It’s been a long 6 weeks without my favourite comedy and without my favourite show to blog about. So without further ado, here’s what I learned from this week’s The Office:
- If people laugh at you for carrying pepper spray, one day you may have the last laugh
- Sometimes there are days where I feel gruntled. Yeppers, there are some days.
- Citizens don’t get gifts for being citizens and the only true heroes in this world take off their glasses and put on their capes when the commissioner calls. Also Hiro from Heroes and Bono. They’re pretty good too.
- You can learn everything you ever wanted to know about anything from wikipedia. How could it not be true if anyone can write what they want!
- I’ve always wanted to have a dominant physical presence. I just didn’t realize all I had to do was lean back in my chair.
- Italians don’t wear pockets.
- In a choice between many long discussions about feelings or getting a punch thrown at you, it really is a pick ’em.
- You can’t put a price tag on a $100 gas card.
- Despite Dwight’s assertion that Han Solo didn’t shoot down the Deathstar for a beer I think they’re saving that scene for the 35th anniversary extra special, super deluxe collector’s edition set.
- Negotiation is an art. Wikipedia can teach you to get to a win-win-win scenario.
Great episode – loved the negotiating scenes. Also, like all great Office episodes this one had some good heartwarming moments too where we finally get to see an actual real conversation between Jan and Michael. I admit I also felt bad this week for Roy. He’s a great character and I hope we get to see him again. Speaking of great characters, I also want to welcome back Andy who graduated from anger management class on time. Quite an accomplishment.
Welcome back The Office.
