NEW SHOW: Captive Audience - Love Actually

Join us for the premier episode of our new show CAPTIVE AUDIENCE - where we force feed the movies we love to the people we love. Captive Audience is a reaction video in podcast form. The unique format allows us to keep up with what's new, catch up on classics--new and old--we may have missed, and share films that are near and dear to our hearts. Movies can feel very solitary, especially if we're just watching Netflix at home. But at times the best parts of movies comes from sharing them with other people. It can be laughing in the theater with the rest of the audience, debating with friends, or simply asking, 'So, what did you think?' once the credits roll. This podcast gets at why we watch movies, and as cliche as it may sound, how shared experiences bring people together. To kick things off, we are making Edwin finally watch the decadent and divisive Christmas rom-com LOVE ACTUALLY. Captive Audience has its own separate feed from MSPC, so please subscribe, rate, and review the show wherever you get your podcasts to help us grow! Learn more about your ad choices.

Jim: So this year, for the first time ever, I got Pam in Secret Santa.

[Jan on recording] “Michael, it’s Jan. I guess I missed you. I’ll, uh, be there this afternoon for performance reviews. I hope it’s understood that that will be our only topic of discussion. See you soon.” Michael: First impressions? Pam: Uh, just off the top… I think she’ll be here this afternoon. It’s the MSPC, we guess we missed you, so this week we dedicate the episode to listener voicemails!

179: Jim & Pam

Pam:  "When you’re a kid you assume your parents are soul mates. My kids are gonna be right about that. I guess it also means that sometimes love affairs look different to the people inside them." [Andy is in the background, looks incredulous] This week we talk about one of the most iconic elements of The Office and one of the great romances in TV history—Jim and Pam. We trace their relationship over all 9 seasons, from the pilot to the finale, as they go from will-they-won’t-they to married with children and beyond. And naturally we highlight all of the booze cruises, teapot letters, and French onion chips that make up their relationship. We dedicate the full to this topic, but also touch on other TV romances, comparisons to the BBC Office, and more along the way.  Alright, then it’s a date.  Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

“At its best it was a toxic political club used to make others feel miserable and left out. At its best it planned parties.” We return to one of the early topics in our podcast run, the Party Planning Committee!

"If a baby were president, there would be no taxes, there would be no war. There would be no...government, and things could get terrible.

"This morning the phone guy comes in, and he shows Michael that the phones have a PA function. And then he just left." Sean is out this week, so there’s not the usual balance between 'sane' and ‘others’. Toby has mentally checked out since June. It’s a very dangerous time. The coalition for reason is extremely weak.

140: Todd Packer

"When I was in training, many years ago… not so long ago… I worked side-by-side with a fellow named Todd Packer, and together we rocked the office. Packer and I once spent the whole day with our pants off, and when people noticed, we convinced them that they were crazy." What’s up my nerds? This week’s episode is dedicated to the traveling salesman, alligator nerd, and William Hung fan, Todd Packer. We discuss his different appearances, his negative influence on Michael, and his dramatic exit after lacing a bunch of cupcakes. And of course we highlight all the pregnant nun costumes, ‘gifts' in Michael’s office, and Threat Level Midnight cameos that make up his time on the show.

With the holiday season upon us, we are drafting parties on The Office! We revisit the always-fun draft format to talk about the different celebrations throughout the show, with a rule that we each select one Christmas party to highlight the holiday.

138: The Convention (Superfan Cut)

"Guess where I am going. I will give you a hint. It is a booze-fueled sex romp, where anything goes. You are correct, sir! I am headed to Philadelphia for the Annual Northeastern Mid-Market Office Supply Convention. And Jim Halpert is going to be coming, which will be fun. Poor little guy. He’s been stuck working under Josh, the poor man’s Michael Scott, as he is known around my condo." We take the train with Dwight and Michael for our episode this week about The Convention from season 3! We talk about the different storylines in this episode, where it fits in the Jim and Pam relationship, and Creed eating Andrea’s cereal. And we also cover all the freedom fries, shots of Midori, and fun jeans that go into this episode. Then in the Conference Room we talk about what Office images we’d want on a puzzle before closing with what candid character moments we wish we could’ve seen. Oh god, I hope it’s urine.

