Andy promises to triple the sales. And Pam and Angela are both having babies, so they bond over food, nausea, and having to pee every ten minutes.

Right?

And Pam and Angela are both having babies

Yes, this isn't that unlikely. They have had their moments of not being hostile over the years. Mostly when Pam was being helpful regarding Bobblehead Joe.

Sep 26th 2011

Something tells me Angela and Pam don't become baby buddies.

Sep 29th 2011

Since there is hardly ever an episode any more in which Andy's genitalia are not mentioned, perhaps he and Pam bond over the fact that her new baby will have male genitalia.

My biggest question is whether this thread will have over one page of comments.

Saboteur! I'm going to kill you for real.

Sep 29th 2011

Were you saying saboteur or sandwich?

Sep 29th 2011

Why does Daoust suddenly look like Douche to me?

Sep 29th 2011

Suddenly?

Boom! Doucheroasted!

I got nothing.

Really ,nothing? I like the ensemble feel a lot. And this had its moment or two.

I do really like the way they're using Spader. And this line made the entire episode worth it to me re Hamnard: "I've already lost interest." Exactly, Bobbie Brokestate.

It felt like eight stories going at once and none of them went anywhere. What was the point of Darryl's wife? It wasn't objectively awful like The Christening or Scott's Tots, but just a bunch of empty calories.

Sep 30th 2011

Still less than 1 page.

Sep 30th 2011

It was pretty unremarkable. The whole night of TV, really.

Sep 30th 2011

Wait, this already aired? I seriously thought this was coming up, and you guys were talking about a promo or something. It's already Friday? Jeeze.

Sep 30th 2011

My wife was watching the first half last night for the first time in a while, and it was embarrassingly bad. Kevin's talking style and Darryl's ex-wife had my wife looking at me like "what the hell was that?"

The show did get better in the second half. After she went to bed. I don't think she'll be watching it any more.

Sep 30th 2011

My husband is pretty much the same way. Sometimes it's almost embarrassing to watch it with him, since I was the one that got him into the show in the first place. I get that look a lot now, too, Jinx.

Sep 30th 2011

That's OK...she watches the Real Housewives series, so she don't have crap on me.

Sep 30th 2011

Mine watches Two and a Half Men, so...yeah.

Sep 30th 2011

Exceot for Whitney, yep.

This

The show did get better in the second half.

And this. It seems like they've decided to keep writing Michael Scott stories, and just substitute Andy. Although Andy isn't Michael. Michael wouldn't have gotten that tattoo.

Sep 30th 2011

I really thought it was going to be a Cornell tattoo. Who wouldn't want that on their ass?

Sep 30th 2011

Exceot for Whitney, yep.

Whitney is everything that is wrong with Earth.

Sep 30th 2011

Cornell

Never heard of it.
