The Office - recap/review

When the building's power went out, Dwight took charge. (“We have enough food for 14 days...after that, we have a difficult conversation.”) The only real problem that the very short black-out caused was for the internet server. It shut down and needed a password to be opened. It didn't take long to figure out that the old password was BIG BOOBZ.

Ryan and Michael filmed a commercial for Ryan's website About half of the office had invested in, including Pam. Her explanation? "I know Ryan's a kind of sketchy guy, but hey, I married Jim, I've done my part for the nice guy. Now I want a bedroom set".

Ryan had wuphf slogans, t-shirts and condoms, but he was not accomplishing anything financially. Also, he (unsurprisingly) ripped the idea off of Kelly. So when everyone found out that a university had offered to buy the company (because they wanted the domain name), they insisted that Ryan sell. Michael stood by Ryan to prevent the sale, so Pam told Michael that Ryan was just using him. This was a great return for "sweet Pam," who always handled Michael so well. Pam was back in fine form Thursday night. Michael understood but refused to give up on 'one of his own'. In the end, Ryan caved under the pressure and send Michael a wuphf telling him that he had sold wuphf. This was actually a case of Michael handling a situation perfectly. He managed to get what he wanted and stand by his true love, Ryan.

Jim was having a great sales day until he learned that corporate had put a cap on commissions. This obviously left Jim with no reason to work. Sidenote: This is a horrible policy. His only recourse was to pull a prank on Gabe. Jim edited a recording of Jo's voice and used it to keep Gabe stuck on the phone with 'Jo.’ We’d say we should hope that this is the beginning of a new era of pranks, but we didn't think it was all that funny. The best part was when he edited Jo’s voice to call Gabe a “gay bastard.” It was clever, and in the real world, it would be a hit. On the show, it’s better when Jim sticks to pranking Dwight because of Dwight’s reactions.

The most exciting development of the night happened at the Hay Festival that Dwight built in the parking lot. While Dwight milked children for money, Angela met The Man With The Horned Rimmed Glasses (from Heroes). There was some serious flirting. It looks like Angela might be getting over Dwight soon. Dwight named himself King of the Hay, rather than giving the award to a child participant, revealing that the whole event was a plot to win the title that he'd lost to Mose as a child.

For anyone following The Office's 'That's what she said' contest, this nights reference came when Michael described all the employees as playing cards-" ...Phyllis is my old maid, Oscar is my queen. That's easy, give me a hard one. That's what Oscar said." Don't worry, Steve Carell nailed the delivery of this joke.

This was a pretty good one for this season. We’ll give it a B+.
