  • Season 9: Episode 17
  • First aired on March 14, 2013

Dwight travels home for a customary Schrute funeral. He and his siblings receive a surprise inheritance that's not entirely welcome. Back at Dunder Mifflin, Todd Packer tries to make amends for a lifetime of bad behavior. Guest stars: Majandra Delfino, Thomas Middledithc, and David Koechner.

Someone had to, right?

No. We could pretend it never, ever, ever happened.

Oh, man, Packer's back? Um...

I dunno.

No. We could pretend it never, ever, ever happened.

I knew someone was gonna say that.

Mar 14th 2013

We can also pretend that continuity has ceased to exist on this show.

Mar 14th 2013

Do we have to pretend that is true or just accept it?

Mar 14th 2013

Yay! Wacky Packy is backy! The writers are G-E-N-I-U-S!!! I hope Jim and Pam have worked out their troubles or I will jump of a bridge. Ugh. I'd better document this in my LiveJournal.

I'm glad I was able to fulfill the prophesy. :-)

Do we have to pretend that is true or just accept it?

Yeah, that was a poorly worded sentence on my part. You make an excellent point.

I just read through the Wiki entry for Dwight Schrute. I realized that after about Season Five, I didn't recognize most of the references to episode plots or titles. I'm trying to decide if I should be sad about that or not.

Mar 14th 2013

A good quiz would be episode names, and you'd have to figure out the season, or if it was real or not.

I just saw this on facebook from Rainn Wilson

Office fans, tonight NBC is airing The Farm pilot as an episode of The Office.

It's a greatly truncated story right now (about 15 minutes of 'the farm' story and its' new characters with a 6 minute B plot set in the office) so you won't get the full effect of all the aspects of the pilot episode. About a 1/4 to 1/3 had to be trimmed and other scenes rearranged a bit.

We had to trim out several crucial elements of The Farm to adapt it into a regular old episode that fits into the arc of Dwight now that he's not leaving Dunder Mifflin for his own series with his family members.

That being said, I hope you enjoy tonight's episode, oddly mutated and assembled as it is. We worked long and hard on it and I think there was a lot of potential for a crazy but grounded rural TV show there.

NBC saw otherwise and wanted to stick with its current crop of comedies.

Let me know what you think!

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Mar 14th 2013

I saw a sneak peak for this episode. I think NBC actually got it right this time. Paul Lieberstein strikes again!

I thought it was terrible! -- AMJ from the Future

Mar 14th 2013

Love it, AMJ.

Mar 14th 2013

Talk about adding insult to injury.

Rainn: So, do you like it for the 8 p.m. Thursday slot?

Idiot NBC Exec: Our current crop of comedies are better.

Rainn: commits harakiri by shoving pencil in own eye

God that was bad.

AMJ From the Future is wise.

Mar 14th 2013

It's a heart-warming story, but it's just not believable, which is why I give The Farm one and half stars.

Mar 14th 2013

God that was bad.

You're very kind.

Mar 14th 2013

Well, it wasn't Gettysburg or Mafia, but still terrible. Why would anyone think that concept was a good idea?

Mar 14th 2013

Worst Episode Ever

Mar 15th 2013

Now, I've got to see this. Well, not now, but I've got to see this.

Mar 15th 2013

Yeah, I didn't watch either, and now I feel like I missed a train wreck. Good thing I DVR'd the train wreck.

Mar 15th 2013

I think the real question here is, Toosie, why were you up so early this morning?

Mar 15th 2013

I don't even know. I went back to bed.

I'm going to watch the train wreck on hulu later on.

Mar 15th 2013

I think the real question here is, Toosie, why were you up so early this morning?

I've got more questions for Toosie than just that.

Mar 15th 2013

I'd rather you ask 'em now. If you ask them at 4 am, I might answer you.

Mar 15th 2013

What I wanna know is, does the carpet match the drapes?

Mar 15th 2013

Oh, that's harmless enough.

I've got, like, three rugs upstairs.

Mar 15th 2013

I bet it's wall to wall carpeting downstairs.

Wait, what? What I really wanted to know is, what do you see in Bri? Is it his legs, his boobs?

Mar 15th 2013

Which one is Bri?
