The Office (UK) Trivia Questions

1. Who plays the part of David Brent?

From Quiz
Brent - Chilled Out Entertainer

Answer: Ricky Gervais

Ricky Gervais is an actor, comedian, writer and director from Reading in England. He co-wrote 'The Office' with Stephen Merchant who he met working for radio station XFM. Martin Freeman plays Tim on the show and Robin Ince appears in one episode as Stuart Foot. Steve Carell appears in the American version of the show in which Gervais has also appeared as Brent.

2. In the first episode of Series 1, Tim puts Gareth's stapler in jelly. What colour is the jelly?

From Quiz 15 Ways to Make Trouble in The Office

Answer: Yellow

It's the third time that Tim's done that. It wasn't even funny the first time. Gareth doesn't trust the way jelly moves.

3. Gareth's best friend is 'The Oggmonster' or 'Oggy' for short. What is 'Oggy's' real first name?

From Quiz "The Office" (UK) - Minor Characters

Answer: Nathan

Gareth often talks about 'Oggy' and has several telephone conversations with him but 'The Oggmonster' only appears in the "Red Nose Day" episode. He comes into the office collecting for charity but doesn't stay long because David Brent makes personal comments about his height, his looks and his nickname and he storms out upset. During this exchange we learn his real name is Nathan. 'Oggy' was played by co-writer and co-producer of the show, Stephen Merchant.

4. Episode 1 introduces most of the main characters who work in and around Wernham Hogg. What television soap opera does David do an impersonation from when he first meets Ricky Howard?

From Quiz Stepping Inside "The Office": First Series

Answer: EastEnders

Ricky (Oliver Chris) appears only in the first series of "The Office", and joins the team as a temporary worker. Upon being introduced to Ricky, David immediately goes into his impression of a scene from "EastEnders", which also has a character named Ricky. David Brent is also played by actor Ricky Gervais.

5. In episode 1, what schoolyard role does Tim liken Gareth's position as "Team Leader" to?

From Quiz "The Office": Second Series

Answer: Milk Monitor

Tim and Gareth are arguing over who has the "superior" position - Tim as Senior Sales Rep or Gareth as Team Leader. Tim points out that while he has been given a pay rise and greater responsibility, Gareth's job is just a title to get him to do extra work for free, similiar to the Milk Monitor's job at school. It turns out that Gareth was, indeed, Milk Monitor when he was at school (if people were rude to him he would give them their milk last so it was warm).

6. We'll start it simple. Who plays the anally-retentive 'team leader' Gareth Keenan?

From Quiz Know Your Office?

Answer: Mackenzie Crook

Martin Freeman plays Tim Canterbury, and Ewen Macintosh plays the now-cult figure of 'Big Keith' from accounts. If you don't know who Ricky Gervais plays, then this may not be the quiz for you :)

7. In the first episode we discover Gareth has a fear of which food?

From Quiz 'The Office' Simply The Best

Answer: Jelly

We find out after Tim encases his stapler in a jelly.

8. Covering all episodes of "The Office", who does David Brent NOT do an impression of?

From Quiz 'The Office', Part 2

Answer: Elvis

His Johnny Vegas impression: "Monkey!" His Eric Hitchmo: "I do not agree with that in the workplace!" Harry Enfield: "Only me!"

9. Episode 1: What is Tim's new title at the start of series two?

From Quiz 'The Office' Season 2

Answer: Senior Sales Representative

Tim mocks Gareth's title of 'team leader' likening it to being a milk monitor!

10. What is the name of the character Ricky Gervais plays?

From Quiz 'The Office'

Answer: David Brent

He was the manager of the office for series one and two. Ricky is co-writer of 'The Office'. There have been two series and a Christmas special and Ricky has said there will be no more. It won two BAFTAS.

11. Who is the writer and star of "The Office"?

From Quiz 'The Office'

Answer: Ricky Gervais & Gervais

A very funny man, who comes from my home town of Reading!

