Episode Notes
The license plate on Todd Packer's red Corvette is "WLHUNG."

A viewer discretion advisory for sexual content aired with this episode, which is very unusual for a network sitcom.

Todd Packer is supposed to be the American version of Chris Finch from the original BBC version of The Office.

Episode Quotes
Toby: Technically, I am in human resources and Dwight was asking about human anatomy. Umm... I'm just sad that the public school system failed him so badly.

Michael: In the future, when I want to say something funny or witty or do an impression, I will no longer ever do any of those things.
Jim: Does that include 'that's what she said?'
Michael: Uh, yes.
Jim: Wow, that's really hard. You really think you can go all day long? Well, you always left me satisfied and smiling.
Michael: That's what she said!

Michael: When I said before that I was king of forwards, you gotta understand that I don't come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn't arrest a guy who's just delivering drugs from one guy to another.

Jim: Hey, what has two thumbs and hates Todd Packer? (Pointing to himself) This Guy!

Michael: A guy goes to a $5 lady of the night, and he gets crabs. So the next day he goes back to complain and the woman says, "Hey, it was only $5, what did you expect... lobster?"

(Looking at license plate that says 'WLHUNG')
Ryan: Are you a big William Hung fan?
Todd Packer: Why does everybody ask me that? Who the hell is that!?

Michael: For example, I have never slept with an employee, and believe me I could have.
Dwight: Heh, yeah, Meredith.
Michael: No, no, Katherine, remember her? Remember how hot she was? She would have definitely slept with me.
Kevin: She wasn't that hot.
Michael: Yes she was. Damn it, Kevin! Come on.

Episode Goofs
If you look at Kevin's monitor when he's playing the monkey video, you can tell there's no video playing.

Cultural References
Todd Packer: Ex-squeeze me.
