotion, obviously. So, of course, Dunder
Mifflin is getting shut down. I know, the Scranton branch. Not Dunder Mifflin, just
the Scranton branch. Now, two people, it is rumored, are going to be promoted to corporate, after the Scranton branch is closed. But Michael has a plan. And that plan is figure
out who’s being promoted, and fire one of them
before the branch closes, so that Michael is now the best employee, that gets promoted. And, when he’s there, he’ll make sure the rest
of our jobs are saved. – That makes perfect sense. – Logic, people. – The logic is perfectly sound. – And that’s why you’re
my number one and two. Jim, Dwight. – Kevin, absolutely.
– Kelly, you’re busy playing a game, just know that I’m planning a party and accepting suggestions. – Oh, that’s great.
– Absolutely. How about it’s themed like your cat? – Mint chocolate chip ice cream. – No. – What about a basketball court? – I’ll bring some live chickens. – Yeah, we can play
basketball in the warehouse. – All of these seem like
perfect ideas, to me. Okay. Everybody, except for
Michael, has an envelope. It’s gonna tell us whether or
not we’re getting promoted. It has three incident reports in it. If you have more good, than bad, you’re getting promoted. Everybody has three incidents. So, if you have two that are
green cards that say ‘good’, and one that’s bad, then
you’re getting promoted. If you have two bad, and one good, your team Michael, and you’re tryin’ to figure out who the people
being promoted are, so you can help Michael fire them. – Fire people, to save the company. That’s the way we gonna do it. – Michael, that doesn’t make any sense. – Makes perfect sense, Angela. – Thank ya, Kevin. – Kevin…
– Good job, Kev. – Hey, guys, can we just talk
about things that matter, for a second?
– Kelly… – Do we like my new shoes? – Angela, no one cares about your shoes. – My name’s Kelly.
– My cat has the cutest shoes. (laughing) – Your cat has shoes? I love it. All right.
– Concerning. – Now, we need someone
to be the first leader. That leader will choose
a secret committee. And today’s Monday, of course, so the committee will be
made up of two people. Now, after those
committee has been chosen, they will choose another player and get to see one of
their incident report cards randomly. So, we’ll see what
information we can gleam. Okay, the first leader is: whoever last sent an email. (rustling around)
– Hmm. I don’t send emails, today. – Jake, can you look at your phone? – Yes.
(laughing) – Mine was 9:40 A.M. – Did you get an email?
(laughing) – Oh, I don’t have my
alerts on, for emails. So I have to open it up. – You don’t have your
alerts on, for emails? What kind of employee are you? – Yes, we got it. – Oh, I sent the last email.
(laughing) – What is this, anarchy? – That’s the closest you come
to cheating, in a long time. That’s really good, I like that. – Is it cheating?
– No, it’s not, I said closest.
– That’s a bit much. – Okay, well, I think it was
totally awesome and amazing. I’m going first.
– All right. Before you do, the people
that are on team promotion have to know who each-other are. – Oh, right.
– Oh, yeah. – Okay. Put that there, for now. (clearing throat)
– Very eager. – Everybody close your eyes, heads down. – It’s like heads up seven up. – If you are on team promotion, lift your head and open your
eyes and make eye contact with the other person, on team promotion. (suspenseful music) Hope you’re all done. Okay, five, four, three, two, one. Now, everybody open your eyes. (snoring) – I mean, I had already lifted
my head up, though, sorry. I don’t like the rules.
(laughing) – Sorry, I have–
– But I didn’t open my eyes. – A loaded pretzel.
(laughing) – Okay, Angela. ‘Cause, in case your cat needed you, you need to have your– – Don’t be so judgmental, Kelly. I had my head down, when I needed it down. – You guys, we’re downsizing! – That’s what she said.
(laughing) – Oh, God. – I am gonna have to talk
to my therapist, about this. – Did you just poop?
– I need my cats. (heavy breathing)
– What’s going on, Michael? – Nothing, everything’s fine. – Okay, maybe we should
just read an email. – I’m gonna read an
email, in Kelly’s voice. Why me? It’s from Jim Halpert.
– Oh. – Phyllis blackmailed
Angela, so Michael made (clearing throat)
this is in Jim’s voice. Phyllis blackmailed
Angela, so Michael made me party planning committee head. This is literally the
stupidest thing I’ve ever done. Stop sending me birthday requests. Jim becomes the leader of this round. Dang it. If Jim is not in the game,
the role goes to the player most active, in a committee, at work. The player, so that’s
an out-of-game thing. Whoever’s most active
in a committee, at work. – But Jim’s in the game. I try to actively avoid
committees, as much as possible, so I–
– Def well said. – Is anybody in a committee,
in their work life? – No, I haven’t been on
a committee, in a while. – None of us have normal jobs.
