Promos - The Office (Season 9, Episode 18)
The office is excited to see promos for the upcoming WVIA documentary The Office: An American Workplace, which consists of the footage of them that has been compiled over the past nine years.
However, many of the workers are dismayed to learn just how much of their activities have been recorded; for instance, Dwight and Angela's affair that occurred a year ago was captured. Several
excuse themselves and go to the warehouse to talk, turning off their microphones in an unsuccessful effort to keep the discussion private. Pete suggests that Pam talk to dismissed crew member
Brian to learn more. At Brian's house, Pam tells him that upon seeing the old footage she thinks Jim's feelings for her have largely faded, and Brian agrees. When she asks about what the
crew filmed, he tells her that every important moment was captured even when not wearing their microphones. Realizing the extent to which their privacy has been violated, Pam storms out
of Brian's house. On re-watching the promo, Pam decides she is glad that the history of her relationship with Jim has been captured.
Angela and Oscar call Angela's husband Senator Robert Lipton to inform him that the documentary will probably out him and reveal that Angela slept with Dwight. Andy becomes obsessed with online
comments regarding his brief appearance in the promo, posting lengthy replies and even uploading his own video in response to negative reactions. The documentary crew discovers that Nellie
has left at least some of the negative comments, taking pleasure in Andy's annoyance.
Dwight starts dating a Brussels sprout farmer, Esther, while negotiating the purchase of a tractor with her father Henry. Dwight does poorly in the negotiations, yielding to all of
Henry's terms. During the haggling, Esther's sisters flirt with Clark and try to coax him into buying farming equipment. Clark stops Dwight from signing the papers and takes him aside
to tell him that he thinks Esther and her sisters are too physically attractive to be interested in men like them, and that Esther is probably just dating him so that her father
can take advantage of him on the tractor deal. Dwight sees the logic in Clark's suspicion. However, Esther appears and tells Dwight that he should not sign the contract and negotiate
for a better deal. Dwight realizes that Esther does care for him after all and go for a ride on the tractor, much to Angela's dismay.
At the Athlead offices, Jim and Darryl have a meeting with Major League Baseball player Ryan Howard. The meeting ends up with Darryl and Jim reading Ryan's self-written screenplay of
a baseball player turned alien-fighting superhero.

How? I didn’t say Subway sandwiches. It’s called playing the subtext.
I actually wrote a screenplay, it’s called "The Big Piece"
Based on his nickname. Like it already. Let me guess, it’s autobiographical.

There was much more secret filming than I expected. laughs But I am fine with it, I mean it. I am.

People, relax! We are killing it online. Have you guys checked the comments? SmokeThatSkinwagon says: "You guys are killing it!" I mean, we’re internet sensations guys!

These chicks are way too hot to be into us. Esther’s just pretending to like you so that you’ll buy her daddy a new tractor.
Yes. Her sister’s trying to seduce me into buying an auger with her.
What? Has the warranty expired on the auger you have now?

I just mean because you know us and you like observed us for ten years and I feel like he’s- I just feel like…he’s so into his work right now and….I don’t know, am I crazy?
No, you’re not crazy.
Well, I wish that made me feel better. Listen, so everybody saw the promos and they’re kinda freaking out. Brian laughs Cause it seems like you got a lot of private stuff on camera-
You know, stuff people didn’t intend for everyone to see. And they kinda want to know how much.
They want to know how much what?
How much stuff you got.
Pretty much everything.
Well yeah, but what if we turned our mike packs?
They’ve got parabolic mikes, they can pick you up a hundred yards away, so…no if you were around there, they got you.
So we basically had no privacy for ten years.
That’s not really true, I mean-
Um…yeah, I gotta, I gotta go.
Oh no, hang on a second. Pam, I’m sorry, I- I- I can explain this so much better.
No I think you explained it.

Maybe you’re right. Esther’s a ten and the best I’ve ever done is Angela who’s a nine and she rejected me.
A Scranton nine, but yeah, point taken. Hey, let’s go out tonight and just score a couple fours huh? I mean there are no games with fours.
Who needs a new tractor anyway? Maybe we’re the kinda guys who end up with a tractor that’s already been rode hard and put away muddy.
Screw new tractors. Guys like us, we gotta plant our seed a different way.
Dwight, we need to talk.
I don’t know that there’s anything left for us to talk about, Esther.
Look, we’re gonna have the tractor for the same amount of work days but my dad is planning on leasing it to the Vanderkirk brothers on the weekends.
So you’re going to be paying more, but he’s putting on ten times the miles and he’s pocketing a profit behind your back.
You need to tell him you want a deal based on miles or he can just stick that tractor where the sun don’t shine.
That shady grove out by Willard’s pond.
So, you’re fine with me not leasing the tractor? I mean, our courtship can proceed?
Of course. laughs You didn’t just think I was tractor bait, did you?
