By now, Michael, Jim and Pam are Ol' Faithful. So reliable. This episode was OWNED by the supporting cast, who got all the best lines.

Kevin: "I might have extra. It depends on how many I eat."

Creed's entire aside about scuba. "If I can't scuba, what has any of this been for?"

Stanley's shocking revelation of an affair.

My favorite: Andy's utter confusion about whether the rumors are true that he's gay. "Michael, am I gay?!" That was the biggest LOL moment for me, along with the line about "the coincidences." Oh, and Jim telling him to sleep with a woman and then a man to compare and the sound Ed Helms made. Honestly, who was in a bigger, more popular and profitable movie this past summer than Ed Helms (and I don't mean The Goods).

Oh and Dwight to the summer interns: "One of you will be wildly successful in business, one of you will do all right, one of you will be a great mother."

"Michael, you told people I use store bought compost, even though I showed you where my compost comes from."

Six years in, the supporting cast of The Office are worth a zillion Dundees.

I really need more Stanley as a character on this show. Everything he touches is gold. However, I nearly did a spit take when Michael fielded the call from Stanley's wife. That was just brilliant.

They really got back to basics with this episode.

It's really not worth starting a thread, but I will say that the episode really felt like the first thirty minutes of a Dodgeballesque film.

Office is a borderline cartoon at this point. That's not even really an full insult towards the show because the acting is still good, and in the end there's still very funny lines. However, we're opening another fall showing that Michael Scott has fully regressed into Homer Simpson and that's what got the show clogged up most of last season. I feel like there's so many good basic office based stories that we can have a somewhat smart Michael and also don't have to have things like tertiary characters having affairs.

Andy sincerely wondering if he's gay and the rumor that Kevin had a smaller person inside him was prepost. Andy's enthusiasm for tea, OTOH, excellent. The episode had a dearth of Ryan.

From "men's butts" to talking about Pam's growing breasts, Kevin owned ... Kevin owned.

    "Michael, you told people I use store bought compost, even though I showed you where my compost comes from."

He actually said "manure". I don't even want to know where Dwight gets his manure (I'm thinking some/most of it may come from Dwight & Mose).

The smaller-person-inside-Kevin rumor had me rolling.

The Office has definitely come to incorporate more elements of slapstick and screwball, but I seriously don't mind as long as they're well executed - which in my opinion, they totally were. Andy wondering if he's gay (at least as presented on the episode) might be a shade preposterous, but it was also really funny to me.

It's good to see that Angela hasn't lost her edge. Even after spending last season sleeping with her finance as well as her ex-boyfriend unbeknownst to the other, she can still effectively chastise Pam for mothering a bastard.

Of all the rumors, Kelly's was my favorite.

Kelly (receptionist): 'I'm so glad you're eating again!'
Kelly Kapur: (mouth full of food) 'Me too!'

100% agreed. I had to pause the episode (DVRed it) because I was laughing so hard. Just perfect execution.

This being said, I also kinda agree with SSS. I get tired of Michael being just 100% buffoon, although I think it was saved a bit by him trying so hard to get the Stanley rumor debunked by starting the other rumors. There is heart beneath the buffoonery at least.

EDIT- To also talk about Community here, I thought it was a pretty great first episode. Even with knowing where everything is going, if you have good acting, you can often forgive the predictable nature. That was my thought here, with all the actors doing a fantastic job to draw me in.

Count me in the minority, but I thought this show was absolute shite. Only two or three funny moments (and one of those were the interns at the end). It just fell short for me.

"WHAT UP CYNTHIA?" was one of biggest laughs I've had from this show in many an episode. The set-up, execution, and follow-through on that moment was flawless.

This caught me off guard. I thought the show was debuting next week. Wow.

Here's hoping Global Canada's website is streaming the episode.

Well at least things are clearing up a bit. So those six got off the island but many didn't. Why is still up in the air. But it seems finding the island is damn tricky even if you kinda know where it is.
