Weight Loss


































Epic episode and one of the best sight gags ever with Michael Scott doing 'Michael Klump' in his best effort to motivate the Office to lose enough weight so that they can win the Branch Wars for additional vacation time. Also, Jim finally proposes to Pam in the most unconventional place ever...a gas station. It was actually pretty damn cool how it played out. Loved the "Musical Chairs" Goatee gag that Michael, Ryan and Dwight were embroiled in. A fantastic episode that ended with THE perfect joke: Toby laying in bed recuperating. I had forgotten all about his appearance for this one. Poor Toby.

This also has the awesome rap that Holly and Michael perform...."Wicka, wicka, wicka, whaaaaaaat"!

Business Ethics


























Trouble in paradise for Michael and Holly? It looks that way when during Holly's Ethics meeting it is revealed that Meredith has been sleeping with a client to get discounts on paper as well as Steak coupons. Needless to say, Holly feels that she has to report this to Corporate, but Michael wants to bury this and move on. This leads to a difference of opinions and puts a strain on their friendship. Loved the bit where Jim is timing Dwight for time-theft and I was howling watching Dwight work through taking bathroom breaks at his desk without skipping a beat. Very funny.

The cold opening where Jim gets tackled by Michael was also hilarious.

Baby Shower

































A very uncomfortable episode to watch that ends in one of the coolest and most unexpected scenes in the entire history of The Office. It was uncomfortable watching Michael try in vain to make this "connection" that does not exist with Jan or the baby as if it were his own. I can't see anyone in real life that would go to such lengths. It's embarrassing and sad. The other thing that was uncomfortable was watching Michael put down Holly for Jan's sake. Why? Why do this to anyone, let alone the one that you obviously have a major crush on. I just don't get where anyone can justify calling Holly names (even though she was warned beforehand by Michael himself that he would do) just to make Jan feel.....feel whatever it is he was trying to do for her.

This leads into the coolest scene ever. Micheal realizes how dumb and idiotic and probably how ashamed he is for doing what he did to Holly, just goes up and just holds her. Watching Holly tear up was just an incredibly powerful scene. Just an awesome moment to savor. And then to top it off, Michael finally asks her out on a date. About damn time dude!!



Love Dwight's method of testing baby strollers.

Crime Aid




























Great episode, or an awesome episode if you were to go by Michael and Holly's assessment. Why wouldn't it be? They finally hooked up and got laid. Good for them. Ha. Actually, it was pretty good in how it finally happened. They ended up doing it at the Office after work so they could have some privacy from the camera crew. Afterwards, it's implied that neither locked up the Office when they left for the night which leads us into C.R.I.M.E. A.I.D. What is that you ask? It's an auction that Michael sets up to recoup the Office's lost when they are robbed of a lot of valuable stuff. The Big Ticket item for the auction is front row seats for Bruce Springsteen. Since we are talking about Michael, these tickets don't exist. Michael and Holly's love affair will soon come to an end because David Wallace learns (and sees first hand) about their relationship. Not good. But the episode itself was very good.

David Denman returns as Roy for a cameo.

FYI, C.R.I.M.E. A.I.D. stands for "Crime Reduces Innocence, Makes Everybody Angry, I Declare". I love the inside joke of adding "I Declare" which is a callback to a previous episode where Michael declares bankruptcy. The episode in question is Money.

Employee Transfer




























Sad episode where Holly is being forced to transfer back to her old branch by corporate because of their strict dating policy, thus effectively ending Michael and Holly's relationship as a couple. The Halloween costumes, especially Creed as the Joker was a hoot. Even Dwight looked kick ass as the Joker. The gag with Dwight applying to Cornell and the interview that follows just to get under Andy's skin was hella funny. The only weak part of this episode was Jim's brothers, along with Pam, pulling a prank on him.

