It value 'The Workplace' $45,000 to make this comical music second occur

Michael Scott loves an excellent music second, and his style is not low-cost.

On the newest episode of Stitcher’s Workplace Girls podcast, former co-stars Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey chatted all in regards to the Season 6 episode “Homicide.” In case you want an episode refresher, Michael has the Scranton department play a murder-mystery recreation to distract them from rumors that Dunder Mifflin is submitting for chapter.

In the course of the podcast episode, Fischer and Kinsey chatted about every little thing from that well-known Workplace finger weapons meme to one more memorable music second in Michael’s workplace.

5 minutes into “Homicide,” Michael is spiraling alone in his workplace. He is blasting music to drown out his chapter fears, and as soon as it is clear his conduct is stressing out his colleagues, Jim walks in and turns off the tune.

The track Michael’s blasting is the 1998 banger “Lullaby” by Shawn Mullins(opens in a brand new tab). And apparently it value a fairly penny to have Michael wallow to (and ultimately sing) the catchy lyrics, “Every part is gonna be all proper. Rockabye. Rockabye.”

The Workplace‘s line producer Randy Cordray advised Fischer that the present paid $45,000 simply to make use of that track within the episode.

Actually? Price it. The track completely made the scene.

The Workplace Girls podcast has been a pleasant supply of monetary filming tidbits. In previous episodes, Fischer and Kinsey revealed {that a} track from the “Café Disco” episode of The Workplace value $40,000, one in all Michael’s jokes from “A Benihana Christmas” value $60,000, and Jim’s gasoline station proposal to Pam (the costliest scene in Workplace historical past) value a whopping $250,000 to tug off. Dang.