(laughing) – I was in student
council, in high school. – Yeah, I was like.
– But also, let’s be clear, I am planning a party and
accepting suggestions. – Glitter? I do not give suggestions. I just do what I want.
(laughing) You people–
– Glitter, we’re down– – What about a party planning party? – Are worse than–
– See, that’s what I’m talkin’ about. That’s the kind of
outside-the-box thinkin’ that’s gonna save this company. Good job, Jim.
– Good job, Jim. – My cats are better
company, than you people. – Dwight, you can learn
a thing or two, from Jim. (sighing)
– I’d be happy to train you. – Anyway–
– I will have revenge. – Jim, can I ban your committee? ‘Cause I heard Ryan was
gonna be in the committee. – Absolutely. ‘Cause I wanna get things done. Let me read an email, first, though. Right? Wait, that was the email we already read. (laughing)
We’re informing the committee. – I’m available. – No, Kevin, we’ve already–
– I’ve already chose it. (laughing) – Kev, we already chose it, but we’re gonna choose
somebody to look at. Who should we look at? Yeah, we should look at Kevin, right? – Thank you.
(laughing) – Wow,
– All right, Kev. – Kevin, I never knew
you worked here, before. I thought you were fired a long time ago. – I got outta that one. – Oh, okay.
(laughing) Cool, I guess.
– Outta that one. – So yeah, without
revealing any cards to us, we’ll pick one. Which of us do you want to look at it? – The girl.
(laughing) – Wow, Kevin, I consider
myself as an adult woman, but thank you.
(laughing) Why are you smiling,
without your teeth, so much? – Oh my gosh, Kelly,
quit flirting with Kevin and just get it over with.
– I’m not flirting with Kevin! If anyone, I’m flirting with
Ryan, but he’s not even here! – I’m hotter than Ryan. – Flirting is a waste of human resources. Our brain is capable of so much more. – Yeah, you’re right, Toby is a waste. – Hey, Kevin, I found
something in the warehouse, it looks like a sort of love nest. Did you make that? Okay, that’s gonna get you a bad review. – Kevin, I told you about
this, on countless occasions, not to make anymore love
nests, in the warehouse. – What’s a love nest, Kev? – That’s disgusting. – It’s warm and wet.
(laughing) – Go.
– I’d be curious in– – Did you say it? – That’s what she said. (laughing)
– Thank you. – I’m sorry,
(laughing) Oh, Kevin. You’re my favorite. – I just think we should
investigate it, for science. Yeah.
– Right, there could be some endangered species, in there. – The area should be
disinfected and burned. – I will give mouth to mouth. – You’re not wrong, Angela, for once. Yeah. What are you writing? – Kelly said Kevin got a bad review. – I said it because it’s true. I mean,
(laughing) I dunno if anybody’s a
fan of Kevin’s love nest, except for Kevin. – Thank you.
(laughing) – I never thought I’d
hear those three words, in the same sentence. – I’ve asked Jan to join me
there, on several occasions. She has not returned my calls.
– Ugh, Michael. All right, it’s Tuesday, now, and we’re passing the leader to the left. – Well, here’s a question: was I made leader, or was I
made the committee former? Because, if you were
leader, then it goes to her. – Leader.
– I was made leader? – Mm-hm.
– Okay, then, yes, it goes to the left. – Birthday. – Angela Kinsey. As part committee head, I’m in
charge of my birthday party. Presents for Princess Lady,
my very expensive cat, only. She’s better than any cat, or person. Angela must communicate in
meows, until the next day. She may also peek at one
of Dwight’s incident cards. – Oh! – Wow. – Dwight, ya gotta show a card. To meowser, over there.
– Meow. – Princess, what? – Meow.
– That would be Princess Lady. This is a lot of her fantasies,
comin’ true, right now. – And I choose one? Or it’s random? – I think it’s random. – She may also peek at one of
Dwight’s incident cards, yeah. You can know which one
she looked at, as well. – I should look away. (bright uplifting music) – Meow, meow.
(laughing) Meow. – Mm, meow.
– Meow. – We good?
(shuffling around) – Do cats have thumbs? – I dunno.
– Some cats. – Meow!
– Some cats. – I have seen some–
– It’s true! Some cats have thumbs.
– Really? I didn’t know that. – And how about extra of an itch? What are they called?
– A dewclaw. – A dewclaw. Is that d-u, d-u-e? – Or d-u-d–
– D-o, – Dude claw?
