N/A - Stress Relief

Last week i gave a fire safety talk.
And nobody paid any attention.
It's my own fault for using powerpoint.
Powerpoint is boring.
People learn in lots of different ways, But experience is the best teacher.
Today, smoking is gonna save lives.
Does anyone smell anything smoky? Did you bring your jerky in again? Oh, my god! Uh, oh, my god.
Fire! Oh, fire! Oh, my goodness.
What's the procedure? - what do we do, people? - the phones are dead.
Oh, how did that happen? It's out in the hall.
No, we don't know that.
The smoke Could be coming through an air duct.
Oh, my god! Okay, it's happening.
Everybody stay calm.
- what's the procedure, - everyone?What's the procedure? Stay *** calm! Wait, wait, wait! Everybody, now *** calm down! No! No, michael, no! Touch the handle.

Everyone for himself! Okay.
Let's go! - out of my way! - let's go! Get out of my way.
Calm, please.
Get out of the way! Have you ever seen a burn victim? - move it! - okay! Procedure, procedure.
Exit options.
where do we go, folks? Wha--use a what to cover theouth? A what? A rag.
A damp rag, perhaps.
??Remember those procedures.
What are the options? Okay, that's a wrong way.
We've already tried that.
Remember your exit points.
- exit points, people.

- what's next? - oscar! Stay alive, i'm getting help! Pull me up! You're too heavy! I only weigh 82 pounds.
Save bandit! How about 911? Anyone? 911.
What do we do? Use the surge of fear and adrenaline To sharpen your decision-making.
Okay, i am not dying here.
Come on.
What is that? What is that? The fire's shooting at us! What in the name of god is going on?! Yes! Yes, battering ram.
Go, go, go, go, go! Help! I'm about to die! Attention, everyone! Employees of dunder mifflin.
This has been a test of Our emergency preparedness.
There was no fire.
It Was only a simulation.
What?! Fire not real.
This was Merely a training exercise.
So what have we learned? Oh, come on.
- it's not real, stanley.
- ??? - don't have a heart attack.
- no, no, no.
You will not die.
Stanley! Stanley! You will not die.
Stanley.
Stanley.
Barack is president! You are black, stanley! I'm gonna give him mouth-to-mouth.
No, no, no.
Don't give Him mouth-to-mouth for this.
- no,?? Open your mouth.
- michael.
michael, michael.
Come on, don't swallow it.
- ?? - michael, michael.
??? Saving him! The office s05 ep13 How could you possibly Think this is a good idea? A lot of ideas were not Appreciated in their time.
- electricity.
- shampoo.
You could have burned Down the whole building.
I just want to say for the Record, i did not kill anyone.
Stanley was attacked by his own heart.
And he should be released from the hospital And back in the office in a couple days.
Did you shout, "fire!", causing a panic? Yes, i shouted, "fire!" I shouted many things.
I also shouted instructions on How to get out of the building, So you can imagine my Frustration as safety officer When nobody would heed of what--heeded-- - ???When no one "hedded"-- - ?? Take "hedded" of.
N-no one would take "hedded" of my instructions.
- heed.
Heed.
Take heed of.
- so you-- - and, well, i don't see my coworkers-- - take heed of.
Hee--heeding this right now.
?? Okay.
This city Dwight.
We are not mad, we are just disappointed.
No, we are mad.
Yes.
We are.
we are livid.
But we are going to let this one slide.
- no, we're not.
- i am not a mind-reader, david.
Look, this is a very serious offense.
We have cause to fire you.
Can you shove down? Instead Shove down, please.
Instead, what i think we should do Is strip you of your title as safety officer.
- no.
- and we should take A part of his pay and donate it To the charity of your choice.
Something that dwight doesn't like.
Peta.
Michael, you have to take Responsibility here.
One of your employees had a heart attack.
He could have died because of the Way you're allowing your office to run.
Do you want that on your conscience? Do you? - michael.
- you talking to me? Yeah.
What? Well I guess we papered over that pretty nicely.
It always amuses me when corporate Thinks they can make some big change With a 20-minute meeting In some fancy high-rise.
What's the matter?You hungry? No, dwight, i am worried.
