Season five's finale -- I was wondering what the twist at the end was going to be this year since prior seasons all led up to something we were expecting, but that was just out of left field to me. But wow, I wasn't *expecting* that. Nicely done.

Michael's dickishness to AJ was pretty good and I'm proud of him for holding back on spilling it to Holly about how he felt. This is the same guy that waited a whole 10 seconds to let the entire company know that he had sex with Jan. I don't know if maturity is the right word, especially after the skit.

And screw Buffalo - bunch of a-holes.

Plenty of things to look forward to next season: Andy/Erin, Dwight/Angela redux?, Bob Vance of Vance Refrideration/new secretary. Would one episode devoted to an HR retreat be too much to ask? That would be gold.

The thought first popped into my head when the x-ray lady asked Pam if she was pregnant, among other questions. So I wasn't completely surprised I guess.

Really?

Just kidding. The two foot four Angela dominated and was named MVP.

Very good finale, and a great starting point for next season. Michael and Holly are so sweet together, and Charles is such an ass.

David Wallace should absolutely know better than to tell Michael anything, ever.

They were showing the Scranton volleyball team when Me and the little lady both busted up laughing at the exact same time. I paused the DVR and asked what SHE was laughing about, and she had the same response as I.

Cowboy Boots.


Great show, How sad was Michael last night? Just when you want to write him off as a complete ass, the last few shows remind you of why you love the branch to begin with.

Steve Carell was great in the episode, especially as he slowly realized he couldn't he with Holly, but couldn't quite admit it.

Pam being pregnant? That's Jumping the Shark 101, so we shall see. Having them as a couple is fine when they are just part of the show, but hopefully her pregnancy doesn't BECOME the show.

A Karen cameo would have totally kicked ass in this episode.

I know, right? I actually thought I saw her playing volleyball with the purple team in the first scene of the picnic, but it was not to be.

I thought this was a great season ender and me and the Mrs. loved Pam being pregnant because we always have a fear they will break them up. Great work by all the cast and I would KILL to see the HR picnic.

Maybe Office's goal is to take all the shark-jump tropes and make them work, since they've played with fire and used it to light fireworks so far. Maybe they went to volleyball camp most summahs.

Not gonna start a new thread cuz lazy and will be chastised for it but every musician scene in 30 Rock was amazing too.

What a terrible example you're setting! Plus, wasn't this the season finale, so you won't really have good reason to start a 30 Rock thread for ... several weeks if you don't do it now?

"Pleased to meet!" Damn you 30 Rock for making me like Adam Levine!

I watched all of the Office without realizing it was the finale. That's how out of it I've been lately. Not knowing actually made the episode better, though, since I wasn't waiting for THE SHOCKING ENDING.

Michael and Holly's recreation of the Slumdog torture scene was ridiculously funny.

Another great episode. The Michael and Holly SlumDunder Mifflinaire skit was possibly the most awesomely awkward thing they've ever done. I could just imagine being one of those several dozen people sitting out in the crowd watching them go on and on and on for Lord knows how long. My fiancee won't watch Parks & Recreation with me anymore because of how painfully awkward it is; thank goodness for her sake she was asleep when I was watching The Office this week.

This is going to sound crazy but, I didn't realize someone was wearing cowboy boots until just now when I read your post. I totally remember seeing the boots in my periphery, but I have no clue who it was! I've already deleted the episode off my DVR, so would somebody care to inform me who? My guess would be either Creed or Dwight's friend.

Ha! That must be why I didn't pick it up. The rest of her outfit was so over-the-top there was too much for my little brain to focus on.

In my case my brain was working on unfocusing my eyes as much as possible.

On the one hand, I firmly believe it's within Michael's character/the Office universe to die alone, on the other I was raised on Disney movies and Holly is adorable and perfect for him since he and Ryan will never act on their attractions to each other.
