Lana: [ walks up ] Hi. It’s my first day, and I was wondering if you could tell me where the supply cabinet is?

Maya: Oh. Oh, welcome. What department are you in?

Lana: I’m in Consulting. I work for.. Pam. [ the group members groan to themselves ] Uh.. is something bad?

Ken: You’ve got Passive-Aggressive Pam.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: [ enters ] Hi-i-i-i! [ group members barely responds ] Ooh.. you look tired. [ fake smile ] Hey, Lana, I thought we were meeting in my office? Oh, well.. I guess I goofed!

Barbershop Quartet: [ singing ]“It’s a friendly little zinger
but it’s always got a stinger.
A verbal middle finger
is a nasty humdinger!
Hey! That compliment was really a slam!
It’s Passive-Aggressive Pa-a-a-a-a-ammm!”

[ Barbershop Quartet quickly stumble out of the scene as it comes back to life ]

Ken: How’s it going, Pam?

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Oh, fine. You know, I want to work in this department. Every time I’m in here, you’re on break!

[ they all turn to leave ]

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Hey, Ken, by the way – good job on that report. It was actually really useful! Hooray for you you!

Ken: Thank you?

Passive-Aggressive Pam: No problem! [ Ken exits ] So, Lana.. how’s it been going so far?

Lana: Oh, great. Everyone’s been really nice.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Yeah, they put on quite a show! [ laughs ] Say.. that’s really a cute outfit! I wish I could pull off that funky brick-store look!

Lana: Thanks.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Hey, remind me to tell you about the dress code, okay?

Lana: Is this inappropriate, or something?

Passive-Aggressive Pam: No. No, no, no.. I don’t have a problem with it. There’s no point in you going home today, anyway. [ laughs ] Okay. So, what you do here is, you key in your job number and your client number – it’s not rocket science, we’re all college grads here!

Lana: Well, in my case, junior college.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Oh! Junior college is great! You know, my nephew has a learning disability, and he loves junior college!

Barbershop Quartet: [ singing ]“She’ll casually insult you,
but she’ll say it with a grin.
You’ll think that she is praising you
while you take it on the chin!”

[ Barbershop Quartet quickly stumble out of the scene as it comes back to life ]

Lana: Uh.. Pam.. I was wondering, if it’s okay with you, I was thinking about coming in early tomorrow and doing some reorganizing?

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Ooh.. I love that ambition! Listen, if you end up blowing it off, just leave me a message!

Lana: Oh, no, I’ll be here. I come in with my fiance – he has to come in early, anyway.. he works in Accounting.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Oh, your fiance! Who’s that?

Lana: Sean Bartlett.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: See! I told everyone he wasn’t gay! Good for you. And, you know what, if it doesn’t work out, you’re only.. 27..?

Lana: Uh.. 22.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Oo-ooh! I spy a sun worshipper! Be careful!

Lana: Uh.. Pam? I’m very, very comfortable with conflict.. so, if there’s anything about me, you know, my clothes, my age, where I went to school, you know, you can come right out and tell me.

Passive-Aggressive Pam: Okay. Alright. Great. Thank you. I will keep that in mind. Can I offer you a mint?

It’s that, or what it seems.
You know that compliment was really a slam!
It’s Passive-Aggressive..”

Passive-Aggressive Pam: First time singing?

Barbershop Quartet: “Pa-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-mmmmmm!!!”