A man's life is in my hands.
Don't you worry about that.
I got it covered.
Okay? I am planning a bomb scare.
That Should really get the blood pumping.
That's not gonna happen.
I'm tang over as safety man.
What? You? - yes.
- come on.
- i'm a smart guy.
I'll figure it out.
- that's preposterous.
- no, i will.
- ??? Nobody should have to go to work thinking, "oh, this is the place That i might die today.
" That's what a hospital is for.
An office is for not dying.
An office is a place to Live life to the fullest, to the max, to An office is a place where dreams come true.
Don't excite him.
Don't make him excitable.
Welcome back, stanley.
Thank you, michael.
It's true.
Around this office, in the past, i Have been a little abrupt with people.
Not maybe.
Yes or no.
No way.
Uh-uh.
Are you from another planet? Boy, have you lost your mind? 'Cause i'll help you find it.
Did i stutter? I'm done.
Good-bye.
But the doctor said if i can't find a new Way to relate more positively to my surroundings, I'm going to die.
Andy.
A throne for your highness.
I'm not sitting in a wheelchair.
No, no, no.
No debate.
You are going to sit in that wheelchair Until you are back on your feet.
??? A, b, c--okay? And that stands for airway, Breathing, and circulation.
Okay, you know what? That Could be a lile confusing Because in sales, a, b, c Means "always be closing.
" This is a farce.
i should Be teaching this course.
Shut it.
Shut it.
We found ourselves on the Less-prepared side of things When stanley had his When his heart went berserk.
And i knew exactly what to do, But in a much moreeal sense, I had no idea what to do.
So i thought we should Have a cpr training class.
And course you can't get the practice dummy Unless the instructor comes along with it.
Red cross, you know, racket.
I can't keep doing this forever.
It's been 20 seconds.
Call it.
Would you like to try next? Absolutely i would not.
You know who i really think should go? Stanley.
Oh, i don't know.
That's not a good idea, Michael.
He needs to rest.
No rest for the sick.
We are not always going to be there To coddle your heart back When it disappears to be working.
What are you gonna do if you're by Yourself and your heart stops? I would die.
And you're okay with that? I'm okay with the logic of it.
Uh-uh.
No, no, no.
Come on.
Get up.
Let's do this.
Yes, i had a heart attack.
I would quit, but i'm too Old to find another job.
And i don't have enough saved to retire.
I feel like i'm working at my own casket.
Come on, stanley.
You're losing You.
You're losing you.
Do it! - michael.
- this is you we're talking about.
- michael.
- okay, okay.
I'll show them.
Here we go.
Stanley.
All right.
So assessing the situation, Are they breathing? No, rose.
They are not breathing.
And they have no arms or legs.
No, that's not part of it.
Where are they? You know what? If we come across Somebody with no arms or legs, Do we bother resuscitating them? I mean, what kind of quality Of life do we have there? I would want to live with no legs.
How about no arms? No arms or legs is basically how You exist right now, kevin.
You don't do anything.
All right, well, let's get back To it.
'cause you're losing him.
Okay, too fast.
Everyone we need to pump at a Pace of 100 beats per minute.
Okay, that's, uh, hard to keep track.
How many is that per hour? How's that gonna help you? I will divide and then count to it.
Right.
Okay.
Well, a good trick is to pump to The tune of staying alive by the bee gees.
Do you know that song? Yes, yes, i do.
I love that song.
* first i was afraid i was petrified * No, it's-- * ah, ah, ah, ah * - * stayin' alive, stayin' alive * - okay, yes, i got it.

- okay.
okay.
- * da da da da da da da * * stayin' alive, stayinalive * Yeah, okay, you didn't Maintain 100 beats per minute, And the ambulance didn't Arrive because nobody called 911.
So you lost him.
Okay.
He's dead.
Anyone know what we do next? Anybody? Rose? I have no idea.
- anyone else? - we bury him.
Wrong.
Check for an organ donor card.
If he has one, we only Have minutes to harvest.
He has no wallet.
I checked.
He is an organ donor.
- he is? - yeah.
Give me some ice and a styrofoam bucket.
Here we go.

