I dunno. Who tries to get their coworker fired for no good reason by trying to frame him for drug possession? ... and that we're supposed to like as a character?

Also, I bet Dwight ponied up the cash.

I'm glad Toby is back.
His voice

Buttlicker owns this season so far.

Nailed it.

You can tell they are struggling with that story line.
I think perhaps it's best to show them happy, as they seem to be doing but they should make Pam a little crazy (eccentric) or something. Try to make it more interesting. Right now, she's pretty much flawless (in a realistic sense).

Jim is surely best when he's fucking with people.

However, I must give them credit for avoiding the whole 'Ross-Rachel' tortured 'can never be together predictably until the end' bullshit.

I think what's bugged me the most this season about Jim and Pam are the relationship fake-outs they've been doing. Omg, she's in NY, is that going to create problems for them?? No. Omg, Roy implies that Pam may fall for someone else, and Jim rushes off to her!! But then he comes to his senses and turns around. But wait, Pam's classmate has a thing for her!! Again, nothing. Oh no, Pam failed a class, so they have to be apart longer!! So she comes home instead. Omg, Jim bought Pam a house without consulting her first, is she going to be pissed?? No, she thought it was sweet.

I've found this crap *really* annoying. Their relationship is awesome, and I really do love that part of the show, but fuck off with the false tension, writers. Let them be happy, and let the sweet moments be more organic, and most importantly, let them be funny within the context of the setting - you know, The Office.

This is the first time I've *ever* been annoyed with the show, and it's upsetting.

I think Pam and Jim are at their best when they work together to screw with Dwight. Also, I know I got a lot of heat for not liking Toby so hopefully this will go over a little better. I wish Ryan would leave the office for good. His story line, as small as it is, is a waste of my time.

I loved Dwight's closing bit.
But most of all, I thought it was great that once he greeted the officers, he told them he was a volunteer sheriff.. haha.

You said it a hell of a lot better than I did. Totally agree.

QFT. He's the most annoying part of the show for me.

Do kids in Africa have chairs? No. They just sit on piles of garbage.

This show was very funny tonight. Andy stepping in that cow shit in the house just cracked me up and Michael did not even annoy me tonight

Pam's "dangerous ground" taunt to Jim totally made the episode for me right there, then you've got a trip to Schrute Farm and Hank the Security Guard... I'm sold.
