The Office -- "The Promotion" -- 10/01/09

The Office

Synopsis:

Spoiler:


David Wallace (Andy Buckley) floors the staffers with news that not all will receive raises for the year. Elsewhere, Jim pushes Dwight too far, so Dwight sets out to form office alliances. And Pam focuses on her wedding-gift wish list.



After some searching, I managed to locate a current season 6 photo with the cast including the new secretary.

Any episode that David gets in the mix is usually pretty good.

I was going to say that it might be a picture from the upcoming Jim and Pam nuptials and that Darryl didn't attend. Toby wouldn't want to go to Pam's wedding for obvious reasons, but Bob Vance would have to be thereto be Phyllis' date.

But then I saw that Pam isn't wearing a wedding dress in the pic so that pretty much tosses that theory out the window.

that was a great episode, loved the stuff with Jim and Micheal. liked the end when Micheal was telling jim how he had to do this by himself, then runs out to get him a worlds best boss mug. Great episode.

Though it was weird seeing Jims new office there.

He was talking to Phylis for a bit about the raises.

My question...what was that office that Jim now has used for before? Was it seen?

It looked to me like they built a tiny office where Creed used to sit, hence his now facing Meredith and him seemingly noticing her for the first time.

He also said "That's not how that goes" to Michael's "My plan, a man, a canal, panama."

"What does a bean mean?"

Great, Great episode. Classic even.

Michael's line about the calculator was the hardest laugh this show has given me in a while.

Guess I'm in the minority this week. The opening bit with Dwight was gold. The rest of the episode, not so much. Michael acting like a complete child really detracted from the whole episode. It's really starting to get on my nerves.

Also why does Jim & Pam need cash? Jim just got promoted and they were discussing raises the entire episode. Also didn't they inherit Jim's parent's house? Wouldn't that be $0 a month for a house payment? Seems odd. Lastly why promote Jim at all when every time he's been in charge previously he screws something up? Both of these plot points seem to be merely to shake things up and not taking in what development has been laid before.

Jim bought the house, he didn't inherit it.

It was before the housing market collapsed.
