I know that Season 3 has had its ups and downs. I've been critical of many aspects of it myself. But in the spirit of tonight's season finale, and as a show of anonymous online solidarity for the show, I thought this might promote a little positivity: what has been your favorite moment of Season 3? What scene has most made you say to yourself, "I love this show!"?

May 17th 2007

I think for me it was seeing Andy float in the dark in his sumo suit. That mental image has brought me many little happy moments in the past week. I might try to find a screen cap of it. Just a little moment...but a happy one for me.

May 17th 2007

between your first and second post teapot i signed in to post that very thing. it was hilarious visually. with his little feet sticking out. now we know there is something funnier than a sumo suit. its a guy floating away in a sumo suit. and the line "go tell them i'm floating away." is funny and kind of haunting.

May 17th 2007

Well, without knowing what happens tonight, so far I award my Season 3 Dundee's as follows:

My LOL moment - Andy floating in the lake in the background of Michael's talking head (Beach Games)

Favorite Jim face - The raised eyebrows to Pam after Andy hits on her in Pig Latin (The Convict)

Best song - Jim & Andy, The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Product Recall)

Favorite literary reference - Dwight as Hester Pryne (The Coup)

A-W-E-S-O-M-E moment - The Pamfession, of course (Beach Games)

May 17th 2007

My main reason for wanting to rewatch the season this summer is so I can remember what I liked along the way. It's a big blank right now, like it simultaneously flew by and yet occurred in some distant past. Even when I think hard about it, I can't get past the Pamfession. She is just...yeah.

May 17th 2007 edited

I might try to find a screen cap of it.

You won't have to go far.

The best moment of the season...the one that comes to mind is Phyllis's client showing her and Karen the picture of him and his wife. Jim and Dwight's sales routine from the same ep stands out too. I think I might have to go with that, because of its tie-in with a year-long theme.

May 17th 2007

Okay, a few off the top of my head:

I have a different Sumo Andy moment: When Dwight returns for the re-match, and they start chest-bumping. Andy shouts, "Come on! COME ON!!!" It cracks me up every time I watch it.

The Phone Call from way back when. Ah, we were so young and innocent then.

Andy's cell ringer from -- what was it? "The Return"? I don't remember; it cracked me up anyway.

Cordially,

Future Dwight

May 17th 2007

Funniest LOL moment for me was "Lazy Scranton".

May 17th 2007

Funiest Moment: tie between 1) Future Dwight and 2) Vampire Jim standing behind Dwight at the water cooler, then leaving with this collar turned up.

I agree with this:

Favorite Jim face - The raised eyebrows to Pam after Andy hits on her in Pig Latin (The Convict)

Favorite Pam face: also a tie between 1) in the parking lot when she sees Karen touching Jim's back (just incredibly expressive) and 2) at Phyllis' Wedding right after Jim tells her that her dancing is cute (I wish someone would look at me like that).

May 17th 2007 edited

Some Dundies from me:

  • Single Funniest Moment - Michael's "Bros before hos" speech in A Benihana Christmas

I reserve the right to award more Dundies as they come to mind.

May 17th 2007

Okay, a little more organized-like:

Favorite Major Character Moment: Jim faxes Dwight. From himself. From the future.

Favorite Minor Character Moment: Angela's amusingly transparent story of "Kurt" and "Noel".

Damn, Beesly, You Got It Going On Award: Pam's loose-limbed run from the hot coals to the hot boy.

Favorite Jim Face: Karen's.

I Can't Believe Michael Just Said That Moment: Confessing to Pam that Carol's needs in bed were "foreign and scary" to him.

Favorite Jim & Dwight Moment that Didn't Make My Screen Name: "Meet my eyeline, Jim!"

The I Guess Ryan Is Funny, Even Though He's a Dick Award: "Doctor appointment, car trouble, plantar warts, granddad fought in World War II. Use your head, man. I keep mine in here. Look alive, Halpert. Welcome back."

Andy Reminds Me of Dwight, but Jim Hates Him More Award: ANDY: "I'm so horny." JIM: "Okay, I can't help you with that."

Comedia dell Arte Award for Creepiest of the Many Creeps in the Office: Creed by a hair. "There would be no way of knowing."

Second-Best Ep: "The Return"

Worst Ep: "Phyllis's Wedding"

Most Surreal Ep: "Ben Franklin"

Underrated: "The Convention"

Overrated: "Women's Appreciation"

Best Moment: Andy's meltdown, "The Return"

Worst Moment: Waffles, "The Coup" / Fart, "Phyllis's Wedding" (tie)

Most Surreal Moment: Roy and Kenny trash the bar, "Cocktails"

Most Interesting Relationship (major characters): Jim/Dwight

Most Interesting Relationship (minor characters): Oscar/Angela

Best Jim/Pam Moment: Phone conversation, "Initiation"

Thanks For Stopping By: Tony, Martin, the Kapours, Mose, Uncle Al

Unmemorable: Hannah, Kenny, Alan, Benihana Girls, Jerome Bettis

Don't Blame Me, Blame The Writers: David Denman

Don't Blame Us, Blame The Suits: Staples shredder infomercial, "The Merger"

Overexposed: Creed (no pun intended)

Underexposed: Meredith (no pun applicable)

Complex Character: Jan

WTF?: Michael tries to kiss Pam, "Diwali"

Best Conference Room Scene: Prison Mike, "The Convict"

Best Cold Open: Dwight's nude knife-wielding rampage caught on tape, "Back From Vacation"

Best Ending: Gaydar, "Gay Witch Hunt"

Best Line: "Lord, beer me strength."

