The Office Recap: Episode 11, "Night Out"

The Office Rundown: Episode 11, "Night Out"

Man, Ryan is a schmuck! I loved this episode of The Office in that it paired up Ryan's ridiculous cockiness with Michael's cluelessness and Dwight's bizarre social skills and set it all the "hip" environment of a nightclub.

Meanwhile, back at Dunder-Mifflin, Jim has everyone work late so they don't have to come into the office the next day. Problem: the gate out of the parking lot is locked. While trapped together, Toby makes a big announcement.

What did you think about this week's Office? Check out SavvySugar's relatable moments, and to see some of the things I enjoyed and to share your own,


  • The social networking feature on the Dunder-Mifflin website was infiltrated by sexual predators, which Creed, apparently doesn't see a problem with. Ha! And: Gross.
  • Michael: "Jim, it's not the horniness, okay? It's the loneliness."
  • Dwight, remarking upon the women in the club: "They look like white slaves."
    Michael: "No, they're just hot. Hotties."
  • When Pam asked Dwight for the spare key to the office, just in case he dies or something, "He said, if I'm dead, you guys have been dead for weeks."
  • Dwight, to Ryan's petite friend: "Do you live in a regular-sized house?"
  • Michael, on the club: "This place is like a sexy preschool."
  • Dwight points to the group of tall women, "How did you all find each other?" When she tells him they're a college basketball team, Dwight says simply, "Amazons."
  • Andy asks for a show of hands of who thinks he and Angela make a better couple than Pam and Jim.
  • Just FYI, the part when Pam wails the football at Meredith's head gets funnier with every repeated viewing.
  • After awkwardly grabbing Pam's knee, Toby announces he's going to move to Costa Rica, then, "I'm just gonna hop the fence and jog home now."
  • Michael: "I don't want to get ahead of myself, but I think I want her to meet my mom." Later, he's actually on the phone with his mom, at the club.
  • Jim: "Cleaning people. Oscar."
  • The collective receiving of the picture of Dwight making out with the "Amazon" is hilarious.
  • Dwight, in response to Ryan saying his friend has a drug problem: "I think his species might have a higher tolerance than ours."
  • Michael: "I've been watching The Wire lately, I don't understand a word of it."
  • Michael: "A famous person once said, 'Boys on the side.' But I disagree. I say, 'Let's hear it for the boys.'"

I loved this episode, but I tried to get my grandma to start watching the Office, and I am pretty sure it made absolutely NO sense to her!

SOOO awkward for Toby. I hope he's not REALLY moving to Costa Rica. I really think we got to see some of Ryan's humanity in this episode. (Apparently he still has some.) Hopefully his night out will be a wakeup call. Dwight was surprisingly good with the ladies! Snaps for him! Heart breaker. And that poor security guy! They really should have thought to call him when they got out. Ooops.

I am not feeling the episodes. I swear the writers are messing with the crew just to show how important they are. My fav part was when Toby awkwardly touched Pam's knee, I was cringing!

I loved the episode, although Ryan's coke problem wasn't funny to me, it was scary. I was so frustrated that neither Michael or Dwight caught on. I wish it would come out soon and Ryan would be fired or sent back to Scranton as a temp again. How much did I love that Dwight made out with a hot woman? Take that, Angela! I love how he said to Michael when they were leaving "I'm not gonna call her." Hilarious. Jim kind of annoyed me in this episode. He wants to manage, but he sucks at it, as demonstrated by locking them in and in a previous episode trying to consolidate the birthday parties. I hope Toby doesn't leave! He is so endearing. And I want more Andy! He's my favorite character.

I think the show was hilarious. Way better now that the whole stanford conneticut stuff is done- I hated when Jim was not in scranton. I loved the hobbit line and the fact that Ryan is hopped up on drugs. Love it.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but according to the NBC site, Toby IS leaving the show. People are blogging about it like crazy. I also agree with a lot of the other comments on the NBC blog. Ever since the writers strike was over, the show just hasn't been the same. They seem to get a little better each week, but they just aren't where they used to be. This scares me, because I would hate to see the show cancelled because people weren't interested anymore.

