I must cry foul on The Office this week. They can't just introduce a plot point ripe with potential hilarity as Andy having a "flirty" email relationship with his cousin and just drop it cold like they did! I need more on that! The more we learn about Andy's bizarre secrets and confusions, the better.

David Wallace is always welcome. It's great to introduce a straight man who's from "the real world" and have him react to the insanity in Scranton. His facial reaction to Andy's cheese plate presentation was golden. (So was Jim's mental calculations of why Andy brought a cheese tray into the conference room.)

It didn't really occur to me until this episode that Jim really has toned down his slacking off and become responsible, what with an impending marriage and baby. He's becoming a responsible man. His reactions to Michael sabotaging and betraying him were some deft acting from John Krasinski. He didn't overplay anything because Jim never gets overly emotional unless Pam's involved, but his fuming anger was very effective.

The big winner of the episode was the Marvel Team Up of Dwight and Toby. Who knew those two would be comedy gold together? My favorite moment was Dwight talking to the camera about how Darryl and his sister look alike.

Poor Pam trying to get RSVP confirmations. Pam and Jim's wedding has been a great vehicle to remind us that everyone at Dunder Mifflin Scranton is a huge asshole.

I admit, I wanted to cheer when Jim was promoted to co-manager. That's a big and welcome change in the structure of the show.

Dwight's reaction was perfect.

Did Dwight do a David Caruso "take the (sun)glasses off when talking about a crime" at Toby's desk?

And also, I think it would've been interesting had Jim been put in charge of a different branch, then show him in charge there as well as the Scranton branch. I think we could've had a lot of interesting plots with Jim in charge of a separate branch (perhaps taking some Scranton-ites with him). Unfortunately, it sounds a bit too much like Jim being moved to Stamford a few seasons ago, as well as the Michael Scott Paper Company.

I loved how Michael simply leaned against Andy's desk and Andy immediately began incriminating himself regarding his sales numbers and concentration. Much like last week's 'am I gay or not?' kind of self-depreciation.

What I really liked was how the conversation between Michael, Jim, and David really could have gone either way. Michael is equal parts kind-hearted and selfish, and as much as he would want to keep Jim around and help out him and Pam, he's also very unwilling to give up or share his authority. So when they cut away from the phone conversation, I was genuinely unsure which direction the show was going to go in.

I assumed Toby wrote that about Jim because of his jealousy over Pam? Even though it is kinda true, I have always got the impression that Jim was still a good worker.

I like how even with all of the hair brained schemes, and whacked out ideas, sometimes Dwight gets it right. Sort of like Michael.

This show was good, but needed more Kevin.

Dwight's scream was wonderful. Just the way his head started quivering and then the bellow.

This will be fun.

I think there was an episode two years ago when Ryan was evil where he was sticking it to Jim and Toby wasn't helping with all those negative reports.

I have a whole bunch of Monk's OCD habits, so I couldn't possibly fast forward through any of the show. I MUST watch it all in its entirety.