Can you tell me why you had to Cut the face off the dummy? I didn't think it was very Realistic in the movie, And it turns out, it's pretty realistic.
We had to pay for it.
Cost us $3,500.
- $5,300 for a dummy? - wow.
Okay, look.
David, this is why we have training.
We start with the dummy, And we learn from our mistakes.

But i'm gonna need to buy my dad a robe.
He's not saying what he needs to say.
Who? Jack black? Yeah.

They're catching things that Are totally going over my head.

I know, but if i get it deeper-- What is-- He was pretty talkative at breakfast.
Wha--brea-- Breakfast? You mean when they were eating soup? I don't think that was breakfast.
Unless soup--does soup symbolize breakfast? So he doesn't share with his daughter, But he shares with his daughter's fiance? Okay, you guys-- they're making out.

- hey.
Did my dad say anything about my mom? Mmm, nope.
We mostly Just talked about cereal.

- mmm.
- you're good to talk to.
I'm okay.
I'm not great.
And, um Everybody sit on the floor, Indian-style, like me.
Ommy god, If you're wearing a dress, Please keep your knees together.
Nobody wants to see that.
Om.
My goal is to make this office as peaceful A place for stanley hudson as i can.
I think sounds have a lot to do with that.
Here are some downloaded peaceful sounds.
That one makes me think Of death.
That's kind of nice.
It is a beautiful, sunny day As we walk through the meadow.
It is very spiritual and relaxing, And there are flowers, and It is sunny and beautiful.
Now, up ahead, a castle in the distance.
Don't open your eyes.
What? Ohh.
And you walk up toward the castle, And inside the castle are four men.
And each of them-- none Of them have shoes.
And they give you a funny cigarette, And you feel even more relaxed.
And then you want ice cream.
You want a big bowl of ice cream.
So what kind of ice cream do you want? Yell it out.
Chunky monkey.
- too expensive.
- chocolate.
Racism is dead,stanley.
You can have any kind Of ice cream you want.
What do you want? What is that? People.
Please,i told you to get Rid of the cell phones.
It's my biofeedback machine.
Oh,okay.
What is that? Like a video game? It alerts me when my Stress level goes up So i can try to calm down.
You have stress? Yes.
During our relaxation exercise? Let me get you some water.
No,no,i'll help you.
I'll help you up.
- here we go.
Here we go.
- no,michael.
- let me get you up.
- would you step back?Please.
- okay.
All right.
- please.
- a little further.
- okay.
I think that thing is on the fritz.
Oscar.
Would you reach over And touch his thing? That's what he said.
Right,guys? 'Cause of gay.
Let's give this a shot.
Hello-- Michael,i think you're what's Stressing everybody out.
So it wasn't dwight after all.
Looks like i am the killer.
You never expect that you're the killer.
It's a great twist.
Great twist.
Dunder mifflin,this is pam.
Oh.
Hey,mom.
No.
What did dad say? What did you say to mdad? What? After you talked,he called my mom And said he was gonna Look for an apartment.
Oh,my god.
Pam,i don't kno I--nothing.
Truly,nothing.
I mean,i--i just was honest With him and i-- I'm so sorry,i--i don't know.
I'll call him again.
So It was her parents or my parents.
What could jim have said To make my dad want to leave my mom? And at what point in our marriage Is he gonna say it to me? I don't get it.
Do i stress you out? Nothing stresses me out.
Except having to seek the Approval of mynferiors.
Speaking of which-- Remember when people used to say "boss" When they were describing Something that was really cool? Like "those shoulder pads Are really boss,man.
" "look at that perm.
That perm is so boss.
" It's what made me want To become a boss.
And i looked so good in A perm and shoulder pads.
But now,boss is just slang Fo"jerk in charge.
" Okay,everybody.
I figured it out.
The reason that you are all So stressed around me Is that you are too Intimidated to tell me What you really think.
You are keeping these feelings inside, And that is causing stress.
So what is a solution? Solution is honesty, Laughter,and comedy.
In short-- A vacation.
It--what? No.
no, I am talking about a roast! Of michael scott.
Oh,come on! Who here has the comedy Central roast channel? You've seen it,right? Everybody gets together, And you start hurling Insults at the one guy, And everybody's laughing, And everybody is hugging each other.
Michael,are you serious? You really want us to roast you? Mmm,si senor.
- that's offensive.
- it's not! It's not offensive during a roast.
Anything goes.
And i want you guys to really Get cracking on this.
I want you to take me down.
Don't hold back.
I want you to really make fun Of anything about me.
It could be my race, Could be the fact that i'mo fit, Or i'm a womanizer.
Fair game.
Whatever.
I don't want to write Your stuff for you.
But i just want it to be good.
Oh,my god.
Oh,man.
Oh,my god.
I consider myself a good person.

