    Jenna Fischer Told The Story Behind The Iconic "Office" Episode Where Pam Gets Drunk At Chili's

    I feel God in this Chili's tonight.

    If you're a fan of The Office (and who isn't?), you'll remember the episode where Pam gets drunk at a Chili's and gives this iconic speech after being presented with a Dundie Award.

    Well, during a recent appearance on the Late Late Show, Jenna Fischer — who played Pam on the show — told the story behind the episode, and revealed she didn't have much experience to pull from when it came to acting drunk.

    So, to prepare for the episode, Jenna and BJ Novak — who was a writer for The Office as well as playing Ryan — went out, got drunk, and analysed how she felt.

    And that's how Jenna did her research for the iconic Dundies episode.

    Luckily, while Pam was given a lifetime ban from Chili's for her drunken antics, Jenna's personal ban was officially lifted last year by the President of Chili's.

    Thanks for the trip down memory lane, Jenna. 💖
