Meanwhile, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Meredith (Kate Flannery) haze the new HR woman, Holly (Oscar Nominee Amy Ryan). John Krasinski, Jenna Fischer, B.J.

This is so exciting!

So, I'm unsure if speculation in this thread on the basis of the episode description constitutes a spoiler.

May 9th 2008

Wow, a censored episode title. Good call James. It's generous to the nerks, of which I'm half of one, and it adds intrigue.

May 9th 2008

I see no problem with this. Speculate away.

May 9th 2008

Melora Hardin is listed as also starring, I wondered if we'd see an appearance from Jan before season's end.

I also find the casting of Amy Ryan quite intriguing. I only know her from her brief appearances on The Wire last season, I know she's done well in other things, but I think she's known primarily as a dramatic actress. How will she fit in a comedy? And will it be a one-time appearance, which would mean she'd probably quit or be fired from DM by the end of the episode?

May 9th 2008

So is the joy in Michael's heart just due to Toby leaving or are there other events that might make him happy. Say an engagement or the return of Fire Guy?

May 9th 2008

I'm pretty sure the joy in his heart directly relates to Toby's leaving. I think that's what that sentence was implying.

I'm moving this comment from the Job Fair discussion, now that this is up.

Clips at the end of the Job Fair episode about to be discussed

It did however show things such as them at a carnival? I'm assuming he sends Toby out in style? Also it did show Jan and Michael at said carnival? On a ferris wheel?

May 9th 2008

It looked like Amy Ryan on the ferris wheel.

May 9th 2008

Amy Ryan was great on Gone, Baby, Gone. I can't wait to see all her reaction shots to this crazy DM gang...specifically Michael.

Melora Hardin is listed as also starring, I wondered if we'd see an appearance from Jan before season's end.

Great catch! I didn't catch that. Hmm.

May 9th 2008

Yeah, that was Amy on the ferris wheel with Michael.

May 9th 2008

Ahhh. I was not paying enough attention at all.

May 9th 2008

Do you guys think maybe David Wallace will make an appearance in this episode?

May 9th 2008

I think he will, yes.

May 9th 2008

I don't. If he did they would of mentioned him in the "also starring" list.

May 9th 2008

I don't think they ever mention him in the "also starring" list when he's on but I'll go check OT to make sure.

May 9th 2008

Hmm, she doesn't have the official guest list for season 3 episodes up so I can't check.

May 9th 2008

I would like to see David Wallace put that douchehead/dickbag Ryan Howard in his place as part of the finale.

Can I get an amen?

I'm curious how Dwight and Meredith end up being the ones to haze--talk about a weird pair to put together.

Me too. Have they ever had any one on one interaction? Have they ever even mentioned each other in a conversation that doesn't involve her uterus? Or an inverted vagina?

Also, I think I have a bit of a crush on David Wallace.

ETA: The cold open is up on NBC.com. Is that fair game for discussion? Or too spoilery at this point?

I always have. He's just too cute.

I'm not a nerk but I am pretty sure they don't like this. We are talking about it in the spoiler thread, though.

eta: See nerks, we make fun of ya but we got your backs

May 9th 2008

I wouldn't get all excited about the "also starring" list. "Job Fair" had B.J. Novak and Paul Lieberstein in the "also starring" list and neither of them was in the episode.

May 9th 2008

I agree, those lists are always pretty generic.

I just got reminded of their interraction on Business School. Anyone recall a certain bat scene? One of my favorite lines happens after Dwight almost suffocates her, "You're welcome."

I'm reading my Entertainment Weekly and I giggled at their description for this episode:

The Office Season Finale: The only one happy about Toby leaving is Michael...and possibly Pam's left thigh.

May 10th 2008

and possibly Pam's left thigh.

Haha! That's great. Jim will probably be down with the Tobster leaving too.

May 10th 2008

Definitely.

May 10th 2008

I just watched the cold open again, and can't stop laughing. Is it Thursday yet??
