    I completely forgot that Angela and Dwight had sex! I'm so excited to see how this baby drama plays out.

    Jim's scam was pretty awesome.

    I'm glad they worked Jenna Fischer's real pregnancy into the story. She actually looked like a woman who just had a baby. Can't say the same for Angela.

    No Robert California :(

    Sorry for the double post. It was leaked online last night. I thought it aired last night for some reason and couldn't figure out why they would air it on Wednesday.

    Andy's dance in the beginning was the best part of the show.

    This one was pretty darn forgettable for me.

    Seems they aren't even trying to be funny anymore, it's like they are on autopilot.

    I saw it Wednesday...


    This episode actually FELT like an Office episode, unlike the last one where it was completely out of character for the characters to behave as they did. The humor was a bit more subtle.


    Robert California hasn't added any charm to the series, and I had high hopes that the writers would find a way to make Spader as funny as he was on Boston Legal.

    Dwight is right about one thing - we don't call food trucks 'restaurants'.

    So are we supposed to think that Jim planned for the babies to cry and for everyone to take pity on him, or was that just a happy coincidence for him?

    Was that in question?

    That was the whole point, Jim assumed incorrectly that it was a restaurant.

    But Dwight had to prove it by polling people. That's the funny part.

    I was half expecting them to rally at the car out of earshot and high five on a sucessful mission. That would be a typical Office twist...that Jim planned it this way all along.

    I loved when Oscar called out HRG as gay based on his comment on his present.

    Creed - Lemme have a turn. Pam - No it's the pacifiers turn!

    Creed's the best 5 seconds of any show.

    I thought Oscar called him gay when he first met him (or very soon afterwards).

    Yes Oscar has always made it known that he is sure the guy is gay.

    I'm surprised to see people enjoyed this ep. After watching it, I read Sepinwall's review, and I thought he nailed it. That wasn't a Jim "prank", that was Jim doing something very selfish and stupid, and then trying to lie (several times) and use his kids to get out of it. Jim & Pam are shadows of what they once were.

    I enjoyed the Dwight/Angela part of this story, but the rest was just lame.

    I disagree with the Jim and Pam stuff. Jim is older and his priorities have changed. He has always been selfish and was always willing to put ANYTHING ahead of this job (like playing pranks on Dwight). I thought it was stupid for him to feel guilty about making his co-workers jobs harder. He never gave a damn when he put so much time and effort into playing pranks on Dwight. Some of those took a LONG time.

    I do think they don't know what to do with Pam anymore. Part of the problem is that she was pregnant. Hopefully, they give her a little more to do now if she is back full time.
