One of the funniest clips comes from Season 5’s 10th episode, “The Surplus,” which sees Oscar inform Steve Carrell’s Michael Scott that Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch has an extra $4,300 to spend from that year’s budget. As a result, Scott has to decide whether to buy a new copier, new chairs, or pocket a percentage of the money as a bonus for himself.
The bonus clip, which takes place after Michael decided to pocket the money for himself, sees Carrell share a story about a 12-year-old boy who wanted a Pippy Longstocking doll for Christmas before learning to be grateful for what he already had.
“Like any other 12-year-old boy, he wanted a Pippi Longstocking doll for Christmas,” Michael begins. “But his evil stepfather Jeff said, ‘No, you may not have what you want. You must have a football.’ And the boy cried, and he cried and he cried and he held his breath as long as he could and he wouldn’t eat his dinner.”
Michael continues, “But you know something? It turns out that Jeff was right because I already had a G.I. Joe and a Stretch Armstrong and a Malibu Barbie and a Major Matt Mason, which technically is enough for a tea party. So my point is this, I didn’t need what I thought I needed. What I needed was to learn how to appreciate what I had.”