I hope that doesn't mean Toby is leaving, my favorite running joke is how much Michael hates him. Lol, pushing his tray off the table in The Deposition when he was trying to make him feel better, and saying things like "Why are you even here?" then Toby says "I work here" I would miss that stuff so much

Toby's scene was bound to happen eventually, I suppose. He's had a kind of crush on Pam for quite some time. Remember when they all went to that bar and he spent the whole time getting the bear (or some other stuffed animal) from the crane game for her? Although the way he handled the situation (and he's an HR rep, of all things) was hilarious. And Jim's somewhat racist attitude with the cleaning ladies and Oscar was like, totally something Michael would do. It's like a prophecy coming true! It looks like Jim is slowly manifesting into Michael. And I didn't see Ryan hopped up on X (or some other club drug) coming. Well, I should have, but I was still surprised. No wonder it looks like he's lost so many brain cells; maybe that's why it takes forever to put up Dunder Mifflin Infinity.. Haha, can't wait for next week.

This episode was hilarious, as usual. Loved it. Especially Toby caressing Pam's knee. And Ryan turns out to be a cokehead...I didn't see that one coming!

Meredith taking one straight to the dome might be my all-time favorite Office moment ever.

favorite two lines: Dwight, to Ryan's short friend: "Do you have powers?" and of course when Toby grabs Pam's knee and akwardly says: "...I'm...moving to Costa Rica...I'm just gonna go hop the fence and jog home now..."

I am so glad to know that I'm not the only one still laughing at Pam's misfire of the football. Funny moments all around.

I think that the Jim-bordering-on-racist thing is to show everyone that even though he tries really hard NOT to be, he is a lot like Michael in some ways.

Cocoangel - I was reading an article a while back and I guess Paul Lieberstein is much more comfortable writing than he is acting. I don't know if that means he's going to peace out or not, but I guess I wouldn't be stunned if he did. But I would definitely miss Toby. I love his awkward funniness.

I also loved the Toby/Pam awkwardness...I've been waiting for this moment and it was just as awkward and funny as I expected. I also figured Ryan would be a cokehead and am a bit curious as to see how that's going to play out and how they plan to make it funny.

This episode was ok for me, not nearly as good as last weeks...but that's ok -Pam throwing the football at Meredith's face...I didn't see that coming(i'm sure mere didn't see it either.) -Michael taking the pic of Dwight and that chick and then texting it to everybody -Awkward moment with Toby and Pam's knee Ok I don't like how they were making Jim seem like a racist or something. 1. with the security guy 2. with the cleaning ladies... Only Michael is supposed to say stuff like that(or is that on purpose?)C u next week!

Do you think Paul Lieberstein, who plays Toby, will really leave the show? Was that a serious announcement or was he just freaked about subconsciously acting on an urge? Fav dialogue: Michael: I am going to go get laid Dwight: With sex!

Mang, I wish I hadn't deleted the episode from my DVR. Somehow I missed the part where they received the makeout phone pic. :( Toby's awkward moment absolutely killed me!

Now I don't feel so bad that I kept on rewinding the part where Pam throws the football at Meredith's head. Seriously I'm laughing just thinking about it!

I was laughing so hard when Toby jumped the fence and ran away. That was seriously hilarious. Also Dwight's grilling of Ryan's "Hobbit" friend was classic! I love looking forward to Thursday nights again.

It was painful just like all the episodes. But I love it. I loved the poor securty guards face when they were all gone. That guy is gonna HATE them now haha. and I SO called Ryan as a cokehead. When he got that job I told my boyfriend, He's going to become one of thsoe douchy managers that do coke on the weekends and want to be "cool" HA
