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

Goofs

Dwight asks the Benjamin Franklin impersonator who is king of Austria, to which the man replies: 'Joseph II.' Joseph II was archduke of Austria. Austria never had a king, although the arch-duchy of Austria was merged into the Austrian empire with the other countries on Habsburg control in 1804. See more »
