The OFFICE Thursday on Give Me My Remote

The Office Thursday on Give Me My Remote

The last of three Office Thursdays until the end of the season. Hold me. The bright side is that from here on out we only have supersized and supersized-supersized episodes left. Yup, tonight and next week are both 40 minutes and the of course we have the hour long season finale on May 17th. If you’re an Office fan then I can only hope you’ve been crossing your fingers and toes that the rumors about NBC expanding THE OFFICE to one hour each week is true. Come on Zucker…do it…you know you want to.

I thought I would change up this week’s Office Thursday a bit. I’m kind of thinking that since every day is Office Thursday over at Office Tally you are probably caught up on most of the major Office news. So I thought maybe today we catch up on some housekeeping and then move into a little Office trivia. You game? (no pun intended)

LIVE Office Chat TONIGHT…

The Office ChatI’m SO excited for tonight’s Office chat! Actually I can’t wait until right after the chat so I can FINALLY share some fun stories from behind-the-scenes of tonight’s episode. I hope you all can make it. Click here to set a reminder for the Office chat.

Tonight on The Office…Gmail – Inbox
The Office, Product Recall“Women’s Appreciation” (SPECIAL TIME: 8:36/7:36 c)
The staffers are shocked when a flasher victimizes Phyllis. In response, Michael takes the office ladies on a women’s appreciation excursion. Meanwhile, Dwight and his nemesis, Andy (Ed Helms), team up to catch the deviant. (Watch clips from tonight’s episode)

From the desk of Meredith Palmer…
Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer) on The OfficeIn this week’s blog, Kate takes us behind the scene of “Women’s Appreciation” and tells us why this was one of her favorite episode to shoot. She mentions something about getting to spend a lot of quality time with Steve and the ladies of Dunder Mifflin. But let’s face it – Kate loved this ep because she got to spend some quality time with Tanster and me. Right? (Kate’s Blog)

A Little Office Trivia…
jim-pam.pngNo, this won’t be anywhere near as difficult as that NBC.com Office quotes game. Just a few little trivia questions to get you pumped up for tonight’s episode. If your a true Office fan then these should be cake. Leave your answers in the comments. Every correct entry will go into a random drawing and the winner will get to choose an item from the GMMR store. We’ve added some new Office-inspired stuff just this week!

  1. Michael once spent a productive day stressing about what to write in someone’s birthday card. Who was the card for and what was the name of the episode in which this happened?
  2. Name three fake diseases given to Dwight in “Health Care”.
  3. What were the names of all the kids that attended Dunder Mifflin’s Take Your Daughter to Work Day, and to whom did each kid belong?
  4. What did Michael & Jim order for lunch when they went to Hooters?
  5. What gift did Ryan originally get during the Yankee Swap?
  6. Michael & Jim performed a karaoke duet to what song?
  7. What was the name of the client that Jan & Michael took to Chilis?
  8. Jim and Pam sent Dwight’s resume to what company in “Halloween”?
  9. Pam and Roy were supposed to be married on what date?
  10. What song did Karen sing at Phyllis & Bob’s wedding?

BONUS QUESTION: How long will it be before Pam gets off her ass and declares her love to Jim who in turn dumps Karen whom we never see or hear from again? (ok, ok…I was just making sure you were paying attention)

More Office Thursday after the jump!!

Summer in the Park with Brian & Angela…
Ok so it’s not technically summer (but it was hot), and it wasn’t really a park…more like the Ritz Carlton. Brian Baumgartner and Angela Kinsey attended NBC’s Summer Press Day last Friday in Pasadena and I was lucky enough to chat with them for a few minutes. I couldn’t get any scoop on the season finale outside of what’s been approved by Greg Daniels (something “big” happens with Michael & Jan, and “questions will be answered”), but I tried.

Angela looked adorable in her strapless dress. I overheard a few people commenting on how cute it was when she walked by. Brian looked very handsome in his suit, but all I could think of was hot he must have been…it was steamy outside.

I first spotted Brian and Angela when I took a little stroll out to the grounds where all the TV shows (Access Hollywood, ET, Extra, E!) were setting up. I was chatting it up with the wondering Jessica from NBC when Brian and Angela came over to say hi. Yeah, I’m not ever going to get used to the idea that Angela Kinsey knows my name – bizarre. I’ve been lucky enough to meet quite a few celebs over the past year, and I feel pretty at ease around them, but something about The Office cast makes me all nervous (which is kind of dumb because I’ve met them all and know how wonderful they are). I was trying to play it cool but I was just geeking out on the inside. The geek out continued later in the afternoon when I ran into Brian and Angela again in the buffet line at lunch. At first I was thinking “dude, don’t talk to them…don’t bother them”, but then I thought “what the hell…I may never get a chance to talk to them again.” We chatted about Dave Letterman and Angela’s recent Oprah appearance. I was one happy chica. Right after lunch I saw Simon Cowell approach Angela. Being the geek that I am I turned to my friend and said “I bet Angela can’t wait to call Jenna to tell her she met Simon.”

