Trivia

Bandit, the cat thrown into the ceiling by Angela, was in fact a prop. If you look closely enough you'll see a real Bandit was then dropped from the ceiling to create the illusion the cat was thrown through the roof. See more »

Goofs

When Dwight reveals to the rest of the office that it was only a fire drill, he says there is no fire, but he did actually start a fire in a garbage can. No one was seen putting it out. See more »

What the hell is this? This is amazing!
28 May 2009 | by ignaciogiriSee all my reviews

What the hell is this was my first impression after notice that this wasn't Lost! Yes, I was looking for the episode of Season 5 Episode 13 of Lost but I made a mistake and I got this episode of The Office.

I knew the show but I never put attention to it, I think I saw one episode and this one. My god, this episode was AMAZING! This worth watch all the entire seasons.

Thanks for my mistake, I found a very awesome show to start to see now. Laugh, laugh and laugh, can't stop. This is episode make me laugh harder like no other time.

Steve Carell was really funny on The 40 Year Old Virgin, but here, is more and more funny. And I want to honored to Ed Helms... my god, that guy is really funny I love him.

So, here I am trying to get all the seasons now, lucky me I have plenty to see now after the ending of Lost :( Watch The Office if you wanna laugh!
