In the interest of fairness, some friends hadn't seen last week's Office yet so we rewatched it. It was much funnier the second time. Maybe it was me, I had a bug up my ass or something. Anyway, I'm flip-flopping on last week's episode.

I really liked Jim's presentation that Ryan was supposed to give. The Dr. No/Dr. Evil costume won big points with me. The two main plots with Jim having to step into Ryan's shoes (not literally, tiny feet) to give the Sabre Pyramid presentation while Toby gave the self-defense class brought to mind how if Michael Scott were around, he'd somehow have done both himself. Not having Michael forces others to do what naturally would have been all Michael. But both Jim and Toby were funny.

I would have expected Dwight to do the presentation himself since he's such an established public speaker, but I like Jim being completely subordinate to Dwight and having to make up for using his own cell phone to call Pam instead of the Arrowhead right in the middle of the Sabre Store.

Lots of good one liners:

"Bloggers are gross. Bloggers are obese. Bloggers have halitosis. You're gonna love 'em." - Dwight

"As soon as [Dwight] messes up, I swoop in like a sexual predator." - Packer

"I haven't had so much fun since seeing Zooee Des Channel at the Coacharella music festival." - Erin

"Now, if your attacker is willing to defile a corpse, you better stop playing dead right away and just make it known that you're alive." - Toby

"I think I see the imprint of a ring pop!" - Darryl

"Where were you when the girls came?" - Andy

Second week in a row, not nearly enough Florida Stanley.

Just a few thoughts...

- I couldn't help but think, during Toby's presentation, what Michael's reaction would be to much of what he was saying and how he was cowering to Kelly during their "fight."

- I was surprised they didn't follow-up more on the Cathy-Jim situation from last episode. In fact, I was surprised Jim would even get himself caught standing next to her when Dwight was explaining things to the workers before the Sabre episode.

- I guess I didn't realize Sabre was a big enough company to not only have their own version of the iPad but their own phone as well (all triangles, of course). I knew they were a big printer company, but it feels like a leap to battle the Verizons and Apples of the world.

Little of Florida Stanley, but his one big moment (taking a pizza slice out of his pyramid bag) was pure gold.

Obligatory "wow, how hot was Hipster Erin?" comment

"Come back next year when you have your baby" was not only hilarious, it may be pound-for-pound (no pun intended) the single meanest line ever delivered on the show.

I think that's kind of the point --- Sabre is clearly out of its depth here, given the silliness of the pyramid/arrowhead design.

The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball

If the Arrowheads have a three way rotating screen, depending on the orientation of the device, it's a potential Iphone killer.

Pam's line about the bully coming back was hilarious, best line of the night.

I am liking all of the Florida stuff way more than the Scranton stuff. I'd watch ashow with that cast.

The Jim/Cathy stuff was included in a deleted scene. BONUS, it includes Stanley claiming to be related to TWO famous people.

I have a feeling we'll be repeating this statement for years.

I caught this movie with my date last night, and I was pleasently surprized by it. There were too many of those schmaltzy "poignant speech" moments, but all in all, it was a good time out. I find it kind of funny, though...
