Someone leaves a nasty mess on the carpet in Michael's office, which shakes his illusion of being loved by the staff. To try to re-gain his popularity and seem like a regular guy, he takes back his old desk among the sales team (where Jim sits) and initiates a sales contest to rally the troops. Jim is displaced from his seat and has to sit in the back next to chatty Kelly, and away from Pam.
Angela Kinsey, Leslie David Baker, Kate Flannery, Oscar Nunez, Brian Baumgartner, and Phyllis Smith are still credited as guest stars on this episode, as it was filmed earlier than the previous episode when they had been promoted to starring roles.
Jim's license plate number is CHT-8635.
Pam: Roy and I just got back from the Poconos. I get ten vacation days a year, and I try to hold off taking them for as long as possible. And this year I got to... the third week in January.
Michael: Last week I would have given a kidney to anyone in this office. I would have reached right into my stomach and pulled it out for them. But now, no. I hope they ask, so they can hear me say, 'No. I only give my organs to my real friends, go get yourself a monkey kidney.'
Pam: (On Jim's voicemail) Sudoku. Moderate. 18 minutes. Suck on that, Halpert!
Michael: I am the victim of a hate crime. Stanley knows what I'm talking about.
Stanley: That is not what a hate crime is.
Michael: Well I hated it.
