* ''ParksAndRecreation'' takes place in the same universe as well. When all three shows crossover, there will be a three-way fistfight between David, Michael, and Leslie which will somehow end up with them all in a threesome together. Also Karen Filippelli and Ann Perkins will be revealed to be twins SeparatedAtBirth and they will pull a TwinSwitch, ''[[TheParentTrap Parent Trap]]'' style.

[[WMG: Karen Filippelli is [[ActorAllusion Karen Scarfolli]].]]
Considering the fact that she was a teenager in high school during FreaksAndGeeks, which took place 1980-1981, Karen looks very good for her age.

[[WMG: Philip Halpert was conceived in the workplace.]]
The episode "PDA" aired February 10, 2011. In that episode, Pam and Jim were trying to have sex in the office. Pam's last episode before going on maternity leave was "Gettysberg," which aired November 17, 2011. The math adds up.

Dunder Mifflin was constructed under a toxic runoff, which has seeped into their water supply. This has led the entire cast to believe that there's an invisible camera person documenting their entire lives. This also explains why many outsiders like David, Holly and Erin never once question the fact that there would be a camera crew at a paper company: they just [[ObfuscatingStupidity secretly roll with it]].

With all of the terrible examples of employee and company behavior captured on camera, its a wonder why anyone at DM would still allow it to be taped and broadcast... unless the company is getting something big for it. Being a struggling business in a dying industry, it keeps itself afloat by allowing its branches (largely Scranton) to be filmed for broadcast as a documentary in other countries in exchange for a continual amount of money

This explains why the cameras are allowed in the boardrooms, events, and stockholder meetings of Dunder Mifflin, its all in the contract. It can't be aired in North America so the company's reputation can be protected and all employees have signed away the right to use the footage for any lawsuit. .

[[WMG: Michael Scott will become more mature before he leaves]]
* "Threat level midnight", nuff said.
* As well as "Todd Packer"
* Judging from the last few episodes before his leave, I'd argue that this is confirmed. I'll copy paste an analysis I wrote on reddit regarding his development:

->Michael Scott is the most well-developed character on television that I can think of...ever. [Edit: I meant to say television comedy here] Every dimension of his being works out beautifully. If any single character on comedic comedy shows the full depth of a person, it's Michael. He is simultaneously a very selfish person, but also very caring. He is very offensive, but also strives to be politically correct (in a very misguided way). He is a fantastic salesman, but a horrible people person. There's a bunch of hypocrisies in his character, but the writing and Steve Carrell's acting handled them very well.

->At his heart, Michael is just a very lonely guy, who wants, above all else, to feel accepted. This is at the heart of almost all of his quirks and problems. Not just that he wants to feel accepted, but also the fact that he is unable to be honest with himself about who he really is. His self-dishonesty leads to him being quite dense with himself and others which leads to him being more isolated from others. It's a viscious cycle.

->Consider the mug on his desk. "World's Greatest Boss". Who gave him that? He did himself. Similarly he put up fake diplomas on the wall, etc. He loves to brag to people about various things in his life (especially his sex life) in order to gain approval from "the guys", and he has shown the tendency to constantly misrepresent reality to make himself feel better. The episode with Dwight's speech? When Dwight did better than him, Michael left and got a beer to avoid it, and then rationalized it away by saying that since Dwight was inspired by him then Michael is a great speaker as well.

->He is a treasure trove of defense mechanisms. All to hide himself from himself. They don't all result in bad things. Because of his tendency to equate work with family, he has intense care for the people at his office....like the time he was the only one to visit Pam's exhibit. No matter how much he upsets people, he always tries to be there for them, like a father, because fathers feel needed and wanted. This kind of acceptance is the one thing he wants in his life, above all else.
->Towards the end of his run, he finds true love in Holly, proposes to her, etc. At the last Dundies, everyone there sang to him and gave him a Dundie. The beginning of his last episode he throws the his old mug into the trash and replaces it with the Dundie, symbolizing his realization that he has gained acceptance from his employees. Towards the middle of the episode, he has a small nervous breakdown, resulting in him reaching into the trash and pulling out that old "Best Boss" mug again, until he gets Holly on the phone again to reassure him. This isn't a coincidence...its pretty obvious symbolism. He matured quite a bit throughout the series (despite his antics becoming arguably stupider, he has emotionally matured, I feel), but still has a bit to go. But at least he has someone to go through this struggle with...Holly, and their thousands of kids he will be friends with.

[[WMG: Jan is using the Main/LysistrataGambit on Michael.]]
Jan seems to win all of the many arguments the two have because she threatens to withhold sex if she doesn't get her way. It's Michael Scott we're talking about here, but still, there's no other way he could be ''that'' whipped. He's tried to use it on her at least once; he probably got the idea from her using it on him.
* In [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Negotiation one episode]], Michael used it on Jan to get a raise.






