I liked how Jim got over trying to impress the new boss and just went one on one with him. A few more stare downs would have been wonderfully awkward.
Not sure why delivery time started at 4:30 AM. Out of only a handful of clients, how many would have the means to receive paper that early? Maybe they are all in trusting neighborhoods and/or no one wants to steal paper.
Loved this episode. So many funny moments ("Your donuts make me go nuts!", the MSPC van with the korean church writing, Pam describing the MSPC as a five year old driving into a tree). And yet it had Michael pulling off a miracle in the buyout. The only way it would had ended better is if they did fire Charles Miner. You can say that Michael is an idiot in the way he runs the place at time, but he never was as big a kiss ass and a hard ass at the same time while driving the office into the ground as Charles was.

I was thinking the same thing after watching this. And kudos to Michael for sticking with Pam in Sales. I was thinking he would just have her back as a receptionist but it showed Michael's loyalty to the only person who left DM to be with him. A rotaiton of receptionists are now possible (akin to Murphy Brown just not as frequent) and Pam and Jim vying for customers will be awesome.
