    If I recall, she's the bossy one in that relationship. He hated it and didn't have the courage to break it off until he got the job with corporate.


    That's what I said! What a total idiot! :D

    Not a smeek at all. You mentioned that she was planning a party, but didn't specifically mention that she actually blackmailed Angela out of the title of head of the party planning committee.

    I don't think there are any similarities between Seinfeld and the Office. Seinfeld was a show about narcissism and "nothing" and the Office is a show about relationships and heart. They have entirely different themes and types of comedy.

    The actress was pregnant last season, so I don't know if it is just carry-over from last year that people are seeing.

    Surprised nobody mentioned Dwigt's goatee. Michael grew one to be like Ryan, and Ryan shaved his off. Dwigt grew one to be like Michael, but Michael had already shaved his off. Great touch.

    boy they sure did a great job on kelly's eyes with that 'diet' of hers. Looked awful

    i'm shocked no one played with the scale..mike doing something to it would have been very in character.

    I really thought the last scene of the show would have been all of them naked on the scale in attempt to drop the last few pounds.

    I had no problems with the audio for the proposal. Was clear for me.

    I'm very suprised they brought back Ryan. Considering he committed fraud, I wouldn't think DM would allow him back in any capacity. But since it's TV, I'll overlook that....

    Was Toby there? Several people mentioned it, but I didn't notice him at all, even in a background. Then again, I wasn't looking for him either....

    Why wasn't Daryl part of the weight-loss group?

    I think they definitely could've made weight. Jim's wet clothes were worth 2lbs at least.

    The scene with Toby was the last bit at the end of the show.

    I never watched the BBC version, but I caught a few episodes back when S1 aired, thought "meh", and didn't watch it again. Over the past few years I had been told by several people whose opinions I trust that I would love the show, but based on my earlier experience could never talk myself back into it.

    FF to this summer. Nothing to watch on TV, so I decide to start Netflixxing the show. Watched all 4 seasons on DVD in the span of a month. And I loved it. *Loved* it. It was a little up and down in S1, but I thought in S2 it really hit its stride, as it was guaranteed to make me laugh out loud (literally - which is something I almost never do) at least once per episode.

    I think that Ryan is back through a temp agency... and that Dundler-Mifflin doesn't have a compliance department.

    Mike said he would pay anything to get his old friend back. I think he even would pay out of his own pocket.

    The weight-loss contest was for the sales department.

    I've said from the beginning that they really don't need to make Jim and Pam a "will they or won't they" sitcom cliche forever. It's not the central theme of the show and there are plenty of other characters to explore as time goes on. Shows that have that BS go on forever just become boring and trite when characters hook back up for a sweeps episode. It would be great if they just bucked the trend, got Jim and Pam married, and had them live happily, with spats and stuff like that of course. I enjoyed the bit of misdirection with her classmate, and I hope that's all that was.

    Right - which is why I think Michael and Holly are the new "will they or won't they" couple to replace Jim and Pam.

    So are Dwigt and Angela. And Ryan and Kelly. And any other new characters they could bring in. We don't need to drag the Jim and Pam thing to death. There's plenty of humor and drama that can already come out of them being (relatively) happy.

    Micheal said that Ryan was working for a temp agency.
    Because the judge told him to.
