The Office Easter Eggs
The Office still has a cult following years after the series has come to a close. Even though the show has been off TV since 2013, fans continue to find new and hilarious easter eggs.
r/DunderMifflin has over 750,000 subscribers who gather to discuss the show and reveal hidden secrets. We’ve compiled a few of our favorites to share.
1. Jim Signs Meredith’s Cast “John Krasinski”
In Season 4, Episode 3, Michael ends up hitting Meredith with his car. Later in the episode, Meredith returns from the hospital with a cast on her pelvis. She asks office cutey, Jim, to sign her cast, but he signs with his real name, John Krasinski, instead of his character’s name. Oops!
2. Oscar Drinking Fake Wine
In Season 8, Episode 12, Oscar takes a hard pull from a wine bottle while interviewing with the camera crew. Apparently, no one realized the prop label was still stuck to the bottom of the bottle. If you pause the screen while he’s drinking, you can see a blue piece of tape that says “Oscar” still stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Bottom ups, Oscar.
3. Michael Eats Tiramisu out of the Trash
This one takes a while to set up, so buckle in. In Season 5, Episode 10, Jim goes out to lunch with Michael against Pam’s wishes. As a way of saying sorry, Jim brings back a slice of tiramisu for Pam, but she immediately dumps it in the trash. Later in the day, we see Michael eating some to-go tiramisu at his desk.
Some people on r/DundlerMifflin think that he may have just brought back his own dessert from the restaurant, but he is seen coming back with Jim empty-handed. Later in the episode, Michael scolds Pam for throwing away some “perfectly fine tiramisu.” All evidence leads us to believe Michael went digging in the trash.
4. Jim is Wearing a Wig During Season 3
Young Jim has floppy, disheveled hair that eventually grows into a more mature cut as Jim matures himself. In season 3, his hair looks a little more stringy and bouncy than normal. Actor John Krasinski was actually forced to shave his head for a role in the movie Leatherheads while season three was being shot. This forced him to wear a wig for the final six episodes of season three.
5. David Wallace Also Owns a World’s Best Boss Mug
Michael Scott drinks proudly from his World’s Best Boss mug in almost every episode of The Office, making it a staple of his character. However, Chief Financial Officer of Dunder Mifflin David Wallace also owns a similar mug. In the season 2 episode “Valentine’s Day,” you can spot the mug on his desk. Michael had to buy his own mug, but Wallace never addresses how he got his.
6. Michael’s Wallet is Stuck in the 90’s
You can see this one several times throughout the series. Believe it or not, Michael Scott is carrying around a bedazzled wallet. Though they never address it directly, we think this adds yet another hilarious aspect to Michael’s character for those of us observant enough to notice.
