A truly great episode, IMO, chock full of funny lines, a more determined Dwight, the return of Roy, a hilarious auction, a David Wallace cameo, and some more Michael/Holly discomfort. 5 seconds after I saw David Wallace enter stage right, I had....a feeling. The auction turned out to be hilarious, though I would have totally paid at least $5 for Kevin to do my taxes.

If you paid Kevin to do your taxes, you'd end up paying a lot more than $5 to the IRS after you get audited.

Great episode.

The last person to mess with him disappeared. His name was Creed Bratton.

"Monotheism".

That was probably my favorite Dwight character detail. Completely believable too, based on the character they've set up for him.

Ouch - damn good point. The "I'm not that guy" line was pretty interesting though. When he was talking about Pam loving the city life, where will this leave them when she is done with art school? Will he move out there with her? Clearly he is not that (city) guy, and she may be moving on to bigger things while he is stuck there in Scranton.

I loved Ryan's ducking down when David entered the auction. Andy's "Well, I could use a hug and unless you're going to give me one here..." was golden too.

I loved the list of 10 Springsteen songs that Michael gave to Darryl:

"Five were Huey Lewis, one was Tracy Chapman's 'Fast Car', and another was 'Short People'".

That (and the line in the title of this thread) made me have to pause the DVR I was laughing so hard.

This was one of the best Michael episodes is a LONG. TIME. Carell was on!

I think Creed had two lines and they may have been his best ever!

His Second Life character was a guitar-playing sportswriter in Philadelphia, so I think he could be the big city guy. I think it's more a worry about him and her growing apart.

Yeah, the "that guy" comment was that he wasn't a possessive and/or super-jealous boyfriend who won't let his girlfriend have fun on her own (hi, Roy!), not that he wasn't a big city guy.

What about the cameraman who gets into the passenger seat with Jim Halpert who's been drinking? That's dedication to your job....


This show just entertains me so much....no one single moment tonight, just lots of little ones.

Mistaking Bruce Springsteen and Huey Lewis is just soooo Michael Scott.
As is promising something he can't deliver, like in Season 2 where his big surprise promised to his staff turns out to be ....nothing.

They were singing songs from the Wizard of Oz, which the whole episode was a homage of sorts to. I liked how they were subtly laying the theme in (starting with JD listening to Toto)