Customer Survey






























There is definitely a continuity error with this episode for sure. In the last episode where Andy is dressed as a beet farmer to get back at Dwight for dressing in a Cornell sweater, he obviously knew what Dwight's other profession was and where his farm was as well. So, when Angela in this episode suggests to Andy that they get married on a farm within 5 miles of the city, you would think Andy would already know about Schrute Farms. So it was a little odd that Andy would do research online and "discover" Dwight's farm that way. Continuity error.

In spite of this little flub, this is still a great episode. From the opening with Michael's "Marriage proposal psyche" to the 'Tiniest Blue Tooth' gag to Kelly, this was very funny. Even Pam got in on the joke when.....

Kelly to Dwight: Stay out of my nook!

Pam: That's what she said.



But the funniest scene for the entire episode and quite possibly all of Season 5 was the Phone sale with "Bill Buttlicker".

Business Trip
























Great episode that finally gives some screen time to Oscar. He's really be relegated off to the sidelines while everyone else gets to play in the sandbox. So, it was finally that it would be him to basically sabotage Andy's chances with Angela by getting him to drunk dial her and demand to know what the deal is with her. As for Michael, I don't get how he could continually make excuses for upper management's lack of respect toward him. They sent your girlfriend away! Have some balls and call them out on their  s h i t  when it happens, not a week later....over the phone.

Loved the fact that Ryan just got suckered into dating Kelly again when his original plan to have a negative reaction from Darryl regarding Kelly breaking up with him didn't pan out as such. Hahahaha. Also, Pam returns back to Scranton at the cost of giving up her dreams of being an artist in NY.

Frame Toby




























This was an awesome episode and the opening was exactly how I had imagined Michael's reaction to when discovering that Toby would be back working at Dunder Mifflin now that Holly is gone. Priceless. I thought it was very funny at the lengths Michael would go to get Toby fired, first by trying to get Toby to punch him unprovoked and then later trying to plant weed in Toby's desk and calling the cops. But what made this even funnier is when the cops show up and Creed unwittingly stood up as if to confessed to having drugs on his persons. Funny.

The best scene though was the ending when Pam realizes that Jim bought her a house. But the kicker was that Jim was thinking only of her when putting together her art studio in the garage. That's how you score some brownie points!!! Also, I'm on Pam's side with her writing the note to whoever was leaving a filthy mess in the microwave. But I wouldn't have signed it anonymous. I would have signed my own name. No way in hell I would clean up someone else's mess and I wouldn't care who knew that I wrote the note. Bring it!!

Dwight's "Perfect Crime" story at the end was AWESOME!!!!!!!

The Surplus


























Good episode that has the employees kissing Michael's ass to convince him to do something with the surplus that benefits them and not corporate. Half the Office wants a new copier machine because in the words of Jim, "sucks". The other half wants new chairs. I found it particularly funny watching Pam get all dolled up and then flirting incessantly with Michael to sway his decision. Oscar and Jim on the other hand take him out to lunch. Decisions, decisions. So, what does he do? Why he has Hank the Security Guard try to make it for him. Doesn't work. The Fur coat with fake blood at the end was a nice gag.

Also, Dwight cons a clueless Angela into marriage in the hopes that this will finally win her back. For the time being, it doesn't.

Best gag of the season was Andy stepping in a pile of  s h i t  outside the barn. But then to have him step in another pile of  s h i t  inside of Dwight's house was EPIC!!!!!

Moroccan Christmas

























Awesome Moroccan Christmas party that turns into an awesome Intervention. We all know how much Meredith likes to drink. But she took it to another level here. She drank so much that when her hair caught on fire, she didn't think much of it, like it was no big deal. Enter Michael and his attempt to save her from herself. The scene where he is trying to get her to commit to rehab was funny. But it was Michael dragging her into the building that was hilarious.

I wish the show would utilize Meredith (and Creed, Oscar, Stanley and Kevin) more. They have a ton of comedic gold in those actors but just stick with Jim, Pam, Dwight and of course Michael. I think if they show had spread the wealth around the Office more, it would have hurt a lot less when Steve Carell eventually left the show.

