Dwight Schrute gets a 'Second Life,' still needs a first one

Two characters in Thursday night's episode of 'The Office' banter about the Linden Labs virtual world.

On Thursday night's episode of The Office on NBC, dweeby Dwight Schrute (played by Rainn Wilson) revealed himself to be a Second Life addict--something that doesn't require any suspension of disbelief.

The Second Life banter began when Dwight's notably less nerdy co-worker, Jim (played by John Krasinski), asked Dwight if he was "playing that game again."

"Second Life is not a game," Dwight replied authoritatively. "It is a multi-user virtual environment. It doesn't have points or scores; it doesn't have winners or losers."

With all the deadpan wit that's made The Office the hit that it is, Jim fixed his glance on Dwight and commented, "Oh, it has losers."

Dwight, who said that his "life is so great that (he) literally wanted a second one," is known as Dwight Shelford in-world. Just in case you see him flying around.