– D-o-o. – I don’t know. It’s good to catch prey with.
(biting) – I think it’s d-o, ’cause it’s– – That’s what it’s for. – How they do. All right. So that’s the email, so,
you need a committee. (sighing)
– I need a committee, and I need two people in that committee. Who do I trust?
– Meow. – All I know, is that I’m
probably the most awesome committee member, because
I always bring cupcakes. – I can make my chili, Michael. – Jim, what are your plans, Friday night? – Michael, I think you know. We’re havin’ a committee.
– Okay, yeah, Jim’s on the committee. – All right, that’s two. – All right, Jim, I need your brain, here. This is a crisis situation,
we’re at Dunder five. – Meow.
– Oh, is that where we’re on a system of? Is it five Dunders, or
are there actually– – We don’t have time to discuss this. – Oh my God, do you think Ryan Dunders? – Yeah, that’s a good point. I think we should definitely look at, well, we shouldn’t necessarily
look at Kevin’s, again, because that doesn’t really tell us what– – Should we go to Hooter’s,
first, and discuss this there? – Absolutely, but, maybe not first, maybe after a celebration. – They have really good wings. – Chicken breasts.
– Meow. – I’m sure it won’t be
busy, by that time, anyway. – The wings are stellar. I can attest, to that.
– Focus, Michael! Sorry.
(laughing) – Let’s look at either Kelly’s card, or, since we know one
of Dwight’s, already, because the cat told us
that it was a positive meow, we look at Angela’s. – I feel like this is crazy out of line, and I think you each should
give me a back massage, if you’re gonna target me, like this. – So, let’s look at hers. Yup, yeah. – All right, Kelly. Please show us your reviews. – Wow, this is, I feel so targeted. (gasping)
(laughing) – Meow.
(rustling around) – Don’t want you to know what I’ve done. – Solid shuffle. – Meow. (inhaling)
– Okay, Jim. Suspicious man.
– Hey, good, Jim. – You kind of look like Ryan, so. (snorting) – It’s a bad review. – Not surprising.
– Talked back to a customer. Which, you’re customer service. – Kelly, you’ve been warned about this. – I know, but they insulted my grandmother, when I told
several stories about her. So, I thought that was really rude. – Meow, meow, meow. – My grandmother was a woman of steel. – She was made of steal? – Yes.
– Like actual steel? – We’re like in the steel industry? – It’s also a metaphor,
don’t be ridiculous. – Correction, your
grandmother was a cyborg. – Didn’t she rust? – I’ll let you think about that one. (snorting) Wow, are you writing about me? This is awesome. I feel so important. – Kevin, you’re breathin’–
– It’s like I’m the center of attention.
– Really loud. (laughing) (hissing)
– Oh my God, it’s– – I broke it.
– Meows day. All right, because it’s a new day, Angela can now speak human words. Or choose to, still, just meow. (laughing) – Honestly, that was probably
the best conversation I’ve had with y’all, ever. – Wow.
– Wow. – Just saying.
– I choose to take that as a compliment. – Not that I agree.
– You shouldn’t. – She said it was the best. I’m the best. – Michael.
– Yeah. – Animal policy, from Toby Flenderson. – God, Toby.
– Oh, Toby. – Dogs are not allowed in the office, even when dressed
exactly like a co-worker. The leader of this round
must communicate in barks for (laughing)
rest of the day. – You’ve gotten two
different animal sounds, (laughing)
in one game? – Yep. – It’s all comin’ together, now. Clearly, Angela’s getting fired. (laughing)
– Actually, everything in this email’s dead. – Yeah, they’re different animals, all down the line,
– Has to be in animal sounds. – But they generally get to Denise’s side. (laughing) – Okay, uh–
– What is ruff, Angela? – Angela, the dog,
– Has to float a committee. – Choose three people
to be on your committee. – Dwight, that’s my job. – Just tryna, mainly–
– You get three, total, including yourself, if you want. You don’t have to.
– Ruff. – I think she means she wants to go. – Ruff. (laughing)
– What a sassy Angela dog. It makes sense.
– Ruff. (panting)
– I have beef jerky in my car.
(laughing) – And you haven’t, you
weren’t gonna bring that in, and share it with your
boss, and best friend? – I will, after the committee’s formed. – Ruff.
– Absolutely. – Angela’s a fan of
beef jerky, or dogs are? – Dogs.
(panting) – Ruff. – Angela’s vegetarian.
(laughing) – That’s right.
