Nobody wants to discuss the greatness that was "Prison Mike" warning of the dementors and life in jail?
They've done a lot of "Michael doing a skit" comedy, but I don't care- they are hilarious.
Is the Stamford crew just going to quit one-by-one until Andy and Karen are left? I think we need to see the lady who brings her baby to work (whatsupwitdat?) as there is still some comic potential left there.

Andy (Ed Helm) singing The Rainbow Connection to Pam was absolutely brilliant!

The Dementor thing caught me really offguard and my girlfriend and I registered it at the same time and burst out laughing. That was excellent.

Jim/Andy/Pam was good too, but I think there was potential for more there.

Not enough Dwight in this episode for me, he's easily the most entertaining character for me at this point. Sort of reminds me of a friend from college with the volume turned way up.

As much as I think it's ridiculous that Pam and Jim don't just sit down and talk about their relationship to clear the air, I've gotta admit that the slow burn will make for some good sappy TV if/when they finally get together. But if the characters were real people and I saw them somewhere, I'd probably slap them both in the side of the head and tell them to stop being such weenie 7th graders about everything.

The throwaway beginnings have been hilarious, too. Who knew when you asked, "May I?", you were asking permission not to hold the baby, but to climb under the desk and talk for the baby. Not as great as Future Dwight, but nothing is topping that one.

And Andy looking for some tail in the office, and somehow skipping right over Meredith! She's his best shot!

I definitely don't want to go to prison now, after hearing about the gruel sandwiches and the Dementors and Ryan being the "belle of the ball". How come Toby wasn't at the meeting? Does Michael not invite him to meetings because he always ruins things?

Pam looked absolutely thrilled to being pranked by Jim and to such detail - it showed her that he still cared.....of course she looked less than thrilled to see Jim & Karen at the copier....

Big episode for Kevin - I don't remember when he has had so many lines before - prison would not be good for Kevin....

I won't miss baby lady when she quits in a few episodes....

and finally, my boss has just started watching The Office and he is stunned to see how similar he is to Michael in some areas.....I'm not

I think it was brought up one time that, since Toby works in HR and directly for corporate, that Michael doesn't consider him part of the immediate "family".

Creed with the paperclips was just wrong!!

I think I prefer Jim pranking Andy because Andy just seems dumb and gullible, not ridiculously over-the-top completely unbelievably stupid like Dwight. Nobody would ever, ever, ever fall for the Future Dwight gag, it's dumb crap like that makes me wish Dwight wasn't on the show at all. But the Andy/Pam prank was something that somebody would actually fall for.

I don't know if it's ever been mentioned on here before, but The Office's theme has got to be the best on television. It's just happy and uplifting and makes me want to dance like Snoopy does to the Charlie Brown theme.

I think Creed makes more with less lines than anyone on the show. He's like their version of Ralph Wiggum, all he needs is one line to steal the show.

That was one of the better episodes of the season. SO it was written by Gervaise and Merchant?

I know to each their own, but I cannot see how this was one of the better episodes of the season. I agree with Creed making more with less, as do all of the bit characters - Stanley, Creed, Phyllis, Meredith, and Toby, and its part of what makes the show great. While I realize that Steve Carell is the focal point of the show, and part of why The Office is what it is, things like "Prison Mike" drag on too long and cease being funny. Carell is genious, but it just seems like this season, they've given us way more of him then last season, even though Michael Scott is the epitome of "over the top"...

I was hoping Jim would ask Andy, "Why not hook up with Diane there, Sam? You know...from Cheers?"

The increased amount of Michael is probably just due to the fact that with Jim in Stanford for so much of the season, Michael has up more of the focus in the Scranton parts of the episode. Now that everyone is back in one office, things will get back to normal.

Great episode, btw. I loved the return of Michael's man-crush on Ryan, and the seemingly endless number of hilarious Jim reaction shots.

I do agree that the "Prison Michael" stuff went on too long, but everything else in the episode just cracked me up.

There seemed to be more of the weird, uncomfortable humor last night than in recent weeks, and that is what usually makes me laugh the most on this show.

I wonder if Jim's trying to hide the past "relationship" with Pam from Karen. I mean, when Karen said she wanted in on the prank against Andy, he all but brushed her off.

Very little Kelly this week. That's too bad; she's one of my favorite characters.

I gotta get the theme song to the show on my cellphone as my ringtone, STAT.

Great episode. I really liked the interaction between Michael and Toby toward the end, when Toby told Michael they were just teasing him. "Prison Mike" was great, even when he claimed he didn't get caught for his misdeeds (to which Jim, of course, corrected him).

I actually really liked this one, perhaps the best of the season. A lot of the little jokes worked, and Homer, while usually overbearing, was quite subdued for most of the episode.
