Jim gets caught in a lie after he misses a week of work for jury duty. Meanwhile, the accounting staff pay a visit to Angela, who has just given birth prematurely.

Quote from Oscar

Andy: So, what did you bring?
Oscar: Oh yeah, I don't know if it's right, but-
Senator Lipton: Well, if it's anything like that gorgeous wrapping paper, you hit it out of the park.
Angela: Aw, preemie pajamas!
Oscar: Again, it may not be the right size. I can return-
Angela: No, I think he came early just so he could wear these. Thank you.
Kevin: I got Little Kevin "Call of Duty".
[aside to camera:]
Oscar: This baby is clearly not premature. They're lying about the date it was conceived. It's very interesting. And her husband's gay. I don't even know which thread to follow.


Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: I was in Los Angeles last year. Jim tricked me into thinking I'd won a walk-on part on NCIS, but that's not important. While I was being kicked off the lot, I saw food trucks everywhere. Everyone in Los Angeles eats from them. And nobody calls them restaurants.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Nurse, you know that baby in there, baby Philip? Cancel the circumcision.
Nurse: Who are you?
Dwight K. Schrute: I just might be his father.
Nurse: I don't know what that means. We're gonna circumcise him.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Angela: Dwight?
Senator Lipton: Dwight.
Dwight K. Schrute: I want to see the baby.
Erin: Oh, Angela will make you cut your fingernails. It's not worth it.
Dwight K. Schrute: Oh, yes. Oh, what a beautiful child. Prominent forehead, short arms, tiny nose. You will lead millions... [whispers] willingly, or as slaves.
[aside to camera:]
Dwight K. Schrute: That baby is a Schrute. And unless somebody taught Mose sex, that baby is mine.

Quote from Angela

Oscar: Wow, it's so... healthy.
Kevin: I'm going to call him Little Kevin.
Angela: No, you will not.
Erin: Is he really five pounds?
Angela: Mm-hmm.
Erin: Because I squat with five pounds. This- [squats, grunts] yeah, this feels like more than that.
Senator Lipton: No, no, no, he's nine pounds, seven ounces.
Angela: Nine pounds? Really? I thought you said five. You know what? I was under so many drugs, I felt like I was at a James Taylor concert or something, oh.

Quote from Jim

Phyllis: How was jury duty?
Jim: It was pretty uneventful, actually.
Dwight K. Schrute: Can't believe they let someone like you serve on a jury. Makes me question the whole judicial system.
Erin: What was the case?
Jim: Uh, hit and run.
Erin: Ooh. "The case of the hit and run," that's exciting.
Phyllis: Did you send him to the slammer?
Jim: Nope. Not guilty.
Dwight K. Schrute: Of course you found him not guilty. [mocking voice] "Oh, he apologized and I just really want him to like me, hmm."
Jim: We're best friends, actually. We're going wine-tasting next weekend, if you want to come.
Dwight K. Schrute: Not coming, have plans.
Jim: Okay.

Quote from Jim

Jim: I did get called in to jury duty. And they released me around noon, so, didn't think it was worth it to come back to work for a half day. And then the next morning, Pam was a little overwhelmed with the kids so I took an extra day to help out. And then three other days happened.

Quote from Stanley

Andy: Come on, Judge Judy, tell us your case. What were the deets?
Jim: Mine was actually a pretty boring case, so...
Meredith: How could it be boring? You were there for five days. Titillate us.
Stanley: Yeah, you owe us. I had to stay until six twice to cover for you. My wife got to the TV first, had to sit through damn Rizzoli and damn Isles.

Quote from Toby

Jim: So Phyllis, he was here, and then the car came and did- he was like that. Yeah, so it had to be a double backflip, actually.
Toby: You know, when I was on j-duty - uh, Strangler case - we used to recreate the various stranglings with empanadas from- at Ernesto's.
Jim: Oh man, Ernesto's. That was our favorite restaurant too.
Toby: You mean food truck. Ernesto's was a food truck.
Meredith: Toby, shut your hole about the empanadas. Nobody cares about the empanadas.

Quote from Erin

Oscar: We wanted to say hi to the newest little Dunder Mifflinite.
Senator Lipton: Well, meet our not-so-little bundle of joy, Philip Halsted Lipton.
Kevin: Philip is so fat.
Oscar: Kevin!
Kevin: You warned me not to say anything if it was tiny, Oscar. But you didn't prepare me for a big, giant, fat baby.
Angela: Hey.
Senator Lipton: Yes, he's substantial.
Erin: He's more than substantial. He's a monster.