– Don’t tell Dwight. – Oh, and that’s three, because you’re bringing
yourself, obviously. Great. So, whose card did the
three of you wanna look at? – Well, you’re on the committee, and we haven’t looked at yours, yet, but I dunno if we wanna look at yours. We could look at Dwight’s, again, or another one of Dwight’s. – We could look at your card, Jim. – We could look at mine. Thank you, Kevin. – Jim’s a saint, he emailed you.
– Are you okay, bud? – I’m hungry. Okay, yeah, well, ya know what? Have some m&ms. – Been talkin’ about beef jerky. – I know, I’m sorry, I
shouldn’t have brought that up. I can see you’re salivating, a little. – Kevin, is that because
you’re getting crowns put on your teeth, and
you haven’t had anything to eat, yet? – Give her beef jerky? Yeah, again, they’re
in my car and I can’t, after the meeting. – Open your cards, Jim.
– Ruff. – Open my cards? You wanna see, wait,
we’re all agreeing on me? – Wow, I’m feeling a little left out. – I’m on the committee. – Are you guys having
a committee, in here, that I’m not invited to? – Kelly, I am not, also, in the committee, and I’m very upset about it. – Michael’s not invited, either? – We have a committee that’s
a non-committee, committee. – We should start our own
non-committee, committee. – I think that’s a really great idea. I don’t like being left out of things. – Yeah, well you guys
can go ahead and do that, we’re gonna take the conference
room and figure this out, while you guys have your
sub-committee meeting. – All right, the rest of
us meet in my Sebring, in the parking lot. – Ruff.
– Okay. – Do you say Becca? Sorry, do you say Kelly? Kelly.
– Mary. (snorting)
– Mary, okay. Yeah, we can do Kelly, yeah. We can see another one of hers, again. And especially ’cause we know she had a bad review, so we can
further solidify something. We also have looked at Kevin’s, and we theoretically looked at Dwight’s. – Kevin, please never make
me go to your love nest. Just look at the card, instead. (laughing) – I wanna show me something private. – Kevin, I’ll need the
coordinates to that love nest. (laughing)
– Ruff. – It’s a good review. – I can’t help it, I
occasionally do good things. – Kevin took a long time
to decide what to say. – Ruff. – Reading is hard, math is easy. (laughing)
– Ruff, ruff. – Is that slevin? You and your slevin again? – I’m watching you. – What’s slevin? – Kevin’s magic number. – Slevin. – Yeah, it’s on a lot of accounting forms. It’s causing huge amounts of work. – It has a symbol?
(laughing) Kevin hits the dab.
(laughing) – Wow, Kevin, you just
invented a cool new thing to do with your hands. (laughing)
(barking) – It’s my toupee. We’re twinning, so that’s real. – Oh my God, this is the best thing that’s ever happened to me,
I just have a lot of people writing notes, about me. I’m in every day of
the week’s news report. – Ruff, ruff, ruff. – Okay, Dwight, it’s Thursday, so, your turn to read an email. – I will read said email. From Michael Scott:
toppings, toppings, toppings! Everyone’s favorite day,
is right around the corner. Pretzel day. I hope they have toffee nuts, again. Nobody better cut in line, though. Lookin’ at you, Phyllis. If any player is playing as Stanley, they become the leader of that day. If not, the role of the
leader goes to the player to last have a pretzel. (laughing) (gasping)
– I was at the mall, on Monday, and I went
to Wetzel’s Pretzels. (gasping)
– Did you really? – Ah, you–
– Every time I see it, I’m like, ‘I need to go.’
– First off, hyper jelly that you
got a Wetzel’s Pretzel. – Thank you.
– I love Wetzel’s Pretzels. – Second off, that’s a Friday, but that’s, previous, to Monday. – So, Monday’s only three days away. Yes, it’s the new day, you can peek. (laughing)
– I was like, ‘Wait, real day? ‘Or the day in the,’
(laughing) Oh, boy–
– 24 hours, this game carries through. – Okay, once again, I’m
the center of attention, no big deal. I am so glad I eat so many pretzels. Kelly Kapoor is going to nominate someone to go, in this committee. Ya know what? We haven’t heard from Jim, no, wait, but, so, you’re not in it. Who would I like, – I think that’d be me. – I always enjoy looking
at Jim’s performance. All right, in that case–
– I am the boss. – That’s true. You are, in fact, my boss. Which means it’s awkward,
spending time with you, so I’m gonna pick Dwight. Dwight, I want to look at Jim’s cards, because nobody’s looked at them, yet, and we don’t know anything about Jim. – I agree, wholeheartedly,
with that assessment. – I know he’s my best friend,
and he would never betray me. – He does look at the camera a lot, and I don’t trust him. Princess Lady didn’t trust him,
either, when she came over. – Didn’t, in the past tense. – Princess Lady only visits,
because she has her own court. She holds dominion over, at home. – Well, I’m gonna show this to Kelly, ’cause I don’t trust Dwight. (suspenseful music) – Oh, my. It’s a bad review, and it seems that Jim
put a whoopee cushion in Angela’s chair. – Thank you for announcing that. Uh, yes.
