"I call Loser!"

Oscar's voice breaking in the break room was hilarious.

Fantastic episode. Who thinks of running someone over with a Prius at 5MPH? These writers are brilliant.

Good for Dwight and Andy. Can't believe Andy got 2(!) times out of her.

Jim continues to fail when in charge.

" go ahead! Call me a sasquatch!"

I guess this means that Angela and Dwight are unmarried. And I wonder if Andy had to lose yet another deposit on that wedding cake.

Yes, Jim continues to fail when in charge, but he DID get Dwight to clean out his weapons cache.

"....I was in FRONT of the car. My new number is 31!"

Kevin and Oscar ripping on Angela was nice too.

I really felt for David Wallace. I've had the experience of having an "inexplicably" good'll drive you to distraction.

This was a pretty good episode.
Cutting down on Micheal a little and basicly ignoring PB&J let the minor characters get in more lines. Meredith had several good lines. Besides "I got loser" there was "usually when two guys fight over me it's for who holds the video camera."

I thought the episode was just awesome. It was funny to me that they both wanted her so badly, and then once Dwight realized that she slept with Andy (two more times than I'd thought!), it was only THEN that it was over. There were so many good laughs, and I am happy that Andy broke it off. I'd rather see him and Dwight be pals (a magical anti-Jim high five).

I'm not sure which was funnier, Andy creeping up on Dwight with the Prius, or Oscar KNOWING that "the Prius is totally silent under 5MPH."

For me, the funniest line of the night was Kelly's: "I guess people have fewer choices as they get older."

I think Jim got the lines of the night when he said, "I either have to get more involved in this or take a sick day... leaving Dwight in charge, oh god" I spit up water when he said that

Even better, Oscar was very proud of Andy's plan, saying "he should win". I loved that.

Still, I'm sad that we didn't get an epic Andy meltdown at the beet farm wedding. This was begging for a sweeps/supersized episode.

It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

"He deserves the win" was easily the line of the night, followed by Meredith's "I call Loser!"

Less Michael = better show. I started watching 15 minutes in and DVRed it back to skip commercials...and the Michael parts. Although I did chuckle at him racing by the radar gun.

I can totally see an Andy/Dwight superteam forming up. Those two deserve each other.

Jim continues to fail?

Hey, Holly's coming back maybe?

    I'm fairly certain this calls for a Hallefreakinglujah!

    Greg Daniels, the big boss behind The Office, just confirmed for me exclusively the best news ever: Amy Ryan will be reprising her spectacularly popular role as Holly Flax, soul mate to Steve Carrel's Michael.

    "She will come back," says Daniels. "We haven't written it yet, but we're discussing her coming back for the season finale. We're hoping she'll be available."

    Daniels went on to say that he's "very open" to working out a more permanent Office arrangement with Ryan. "Because [Michael and Holly] have such a deep connection, I don't think she can blow in and out every so often," he explains. "It would be too hard for him as a human being. So, we're hoping to find some very significant things for them. And if we can get her to sign on for a really long period, we'll do it."

    And I repeat: Hallefreakinglujah!

I concur with the hallefreakinglujah. Even at her dorkiest, Amy Ryan as Holly brings a sweet chemistry with Michael that works like no other. I also like the fact that with her around, it seems to bring another dimension to Michael by making him more assertive and proactive about taking charge and not letting others (like David Wallace) push him around.

A nice "don't I know you?" glance between her and Stringer would RULE.

That'd be kinda funny, but would those OTHER characters even recognize each other? She didn't do much beyond working the case of the dead girls at the dock and messing around with McNulty and the kids at home. There was almost zero Bell/Barksdale shenanigans in season 2 which is the vast majority of where the character of Beatrice was fleshed out.

"I was very impressed, with the potential you see in me."

Enough said. FANTASTIC episode. Once again, every single moment and beat had some comedic value and it was gold. Poor, poor David Wallace.

Holly coming back? YES. Daniels needs to get on the horn with Amy Ryan's agent and coax a more permanent addition to the show out of them.

What I really like about this show is the subtle friendships that the Office has. I am a big fan of Oscar and kevin, especially during their interaction with Angela.

I also loved when Andy sarcastically told the office thank you, the camera makes a quick cut to Creed who says "You're welcome". Just plain awesome.

Every time I think this show can't get better, it does.

"Marriage is like that show Everybody Loves Raymond, but its not funny. 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."

My wife liked 666 Park Ave. The last 2 episodes are sitting in the DVR, so its one less thing I have to worry about eating DVR space.
