i was wondering if there was a new episode tonight. I rely on these threads to tell me so.

The premise sounds funny. Working in an office, those are some of the most forced and awkward moments. making smalltalk with people while waiting for the all-clear.

I thought they weren't going to do anymore episodes based on British version episodes. I guess it doesn't really matter...as long as it's funny.

The re-working of that Billy Joel song was hilarious, especially when the woman next to Kevin started dancing to Dwight and Michael's rendition.

I thought the episode started out kinda slow, but it finished off pretty strong.

Michael's sexual comments about Ryan are creepy and hilarious at the same time.

Another thumbs up for Billy Joel. Wow, another really funny episode, especially the second half of it.

This episode cements my opinion that the parking lot IS a part of the office. All scenes should be confined to the office (parking lot inclusive) from now on.

It wasn't the best episode yet if you ask me, but it is probably top 3.

I can't believe Michael referenced a semi-obscure SNL parody commercial: "Bad idea jeans."

My husband & I (who based most of our courtship on quoting obscure SNL bits) were pretty amazed at that line!

That and Dwight listening to "Everybody Hurts" really, really loud in his car were my two moments of this episode. Also, when all the men in unison said they'd do Pam.

That was probably the best episode yet, with the racial profilng and Dundee awards episodes being close runners-up.

Dwight in the car was priceless.

That and the fact he had "the club" on the steering wheel

I missed the "bad idea jeans" reference and Dwight's club. I hate it when my daughter won't go to sleep!




I like how the brought the redhead back and as soon as she said Legally Blonde (and Pam laughed), Jim cut her off.

Pam's fiance would do the blonde Christian lady w/ the tight ass. "I'm right here."

That was pretty funny, I can't believe he didn't just say Pam!

I liked the little clip of Dwight singing for the camera back inside the office holding up the cheese pita. "Ryan started the fire!"

I just looked up B.J. Novak on imdb and I didn't recognize him from Punk'd!

Yeah, that was great. I really like the Dwight character when he is dolled out in smaller portions than, say, when he was yelling and screaming and crawling on the floor when the fire alarm went off.

"What's the tight-ass Christian blond chick?"

"I'm right here."

"Oh, nice to meet you."

Very funny.


Also, I must have looked away for a second and maybe missed something, but when Jim and Katy were just about to drive off, what was it Katy said to Pam?

Great episode.

Pam telling Jim to "suck it." Maybe Pam is really our very own Groucho.

If I looked anything like Pam, I'd never leave the house.

I liked how Michael's ringtone was "Mambo #5."

Poor Ryan. "The Fire Guy." I can relate. I accidentally started a fire in my dorm room my freshman year and was forever known as "Fire Marshal Bob."
