Titled as such because no one in this thread gets any points for guessing the thing that Justin mentions prominantly.

The teaser would have had us beleive that there was some sort of contrived Pam-Jim thing coming in this, but there really wasn't at all. Although Jim probably blabbed the truth to the wrong person.

What's continuingly great is the cast members who are in non-BCS roles who get one joke for episode hit it out of the park every time they're given something.

Lost in the shuffle of all the one-sided Michael-Josh competitiveness and Pam's rotten date was one of the sadder installments of Michael Scott: Poor Bastard, where he wishes to one day be part of an inside joke, and Jim and Josh do a take that almost put Edward R. Meow's to shame. Almost.

It's almost redundant at this point to say "good episode tonight".

No Rashida Jones this week? For shame...

Anyhoo, another strong episode in a string of 30-something of them.

I was a little disappointed given the strength of the season premiere, which also made it a tough act to follow.

The funniest laugh was the very last scene:

"God, I hope that's urine."

That had me rolling...

This was one of my favorite episodes of ever, and Jerome Bettis demonstrating that he knows how to deliver lines in an Office environment had little to do with it.

A very good episode. I kind of like the Jim/Michael dynamic, and how they bond. Seems that Jim is the only person that Michael has normal conversations with. See the Booze Cruise episode, as an example. Very cool stuff.

It'll be interesting to see how Michael deals with Jim's confession. I'm betting he'll say something like "Jim left because of you, Pam" sometime next week.

In any case, I quite liked this episode; and I look forward to the next one.

::Jim walks in on Angela in Dwight's room::

"Dwight hired a hooker!"

And nice to see Michael land Hammermill as a client. I like that they make sure to show he isn't TOTALLY incompetent when it comes to his job.

I am trying to think of which made me laugh harder:

- Kevin: "If I wasn't engaged, I would totally hit that."
- Michael's face after Jan says, "Michael, do I have to stay on top of you 24 hours a day?"
- Stanley: "If you do that, you'll have to put out." (and Phyllis agreeing)

Who was Creed introducing himself to? I must have missed something, because I thought it was Meredith...um, unless that was the joke, that he doesn't know anyone in the office...

Yeah, it was Meredith. He also called Angela "Andrea". So, yeah, that was the joke.

I also liked Pam subtly buttoning up her shirt (after Michael advised her to unbutton the top button earlier in the office) when she figured out how much of a lame-o her date was.

I thought he just made that up to brag like he always does. Good for him, I was beginning to wonder why he still has a job at all.

Ditto. It was an entertaining show, but I didnt laugh out loud nearly as often as I usually do.

I'm not so sure. Michael seemed to handle Jim's booze cruise confession pretty well, something tells me he keeps this one to himself too (Unless I missed it where he spilled the beans about that, I didnt watch every episode last season).

Speaking of the Jim/Michael dynamic, it looks like they're planting the seeds now for Dwight to become jealous of their "friendship" when the 2 offices merge. Especially now that Jim got a promotion, is he actually higher than Dwight now?

Yep, you missed it. The episode was called "The Secret", two episodes after "Booze Cruise". Michael decides Jim needs some cheering up, so he takes him to Hooters. When Accounting questions him on it, he says that Jim need cheering up because "he's in love with a co-worker that's engaged".

This was also the episode where we, the viewers, discovered that Oscar was gay, although Dwight was too dumb to realize it.

They sorta implied that Jim's the Assistant Regional Manager at Stamford, as according to Angela the convention was for managers. Why else would Jim be there?

I also sorta like the implication that Jim's a very good salesman when he doesn't have Dwight (and Pam) around to distract him.

Although I loved the fact that in spite of being aware of the fact that spending whole days to prank a coworker was a waste of his life, he couldn't be in Dwight's presence for more than two minutes before he was trying to think of ways to get at him.

Wouldn't Pam probably know already, though? She knows she shot him down. She knows Jim left shortly thereafter. Surely she's at least considered that the two might be connected. Michael could perhaps spill the beans to some of the others, though, who are unaware of what happened with Jim and Pam. Then it can get back to Roy.

Sorry. Not one of my favorites.
Too much situation. Not enough comedy.
If this was the first episode I showed to a newcomer to The Office, they'd be like "I don't get it".
So now Toby likes Pam? Wonder how long that will go on?

I know they are building up for later, but I want everyone back in the office.
This is like watching Cheers, except Norm is now going to a bar in another state, then Sam hangs out with him at a hotel the next week.