Great job,some great laughs.
Really Really went after my intelligence,there.
Dozens of online i.
q.
Tests might prove you wrong, But And my thing isn't tiny.
It's average,so.
Get your facts straight.
So when i heard that There was going to be A roast in my honor,i thought-- Sorry.
I have a frog in my throat.
I decided to jot down Some quick thoughts about you people.
First up,uh,phyllis and kevin.
Dunder mifflin,this is pam.
Uh,i'm sorry.
Michael's not here right now.
Can i take a message? Great.
I will.
Thanks.
It's very unusual for michael Not to show up to work.
My guess-- he's either deeply depressed Or an icicle has snapped off His roof and impaled his brain.
He has this terrible habit Of standing directly underneath them And staring up at them.
And i always say,"michael, Ta two steps back And stare at the icicle from the side.
" And he's like,"no,i Like the way they look From standing directly Underneath them.
" It was only a matter of time.
Michael is so dumb That he tries to put his m&ms In alphabetical order.
All right,kevin.
Enough with the michael jokes.
I think he got it Bad enough yesterday.
I'm almost done.
That reeks,and i'm trying to eat.
Attention,everyone.
I've just Got a text from michael.
He says,"personnel day.
" Are we hiring? Yep.
You're being replaced.
I think he meant "personal day.
" I don't know.
That's quite a leap,pam.
I hope he's okay.
I feel bad.
Give it up.
He's dead.
Well,he just sent a text.
What's a text? You know,sometimes, To get perspective, I like to think about A spaceman on a star Incredibly far away.
And our problems Don't matter to him Because we're just A distant point of light.
But he feels sorry for me.
Because he has an incredibly Powerful microscope And he can see my face.
I'm okay.
No,i'm not.
Uh,phyllis,there's a package for you.
Sign here.
Okay.
Got it.
Sam.
Sam,sam.
It's not that you dumped My granddaughter, And it's not that You want children.
It--it's that you lied to me.
Can't you see that? Can't you see? Oh! I' never trust you.
Lily,no.
Oh! Lily! Lily,please! Lily,stop! I don't care how much Time we have left.
I don't care what my friends say.
And i don't care what your mom thinks.
Frankly,i'm pretty sure She's not making any sense.
Please.
Move back to my apartment.
Lily.
I'm not giving up.
I'm not giving up.
Lily.
Lily! Push the reverse button! Reverse the button! Sam.
Lily! Sam.
Hey,dad.
No,i know.
Mom told me.
Okay.
Yeah,i'll see you then.
So what did he say? Was it my fault? Yeah.
He said that you told him How much you love me.
About how you feel When i walk in a room, And about how you've never Doubted for a second That i'm the woman you want to Spend the rest of your life with.
And i guess he's never Felt that with my mom, Even at their best.
You okay? Yeah.
When you're a kid,you assume Your parents are soul mates.
My kids are gonna Be right about that.
I guess it also means That sometimes love Affairs look different To the people inside them.
I'm not insightful enough To be a movie critic.
Maybe i could be a food critic.
These muffins taste bad.
Or an art critic.
That painting is bad.
Michael.
It's really good to see you.
Why are you wearing a turtleneck? Are you all right? Michael,i feel i was A little harsh yesterday.
- yeah.
- yeah,we're really sorry.
I,um,i spent The afternoon in the park Trying to feed the pigeons.
I guess they all flew West for the winter.
And i-- i just had some thoughts That i wanted to Share with you people.
- what? - well,i wrote 'em down So i wouldn't forget.
