PDA - The Office (Season 7, Episode 16)
It is Valentine's Day. Michael and Holly have started dating again, and their bizarre and often sensual public displays of affection (PDA) start to make everyone in the office uncomfortable. Gabe holds a meeting about PDA, saying that Sabre
is tolerant of office relationships, but not PDA, pointing the finger at Michael and Holly (who are shocked that the PDA meeting is about them). They both agree to stop, but while Holly follows through, Michael cannot help himself. Michael
then declares to the office that he genuinely loves Holly, who is at first taken aback, but then reciprocates.
When Michael and Holly make a scene miming sexual actions without touching each other, Gabe reprimands them, suggesting
that they are acting this way to have a full on relationship before Toby returns from jury duty, which would send Holly back to Nashua. Michael then becomes worried that they will have to break up again, but Holly assures him that
they can make it work. Michael points out that they broke up the last time because of that and cannot see Holly for the rest of the day. Michael then confronts Holly to tell her that he is breaking up with her. Holly, however,
says that they should decide for themselves and not let the company decide their future. They both resolve to move in together and announce it to the office.
Jim and Pam have too much champagne during lunch, causing complications when they have to return to work. During the PDA meeting, Dwight lists people that have had sex in the workplace (most of the workers), and Jim and Pam are
not mentioned. Due to their intoxication, they agree to give it a try, but they have a hard time finding a place to do it, from hidden places in the warehouse to Ryan closet. They eventually return to their desks. The two tell the
interviewers that they left for a walk, but Pam gives a knowing smile at the end of the interview.
Gabe arranges a romantic treasure hunt for Erin, but she is stumped at the first clue and asks Andy for help. Despite the fact that he is dating a friend of Darryl named Rachel, Andy is at first reluctant but relents at Erin's
friendly urging. The hunt starts with a puzzle picture, which leads to Gabe's stereo in Darryl's office, which leads to glow in the dark stars in Ryan's closet, leading to sparkling cider with Hank the security guard, and
finally to a Valentine's cookie in the break room. When the cookie tells her to enjoy her Valentine's kiss, Erin thinks she is supposed to kiss Andy. Andy points out Gabe blowing a kiss through the window and leaves awkwardly.

“Roses are red. Violets are blue. Look in the vase to find your first clue.” Oh, my gosh. It’s a romantic scavenger hunt!
Oh, close. It’s a romantic treasure hunt. A scavenger hunt is where you find items from a master list. This is where you follow clues that lead to a prize. Common misuse. Good luck.
But, there’s no clue.

I can’t, ’cause there’s no clue.
The puzzle is the clue.

