Spoiler:
Remember when Jim sprayed Dwight with the water bottle to keep him awake? I wonder if the reverse happens in this episode?

"If I had a gun with only two bullets and was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden, and Toby, I'd shoot Toby...twice." - Michael

That might have just been the funniest line in Office history. I literally lost my breath from laughter.

EDIT: Drav3n just beat me to it.

Being from The Poconos, it was cool to see the actual NBC affiliate (WBRE) used as the local news station

I cracked up at Creed's line about Wanted, had to rewind it.

Yes, that was funny. But I honestly thought that Michael's later line to Stanley - "Shut up, Morgan Freeman, narrating everything" (or something to that effect) was even funnier. Actually, Michael was pretty funny throughout this whole episode, and a lot less ridiculous overall than he's been lately.

An okay episode, overall. The Dwight-Angela contract stuff continues to be a little too silly for my tastes. The closing segment about the printer fire controversy is probably setting up what will be the season ending cliffhanger.

When he was acting like a jerk, Michael was almost a perfect mirror of David Brent, until he took it over-the-top (but not absurdly) by eating the cake.

I loved jerk Michael and was sad to see him recant so quickly.
Great episode, plenty of audible laughs!

I liked it when Ryan gave it a shot: "I think you're hot and I want to sleep with you." "What about Kelly?" "You read my mind."

Great episode all around.

Great episode. So many great things. When Michael didn't put paper in the copier for Creed after using it, Creeds "this man doesn't give an F about anything!!" line was awesome.

The '2 bullets' line might have been funny if it wasn't such an old joke.

Toby's the show runner and Executive Producer. Stress is a killer

I thought this was one of the best episodes of the season. Lots of hilarious stuff, I'm laughing right now thinking about the Morgan Freeman line. Can't wait to watch it again.
