Trivia

The kiss between Michael and Oscar in the conference room was not scripted. The scene had been shot a couple of times with Steve Carell not kissing Oscar Nunez. Then on one take, Oscar saw "[Carell's] lips coming closer and closer". Nunez recalled "I'm like, 'Dear God, he's going to kiss me.' And sure enough, he planted one on my face." See more »

Quotes

[after extensively discussing Oscar's homosexuality]
Michael Scott: ...At least we put this matter to bed. That's what she said.
[pauses, nods contemplatively]
Michael Scott: Or he said.

I hope they win an Emmy for this one.
23 November 2006 | by (Montreal) – See all my reviews

Wow! I just can't get enough of this episode. I recorded it on DVD-R when it came out (no pun intended!) and I watch it over and over. The writing is unbelievable, and the acting is top notch. Steve Carell may just be the greatest actor on television right now! He could just come out as a prick, but with the subtlety he puts in his acting, you can sense a childlike quality behind his antics. He is incredible. This episode gets funnier and funnier with each viewing, but also the ending, with Micheal's voice-over about love, gets more and more heart-breaking. I would give this episode a 15 out of 10 if I could! It will probably end-up being the best episode of the series.
