Trivia

When Dwight is called into Charles's office, Dwight says he's going to stand because "blood clots." Charles says to sit because standing is "weird." Medical research since this episode aired has shown that prolonged sitting has a number of adverse health affects and that "sitting is the new smoking." While it is doubtful sitting during Dwight's short meeting with Charles would've done much harm, Dwight is right to avoid sitting. See more »

Outro clip.
1 September 2017 | by ohnotwentytwelveSee all my reviews

The final 15 seconds of this episode with the cheese ball contest is hilarious. Probably the hardest I've laughed at anything in this entire series.

Taken as whole, this is one of the better episodes of s5.
