Question: Could I have some Office prattle?

Answer: Santa just delivered next week's holiday-themed episode, and I had Intern Scott (whose last day is today!) screen it for scoop. Here's his report: "Im sorry to say that Pam spends more time with Karen in the episode than she does with Jim. (Jim even rejects Pam's Christmas present!) The two women actually decide to work together when icy Angela tries to take over the office Christmas party with her rigid Nutcracker theme. And I hate to be a walking NBC promo, but dont miss the last two minutes; what little time Pam and Jim do spend together is well worth the wait." Way to work the tease, Intern Scott! I have taught you well.