Aww, nuts. laughs
I don’t know if anyone else feels this way and don’t get me wrong, I love Michael and Holly, and maybe I’m being overly sensitive, but… the PDA.
Yes! The freaking PDA!
Thank you! I mean, I’m thrilled for them.
No one is more thrilled for them than I am…
Yes, yes, absolutely.
…but it’s totally inappropriate.
Yeah, it’s a little much.
Obviously, so happy for them both.
So happy. Yeah.
I don’t know, guys. I, for one, enjoy watching them, because…
No, stop! Just don’t.
Can I finish? Can I finish? Is that okay? I was saying…I enjoy watching them because it makes me horny.
So tell me about your new girlfriend.
She’s neat. Uh, I met her at Darryl’s cousin’s party. We were the only two white people there.
Hey, look at that. Done.
That’s Gabe’s boom box. Come on. We have to go find it.
I wish you well on your quest.
No, come on.
Aww, I mean…
growling Come on!
to Toby I hear them kissing all the time. It’s this horrible plipping sound. You know, it’s like Chinese water torture. Just…makes popping sound like it’s coming from my own head.
Sit. Okay, just close your eyes. massaging Holly’s back
Ohh. Can you get lower?
A little lower.
I cannot keep myself from Michael. Everything he does is sexy. He has this undeniable animal magnetism. He’s a jungle cat. The man exudes sex. He can put both his legs behind his head.
Thank you all for meeting on such sort notice.
sitting in Holly’s lap Yes. Michael Scott, Dunder Mifflin. What is the purpose of this meeting?
Seeing as it’s Valentine’s Day, I felt it would be apropos to have a little refresher course on romance in the workplace.
Perfect. Yes. It is quite apro-propriate. Carry on.
First things first. An office romance is permissible. Not something you’d expect to hear from corporate. Well, guess what. Sabre is 100% tolerant of office romances.
Speaking of, Gabe, I don’t see Erin at this meeting.
Uh, I also don’t see Andy.
OOH! Boom! Face!
I get it. Andy’s slamming my girlfriend. Very funny. What I do not approve of, however, is public displays of affection, or PDAs. PDAs are totally superfluous to a happy, healthy office romance. Perfect example. Look at Jim and Pam.
Yeah. What? Us?
They don’t touch. They don’t kiss. You would hardly even know that they were husband and wife.
Love it. Keep it goin.
Okay. So, PDAs. That’s gonna include behaviors such as hugging, kissing, uh…
Yeah, booby honking. Sure.
Butt honking. Yeah, all the honking.
The one where you start in a crouches position, then you leap…
Sure. Basically, there’s no precise definition, but you know it when you see it. Ahem.
Are you guys listening to this?
What, are you talking about me and Holly?
Maybe you find your own chair.
So we kiss occasionally.
Not occasionally. All the time.
Yeah, and it’s not just the kissing. It’s the flirtatious whispering.
The flirtatious tickling.
Whispering and tickling have their place in business.
That thing were you softly exhale on her neck.
I… Okay, yeah, that’s pretty hot. I will give you that. Look, you are all hypocrites. You all do it.
Michael. Confession: I have done PDA in the office.
I’ve had intercourse in the office.
As has Angela!
As has Ryan. As has Kelly. As has Meredith. As has Phyllis. As has Darryl. As has Creed. Creed smiles and nods As has Michael and as has Holly.
As has Kevin!
She goes to another school.
Okay. Fine. No more PDA.
You win. But here’s what we are going to do. We are going to designate one of our closets as a hook-up zone.
Just leave it how you said…
Michael, that’s absurd. What if two couples want to go at the same time?
Okay, then we have two closets. No, no, we’re gonna have three closets, one for each base, no homers. Yes?
And what is the hook-up zone policy on masturbation?
What? Problem solved.
No, no, it’s great. I love working at Dunder Mifflin, a division of Taliban enterprises.
That’s weird. I mean, that’s weird to have sex in the office. That’s where you work, right?
You know, you’re in a meeting, and nobody knows that you’ve had sex there, except for you and him.
Don’t mind us. You keep working.
Okay. I’ll keep working.
Oh, my God. It’s a song.
What do you think is on it?
softy We should actually probably talk about it outside or we might make Darryl mad.
softly Not if we’re talking like this. I think it’s okay. He doesn’t seem to hear us.
I think he can hear us.
softly That makes sense, ’cause I feel like I’d be able to hear us at this level.
Darryl is a jerk.
No, he’s not.
No, I’m just testing if he can hear.
I can hear you.
Okay. Then no more talking. Let’s just play the song.
Gabe singing The temp at night. The temp at night. The temp at night. The temp at night.
The temp at night?
What do you…
You got it. Pick it up. Take it out.
Pick it up.
Take it out. Pick it up. Pick it up. Pick it up. Take it out.
Sorry to interrupt. Forgot to collect my things.
Ah, the old “leave behind.” Oldest trick in the book. Good thing it’s working.
Oh, no. Michael, I don’t want to make people uncomfortable.
Since when is comfort the most important thing? I mean, I don’t… I don’t sit on your lap because it’s comfortable. I sit on your lap because I like the way your thighs feel on my butt.
Yeah, but if they’re uncomfortable, it makes me uncomfortable.
Oh. Okay. Well, if it makes you uncomfortable, then we’ll stop.
Holly and I are like Romeo and Juliet. And this office is like the dragon that kept them apart.
Hey, you know why people here are complaining? They are jealous of two people in love on Valentine’s Day.
Two people in love?
I love you.
Wait, wait, wait, what do you mean you love me? We’ve only been dating for a week. Do you mean you love me like, “oh, hey, there’s Holly. I love that girl.” Or you do you mean you love me like you love me-love me?
I love you-love you.
Wow, you love me-love me. I love you-love you. both laugh
I am really disappointed in the office’s policy on PDA at this moment. I love you. shakes Holly’s hand
I love you.
Yeah, whatever. No big deal. Just the hottest girl in the world loves me.
Okay, Ryan’s the temp. What does he do at night?
I guess we just have to wait until night and see.
Oh, or maybe not. turns out the lights
gasps Oh. Cool.
How romantic is this?
Right. Do you see a clue or…
Yeah. Did you not see it? “Eat at Hanks” is written in glow-in-the-dark letters above the door
Oh, my gosh.
bursting out of Ryan’s closet Hey.
Andy and Erin
No time to chat.
Well, we were just looking for Ryan, so he’s not here.
Hey. You’re looking for me?
Oh, yeah, we were. We were just looking to say hi. So hey.
No you weren’t.
No, we weren’t.
You wanted to have sex in my office.
Definitely not. That’s disgusting.
No. It’s… it’s cool. Just try to put everything back were you found it. Text me when you’re finished. I’ll be out here.
Hey, you don’t have to…
That was so embarrassing. I’m gonna die.
That was really rough.
Let me make something clear. Jim and I have never and will never have sex in the office.
No, because the office isn’t what I’d consider a romantic place.
Besides, we have something those other people don’t have, which is a home and a bed.
And a shower.
Here, shake. No!
No, don’t touch.
No, we can’t.
No touching. Ah, I’m trying not to touch you.
Almost got you.
Oh, no, so close. Oh. No, we can’t do that. We can’t do this. Ohh.
You’re not touching me.
I don’t know what your body feels like ’cause I can’t touch it.
Okay, this is much worse than before.
Yeah, I agree. This is nasty.
Grab you here.
I will grab you here anyway. laughs
You have to cut it out.
You said you would.
I did say I would, but I was wrong. I can’t stop. You don’t what it is like to love a woman and have her love you back. It is a feeling that cannot and will not, and frankly, cannot be contained.
No one is a bigger fan of sexual touching than me. But with you two, it’s reaching the level of a complex. I can think of three explanations. One: You’re taking MDMA. Street name, ecstasy. I’ve done it, and I know the feeling.
No, I don’t think so.
Number two: You’re desperately trying to fit in a whole relationship before Toby comes back from jury duty and Holly has to go back to Nashua. Or three: You’re at an age where your sexual climaxes aren’t as powerful so you need to overcompensate with foreplay, taboo behavior.
Yes, it was that. It’s that one.
Yes. Number three.
Give me all your money and take off your clothes.
We’re not supposed to PDA.
Come one. Nobody’s looking. What’s wrong?
I haven’t thought about you having to go back to Nashua.
Maybe we didn’t want to think about it. We can make it work. We’ll date long-distance.
That’s what we said last time. Remember? We broke up on the drive. How’s this gonna be any different?
We weren’t in love last time.
I was in love with you.
I’m not saying it won’t be hard. But we can make it work. That’s what she said.
Oh. One Erin Special, please.
Here’s your bottle of sparkling cider.
laughs That’s my favorite.
I’m now supposed to tell you to enjoy a mind-hunt break and look for a heart or some bleep in the break room when you’re through.
through the window at Michael Hey, buck up, buddy!
Make that face he likes.
Hey. Hey. Come on. You’re hurting him.
It’s like a time bomb…
…is ticking down. When it goes off, no more kissing. No more hugging.
Sexual time bomb.
Just rock. Shh.

