Clients is the second studio album by American heavy metal band The Red Chord. It was released on May 2005 via Metal Blade Records; the title of the album was derived from an in-joke and story between Guy Kozowyk's family and friends, referring to the mentally disabled students for whom a member of Kozowyk's family drove a bus. This term spread out to mean anybody for whom one provided service; the title reflects the songs, as the songs are stories from and about "clients", or mentally disabled people, with whom Kozowyk has had experience working in a convenience store located next to a psychiatric rehabilitation/hospital. Each song is a different "client", or a different person with a mental ailment, ranging from schizophrenia, to multiple personality disorder, to extreme obsessive compulsive disorder; the song "Black Santa" would best describe the album and its meanings, as it depicts everything, used as an inspiration in the album: Kozowyk's job, the people he encountered, the stories he heard, the notion that everybody both has and is a "client", meaning everybody works for somebody, that everybody is not mentally stable.
The Red Chord released singles from Clients. "Antman", the first single, was directed by David Brodsky of My Good Eye and notably features live ants crawling on Greg Weeks, the band's bassist. It had the honor of being the most played video on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball in 2005. "Blue Line Cretin" was directed by acclaimed artist Paul Romano. "Black Santa", again directed by David Brodsky, was shot on location at the notorious Manhattan nightclub, Crobar. The claymation "battle" between the Antman and Black Santa characters was executed by Randy Gordon-Gatica and conceived of by Guy and Brodsky, it was nominated for Best Video of 2006 on MTV2's Headbanger's Ball. "Fixation on Plastics" was shot as a video and is a performance-only video.

The Client (The Office)
"The Client" is the seventh episode of the second season of the American comedy television series The Office, the show's thirteenth episode overall. Written by Paul Lieberstein, who acts in the show as Toby Flenderson, directed by Greg Daniels, the episode first aired in the United States on November 8, 2005 on NBC; the series depicts the everyday lives of office employees in the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. In this episode, Jan Levinson and Michael Scott begin a relationship after landing an important client. Meanwhile, the rest of the office finds a screenplay written by Michael and they decide to read it together; the idea for Jan and Michael to have a romantic relationship was conceived by Steve Carell as far back as the filming of the pilot episode. The kiss between the two was rehearsed and filmed "many, many times", according to B. J. Novak. While filming, Steve Carell and Tim Meadows improvised a good majority of their dinner scene, but most of it never made the final cut.
During the production of the episode, the cast and crew were informed by NBC that the show would be picked up for a whole 22 episodes, a move that "surprised" them. The episode received positive reviews from critics and earned a Nielsen rating of 3.8 in the 18–49 demographic, being viewed by 7.5 million viewers. Michael Scott and Jan Levinson meet with Christian, who represents the governmental paper interests of the entire surrounding county. Taking him on could mean the branch will not have to downsize, a threat, looming for the past year. Jan is disgusted when Michael changes the meeting location from a hotel meeting room to Chili's without permission and persists in jokes and personal discussion instead of getting down to business. However, she discovers at the end of the day that there is a method to his madness, as the bonding between Michael and Christian allows him to close the deal. Afterwards, in the parking lot and the divorced Jan kiss and leave together. During the meeting Michael calls Pam Beesly to read from one of the joke books in his desk, where she finds a screenplay written by Michael entitled Threat Level: Midnight, starring himself as "Agent Michael Scarn".
The staff perform a read-through of the script. They realize Michael based his incompetent sidekick on Dwight Schrute, but changed the name with a search and replace, which did not affect the single misspelling of Dwight's name. Dwight is upset and shuts down the exercise to invite everyone to set off fireworks outside, but only Kevin Malone follows; when the staff discuss their worst first dates, Pam astounds them with a story of how her date forgot about her and left her behind at a high school hockey game. Their astonishment increases. Jim Halpert and Pam break off their respective evening plans to enjoy an impromptu dinner on the roof and watch Dwight and Kevin fool around with fireworks; the next day Jim half-jokingly remarks to Pam. Pam responds in an unexpectedly harsh manner and a dismayed Jim makes an unwise crack at Pam about the hockey game date she earlier mentioned. Hurt, Pam breaks off the conversation; that morning, having spent the night in the office, sees Jan coming by to retrieve her car, igniting gossip that she had sex with Michael.
Michael reveals to the documentary crew that they made out and talked long into the night before falling asleep. Jan calls and says she regrets what happened accusing Michael of deliberately getting her drunk to initiate a romantic encounter with her, but Michael refuses to accept her change of heart, he and Jim share. This episode was the third episode of the series directed by Greg Daniels. Daniels had directed the episodes "Basketball" and "The Dundies". "The Client" was written by Paul Lieberstein, who acts on the show as human resources director Toby Flenderson. The idea for Jan and Michael to have a romantic relationship was conceived by Steve Carell as far back as the filming of the pilot episode. According to writer and producer Greg Daniels "it was like he was turned on by his teacher." Writer and actor Paul Lieberstein said that the first idea that anybody came up for the episode was the final shot, where Jim and Michael look at each other and shake their heads, suggesting that they had been through similar experiences.
The rest of the episode was written to lead to that scene. The scene where Oscar tells a story about a date getting a background check on him was based on an actual date that Paul Lieberstein went on. While filming, Steve Carell and Tim Meadows improvised a lot of their dinner scene, but most of it never made the final cut. One improvised scene that did make the final cut was the "Baby Back Ribs" song. In an interview, Jenna Fischer said. Fischer recalled that "there was a small crew up on the roof and they had the cameras far away." After the main shooting ended, producers decided to do a re-shoot to explain the "Dwigt" situation and concisely. The kiss between Michael and Jan was rehearsed and filmed "many, many times", according to B. J. Novak. While editing the kiss between Michael and Jan, Greg Daniels brought many people into the editing room to see if they thought the kiss was too long or not long enough. During the production of the episode, the cast and crew were informed by NBC that the show would be picked up for a whole 22 episodes.
