I feel like Jan is a ride Jim wouldn't survive
Like a swarm of angry bees.
Who find something wrong with every hotel room…
Like a well-watered fern
Nate survived that just fine.
Clark survived a figurative swarm of bees (who find something wrong with every hotel room). Nate survived a literal swarm of angry bees. It was do or die.
Were those bees, or hornets? I can’t remember.
Don’t you mean Professor Damon D. Duck?
Plop you mean
But a hell of a ride nonetheless
What a way to go, tho
But at what cost?
It nearly killed me, but the work is done.
That’s because he’s a new Dwight, and Dwight is a survivalist.
If New Dwight survived, all you other losers have been dead for weeks.
Hall and Oates wrote a song about her. Look out, boy.
Hunter wrote a song about her.
Banging his boss.
Working under her
I'm feeling very irie right now
You took me by the hand....
Made me a man!
That one night!
You made everything alriiiighhtttt
Wait, Jan cheated on Michael?? When he specifically asked her not to?
Ok you ruined it so you even know how the song goes!? You can’t just [put paper into a furnace] say an office quote interrupting the song! You know what would happen if you did that!? You’d ruin it!
I'm really sorry, I didn't mean to. It's just that when I realized what happened my emotions ran out of amok.
I recently found out that Daryl Hall wrote that song about NYC
I'd still like to think of it as about a woman though.
Maneater is about NYC?
From Wikipedia (it might have been written by both of them)
"John Oates has explained that while it is natural to assume the lyrics are about a woman, the song actually was originally written "about NYC in the '80s. It's about greed, avarice, and spoiled riches. But we have it in the setting of a girl because it's more relatable."
oh no shit? that makes sense
Michael survived. But he also exudes sex, sooo...
**🎶 She'd taaake him byy the haaaand.... 🎵**
This quote is gold.
Jim can't even bang at the office
Ahh, you are referring to "Death by Snu-snu"
He’s smart enough not to get on
Jim and Jan. Now why does that sound familiar?
Jim in Jan
Jim almost everywhere, him almost everywhere
The show just got JAMMED!
Why would Jim and Jan buy a boat in the first place?
You mean Jumanji ? Right ?
It sounds like a Swedish cartoon duo
She was not rejecting his kiss.
She was so ready for it wtf
I, for one enjoy watching them, because
Can I finish?! Can I finish?!
I, for one, enjoy watching them cause it makes me horny
Had us in the 2nd 3rd ngl
One of my favorite Kevin lines
I was so afraid they would kiss back when I first watched the show
No matter how many times I watch it, I’m terrified they’re about to kiss
If John Krasinski tried to kiss you...
I'm guessing this isn't real John Krasinski, but like my fantasy version of John Krasinski?
I would resist at first...
If ~~Brad Pitt~~ John Krasinski tried to kiss you and you resisted, he would still have to get to you?
Is it my job to comfort sexually insecure redditors? That cannot possibly fall to me.
“I don’t know, you might be gay. You might be gay🤷♂️”
have you seen bloopers from other shows? The kissing thing seems to be a very common form of playfulness among actors from what I have seen. Its kind of challenging the other person to see who breaks first, like a game of chicken. Or maybe they are just a horny bunch lol.
I wonder if it was possible that she thought they were filming and John was doing his own thing. Like you know how directors will talk abkkt how certain things weren’t in a film until the actor decided their version was better and turns out it was? I hope this makes sense lol
\*whispers in your ear\* I can't say it out loud but I have a gun
Think about this -
and her smile is so wholesome, such a cutie pie
That‘s professional acting right there.
I always thought they had surprising chemistry here. This was also before they made the swerve with Jan being so nuts as a character so I think it could have been a legitimate plotline to pursue instead of going the Karen route.
I can’t disagree
Imagine Michael’s reaction
No matter who she's with all I hear is "that one night! You made everything all right!"
Damn, now it's stuck in my head. That Hunter...
“You took me by the hand…”
Hunter is still stuck in Jan's bed.
I messed up and it got stuck in my own head also
That one night ... made everything alrigggghht
Maaaaaade me a maaan
I always thought it was a possibility they hooked up that night. He compliments her looks. They both were rejected. Ok now I think it happened!
Jim is not her type. Compare Michael and all the qualities he has that attracts Jan
Jim is way too sane and put together for her. It would only work if he was 10 years younger
She took a run at Josh in a deleted scene from the convention episode. Josh was the opposite of Michael more than anyone.
I need to see that, Ive watched the peacock version and i guess i didnt catch it. Its probably a top 3 episode for me too
I remember it being in the DVD release. She invited Josh up to her room and got offended when he turned her down. She played it off like it was nothing untoward.