May 17th 2007

Best Cold Open: "Product Recall". Jim as Dwight. Absolutely perfect.

Best Cold Close: "Product Recall". Dwight as Jim. Absolutely perfect.

Funniest Moment: Prison Mike in "The Convict". The accent kills me every single time.

Most Uncomfortable: The kiss during "Gay Witch Hunt". I think that's a no-brainer.

Favorite Half of the Season: The first half. I think the show lost a lot of steam during the six week break this year and didn't manage to really bring it back.

Favorite JAM Moment: The last-minute phone call from Jim to Pam during "The Initiation". It was so great with the initial awkwardness and then falling right back into a comfortable place. And that goodbye at the end (by Jim especially) was difficult to watch. Pam's speech was veeeery good, but unresolved (until tonight, hopefully).

Best Protagonist: Dwight. There seemed to be a lot of key storylines centered around him this season and because the Jim-Pam-Karen triangle was treading water most of the time, I really looked forward to seeing what Dwight would do next.

Best Supporting Character: Creed. We got a lot more of him this season and each revelation was stranger than the last. He's got the best one-liners in the whole show. I'm still not sure if he is a character or playing himself.

Favorite "Out of the Office" Episode: "The Convention". Equal parts funny, serious, and relatable. Didn't feel rushed as was "Beach Games" or a couple others.

More may come later. One hour to go until the finale!

May 17th 2007

Best solo prank: "... absolutely you should." (The Convict)

Most underappreciated solo prank: "It's a digital thermometer." (The Merger)

Best team prank: "I think we broke his brain." (The Return)

May 18th 2007

Best Jim & Pam Moment: "Are you free for dinner?"

I love the way they essentially ended the last episode of this season with Pam just radiating warmth and good feeling. And then as a little bonus, Ryan got a new job.

May 18th 2007

Most Heartwarming Moment - Pam's huge smile and her eyes welling up. "I'm sorry, what was the question?"

May 18th 2007

I wanted to add one, but still wanted JLJ's to be the last one in here for at least a few more moments.
Best Cold Open Line Immediately Before the Credits: "I miss Dwight. Congratulations, universe. You win."

Most Heartwarming Moment - Pam's huge smile and her eyes welling up. "I'm sorry, what was the question?"

May 18th 2007

Best Comedic Moment: "The Gambler" impromptu sing-along on the bus. I quote a reviewer from TVsquad when he says that was quite possibly the height of artistic triumph so far on display in The Office.

Best Dramatic Moment: The Pamfession.

Best Episode: Beach Games. See above. Plus it made me laugh more than any other episode this season.

Worst Episode: Gay Witch Hunt.

Worst Moment: The revival of Roy in Phyllis' Wedding.

Best Worst Painful Moment: Jim and Pam in the parking lot in The Merger..."We'll always be friends."

Best Cold Open: Future Dwight.

Best Tag: Dwight-as-Jim.

Superstar: Pam. Of course.

Supporting Nod: Angela.

Best Subplot: Dwight getting fired and rehired.

Best One-Liner: "Sorry, I have penises on the brain."

Best Talking Head: The whole "Phyllises don't grow on trees" rambling from Michael in Branch Closing.

Best JAM Moment: Is there any doubt? The ending of The Job. "Sorry, what was the question?"

More to come. Probably.

Oct 5th 2008

I really like the moment that it came to an end. That paved the way for Season 4 to start.

Oct 5th 2008

One of the funniest moments for me was when Michael marks the waitress's arm with a sharpie in ABC. The ending of TJ of course was the pinnacle of the entire series for me at that point, especially the sheer joy that Pam/Jenna exuded, but I also loved hearing Jim say yes in TR. (too bad things didn't progress logically from there, but that's a different discussion, one that's been talked to death.)

I actually liked S3 a lot. There were parts that were nebulose, but it was still just damned funny.

Oct 5th 2008

My main reason for wanting to rewatch the (S3) season this summer is so I can remember what I liked along the way. It's a big blank right now, like it simultaneously flew by and yet occurred in some distant past.

This was an interesting comment since I remember a lot of people saying this about S4 too.

Oct 5th 2008

Anyone remember anything special about S2? Why did we like that, anyway?

;-)

Oct 5th 2008

Roy giving Pam her the best sex ever.

Oct 5th 2008

Anyone remember anything special about S2? Why did we like that, anyway?

;-)

Are you talking about S3 again, mtt? I think you might have S2 on the brain.

Oct 5th 2008

Nope. I meant to say S2. I was just being ferocious. :-)

Oct 5th 2008

Gotcha.

So, this is your thread, mtt. What moments made S3 great? :-)

Oct 5th 2008

This is a great thread title. Better than most of the season, in fact. But that makes sense, since it's an S2 reference.

Oct 5th 2008

Major Story I'm Not Sure Whether I Like or Not - Michael & Jan getting romantically involved

I'm sure now. I don't like it.

Oct 5th 2008

Better than most of the season, in fact.

Silly Rabbit.

Who's old enough to get that reference?

Oct 5th 2008 edited

Was this the original thread title? It's doesn't seem familiar to me.

Silly Rabbit. Who's old enough to get that reference?

Trix are for kids?
