John Krasinski was ON in this episode. He works so well with Rainn Wilson.
I loved his reaction to "If I'm wrong, then society made me that way" and his "Really? Nothing?" when Michael didn't say "That's what she said".
Was the Stanley plot just not funny or what?
So are we to believe the camera crew followed Toby all the way to Costa Rica??
I didn't think that Stanley's plot was intended to be funny so much as to give us something positive. Stanley's character was beginning to have very little redeeming to him. Not that he wasn't funny, but all his character ever did was bitch about something or be apathetic to everything else. This gives his character more depth. He does care about some things, and have goals. Just none of them having to do with the lunatics around him.
I cheered when Jim got down on his knees, it was indeed such a thing for him to do. Away from all the craziness.
He was great in this episode. the best part was his phone conversation with Pam that turned into the IM conversation, and making Dwight think it was about him. That was classic Jim-Dwight torture.
Loved how Phyllis told that she took over the position of head of the planning comitee. Cut to Angela and Dwight in the background with Phyllis walking by, looking at the camera with a very sly look on her face. OMG. She caught them!

By procrastinating all summer, my wife and I just watched last season's finale last week, so we were right up to speed on all the things that happened last season! I can understand some of the more subtle things we might have missed had we not just watched the finale. Yay for procrastination!
And Neil Patrick Harris should so win over Jeremy Piven. It wouldn't even have to be legen - wait for it - dary. It's should just be so.

I must say I agree with you almost completely, Zed. I think the show's downfall can be traced to this choice, specifically Estes. For all the flak Ted McGinley gets from the "Jump The Shark" types, Estes (imdb.com)