All and all it was a good (but very busy) day, but the highlight for me was definitely seeing Angela & Brian…and maybe Hasselhoff…haha!! (Angela’s Summer Press Day Blog)

The Office Video of the Week…
This one is a bit self indulgent since I can’t seem to get enough of this song.

    Please please pretty please will you post the stories you tell on your chat on the website somewhere for those of us who can only watch the show West Coast time and don’t want to be spoiled by logging onto the chat? Or is it still accessible after the fact? I’m really excited to hear about your observations and wouldn’t want to miss anything! I’ll use my telekinetic powers to make Pam make out with Jim if you do. In a field of puppies.

  29. Give Me My Remote on May 3rd, 2007 2:32 pm

    Q4: Jim – Ham and cheese sandwich, Michael ordered a hot dog.

    Q5: A video ipod? Oh wait, that was in secret santa. In Yankee Swap it was the kelly name place.

    Q6: No idea what the song is called.

    Q7: Christian

    Q8: Cumberland Mills.

    Q9: June 10th

  32. Brian on May 3rd, 2007 2:51 pm

    I read a bunch of the replies above before it occurred to me I should try answering the quiz myself first. Oops. Too late.

    Anyway, if I thought the end of the season meant GMMR was going on hiatus, it would be too much to bear. Thankfully you’ll be there, like a drug rehab counselor, to carry us through the dark days of summer (betcha never heard that phrase before) that lie ahead.

    Oh, and I will personally write Jeff Zucker a check for (assuming the voice of Dr. Evil) $100 if he permanently super-sizes The Office.

    Yay! Thanks so much! (And about what I promised vis-a-vis telekinesis . . . I’ll do what I can, but the puppies may not materialize. The making out may not either. But I’ll try. And take credit for it if it actually happens.)

    As for someone’s earlier comment about a big Office trivia game – I would be that Office fans could hold their own against the writers of the show. Greg Daniels asked what he thought were tough questions at the Paley Festival and the audience was filled with people who knew the answers.

    Doh! Forgot the bonus question!! Pam is going to make a move in the season finale, but not cliffhangery, just suggested. Then it won’t be till an episode during sweeps next fall that she goes mad love on Jim. And he’ll be like “Whoa,” smirky look to camera, “little comment.” Cause he’s still going to be kind of jerky to her.

  40. HealthcareHottie on May 3rd, 2007 4:34 pm

    Hooray For Office Thursday!!! It’s been a pretty busy day for me so I really looked forward to this.

    I loved your Brian & Angela encounter story. They look so adorable in that pic.

    Those are some good questions, let’s see if I can tackle them:

    1. The bird-day card was for Meredith and the episode was The Alliance.

    2. Fake diseases are Hot Dog Fingers (my favorite), Government Created Killer Nano Robot Infection, Spontaneous Dental Hydraplosion and Count Choculitis.

    3. Take you daughter to work day attendees were: Stanley’s daughter Melissa, Toby’s daughter Sasha, Kevin’s Fiancee’s daughter Abby & Meredith’s son Jake.

    4. Hooter’s Lunch order: Jim ordered a ham & cheese sandwich and Michael ordered chicken breast, hold the chicken; but then decided to go with a sensible gourmet hot dog.

    5. Ryan originally received a video Ipod from Michael, which he then swapped for Kelly’s name plate and eventually ended up with Jim’s old shirt b/c he really didn’t want anything else and he figured he could always give it to a homeless person.

    6. Michael & Jim performed Islands in the Stream during Karaokee at Jim’s party.

    7. Christian was the Lackawana County representative in The Client.

    8. Jim & Pam sent Dwight’s resume to Cumberland Mills in Maryland. They prefered places that took him outside the state, like Alaska or India, but I guess MD was far enough.

    9. Roy chose June 10th for his & Pam’s wedding date on the Booze Cruise. The date was mentioned again during the Dwight’s Speech episode when Pam, Kelly & Ryan were stuffing invitations in the conference room.

    10. Karen seranaded Jim with “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” by The Police at Phyliss’ wedding.

    Wow, that was fun.

    P.S. I love the cartoons at the top of this blog. I’ll see ya on the chat tonight.
