Overall, I didn't think the episode was as strong as the first two of the season, but I guess that I just don't find Jan (and the way she treats Michael) entertaining. The last 5 minutes, though, totally came through, and my son and I both new exactly what Michael was going to do once Jan said, "Don't date Holly." Jim and Pam leaving each other those messages was great, and there were some great lines sprinkled in though.

Poor Stanley....his nipples hurt too!

The storyline with Jan has been cruel, but funny at times. Her rendition of Son of A Preacher Man was good, though. I am glad Michael is finally growing a set.

My wife and I are trying to think of a name for our baby that arrives in January. It's safe to say Astird is crossed off the list!

Dwight is starting to get a little too over the top. As much as I hate to say it, he is starting to annoy me more than amuse me. The stroller stuff was a bit much. I assume Michael will get stuck with the bill of $1,200 to buy a new one?

Absolutely loved this episode, the strongest of the year so far. Which is saying a lot considering how much of a home run Weight Loss was; but this episode had the right mix of gut-busting hilarity and "awwww" moments.

I guess I love over-the-top, because Dwight KILLED me tonight. I missed a few lines because "the bumper test" had me bent over I was laughing so hard. And really, it's in character for Dwight. The man whose great dinner party consists of giving a house a thorough inspection, who doesn't tip people for things he could do himself, is obviously going to have to check the worth of a 1200-dollar stroller. And it was good.

Creed!! Can anything more be said about this man? And Stanley's talking head about pregnant women is the best thing he has done on this show. That was fantastic.

Yes, Michael, Jan was in the terminal stages of pregnancy.

I was initially a little scared that Michael's overboard "insult Holly to make Jan feel nice" bit was going to have gone too far and end up actually putting off Holly, so I'm glad that it didn't. So if we have Jam/PB&J and Dwangela, is this Michael/Holly pair Molly?

I kind of wanted a payoff to the stroller. Did it pass the test? Is it a wreck? It looked pretty good during the bumper test.

It's really something how they can add significant members to the cast and have them fit it perfectly. Frist Karen and Andy, and now Holly. I can't say enough good things about Holly. It's like she's so endearing that she makes Michael endearing.

I noticed at the end of the episode, when Jan drove away the stroller (and I'm pretty sure it was the $1200 one, not the one the office got her) was still on the sidewalk behind Michael. I wasn't quite sure what to make of that. It looked like it was in fine condition, and nothing was said about it.

If there's one thing childbirth class hasn't taught me but should have, babies are like a buttered watermelon. My wife made me to promise not to use any Michael Scott techniques during my coaching. But then she was very curious which brand of stroller Jan bought that was worth $1200.

Loved this episode. So many funny and tender moments. Many lol moments for me. Hope this is the last of JaMichael.

AND it was still there during Jim's walk to his car, which made it hilar times two. (You could tell it was the gift one by the bow that was still on it.)

They seem to try for a lot of combo funny/poignant stuff ("babydaddy" discussion) which I find kinda hit and miss, but it *was* great seeing the Michael/Darryl relationship where Darryl ISN'T just messing with Mike.

Funniest moments for me were Holly telling Jan the baby was making a sales call - and then, that the baby was on a coffee break. This of course was right after seeing Jan using the wrapping paper as a bedsheet, which was my runner-up.

I laughed so hard at Dwight asking Jim who "Sarah Kayacomesin" was.

And also, suggesting that perhaps "baby as president" would be a better screenplay than real-life situations.

So-so episode that produced this gem of a Michael quote:

Ok, that makes a lot more sense. I only caught it briefly the first time, and apparently didn't see it at all the second time, so I didn't notice the bow.

What an awesome episode. Worth it for the first two minutes alone (Dwight giving birth, Jim with the chalkboard, Dwight admitting to performing his own circumsision, marking the baby with a sharpie).

That is one tough-ass stroller. The watermelon didn't even break or explode during the tests.

Andrew apperently never learned the lesson I did at work about guessing the wrong baby picture. That screwup with Angela & Phyllis's pics actually did happen once between two co-workers dating; not a pretty sight.

Phyllis... poor, poor Phyllis does as good a job with the party planning as she can and she still gets chewed out by Michael. Michael innteruping her interview and telling her to "PUMP IT!" was both cruel and hilarious at the same time.

Holly talking about the baby's sales call was great. The talk about the 'tub birth'- not so much, though Creed comparing it to Omaha Beach made up for it.

Overall, great ep. The best of the season, IMO. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to quote Dwight:

PLAYTIME...IS...OVER!!

Loved Darryl's quick but efficiently funny segment. "You wanna hold me, Michael?"

Yeah, the writers are doing a great job of spreading the 'money lines' around to several characters.

The 'Omaha beach' line was great. I haven't laughed so hard at Creed since 'swing low, sweet chariot'.

Micheal/Holly is the 'BAWWWWW' thing this Season.

I thought Micheal stood up to Jan LAST season. Is there a buildup here?

Loved this show! Jason Isaacs was incredible on Brotherhood (which never got a proper finale) so I was really looking forward to it. The pilot did not disappoint in the slightest.
