Tim's world is rocked when Dawn turns up at the office to say hello. Despite a stern warning from Gareth and wise words from Keith in Accounts, Tim can't help but get his hopes up again.

Did You Know?


The voice of the BBC interviewer, heard at the end of the episode, is that of Ashley Jensen, Ricky Gervais' co-star in Extras (2005). See more »


During the Christmas Party when David is talking to Carol about being "stitched-up", he makes reference to Series 1 Episode 4, "Training" and his impromptu guitar performance. He says he did a cover of Bob Marley's 'No Woman No Cry', and Oliver, "the office black guy" loved it, but the BBC cut it from the programme... Oliver wasn't in Series 1, he moved from Swindon in Series 2. See more »


[Brent is waiting for his Blind Date to show up]
David Brent: I don't know what to expect, to be honest. I haven't been impressed so far. Erm, I hope their vetting them, because the computer seems to be throwing up any old rubbish. It's like they haven't put me in the right category or something because, you know. Oh fuck. I don't believe it, look at his.
[the camera turns to reveal a fat woman walking towards David]
Woman: Hello.
David Brent: Hiya.
Woman: All right?
David Brent: Yeah.
Woman: Is Monkey in there?
David Brent: [can't hide his surprise and relief] Oh yeah...

The Office

Christmas Special: Part 2

Probably the most wittiest and mature ending of a series ever projected on television reminding again what Ricky Gervais is and how passionate he is towards his writing, executing and acting when it comes to create and represent his concepts to the world.
