8 Behind The Scenes Facts from "The Office" You Probably Don't Know

Alright, so you're an expert on all things The Office, right? We know this because of our bitter memories of your correction comments from over the years.  And by the way, it is "What kind of bear is best?" not "Which kind of bear is best?" thankyouverymuch.

Admin plight aside, we know The Office pretty damn well ourselves.  And even we didn't know most of this stuff.  So check it out, and leave your corrections additions in the comments below!


8) In Greg Daniels' mind (The Office U.S. creator and executive producer), Jim and Pam would have been an interracial couple.  In this alternative showniverse, Craig Robinson would have played Roy instead of Darryl, and Justine, Darryl's ex-wife, would have played Pam.

It would have been tough to hate Craig.
7) Remember that episode in Season 9 where Pam interviews with Bizarro-Michael for a job? (In actuality, Mark played by Bob Odenkirk) That scene was a throwback to the little known fact that Bob Odenkirk nearly got the role of Michael Scott, when Steve Carell almost had to bow out due to another pilot commitment.



6) The opening credit images were shot by John Krasinski.  After he landed the role of Jim, he and some friends took off to Scranton for a road-trip to get a feel for the place.  The title editors later used his shots for the opening sequences.



5) Oscar's being gay was decided because the writers saw Oscar Nunez wearing a pink shirt during a table read.


How to properly TWSS

So, I have this uncle who butchers That's What She Said jokes on the regular. (That's what she said.) He takes comments with zero sexual innuendo and adds a TWSS to the conversation, and then alone,  laughs his heart out.  (That's what she said.) But he doesn't do this just once, no.  (That's what she said!) He repeats the "joke" over and over again after every. single. sentence, however nonsensical. (That's what she said!!!!!)

Seriously. It's an epidemic.

Getting the picture? Yeah...

In an effort to dispel the abuse of our beloved joke, here's The Office-isms' tips for producing a proper and hilarious That's What She Said joke that would make Michael Scott proud.

Well duh, but that doesn't mean we can't still rock a TWSS


The Office Characters: Where are they now?

It's been nearly a year since we got to see what was up with our favorite Dunder Mifflinites, but thankfully, we've been able to catch up with all of them to get the scoop on their current lives. 

Andy got married and loves his new life and job with Cornell. He recently auditioned for the current version of Cornell's acapella group: Here Comes Treble. He's still waiting to hear back, but he has a really good feeling about it.
Angela is now a stay-at-home mom of three children (four, if you count Mose) and her 29 cats. She keeps busy by brushing the cats and feeding the children, sometimes the other way around.
Clark is still at Dunder Mifflin, trying to impress the new accountant, Dakota. He was recently promoted to Senior Junior Salesman. About his promotion, he said: "It's progress."
Creed posted bail and is now on the lam. He's presumed to be living under the assumed name: Creed Burton. Anyone with information on his whereabouts is urged to contact their local authorities.
