Not a bad episode, but not great either.

The irony in place for Dwight to show his devotion to his employer by not even leaving his desk long enough to pee (anytime Dwight wizzes into an empty beverage container, hilarity ensues), versus a 19+ minute hiatus to engage in relations with an engaged co-worker is pretty great.

Besides the Battlestar Galactica conversation between Jim and Andy, nothing all that funny for me.

Oops a daisy - can somebody fix my icon?

The evil look when he said "Maybe I am unethical" was awesome.
And BSG was great too. "There were Klingons and wookies."

"The tall kid got engaged" and Meredith slinging it for discounted paper and steak.

The Battlestar Gallactica thing, and all of the other little stuff thrown in, just another funny episode.

Let's nitpick the writers kids!

- When Ryan said that he hooked up with a JoAnna lookalike from Survivor 6, are you sure he didn't mean Jenna? Not that a healthy, mid 30s, african-american fitness instructor ISN'T something to brag about, but I'm pretty sure that Ryan was going for the "hot girl" story there.

- Also, didn't Michael just land the Hammermill account only two years ago? Although I can see her whoring herself out for steak alone.

Edit: Too many commas. (Who gives a fuck about an oxford comma...)

The little quip that Dwight made in the session about a woman being with a much more powerful man was great.

Yes, the Galactica bit was the highlight, but there were other subtle parts that I really enjoyed too. The "work lunch" was great, especially Holly just shaking her head when Michael WOULD NOT stop talking about the chastity belt.

No, not a chastity belt, but a thing with spikes, and a lock, made of metal I think...

I genuinely felt bad for Holly when she found that her HR boss was horrifically unethical as well. God bless her for trying to do her job well.

"Hired guy!" *fist bump*

BSG - it's practically a shot-for-shot remake of the original, you know.

The group lunch at the end was beautiful. Phyllis & Stanley are awesome.

I guess I could've noted last night that I thought this was one of the better Office episodes that have been made. The state of Dunder Mifflin's human resources department alone is more rich and continuity filled than most television shows overall.

- You can totally see how Toby got to the point that he was at near the end. He was probably an ethical go-getter in the beginning, but somewhere along the line he ended up being quite unethical himself, wasting time with his bouncy ball game and storing away complaints into a file where they were never reported. The first time he probably tried to relay some of these ethical complaints/decisions he was probably curbstomped by Kendall as well.

- Kendall, the corporate HR manager, is also a thorn to David Wallace (per David Wallace.) Given his (Kendall's) lack of caring when it comes to the ridiculous things that happen in most of his branches (including Utica and that branch with that douchebag Regional Mgr we met in New York), I'm not surprised that a pretty good overall person like Wallace dislikes Kendall's laissez faire approach.

- Michael Scott, to his own right, probably dislikes Kendall as well, but for entirely different reasons. Going all the way back to season one, Mr. Brown was dispatched (presumably by Kendall) just to "get the signatures." That's probably why Michael got away with signing the document "Daffy Duck." Nobody ever read it.

No, this actually makes sense because if I remember correctly JoAnna would be Ryan's type. I think he actually said in one episode that he 'liked black girls'. Remember, he has history with Stanley's daughter!

I could be wrong, but I think what you're remembering is a promo in which Ryan vaguely recalled dating a black girl while in Scranton (he was, of course, referring to Kelly).

A little late to the party, but I finally got to see it thanks to Hulu. Good episode, not as funny as the season permire, but that's a hard one to top.

- The office finding out about Jim & Pam's engagement was a great opener. That said, I found the total lack of Pam afterward to be dissapointing.

- Who knew Meredith was such a freak? And for Outback, too ("that's exchange of goods. -exchange of STEAK. Have you ever have sirloin steak, honey?")

- Andrew's question about bread, Dwight's reply, and Angela facial look was a great scene. Plus, Angela reporting Oscar to the INS was evil.

- I know Mike likes Holly, but he has a dick way of showing it. First, he rips up the tickets in the season opener. And then he tosses out her salad and has her split the lunch bill at the restaurant- wherein he gets two lobsters for himself whils she just gets another salad. Now, that's just gangsta.

-The battlestar conversation between Jim & Andrew to tweek Dwight was awesome. I love it when Jim drives Dwight to the brink of insanity.

- I did like the end though, where Mike forces the office to finish the seminar. I like it when Mike does use his bossy side; it shows that he can be in charge,even with all of his shortcomings. Plus, I think it was his way of restoring Holly's faith in ethics when she got reemed by Kendall.

Overall, good ep. But I can't wait to see more Pam and Toby.

That's why I said "capriciously". Maybe the Island / Jacob didn't consider Naomi an innocent. Maybe that killing was deemed necessary for the Island's defence.That's why I said "interesting".
