Michael Scott's offensive impression of Chris Rock's N-word routine results in the Dunder Mifflin employees getting a racial tolerance seminar by Mr. Brown. Michael is sick of it and makes up his own.

Airdate: March 29, 2005


Tropes:

  • Armor-Piercing Slap: Michael gets one from Kelly Kapoor as he antagonizes her by saying, "Try my googie-googie!"
  • Asian Store-Owner: Michael pretends he is an Indian store owner to irritate Kelly Kapoor.
  • Advertisement:
  • Censored for Comedy: The Chris Rock skit was going to be uncensored but the producers insisted on censoring it.
  • Early Installment Weirdness: Kelly's first appearance has her dressed a lot more conservatively and not exhibiting her bubbly person. Word of God is that she was recently hired and trying to make a good impression.
  • Fun with Acronyms: The acronym for racial tolerance is HERO or Honesty Empathy Respect and Open-mindedness. In a deleted scene, Michael wanted to do one called INCEST.
  • N-Word Privileges: Michael Scott wanted to re-enact the skit but Kevin Malone says it in a mild manner.
  • Second Episode Introduction: Toby Flenderson and Kelly Kapoor, played by writers Paul Lieberstein and Mindy Kaling, appear here for the first time, and become recurring characters in following episodes.
