First things first. I have no idea what the opening scene of last night’s The Office was about, but it was amazing. It was a great way to start Steve Carell’s (and maybe Mindy Kaling’s!) last season. Tear. But can I just say I think Darryl should be the new manager. There. I said it. He’s hilarious.
Here’s a rundown: Michael got West Nile Virus and hired his nephew; Erin and Gabe (not Andy!) are dating; Kelly did the minority executive program; Dwight bought the building and Jim is trying to torture him by saying that raccoons are in the ceiling; Pam makes all the buttons in the elevator do the opposite of what they say; Pam gets stuck in the elevator with Dwight; Ryan is still promoting his social-networking website and wearing black-rimmed glasses; Luke calls Phyllis Venus; Pam’s hair is straight and looks so much better!
And for everyone’s viewing pleasure – Quotes of the Episode:
Michael: God, when he needed help on earth, who did he hire? Jesus Christ, his son.
Erin: That’s a really tight argument.
Jim: But you’re comparing you and Luke to God and Jesus.
Michael: No, I’m just saying, why does God get to do something that I don’t?
Oscar: If there’s nothing wrong with this Michael, why have you been keeping it a secret?
Michael: Because, I wanted you to come to me and say ‘wow he is so great,’ and I was gonna say, ‘well, it’s in the genes.’ And I was actually going to be wearing jeans. And I’d point to them.
Phyllis It’s all the packages he was supposed to overnight. He never bothered to send them.
Michael: Alright. Those might be his. He might own an eBay store.
Jim: Yup. That’s exactly what my first thought was. But then I remembered having a conversation with him where he was like, ‘I don’t own an eBay store.’
