Michael Scott Is Extra Ridiculous in Never-Before-Seen Office Clip

In a deleted scene, Michael tells the story of a young boy who wants a Pippi Longstocking doll for Christmas.
  • Peacock has released a never-before-seen clip of The Office as part of its new Season 5 "Superfan" drop, featuring deleted scenes, bloopers, featurettes, and interviews with the cast of the beloved sitcom.

    The newly released scene, first shared by E! News Friday morning, was filmed as part of the Season 5 episode "The Surplus," in which Michael Scott (Steve Carell) discovers extra money left in Dunder Mifflin's budget and has to decide whether to buy a new copier, new chairs, or pocket a percentage of the money as a bonus for himself.

    The never-before-seen clip takes place after Michael decides to keep the money. It's clear Michael is talking about himself as he shares a story about a 12-year-old boy who wanted a Pippy Longstocking doll for Christmas and instead learned to be thankful for what he already had.

    "Like any other 12-year-old boy, he wanted a Pippi Longstocking doll for Christmas," Michael says. "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."

    "But you know something?" he continues. "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."

    "Which in this case, was enough dolls to have a tea party?" asks Jim (John Krasinski), before the scene picks up with footage that originally aired in 2008.

    The Office is currently streaming on Peacock.