– In her chair, or on it? – That was very uncharacteristic, of me. (laughing) – No, Jim, if you spent as much time messing around at the office, as, no, the other way.
(laughing) – Actually, in this world,
I think we all wanna mess around, at the office. – I wanna mess around, at the office. – Kevin,
– I have a spot. – You have a whole love nest, for that. – Kevin,
– You people are disgusting. – I thought we said
you would never discuss your love nest, again, if I showed you my card.
(laughing) – Having sex at work is gross. – Having sex at work is awesome, and Jan and I will have
sex at work, one day. – Why are we talking about this? – Very unsanitary.
– Michael, (laughing)
– That’s what she said. – I approve of this aspiration. There’s nothing holier than work sex, probably. – Okay. Dwight, you are absolutely not allowed to have sex in the office,
that is completely– – I second that. – Can I have sex in the office, Michael? – No, Kevin. Maybe. I’ll think about it. – Okay, friends, it’s now Friday and that means that Michael
is automatically the leader, because
(drum roll on table) it’s time for the Dundies. – Because I’m the regional
manager of Dunder Mifflin. – That’s correct. So, please, Michael, if you would, shuffle the Dundie cards, read one aloud, and decide who you think is
most worthy of that card. And then we’ll have a standoff. – And the first Dundie goes to, first off, thank you for
all coming to the Dundies, here at this amazing Chili’s. Where business is done. – Michael, you made us. – They have really salads, here. – There is sauce. – In order to get our paychecks. – We actually are on the clock. – Get me some more ice cream.
– I missed it, you missed, again. – And first Dundie is the
‘hottest in the office’ award. – Oh my God, stop, thank you, wow! – And since Ryan wasn’t here, today, because he had a stupid
business school thing, – Really good point.
(laughing) – Give the Dundie to the player that most embodies this award. The player that receives this award is safe in the standoff. – Well, hmm, hmm. If Ryan’s not gonna be here, there’s only one
second-hottest, in the building. And that’s my best friend, Jim. Jim, come on up here, and get this Dundie. – Thank you, Michael. – You’ve earned it, bud.
– Thank you. – I’m not gonna say that I
should’ve gotten that award, but, that’s what I’m, I
shoulda gotten that award. (laughing) – When you’re nowhere near
as attractive, as Jim. – I, admittedly, don’t have
your birthing hips, Dwight. (laughing) – Very few people do. – Too many beets, makin’ you flush. All that beet juice. – We’ve kind of gone on too long without talking about the most
awesome person in the room, so if someone could say
something nice about me, Kelly. – Again, I am planning a party
and accepting suggestions, please feel free–
– Ooh, ooh, – To throw them in the air.
– Make it Kelly-themed! You could just pull out my picture– – Absolutely not.
– Okay. – Well, uh, it’s Friday.
(laughing) We should discuss who we’d like to accuse. – Well, um, – Did anyone ever look at Angela’s cards? – Yeah, I know. – Did anybody ever look at Kevin’s cards? – Yes.
– Yes, we did that on the first day. That was Monday, and it was a good day. (laughing) – Kevin got a bad review.
– One bad review. – He had a bad review day, Kev. – Not my greatest moment. – So, we know that Kev had a bad review, we know that Kelly had a bad and a good, and we know that Jim had a bad. We also know that Dwight had a good. Right, it was a good review?
– Mm-hm, he did. That’s what Angela said, unless– – I said ‘meow’. – You two are in meow cahoots. – Ca-meow?
– I choose my cahoots partners, very carefully. – That’s what she said?
(laughing) – I partner up with no one, here. – That’s also what she said. – Unless Princess Lady,
(laughing) – I also ride solo. – So Jim is immune. – No one can vote for Jim.
– That’s right. – Poppy. – I think it’s between those two, yonder. I guess Angela doesn’t make much sense, because we don’t know anything. – I’ve got a sneaking suspicion,
based on previous events, that Kelly might be up for a promotion. – Oh, really?
