It's Halloween and most of the office dresses up. Michael has to find someone to fire. Jim and Pam prank Dwight by applying to various jobs on his behalf.
- Berserk Button: Devon loses it when Michael accidentally fires him.
- Cat Girl: Angela, Pam, and Phyllis all dress up as adorable cats.
- Early Installment Weirdness: In the first two seasons, we see background workers who don't appear later. Played with, since one of them ends up getting fired in this episode.
- For Halloween, I Am Going as Myself: Jim's costumes tend to be lazy. He's three-hole punch Jim with three dots on his shirt (as opposed to plain white Jim). It works.
- Halloween Episode: Everyone's dressed up.
- Wrong Genre Savvy: Phyllis asks if Dwight's Sith costume is a monk.
