The Office: 9 Deleted Scenes That Should Have Made The Final Cut

Thanks to different streaming networks, The Office has a new wave of popularity. Although the show was on for nine seasons (2005-2013), fans always want more Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, and Dwight Schrute at Dunder Mifflin. Those behind the series have since released deleted scenes, cold opens that didn’t make the cut, and storylines that were ignored. And YouTube has a plethora of them available for fans.

While The Office created the perfect sitcom, there were some deleted scenes that fans wished they saw. Whether they were simply hilarious or they added more depth to a particular scene, there are more than a handful of scenes that deserved a place in the aired episodes.

9 Andy Bernard’s Letter For His “Cousin,” Michelle Obama (Season 9, Episode 3)

In season 9’s “Andy’s Ancestry,” Nellie pulled a prank on Andy by telling him that she did some research on his family tree and that he was a distant cousin of former First Lady, Michelle Obama. Andy was incredibly proud of this fact and boasted it around the office, even though everyone knew Michelle Obama being a member of Andy’s family didn’t make sense.

In the deleted scene, there was a moment where Andy read a letter he wrote for Michelle to the camera. In the letter, he introduced himself as her family member and that he ran a successful paper company. He later told her that he would love to get together — but not on “October 20th,” as he had other commitments… This moment is so typical Andy and deserved to be in the series because it proved Andy really believed Nellie’s lie.

8 A Proper Bob Vance Introduction (Season 2, Episode 10)

In “Christmas Party,” Phyllis introduced her new boyfriend, Bob Vance, to her co-workers. He introduced himself as “Bob Vance, Vance Refrigeration,” proving that he worked in the Scranton Business Park. Phyllis would later go on to marry Bob, but it would have been fun to know more about their private lives.

In a deleted scene, Phyllis had a talking head where she told the cameras that she was bringing a date to the party — Bob Vance. The two met at work and formed a relationship. With an endearing smile that fans loved, Phyllis whispered to the cameras that Bob was her boyfriend. Seeing this side of Phyllis’s relationship would have been memorable for viewers.

7 Michael’s Sage Sales Advice While Training Dwight (Season 2, Episode 14)

In “The Carpet,” Michael was disturbed to find some kind of excrement on the floor of his office. The scent was off-putting and made everyone sick. The office had it professionally cleaned while they tried to find out what it was, but this only made it worse. Because of this, Michael had to work in the sales department for the day.

In the deleted scene, Dwight was on a call but when he realized it wasn’t going anywhere, he told the potential client that he would call him in a month. Michel hated Dwight’s quirky response and demanded he made another sales call that involved jokes. According to Michael, he had to tell a joke in order to land the sale. Dwight’s joke, however, offended the client and Michael had to take over. Hilariously, it was Michael who trained Dwight in sales in the first place, so Dwight’s failure was also Michael’s.

6 A Very Cold Meeting Between Pam & Roy’s Parents At His Wedding (Season 9, Episode 2)

One of the most badass things Pam has done in the series was when she attended her ex-fiancé’s wedding. Pam and Jim had been married for a couple of years by season 9 and were in a good place to attend Roy’s wedding after they were given the invite.

Roy’s success made things a little tense for Pam, and it only got worse when Pam ran into Roy’s parents in a deleted scene. They raved about their son and how much they loved their new daughter-in-law. “Laura is really easy to get along with, and she’s loyal,” Roy’s mom told Pam with a condescending smile. The moment was awkward and told so much about Pam’s history with Roy’s family that it should have been included in the final cut.

5 Florida Stanely Knows How To Have A Good Time (Season 8, Episode 15)

Stanley has some funny quotes in The Office and is a totally underrated character. Fans saw his truest self when a group of workers from Scranton was transferred to Florida for a few weeks to launch a new product on behalf of Sabre. While in Florida, Stanley let loose.

Now known as “Florida Stanely,” he showed Jim how to vacation in Florida while also showing up for work. In a deleted scene, Stanley showed Jim a “magic trick” when he poured a mini bottle of rum into Jim’s soda can, only to fill the empty shot bottle back up with iced tea. The iced tea and rum were the same color and the glass appeared full again. According to Stanley, now that the mini bottle appeared full again, he put it back at the minibar so he couldn’t be charged for it. Fans wanted more Florida Stanley, which is why this scene should have stayed in.

4 Dwight Attempted CPR On Pam At The Dundies (Season 2, Episode 1)

In The Office‘s first Dundies, Pam drank too much in fear of the potential Dundie she was bound to win and fell off a barstool after laughing too hard. Jim was there to help her and all was well. But in the deleted scene, Pam fell on the floor and Dwight ran over to assist her. For whatever reason, Dwight ripped off his shirt and tried to give her CPR. Pam was too giggly to care, but Jim helped Pam off the ground and escorted her away from Dwight as he was yelled at by the manager for being shirtless.

The night was a big one for fans, as it was one of the first times Pam and Jim kissed. This scene would have been a fun addition to the episode.

3 Andy Asked Oscar To Fire His Maid In Spanish (A Deleted Cold Open)

Andy was a great guy that had a bad streak in season 9. His character changed a lot over the years; he became less of the adorable Andy and more of the rude, aloof Andy.

In one deleted scene, Andy asked Oscar into his office and asked if he could be the translator between him and his maid. Oscar reluctantly agreed and the two laughed about her kids and had a sweet conversation, but when Oscar asked Andy what he wanted him to say to her, Andy asked Oscar to fire her! Furious, Oscar denied the task but he eventually gave in and did it. The entire scene was total Office cringe humor — perfect for the rest of the episode had it been chosen.

2 Pam Found Out About Cathy & Jim’s Hotel Room Hangout (Season 8, Episode 16)

Fans were screaming at their TVs when Cathy flirted with Jim during their time in Florida for a business trip. With Pam being at home, fans didn’t want Jim to mess his relationship. In the episode, Pam never found out that Cathy spent the majority of the night showering and lying in Jim’s hotel room, but a deleted scene proved a different story.

In the scene, Pam and Darryl called Jim’s hotel room from Scranton. But instead of Jim, it was Cathy who picked up the phone. Pam’s heart dropped in her chest as she spoke to Jim afterward. But she soon realized that Cathy had a crush on Jim and refused to leave his room. This scene would have made all the difference in the actual episode.

1 Dwight’s Prank Gone Wrong (Season 8, Episode 10)

In “Christmas Wishes,” viewers watched the office throw a Christmas party. One deleted scene found Dwight trying to prank Jim by placing a bucket full of random liquids on top of the door and waited until Jim walked through the door for the bucket to fall on his head. While Dwight told the cameras his plan, an unsuspecting Cathy walked in and the bucket fell on her head. Dwight was hilariously annoyed that his prank was ruined and was mad at Cathy for spoiling the fun. Considering fans found Cathy to be an annoying character, this moment should have been kept in.
