Drug Testing - The Office (Season 2, Episode 20)
Original Air Date: April 27, 2006
On his way into work, Dwight finds a partial joint in the parking lot. He puts on
his volunteer sheriff's uniform and goes to investigate. He begins by questioning
all of his co-workers. (He explains that he has to question Angela to make it not look
suspicious. Michael tells him to relax and calls him a narc.
In the breakroom, Pam urges Jim to do his impressions of the other employees. They both
did their impression of Stanley at the same time and Pam calls "jinx". Of course this
means that Jim can't talk until he buys Pam a coke. The cokes were sold out.
Dwights announces that he has called in drug testers to find the owner of the joint.
Michael quickly cancels the order because the night before he inhaled pot smoke at
an Alicia Keys concert. He was afraid he would not pass the test.
Anxiously wanting to teach his employees about the dangers of drug use, Michael calls a
meeting in the conference room.
When Michael confesses his fears about the drug test to Dwight, Dwight immediately steps
up and takes the test for Michael. Feeling guilty about the deceit, Dwight turned in his
resignation to the Sheriff's Department. Because of the gesture, Michael dawned Dwight
with the title of Security Supervisor of the branch.
Pam broke down and bought a coke for Jim to buy from her so he could start talking again.
She told him she couldn't go the whole day without being able to talk to him, especially a day
when Dwight was in a cop's uniform.

Thanks. M-m-munchies. Who wants some munchies?
I don’t think Michael’s ever done drugs. I don’t know if anyone has ever offered him any.
Oscar visited Mexico when he was five to attend his great-grandmother’s funeral. What does that mean to a United States law enforcement officer? He’s a potential drug mule.
Have you ever taken any illegal drugs?
No, I have not.
Do you think it’s possible that maybe you could have had some drugs in your system without you knowing about it?
What are you implying?
Have you ever… pooped… a balloon?
Okay. I’m done with this.

Is that supposed to be me?
Oh, hey Stanley. Uh, I was just doing an impression.
I do not think that is funny.
He does everyone in the office.
in unison I do not think that is funny.
Jinx! Buy me a coke.
No, no, no, no talking. Jim is not allowed to talk until after he buys me a coke. Those are the rules of jinx, and they are unflinchingly rigid. Jim puts money in drink machine, selection is sold out
Sold out? That has never happened in the history of jinx.
Sorry, that’s not my problem.
presses drink button, looks at camera, makes Jim-face
I know you’re innocent, but I can’t look like I’m treating you any differently.
Where were you yesterday after work?
Uh-oh. Uh-oh. Who’s he calling? Ratting somebody out. Narc! Narc! Kevin?
That is so good, Michael
Remember the narc bit? laughs Uh-oh, who’s in trouble?
Attention everyone. Drug testers are coming in a couple of hours to test everyone’s urine.
Waa… what? What are you talking about?
Company policy. If drugs are found on the premises there is automatic drug testing conducted within twenty-four hours.
Is that true, Toby?
Oh, when you sign your job application you agree to comply with random drug testing.
Two nights ago, I went to an Alicia Keys concert at the Montage Mountain Performing Arts Center. I scored these great aisle seats. Anyway, after the opening act this beautiful girl sits down next to me and I never get to meet girls with lip rings and she had one. I don’t know exactly how this happened but one of her friends started passing around some stuff and they said it was clove cigarettes, and I’m sure that it was clove cigarettes. Everybody in the aisle was doing it.
Okay, attention everyone the drug testing has been cancelled. Instead, I will be going around to each of you and doing a visual inspection.
No you can’t do that.
I can do that, it is my office.
No you cannot. It has to be official, and it has to be urine.
Hmmm. Ha. under his breath Alright. Great.
Kevin, what prescription drugs are you taking, besides Rogaine?
I’m not taking Rogaine.
Angela, what about you?
I don’t take any prescription drugs.
You’re not on anything?
Gives Dwight a knowing look
So the first time we went out to dinner, it was like, whatever, fine, but I was so nervous. So this time I wanted to be special, so I bought a new dress! Jim hunches his shoulders and grins One of those kinds that is kinda low cut at top to show something, but not everything. Jim shakes his head no in agreement I mean not everything, Jim. Jim shakes his head in agreement I promise, I’m not that kind of…
Hey guys, what’s going on?
We’re having the best conversation. Jim, eyes wide, shakes his head, no
Oh, okay. Well, Michael wants to see everyone in the conference room. Jim shakes his head. Seems relieved to be getting away from Kelly But you know what? We have a few minutes so you guys should definitely finish up your conversation. Jim nods his head as if to say, “Gee, thanks, Pam.”
So, I was looking so hot…
It has come to my attention that some people here think that the use of drugs is something to laugh about.
We don’t feel that way.
No, not at all.
You were the one joking around calling Dwight a narc.
No, uh, no. That was a test. I was testing you, and you all failed. Miserably. When I said that Dwight was a narc, how many of you defended him? How many of you said, “Hey, you know what, he’s right? What he’s doing is protecting this office from the evils of drugs.”
Thank you, Michael.
I am ridiculously anti-drug. So anti-drug that I am above suspicion in any way that involves suspicion, or testing of any kind.
Drugs ruin lives people. Drugs destroy careers. Take Cheech and Chong everybody knows that Cheech and Chong are funny, but just imagine how funny they would be if they didn’t smoke pot. I want everybody to take a look to their left. Now I want everybody to take a look to their right. One of those people will be dead from drug use at some point in their lives. This year more people will use cocaine than will read a book to their children.
Where did you get these facts?
Are these facts scaring you, or are they not?
They are not.
Do you think that smoking drugs is cool? Do you think that doing alcohol is cool?
