It's a crime to let this episode go without a thread.

The Michael Scott Paper Company is such a golden storyline. It’s a shame that it won’t last (evidenced by, if nothing else, the return to the Dunder Mifflin title sequence).

Michael vs Dwight just kept on picking up steam throughout. Dwight changing from long sleeve white dress shirt to his (spicy dijon?) mustard dress shirt in mid-stride floored me. The whole thing produced a treasure chest of quotables. Strangely, this was my favorite:

DS: I broke the truce.

MS: On purpose?

A great episode to watch last night. Loved how Pam, even without hearing the phone calls directly, was able to clue Michael in on what Dwight was talking about with her notepad ("He talking about you"). BTW, she definitely should wear more pantsuits, they look so hot on her. The tit-for-tat between Michael and Dwight was awesome, especially the bits about the meatball parm and the color-coded rolodex. Jim's 'breakdown' on poor Andy was funny was well. And how do you not love the Michael Scott Paper Company rally cry? Just great stuff all around.

This episode finally got me cheering for Michael again.

It's been so long since I've wanted to root for him, and last night's show did it.

"'Gay son' was in green. Green means 'go', so 'go ahead and don't say it.'"

That might be one of my favorite lines of the season.

Vintage Michael Scott!

All this while I've wondered if Dwight's blind loyalty to Michael was actually to the individual or to the boss position. Then seeing how he was praised by Charles and then squealed on Michael really painted him as the ultimately loyal employee above ultimately loyal friend. All of which are of course below ultimately loyal boyfriend.

I don't know, what has Michael ever done to deserve Dwight's loyalty? As he showed us, Michael's rolodex card for him just says "Tall. Beets." I choose to see it as him seeing what it's really like when a boss has your back, rather than how it was under Michael.

Of course that opinion will be hard to explain when Michael's back in charge and Dwight goes acting exactly the same way around him, but I'm not going to let that stop me. :-)

Rewatching that scene to get the wording right, I laughed once again at Michael bating Dwight over the phone, purposely mangling Dwight's quote about paper re: manure.

30 Rock completed a perfect quad-fecta of Christmas episodes on NBC Thursday night. Julianne Moore looked great, but man, if I never hear another fake Hollywoodized Boston accent, I'll be a happy guy.
