So much awesome.

The usual Mike v. Toby fun.

"Special" Kevin.

A nice, logical progression of PB&J.

The perfect fate for Ryan.

More party planning drama.

MOSE!

OFFICE SEX!!!

"You were going to give him...your...watch!"

Niiiiice. Easily the best of the season, and the great finale streak stays alive.

Incredible goodness all around. I can't think of anything I didn't like. Fantastic surprises.

We'll miss you, Toby!

Congratulations, Andy & Angela! ...kind of.

I would have preferred Michael to tell Jan off. It would have been nice for once for Michael to get the upper hand on Jan.

Besides that, just a great episode and I applaud the perfect end to Ryan.

By the way, is Angela pregnant in real life? She looked a little heavy on screen.

All the problems are the same, but you know instead of all the funny, pithy dialogue, everybody is really pissed off and tense. Marriage is like a tense, unfunny version of 'Everybody Loves Raymond', only it doesn't last 22 minutes. It lasts forever."

The Yoga/Yoda moment for me was a highlight.

Too bad we couldn't see the real exit interview Michael had planned.

Lots of stuff left up in the air, which is good I guess for a season finale. With the strike, it feels like we were just getting goimg again.

Sorry to see Jim and Pam get their moment ruined like that...

I forgot when, but they said on the news that she gave birth with Jenna Fischer by her side.

Great season finale. Oscar had the line of the night when talking about Ryan's downfall:

"The real crime, I think, was the beard."

Phyllis upstaging Angela with the party planning was awesome, as was Kevin and Holly ("I'm am going to so bang her").

I don't know who to fell worse for: Jim for not being able to pull the trigger or Toby for not being able to tell pam hgis true feelings for her and getting dicked by Michael even at the very end.

And, while it has been noted before, I have to say it again: Dwight is a MACK. Anyone who goes after a financee right after the proposal has balls.

The only dissapointing thiong about the ep? The youtube vid of Ryan's arrest doesn't really exist (I check "Whoa check this out!" and got nothing.)

Wonderful episode that left SO many possibilities for next year. The only thing I think I may have liked (and this is really minor) better is if they were more ambiguous about who Jan's baby really belonged to (when she said it wasn't Michael's, my guess was Hunter). THAT'D be a cliff-hanger for next season. But they really left this season with so much to follow up on next year. Wonderful stuff.

I can't believe how much went down this episode, and now we've all got nothing for what will seem like forever. It really needs a rewatch for me to capture it all. I will miss Toby.

Yeah, me too. However that moment was so real. Michael is so desperate for love. He wanted to tell her off but couldn't bring himself to do it. I loved the line "you cheated on me....even when I asked you not to?" (not exact).

It was painful to see what Michael had to go through in this episode.

Absolutely loved Kevin in this episode. The great part about it was that he was just normal Kevin. We were forced to look at him in another light. It worked.

I know there was a whole lot of, you know, plot going on in this episode but let's fact it, I'm not going to be able to really add anything to the conversation on those topics. This is all I have.

1. Was that Ashton Kutcher slumming it on a Nikon commercial?

2. Is the spinoff Toby's to lose? They don't just give out that cushy nbc.com slot to anybody.

Is it me, or did anyone notice Ed Helms in the episode before there were only 10 minutes left? There were so many great parts, but seeing Mose run is always hilarious. Amy Ryan, I thought, was terrific. Line of the night (paraphrasing, when Holly told Michael about Andy having proposed to another employee), "That would be Angela...although it could be Oscar..."

And there was so very little Stanley, too. I guess he got his spotlight, as it were, a few episodes ago.

I'd like to see Toby become Michael's next supervisor. It only seems fitting.

The universal shock and awe when Toby raised his voice was awesome. Even I didn't know he had it in him.

Speaking of raising voices, it was nice to see Jim put up a pro-active front and let Ryan know just how he feels about his job. Ryan certainly got his just deserts.

Kevin IS going to tap that....and she's gonna love it

Too bad that Jim and Pam didn't get their traditional cliffhanger ending, but we did get some movement in that regard.

I can't wait until September!!!

Loved it. Loveditloveditlovedit.

Holly is going to bring such an awesome new dynamic to Dunder-Mifflin next year.

Michael was ON FIRE in this episode. I know the complaint is usually that there's too much, but when his bits are this good, I feel like there can never be too much.

I only had two negatives:

-I found myself kinda pissed at Pam at the end for being disappointed that Jim didn't propose. If she really knew him and felt he was planning to do it, she would know that there was no way we would pull the trigger after getting upstaged by Andy. The moment is coming, just be patient! Sheesh!

-They Ryan/Jim storyline seemed hastily resolved, but it was hastily thrown in after the strike, so there ya go. I really thought Jim's phone call was going to go somewhere. Maybe it still will.

Well they do now have to find a new person to take Ryan's place. Should be interesting.

The Kevin stuff ruled this episode for me. I couldn't stop laughing.

There's an ad, and it's not as cool as being on YouTube, but NBC has the vid on their site.

God I hope not. Another person with an ax to grind against Scranton and Jim? I'll pass. Give me a new person who has no idea what the Scranton office is all about. The first initial interaction with Michael, Dwight, et. al. will be priceless.

I was feeling really sour about this episode until the very last scene. Phyllis' discovery mostly changed that. I still don't like how the Jim/Pam and Michael stories played out. I hope that non-existent proposal doesn't work against PB&J's relationship, and I really wanted to see Michael end up with the new HR girl.

Best case scenario, in my mind, is that (FANTASY BOOKING AHEAD) during an obligatory fight (while Pam's in NY, no doubt), Jim explains to Pam that he was going to propose that night, but Andy jumped in. And second, that Michael and Holly do the slow burn for a while, before eventually ending up together.

If you haven't already, read the chat they did at http://blog.nbc.com/theoffice/ . Some interesting things, including Michael Scott's political leanings, and what the words to "Beers in Heaven" and "Total Eclipse of the Fart" are.

Some great deleted scenes at the website too (sorry, Canada), including the build-up to Dwight, Meredith, and the badger.

Re: the spinoff

Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
In the chat, they say this: "Toby has left Dunder Mifflin and is going to Costa Rica. If they want to go down there and film on the beach, that's fine with me." That's not definitive either way. Toby in Costa Rica seems unlikely, but they could easily get him back in the states somewhere, where he takes up a new job. Some rumors are going around that the spinoff is going to be about Cousin Mose, though.

One of the TV gossip sites said a few weeks ago the spinoff would be with

Andy, which would fit the final scene of the season/ if/when he finds out.

I thought this was a definite improvement over the pilot. It sets the proper tone, with over-the-top criminals that are eventually going to be too much for the cops alone to handle.
