Cafe Disco - The Office (Season 5, Episode 27)
Michael still has his lease on the Michael Scott Paper Company "office" and, concerned that the office is still tense from the recent management by Charles Miner, Michael decides to convert the "office" into a dance hall called
Cafe Disco for his employees. None of the employees care to join him (with the brief exceptions of Erin and Kevin), much to the disappointment of Michael. Michael who then plays music through the ventilation system to try tempting them to come.
Following Michael's brilliant idea to play music through the ventilation system, Phyllis ultimately gives in and joins Michael; she stops in to invite her husband Bob Vance but his secretary, who resembles Phyllis, tells her Bob is not available, making
Phyllis jealous. In Cafe Disco, Phyllis throws out her back after dancing too hard. Dwight brings her into the conference room and starts giving her a kind of massage he usually gives injured horses. The two spend a long amount of time together and
she eventually confides in Dwight that she fears her husband is having an affair with his new secretary, but the two laugh together when Phyllis realizes how ridiculous the idea sounds.
When the rest of the office is told of Phyllis' injury, they take this as confirmation that the Cafe Disco is a bad idea and get onto Michael for what happened to Phyllis. Disappointed and angry, Michael instructs Erin to close up the
Cafe Disco. Kelly comes down with her and the two start dancing after Erin turns on the stereo. This catches the eye of two male employees from Vance Refrigeration, and soon Cafe Disco is full of both Dunder Mifflin employees and non-employees,
much to Michael's delight.
Oscar is mildly baffled that Erin actually invited one of her friends to come, as opposed to being ashamed of the office. Kelly and Andy get into a competitive dance-off with each other, and Kevin makes out in the
corner with his girlfriend Lynne.
Meanwhile, Jim and Pam decide to avoid the expense and stress of a wedding and elope to a simple courthouse ceremony in Youngstown, Ohio without letting their co-workers know. Pam comes to work with a wedding dress and Jim picks up flowers in
the office parking lot. As they are leaving, they decide to stop in at Cafe Disco, and end up having a lot of fun, making them decide they really want an actual wedding ceremony after all. Phyllis eventually recovers and dances with Bob
in the Cafe Disco.
Michael tries to encourage Angela to dance, but she refuses because she does not like "the general spirit of music." When Angela starts softly shaking her foot to the beat, however, Michael is extremely satisfied with
the small victory. At the end of the episode, an extremely nervous Andy gets his ear pierced by Kelly with a pin in the bathroom.

Oh, really? Ok.
Just sent it.
What about the rest of you? complete silence
At Dunder-Mifflin there is a very strict no lunch with the boss policy and I don’t know who instituted it. I think it started right after my predecessor stepped down, but at the Michael Scott Paper Company I really enjoyed having lunch with Pam and Ryan everyday. So, rules be damned, I wanna have lunch with these people.
Who else? Who else? Ryan?
I don’t do lunch. I’m eating five small meals a day now.
Now that I’m back to doing the job of a temp, again, I find that food is one thing I can control.
Ok. Anyone? Anyone? At all? Accounting? I am accounting on you to go to lunch with me.
No. I don’t want to stay late to have a two hour lunch.

Did somebody here leave a map in the printer to Youngstown, Ohio?
Attention, office. Who here is planning a trip to Youngstown, Ohio? I will take your silence to mean that you are all hiding something. This location is the Superior Court –
So someone is going to a court. Big deal.
It is a big deal. Cause there’s only a handful of reasons why someone would ever go to a courthouse in Ohio and not be charged with a crime. To claim an inheritance from a deceased relative. To obtain a learner’s permit at age 14 and a half instead of 15. Erin, let me see your birth certificate.
There are other reasons to go to Ohio.
We’re getting married today.
So, it turns out it’s the closest place to get a marriage license without a 3 day waiting period.

Ok. So, we’re going through all the wedding plans and, boy, it is complicated.
And very expensive.
Very expensive. Cause you say you want a small wedding and that’s great but then you have to invite –
You can’t leave anyone out.
Ok, just get to the good part.
Ok. Right. Oh, so this morning we are having breakfast together and I just looked up from my cereal and I said, ” You know what I want to do today? I want to marry you.”
