On Episode 2 of Season 2 I played "TED" the narrator of the sexual harassment video Michael and the team are forced to watch by HR. The episode is the number one fan favorite (or so I've been told) because it features the birth of Michael Scott's catch phrase "That's what she said." The episode has aired dozens of times since we filmed 7 years ago. The residual checks come in 4 to 6 times a year. And although not huge, they are nice little surprises that buy me groceries or sneakers or medicine for my kids. They are a gift that keeps giving. As Dire Straits said, "Money For Nothing." Or in this case more money for a job I would have done for free.
I remember my day on the set. How friendly Jenna and John were. How Steve asked me to join him and his folks doing yoga. How the writers loved what I did so much they wrote additional scenes that never aired but may show up as bonus features now that the show has ended. I remember the rush of excitement watching it air on NBC for the first time. And the many calls/emails I received from people telling me how proud they were to see me on the show. It was one of the top ten moments of my life. So with the show going off the air I wanted to say thanks to the show's creators, writers, stars and director Ken Kwapis for letting me be a small part of your historical ground breaking sitcom. You will be missed. And that's The Bitter Truth.
