Litigation Value: Nothing for Pam, but I’m sure the Philly real estate employees have plenty of gripes.
Last night’s episode of “The Office” was a repeat of “Move On: Part I,” which we covered in our post “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.” There were plenty of shenanigans in Scranton during that episode, so we didn’t even get around to talking about Pam’s disastrous job interview in Philly. With Jim spending more and more time in Philadelphia working on developing his new company, Athlead, Pam is looking for employment opportunities in the area too. And hoo, boy, does she find one.
“Marky Mark, the horrible boss around here,” welcomes Pam for her interview with a tour around the office, complete with incoherent ramblings and bad jokes. He pokes fun at his employees, who have all so clearly heard the same jokes before – so many times – that they appear to have had their senses of humor beaten out of them. The interview then moves into Mark’s office, where he strums his guitar and serenades Pam with a spontaneous song – about her – under an “Odd Life of Timothy Green” poster. Pam, amused and intrigued, puts up with the interview until she discovers that what Mark is really looking for is a receptionist, not the office manager for whom he advertised.
