Way-mond about to get Way-layed.
In "Alice Quits”, the guys fun and gunned their way to a new boss; even if it was just a temporary reign. What went into making the episode? What was Waymond’s first scripted line? Where was Alice? Original ending??!!?
Read on for a 5-rated episodic performance review…
- Waymond speaks! Sort of. Waymond’s first scripted-line, "Get Down!", was never heard because of the slo-mo style of the scene. And the food in his mouth. Hey, he may not have said more than a gargled mishmash of breakfast mush. We’ll never know…
- Bruce Benson, TelAmeriCorp CEO (played by Chris Parnell) heads the telemarketing firm; and Cool Eric is the on-site HR Head. Where does Daniel Stern’s Travis Rockne fit into the mix? He was envisioned as Regional Manager-type, and his days in Rancho Cucamonga could be far from over.
- Early story discussions had Adam, Blake and Ders going to Alice’s home to plead with her to come back to the office; others had them going to her new job, which at one point would have been in a popular restaurant chain’s kitchen.
- ORIGINAL ENDING — Jillian drags a bunch of screen grabs from her desktop and puts them in a folder marked "Guys’ Dicks".
All in all, we’re glad Alice didn’t really quit. Because it’s just a TV show and for a character to quit would mean they became sentient and break the fourth wall, and if Alice could become real, so could Aliens. And Predators. And then no one’s safe.
