They’re all gonna have to stay late that night, so everyone has to cancel their plans.
I found that aspect of her really funny because nothing could, in any way, sway her to feel like anything had any humor to it at all. To Jan, Michael was this guy who was kind of an idiot, but also represented this possibility for her white picket fence, which is why the dinner party is so resonant. It’s her moment of “here we are living together, and I’m gonna have a candle business, and we have a Warhol on the wall of me, and [Michael] adores me, and we’re gonna have this perfect life.” It’s her having a delusional fantasy of normalcy. Pre-Production A table read is a chance for actors to get familiar with the script and for the writers to see if the jokes work.I had this ongoing story going for myself that Jan had become more hard and more masculine by climbing the ranks in a man’s world and by almost putting aside her femininity. Melora Hardin (Jan Levinson): Jan’s boob job came from the first year that we went to the [network] upfronts [where advertisers preview upcoming shows], and I turned to Greg and said, “It’s funny, I’m looking around at the females in our cast, and I’m thinking nobody in our cast has a boob job.” Now, I’m not sure that I’m totally right about that, by the way, but that’s what I thought. The writers approached the “Dinner Party” table read with some trepidation since it was so dark.Lee Eisenberg (co-writer): When Melora first came on the show, she hadn’t done a ton of comedy. And then the comedy started drifting more toward her, where she actually got jokes, rather than being the straight person and being the reaction shot. Gene Stupnitsky (co-writer): It started off very slow. Little by little, it just starts building, and I never experienced that before. Lee Eisenberg (co-writer): There’s nothing more satisfying than having Steve Carell barely able to get through his lines. You’re seeing someone experience it right in front of you for the first time, which is great.Greg Daniels (executive producer/co-creator): In the very beginning, the episode was called “Virginia Woolf” in my notes, and the idea was to have Jim and Pam have this super-uncomfortable night seeing all the awkwardness of Michael and Jan’s relationship and watching it melt down in front of them, in a comedy version of the Albee play.Lee Eisenberg (co-writer): We set it up so in the cold open Michael pretends there’s an emergency.
Taking the action away from the Dunder Mifflin office, “The Dinner Party” provides a rare glimpse into the home life of regional manager Michael Scott (Carell) as he hosts an impromptu get-together for three couples: salesman Jim Halpert and receptionist Pam Beesly, salesman Andy Bernard and accountant Angela Martin, and party-crasher Dwight Schrute and his former babysitter/current lover, Melvina.
