Here’s what I learned from this week’s super-sized The Office:
- 3 demerits = 1 citation; 5 citations = 1 violation; 4 violations = 1 verbal warning; 2 written warnings = 1 disciplinary review that goes to your immediate superior. Who ever said you don’t need math to go into HR?
- Laughing about people behind their backs? They aren’t there so no harm, no foul!
- Foliage isn’t just about leaves.
- The cornerstone of our justice system to protect small and delicate people from local pervs: Better 1000 innocent men get locked up than 1 guilty man go free.
- An emergency task force can be a useful tool when it is given priority one over other emergency task forces.
- I have to agree with Dwight this week – Collectible action figures are not dolls. Not that I’m being defensive or anything.
- Context is everything. It makes the difference between a monster movie and a wonderful sight.
- I asked my wife if she’s more in tune with the moon and the tides – she didn’t know what I was talking about. Sorry Dwight.
- I always thought my kids looked a little too flashy in their Gap Kids clothes.
- Just as all men suspected, the women’s washroom is NOT like the men’s.
- Sometimes saying “It’s not me, it’s you” can make all the difference.
- The Wizard of Oz is a great metaphor for life.
Great episode. The pervert poster was brilliant – one of the best pranks in the history of The Office, as good as future Dwight sending himself faxes. Michael was excellent starting off as his usual ass-ish self but by the end making us sympathize with him. I’m going to miss this show over the summer.