[[WMG: The show is a hallucination of Creed]]
Creed never stopped being homeless, and he eventually went insane. This is why some of the personalities seem so ridiculous that they would've likely been fired several times over - including Creed's. He's acting like he would were he not hallucinating.
* But Creed's playing himself, so... [[SchrodingersButterfly Uh-oh.]]



[[WMG: The finale will have the documentary revealed to be a sadistic prank to film a comedy show.]]
Actors would include Creed, Molly, and the majority of the Scranton branch's clients. The episode will end with a baseball bat heading toward the camera and a [[TheBlairWitchProject Blair Witch Project]] style screencap saying "These tapes were found buried in the woods outside of Scranton, New York. Attempts to find the producers and the actors filmed have been unsuccessful."
* If the tapes were found outside of [[DidNotDoTheResearch Scranton, NEW YORK,]] then something REALLY mysterious must have happened!



[[WMG: The penultimate episode will see Michael Scott get fired. The Finale will see the first episode of TheOffice finally hit the air.]]
The producers of the show had been told to "follow Michael Scott and his friends and employees until he is fired then come back to us with a series". They had expected to maybe get a week of material.
* At the launch party, Dwight and Michael will engage in WildMassGuessing as to what will happen, including the question of whether Jim and Pam will hook up. Pan to Jim and Pam Halpert looking at the camera in a awkwardly ironic fashion. Fade to Black.
* Confirmed false.

[[WMG: Michael is a high-functioning autistic.]]
It would explain why his social skills are so lacking, despite being at least somewhat competent in other respects and having received a position as branch manager.
* He's socially awkward because he didn't have any friends or a father figure when he was growing up. After all, he wanted to be friends with his coworkers.

[[WMG: Marjorie died and her ghost is haunting the office.]]
Marjorie was an extra for the first few episodes, but in recent seasons she's barely seen. Yet she can somehow be viewed lurking in the back of crowds or lingering just off screen...
*



[[WMG: The mug Michael gave Jim is his first step in a lighthearted {{Plan}}.]]
The final scene of the series will show Michael staying behind after everyone has gone home, then revealing that he has put Jim's "World's Best Boss" mug in jello as the theme song plays, reflecting the ending of the first episode.

[[WMG: Michael is a deeply, deeply repressed homosexual.]]
He's almost obsessed with the idea of having as many children as possible. In his mind, having children equates with heterosexuality, and if he has enough kids, it will make him straight. His overly sexist comments and childish fixation on the size of women's breasts is just compensation.
* Exhibit A: in his [[strike: journal]] diary, he notes how "hot" he thinks Ryan is.
* Exhibit B: Every other scene Michael and Ryan share.
* [[SarcasmMode Because gay people never have children.]] It's also heavily implied that Michael wants kids because he doesn't want to be lonely. He could still be a closeted homosexual or [[NoBisexuals bisexual]], though.

[[WMG: In "Scott's Tots", Dwight put himself as third on the Employee of the Month results.]]
If Jim had kept any level of composure he might have selected the employee after himself and Pam, for which Dwight surely would have planned.

[[WMG: The camera crew hasn't actually been there since the end of Season 3, but the good people of Dunder-Mifflin think it is because they've gone insane.]]
This would explain why everyone seems so much more eccentric now.

[[WMG: Rolf is the Scranton Strangler.]]
Dwight's account of how he met his best friend Rolf is quite suspicious: Rolf was asking for shoes that would allow him to move faster without leaving footprints. Rolf himself is quite the creepy character and displays a deep hatred for women with questionable moral behavior, which could be a typical serial killer trait. Not to mention his over the top verbally violent outbursts.
And it fits with Dwight's personality to have inadvertently befriended a serial killer.
This will probably be addressed by a quick glance at a picture on a newspaper of Rolf having been caught and identified as the Scranton Strangler, and much later Dwight commenting on how he hasn't heard from Rolf in a while.
* The "Costume Contest" ep says he's still on the loose.



[[WMG: The seventh season will be the final season]]
With Steve Carrel officially leaving after the upcoming season, it seems logical to end the series with Michael leaving for whatever reason. And since the show's not really up to steam as it has been, it might be for the best to end it there. Hopefully he'll leave with Holly and a "Where are they now" style epilogue will wrap up the series.
* Apparently not, as B.J. Novak and others have signed contracts for an eighth season.



[[WMG: Creed is the Scranton Strangler.]]
Though that might be *too* obvious...



[[WMG: David Brent will be back]]
Since Carrel is going to leave the show, Michael Scott will either be fired or retire, and get a happy ending with Holly. Then Dunder Mifflin/Sabre will hire a new regional manager for the office, and that new regional manager will be David Brent. After all, Brent did asked Michael if Dunder Mifflin was hiring. They will be hiring, once Michael is gone.
Okay, that's mostly wishful thinking. But it would be awesome, even if it would be planned to last only for one season, or a few episodes at the beginning of the 8th.
* Almost, but not quite. Brent was indeed one of the candidates for Michael's job. However, he didn't get it.