12. Which football team does Brent support?

From Quiz Brent - Chilled Out Entertainer

Answer: Reading F.C

We learn Brent supports Reading F.C during a conversation with Neil and Brent's 'best friend' Chris Finch. We are given the impression that they aren't friends at all and witness bullying from Finch towards Brent. Brent however thinks Finch is the funniest and most intelligent man he knows. In the final episode when Finch makes a nasty comment about Brent's blind date, Brent finally grows up but I can't tell you exactly what he says here!

13. An email containing a picture of David's head superimposed onto a pornographic image circulates around the office in Episode 2, much to David's dismay. Gareth is given the task of seeking out the culprit. Who is responsible for the image?

From Quiz 15 Ways to Make Trouble in The Office

Answer: Finchy

Obviously embarrassed by the picture, David tries to hide this by telling the staff of Wernham Hogg, who have all seen the picture (even the cleaning lady, who doesn't even have access to email), that it offends women. Tim eventually reveals that Finchy used his computer to send the picture to David.

14. Apart from 'Oggy', which is the only one of Gareth's friends to make a personal appearance in "The Office"?

From Quiz "The Office" (UK) - Minor Characters

Answer: Jimmy the Perv

Jimmy the Perv accompanies Oggy when they are collecting money for "Red Nose Day". He quickly lives up to his name by giving Dawn several pounds for repeated kisses and is obviously anticipating a good snog; Dawn is not really sure how to deal with him but she is saved by David Brent's altercation with 'Oggy' which brings that particular exchange to a halt. 'Gobbler' sounds like an erudite sort of chap; he has a birthday in one episode and Gareth buys him a particularly 'tasteful' toy which he is sure 'Gobbler' will enjoy. Tim is rather less than impressed with the small, and less than perfectly formed, dancing figure who shows rather more detail than most people require! Rather fortunately perhaps 'Gobbler' never actually appears in any episode. 'Fishfingers' gets one or two mentions by Gareth, it seems he is something of a philanderer. Dawn and Tim are quite intrigued to hear Gareth talking to a girlfriend called Anne on speakerphone; they had always teased that Gareth about his sexuality. However when Anne asks Gareth if he is "going to bring the toys?" Gareth quickly knocks the speakerphone off and looks rather embarrassed. Tim very rarely shows interest in Gareth's activities but this makes him very curious indeed; "is it Buckeroo?". Anne never appears in person in the show.

15. In the first episode we also meet David's boss, Jennifer Taylor Clarke,(although Brent is reluctant to call her that). When she arrives at the office, who does Jennifer ask Dawn to call?

From Quiz Stepping Inside "The Office": First Series

Answer: Maintenance

Jennifer (Stirling Gallacher) comes for a meeting with David to discuss cutbacks and the merging of the Slough and Swindon branches of Wernham Hogg. When she walks into the office she mentions to receptionist Dawn (Lucy Davis) that she noticed a nasty smell in the lifts, and asks Dawn to call Maintenance to check it out.

16. What is Gareth doing the first time we see him and Tim at the beginning of episode 2?

From Quiz "The Office": Second Series

Answer: Using a wrist exerciser

After a very amusing dialogue between the pair, Gareth explains to a somewhat bewildered Tim that he is building up his wrists for orienteering.

17. Who plays Ricky Howard, the young intern who appears only in series 1?

From Quiz Know Your Office?

Answer: Oliver Chris

Ralph Ineson plays Brent's coarse mate Chris Finch, and Joel Beckett plays Dawn's defensive fiance Lee. Vincent Franklin is Rowan, the facilitator for Wernham Hogg's training day.

18. What is the actual name of Gareth's friend nicknamed 'The Ogg Monster'?

From Quiz 'The Office' Simply The Best

Answer: Nathan

The Ogg Monster appeared in the Comic Relief episode and was played by the series' co-writer Stephen Merchant.

19. In the Christmas special, what was the name of the girl David called on his carphone to talk about the blind date?

From Quiz 'The Office', Part 2

Answer: Gillian & Gillen & Gillien

He then more or less hung up on her as he realised she didn't like the boss from "The Office" documentary...aka David Brent...himself.

