Sexual Harassment (Season 2, Episode 2)
Michael has forced Jan and the lawyer from Corporate to come down to Scranton because of his lewd forwarding of emails. After a quick meeting with the bosses, Michael announces to the office that he will no longer be doing sexually harassing things. Jim wastes little time in asking if this included “That’s what she said” jokes. Michael says yes and Jim goes to work. He begins, “Wow. That is really hard. You really think you can go all day long? Well, you always left me satisfied and smiling. So…” And that’s all it takes
The presence of Todd F. Packer is just to much for Michael, resulting in a resounding cry of, “That’s what she said!” Everyone loves it, except for Jan. Jim even gets a fist pump for the effort, realizing that he is, indeed, brilliant.
Michael doesn’t want his words to go unnoticed, so he gives the crowd a kiss as he is being dragged back into the office by Ms. Levinson-Gould.
5 – It’s only this low because of the reactionary message. Jim, always a quick thinker, saw the situation and said three sentences. Didn’t take much but the effect was made. It’s sole purpose was most likely to get Michael in trouble and it worked brilliantly.
2 – Could have done so much more, but effective if for the quick, momentary laugh.
Foot-in-the-Mouth Award – No one does foot-in-the-mouth better than Michael Scott and Jim knows this. Jim pulls a prank that not only is effective, but leaves him out of trouble.
