Had to love Michael coming up to Toby and telling him to come on. When Toby asks where they are going he tells him he is taking him to bash his head in with a hammer. Toby thinks for a second, turns and looks at Ryan and Kelly's cube and listens to their absurd fighting, shrugs his sholders, and leaves with Michael.

I don't know if it was from the hiatus or what, but we laughed outloud more during this episode than any other. Everything Toby did in response to Ryan & Kelly was hilarious. And the bit with Michael and the hammer was equally good.
Dwight was the best though. I loved how the pepper spray came out of nowhere immediately after Roy first started his charge. You know Dwight was jumping for joy inside, but he kept up his stoic demeanor like a champ. I wish we got a shot of him secretly rocking out to some metal or something to celebrate. I need an animated .gif or something of Dwight taking his pepper spray, nunchucks, and throwing stars out from under his desk. The camera angle, his motions, and his facial expressions were absolutely perfect during that.
Roy's trip into the office to pick up his check was well done. Good acting, I actually felt sorry for the guy despite everything.
Ken Kennedy debuted a new finisher: Jeff Hardy fans will insist on calling it the Swanton Bomb, but it looks WAY more devastating when not performed by a 180-pound fruitcake. -Rick Scaia 06.12.2006
The fact that Michael was supposed to talk Darrell out of a raise and then asked for one himself sums his character up perfectly. And then nearly screwed it up when Jan was practically handing him the 12% raise. Perfect.
Dean! Have you been shooting dope into your scrotum? You can tell me! I'm hip!
"Now if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go backstage. I'm proud of myself, I just beat Brad Armstrong!" - Arn Anderson on WCW Saturday Night in 1992, in the classiest display I've ever seen of someone putting over an underrated mid-carder that everyone in the locker room knew deserved better than the push he got.
As much as I love "Community", I really couldn't get into this episode. Seemed like a long way to go for "Mom's not coming for Christmas". And be careful with the gimmick episodes...they killed "The Drew Carey Show". :)
