The Return of Amy Ryan to The Office: Booked!

at . Comments

We heard her voice a couple weeks ago, but when will viewers of The Office actually see Amy Ryan return as Michael's one true love, Holly Flax? We now have the answer.

The character will return on the show's one-hour long Christmas episode, scheduled to air on December 9. The installment will be written by Mindy Kalling and directed by Rainn Wilson.

"Holly's in a serious relationship back in Nashua, so she's not thrilled to be back," teased executive producer Paul Lieberstein. "But Michael's not a guy who gives up easily."

Rapping Lovers

Steve Carell, of course, is exiting the show at the end of this season. Many fans figure his departure will tie in to Holly in some way. How will this actually go down?

Sounds like the December 9 episode will start to give us an idea.

The Office Quotes

Sometimes I'll start a sentence, and I don't even know where it's going. I just hope I find it along the way. Like an improv conversation. An improversation.

Michael

When I was in college I used to get wicked hammered. My nickname was Puke. I would chug a fifth of SoCo, sneak into a frat party, polish off a few people's empties, some brewskies, some Jell-O shots, do some body shots off myself, pass out, wake up the next morning, puke, rally, more SoCo, head to class. Probably would have gotten expelled if I had let it affect my grades, but I aced all my courses. They called me Ace. It was totally awesome. Got straight Bs. They called me Buzz.
