    I thought Meredith's face was fine until the first time Dwight sprayed the insecticide on the last meal. I assumed she got sprayed good in the face since she is always the "lucky" one.

    They turned up the heat. They were trying to sweat it all out.(sweat lodge)

    Andy turned the heat all the way up in the office, to make it a sauna. I guess they were wrapping themselves to force their bodies to sweat even more.

    Yeah, I got the impression that Pam quit DM, she didn't just take a leave of absence. Michael or Dwight said something about her never returning. I wonder how long that will last? I mean, it's worked for Jan that she no longer works at DM, and they still keep her in the show, but she's a side character, not a main like Pam.

    It was tied in with the sauna idea. Wearing the plastic would make you sweat more. It's classic weight cutting, fighters do it all the time to make weight, I've seen guys drop 20 pounds in a couple of days, hell 10 pounds in 24 hours. It's all water weight, though, not real weight loss.

    I loved that Dwight had to split the imaginary commission 60/40 instead of 50/50.

    I think Meredith's face at the beginning was caused by Pam nailing her in the puss with a football near the end of last season.

    So, do you think the college-age version of Jim that Pam was bonding with is going to be an issue in the future or was it just a huge honkin' red-herring to keep us off-balance for the proposal?

    The actor did a really good job of emulating Jim and the Jim/Pam dynamic. All I could think was "uh oh...."

    Another funny episode. There were several laugh out loud moments. I for one am very happy that they didn't drag out Jim and Pam relationship and upcoming engagement. The surprise proposal at the gas station was a nice touch. She was all ready to dog him about how that place was totally not half way and having to drive farther than he did and WHAPOW! Out comes the ring. Nice job writers!

    I was very disappointed to see Ryan walk back in the office. Especially with the same attitude that he had before his arrest. But making him the receptionist and a lowly temp (AGAIN) made it better. I didn't realize how much I disliked his character's personality until he showed back up. I was hoping they would have a few isolation booth type interviews of him in prison. His list was a funny touch. Also, is he attracted to Kelly again? I don't understand that one. Especially given how bad he talked about her when they were dating.

    I can't believe Michael's still trying to be like Ryan. Did anyone notice Michael's Magical Goatee? In one scene it's there, in another it's gone, then it's back again, then he shaved it off.

    I also wondered what the heck happened to Meredith's face. I didn't notice it until my wife mentioned it when they were at the first weigh in. The only thing I can think of is (as mentioned in an earlier post) she caught a face full of Raid when Dwigt sprayed all of the food.

    Dwigt making Phyllis walk 5 miles. OMG. She should have beat the crap out of him where he stood. When she picked up the phone I thought she was going to call Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration to come take out Dwigt.

    I actually felt sorry for Andy for the way that Angela was treating him. But still laughed every time Andy started talking about the wedding she would booty page Dwigt.

    "Pubey Lewis and the News"! LOL!

    Tearing up the concert tickets was a good move. It was a big step for Michael. In the past he would have gone to the concert with her and somehow managed to look like a total idiot. By tearing them up after buying them from her, he showed her that he was interested in her and not the concert. Either that or he managed to look like a total idiot.

    I think he just needs to hook up with her to wash off the stink of PMITA prison. ;)

    Because you just know pretty-boy Ryan is going to be the prag on the inside. I bet he's got a swastika branded on his butt now. :)

    I think it's supposed to be 3 months. Unless she keeps going to the wrong classroom.

    :) I don't think he went to a hard core prison for a blue collar crime. But since he was arrested in NYC I guess he could have spent time on Rikers Island.

    My guess is that there was an interview with Meredith that explained it (wicked sunburn?) but it was cut out of the show. Maybe it will show up in delete scenes?

    Her face was fine in the opening credits, I'm guessing there was a deleted scene about how she got hit in the face with Dwight's bug spray.

    I didn't get that joke at all. I just assumed it was such an obscure reference that it was supposed to go over most of the audience's heads. Kinda like most of Dennis Miller's material.

    ... and Kevin."


    Speaking of Kevin...

    I loved how they let Holly off the hook with misunderstanding Kevin's slow talking.

    I also think this is a first that "The Camera" (aka the documentary crew) contributed with something as significant as an audible sigh when he realized he was tricked by Jim and shut out of the room.
