Last night I told my fiancee "I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today" and he just looked at me with a blank stare. I don't know why this quote from The Carpet makes me laugh everytime I hear it

Awww...Tiger was lem's fiancee back when she wrote this.

I'm completely avoiding work at the moment, so need to bump this thread up.

edited to add: aannnnd, I made the thread 2 pages now!

This episode doesn't get a lot of love on these boards, but it's one of my favorites.

No kidding, Scranton On Speed. This episode needs a lot more love.

Ah, this was the first episode that the lady BMF and I watched together. We now call each other Gay Nerds...

I love this quote. It's Popeye. Or rather someone from Popeye. Like another one of my favorite quotes. I am what I am.

Hello all...Long time Lurker, first time poster...

And yet you went on to post only 32 more times before calling it quits. Was it something we said?

Wait, are we still supposed to believe that you are gay with your LADYfriend, BMF?

Apr 8th 2009

Indeed. It evens us out, you know?

Better than crapping on each other's carpets.

This episode needs a lot more love.

I think it gets an appropriate amount of love.

Teehee. That made me laugh.

I very much enjoy this episode. Everything from Pam's "nuh-uh, nuh-uh, nuh-uh...Open the door up!" to Michael's hatred of the cleaning lady.

I too love this episode. It is full of awesome.

Kelly 2.0, the one who thinks there's a job title "closet engineer," the one who likes Beyonce, pink the color, Pink the person, hot dogs, basically anything that is awesome... (and then adds, "snow cones" as if you can top "anything that is awesome").

All the giggling talking heads.

And one of the greatest talking heads of all time: "Go get yourself a monkey kidney."

The look on his face is, I think, the moment he realizes (1) he is in love with Pam and (2) more importantly, he is in real trouble...Think about it...He's "gone" all day after she has been gone all week...Probably got to the point where he talked himself into not caring about Pam in that way...Even managed to get distracted with someone else's love life (Kelly and Ryan)...Then, Pam leaves 7 messages...It is the best part of his day...And he's back to square 1...

I really liked this analysis. Reading it make my heart break for season 2 Jim all over again. I also love this episode. Allergic to the desk?

(2) more importantly, he is in real trouble...

I always view the 7 messages as bittersweet for Jim. Yes, she took the time to leave them, but in the end he is still driving home alone and she spending the evening with Roy planning her wedding. This, in combination with the confrontation in Boys and Girls are what leads him to pull away in the next few episodes. Contrary to Michael's advice, he does in fact "give up".

I miss that, how do I put it, intensity of emotion. I'd root for Jim, not because I thought I was a lot like him, but because he'd find himself in situations like that would make me think, I've been there. I know what that's like.

Contrary to Michael's advice, he does in fact "give up".

Ouch. But yeah.
