I do declare…

I’m going to Savannah for a long weekend and all I can think about is that episode of The Office called “The Murder”. Can’t wait for everybody down there to sound like Paula Deen. And of course… I’ve been walking around saying “I do declare” a lot in preparation, which another fine gentleman, Foghorn Leghorn…

Hot pizza, check it and see

Last Thursday’s episode of The Office (Sex Ed) hilariously incorporated all of Michael Scott’s exes over the past 6 seasons into one convenient plot about herpes. However, one of my favorite moments from the episode was from the B story, which was when Andy took it upon himself to hold a sex education seminar for…

Michael Scott is leaving The Office

Oh no! According to E!, Steve Carell confirmed that he’s leaving NBC’s The Office for greener pastures. My guess is that Michael Scott will get transferred to Nashua so he can be near Holly, but I’m just pulling that out of my butt. Can The Office survive without Michael Scott? Maybe not the fake tv…

Well it’s a mess, whatcha gonna do?

David Wallace on The Office is always pure comedy cold. Sure, his comedic stylings are more subtle than say, Michael Scott, but that’s why it makes this clip all the more special. Because David Wallace is now nuts. In a post-Sabre takeover world (where presumably David Wallace got bought out and is now enjoying his…

The Office presents: Subtle Sexuality

Here at songspeak, we love The Office and everything Office-related. Today, The Office just released their latest webisodes on the NBC site. This group of webisodes is entitled Subtle Sexuality, and in it, Kelly and new receptionist Erin start a girl-group and shoot a music video for their new song, Male Prima Donna. The entire…

It’s a nice day for an Office wedding

Last night marked the biggest television wedding since Monica and Chandler or Luke and Laura when Jim and Pam got married on The Office. The episode actually surpassed my expectations, and the entire cast got some really funny moments. The episode was chock-full of great moments; Dwight hooking up with Pam’s best friend, Andy tearing…

Love me, love me…say that you’ll love me

Do you ever have a song that gets stuck in your head and eats away at your brain for days on end? We’ve all been there. (I happen to currently be there with both of the literal lyrics videos posted earlier this week). The Office brilliantly referenced (and utilized) this phenomenon in the season 3…

Wazzzzzzzzzzup!

Last Thursday on My Name is Earl, the storyline involved David Arquette as a stuntman who had suffered a brain injury so that every day he woke up and thought it was the same day, and forgot everything from the day before (just like Drew Barrymore’s character in 50 First Dates). His accident happened 10…

Comedy Night Done Right

Last night was the Comedy Night Done Right on NBC with season premieres of My Name is Earl, The Office, and ER. And amazingly enough, there were great songspeak moments in each of these episodes! There was a scene in My Name is Earl where Earl’s dad (played by Beau Bridges) goes to confront an…

U Can’t Putt This!

We’ve posted here before about the use of songspeak in commercials. However, I don’t know that we’ve ever praised the virtues of the local commercial. The Office even dedicated an episode to the art of the local commercial. This post is a wonderful example of the local commercial combined with songspeak in advertising. Fenway Golf…

That’s what she said

To be fair, this is TVspeak and not really songspeak, but songspeak is large enough to encompass all of pop culture. One of our favorite pop culture catch phrases is “that’s what she said”. It’s pretty low class humor, but it’s awesome. I believe it originated on Wayne’s World, but it has become exceedingly prominent…

Ryan started the fire

On an episode of The Office, a small fire starts in the kitchen, causing the employees of Dunder Mifflin to exit to the parking lot. Dwight goes back in to get Michael’s cell phone (which Michael has in his pocket), and discovers that ‘the temp’, Ryan, caused the fire by not using the toaster oven…
