Daniels stated, "We're trying to shut down The Office. We have the star of our show and the entire writing staff behind us."
When Daniels arrived at the line around 4:15, none of his actors had crossed the line. Actors B.J. Novak, Mindy Kaling and Paul Lieberstein also serve as writers on the show. Daniels went on to say, "We have non-writing producers on the show who are perfectly capable of doing any non-writing producing duties. They want me do to writing producing and just pretend it's producing. Every decision you make has a writing aspect to it. If they really just thought it was producing, they could just as easily get somebody else to do these tasks."
Apparently, there is only one unproduced The Office script ready to go. It is supposed to be a good one. Daniels said, "Last week we had our best table reading of the entire run of the show, and that's what we were going to shoot this week."
