Pam and Dwight stuck in an elevator is enough plot for a full episode. Michael hiring his deadbeat nephew as an intern is enough plot for a full episode. Cram them both into one, however, and it felt like both stories got the big short-shrift.

I was going to start this thread and then... I didn't.

The second act conference room scene ending with the spanking was vintage Office. Don't Don't Bother Luke. "That [God] argument is tight!" "I'm just saying, why does God get to do something that I don't." (That line is instantly immortal to me.)

Gabe is dating Erin! Now, I need anger management classes.

"We need to establish a pee corner!"

"I love cinema. My favorite films are Citizen Kane and Boondock Saints." I hate Luke too.

Everything Creed said was gold.

T-minus 21 episodes until the End of Carell.

I turned it off right after the lip-sync. I can't do it anymore. The humor seems way too forced. I don't care about any of the characters anymore. I'm just done. Thank God there's still 30 Rock and Community.

The only redeeming factor of this particular show was Pam's hotness. She just looked super-smokin' in this episode.

I kind of wanted to, but I'm glad I stuck around. Seemed like a return to simpler and better days, plotwise, after such a disquieting beginning. Michael has done a stupid thing but at least it's confined to the realm of the office and is a relatable workplace kind of thing. Luke was nicely drawn, up there with the high schoolers from Community last year. Plus I really like Erin and I really like Gabe so I like that whole deal.

I did think the opening was a bit much, but the rest of the episode was solid. I don't care about Jim and Pam much anymore, but Pam does get hotter each season, so it's a wash.
Favorite exchange:
"I love him"
"Oh God. How far has it gone?"

King of Keith, you will be missed. I guess.

I loathed Gabe last season. That said, I think the Erin story is the perfect thing to do use him for. Between that and the height jokes, I was finally sold on him.

I really don't get the hate for the opening. It was cute.

I'd forgotten Erin/Andy broke up, love that her & Gabe's relationship is based on sexual harassment. About time the show got a new opener, other than adding Helms it's been the same since day 1.

This thread just got Pam'd. (They don't call me the Bart Simpson of The W for nothing.)

A fairly lackluster debut, saved by a tremendous last five minutes, especially lackluster when you think to the finale of last season. Abel being alive is a relief, and I am glad they didn't drag that out too long.
