Recap / The Office USS 2 E 5 Halloween

Go To

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.

How well does it match the trope?
