Some good moments in this one.

I loved the rundown of the 'Five Families', and the meeting with Andy and Kevin.

The Phyllis/Michael conversation about her friend was really great.

The best moment might have been the, "Oscar Meyer ... weiner lover" line though.

The fact that Jim is planning on proposing to Pam is a little scary, because it could take the show down a road I'm not ready for ... then again his shoe untied bit was pretty fun.

My one complaint, I need more Stanley and Toby.

Classic Kevin tonight.

Favorite Michael moment: calling the "hot redhead." Phone order + planned Dwight pickup = awesome, and his casual nature of the request was great. The most vintage Michael we've seen in awhile.

They almost had me with PB&J at the end. Flawless victory.

They're going to milk that for a LONG time - and it'll finally happen when no one expects it. Just a great set up.

Nah....they'll have a cliffhanger ending, after Jim proposes. I bet ya.

Good episode. I liked it. When did Michael split up with Jan?

Yes, I loved the bit with the "hot redhead".

"Sir, you have to have come to the restuarant to order"
"I will have someone pick it up for me".

That was pretty good.

Jim is thinking engagement WAY too soon. And not in a "the writers are speeding things up unnaturally" kind of way, either. Jim totally would buy a ring one week in.

I found this episode to be really weak, but that often happens on Michael-centric episodes.



It is the policy of the documentary crew to remain true observers and not interfere with its subjects.

You gotta root for poor Kevin...atta boy big guy! Andy's victory break dance was nice too.

The "American Pie" end cap was a nice touch too.

Michael Scott on blind dates is one of the more derivative things they've done, compared to David Brent looking for love in the Christmas special ("who are ya, what's yer name?"), but huge laughs are huge laughs wherever they come from. Michael's call to Wendy's was so wonderful. It was great to see him being take-charge irrational and oblivious instead of on his heels like he has been as of late. And Andy is just a great man. But Jim buying the ring a week after they started dating is just some real sissified stuff.

For me, the highlight was Michael asking Phyllis if her friend "could share a rowboat". Poor Phyllis getting dumped on is always good for a couple of laughs. I also liked the 'Five Families' and had a feel-good moment when Kevin finally got to 'win one' as he stated in the interview after the meeting.

And I must add, Michael has really good taste in women on brouchores. The lady on page 85 is hot! Too bad she's dead, but man, was Dwight quick and dilligent in finding her info... and a bit too happy in reporting her death.

I don't know that Jim buying the ring is that sissified. I mean, they haven't been dating that long, but he's been in love with the girl for years. It's not like she's still a mystery to him, except perhaps in the ways that all women remain mysteries to their boyfriends/husbands. I actually thought it was pretty romantic...although that might make me a sissy, I guess.

Pretty good episode, if not quite as good as last week's dinner party. I like Michael's character, but you need Dwight, Jim and Pam to balance him more, and this was a little too much pure Michael for me.

I don't know if they've done this before and I just never noticed it, but I thought it was really funny how every employee's computer was either not being used, with nothing open on the desktop, or was being used to play solitaire. Wise use of resources, Dunder Mifflin!

Another awesome episode. You gotta love that throwaway jokes (Kevin's foot disease and sweating) turned into a major plot point, heh. The highlight was definitely "Oscar Meyer Weiner Lover".

But again, that's something they've established Jim as being. He noticed the type of yogurt she was eating, so much so that he knew the expiration date on it. Pam's his "The One" and he's in love with her that much.

Creed was the MVP for me again. I don't know what's better : That he feels he needs three chairs or that he didn't say why.

I know, and I have generally found Jim and Pam pretty cool and funny since they've been together, which was something I was skeptical about going in. But I still thought that this was pretty darn cloying. Temporary bathos. Girls are gross!!!
