While researching this question, I went to the Michael Scott page on Wiki. In the section of (the character) Scott's interests, it states that: Michael's favorite catchphrase is "That's what she said!", a sexually suggestive double entendre he uses even in the most inappropriate circumstances, including business meetings and legal depositions. Michael ...

In a conversation between A and B, "that's what she said" is a (very informal!) phrase B would use to give A's (harmless) statement an unexpected dirty meaning not indended by A. It is implied that the "she" said this during/before/after sexual or related activity. As an example: A is unsuccessfully trying to push a thick folder into an overfull shelf, ...

Yes, the the Scranton Strangler was identified fairly definitively. Toby was on the jury that convicted Skub, but feels he was pressured to convict, and suspects he might be innocent. From The Office Wiki: He decides to travel to the prison to confront the strangler about his belief, but when speaking to the strangler, is attacked, leaving him with ...

It seems you simply misunderstood the quote. Here's the full quote: Andy: [reading Cornell magazine] Whoa. Libby Dirketts got married. Big Red mazel tov to the Libster. Ooh, says here Dan Becker fell off the side of Kilimanjaro in a climbing accident. It appears Dan's Sherpa survived to tell the tale-Oh, my God! Phyllis: What? Is Dan okay? ...

This article from Hollywood contends that it was probably scheduling conflicts (Colbert films his show in NY while The Office originates in Van Nuys, CA). Reporter Michael Arbeiter suggests it is a sure sign your show is running dry when the guest stars don't even show up in person! If you think about it, though, if you wanted to contact someone you knew in ...

Ed Helms took time off to shoot Hangover 3. The reason for his absence, which is explained on the show as Andy and his brother taking a boat trip to find themselves, is that the actor has been hard at work on some film projects including “The Hangover Part III.” Source Or even Ed Helms...has been noticeably absent now for weeks while off ...

I agree with Bill about the sarcasm. Jim was not so much interested in the party because he thought it would be good, but specifically because he thought it would be a crazy mess like most of his other experiences with Dwight’s life (like the B&B he stayed in). I also agree that because Jim is expecting to leave the office, he may have been a little ...

From the The Office Wiki: "I figured the character would go back and visit everybody, but he wouldn't do it on camera at this point. I think he had grown past the idea of being in the documentary, that was my take on it. That [Michael Scott] had said goodbye to that aspect of his life, that that's not what was important to him. I just thought, ...

So the keleven, as you say, was used by Kevin to balance the books: Oscar: [on the phone] Years ago, the senator promised a left turn lane by the Arby’s. So I wanna know where in the name of horsey sauce is it? Well, yeah, you…hold on. Dakota: Hi. I keep seeing this symbol in the accounts from last year. It’s..it’s all over the place. I ...

According to this timeline, Jim started to work in Dunder Mifflin in 2001 (about 4 years prior to season 1). This is supported by Ryan's claim in Dwight's Speech (late season 2) that Jim has been working there for 5 years. And in Launch Party (season 4), he tells Pam he liked her on his first day, when she showed him to his desk. So, since they marry in late ...

I think there was quite a bit of sarcasm/irony behind Jim's enthusiasm for Dwight's Christmas party. Messing with Dwight is one of Jim's favorite hobbies, and with his impending departure to Philadelphia, he knows he won't get many more chances. Hearing Dwight describe his family's Christmas traditions, Jim seems to realize that an office party organized ...
