Yeah, I loved all those clips including dropping a phone book and the bike riding. That was awesome

We actually had one of those in a warehouse I worked at when I was 16 Some guys would actually spend a couple hours up there. I usually only lasted 15-30 minutes before my fear of getting caught got the best of me.

I improvise at work. I bring extra-large sized dark towels and hang them up in my car using the handles above the windows. I hang them on each side of the car and then put up a sun shade to block the windshield. I then lean my seat back and put a pillow (extra from home) behind my head. I park on the bottom level of the parking structure so it's very quiet (almost no street noise or other car activity). No one can see in and it's pretty dark, so I can catch an hour of zzzz's undisturbed and most importantly undetected. Ideally, I would drive a pickup with a shell or a van with tinted windows.

I work at Target, and apparently one of the overnight workers would crawl into a large sterilite bin in the back and sleep for a couple hours at a time. He was pretty quickly found out (overnight takes breaks together) and fired.

Definitely an enjoyable episode. Lotsa good quotes.

I loved the opening bit about shooting Toby but otherwise i was annoyed at the office for being judgemental

a 40 something guy should be allowed to get his nookie whereever he can get it without getting hassled !

She is the one cheating, not him

Andy in particular i wanted to punch out.

I was glad they made Andy the most upset about it. Considering he had to find out that Angela was cheating on him w/ Dwight when the whole office knew but him. If he wouldve been anything other than pissed about that situation, then his character wouldve been a waste.

I thought it was hilarious when Toby came into the office and they were all screaming at him to leave before Michael got there. Very very funny episode overall.

No love for Erin in this one? Probably my favorite bit was her response to Pam.

Pam Halpert: [yawning] Yeah. Or no, well I donno. I'm sorry. I was up all night with Cece. Otherwise I'd be, running this.

Erin: It's OK. You probably shouldn't keep a baby up that late, though.

Oh, and I'm tired of them shoe-horning Darrell into the script just so they don't lose Craig Robinson.

It's fine with me considering how funny Darryl/Craig Robinson is. A lot better than Erin, IMO.

I worked at Michael's Arts and Crafts in High School. We used to go in the back and clear out a space and surround it with dozens of Ficus trees. Always good for a quick 30 minute nap.
