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"!

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.

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!!

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 (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/the-office-(season-4-2007)/msg9910/#msg9910).

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.

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". (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/RollingOnTheFloor.gif)

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.

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!!!!!!!

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!!!!!

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. (http://i74.photobucket.com/albums/i266/Chiprocks1/Smilies/0%20All%20Smilies/RollingOnTheFloor.gif)

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.

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,.....

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 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.

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 (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/tv/parks-and-recreation-(season-4)/msg5472/#msg5472)

Not a funny episode with the exception of the cold opening with the "Aaaaaaaaaaaa's" gag and the Epilogue with Stanley and Creed. It was just...meh. Not much happened other than Michael throwing a Valentine's Day mixer for everyone in the Office to meet new people. Jim and Pam went on a lunch date with Phyllis and Bob Vance. Like I said, not much to find here in this episode.

Golden Ticket is an awesome episode based on the idea from Willy Wonka when Michael decides he wants to to a promotion for Dunder Mifflin. But this being The Office, things don't play out the way they should. I knew that as soon as the one customer announced they had one Golden Ticket that they would end up getting all 5 of them. That's 50% from their biggest client. Sure enough, Michael doesn't want to take the fall for losing money for the company and sets about getting Dwight to claim responsibility. And wouldn't you know it that when David Wallace comes to the branch, he is there to congratulate Dwight on a job well done. Watching Michael trying to reclaim the idea as his own was hilarious!!

Also funny was watching Jim, Pam and Andy giving Kevin dating advice. The KGB joke was pretty good as well.

After the disaster of the last episode and David Wallace seeing first hand how things are run at Dunder Mifflin, you knew that changes were coming. It didn't take long for that to happen. This sees the arrival of Charles Miner (Idris Elba) who will be working as a liason between Michael and David. That's not what it really is. It's basically putting him in charge to run things with Michael there in name only, with no authority. Well, when push comes to shove, people quite, which is what Michael does.

I can relate to this episode very well. I may have never been a manager, but I've worked for corporations where they send in a new Boss who just makes whole sale changes for the sake of justifying their paycheck. They don't even try to see what the working environment is like or the personnel. Has changing things like this ever worked? Exactly.

Two Weeks is exactly what it sounds like. Michael spends the final weeks at Dunder Mifflin doing nothing. But then as it gets closer and closer to his last day he comes up with the brilliant idea of starting his own paper company and then sets out to lure his former employees to join him on his quest. In the end, the only one that takes him up on his offer is Pam. It's great on a TV show, but there is no one dumb enough to throw away a paying job with benefits for something that hasn't even been thought out to completion yet. Bold move on Pam's part indeed.

Awesome episode. There is something really cool about watching Michael and Pam moving head on and tackle their fear of the unknown. It's scary to start a new business and that's going to be something a lot of people can relate to. I think that's why I respond to this episode on a personal level, watching Michael second guess himself at the beginning and then finally taking ownership of the situation when Pam starts to have her breakdown, full of doubts. Really cool to see. Also, it was funny that Michael would have to head to the bowling alley to find Ryan to add him to the Dream Team. How the mighty have fallen..............

The soccer game or more specifically the kick to Phyllis' face looked painful. It was just like the episode where Meredith got hit in the face with the football. Funny in both cases. The cherry on top for this episode is at the end when it's revealed that the Michael Scott Paper Company home base of operations is back at the warehouse....the same place as Dunder Mifflin. Priceless!!

I had completely forgotten that this episode had the first appearance from Erin (Ellie Kemper). Not sure how I would forget that since they obviously needed a new receptionist to replace Pam. The best part of this episode was the fact that Dwight and Andy are now "best buds". But that's not gonna last long, especially after their EPIC "Guitar Duel" in the break room to impress Erin. Love the quote by Wayne Gretzky that Michael re-quoted as his own. Hahahahahaha.

Awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome, awesome episode!!!! So damn funny!!! Hilarious!!!! It's just too bad this wasn't an hour long episode or even a super-sized episode. If there was ever a reason for one, it's Heavy Competition for sure. The battle for clients has begun with Michael looking to take on Dwight and nab his most prized client, one that can make or break the Michael Scott Paper Company. Loved the prank that Jim plays on Andy. Best sight gag comes at the end when Michael answers the phone with a mouthful of Cheese puffs and answers the phone. The reaction of Pam and Ryan was awesome as they couldn't stay in character as they began to laugh.

This episode has one of THE most satisfying scenes ever for this series. Every time I watch this episode, more specifically the scene in question, I get giddy with excitement watching Michael bluff his way into a million dollar buy-out. The way he cons David Wallace to agreeing to give Michael, Pam and Ryan their old jobs with medical and dental was just exhilarating to see. It was awesome!! Props to Michael for also getting Charles Miner fired from the Scranton Branch. Wheeeeee!!!!

And let's not forget Dwight's suggestion of how to defeat Michael. With Bee's. Hives. Kidnapping the Queen Bee. Hahaha. Man how I wish we were still getting episodes....writing like this now. This is when they were at the top of their game in everything they did on The Office. As for this season and now this episode, all is right in the world of Dunder Mifflin.

The funniest thing about this episode is that Meredith's idea of Casual Friday is going commando and wearing a dress that doesn't cover up any of her naughty bits. Just picturing it makes me crack up now. But the main plot of this episode is the mutiny that is forming with the employees that are  p i s s e d  off that Michael hasn't returned the clients they stole from them that Pam and Ryan now have. All in all, it was just great to have the entire gang back together under one roof again. The most memorable part of this one happens within the first 2 minutes of the episode where Kevin drops his homemade chili in the Office and then tries to get it all back into the tub.

What a fun episode. The entire "plot" here is that Michael wants to use his old Michael Scott Paper Company office as a Cafe Disco for everyone to unwind and relax in. Of course no one is receptive to this idea and it's all but history. That is until Erin and Kelly decide to just cut loose. Suddenly, one by one, everyone begins to pour in until it's a happening spot. It's all dancing all the time. Like I said, a very fun and entertaining episode, so much so that I think I will watch the episode again after I wrap up Season 5 here.

Loved the cold opening with Dwight paying Erin to pretend that she won an art contest to get back at Pam. Priceless.

I love the episode but I have always been disappointed that this wasn't an hour long episode. There was so much material to play with, especially with the return of Holly. There is just something so cool about seeing Holly and Michael together. When he is just staring at her while she is sitting beside him, that look says it all. He knows she is the 'one' and we all expect him to plead his case to her in why they belong together at some point in the episode. But that moment never arrives. I may always knock Michael for being so delusional in the reality that he creates for himself, but there is a moment toward the end when he is talking to the camera about how he knows they will end up together and that this is just part of the story that they will tell one day. There is something very soothing about that and I can't knock him for it at all.

The volleyball game was good, especially Dwight's stall tactic to give Jim and Pam time to get back from the hospital. But that becomes a moot point for them when they learn that she is pregnant. I love how they reveal this information to the viewer. No sound whatsoever. We are left to fill in the blanks and it works.

No fan of The Office should be without Season 5 on DVD. I highly recommend this to anyone that's never gotten into the series. If you haven't shame on you. Season 5 has plenty of laughs that will have you hitting the rewind button a lot because they worth an immediate repeat viewing. Love this season. So, what are you waiting for? Go get this on DVD now and thank me later. Yes, that's a Buy.