[[WMG: Toby will transfer to Nashua to keep Holly at Scranton]]
Seems like this would be a thing to keep Holly and let Toby escape Michael. Maybe Michael would treat him as a friend after this?
* Jossed. Both Holly and Michael left Dunder-Mifflin altogether. [[ItWasHisSled Though you probably know this already.]]

[[WMG: Alternately, Michael with either transfer to Nashua, or just quit and move there in order to be with Holly]]
It would be an easy way to write Michael out of the show.
* Jossed. Both Holly and Michael left Dunder-Mifflin altogether. [[ItWasHisSled Though you probably know this already.]]

[[WMG: David Brent will replace Michael]]
They're still looking for a replacement and Ricky Gervais is slated to appear with a "larger role" in the season finale.
* Almost, but not quite. Brent was indeed one of the candidates for Michael's job. However, he didn't get it.

[[WMG: The cameraman recording everything is the Scranton Strangler.]]

[[WMG: Catherine Tate's character who was interviewed for the management position at the end of season 8 is [[Series/DoctorWho Donna Noble]].]]
She really does seem to act how Donna would have prior to meeting the Doctor, or more likely after [[spoiler: having her memory of him wiped]], while trying to act like she's fit for a management position for which she is clearly unqualified. The timeline works out for her to have moved to America in search of an easier-to-get better job after her time as companion was over, possibly at Wilfred's suggestion.

[[WMG:Jim and Pam will have another baby in season eight.]]
Jenna Fischer is pregnant in real life, so it'd make sense to write it in. There wouldn't have to be as much focus this time around, like with Cecelia. No camera crews in the hospital or anything like that.
Confirmed by Jenna herself in this article: http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/07/the_offices_jenna_fischer_conf.html
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Office_(U.S._season_8) Confirmed.]]

[[WMG: Angela's baby is Dwight's.]]
* There's no way that Dwight/Angela's storyline is over, despite her marriage to the Senator. Calling it now!
** Confirmed in "Jury Duty".
*** "Confirmed" means it's a definite fact backed up by evidence. It hasn't been confirmed, although it probably is his baby.

[[WMG: Creed Bratton isn't actually Creed Bratton. He's a psycho who murdered him and stole his identity.]]
* "No one steals from Creed Bratton and gets away with it. The last man who did disappeared. His name? Creed Bratton."

[[WMG: Angela may face the threat of being fired]]
With the fact that [[spoiler: her husband is gay]], plus her behavior about [[spoiler: Oscar coming out of the closet in season 3]] came off as very very prejudiced. Also [[Tropers/SpiderFan14 I personally]] [[TheScrappy would like her ass canned.]]
* If she was going to be fired over the Oscar situation it probably would have happened back then. I don't see her getting fired any time soon. She's pregnant. It's considered pretty lousy etiquette to fire a pregnant woman without an extremely good reason, and I don't think "gay husband" has ever been grounds for dismissal.
** Also, she's head of the Accounting department, so despite her personal views, she obviously does good work. She and Oscar get along well enough, so there really isn't any reason why she would be fired.

[[WMG: Dwight treats Jim as he would treat a brother]]
* Dwight actually sees Jim as a good friend, possibly his best friend, and treats him just as he would treat a brother. It's just the Schrute's have aggressive and antagonistic relationships with family.

[[WMG: Angela still has feelings for Andy]]
* The cat she keeps at the office? It's the one Andy gave her.

[[WMG: Oscar's sexual harassment settlement included stock options]]
* For what other conceivable reason would Oscar own Dunder Mifflin stock?



* Everybody in this universe knows that they're being monitored, and everybody knows it's not for the purpose of obtaining dirt or criminal evidence against people so much as evaluating the results of The Party's social engineering programs. Everyone, that is, except Michael Scott, who believes the SecretPolice when they tell him it's a reality show. ''ParksAndRecreation'' also takes place in this universe.

[[WMG: Oscar clammed up on purpose at the shareholders meeting]]
* His new ideas wouldn't have changed the character of the people who mismanaged it, and he'd gotten sick of his good ideas constantly being ignored. Add to that the fact that the company swept his sexual harassment claim under the rug, and the fact that he could probably find other opportunities if need be, then perhaps he just wanted to watch Dunder Mifflin go down in flames.

[[WMG: Shortly before the film crew arrived, their coworker Tom committed suicide.]]
* In Performance Review, Michael read old suggestions from the suggestion box, including "We need better outreach for employees fighting depression" by someone named Tom. Phyllis reminds Michael that Tom shot himself.

[[WMG: The GrandFinale will feature Erin's wedding]]
* Michael will be BackForTheFinale to walk her down the aisle.

[[WMG: Angela knows]]
* Angela knows The Senator (state senator) is gay and is willing to be his beard because of the prestige it gives her and because the fake marriage suits her perfectly. She hasn't even been intimate with him. Evidently this means the senator knows the baby isn't his, but as long as people believes it is, he doesn't cares. He may already suspect Dwight is the father, and just pretends to be aloof about the situation.
