The employees of Dunder Mifflin Paper Company are responsible for boosting our serotonin levels for almost eight years! The Office, with it’s impeccable cast, including John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer, is one of the best sitcoms ever made.
If you are a true fan of The Office and have an eye for detail, you might have spotted some of the details that were present in the scene multiple times throughout the show.
Here, we have a list of 17 recurring details in the show, that you may or may not have missed.
1.The George Foreman grill.
Remember that grill, on which Michael burned his foot, because apparently, he liked waking up to the smell of bacon? It reappears in the episode named, “Dinner Party”.
2. The cute little teapot.
Yup, you guessed it right, we are talking about the teapot that Jim gifted to Pam on Christmas. She uses it again in the Finer Things Club.
3. James P. Albini.
Who James is, you ask? Well, he’s the lawyer which Michael hires in Season 2. He’s mentioned again in Season 3 when Dwight and Michael throw a watermelon off the roof, and it hits the car.
This one’s pretty obvious. Carol was Michael’s girlfriend who broke up with him because he photographed himself in her family-photos! In Threat Level Midnight, Carol plays a cameo when she reappears as the realtor of the house Michael Scarn lives in.
5. WHERE ARE THE FIREWORKS?
Dwight and Kevin are ardent lovers of Fireworks, as seen in season 2. And they are absolutely outraged when they find out that the wedding will be firecracker-free.
6. The office IT guy.
In season 4, during the Job fair, Pan talks to a graphic designer; he appears again in season 6, as the office IT guy.
7. Broken TV screen.
The plasma screen TV Jan throws a Dundie at, mysteriously reappears on Michael’s wall a season later.
8. On Sale!
The infamous Plasma screen TV, appears again in Season 7, when it’s put up for sale in the episode named “Garage Sale”.
9. Stuck-to-the-wall painting
Another object that makes a special reappearance in the Garage Sale is the Stuck-to-the-wall painting. It’s first seen in Jim and Pam’s house.
10. “Ketchup Fights”
In season 3, Michael tells Jan that he wants a love that includes ketchup fights, and in Threat Level Midnight he inserts a “ketchup fight” in his movie. (Cute, right?)
If you didn’t already know this, you are not a true fan, sorry.
Elizabeth, the dancer at Bob Vance’s bachelor party, is also the recipient of the cheque made out to “Science”. She also shows up at Dwight’s bachelor’s party, later in the show.
12. Angela’s babies-as-adults poster
This poster, that Oscar hates and complains about it to Toby, was in fact, a Christmas gift from Toby himself.
13. The Relationship- disclosing agreement.
Jan gives Michael their relationship- disclosing agreement for the company, his enthusiastic self promises to get it framed, and so he does!
14. Padlocked Copier?
When Michael, Dwight, and Jim drove to the Utica branch, Michael and Dwight tried to steal the copier! Well, when we see the copier next, in Season 5, it’s padlocked. Guess the Utica branch is not taking any chances, huh?
15. Schrute wedding tradition
In the beginning, Dwight tells the viewers a rather weird “Schrute wedding tradition” of getting married while standing in the grave! When, seasons later, Dwight and Angela get married, they actually do it.
16. Same seminar, Same Facilitator.
The guy who delivers the diversity seminar, at Scranton, also delivers the SAME seminar at Stamford as well.
17. Absolutely, I do
Word of wisdom:- whenever Dwight asks you to do something in secret, always say “Absolutely I do”. All the other characters followed this pattern, throughout the show.