– Based on previous– – Is it because I’m the
hottest in the office, – Well, and last time she lied about– – And you couldn’t– – Customer reviews for you,
Jim, you should remember that better than anyone, it almost
cost you your promotion, or your raise, your bonus. – True, she told the truth, did she see mine? Or, who, someone saw might, right? – I saw yours.
– They saw each-other’s. – He told the truth, on mine. I didn’t see hers. Oh, I did see hers.
– Yeah, they could’ve purposefully chosen
each-other, since they saw, and then they said bad reviews. – Me and Kelly, or me and Dwight? – Jim and Kelly, ’cause
they saw each-other’s cards. – Mm. – That’s interesting proposal. Honestly, Jim’s no Ryan. – Bob Vance never trusted you.
(laughing) – I mean, Kevin saw Kelly’s,
Kelly saw Kevin’s, too, so the logic is the same. I don’t know if it tells
anything different– – Kelly saw Kevin’s. – She saw yours, but you didn’t see hers. I’m leaning towards, I guess, still you, unfortunately. Between the green cards,
which you both have, I at least know she has a red. (sighing) – I know, I have a
suspicious-looking face, but that does not always mean I am guilty. (laughing)
– Your nose is too small. Isn’t that what Dwight says?
(laughing) Your nose is too small.
(laughing) – All right, the way
that a standoff works, of course it’s initiated
by Michael Scott– – Michael Scarn.
(laughing) – And, in order to fire someone, there’s going to be a finger
gun standoff, in this office. Everyone is going to
vote for one other player that they think is getting promoted and, if there’s a tie
between those players, then there’s gonna be a second standoff, but you can only vote for
those two players, so. When Michael counts down
from three, or up to three, or whichever way, to three,
(laughing) – I’ll do it, how I wanna do it. – Oh, God.
– I thought so. – I approve. (sighing)
– One, two, three, Michael Scarn! Oh, no. You guys all pointing–
– Okay, so, this is when Kelly reveals her reviews, and I think they’re really awesome, and thank you, Jim, for lying about me. I should’ve only shown
you my cards, later. I’m getting promoted, oh my God! Except, I’m fired, so this is both the best and worst day, of my life. – Whoa, whoa, did I just fire you? You’re fired! – I am a chronic winner,
so I expected this. Mind-boggling. – It’s both the best and
worst day of my life, and Joy almost caught me, when I said, ‘Whoopee cushion IN the
chair’, instead of ON the chair and, instead of
(laughing) responding to you, I decided to ignore it. (laughing) – Oh yeah, no one else picked up on that, I was like, ‘I’ll drop that.’
(laughing) – You just thought she missed that– – I was like, ‘If I say
something about her, ‘and try and defend it, it’s gonna be–‘ – No, I was like, ‘That sounds funny, ‘whoopee cushion in
the chair’, I was like, (laughing)
– ‘Cause you made it up? – Uh-huh.
– Yeah, yeah, I get it. – Also, I made up the
customer service thing, too. – Are you also getting the promotion? – Yes, I was also honored–
– Jim, how could you betray me like that?
(laughing) – I’m sorry, Michael.
– I thought we were friends. – Literally, my betrayal is
doing well at my job, so– – God! – Well, well, well.
– He is not to be trusted. (groaning) Thanks so much, TJ, Denise, Joy, Julia. Jake, you fit in with the J’s, you’re here, all the time, anyway. – I am. – Well, guess we’ll see ya
next time, in the office! We’re on Game the Game. Bye! – Bye.
