    "Don't try to get in on it now, Michael Vick."

    Loved Kevin passed out in the car. :)

    "I DID, I DID have a fantastic basement. Now it smells like tacos."

    "Grunting is scientifically proven to add more power. Ask any female tennis player...or her husband."

    I like to think I could do a much better job of finding warehouse workers than Andy.

    Loved Kevin's box delivery system. I think I love Kevin in general.

    I liked Andy standing up to Darryl. Not sure what Michael would have done in that situation but I don't think it would have been that.

    This was a winner.

    Andy is a great new branch manager! His trying to get Darryl motivated and then help him pick a crew and then finally stand up to him was right on the mark. All that while Jim and gang were messing around in the loading dock. It was an Office episode that was very well orchestrated.

    "my brother Darryl....no Newhart fans here?"

    Kevin is totally awesome. He's always been my favorite character.


    Andy is clueless when it comes to the "grunt" side of the business. Like the warehouse. People that go to Cornell probably don't need to deal with such trivial matters. ;)


    However, I am a bit surprised that Jim was so dim when it came to the warehouse.

    My wife and I found this episode to be lackluster. It was entertaining, I guess, but not very humorous.

    I really enjoyed this ep - probably the first one of the new season that was really, really funny.

    All the people in the warehouse quit because they won $100,000 each? I can understand a million, but a mere hundred grand? That's not enough to quit your job. I know I wouldn't quit mine if that's all I won.

    That probably says more about the people who worked in the warehouse than anything else. They aren't portrayed as the brightest bunch.

    Darryl explained it - they quit to pursue their dreams. One was starting a fat camp. A couple were opening a strip club. That is likely what disturbed him the most.

    I think if I had a job in a warehouse, and not something like my current job, I would quit for that amount.

    Not one laugh. I might give up. I really dont want to though. There are so few good comedies left.

    I have been eh on The Office for a couple of years, but I'm enjoying the new dynamic. I don't know that I'm finding it all that ha-ha worthy, but it's definitely better than I thought it'd be post-Michael Scott.

    I have been an Andy fan for a long time so I am happy he got picked. I think he will have a nice mix of wanting to be one of the gang, wanting to be in charge and show it and also for both, being as uncertain that he is doing the right thing as he ever is.

    I loved that Jim was super embarrassed by their loading system and didn't want to tell about it. He knew it was wrong but they built it anyways.