So, Angela finally steps up to Phyllis and calls her bluff that she won't tell anyone that she saw her and Dwight having sex after the announcement of her engagement to Andy. The bluff lasted all of 5 seconds before Phyllis told the entire Office. Poor Andy. Well maybe not 'poor Andy'. No one should ever settle for someone like Angela. I say it's a blessing to get out now while he can.

The Duel






























This was awesome. The "fight" that goes down between Dwight and Andy at the end was incredibly funny. There really wasn't a whole lot to this episode other than the slow build up to the confrontation between the two. There is a certain satisfaction that the viewer gets when Angela realizes that neither one wants her anymore. Who would want her to begin with anyway? She's too high strung and "holier than thou".

I liked how Michael thought he was  b u l l s h i t t i n g  his way through his meeting with David Wallace about his job performance. I don't know if there are any delusional people on his level in real life. There can't be. Right?

Also, I do believe this is the first instance of The Office using Greenscreen to film a pickup scene. They may have done so with previous episodes, but this is the first one that stood out and being very noticeable. If you look at the last image, you can clearly see that Steve Carell is in fact superimposed onto the scene. This would not be the last time they would do this. A few more are on there way,.....

Prince Family Paper



























Two things go down here. First, Michael and Dwight raid a Mom and Pop Paper Company in the hopes of getting their client list so that they can take them to Dunder Mifflin. Unfortunately for Michael, they are a really nice family. Hell, they even help fix Michael's car after the interview. In the end, Michael has no balls and still gives the information to David Wallace. I just lost a lot of respect for a fictional character that will not influence my life in any way. Pfftt.

But the most important thing about this episode is not a crisis of consciousness. No, it's about whether or not Hillary Swank is 'Hot'. In a word....yes. I like the lengths the gang goes to prove or disprove if she is in fact hot.

Stress Relief










































Stress Relief is one of, if not THE funniest episodes of The Office. Off the top of my head, I can't think of another one that even comes close to this. Hey, that's why I'm doing an Office marathon right now. Duh. Unfortunately this is also where The Office officially 'Jumped the Shark' in my eyes when they brought in Jack Black, Jessica Alba and Cloris Leachman. It's not that their parts in this episode were bad, it was just that it was so uncharacteristic of the series and it didn't quite feel right having big name stars on the show. The episode nor the series needed big name stars at this time....or anytime for that matter.

As for the rest of the episode, this definitely has the greatest opening ever. There is no denying that it is the funniest and most insane cold opening ever when Dwight starts a fire in the Office to train the rest of the employees in fire safety. When things fall apart and the  s h i t  hits the fan, I couldn't stop laughing. Sooooooooo damn funny it hurts. What could top this? Oh, how about the CPR class where Dwight cuts off the face of the CPR dummy and does his best Hannibal Lecter.

This episode also has the famous Roast bit where everyone basically makes Michael cry. Hell, when Michael comes back the next day and Roasts everyone else in The Office, they were genuinely funny jokes. The jokes are so good that I have been using the 'Meredith, you've slept with so many guys that you're starting to look like one" roast as my forum signature since 2008. It's that funny.

Lecture Circuit (Part 1 and 2)





























This episode went by way too fast. The episodes premise is based on the UK version with Ricky Gervais. That's a very risky thing to do because Ricky's version is priceless as in it can't ever be topped. Period. It does add to the original by having Michael head to Holly's branch in the hopes of getting closure with her. Unfortunately for him, she is away on vacation but has to deal with her new boyfriend AJ. This of course sends Michael spiraling toward depression. He ends up stealing a word document off her computer but can't bring himself to read it. So, Pam does read it and tells him Holly still has feelings for Michael. This is what he needed to hear or it would just get even worse. Props to Pam for averting a much bigger problem when we all know that she never said that in the letter. Or did she..............?

The other half of the episode dealt with Jim and Dwight trying to throw the perfect Birthday party for Kelly who is  p i s s e d  at everyone for not remembering her birthday the day before.

It was cool to see Rashida Jones return once again as Karen. I miss her on the show. Thank God Rashida got the gig on Parks And Recreation