– Bye! (techno tones)
– We’re framing Toby and running
over Meredith with our car. That’s right. It’s The Office Downsizing
game from Spin Master. (funky pop music) – This Dunder Mifflin Deduction
Mystery pits five to ten players divided into two
factions against each other in an effort to get
Michael to fire someone from the other team. The Scranton branch is getting
shut down and some people are being promoted to corporate
while others and Michael are getting laid off. If Michael and his allies can
fire one of the soon-to-be promoted employees they win. If Michael fires one of the
soon-to-be laid off anyway employees the promotion team wins. Setup begins with assigning id cards. – [Host] Depending on the
number of players in the game, pull that many id cards, one
of which must be Michael. Shuffle them face down and
give one to each player, who then reveals it and
takes the matching character attribute card. Next, pull out one envelope
for each player except Michael. These will determine secretly
which team everyone is assigned to. First, consult the team
breakdown table in the rule book and for each player on team
promotion fill one envelope with two green incident cards
and one red incident card. Fill the remaining envelopes
with two red incident cards and one green incident card. These will be for team Michael. Shuffle the filled envelopes
and give one to each player except Michael. Everyone looks at their
incident cards privately to determine their team. Next, the player who last
sent an email in real life is the first leader who takes
the dry-erase marker. Leadership will move
clockwise during game play. Finally, before game play
begins all players must close their eyes. On the leaders count of three
the players on team promotion, two green and one red
card, open their eyes and reveal themselves to each other. The leader waits five seconds
or so, has everyone close their eyes again, counts to
three, and everyone opens their eyes. Now you’re ready to play. Game play occurs over five rounds. Each labeled by the American work week: Mon, Tues, Wed, Thurs, Fri. On Monday through Thursday
the leader is in charge of reading an email card,
resolving its’ effect, and then forming a secret committee for that day. Shuffle the email cards and create a deck in the center of the table. First up, the leader reads the
top email card from the deck. These cards have various
effects including changing the leader, allowing players
to peak in envelopes, and more. After resolving its’ effects
the leader must pick players to form the secret committee. Based on the committee members’
table consult the columns for number of players, and day
of the week to determine how many players to choose. Once formed, the committee
chooses one player whose card they will investigate. The chosen player allows a
committee member to look at one of their incident cards at random. The committee member
announces to the group the card they’ve viewed. Either green or red. And records it on the calendar. Obviously the secret committee
member doesn’t have to tell the truth. Game play continues Monday
through Thursday until it’s the end of the week with Friday. On Friday, we have the Dundee awards. Michael automatically becomes
the leader and draws a Dundee card. Giving it to the player
he finds most deserving. Dundee cards award a perk or
disadvantage for the end game. Players now deliberate on who they think is on team promotion. Michael chooses when
this deliberation ends. Then he initiates a finger
gun standoff to decide who he wants fired. Michael counts to three and
all the players point both their finger guns at a player
they suspect of being on the promoted team. If it’s a tie there’s another
standoff, pointing finger guns at only the players involved in the tie. Michael is the ultimate
tie-breaker if needed. The selected player is fired
and must reveal all of their incident cards. If they were on team promotion
then team Michael wins. If they were on team Michael
then team promotion wins. And that’s The Office Downsizing game. I’m Becca Scott and I
can do this all day long. That’s why she said. You can watch me and my
friends play this game and other awesome games on Game The Game right here on Geek and Sundry. See ya there. (funky pop music)
I’m too depressed to save the big game Billy. I’m gonna cheer you up only ways. I know house. Hey kid Hit G 9 on the jukebox no Billy I haven’t done that dance since my wife died There’s a whole crowd of people out there who need to learn If doing the Scarn is gay, then I’m the biggest queer on Earth I’m sorry. I’m really really sorry. I think I was just relieved to see that Michael Scott is talking us back Yeah, Michael the movies amazing. It’s like one of the best movies. I’ve ever seen in my life You should enter it in festivals or carnivals Well, that’s pretty good reaction be cool, right Did you like it? Did you like that? wait No, it’s not good enough. It’s not good enough some people are really popping on-screen You
