    He had the "I'm still the liason" line, so I guess they're leaving open the possibility of him being around from time to time.

    He'll probably be like Jan, or any of the other regional managers from before Sabre bought the company.

    Since Sabre bought it Jo has been filling that role of randomly popping up.

    pam already is "office manager" (which is different than "branch manager")

    I hope it's not Dwight. I like the idea of James Spader as the manager.

    I will miss Gabe. I liked him.

    I don't really understand why Jim doesn't want the job. I understood him not taking it when it was temporary--because things were going fine without a manager, but now that it is permanent, why wouldn't he want the control and the bump up in salary?

    An "office manager" is someone who orders staples, pens, schedules the boardroom, etc. It's not a prestigious job, but can have perks like how a quartermaster in the military has perks. She also negotiated a little pay bump for it. :)

    ANd he was too big for The Practice and Boston Legal as well?

    Are you basing this on the previews or the episode itself.
    Because it's been obvious to me that they (the producers) weren't going to name a new manager until the Fall.

    No, I got the impression that this was an overnight trip as she left with the dogs and came back the next day.

    I was thinking about this last night and while I like the idea of any the "big name" candidates taking over (especially Warren Buffet), my gut is kind of saying to me that they are setting up Andy to be the new manager.

    And since Ed Helms' star appears to be on the rise, it makes a certain amount of sense (and would piss off Dwight. If fact, the only one that would piss off Dwight more would be Kelly).


    But did she really?
    While Andy may not know this, didn't Erin say something in confessional in the season opener to the effect that she felt that she had to go out with Gabe because he's her boss.

    Because when Sabre took over, they changed the payout structure to where if you're selling, you can make a lot more money just doing Sales then actually being a Manager.

    Heck, even Michael fought Jim to not be the manager when he saw the new payout system.

    yes. Co-manager.

    IIRC, he quit that job because the salary structure was setup in such a way that he could make more money as a regular salseman. Michael didn't make that much money.

    Andy could be an interesting pick for manager.

    I also kept seeing ads for Hangover 2 and thinking it looked like him....but never saw Hangover so I wasn't exactly sure.

    With Harry's Law being picked up for the Fall, I'm guessing that Kathy Bates will have limited availability to appear on The Office.
    Which I have mixed feelings about as while I like Harry's Law, I love Kathy Bates as Jo.


    I'd guess that Gabe will still be around (ala Ryan in Season 3) or be doing video chats.
    It's either that or introduce another character.

    He had the job for a while, when he was co-manager with Michael, and he found it to be an absolute nightmare.

    Toby looked like hell. Is the actor going through chemo or something?

    Now I have to go back and watch the Warren Buffet scene.

    Yeah he gets paid a salary of 100k (his total compensation of course is much larger) at Berkshire Hathaway and he is known to be frugal with his vehicle so see him with both those trademarks was hilarious. What name was he credited under?

    you mean the chracter name or how he (as an actor) was credited?

    I don't think they ever gave his chracter a name. And I didn't pay attention to the opening credits.

    Yes whether he was credited under a character name, 'interviewee' or as himself.

    Not sure if we even saw that. I know they don't usually give character names for the other actors. But I am pretty sure he was playing "Manager Candidate #1" or something like that and wasn't actually appearing as Warren Buffet.
