EP. 74 — Goodbye Toby, Part 1

Today we’re breaking down Goodbye Toby. To kick off this two part episode, Paul Lieberstein sent in audio clips to talk about what it was like to write himself off the show and introduce Holly Flax, played by Amy Ryan. When Toby has his last day at Dunder Mifflin, Michael insists on throwing him a huge going away party. Angela Martin scoffs at the idea, so Phyllis steps in. While breaking down Pratt Institute, Jenna ends up quoting her own book, The Actor’s Life: A Survival Guide. Creed chimes in about his famous “quabity assuance” scene and Angela learns the difference between “hot to trot” and “fired up”. This episode is cruisin’ for a bruisin’, so listen up!
