Finally, a new episode. Seems like every time I'm ready to watch this on a Tuesday it's being skipped that week in favor of an episode of The Biggest Loser.

This episode was just flat-out awesome. Loved the final shot that Michael took. Oh damn, I was crying from laughing so hard at that last scene with Meredith.

The beginning with the awful Secret Santa gifts reminded me way too much of the people from work including Kevin and his "I got my own name, I was supposed to tell somebody, but I didn't". I was rolling. The used shirt was almost as bad as the crate of oranges that was given out a few years ago.

One time, at work, one guy brought in a toilet seat as his white elephant gift. Suffice it to say, that gift got passed around all night long.

Great episode! My group at my own office once did that "White Elephant" thing, and it severely sucked! If you get something good, someone just takes it away.

(And I just "finally" discovered that NBC has deleted scenes from the series at their website )

This was a great episode, one of the best. But WTF is up with Dwigt?
Spoiler:
Hie's a ladies-man all of a sudden?
I don't buy that at all.

It depends on how much vodka that chick had, I guess. Maybe it was the ears...

I believe Kelly was one of the people that didn't drink. But even if she did, COME ON!

Once again I've watched The Office, and once again I have to ask the question...This show is supposed to be funny?

I loved this one as well. There weren't as many LOL moments as some other episodes have had, but this one really captured the horrifyingly awkward moments of the original BBC series.

*shrug*

If you have to ask about this episode, I think it's clear you and The Office were just not made for each other. I hate that for you, but it does at least mean you have an extra half hour for whatever it is you do find funny.

I can't believe I haven't commented about Jim making his comments about the shirt to the camera with the cut right to Creed confirming his guess about the shirt's origin. That slayed me.

It was an average episode IMO, which by this show's standards means I still laughed my ass off. Dwight's "Titanic" quote and the look on his face while shooting paintball were classic. Angela is just plain creepy.

And as for the final shot, thank God this wasn't the UK version cuz they might've shown us the other side.

Actually, I loved it when the promos after the episode announcing that The Office was moving to Thursday nights, and they show Dwigt's reaction to seeing Jan in the parking lot.

I personally liked using the foot tub at the party and the mistletoe.
