David Brent *always* used to make me shake my head and make me feel very uncomfortable (in a good way) with the things he said and did...that was the character's purpose, natch. This is the first time I can remember that Michael Scott did the same things to me. I can't believe the shit he was saying and how he was acting. Wow. Brilliant. I love this show so much.

Early on in the episode, I heard perhaps the greatest line of the year, so I can't remember any other possibly better lines if I tried. That line is:

I share a birthday with Eva Longoria. So I have a perfect icebreaker if I ever meet Teri Hatcher.

Oh snap.

This is the first episode of The Office that I've ever watched, so I must ask the other W's that watch regularly: do they always employ this kind of comedic awkwardness? You know, like Meet the Parents/Meet the Fockers? I know it's very funny, but sometimes it just got too uncomfortable for my tastes.

I was trying to describe the awesomeness of this episode to my fiance, but there was too much.

-Results were negative
-Michael telling Kevin that he had really bad timing
-The Birthday Poster
-The phone call to Jan
-The "meeting" discussion with Dwight and Andrea, and most hilarious of all, Ryan's reaction.
-Luke Perry
-Taking them to a place "far away from the sun"
-The intercom and "How old are you?"

And of course, what always kills me about this show, is that Michael ends up being a sweet guy at the end without even trying. It's when he tries too hard that he falls on his face.

But the crowning moment was something a lot of people didn't even notice. The "The More You Know" commercials. "Are they black bears or brown bears?... After he's done mauling you..."

Dwight is an absolute GOD.

And yes, Sting, "comedic awkwardness" is this show's middle name. I think that's why it's funny. Witness Ryan's stunned "interview" after the kitchen conversation.

I LOVED the Ryan-Kelli one about office romance. I don't know what it is about those two, but I think they may have quietly become my favorite pairing on the show. B.J. Novak is awesome when doing the silent, stunned "oh shit" look.

Ryan's dazed expression made the show for me, that and the name on the back of the jersey. June may be coming a little too quickly for Pam.....

Edit - The PSA's ( are all right here

"...But don't expect a cookie." "But what if I'm hungry?" "No Cookie."

I rewound Ryan's expression about three times after that. That exchange and reaction were the total, 100% highlight of the series for me so far.

I also loved the 69 Ramen Noodles. His favorite lunch and his favorite number!

Damn! I have to admit, I zipped through the PSA's thinking they were commercials. Thank God I didn't erase them yet!

So much fun.

"Apparently, in the medical community, negative means good."

I love the part at the end when Pam tells what a great day she had, and they flashback to her and Jim at the store, looking very couple-like. Of course, if they don't advance that storyline in some way soon, it could get very old to the viewers.

I have a feeling that we're going to see Michael's realtor more often. I feel bad for the guy, because he's got a good heart, he's just so awkward it's uncomfortable. His interaction with the kids at the ice rink were awesome.

I love any interaction between Michael and Toby. Poor Toby is the only one Michael gets to bully and you can tell he takes great pleasure in it. Great episode again last night, as was Earl.

Wow! How long have they been doing these? These look awesome!

By the by, is that Jim's voice doing the narration in the "Tools" commercial?

Ryan's look of horror, no cookie, the PSA's, just a lot of gold this week. These people are so real it is scary! If you work in an office, you know someone like all of these characters. Kelli and Toby are becoming two of my favorites as well. My only (small) complaint is lifting the "negative" thing from an old Seinfeld, where George gets his biopsy report and thinks that negative results are bad.

Plus there was a Seinfeld episode where they were going to see "Prognosis: Negative", which is a screenplay Larry David wrote in his early days.

But it's like what they said about "The Simpsons" on that episode of "South Park":
    Originally posted by Episode 607, "The Simpsons Already Did It"

    Cartman: Dude, The Simpsons have done everything already. Who cares?
    Stan: Yeah, and they've been on the air for like, 13 years. Of course they've done everything.
    Mr .Garrison: Every idea's been done, Butters, even before The Simpsons.
    Chef: Yeah. In fact, that episode was a rip-off of a Twilight Zone episode.
    Butters: Really? So I shouldn't care if I come up with an idea, and The Simpsons already did it? It doesn't matter!

Yeah, the PSAs were awesome. I didn't know for sure that they were fake until the one with Ryan and Kelli.

Other little things when Michael took all the donuts after Toby forgot his birthday. And notice the gay guy, Oscar, was enjoying the ice skating a little too much.

Was this the first episode you actually saw Ryan and Kelly actually doing something as a couple, by that I mean when they were ice skating? I know they talked about being a couple before and what not but I thought when they were skating together it was the first time you actually saw them together.

"there's five feet of sandwhich left."

"Somebody ate three feet of that?"

Who knew a bologna, tomato and ketchup sub could be so funny.

When Michael checked him into the! With Jim, part of what I like about his character is how cool and calm he can be. He knows how to handle Dwight, which is hilarious - how he so blatently and calmly lied about majoring in Public Speaking in college. He obviously still has a crush on Pam, but plays it so cool...

If Dwight does not win Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy next year, then they should just do away with the category. Even if The office episdoe is off a little, his character still makes me laugh. And while it is the best ensemble sitcom since Newsradio, Dwight stands out the most.