No. into recorder Saving the world has never been this hard.
Okay. Shh. Have you talked to her about your feelings? Women really go for that crap.
No, I can’t talk to her. I can’t even look at her without thinking about it ending.

Which one? I have a lot of stupid faces.

Oh, yes. There’s a note. “A little cookie for you, my miss. But the real treasure is your Valentine’s kiss.”
Mm. Oh. We’re suppose to…mmm leans in to kiss Andy
Hmm. points to Gabe blowing a kiss to Erin
Holly, I love you so, so, so much. And I think we need to break up.
What? What are you talking about?
Actually, it’s Valentine’s Day. Shouldn’t be doing this today. I’ll talk to you tomorrow.
No, we’re gonna talk now. You’re not breaking up with me.
You’re gonna go back to Nashua eventually, and I can’t handle it. So let’s just…let’s…
What if I said it wasn’t up to them?
The company. Nobody knows our future, but it’s not gonna be decided by the company. It’s not gonna be decided by anybody but us. What we are is up to you and me.
Ladies and gentlemen, I have an announcement to make. As of today, officially, Holly and I are moving into together. Yay! claps Thank you. Thank you. Oscar, this must be tough for you, watching this go down. You could not stand in the way of true love, my friend!
Are you kidding? I wasn’t trying to break you guys up.
Better luck next time, pal.
Well, the point is, there will no longer be any need for PDA here at the office between us because, when we get home, we are going to make love to and with one another, and that, to me, is the best Valentine’s Day present that a person could receive. So I bid you all adieu.
Go on. Kiss each other already. they kiss
Suck it, Oscar. This must kill you.
I just told them to do it!
No. We took a walk.
We took a walk.
My perfect Valentine’s Day? I’m at home, three cell phones in front of me, fielding desperate calls from people who want to buy one of the 50 restaurant reservations I made over six months ago.
Anybody can be Prince Charming one day a year with the dinner and the flowers and all that. But you know what impresses me? When a guy can do that no days a year.
Flowers, diamonds, three-course meal, violinist comes to my table to serenade me…
Pizza, soda, the moon, someone to share it with.
What are our plans for tonight? Umm…
