Michael Scott may be gone, but the Dunder Mifflin employees are quickly learning that their oblivious boss was not the only source of madness. This Thursday, The Office episode “Lotto” airs, tackling a sitcom staple of teasing its characters with the possibility of winning the lottery. It seems that everyone in The Office is involved in the pipe dream, and each have different dreams for what they’d do with their winnings.
Of course, Jim and Pam dole out quite sappy stories about what their lives would be like (Pam even revisits her long-dead aspirations of being an artist), provoking Kelly and Meredith to finally say what everyone is thinking.
Andy, adapting with, at best, minor success to his new position as boss, tries, and fails, to rally everyone to stop daydreaming and start working. He also tries, and fails, to do a Mr. T impression…with whom he appears to be only marginally familiar.
The Office episode ‘Lotto’ airs this Thursday, Oct. 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