137: Nellie

“I grew up poor. I had little formal education. No real skills. I don’t work especially hard, and most of my ideas are either unoriginal or total crap. And yet, I walked right into a job for which I was ill-prepared, ill-suited, and somebody else already had, and I got it. If you ask me, that’s the American dream right there. Anything can happen to anyone. It’s just random.” This week’s episode is dedicated to Nellie Bertram, head of special projects, friend to Jo Bennett, and the record holder for the three slowest laps ever recorded in a formula one race car. We go through her arc on the show, starting with her interview in season 7's 'Search Committee' all the way through the finale, looking at how and why she can be a divisive character among fans. And of course we talk about all the tacos, destructive shopping sprees (she bought 13 pianos), and prank radio shows that make up her time on the show. Then we head to the Conference Room where we listen to some voicemails before closing with a round of trivia.

136: Proposals on The Office

Pam: "So we just… we wanna help you plan the proposal so that it’s safe and responsible and realistic and doable." Michael: "I had a great idea until you ruined it." Oscar: "Wanna know how to do it? Here’s how you do it. Take her out to dinner. Go down on one knee. If you are in costume, you did something wrong. If at any point you find yourself tying a ring to a dogs collar, stop, and look at yourself." With Alex's wedding just around the corner, we’re looking at proposals in The Office. We talk about all of them, from Jim and Pam meeting halfway at a gas station, to Michael’s disastrous proposal at Diwali, to Dwight yelling at Angela through a megaphone.

"I just got a text from Broccoli Rob – “Boo!” Scared me. And then I got this text from Robert California – “Looking forward to Halloween party. Expectations are high.” Scared the s**t out of me." Put on the Miami Heat jersey, set the fog machine to medium, and tell the man in black we say hello—this episode is all aboutt ’Spooked’ from Season 8! With Halloween just a few short days away, we go into this haunted episode, talking about the storylines between Andy and Erin, how Pam believes in ghosts, and the best moments from the costume party.

Then in the Conference Room we talk about Office costumes sent to us and announce the launching of our new merch store (!) before closing with a Halloween version of our Ordinary Things segment.  Why is it such a shock that we follow the royal story?

133: Did I Stutter?

"It’s like I used to tell my wife, I do not apologize unless I think I’m wrong, and if you don’t like it you can leave. And I say the same thing to my current wife, and I’ll say it to my next one too." Put on your backup glasses and break out the fluffy fingers, this week is about ‘Did I Stutter?’ from Season 4! We break down the clash of the titans, where in one corner you have Michael, and he is mad. And then in the other corner, you have Stanley, and he’s mad.

"Well, I was in the Seminary for a year and dropped out ’cause I wanted to have sex with this girl, Cathy. Followed her to Scranton. Took the first job I could find in H.R. Later she divorced me. So no, I wouldn’t say I have a passion for H.R." We’ll let you in on a little secret: we’ve been very much looking forward to this episode. Very, very much. We have been steeped in anticipation. Toby has been cruisin’ for a bruisin’ for twelve years, and we are now his cruise director, and our name is Captain Bruisin’. This week is all about everything that is wrong with the paper industry, Toby Flenderson! We go through his role and character arc, highlighting all of the trips to Costa Rica, Chad Flendermen novels, and caprese salads that make up his time on the show. Then in the Conference Room we discuss the new ‘Office Experience’ in Chicago as well as some Office Halloween ideas before wrapping up with a signature round of trivia.  We tried.

128: The Vance Refrigeration Guys + Listener Voicemails

“Hey, you want to see a really messed up show? Follow us around, come to our office!" With just Alex and Edwin holding it down this week, we decided to focus on two of the most minor characters on the show, Gino and Leo from Vance Refrigeration. We go through all of their brief yet memorable moments in the show from just a handful of episodes. And of course we discuss all of the caprese salad drug deals, deleted scenes moments, and teddy bear deliveries that make up their time on the show. Then we take a round of voicemail questions from listeners, covering things like Office-themed classroom ideas, alternate jobs for Dunder Mifflin staffers, moments or episodes we’d want to be a part of, and one of Alex’s best all-time drops.  If you’re ready to save money on your Doordash orders, DoorDash is offering a FREE MONTH for DashPass right now!

