  • Trivia

    • Michael was dancing with two babies. One of them was the son of writer Michael Schur, whose wife played the baby's mom.

    • When Jan lets Michael hold Astrid, the baby has a pacifier. When Michael gives the baby to Phyllis, Astrid's pacifier is gone.

  • Quotes

    • Michael: Jan Levinson is coming in today, and she is in the terminal stages of her pregnancy.

    • Michael: (to Phyllis) If I'm not mistaken, we gave you your wedding shower here. We all came into this room and gave you a golden shower.

    • Jim: (using diagram) Jan is about to have a baby with a sperm donor, and Michael is preparing for the birth of a watermelon with Dwight. Now, this baby will be related to Michael through... (draws question mark) delusion.

    • Stanley: I do not like pregnant women in my workspace. They are always complaining. I have varicose veins, too. I have swollen ankles, I'm constantly hungry. Do you think my nipples don't get sore, too? Do you think I don't need to know the fastest way to the hospital?

    • Michael: If a baby were President there would be no taxes, there would be no war, there would be no government, and things could get terrible. It would actually be a better screenplay idea than a suggestion.

    • Dwight: Babies are one of my many areas of expertise. Growing up, I performed my own circumcision.
