Season 6Edit

When Dwight tells Hank that he is buying the building Hank remarks that he owns 1/8th of a piece of property in Pittsburgh however Dwight replies with "Well, I'm 1/8ths proud of you." He also tells Hank to enjoy the chair he is sitting in while he can for soon he will have Hank standing like a guard in Buckingham Palace. Hank seems slightly worried by this comment (Whistleblower).

Season 7Edit

When Michael is checking people off his list of people he wants to say goodbye to before moving to Colorado, Hank is seen on there and is one of the last people on there. Although Michael never says goodbye to him in the actual episode he does in a deleted scene where he tries to give an emotional and meaningful goodbye to him but Hank just argues with him over his tip. Michael sighs and checks Hank off his list (Goodbye Michael).

Season 8Edit

Jim and Dwight take a break from loading paper shipments onto the warehouse trucks and go to "Dwight's Caffiene Corner". Dwight orders for Erin and asks for a "hot chocolate tea". In a deleted scene Hank tells Dwight that its not a real drink however Jim comes up with an idea for what it could be that sounds pretty good. Pam then asks about it and Hank pretends that he thought of it and that its his recipe (Lotto).

Jim and Pam try to cancel the prank of hiring a magician to scare Nellie after they learn her ex-boyfriend was one. Pam asks Hank to keep him out. They later confront him over the fact he came and left. Hank then sarcastically suggests that perhaps he used magic to do it (Welcome Party).

Season 9Edit

When Jim is trying to find a quiet place to have his phone conversation with his fellow investors, he tries the area near Meredith's van. He leans against it causing the car alarm to go off. Hank suddenly comes out of the building believing the sound heralds that the local skating hooligans have returned. As Jim runs away to a quiet spot, Hank stands in the middle of the parking lot shouting at the non-existent skaters to stop cowering and fight and that their misdeeds end now (The Whale).
