    wow, no thread about this yet?

    Dwight was awesome all messed up!

    And the reference to allofmp3 was hilarious!

    I realize that it was 29 minutes but it felt wicked short. I was surprized when it came to an abrupt end. I was left wanting more. Good ep, but bad ending, imho.

    Oddly, I feel that the 2 episodes that have aired since the move to Thursday have been 2 of the weaker efforts. As for last night it had it's moments and I also loved Dwight's allofmp3 reference.

    Another point, originally my guide showed the episode that is now airing next week as the episode that would have aired last night. That episode would have made for a more logical sequence.

    I love Stanley's and Josh's absolute disdain for Michael...Michael requesting that Josh bring a wet towel when he fell in the bathroom was hilarious.

    No mention of Pam's engagment though....what's up wit dat?

    Dwight was the best part of the show last night. His niceness after the concussion was hilarious.
    I thought Michael was too over the top. I prefer his character to play the "I am everyone's best friend at the office" role, and not the complete jerk.

    "I'm coming Michael!"

    "What does this look like to you???"

    "Mail Boxes Etc."

    I had to pause it

    I couldn't stop laughing at Jim with the spray battle in the mini-van.

    I don't know what happened to the sequence, but this one was supposed to have aired before last week's episode.

    Me either.... between that, and the Mailboxes Etc. comment, I got my half hour's worth of laughs. Jim squirting both Michael and Dwight in the minivan was just hysterical.

    'Bringing someone to the hospital.'

    I still maintain that these episodes are being aired mostly out of order. There was a complete lack of post Booze Cruise Jim/Pam tension.
    Next week's episode The Secret on the other hand deals Jim wondering if Michael remembers their conversation about Pam on the boat.

    Agreed. The allofmp3 reference (it's gotta be what, like 5% of this show's viewers that get that?) was the best part of the episode. I assume it was in there to sort of poke fun at its grey-area illegality since The Office is now available on iTunes? I agree that it was kind of annoying that things are out of sequence. It'd make more sense to follow up the show about Jim's rejection with at least something between Jim and Pam.

    I'm really hoping they're not running out of ideas here. Remember we've surpassed the UK Office's run now, so this is all uncharted territory now. Having Michael be an over-the-top ass isn't the way to go.

    Me too, but it made sense for him to be much more of a jerk this time, as he was injured and in pain. No surprise that he was one of those who get extremely cranky when sick. :)

    The spray bottle scenes were great!

    Loved the final scene, with Michael trying to sneak in his fot in the CAT scan machine. :D

    That particular episode mentioned in the spoiler was scheduled to be run this week, and was listed as such in the guide data as recently as Sunday.

    So, yeah, they're being run out of order.

    "You can't fire me. I don't work in this van."


    I know I've said this before, but I love the way they've made the camera into its own character. It's quickly becoming Pam's Lassie, like when it told her to let Angela know that Dwigt was okay.
