    Watching the bouncing square was too funny. I had to rewind to watch the beginning again after I knew what they were reacting to.


    ... and once it hit the corner? Meeting over.

    :up:


    That's all I've seen so far. I'm saving it for later. :eek:

    I think Michael is going too far with his craziness. The kidnapping situation was odd.

    lets see if the folks who thought the driving into the lake thing was more or less over the top than him holding the pizza kid hostage.

    I think it's been pushing it, but these episodes seen together form a nice little arc about how Michael is driven nuts by Ryan's management and Michael's hate/fear of the new technology. That was what the whole pizza deal was about too.

    The main problem for me was that this just wasn't that funny. Only thing that really made me laugh was Andy's line to Angela about "I know that up until, and possibly through, this moment I have repulsed you"

    I found this episode to be pretty weak.

    +1

    My problem with the kidnapping wasn't that it was over-the-top... I'm okay with that on this show (as I said WRT the driving into the lake.) No, my problem with the kidnapping... was that it just wasn't funny.

    I wonder if this is supposed to lead up to an episode during sweeps where Michael goes completely nuts and is institutionalized.

    Dwight not shaving...is he imitating Ryan? I think so!

    Who is Marc Christie? At about :26 in there's a certificate on the wall that says Marc Christie is a "Golden Contributor to the Dunder Mifflin Fund for the Protection of Wayward Teenage Girls". :D

    (Never mind...I just googled him and he's a grip on the show. :))

    I thought the kidnapping was classic Micheal, no problem with it at all. (And I was one who thought the driving in the lake thing was kind of lame.) And come on, you've got to admit the pizza kid was funny, even if you thought Micheal wasn't!

    Did Michael get his license taken away after he hit Meredith with the car? What's the deal with him not driving anywhere?

    I live in the Poconos, and know very well how to get from Scranton to NYC. The scenery during their trip into the city was sooooo California. :)

    Jim having to sign Meredith's panty cast was cringe-worthy...

    Oh yeah! Jim was cringing and I was cringing right along with him. Yukk. And what was that "I'm singling you out" stuff?

    Wonder where Toby was? Unless they knew if he was there he would stop the kidnapping, so they just wrote him out for 1 episode.

    I thought the best parts were Dwight talking with the computer..........

    "How do I know this isn't Jim?"

    "What is a Jim?"

    My two favorite parts were the scene with Dwight - Darryl - Kelly and when Phyllis balled up the sticky notes and threw them in Angela's face.

    I thought the first episode was better than the second, but both were really good.

    Oh, also love Ryan's confessional sessions.

    His regular car is still being fixed(probably) and they won't let him have another rental car for fear of drowning.

    I think she has the hots for Jim. Was she in the hospital when the "secret" relationship was revealed?

    There seemed to be potential relationships cropping up everywhere in this episode. I loved the scene of Andy singing to Angela. And I think a Darryl & Kelly hook up would be very funny.

    But that's just it....for Michael, NOTHING is too crazy. He just keeps pushing the envelope. We thought it was hilarious simply BECAUSE there was that uneasy feeling that he had gone too far. :D

    I thought this was the best of the hour longs so far. I laughed a lot. My GF is now hooked on the office based on this episode.

    Andy's barbership triplet song was surprisingly charming. I really enjoyed the glengary leads, the HAL 9000 chat, and Angela.
