David Brent appears in American Office, tears hole in space-time continuum

Ricky Gervais made a guest appearance, as David Brent, on the American version of the Office recently. Which created a weird question that now needs resolving:

“The pilot episode of the American Office was an ever-so-slightly altered version of the same script of Ricky Gervais’ first episode of the UK Office. As separate entities, this makes sense. After the pilot, the American version deviated almost entirely from the plot of its UK counterpart. But now that it’s confirmed that these two do exist in the same world, how could two human beings could live such eerily similar days — repeating pretty much the exact same lines of dialogue? ”
