THE OFFICE, Maura Tierney

Mrs. Robert Calfornia (James Spader) is coming to Dunder Mifflin, y'all!

While we're extremely stoked for Maura Tierney's guest appearance as Susan California on The Office, it seems like her TV husband is less than thrilled by her presence in his workspace. Unfortunately, new boss Andy (Ed Helms) finds himself caught in the middle, which leads to some pretty hilariously awkward tension among the trio.

So why is Robert so down on the idea of Susan working at Dunder Mifflin? 

We're not exactly sure why Robert doesn't want Susan to join the Scranton branch, we just know that he really doesn't want her there. At all. 

In the first video, Andy is just doin' some work while Jim (John Krasinski) looks on before Robert bangs on the window to inform them that his wife is looking for employment. He also informs Andy that he is under no circumstances allowed to hire Susan. Sounds pretty simple, right? 

Pump the brakes! When is anything simple on The Office? When Susan and Robert meet with Andy to find her a position (she prefers accounting, thank you very much), the boss is having a hard time turning her down. Why? Because his CEO is putting up a fight, demanding that Andy find her a job. Yeah, we're just as confused as poor Andy in this situation, but lucky for us we get to laugh it off while he sweats it out under the glare of Robert. 

The Office airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