Scranton is great, but New York, is like Scranton on acid, no on speed, no on steroids.” Michael in New York? Oh, he owns that city. Fuggedaboutit! With Edwin visiting there, this week’s episode is dedicated to Michael Scott in the city so nice they named it twice (Manhattan is the other name). We talk about what New York means to Michael and the show, going through all of the limousine rides, fake Tina Feys, and MISSterious suits that make up those moments.

This week, during another late night recording, we set aside the carpeted comfort of Dunder Mifflin Scranton and hop on board Season 9's Work Bus. We discuss the intricacies of this unique setting for Office shenanigans, from Jim's quest for pies, to the pettiness between Andy and Nellie, and eventually to the barren trouser hives of Dwight Schrute.  Then in the conference room we take do our own roll call chant (shabooyah, shabooyah roll call!) before wrapping up with another listener provided trivia.  Our listeners can save 20% on your SimpliSafe security system AND get your first month free when you sign up for Interactive Monitoring service.

If you have a lot of sensitive emails, they should be deleted immediately, because this week we’re talking about Email Surveillance! Join us for a late-in-the-evening recording where we take a deep into this episode from season 2, in part to highlight the way the documentary crew interacts with the staff and how Angela and Dwight first come together. And of course we talk about all of the improv games, party e-vitations, and karaoke duets that make up this episode. Then we head to the Conference Room where we discuss a unique way to think about female characters in The Office and other sitcoms before closing with some additional suggestions for FMK (Friend, Marry, Kill).

124: Car Scenes

“You can’t fire me, I don’t work in this van!” We expand one of our favorite mailbag questions to a full-length episode, dedicating this week’s episode to Office scenes in the car. We talk about how those scenes set up unique conversations between characters and move the plot forward, how they compare to talking heads, and how the camera angles and positions influence the comedic moments. And of course we eventually get to listing some of our favorite Office-car moments, including trips to the lake, intense breakups while Darryl is driving, and Dwight licking his lips. We then move to an Oridinary Things segment where we discuss car/road trip moments from our own lives, hit the Conference Room for a game of ‘Friend/Marry/Kill’ suggested by a listener, and wrap with trivia.

"Who am I? Am I Michael Scott? I don’t know… I might just be a basketball machine. What’s Dunder Mifflin? I’ve never heard of it. Filing? Paperwork? Who cares? Possible downsizing? Um… well, that’s probably gonna happen, actually." The hand strikes and gives a flower—this episode is all about ‘Basketball’! With our friend and co-host Sean traveling, Alex and Edwin take a look at an all-time classic from season 1 that pits the office staff against the warehouse workers to see who’s going to work on Saturday. We talk about the ideal starting 5 for the office staff, how the warehouse team should utilize Lonny in the low post, and how characters like Gabe and Andy would fare in a similar game. After Michael stops the game because of a foul, we head to the Conference Room where we discuss a theory about Jan and take listener voicemails about mistakes we made, character impressions, and more! "We’re going to the outlet mall on Saturday, so if you want to save big on brand names, and Roy has to work, which he will, because we’re also competitive, you should feel free to come along."

If I knew I’d tell you" Love to start my day with a hearty bowl of Jan. We dedicate this week’s episode to Jan! She’s the corporate VP, Michael’s lover, Astrid’s mother, and the famed actress behind Jasmine Windsong.

"Yeah, I shot a bunch of footage around the office, edited it together on my Mac. I was thinking of entering it into some festivals. Probably won’t. You know, not what this is about." What happens when you put Michael Scott's creativity, imagination, and delusion behind a camera? Find this week as we discuss Michael’s movies! We go through all of the films he creates and screens throughout the series, including productions from both Diversity Tomorrow and Great Scott. We talk about how they reveal his character, how they emulate popular films or videos from that time, and how the rest of the staff responds as his captive audience. Our conference room segment can be described as ‘roasted by memes’, as we talk about an Onion headline and another meme about podcast hosts that give us that ‘boom, roasted’ feeling.

This week we return to the topic from our very first episode, an arc that shook up The Office and inspired the name of our podcast, the Michael Scott Paper Company. We go through how this run of episodes stands out from the rest of the series, how it challenges major characters like Michael, Pam, Dwight, and Jim, and how the meatball parm is Alfredo’s worst sandwich. And we also cover all of the rundowns, parking lot soccer games, and C-shaped bagels that make up this arc.

