Wow. The birth of Jim and Pam's baby and aftermath went beyond "comedy of errors". It was kind of like a disaster movie. Jim and Pam completely fell apart, took turns acting insane, and concurrently acted insane.

Pam's refusal to go to the hospital until midnight was genuinely frightening. Obviously, they're not going to kill Pam but it was uncomfortable to watch her be so obstinate about her and her baby's health, even if their HMO is terrible. (Is this the same health plan Michael set up in season one? Sabre doesn't have a better one?)

There were moments when it seemed like their daughter might not live though the night from their combined incompetence - luckily, she was sleeping soundly and it was the roommate's baby Pam was nursing. (Salma Hayek might not see what was so alarming about it.)

I thought the nurse's reactions to Jim were some of the funniest moments in the episode. "Oh good. You know everything."

Nice guest spots from Pam's mom and Isabelle. Wouldn't mind seeing more of Isabelle. I'm Dwight and Angela-ed out, and I think Dwight also feels the same.

I liked Michael playing matchmaker. "I am going to fill the empty voids in your life with love. I am going to fill that empty hole in your body with another person!"

Poor Kevin. He couldn't get Holly, he couldn't get Erin. What happened to the woman he met last year that he was making out with in "Cafe Disco"?

The throwaway sound gags of the cop pulling Dwight over for impersonating a police officer and addressing him by name over the bullhorn was great.

Dwight finding mold in the Halpert's kitchen: "So I did what anyone would do: I read a book, had a bath, had a good night's sleep, and made plans to eradicate it. I also made plans to ask Jim where he bought his marvelous sheets."

Meredith might have had the line of the episode about never getting married: "Like Clooney!"

Erin and Andy is on! Only good things will happen.

Are you suggesting someone will hit Andy's leg with a random car? Perhaps out behind the warehouse?

Oscar has the line of the night "No, the hospital has dictionaries, bring a thesaurus."

Good episode, but seemed to REALLY stretch things out to make it an hour show.

That last quote was directed at Pam, and the nurse was a jerk for that one. Regardless, the show was remarkably true-to-life about what the first few moments of having your first baby is like. So much awkwardness and uncertainty, not to mention lack of sleep. Once they got to the 'nursing the wrong baby bit' it fell off the reality tracks, but I think you get my point.

"That baby's gonna have a lot of hair."

God I missed NBC Thursdays.

The show was definitely worth the wait. I'm lost on what car Michael is driving now - was that his that they took to the hospital or Jim & Pam's? It would explain the six parking tickets.

And of course you can determine the gender of the child by the temperature of the womb after sex!

Dwight sleeping nude in Jim's bed makes up for all of the pranks over the years, no question. And Jim will never know.

I'm glad Pam finally gave in and went to the hospital but Stanley having them hold the elevator for him took the cake.

In my experience, it's the patient and family that's dying to get to go home, not the other way around. The nurses are usually in no hurry to get you checked out.

This episode had it's moments, but I always like the episodes where they are just doing stupid random stuff in the office over the major storyline episodes.

The pregnant Mrs. Goon and I alternately laughed and cringed through this episode, making lots of mental notes to "not do that".

(particularly breast-feed the wrong child)
