“Threat Level Midnight” is the 17th episode in the seventh season of The Office. It’s based on Michael Scott’s movie, Threat Level Midnight, that he’s been working on for years. According to Michael, it took “Three years of writing, one year of shooting, four years of reshooting, and two years of editing” to have the completed version of Threat Level Midnight.
The movie is based around a private agent named Micahel Scarn (played by Michael Scott) as he gets out of retirement for his chance of killing the man who killed his wife: Golden Face. Everyone from Dunder Mifflin makes an appearance in the film but there are a few things left out from the original that didn’t make it into the show. Keep scrolling to see what you missed!
10 Michael Scarn & Jasmine Windsong Have More Dialogue
In the seventh season, the relationship between Michael and Jan is long gone. In fact, he’s in love and dating Holly by the time he shows his movie to the office but Jan still makes an appearance in it since it was filmed years ago.
She plays a singer at the Funky Cat named Jasmine Windsong. In the episode, she tells Michael Scarn where the hostages are through song. In the extended version, the two have much more dialogue. Scarn knew Jasmine had information on where the hostages were so he tried to get her to fall in love with him. He noted loving Billy Joel, babies, and fish sandwiches, which apparently sealed the deal because she told Michael where the hostages were after.
9 The Hostages Choose A Leader
The hostages Michael Scarn is trying to save throughout the episode included, Kevin, Toby, Pam, Roy, and Kelly. When Golden Face leaves the hostages to go “do drugs,” they bicker about choosing a leader to get them out of the situation.
Pam’s character says she should be the leader because she’s a “negotiator, a general, and a cop.” Or as she says, “In other words, I’m a mom.” Kevin would rather take matters into his own hands though; he got up and tried running down the gate but Golden Face reappeared and shut them down.
8 Roy Has A Speaking Scene
In the episode “Threat Level Midnight,” Roy is out of the picture and Jim is married to Pam. Roy’s entire presence in the episode is blurred but that’s not the case in the extended version.
When Golden Face walks away, Roy says “We need to choose a leader who’s tough enough to take on Golden Face!” This is when Pam’s character says she’s tough enough for the job before Kevin goes running into the fence.
7 Pam Tries Convincing Golden Face to Let Them Go
With the hostages still stuck at the ice hockey rink, without any indication that they’re being saved, the group convinces Pam’s character to talk to Golden Face. In an attempt at flirting, she asks why he’s doing this and how his face became so gold.
When Golden Face is done talking, she leans in and kisses him on the cheek! Now that Jim and Pam are married in the series, it was fun looking back at a time where they were still friends who secretly loved each other.
6 All The Women Try To Lure Michael Scarn
When Michael Scarn comes up short on finding the hostages, he heads to a local tavern where he talks to Billy the bartender (played by Andy). Scarn admits he has no self-confidence and is feeling pretty low. Billy suggests hanging out with the bachelorette party that’s right behind him.
The group of women consisted of Meredith, Phyllis, Karen, and Angela. In the episode, only Karen speaks. But in this version, all the girls have a hilarious line. Phyllis calls Scarn “hot stuff” but Angela’s line is the best by far because it’s so out of character for her: “Come and ride the choo-choo. The sex choo-choo.”
5 We Find Out Why Golden Face’s Face Is Gold
While Pam’s character is trying to flirt her way out of being a hostage, Golden Face explains how his face became gold in the first place. He told her he worked in a gold factory with a boss who didn’t give lunch breaks.
To fulfill his hunger, he ate the gold and realized the saying “you are what you eat” is truer than he realized.
4 Packer Chimes In On “The Scarn”
While Michael Scarn is in the bar talking to Billy, Billy suggests doing “the Scarn” to get his confidence back. Out of nowhere, Packer pops up (which is not shown in the episode) and said “the Scarn” sounded “gay.” Michael Scott may have agreed with his so-called best buddy, but Micahel Scarn disagreed. He said doing “the Scarn” was actually incredibly cool before getting up and dancing.
After the dance scene, Scarn tells the bar he got his confidence back and they all rally around him.
3 And We Find Out Why Golden Face Goes After All-Star Games
While Pam’s character is having a heart-to-heart with Golden Face, he explained why his face was gold and his true mission. “Well, I just thought if I could blow up all the All-Star games, the trophies would explode all over the place.
Everyone would be gold just like me.” With sad music playing in the background, it’s obvious Golden Face is in pain and just wanted to be normal and fit in with everyone else.
2 Pam & Roy Kiss After Being Saved By Samuel
In the movie, Dwight plays Michael Scarn’s robotic butler named Samuel. He’s not like Dwight in any sense of the imagination and ends up saving the hostages by the end of the movie.
As soon as Samuel comes crashing through the enclosed area, Roy and Pam lean in for a big kiss. With Jim and Pam being married in the seventh season, that scene was hilariously missing from the episode.
1 Michael Tells Samuel His Life Should Be A Movie
In a funny “breaking the fourth wall” kind of way, Michael Scarn is seen at the end of the movie, making breakfast for himself and Samuel.
Before placing their breakfasts on the table—which was in the episode—Scarn tells Samuel his life should be made into a movie while staring into the camera. Shortly after, the president calls Scarn for another mission, which he accepts (forgetting that the president was the bad guy).