"What did we learn this week? Well, one, thanks to me, my team is much, much faster at coming to decisions than I thought they would be. Number two, never buy a fur coat with a credit card until you absolutely have the money to pay for it. And three, you should know that some people think it’s cool to throw buckets of fake blood on you as you are walking out of Burlington Coat Factory." This week’s episode is dedicated to ’The Surplus’ from Season 5! We talk about Michael’s struggle to please everyone while choosing between a new copier or new chairs, along with Dwight, Angela, and Andy touring Schrute Farms as a wedding venue. Of course we highlight all of the butter sculptures, tuna sandwich kisses, and trips to Burlington Coat Factory that make up this episode.

No. I’m like Butch Cassidy, and Michael is like Mozart. You try and hurt Mozart; you’re going to get a bullet in your head courtesy of Butch Cassidy." This week’s episode is dedicated to Michael and Dwight, one of the foundational relationships in The Office. We go through all of the watermelon babies, attempted coups, and fights at the dojo that make up their arc, while also talking about how the relationship changes and evolves over the course of the show.

109: The Alliance (Superfan Cut)

"Do I feel bad about betraying Jim? Not at all. That’s the game. Convince him we’re in an alliance, get some information, throw him to the wolves. That’s politics baby. Get what you can out of someone, then crush them. I think Jim might have learned a very valuable lesson." Do we want to form an alliance with you? Absolutely we do. With the season 1 Superfan episodes of The Office hitting Peacock this week, we decided to focus on ’The Alliance’. We go through the birthday card messages, warehouse box stakeouts, and accidentally generous walkathon donations that make up this episode. Then we compare it to the Superfan cut before talking more generally about what those new editions mean for the show. In the conference room we talk about funny moments from Zoom or Teams calls while working remotely, and then we wrap up with another round of trivia. "Look, we can breathe just fine.

Andy: Where are you going? Pam: Uh, not on a three month boat trip. With our producer Alex vacationing in the Bahamas, we’re dedicating this week’s episode to an arc we're calling 'Andy at Sea’. We go from him embarking on the voyage (and leaving Erin behind) to his early return (“You’re back…and you’re disgusting") and everything that happens in Scranton while he’s gone. We cover why Ed Helms had to miss those episodes, how these developments affect Andy’s overall character arc, and why Dunder Mifflin runs smoothly with him gone. Then we head to the conference room for a listener-submitted MSPC Bingo Card, and then we close with one quick trivia question.

107: The Banker (a.k.a. The Clip Draft)

"It might seem crazy, but since there’s no one left in New York, Michael is Dunder Mifflin’s highest ranking employee. So, that’s where we are." 'The Banker’ stands out as the only clip show The Office, and on this week’s episode we talk about all the HR liabilities, Computron facts, and Office clips that make up this unique episode. That discussion got us thinking about what we’d want in a clip show of The Office, so we follow it up by going to the conference room to fantasy draft our own clips from all 9 seasons. And then of course we finish up with another trivia challenge sent by a listener!

Angela: The senator and I still have mystery. I’m always waiting to see what he’s gonna surprise me with next. [Oscar chokes on his coffee] This week we look at the love triangle between Angela, the senator, and Oscar. That dynamic spans the last few seasons of the show and plays a big role in the arcs of both Oscar and Angela as the show wraps up. We talk about all the yoga classes with Blake, picnics thrown by the comptroller’s wife (if anyone knew what a comptroller was), and sandwich deliveries for Oscar Martinez that make up that arc. And to think, it’s all because Angela and the senator shared a bale at Hay Place. Then we head to the conference room we take some listener emails, talk about David Wallace’s house going up for sale, and think about what Office locations we’d want to Airbnb in.

What happens when you take the Dunder Mifflin staff out of the office? That’s what we’re looking at this week on the Michael Scott Podcast Company! We go through all of the characters’ second jobs and side hustles, including Michael’s time at the call center, Toby writing Chad Flenderman novels, and Creed selling fake IDs with a laminating machine that he swiped from the sheriff’s station.

We look at the origins of the character and discuss Mike Schur, who plays him in The Office and went on to help create Parks & Recreation, Brooklyn 99, and The Good Place. Then we focus on how Mose adds to Dwight’s character and provides a unique comedic element with every appearance.

