Best ep so far this season. Just an absolute showcase once again for Rainn Wilson, who if he doesn't get a Best Supporting/Comedy nominee later this year, it would be just criminal. Between Roll Dick Roll, Crow love, Crane-kicking signs, having his #1 toady status threatened by Ryan the Temp, Everybody Hurts, his burnt pita dance and his ode to Billy Joel he was all over this.

The best part is that the US version more and more seems to be finding its own voice away from the UK version. This is a good thing and it's getting to the point where I love them both for their own distinctive reasons.

This ep was outstanding and is the third awesome episode BJ Novak has written (Diversity Day, Sexual Harrassment).

Agreed. Also, Michael having a Mambo #5 ringtone pretty much sums up Michael Scott for you right there.

What I'm really enjoying, outside the awesome Big Four (and Ryan the Temp)is all the supporting characters really coming into their own.

I am a House fan but since baseball has been on I have tuned into the Earl/Office hour and I say I might have to tape House now. The Office Episode made me laugh throughout. Good stuff. Look forward to next week.

I totally didn't realize that BJ Novak (aka Ryan the Temp) had written three of the episodes. He is a multitalented person.

A callback to Dundees past! A little bit of Angela, over there.

I was wondering what had become of Katie. And the answer is, oh, there she is.

Butch Cassidy & Mozart or The Lone Ranger & Tonto & Bonto?

So I don't want to sound stupid, but Pam's boyfriend works at Dunder-Mifflin? I thought he was a delivery guy or something but it appears he works in shipping? He's the "You guys are all gay" guy, right? Because it shocked the hell out of me when she kisssed him at the end.

Am I missing something? I missed a couple episodes, so that may be it.

Otherwise, this was hands-down the funniest episode yet. I thought the Olympics was great, but this FLEW by. Everyone saying "Pam!" on the "Who would you do?" question floored me, because I spent last night with some co-workers and very much the same thing happened.

But it was the little touches, like poor Kevin sitting sadly by while the women named off every other man in the office, that made this episode.

And, of course, the dessert of the "Ryan started the fire" at the end. The fact that Dwight would STILL be brandishing the pita during his later interview absolutely killed me.

Yeah, he does. "Basketball" from the first season establishes it. That must have been one of the ones you missed. In that episode they have an inter-company basketball game with the office workers vs the shipping department.

I agree with all of the above. This was a great episode. Katie saying she would take "Legally Blonde" as one of her deserted island pinks was a nice touch.

I'm pretty sure they mentioned it during the Pilot episode, and certainly after that, but we only *saw* Roy in the Basketball ep.

Roy was outside with the warehouse guys on one of the season 2 episodes, too.

You know, when Michael was asking for a joke. I think it was 202.

Yep, I missed the basketball episode. I saw the pilot and the joke episode, but didn't realize it was the same person.

Thanks all.

I just saw it, and have to say that the best part of the movie, to me, was that I had no idea what to expect from scene to scene. There were so many twists and turns, but it wasn't overdone, and it worked.