20. Episode 1: What is the name of David Brent's female boss?

From Quiz 'The Office' Season 2

Answer: Jennifer

Jennifer is David's regional boss who calls him into the office at the beginning of episode one to complain about his impolite language to co-workers. It is also in this episode that we first see David with a direct boss working in the same office. Neil used to be in David's position in the Swindon branch until it was closed. David makes many reference to the awkwardness of this situation.

21. In the Christmas special of 'The Office', we are told the name of Neil's girlfriend, what is it?

From Quiz 'The Office'

Answer: Rebecca

David is noticeably very annoyed at the fact Neil is getting married. We also find out she is a doctor, and the date they set for the wedding is September.

22. Who plays Dawn, the receptionist?

From Quiz 'The Office'

Answer: Lucy Davis

Lucy is the daughter of comedian Jasper Carrot. She had a small role in the TV adaptation of "Pride and Prejudice", which is best known for introducing Colin Firth to the world!

23. Brent was once in a rock band. What was the name of the band?

From Quiz Brent - Chilled Out Entertainer

Answer: Foregone Conclusion

Brent claims his band Foregone Conclusion was once supported by Texas. Texas is a real life successful Scottish pop band. Seona Dancing was the name of Ricky Gervais' band that split in 1984. Much of the series is based around Brent's boasting and playing up to the cameras and claiming to be a 'chilled out entertainer'. He does indeed play the guitar and we hear him sing a couple of his own songs.

24. David and Chris "Finchy" Finch lost the quiz in Episode 3. Finchy couldn't handle losing, so instead he says that if he throws something over the pub, he wins the quiz. What does he throw over?

From Quiz 15 Ways to Make Trouble in The Office

Answer: Tim's shoe

Finchy loses out to Ricky, the temp, who answered the question "Which Shakespeare play features a character called Caliban?" correctly (it's The Tempest, in case you were wondering). Being the bad loser that he is, Finchy demands a rematch, but settles on throwing an object over the pub. Tim's shoe becomes that object. If it makes it over, Finchy wins the quiz. It made it over. Being the bad winner that he is, he rubs it in Tim and Ricky's faces.

25. David Brent is interviewed by Helena for an article to be published in an in-house publication. Which magazine does Helena work for?

From Quiz "The Office" (UK) - Minor Characters

Answer: Inside Paper

David had previously appeared on the cover of "Inside Paper" after being awarded 'Manager of the Month'! One can only wonder at the incompetence of his fellow managers if Brent was considered the best. Helena does not arrive at the best of times as it is David's last day as an employee of Wernham Hogg but he is putting a brave face on things. He thinks he can get by by going freelance and by giving 'motivational' speeches for Cooper and Webb. However when Ray and Jude turn up to tell him that C&W no longer require his services either, Brent finally cracks and takes some of his anger out on the unfortunate Helena.

26. What does Keith do quite prominently during his appraisal with David?

From Quiz "The Office": Second Series

Answer: Chew gum

Poor Keith doesn't seem to understand the whole appraisal process, at least as David would like him to. For his "Strengths", he lists "Accounts" (which is his job) and for "Weaknesses" he writes "Eczema".

27. With whom does Ricky have a steamy affair?

From Quiz Know Your Office?

Answer: Donna

Brent is none too pleased when he learns of the fling. Donna (Sally Bretton) is another character who is present only in series 1.

28. In the first series, who did David say he bought ties off?

From Quiz 'The Office', Part 2

Answer: Nobby Burton

"Two for a tenner, yes please!"

29. Episode 2: Who is David Brent's favourite actor of all time?

From Quiz 'The Office' Season 2

Sidney Poitier was born in Miami in 1927 but is a native of the Bahamas.

30. What is the full name of David's right hand man?

From Quiz 'The Office'

Answer: Gareth Keenan

"I could catch a monkey - if I was starving I could"!
