When the Office Ladies Come “Christmas Benihana” In the episode, writer Jen Celotta talked about how shocked she was when she learned from producer Kent Zbornak that the joke she wrote for Carell ended up costing a hefty $60,000:
“I thought, it was a good joke, but none of the jokes I’ve ever written was a $60,000 joke. But I remember not long after that, we cut our music budget. And I can’t help but I think I mean, I’m sitting at the mix and don’t know that because he’s singing that song, that song has to be removed and that joke is $60,000.”
Sorry! It was only a brief moment, but it was clearly all it took for Money’s fortune to amass thanks to the gag, which feels very fitting for a mistake Michael might have made. get. I imagine it’s worth it, as it joins Carell’s meme gallery. Even if you haven’t seen an episode, there’s a 99.9% chance you’ve encountered a meme that features Michael grimacing. When there’s nothing left, there’s just a gif of him shouting “NO!” at Toby. But at least, it won’t cost $60,000.
