Storyline

Since Phyllis is holding a bachelorette party in the office, Michael decides to hold a bachelor party in the warehouse downstairs. He assigns Jim to find a stripper for the women while he and Ryan are out finding dirty tricks for the bachelor party. Instead, Jim hires a Ben Franklin scholar for the women to enjoy. The bachelor party doesn't go as planned because none of the men want to participate with the stripper except Michael, who quickly feels uncomfortable because he has a girlfriend. Meanwhile, upstairs, Pam and Karen share a small conversation, during which Karen questions Pam about her feelings for Jim. With the ending of the bachelorette party, Ben Franklin hits on Pam and has an intense game of Ben Franklin trivia with Dwight. Written by murielirvin

Trivia

Oscar does not appear in this episode, despite returning in the previous episode, "The Return". Andy also does not appear, as he is in anger management training (stated in the on-line producer's cut of "The Return"). Toby also does not appear due to the fact that he was "sent home by Michael" so he wouldn't know of the strippers. This was shown in the deleted scenes for the show. See more »

Michael Scott: I can't get a stripper here. Sexual harassment.
Todd Packer: Get one for the girls, too. That evens it out. Like, you know, seperate but equal.
Michael Scott: So that's what that means.
