Well only 3 episodes in and we may have had the best episode of the season.
Spoiler Below: Highlight text to read
After the first half hour Angela had the supporting cast MVP all but wrapped up. Then Andy had his tour de force performance (which again underscores the "two episodes = one hour long" structure), and it became tough to choose. But going with the theme of the show, Andy AND Angela are co-MVPs heh.
Too much hilarity to name. Dwight vs the Computer is second (third?) only to Fax from Future Dwight and the Jim/Dwight impersonations. Dwight winning it was inspired, because while we would've gotten the obvious stuff from having the computer win we get more from this: reinforcement of Dwight's skills, more fuel for the Dwangela fire, and of course it let Michael have the quote of the night - "One of my salesmen beat your computer, ASSHOLE." The look on Ryan's face afterward and the way he tried to save that moment for himself was gold.
Well, with the kidnapping of the pizza boy, are there any more doubts of the Michael=child theory? That right there provides some solid proof for the 'realism' of Michael driving into the lake because he went into stubborn child mode. Why? Because we saw that mode again when, once again upset at Ryan, Michael completely overreacted to a simple situation.
Any and all doubts about how the writers are gonna handle PB&J have been answered in the past 3 episodes, but most especially in this one. "Tie goes to the girlfriend."
Highlights -All the short jokes Michael kept making to Angela. Pipsqueak was the best, as it just came from nowhere heh. -The Jim/Andy bit in the beginning, you can just see the anger management beginning to break on Andy. -"Is this why I'm in here?" says Oscar as Michael struts in wearing a shirt far gayer than Oscar himself. -Andy in general: "They say you shouldn't mix business and pleasure. Well I wonder how putt-putt companies manage." And regarding the 'thing made of ice' "I stole it." That conference call serenade was priceless. Do you think any of his friends were former members of Here Comes Treble? -The icing on the cake, Michael and Dwight mocking Ryan and yet again the fire and Ryan's lack of a sale comes up. I will never, ever tire of this.
Commenting on episodes of The Office is almost a chore for me because there is absolutely NO WAY I can mention everything I laughed at. I loved the speakerphone serenade, Darrell's ever-so-subtle come on to Kelli, Michael's continued infatuation with Ryan ("I'm so hot!"), Meredith's pelvic cast. Oh my goodness, EVERYTHING.
I even love the tiny things they do. The meeting at the beginning of the episode where everyone was watching the DVD player screen saver was just perfect. I don't know about you guys but I've definitely stared at a similar Windows screen saver for minutes and minutes on end waiting for the logo to hit the corner juuuuuust right. I actually pumped my fist in the air along with the cast when it finally hit. What a show.
After 3 plus seasons, I finally had sympathy for Dwight - crushing blow. Although it was quite generous of him to tell Andy, "You're also welcome to date Toby." Maybe its not his fault that he grows such crappy weed.
I did wonder if the regular IT guy was too busy restoring his Corvette to hook up the webcam...
"Dwight mercy killed Angelaís cat. Itís very complicated. Itís caused a lot of unpleasantness between Dwight and Angela. Who were both already prone to unpleasantness."
DunderMifflin/Sys is another contender from this show in the 'funniest thing I have ever seen' award. I was actually glad when the commercial came because I was having serious problems breathing properly. "I have become self-aware" was just the most perfect thing to say to Dwight to get him going. I love it.
The bouncing DVD box was brilliant because, like StingArmy, I've done the same thing myself. I loved how everybody was in on it and they all walked out together at the end.
My girlfriend has taken to the phrase, "Tie goes to the girlfriend," and that's my only beef with this episode.
Lloyd: When I met Mary, I got that old fashioned romantic feeling, where I'd do anything to bone her. Harry: That's a special feeling.
Unquestionably the best of the season so far, as well as the least awkward use of PB&J. 30 Rock was a masterpiece, additionally. And It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia gave us the stirring composition of Day Man. It was a wonderful night of laffs.

Last night was a very good night. It's Always Sunny should be like required viewing in our schools.
And this is a rough sketch of just the stuff we know of: -Recovering alcoholic/pill addict (known, referred to as the worst-kept secret in the beltway), had relapse less than 2 years later (unknown, but it came dangerously close to exposition)
