The One Thing You Never Noticed In "The Office"

Classic Michael Scott, really.

Posted on

So you've heard of The Office. Ran for nine seasons on NBC, totally awesome, based on a sitcom from the UK?

NBC

Thought so.

You might also know that for seven seasons, the main character of the series was (according to Netflix) "deluded boss Michael Scott."

NBC

Oh, so precious and deluded.

If you know all that, there's a chance you know that for 11 years, Michael was working on an action/adventure movie, Threat Level Midnight.

NBC

In this movie, Michael played Michael Scarn, his secret agent alter ego who went into retirement after the murder of his wife, Catherine Zeta Scarn. But now he's back to save a hockey stadium.

But remember years before the movie was ready, when Michael was dating Jan?

NBC

How could you forget Jan Levinson?

When Michael and Jan first started dating, things weren't going well. After a mishap at a party for David Wallace, Michael said these words to her:

OK, Michael. Sure
NBC

OK, Michael. Sure

But, it turns out this wasn't just a weird thing Michael said. It was a deep desire.

NBC

I was just as surprised as you are.

In Threat Level Midnight, Michael Scarn reflects on his memories with his late wife, which include THE KETCHUP FIGHTS.

In all their tomato-y glory.
NBC

In all their tomato-y glory.

There's one way Michael got to live out his fantasy.

Oh, Michael. You're too cute.
NBC

Oh, Michael. You're too cute.

Threat Level Midnight for Best Picture!
