I wrote about the brilliance of The Office in a previous post, but I would like to go into a bit more detail about some of my favorite episodes. In total, there are 188 episodes of The Office; I plan on sharing about 10-15 of the best episodes out of these 188.
My personal favorite episode from The Office is Scott’s Tots. This is episode 12 in season 6, and I found the entire episode hilarious. However, while I was doing research for this article, I learned that it is not everyone’s favorite episode, and that some people actually hate it. There is even a reddit post with the name “Seen The Office like 5 Times, but only Scott’s Tots Twice”. Therefore, while I found the episode super funny, I guess the humor is not for everyone.
In the episode, Michael Scott has to revisit a commitment that he made 10 years prior. Apparently, he promised a group of elementary school students that if they tried hard enough and were able to get into college, he would pay for all of their education. He made this promise because he truly believed that one day he would be a successful businessman who could afford to uphold this promise.
In the episode, Michael goes to see the group of kids that he made the promise to, and learns that all of them have gotten into college. It is in this encounter that one of the most cringeworthy, but also funny scenes takes place. You should watch the episode yourself if you are interested, but the kids sing Michael a song with the lyrics “Hey Mr. Scott, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do make our dreams come true”. You can watch the entire scene here on Youtube. It is the scene I remember the most distinctively from the entire series.
Humor and comedy are very subjective, so the same scene that is so funny to me may not be very funny to others. However, if you have similar taste in humor to me, season 6 episode 12 is a must-watch episode of The Office!
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