No, I don’t. I have a glass of red wine with dinner about once a week. For the antioxidants.
Okay, enough, enough, enough! I have written down a list of illegal drugs. Take a gander. How many of these are you familiar with?
Hookah is not an illegal drug, Michael.
Yes it is.
No it’s not. It’s a type of pipe. You can fill it with tobacco, often mixed with fruit, or other flavors.
Okay, you know what, Toby? Pam, can you take this down? Pam throws her hands up to indicate she has no notepad In addition to Toby’s urine being tested, I would like to test his blood and his hair.
You can’t do that.
I can test anyone randomly, and I have chosen you randomly.
That’s not random.
Okay, eeny, meenie, miney, moe, is random. Okay, you know what? I’m going to need a volunteer to select one of these words and tell us of something tragic that happened in either their lives, or the lives of a loved one. Yeah, Pam.
I know that Jim has an amazing story about a relative of his who got caught up in the world of drugs.
Really? Jim shakes his head no
Jim it’s okay. You can t… Jim looks at Pam and shakes his head, Pam looks at him and gestures for Jim to go up and tell his story This would be a good place to let it out, Jim. These are people you can trust. These are people who care about you. Jim shakes his head no It’s okay, just we will not judge you. We are here to not judge you. Jim stands up Oh, he’s doing it, okay. Jim looks at Pam It’s okay. Jim pretends to try, looking teary eyed, shakes his head no, mouths “I can’t” and sits back down. Pam is amazed. Oh. Okay, are you sure? Jim shakes his head. Kevin pats his shoulder That looked like it was going to be good. Alright. Pam nods in admiration at Jim Okay, well.
Wow! He really pulled out the big guns. Fake crying. Did not expect that.
The point I’m trying to make with all of this people is that I hate drugs. I hate them, and based upon what I have seen you all don’t quite hate ’em as much as I do so you are going to have a drug test, and I am not.
No, you will be tested.
Yes, I will not be.
You will be. That is the law according to the rules.
Okay, well Dwight just know that I’ve been very busy today and I got a lot of work to do and I wasn’t planning on going to the bathroom and I don’t even know if anything is going to come out, okay? So good. Thank you.
Hi, Linda. Dwight Schrute, Assistant Regional Manager. You might remember testing my urine a few years back when I was applying to be a volunteer sheriff’s deputy.
We test a lot of urine.
Mine was green.
Oh, right. How are you?
I’m all better.
So I need you to do some work on the St. Andrews account. I need your urine. I need some filing done.
What kind of filing?
Just forget it. Just the urine.
That goes directly to the tester.
Just. I need your urine.
Like in a cup?
Yes in a cup, we’re not animals, Dwight.
For what purpose?
It’s none of your business.
Then I refuse.
Okay. Alright. Just, I went to an Alicia Keys concert, over the weekend, and I think I may have gotten high accidentally by a girl with a lip ring.
Are you serious?
I need clean urine for the lady.
But that’s illegal.
Don’t think of it that way. It’s like, urine goes all over the place. You know, there’s no controlling it. It just… goes
Not my urine.
A cup could find its way under the urine. It might be an accident. It happens.
Were you forced to do drugs at this concert?
No, just look. Look. Just… just fill up the cup.
Do you want to give Michael your urine?
I want him to have all the urine he needs.
You’re not going to get my permission on this.
I know that. Don’t you think I know that?
Yeah, we do testing all over the country.
Cool. Hey, are you guys hiring?
You want to work at the urinalysis lab?
My father’s name was Dwight Schrute. My grandfather’s name was Dwight Schrute. His father’s name Dwide Schrude. Amish. I loved my father very much. Every morning he’d wake up at dawn and make us biscuits with gravy. When I was little my dad and I played a lot of games together. My dad cheated a lot but I never busted him on it. I would have, except I didn’t know about it. He didn’t tell me till years later. I was shocked when I found out.
What? Jim shakes his head Did you want to tell me something? You look like you want to tell me something. Jim shakes his head no You look like you have something really important to say and you just can’t for some reason. Jim smiles Come on, you can tell me. Jim, you can tell me anything. Jim stops smiling and looks down. Pam wonders what that means
I’d like a magazine.
We just need urine, sir.
I’d still like one.
Dwight. Well, I passed the test thanks to you and your untainted pee. Thank you very much.
What’s wrong? Where’s your costume?
It’s a uniform and I turned it in today when I tendered my resignation.
I took an oath when I was sworn in and I broke that oath today.
placing a coke can in front of Jim Here. Jim looks confused Just buy it from me. I haven’t talked to you in hours and it’s been weird and I really want to know what the hell’s going on with Dwight. Pam scoots the coke can towards Jim. Jim pulls out his wallet and hands Pam a dollar. He gives the coke back to Pam
How much time do you have left on your break?
Since you did such a good job with the investigation, I decided to pull a few strings. Call in a few favors. and I’ve decided to make you official security supervisor of the branch.
That’s fantastic because I’ve always felt that the security here sucked .
So you wanna? Thanks.
Dwight K. Schrute, I hereby declare you an honorary voluntary corporal in charge of assisting all activities security.
Here’s your badge.
Thank you, Michael. Very nice. Great. To Hank Can I have a gun?
No, I don’t have a gun.
Okay, I’ll have to bring in my bow staff.
I don’t think so.
salutes Thank you, Michael.
No. Oh. Uh…awkwardly salutes
I need to go over some details with you.
Alright. to Hank Well, Thank you.
First of all, Hank, how many orange traffic cones do you have?
Wow. What a terrible day to not be able to talk. Dwight was literally carrying around his own urine and dressed like one of the Village People. Why does he do the things that he does for Michael? I just don’t get it. What is he getting out of that relationship?