Don’t worry Kelly we’ll be Training you first. Kelly’s Training Us? This day is Bananas B-a-n-a-n-a-s! This day is Bananas, B-a-n-a-n-a-s! I don’t have a headache. I’m just preparing. Could you scoot over? You’re on my dress. I thought you’re not supposed to wear white to a wedding. I know, but there was an emergency. I look really good in white. Michael wanted me to ask you how to raise your desk chair. It’s the lever on the side. That’s what I told him, thanks. Oh my God! He is so cute! Would you talk to him for me and see if he likes me? Oh no, I don’t think I could– Oh please Jim? Please, please, please? He’s so cute. I like him so much, and I would do it but I’m too shy Please Jim, please, please, please, please! Please Jim? Please, please, please? God, I’ve learned a lot of life lessons along the way. Your department’s just you right? Yes Jim, but I am not easy to manage. Hey Kelly, what’s up? Nothing. Except, oh my god, Jim. Last night, Ryan and I totally, finally hooked up! Oh, that’s great! I’m really happy for– I know! It was so funny, because we were at this bar with his friends, and I was sitting next to him the whole night, and he wasn’t making a move, so in my head I was like Ryan, what’s taking you so long? And then, he kissed me, and I didn’t know WHAT to say. So I said, Ryan? What took you so long? I mean, I just said it to him! Can you believe– Oh my God Jim, is that embarrassing? I’m embarrassed. No, don’t be Oh thank God. Because I was nervous, Jim. You would not believe But now, now I have a boyfriend! *Excited squeal* I hooked up with her on February 13th. How did Ryan use it, as an object? As an object. Ryan used ME as an object. What has two skinny chicken legs and sucks at ping-pong? Hi Kelly. Guess whose boyfriend it is? I don’t want to guess. I’ll give you a hint. It’s not MY boyfriend. I think it’s a guy over here. I don’t talk trash. I talk smack. They’re totally different. Trash talk is all hypothetical. Like, “yo momma’s so fat she could eat the internet” but smack talk is happening like, right now, like “You’re ugly and I know it for a fact because I got the evidence right there” Your boyfriend is so weak, he needs steroids just to watch baseball. Jim couldn’t hit a ping-pong ball if it was the size of the moon. Were Jim’s parents first cousins that were ALSO bad at ping-pong? If I had created a website with this many problems, I’d kill myself. Do you have a question, Kelly? Yeah. I have a lot of questions. Number one, how dare you? Kelly: I want you to tell me that you care about me, that is what I want! Ryan: Kelly, I’m your boss now! Okay, you can’t keep talking to me like I’m your boyfriend. Oh big strong man, Fancy new whatever! I don’t think you ever cared about me! I never cared about you? Six months ago, Karen Phillipelli sent me an email asking me out, I said no because I was committed to our relationship. Well, I hope you’re still committed because I’m pregnant. And guess what buddy? I am keeping it. Okay. Okay. Do you feel prepared to help me raise a baby? I c– can’t talk about this right now, okay? After work, we’ll go out to dinner, we’ll talk about it then. Okay? We have a date! I never really thought about death until Princess Diana died. That was the saddest funeral ever. That, and my sister’s. That is a great idea. Ultimatums are key. Basically nobody does anything for me anymore unless I threaten to kill myself. This summer, I did the Minority Executive Training Program at Yale. You guys, I’m like, really smart now. You don’t even know. You could ask me, Kelly, what’s the biggest company in the world? And I’d be like “blah blah blah, blah blah blah” Giving you the exact right answer. I’m really excited to introduce you guys to Ryan Howard. He has achieved a great deal in the last week– And perhaps no achievement is greater than his on-again-off-again girlfriend What are you– Who am I? I’m Kelly Kapoor. The Business Bitch. It is important to brand yourself. So I have a couple of things in the works. The Business Bitch, The Diet Bitch, The Shopping Bitch. The Etiquette Bitch. For all their generosity of spirit, they password-protect their wireless?! Try “Jesus.” “Opus Dei” –To the top of the queue. So number 5 becomes number 4. Number 6 becomes number 5. Number 3– Becomes number 2. Etcetera, etcetera. And let’s just say that I just sent back Love Actually, which was awesome. And they sent me Uptown Girls, Which is also awesome. But guess what? Now I want to see Love Actually again, which is at the bottom of the queue! Oh no, what do I do! What I do is this. I go online, I go click click click, and I change the order of the queue! So I can see Love Actually as soon as I want to. It’s so easy Ryan. Do you really not know how Netflix works? Guess I forgot. You’re such a ditz. Ryan, well done: 2 minutes 42 Seconds Additionally Pam, you win $10 because she said ‘awesome’ 12 times and Jim, you win $5 because she mentioned 6 romantic comedies. Everyone, may I have your attention? I would like to introduce you To Mr. Danny Cordray. He is going to be joining us as our new traveling salesman. Say hello to Danny! F*** me. Okay. You know what? Jim! Kelly! Oh my God! I have so much to tell you! Really? Really? Yes. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes had a baby and they named it Suri. And then Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie They had a baby too, and they named it Shiloh. And both babies are Amazing! Great! What’s new With you I just told you… If I get to stay and Ryan is laid off, I will kill myself. Like Romeo and Juliet. The Claire Danes one. What about second base? Like, if Michael said he got to second base with you? Does that mean you like, closed a deal? I mean, that’s a baseball term, right? I-I-don’t know what Michael was… Talking about. I cannot wait to visit Ryan in prison. I’m going to wear my hottest tracksuit and get my hair done and then be like Hi Ryan. And then all the other prisoners are gonna be like “Damn! Ryan, you got a hot ex-girlfriend! Ooh, I would have never treated her so bad when I was outside of prison!” Well it’s you don’t have to do ’em, Meredith, WHAT are you doing? I could be pregnant. Okay, no. Oh, my resolution was to get more attention. Nope, she’s lying. I just need to know where this is going. Hey. I like you. That’s why. But you need to access your un-crazy side. Otherwise, maybe this thing has run it’s course. Don’t you dare walk away from me, Darryl Philbin. You are the most selfish person I have ever met in my entire– Slow down.Think it over. Darryl Philbin is the most complicated man I have ever met. I mean, who says exactly what they’re thinking? What kind of game is that?
