C'mon, we gotta talk about this, and I don't mean as an aside in a Parks & Rec thread.

This episode was GRRRRRREAT, super romantic, smile inducing, and totally worth waiting a month for it.

The sprinklers made the proposal perfect (and also answered the question I kept shouting at the TV, which was double perfect).

The setup for Michael leaving was actually pretty good, I thought.

An episode so jam packed they had no time for opening credits!!

Steve Carrell must be a pretty good director!

Even though I knew pretty early on Michael was leaving a message on an answering machine, it still made me laugh when we got the reveal.

Trade up subplot - started strong and then...

Magic beans subplot - eh (although the closing credits bit was great, and reflects just how much money Jim is willing to spend on these schemes)

Dallas game subplot - money

Of COURSE Holly has a neon guy.

Jennifer Weiner reference!! (Three people know why that's funny to me)

That is all (for now). We can now all experience the fear of Will Ferrell to come, but after this episode I need to be more optimstic!

The "I look forward to speaking" line had me rolling.

This really felt like a season 3 episode.

I think Will will (that's awkward) be great.

I was hoping someone would start a thread for this, I wasn't going to do it; who am I, James Franco?



This whole episode was just amazing. The beans subplot wasn't a home run, but it was a solid double and a nice payoff to the Dwight Trader bit, which got to show off everyone's stuff.

Of course the real meat was Michael/Holly. I actually missed it yesterday but got about 3 texts from people who did, and they were pretty moved. I like the comparison to Pam and Jim, bringing up the gas station. Everyone not getting it made sense, because it was just a perfect PB&J thing, after everything they'd been through.

So the execution of the Michael's proposal was just as good (clearly he's no longer that hard up with money, considering the ring and Pam's reaction to it), so well-done, and made even more so by the typical Michael beginnings - Pam rushing outside to stop Michael from setting the parking lot ablaze with love was fantastic. It was a fitting start to the end of Michael Scott. How great and fitting is it that the two happiest days of his life are the day Toby left (!) and the day Holly arrived? He's finally found what he's been working for this whole time - a wife to start a family with, and judging by the looks of everyone when he said he was leaving, the love and respect of his office family. It's touching.

And that's Dallas.

This show has completely lost me. This used to be my favorite show and I used to tell anyone who would listen to watch it. I still enjoy some of the side interactions, and thought Daryl's sympathy card from a week or two ago was just a great little bit, but overall I find myself cringing through these episodes.

I guess if you've stuck with the show this long and enjoyed the whole ride than this episode was for you. For some reason during the big proposal scene all I was thinking about was how they were going to explain away all the damage they just caused by setting off the fire alarm. Or, I could just be heartless.

I totally missed that LOST was airing on Thursday. Is that the regular time slot now? That seems.....like a bad idea. I suppose it doesn't matter WHEN they air it if its only competition is reruns...
