Tropes

  • *Cough* Snark *Cough*: *cough*Narc!*cough
  • Insult Backfire: When Michael calls Dwight a narc.
    Dwight: If you are attempting to compliment me, then you are doing a very good job.
  • Advertisement:
  • The Reveal: A deleted scene shows who dropped the joint in the parking lot: a couple of warehouse employees.
  • Reverse Psychology: Jim manages to pull a combination of this and Mind Screw when Dwight interviews him as part of the investigation:
    Jim: I'm just saying that you can't be sure that it wasn't you.
    Dwight: That's ridiculous, of course it wasn't me.
    Jim: Marijuana is a memory loss drug, so maybe you just don't remember.
    Dwight: I would remember.
    Jim: Well, how could you, if it just erased your memory?
    Dwight: That's not how it works.
    Jim: (suspicious) Now how do you know how it works?
    Dwight: ...knock it off, okay, I'm interviewing you!
    Jim: No, you said that I'd be conducting the interview when I walked in here, now exactly how much pot did you smoke?!
