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

Dwight: What is my perfect crime? I break into Tiffany's at midnight. Do I go for the vault? No, I go for the chandelier. It's priceless. As I'm taking it down, a woman catches me. She tells me to stop. It's her father's business. She's Tiffany. I say no. We make love all night. In the morning the cops come and I escape in one of their uniforms. I tell her to meet me in Mexico but I go to Canada. I don't trust her. Besides, I like the cold. Thirty years later, I get a postcard. I have a son and he's the chief of police. This is where the story gets interesting: I tell Tiffany to meet me in Paris, by the Trocadero. She's been waiting for me all these years; she's never taken another lover. I don't care, I don't show up. I go to Berlin. That's where I stashed the chandelier.

Guess what, I have flaws. What are they? Oh, I don't know. I sing in the shower. Sometimes I spend too much time volunteering. Occasionally I'll hit somebody with my car. So sue me... No, don't sue me. That is the opposite of the point that I'm trying to make.
