I'm not a Holly fan, so hopefully she isn't annoying this episode.

Halfway through and this episode is just fantastic. This is shaping up to the best season in a long, long time.

I loved Toby's talking head about how people might eventually enjoy talking to him. It's great how they're working the Scranton Strangler into Michael's final season.

Andy: "I don't have any kids or anything, but if my grandma ever dies I'm going to kill myself."

Man, this snowball storyline is amazing. I loved how Jim just got up, walked outside, came back, and hit Dwight with the snowball; it's like he didn't even have to think about it, it just happened naturally. But man, did Dwight unloaded on Jim. I thought he might be waiting in the snowman, but that reveal was awesome. It's nice to see Jim get his every once in a while. I thought it was over, but Jim dressing up like Pam for the second onslaught was just fantastic.

Promos for Parks And Recreation (looks fantastic)
Promos for Perfect Couples (looks terrible)

---

Holly: "I'm really surprised at you guys. Last time I was here, you were both best friends."

Jim: "Okay, I'm sorry, why are we discounting this whole Woody came to life thing so quickly?"

I knew that the present on Jim's desk was going to be a snowball to the face from Dwight, but man that was just perfect.

Erin's dead serious, "I know who you are and I think you should go" when AJ showed up was great. I'm glad they didn't have Michael freak out and start acting crazy when AJ showed up, I just hope they stick with it. I loved his "I am dead inside" though.

---

Dwight only agreeing to stop if he could watch Jim hit Pam in the face with a snowball, haha.

Great ending to an amazingly hilarious and touching episode. Nice to see Holly cover for Michael and nice to see Michael come through in the end for Daryl. What was great was that Michael just did that because he's a genuinely nice guy, and Holly could see that he is great with kids and probably more what she's looking for than AJ. I always love Michael/Pam moments too, ever since the start of the show, so it was nice to see one of those again.

All those snowmen

---

But the best lines of the night though came from Erin...

"I'm sorry, I can't help you. I'm waiting for my boss' pretty friend to arrive."
"I just don't think Holly's in a position to be shooing away guys..."

"Thank you Scranton Strangler, I love you, you just took another person's breath away"

Erin's comments about Holly were great

Yeah, I thought it was a pretty solid episode. The Jim-Dwight snowball feud was the best part, and the funniest interaction between the two of them in a long time.

I did feel Michael was going off the deep end a bit too much, as per usual. I have a hard time believing anyone would tolerate his borderline psychotic behavior. At least they toned him down later in the episode.

I liked the episode, but my favorite part was after Michael confessed the Woody thing and they had that tense moment you had the one-two punch of Erin chasing Holly away and Kevin complaining about the candy.

Loved the snowball battle. The end was fantastic and all the snowmen reminded me of Calvin and Hobbes.
