The Office: Conflict Resolution

”office_dwight2.jpg"The episode starts off with Jim overhearing some of Pam's wedding preparations. This is also where we find out some other interesting tidbits:

• Dwight orders deer urine over the Internet.
• Angela is not invited to Pam's wedding (although later gets a hand-delivered save-the-date).
• Kevin is in a "rockin'" band.

Dwight notes how bad the office security is. Most notable line: "Could you imagine if I was deranged?" I think we all can. Apparently his take on the security situation is not half as bad as the office's morale. Michael decides to step on Toby's toes and act as referee for a bout between Angela and Oscar.

Angela loves her poster of babies playing saxophones. What deranged person wouldn't? I have to side with Oscar on this one; it is insanely creepy. Michael's solution? Have the poster made into a T-shirt and Oscar will wear it. That way, Oscar doesn't have to see it and Angela can enjoy it.

After such a successful outcome, Michael decides to take over the rest of the office's grievance pile, which is obviously too large for even the world's biggest in-box. This doesn't include the "file" Toby keeps under his desk just for Dwight's casual complaint Fridays -- as well as the filing cabinet kept for complaints just about Michael.

Michael then proceeds to upset the entire office by shouting out complaints that various office members have made -- and who made them. A few of the highlights:

• Creed has a distinct old man smell.
• Kevin has made sexually suggestive comments to Angela (who is asked to reciprocate as a "punishment" for Kevin).
• Jim says that Dwight tried to kiss him (OK -- that was made up, we think).

There were so many hilarious Dwight moments in this episode, I could barely keep up. I was too busy crying, in fact. Dwight refusing to smile for his picture for fear of looking like "a chimpanzee," his giant ID, his complaint that his middle name was Curt, "not Fart" … but that's just the tip of the iceberg of things that Jim has done to Dwight -- all of them equally hilarious. Jim claimed that all of them didn't sound funny when read together. How wrong he was.

No surprise that, in the end, it was Jim that complained about Pam's wedding plans. What was sort of a surprise was how Jim applied for the transfer. Now really, I don't even know how they could make that a cliffhanger, because I just don't ever see it happening, do you? -- Rachel Cericola

Oscar is right. That poster kills art.
