We should really have the offices air quality tested and we have radon coming from below we have asbestos in the ceilings
These are silent killers.
You are the silent killer, go back to the Annex
I decided to give baby Halpert a newspaper from the day she was born
This frame set me back 55 bones
But she decided to take her sweet time so now I have to switch it with today's paper
With this move he can't get you.
Well. I think that you could counter that move, the Scranton strangler is a professional strangler
Oh please I wish he'd come after me I would be like-
[off camera] Dwight Shrute?
Too late. if I was the real Scranton strangler, you'd be so strangled by now
If you're out there strangler you will get caught. By me!
Sounds like someone's really trying to convince us that he's not the Scranton strangler
To my chickens, I'm the Scranton Strangler
next up, Secretary Schrute will read the minutes from Sunday's meeting
Minutes from previous meeting of knights of the night
No, Jim Hey! This meeting is for Knights of the night only.
Knights are the night our volunteer crime patrollers
We're often compared to the guardian angels, but we could not be more different from them
Seriously, we are nothing like the Guardian Angels
I mean broad strokes purposes? sure think guardian angels.
one of our many recent good deeds. We set out to capture the Scranton strangler
not by us
Want to ask you a question . Um, it's a little personal. Let's to it. Let's get personal
I want to talk to you about your divorce
Sorry I- no no what I meant was- Actually what I meant was-

So you guys obviously went through some tough times
Okay I was wondering if you ever did any couples counseling?
Oh sure lots of times yeah
Wait you and Pam are in couples counseling. Are you?

silly... ah im gonna kill him
They caught the scranton strangler! they trapped him in his house.
He's believed to be inside
Police have now surrounded the apartment complex
Police have surrounded
and we now see what appears to be a SWAT van pulling up
Its SWATTs, SWATTs arriving.
It is unknown if he is armed with any-
They should do that thing where they play some really good music to get him to come out
Shouldn't televise any of this, just encourages copycats
just say copies.
Why do you have to drag cats into this okay?
Well, this is interesting. We should get back to work these standoffs can last a long time. What if it's another Waco
It's pronounced whacko
some events are so newsworthy, so historic that you have to stop everything to watch,
Michael Jackson's funeral
Things that if you didn't see them live, you wouldn't really care that you didn't see them at all
Coming to you from the corner of Columbia Street in Washington Ave
Ugh. Whenis he gonna come out?
Bet he's wishing he had a hybrid, right?60 miles to the gallon in the city
No, I bet he's wishing he was strangling something. Okay. That's our street. That's our street. He's going down our street
There it is! there it- It's gone he went right by missed it you missed it
Grandpa where were you the day the Scranton strangler was caught? well I was there kiddo
I Was there
And I'll tell you what?
You go sell these and buy yourself a nice spaceship
how has being a minority
Well, There's a lot of pressure from my parents to settle down and marry an Indian guy
Oh good, and you resent this because-
Indian guys always wear their cell phones outside their pants
It's so dorky
no no no that's not dorky, but it's easily accessible boom like this
9-1-1 hello Scranton strangler is in the house inside the house
Just put it in your pocket
Hi guys hi
I just wanted to let you know that I'll be taking a leave of absence starting next week
because you've been on the lam
Because the boring police have been after you and they finally caught up with you
no the opposite
I was actually selected to be a juror on a very high-profile case
yes the case of the horrible
Redheaded sad-sack and the verdict: It was Toby and the sentence death. death to Toby
Death toToby. Oh, that's hurtful. Talk. We've talked about that
You know what I dont interrupt your announce so-
you leave these huge pauses in your sentences. what expect me to do?
What's the case Toby?
well I really can't talk about, but it's a very high-profile case
is it criminal?
have we heard of it?
I don't know
is it the middle school teacher who tried to turn her a foreign exchange student into a sex slave?
Was that the post office guy who rubbed his penis all over the mail
guys. It's a really big deal.
He's rubbing his neck
He's rubbing his neck
Scranton strangler Oh
I can neither Confirm or deny this let's just say I'll be up to my neck in jury duty oh
That was the worst joke
Every day millions of Americans suffer from extreme repulsiveness someone in our myths is bringing that problem to light
Please come up here and at the extreme repulsiveness award. Oh, that's so mean...
You gotta play along man
Here he comes
All right, you deserved it.
I really disagree with this I
Think it's kind of hateful although
I am a little happy right now to have a platform to talk about the outcome of a case that I was recently a juror
On the Scranton strangler a man's being put to death I was part of the verdict, and I'm not so sure he's guilty
Those figures I gave you they're false
I was mad at Kevin we had a fight and I acted vindictively
So I guess setup?
Yes, he's innocent
I knew it. I knew it from the beginning this was a possibility. What are you talking about? I just did this now
a few years ago
When I was on the jury the Scranton structure
How sorry might have been set up, but I felt pressure to convict.
It's gotta be tough
tough, I put an innocent man on death row
I'm going to the prison
This afternoon I'm gonna talk to his strangler
Probably best to use his ro name rather than strangler
don't use his real name
george howard skub?
It's a devil name
. Anyway. Just wanna say. I'm doing it. I'm going
He's doing it
Hi, im toby flenderson here to see george howard skub. This is the prison
I am NOT going in there with
expectations per se
I will meet george howard skub. I will tell him that I believe he is innocent
I don't understand if he felt motivated to hug me I
Would understand if a friendship began not it had a boggart put it. I think this is a start of my first friendship
Well the good news is no more guilty conscience. least you know he is the strangler
The proof is in the grip did they say when the vocal cords would heal?
Okay two weeks
You offered your neck in search of the truth
The proud neck of justice isn't about the expression anyway. It was it was very brave
It really was quite brave
