    that puppet reaction was awesome. But I just couldn't laugh. The emptyness and desire expressed by that young Michael Scott was just too sad. And the remarks of the children that cut through his fascade of humor and self-delusion. they showed how empty his life still is. :(

    The operative word being "daughter," not son. As was mentioned above, I guess she got permission to bring her son.

    I think that's sort of the problem - didn't they just hook up that one time? And Ryan told her he wasn't interested in pursuing a relationship but she keeps thinking that they are in one even though he continues to blow her off? Maybe I'm forgetting something.

    I wanted to like Chatty Kelly because she is funny, but her going to Stanley to tell him that Ryan was doing something "inappropriate" with Stanley's daughter was really over the line. She's not a nice person. I can't believe Ryan didn't totally yell at her for doing that because now Stanley is going to hate Ryan and think he's some sort of pedophile and they have to work together every day.

    Disapproving Angela, however, while definitely not a nice person, continues to make me laugh. She has great facial expressions also and seems to be a good match for Mr. Poop.

    There was a comment about them 'just having fun'. I think there's some... extracurricular activities going on that Ryan couldn't say no to. Consider the look on his face when she talked about how many kids she wanted. I think he was afraid that she was going to try and get pregnant with him and lock him in.

    Looks like Pam is getting worried that maybe Jim really is over her and moving on...

    For me the best scene was Stanley chewing Ryan out in the breakroom. My first laugh outloud moment this week!

    I agree...that was great, and then with her wanting to ride with him when Michael wanted him to go to his mother's house...good stuff...
    As for Kelly's comment being "over the line"...come on people, she just did it so he'd get a hard time from Stanley, she didn't honestly think there was anything inappropriate going on other than possibly being a little jealous over some girl talking to her big stud...
    Plus it's a comedy...move on, let long as it sets up funny, that's all that matters...

    I don't think Ryan knew that Kelly ratted him out.

    As for Angela, I loved the look she gave Dwigt when he tried to be stern with the kid. That was classic.

    Seeing Struwwelpeter reminded me of Max and Moritz. Man, those German children's writers are twisted.

    What? I never said it wasn't funny. Are we not allowed to discuss the show, except to say that part was funny, and that part wasn't? I like talking about the characters too, if that's okay with you.

    Kelly's lying to Stanley was totally over the line imho. Because she was lying. And basically telling Stanley that Ryan was a pedophile making a pass at his 13-year-old daughter (or thereabouts). Totally skeevy thing to do.

    I thought Kelly was just a dimb bulb, but she's actually much more manipulative than I would have guessed, doing something that devious. That's the sort of thing I'd expect from Angela or Mr. Poop, but I didn't think Kelly had it in her. It really showed that she will stop at almost nothing to trap Ryan in her clutches. Trap him like a poor animal, whose forced to chew off its own leg to get free.

    But Stanley's chewing out of Ryan? Hilarious. I will be interested to see how this changes the dynamic of the Stanley/Ryan interactions from this point forward. Poor Ryan just can't seem to catch a break. I love his hangdog expressions. He and Angela were both great in this episode.

    Ryan started the fiiiire!

    Where I work, Take your daughter to work morphed into take your sons and daughters to work to going away completely. It became a huge task to keep the hundreds of kids who showed up entertained for the day as office type of work isn't exactly all that inspiring to your average 8-12 year old. The local school districts weren't all that happy with it anyway.

    As far as Kelly goes, she is such a whack job that I don't think she thought she was actually lying in her own mind. Why even go to Stanley unless you think there was something going on there.

    I'm late to the show..was someone naughty?

    So I wonder why pam didn't leave with him and stalk him and his date? That would make an interesting scene.

    Thats not really surprising, since she's shown herself to be frighteningly attached since the episode after they hooked up.

    When you first hear Stanley's daughter flirting with Ryan, it sounds exactly like Kelly's chattering. I'm not surprised she felt threatened and she probably thought Stanley would react by reigning in the daughter rather than attacking Ryan.

    I agree. It was out of character for Kelly, which is strange because Mindy Kaling wrote the episode.

    That's exactly what I thought. In fact, it took me a second to realize that it wasn't Kelly.

    I'm wondering if the little girl is actually Steve Carrell's real life daughter. She looked alot like him, especially in the eyes.

    Loved the ep. This show compliments Earl very well.
