The gay kiss between Oscar Nunez and Steve Carell was one of the most iconic moments of The Office Season 3. As obviously the cast didn’t anticipate Steve Carell to get carried away, thus, the natural reaction of other characters made the scene more impactful.
However, in a recent podcast, Nunez has revealed that the kiss wasn’t planned, and Steve Carell improvised the kiss.

In the episode “Gay Witch Hunt” of Season 3, Micheal (Steve Carell) calls everyone for a conference to make amends regarding the homophobic behaviour in office.
While Carell discusses about the issues and the problems Oscar faced after accepting his Gay nature, Oscar threatens to quit. In the very next moment, Michael kisses Oscar on his lips in front of all other colleagues.
It got conveyed as a salute from Micheal to Oscar for being who he is, or probably his acceptance of Oscar’s nature.
But when Oscar Nunez revealed that the kiss wasn’t scripted, then our understanding of Carell’s intentions behind that kiss went for a wild exploration.
Steve Carell was supposed to kiss on Oscar on the forehead.
While discussing the scene in the new episode of Office Ladies podcast, Jenna Fischer and Oscar Nunez revealed how the scene was actually planned to play out.
Fischer said: “Originally he hugs you and he was supposed to go in for a kiss, but he chickens out and is supposed to like kiss you on the forehead or something.”
Fischer continued while explaining what Carell improvised: “But I remember sitting in that room and when Steve said the line ‘I want you to burn this into your brains’ that was the moment. We were like, ‘That was not scripted. What does Steve have in his head right now?’”
Nunez agreed that he wasn’t expecting the kiss at all, and when it happened, he was caught off-guard. As Nunez discussed the scene and Steve’s improvised kiss on his lips, he simply said “Carell’s insane.”
Carell’s indeed insane. No one can disagree with that.
Also, Steve and Oscar both are great improvisers, and that’s what made The Office what it is. However, why Steve Carell improvised the gay kiss with Oscar Nunez in The Office and what was going in his head, can only be answered by Steve.