Man that would change the feel of the whole episode. I have to find that
They very briefly describe it in the deleted scenes section of the page. I cannot find a YouTube video of it. Bizarre.
Found it! Reddit to the rescue
Damn nice pull.
Could be just one night stand
We still don't know if they would have to report that to hr in the case
Could make him feel alright
Now i want to see a parody porn on this.
Oh no, help step-boss, I'm stuck (in a dead end job).
He DID say he’d throw himself in front of a train…
It 100% didn’t happen but the writers/directors were definitely making you think it *might* happen in order to keep you on your seat as to what might happen with Jim at the end of the episode. It ends of course with Jim going back up to Pam for a kiss, but they wanted you to think maybe he would go for Jan instead in the last scene.
Tan almost everywhere, Jan almost everywhere...
She would have turned him out.
She goes from Jan, the stiff corporate boss, before the fake kiss to Melora Hardin when she starts laughing.
Damn, it’s crazy how acting works
She can't stay on top of him 24/7.......
Jim: [looks at camera]
*loudly stifles laugh*
I would think she would debate you on that.
I watched this episode last night and realised HOW WEIRD their whole interaction was. She was so 'un' Jan and he definitely seemed like he was hitting on her. Seemed so out of character for both of them and was just never mentioned again.
She was pretty on par for who Jan was at the time. It was before they made her character actually nuts and she was more like a career-focused woman who had trouble making time for her relationships
They didn't "make her nuts" they gave a very obvious progression to her issues.
She loses her husband.
Sometimes after or possibly right after she has a falling out with her family that escalates to the need for lawyers.
Her entire world is shattered and all she has is her job in a failing industry.
She starts being self destructive and focusing on her own selfish wants so she hooks up with her assistant and Michael. She finds Michael is easy to control and manipulate and keeps him around but at an arm's length. Michael is the only thing she has any real control over in her life.
Then, he breaks up with her. The one person who was there for her even when she did wrong left her. She began taking time away from work and tried different things like a boob job to bring back her confidence and when that didn't work she came crawling back to Michael to feel validated again.
Then when she was fired she had to move in with him. The relationship spiraled as it was not built on anything real and led to her rock bottom after which she was able to pull herself out of her funk and eek out a life for herself by herself.
I always wondered what would have happened had Jim accepted that smoke…
His life would have been ruined.
Even I'm 2006, people really didn't smoke that much as compared to the 90s
Not gonna lie, the first time I watched this scene, I thought Jan was going to go in for a kiss and make for an awkward moment.
That's the kind of rizz I want
She took him by the hand,
Made him a man,
That one night,
Jan made Jim feel alrriiiiiight.
Well, women reach their sexual peak at whatever age Jan was last week
She was like an animal..... like an angry swarm of bees.....
Jan was/is so hot
What if Holly accepted one of the many wedding proposals she got before she got to Michael's?
She was down.
This wouldve been amazing.
Having to tell Michael...and Pam.
First time I watched I thought it was going to happen
This would finally clear a path for Michael and Pam to be together as well, truly the best ending for everyone.
Michael would be honored.
When I first started watching this series. I thought that’s what was gonna happen in this scene.
yo she was about to kiss him too haha
Well Jim is the office mattress
Jan is just a richer, heartless version of Meredith.
Until she gets a job with zero dollars a year salary plus benefits.
There was definitely some tension in that scene! The first time I saw it I thought they were gonna fuck
Alternate universe isn't real. It can't hurt you.
This video :
I rewatched this show like 1000 times, but I can't remember this scene at all... When was this?
It looks like an outtake from Casino Night
Jan laughing is a bigger surprise
Jan wouldn't make a guy like Jim sleep on the dog bed
He'd be up on the big boy and she'd be wearing him out every night
Get some of that big tuna
He better than me cause I would’ve 💀😂
It was rude that Jim asked her "why did you hook up".
Also this Jan is much better than later Jan
She smoked some tuna that night
I always thought something was going to happen between them when Jim joins Jan outside while she’s smoking in the Casino Night episode
I wish Jim had fallen in love with Jan, and he'd have to sleep on MY bed, and it'd be too short, and he'd look.....damn it, he'd still look good.
First time I watched that scene I actually was concerned Jim was gonna kiss Jan lol.
would've traumatized Jim
still better than pam
Well Assy would know who daddy is. Assy Halpert.
Jim would make Jan breakfast in the morning… or at least buy the milk. It’s soy!
Why does it look like he went in with his mouth open? 😂
i just jumped in my seat
