'The Office': Michael makes Jim and Pam an offer they really can refuse

the-office-christening.jpgThursday's (Nov. 4) episode of "The Office" is called "Christening," and as the title implies, it revolves around Jim and Pam ( John Krasinski and Jenna Fischer) christening their baby Cece.

And as you also might expect, Michael ( Steve Carell) wants in on the action.

"Jim and Pam need to make it very clear to Michael on this day that he's not [Cece's] godfather," executive producer Paul Lieberstein tells Zap2it. "He always jokes around about it, he does his 'Godfather' voice, and they just -- Pam says to him, 'Please, Michael, please -- I just need to hear you say the words.'"

Michael, of course, doesn't take the news well -- but that's not what the episode is really about, Lieberstein says.

For starters, "Jim briefly loses the baby." Oh, that can't be good. But in addition to that, "Michael has a very cathartic experience in the church," Lieberstein says. "He doesn't find God -- I'm not going to say that," but something else does happen that affects him.

What do you think that "cathartic experience" might be? And will it be the thing that starts Michael's move away from Scranton? We'll see when "Christening" airs 9 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC.
