What are the hidden Easter Eggs in The Office?
"The Office" has indeed plenty of hidden Easter Eggs throughout its nine-season run. Here are some notable examples: 1. **"Dunder Mifflin Infinity" S4 E2**: When Rainn Wilson (Dwight Schrute) finally gets his own office in the building, he hangs a photo of himself on the wall. However, the photo he hangs isn't just a random one, it's his actual high school senior photo. 2. **"The Return" S3 E14**: In this episode, you can see an actual Staples store through the window of Dunder Mifflin. This was a nod to the ongoing joke of Staples being their biggest competitor. 3. **"Branch Wars" S4 E6**: When Michael, Dwight, and Jim go to Utica to prank Karen's branch, the picture on her wall, which Michael defaces, is actually a picture of Jim and Pam from "The Office" set. 4. **"Threat Level Midnight" S7 E17**: The movie script references many previous events and characters from earlier seasons like Jan's candle company and Toby's Chad Flenderman novels. It has numerous details that are callbacks to earlier episodes. 5. **"Dunder Mifflin Infinity" S4 E4**: There’s a scene where Dwight dumps a bunch of user manuals on his desk. Look closely, and you'll see that one of the manuals is for a “Sabre Printer,” years before the Sabre storyline was introduced. 6. **Jim's Map**: Throughout the show, Jim's map of Scranton changes from a realistic map to a fictional one, matching with made-up locations mentioned in the show. 7. **Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager**: When Jim becomes Co-Regional Manager, Dwight pesters Jim into making him Assistant Regional Manager. However, Jim counters by saying his new title is “Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager”. This joke comes full circle in the series finale when Dwight, who is now the manager, offers Jim the position of Assistant Regional Manager, and Jim insists on being called the “Assistant to the Assistant to the Regional Manager”. These are just a few examples of numerous hidden details and Easter Eggs you can find in The Office, which shows the depth and care the creators put into this enduring and beloved sitcom.
