In this DVD clip from the episode "The Target," Dwight (Rainn Wilson) explains that his pal Trevor (Chris Gethard) is "a self-professed private investigator" and "a master of obscure martial arts forms."
And this guy's not afraid to give a demo. He shows off his skill at a "medieval form of wrestling" that no one's ever heard of.
"And that's an advantage for me because you can't win if you don't know the rules," Trevor says, before breaking into a series of moves with Dwight that look suspiciously like a deranged arm-wrestling match, complete with a thumb-grab violation.
Still, Angela's cautiously wondering what will happen if this PI gets caught doing the job.
"Don't worry about me, little girl," he tells her as he busts some bizarre moves. "I slip through their fingers ... ungraspable, like ghost." (Note to Trevor: She's not worried about you; she's worried about herself!)

Back at the office, Pam (Jenna Fischer) is trying to pretty up the Dunder Mifflin warehouse by painting a picture-perfect mural, but she gets caught coloring outside the lines after she makes a grid on the wall for a guide. (Yes, she has a fear of failing.)
Too bad perky receptionist Erin (Ellie Kemper) catches her in the act: "Oh, I see what you're going for — graph paper," she says. But Pam downplays things by telling her it's just the primer — with a grid.
Of course, Pam has bigger problems than an annoying admin questioning her artistic abilities: "It's a lot of pressure," she says. "People work in this warehouse every day, and I don't want them to look up and say 'Boy, that Pat really screwed up this one.'"
"A lot of people who work in the warehouse think my name is Pat," Pam reveals. (Oh well, at least she won't have to change her monogramming!)
Of course, as Japanese dock worker Hide later says, there are so many things "more scary than painting." You know, like Japanese government and the Chinese navy?
"What is Pat afraid of?" Hide asks, before declaring: "Pat is afraid of ... Pat!"
But what are we most afraid of in this scene? It has to be that flailing private eye!
"The Office — The Ninth and Final Season" is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.
