The IT guy (what was his name? Champ? Nick? Sport?) going off on the Dunder Mifflin crew was awesome.
Toby's mystery novel and his reaction to Jo's plot suggestion. "Write your own damn novel."
Kevin: "I'm a runner."
WOOF! From the mind of Ryan Howard, the guy who once wished his iPod could make phone calls but didn't want an iPhone.
I liked Michael signing for Pam to meet him in Meredith's van. "I strangely know exactly what you mean."
But I think what I liked the most was the tease for Holly's return, and the tacit acknowledgment that Michael - and in effect the entire show - has been in a bit of a funk for a while. Michael - and I guess I also mean Steve Carell - just seems tired and largely going through the motions.
Whether or not next year is Steve Carell's final season as rumored, I hope this break finds The Office creative and cast refreshed and galvanized when they come back in September.
"Ryan, you have a woof on line one". Nice to see Ryan's office is still in that closet.
It seems like this was less eventful than previous season finales. Yes, we had the tease of Holly's return, but that's not the same as Jim kissing Pam, Jim asking Pam out, Pam being pregnant, etc. It just seemed like a solid episode, more than a season finale. I thought for sure someone would be fired over the printer thing, or Michael would be fired for refusing to name names.
"I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ."
I didn't catch that they were in Meredith's van. I thought they were in the old Michael Scott Paper Company van.
I don't really want Holly to come back, because that might mean that Toby leaves again. He's one of my favorites,I might be in the minority on that one.
This was an alright show. It didn't really feel like a season finale, but it did go out with a lot of good quotes most of which have been quoted already. "I'm a runner" probably wins out,though. I think B.J Novak hit his scene out of the park.

Oh no, you can't blame the IT guy. He knows EVERYTHING. He's been in your hard drive. He knows what you search on the web. The IT guy is the most dangerous person in an office. Never piss off the IT guy.
I forgot Dwight buying Scranton Business Park and threatening Hank with the loss of his chair and forcing him to stand guard like Buckingham Palace.
Sorry to resurrect this one but I just now got the DVR in working order again.
This was I think the first season-ender that did not concentrate on Jim & Pam. Instead it was on Michael and his shocked, giddy stare when Jo was receptive to his Holly idea. And nice to see that through everything, Michael still has his employees' backs.
Michael's reaction to Darrell's admission of guilt when he said that the girl wasn't even cute was just awesome.
And I hope Toby doens't go away either. If any place is in need to two HR people...
Still didn't feel like a season-ender, but I'll take it.
My original intention was to start a thread talking about all of the cancelled network shows that were going to have unaired episodes burned off over the summer. After reading through this week's TV thread, I figured it would have been useful.
