I did think it was odd that the camera crew was at the Inn with Jim and Pam. I don't know that we've ever been let in on their "rules." Do they follow them all the time (even when Jim went to Connecticut) and only "show" the interesting footage, which just happens to mostly be office stuff?
I still believe that 'The Office' is being aired in Toobworld as a documentary series in the same vein as that one about the small airline at a Southwestern airport. This way, whenever 'The Office' is cited by characters on some other show, then we know it's because they've been watching the show.
But I like the way "Horsenbuggy" thinks, very televisiological!
In a related matter, Dr. Zack Addy of 'Bones' recently had a TMI moment when he revealed what happened to his urine when he was visiting his cousins on their beet farm and ate too much of the crop.
Could it be that Zack is related to the Schrutes of Pennsylvania?
Sorry about that, Chief.....
