so… let's push cardstock this week.

Also what is this?

Tape Recorder.

For what? For recording.

Michael is on vacation and he's asked me to record all meetings and to type up the transcripts.


Uhh Karen - any news from that law firm?

Yeah the deal closed yesterday - it's a six month commitment.

Oh my God.

Dwight what are you doing.


You're not allowed to take off your pants in the middle of the office.

I'm not….

You know what just back off OK – that’s making me uncomfortable.

This is sexual harassment by the way.

Oh my God.

He's got a knife!

I do not have a knife.


Let the record show the Dwight K. Schrute is now completely nude and is holding a plastic

knife to Stanley's neck.

Let the record show that Jim Halpert is a liar.

Dwight Schrute is now wearing a baby's bonnet.

I am not.

Oh Jim Carrey just walked in – Dwight get his autograph for Michael.

Jim Carrey did not just walk in okay?

Dwight what is that on your stomach is it a Muppet Babies tattoo?

Oh my god Karen you’re right – that is Animal from the Muppets.

You can’t see my stomach.

I am now chopping off Phyllis's head with a chainsaw.
