Michael tries to be supportive when he finds out one of his new employees -- presumably someone from the Stamford branch -- has a prison record.


Why did the convict have to be a black guy. It is such a stereotype. I just wish that Josh had made a more progressive choice. Like a white guy. Who went to prison for... polluting a black guy's lake.

Jim Halpert: [answers phone] Jim Halpert.
Andy: I am so horny.
Jim Halpert: Okay. I can't help you with that.
Andy: Oh, I think you can, Big Tuna. Tell me about that Indian chick, Kelly. She seems pretty slutty. Good for a romp in the sack.
Jim Halpert: She is dating Ryan, I think.
Andy: Oh, and I care why?
Jim Halpert: She high-maintenance.
Andy: Next. How about... Angela? Blondes are more fun. C'mon trust me on that.
Jim Halpert: Yeah, trust me. That would be fun for no one.

Close your eyes. Picture a convict. What's he wearing? Nothing special. Baseball cap on backward, baggy pants. He says something ordinary like, 'yo that's shizzle'. Okay, now slowly open your eyes again. Who you picturing? A black man? Wrong. That was a white woman. Surprised? Well shame on you.

I didn't hire an ex-convict. Unless they mean Toby. Convicted rapist.

The worst thing about prison was the... was the dementors. They were flying all over the place and they were scary and then they'd come down and they'd suck the soul out of your body. And it hurt!