We go through all the green M&Ms, acapella versions of ‘Cat’s in the Cradle’, and mega desks that make up this one-off holiday episode. Then we head to the conference room, have a quick ‘Ordinary Things’ segment to discuss St. Paddy’s Day traditions, and close with another round of trivia. They say that no man is an island. False!

"The thing about Jim, is when he’s excited about something, like the Office Olympics, he gets really into it and he does a really great job. But the problem with Jim is that he works here, so that hardly ever happens." This week’s episode is dedicated to Big Tuna, Jim/James/Jimothy, basically Gumby with hair, Jim Halpert. We start by talking about his function in the show, how he provides exposition through talking heads and acts as an audience surrogate by breaking the fourth wall. Then we look at his professional and romantic arc, followed his relationships with Pam, Michael, Dwight, and corporate. And of course we highlight all the teapot notes, Dwight pranks, arrogance/smudgeness, and looks to the camera along the way. After that, we go to our Ordinary Things segment, where we discuss times we were too early for something, like Michael interviewing at corporate, and then we close with a quick round of trivia.

“Every so often, Jim dies of boredom. I think today it was the expense reports that did him in. And our deal is that it’s up to me to revive him.” How do you escape the doldrums and ennui of the office? If you’re Michael Scott and Dwight go to sign the papers on the condo where your grandkids will someday learn to walk. If you’re Jim and Pam, you host the inaugural Office Olympics. We dedicate our episode to this episode, discussing all of the cathedral ceilings, flonkerton races, and carpenter ants that make up this epsiode. In the conference room this week we talk about Brian Baumgartner’s new podcast that compiles the interviews from An Oral History of The Office, have a quick ‘Actually’ moment, and react to John Krasinski’s SNL Office theme. Then we debut a new segment where we talk about our own lives called Ordinary Things. It smells like cookies. Yes it does, my friend. Yes it does.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

98: Robert California

“You see, I sit across from a man, I see his face, I see his eyes. Now, does it matter if he wants a hundred dollars of paper, or a hundred million dollars of deep-sea drilling equipment? Don’t be a fool. He wants respect, he wants love, he wants to be younger, he wants to be attractive. There is no such thing as a product. Don’t ever think there is. There is only sex. Everything is sex. You understand that what I’m telling you is a universal truth, Toby.” He’s the CEO, he’s Bob Kazamakis, he’s the f*cking Lizard King. We dedicate this episode to Robert California, one of the most unique characters in The Office and a defining figure of season 8. We go through all the pool parties, one-man saturnalias, and nature metaphors that comprise Robert’s time on the show. The man speaks of nothing but sex! Well, that’s not true, sometimes he talks about flesh…and bacchanals. After that we head to the conference room for a new segment where we correct errors on the show. Then we discuss which Office images we’d want as jigsaw puzzles before wrapping with another round of trivia.   Support our show and become a member of Scott's Tots on Patreon!

69: Oscar

Oscar stands out in the Dunder Mifflin ensemble for his intelligence, his pretentiousness, and his kiss with Michael. He really fits that old stereotype of smug, gay Mexican.

68: The Warehouse

We venture down to the warehouse to a different side of Dunder Mifflin, a place where Darryl runs the show and Michael is absolutely not allowed to use the baler. Throughout the show, the warehouse provides an extension of the workplace that allows the characters to interact with the operations of the paper business and provides a stage for events too big for the conference room. We go through all of the C.R.I.M.E. A.I.D. auctions, Casino Nights, ping pong games, and discuss what that place means to the show. Then we recount our favorite celebrity cameos while Michael is talking to a fake Tina Fey, before closing with yet another fantastic round of listener-submitted trivia.

64: Michael and Pam

“This is our receptionist, Pam. Pam! Pam-Pam! Pam Beesly.” With those words and that Flintstones reference Michael kicks off one of the relationships at the heart of The Office. Michael and Pam are at the center of so many cold opens, story lines, and talking heads that their dynamic is one of the most important in the entire show. We go through the inappropriate jokes, the fake firings, and the times when they pick each other up and support each other. Almost the entire episode is dedicated to this one topic, with the exception being a quick, classic round of trivia. If you think she’s cute now, you should have seen her a couple of years ago.
