    Another hour episode, but a solid hour.

    Possibly the first good episode of the season, but it was very good.

    Of course, Creed had the best line-

    Also loved his moves during the dance with Darrell...:cool:

    In fact, now that we've seen Dwight at RM I'm really disappointed that they never promoted him back when Carrell left because all the RM, AttRM, and AttAttRM was phenomenal.

    Now, having said that, maybe they didn't think they could write Dwight and Jim interplay as funny for a few seasons, only they would know that, but the Andy as manager stuff has just been awful. It's hard for me to imagine that Dwight as manager for that period of time would have been worse.

    I almost never skip past parts of shows that I watch because I don't want to miss something that reflects on some other aspect of the show that I do enjoy, but I skipped all of Andy last night.

    I liked the episode, but felt bad for the sweet milk maid.

    The Jim/Dwight stuff felt a little if Jim were doing it just to show Pam that he was happy.

    Also, I thought that the DVD the film crew put together for Jim to show Pam was going to include a clip that showed something like Jim saying, "If I still work here ten years from now, kill me." The show has to end with Jim taking this dream job, right?

    I think it was more along the lines of that being the only way Jim could possibly be happy at that job.

    The whole Jim/Pam Athlead/Dunder Mifflin thing just just annoying.

    I may be wrong, but isn't Jim part owner of Athlead? Isn't is possible that Athlead could be a tremendous financial opportunity for the Halpert family completely dwarfing his prospects at Dunder Mifflin?

    I get that Pam is worried about the family, and moving and all that stuff but it's not like Jim has been sleeping around, or avoiding the family because he's not in love with his wife. He put everything he could into starting a new company that could provide financial independence for his family, but Pam is worried that he doesn't love her anymore?

    Yes, I am, so? I don't see how that changes anything you quoted.

    The rationality you expressed, and "wife" are incompatible.

    I am still hoping that the other investors were shocked at Jim's initial investment because it was much larger than anyone else's and it makes Jim and Pam wealthy whether Jim puts in the extra time or not.

    I think they're going to go on the road together. Wasn't there a big payday at the end of this trip? A buyout or something?

    Pam did a great job summing up the issues a couple episodes back. He's made a LOT of decisions without her. My marriage would be on the rocks, too.

    I enjoyed the episode. I enjoyed the dvd the crew made - as we were supposed to. I was puzzled about the envelope that they show Jim taking away (from christmas present?) and then he handed to her at the end.

    Dwight as manager is still just quirky enough to be fun. He would be a different manager if Jim were to leave. Maybe Andy will come back and take Jim's place so they can go on the road.

    LOVED how Dwight pulled Angela over to propose. That was perfect!

    Was that as close as we are going to get to seeing the actual (fictional) documentary?

    Classic Jim steering Dwight just where he wanted him.

    I also loved Dwight pulling Angela over.

    These last couple of episodes have been really enjoyable for me as they are heading toward wrapping up and don't have to have so much inane filler.

    Dwight getting his own security phrase wrong was a chuckle, too!

    Angela and Oscar remind me of a married couple in many of those scenes.

    I think we were essentially told that "The Office" that we had been watching, was the (Fictional) Documentary. That they are one and the same. The dialogue we heard was from the first scene of the first episode.

    And since the film crew was filming them watch the first scene, they'll eventually see them watching themselves for the first time.

    So the actual (fictional) documentary is going to run for 9 seasons? :eek:

    I'm a little bugged by that, too. We know Jim won't be happy at this job, and all the games he's playing with Dwight can't keep him entertained for very long. At some point either he gets bored with it or Dwight realizes it's all a big farce.

    Hopefully we find out in the finale that despite Jim not going on the road trip, his investment in the company paid off and he made some good money.

    Given that the previews for next week's finale said that
    they take place six months in the future at Dwight and Angela's wedding, I'd say that the answer is yes.
