MICHAEL'S 'GOLDEN TICKET' IDEA CAUSES QUITE A STIR- Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) causes a huge problem in the office when he comes up with the idea to put "golden tickets" into packages of paper for clients to redeem for discounts. Andy (Ed Helms), Jim (John Krasinski) and Pam (Jenna Fischer) give Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) differing advice on wooing a woman. Rainn Wilson, Leslie David Baker, Kate Flannery, Mindy Kaling, Angela Kinsey, Phyllis Smith, Oscar Nunez, Creed Bratton and Paul Lieberstein also star.

I wonder if Michael favors the Gene Wilder or Johnny Depp Willie Wonka.

I bet he likes the Gene Wilder one more. Because that's the one I like more. Also it's better.

What's a step above extremely excited?

Tit-illated?

Good call, VG.

Truthbone speaks truth.

gbone knows the crap out of movies.

I don't like either of the Willy Wonka movies so sue me.

Invention, my dear friends, is 93% perspiration, 6% electricity, 4% evaporation, and 2% butterscotch ripple.

Totally better.

Careful: someone here is a lawyer.

Wrong thread, my b...moved to spoilers

Gene Wilder's version has more heart. It's a better story. The Johnny Depp version is far closer to the author's original intent, however.

Mar 10th 2009

That's a good way to put it, Anque. Roald Dahl was a strange, strange man.

Mar 10th 2009

Thanks. And yes, he was.

Mar 10th 2009

It was the missing n in his name. He never got over it.

Mar 10th 2009

Ah ha! I think you might have nailed it, CGB!

That is the correct answer.

Was all the creepy Michael Jackson/daddy didn't love me stuff in Dahl's book? Because I don't remember that.

Mar 10th 2009

No, I don't think Dahl ever mentions Michael Jackson. I'm pretty sure.

Mar 10th 2009

He preferred the Jackson 5 to Michael's solo career.

Mar 11th 2009

Who doesn't? Right?

Mar 11th 2009

Billie Jean was a great song...so was Dirty Diana...

Say what you will about MJ, but that foo sure knows how to dance.

Mar 11th 2009 edited

I'd never heard Dirty Diana until someone sang it on American Idol last night. Don't judge me.

Mar 11th 2009

They were really harsh on a lot of people last night who didn't deserve the harshness. And that guy that they threw all the praise on...I think I actually winced and turned away from the television several times when he was 'singing'.

Mar 11th 2009

I know, me too, Anque! Anoop kind of reminds me of the Nard Dog because he's kind of preppy looking and sings on an acapella group at his university.

I'd never heard Dirty Diana until someone sang it on American Idol last night.

I'm there with ya, MISS.

Mar 11th 2009 edited

Yep, I like Anoop. I wanted to tell the judges to Beat It last night.

Mar 11th 2009

Yay, more AI watchers! I've been afraid to admit it...

Also, I am in love with Danny Gokey.

Zing!

Mar 11th 2009

Hah! have you seen his NC acapella group performaces on youtube? He is really good in those.

Also, I am in love with Danny Gokey.

I thought he did good last night, minus the dorky dancing. You guys are going to think I'm carazy but I think Lil Rounds, or whatever her name is, is so over-rated. I mean she's good not great, like the judges keep saying.
