The lost episode of The Office

This is great! I found an unproduced script for "The Office" on Simply Scripts. It's hysterical. Michael has the office take an intelligence test to boost the "Office IQ" and Dwight grows a mustache!

Here's the link:

http://www.simplyscripts.com/scripts/dunder-mifflin.html

It's called Dunder-Mifflin: The Smartest Guys in the Room. You have to read this if you love the show like I do.

That is so cool. I was looking on simplyscripts for scripts related to the show and couldn't find anything.

Mar 17th 2006

I'm not sure if it's real or not, but that's a great episode...and quite possibly an ep yet to come...who knows.

Mar 17th 2006

This is awesome! Sooo funny. Oscar is the smartest guy in the room!

funniest line:

Dwight: "I think Jesus had a mustache. Though there are conflicting reports on that."

Does anyone know if this is a real episode that they have shot? If not, how do we get them to make this?

I didn't really care for this script. The tone of it didn't fit in with the episodes I've seen, and some of the humor seemed...I don't know, forced and cliched. For one thing, I can't see Jim and Pam casually discussing Jim's love life while Jim hangs over Pam's desk, like in the opening scene of this script. It's not bad I guess, but it won't break my heart if it's fake (maybe a fan fiction?) or if it doesn't get made.

Spellings on a few of the names were incorrect, so my guess is that it's not a legit script. Of course, I could be wrong. They should find the writer and add him/her to staff.

I wish they'd publish the full scripts, plus deleted scenes, at the end of the season. There's so much funny stuff that we miss!

I just read the script. AWESOME. That definately needs made into an episode, if not already. I laughed out loud to the script as I would if it were on tv.

The ending of course ruined JAM. Jim can never catch a break.

This script was e-mailed to me by the writer (Chris Frazier) almost a week ago inviting me to share it with anyone that might get a laugh out of it. So, I can only assume this is NOT an actual episode - just fan fiction. Or, a more probable scenario: someone trying to break into the ranks of TV screen writers.

I only made it though half of it before I got pulled away to something else, but what I read was pretty good. I could actually picture it all happening. I do have to agree with Michelle in some of her criticism though.

Overall, not a bad read. Best of luck to Chris in the future.

I loved it!! I could actually picture the episode playing out in my mind while I was reading it.

Mar 21st 2006

I really liked it. I can easily picture the characters within the script's context. Their dialogue rings true as well.

This 'lost episode' is akin to a second drink.

Mar 28th 2006

Wish I would have stumbled on this thread earlier. I just plugged Mr. Frazier's script over in 'shows we'd like to see'. Good point, Michelle. Some of the tone seems slightly off. But not by much. And when you consider the fact that a whole staff of writers and an incredible cast of improvisers give the 'real' scripts their tone...well, I have to take my hat off to Mr. Frazier. Quite a feat for a solo pen. I suspect he's using this to shop for an agent. He deserves one.

Now then, all of you go read my own sample script entitled "Picture This" and give me what for. www.simplyscripts.com

it's a great script lmao

Apr 5th 2006

shrug It was an okay read... I kinda agree that a lot of it seemed forced... there was just something about it that was out of the ordinary. Maybe it was because I went into it with the mentality that it isn't a real episode...?

Apr 5th 2006

Whoa. That script was TIGHT. I loved it. LOVED it. I have no idea if this can really be made into an episode for the series, but I for one, would love to see the actors bring it to life. I thought it was very, very funny and true to the characters. The JAM thing was tough at the end. Ugh. The angst.

Apr 5th 2006

et tu Shrutus,

Your script was great too. I just finished reading it-awesome concept!!! The dickey thing was hilarious. Great job!

It's weird. I thought this meant like the Lost episode of the office. Like the DMers get crash in a plane and get stranded on an island. Or if Pam were Kate or something like that.

Hurley grows up to be Kevin?

Said becomes the IT guy?

Now, this is a plot line I could get behind.
