The Office Episodes

Episode - The Injury

Pam receives a call from Michael saying he's injured. Pam offers to call him an ambulance, but Michael insists he justs needs a ride to work. Jim puts Michael on speakerphone and asks him to repeat what happened. Michael says he burned his foot on his George Foreman grill.

Quote: I enjoy having breakfast in bed. I like waking up to the smell of bacon, sue me. And since I don't have a butler, I have to do it myself. So, most nights before I go to bed, I will lay six strips of bacon out on my George Foreman grill. Then I go to sleep. When I wake up, I plug in the grill. I go back to sleep again. Then I wake up to the smell of crackling bacon. It is delicious, it's good for me; it's the perfect way to start the day.

Dwight, without question, races out of the office to go get Michael. Michael wanted anyone but Dwight to pick him up.

Before Dwight can get out of the parking lot, he crashed into a pole. He stumbles out of the car and vomits. He continues on to Michael's house.

When Michael finally arrives, he requests that everyone just treat him normally and that no one freak out about his foot. When he doesn't get treated the way he imagined, he explains that normal means, any way you would treat a seriously ill family member. Dwight starts to show some odd behavior promting some of the staff to think that he may have seriously hurt himself in the accident.

Dwight notices the mp3 player Pam is playing with and begins to give her tips on where to get music, etc... He is actually making sense and not being at all like Dwight. He's telling funny jokes and being normal.

Michael complains to his mom that no one in the office is taking care of him.

Later, Dwight openly flirts with Angela in the breakroom. He says she's sweeter than candy.

Dwight then starts to display odd behavior such as calling Creed, Dad. And during a question and answer session he had his head raised without knowing it. Dwight then collapses on his desk and Jim urges that they take him to the hospital. Michael is upset that Dwight is getting all the attention. Michael gives in and Michael, Jim and Dwight head to the hospital.

While trying to get Dwight into the elevator, he falls onto the couch. Jim sprays him with a water bottle to wake him up. Once in the car, Dwight finds a liquor bottle in the back seat (of Meredith's van) and begins to drink. Jim squirts him with water again. When Michael and Dwight begin to fight, Jim squirts them both. It's soooooo funny.

Michael tries to get the doctor to admit that a foot injury is worse than a head injury but is unable to do so.

The doctor orders a CAT scan and Michael asks if he can put his foot in too, but the doctor says with a burn, you just look at the skin and see whether its red and swollen. Thats what she said, quips Dwight. The doctor laughs and Michael is pissed that Dwight stole his joke.

Jim calls Pam to let her know that Dwight is going to be alright. Angela is peering into Pam's workspace to listen in, but Pam catches her and Angela disappears. Pam then goes to "Oscar" to tell him Dwight's condition. This puts Angela at ease.
