"Oscar really does fit that old stereotype of the smug, gay Mexican."

The Office has rebounded quite a bit this season, but I loved this week. Felt like a season 3 episode to me. The cold open alone with Dwight training his feet to act as hands like a chimpanzee was amazing, as was Jim's: "Thank you, hands. Nothing in the universe can do what you do."

Pitting Oscar against Michael in debate over China and foreign policy towards China was brilliant. "America should be number one. England is number two. China should be, like, 9." I loved everyone in the office teaming up with Michael to take down "Actually..." Oscar.

The B-plot of Pam and Dwight was also great. I enjoy every time Dwight moves past his cartoonish tendencies and shows he has depth and a heart, especially towards Pam, the only one in the office he really does like deep down. It's also great they underlined Pam's failures as an artist and as a salesman. Plus I liked Dwight's motion sensors and single plying the toilet paper. "Don't even get me started on how coddled the modern anus is."

The interplay between Andy and Daryl is so strong, it can carry a pointless C-plot about Andy's stupid texts.

"Megan Fox?"

Greatest moment: Dwight's foot-five to Jim after he spilled the coffee on himself.

2nd greatest moment: Stanley's "Don't tell me how to do my business!" interruption.

There really wasn't a Christmas theme but I got the feeling at the end that Dwight was playing the role of the Grinch. As he watched Pam celebrate in his rearview mirror, the thought '...the Grinch's small heart grew three sizes that day' hit me.

Looks like Holly is back next week. Wikiwikiwikiwiki what?!

He has a pretty good point:

"Extra-soft, quilted and multi-ply toilet roll made from virgin wood causes more damage than gas-guzzlers, fast food or McMansions, say campaigners"(

God, this was disappointing. I really like Aubrey Plaza and was rooting for her. Still am. This is her first starring role in a mainstream Hollywood comedy. I so so wish it weren't terrible.
