The Office: Gay Witch Hunt

”office-dundies.jpg"After a summer of waiting to see what would happen between Jim and Pam, it was no surprise that nothing happened. Well, that's not entirely true. Roy and Pam didn't get married -- but they did get five weeks worth of chicken and fish lunches.

Is anyone surprised that Dwight cuts his nails in the office? That was not surprising. However, what was surprising was that Ryan is now a full-time employee.

Another not-so-shocking revelation: Michael calls everyone "faggy." Unfortunately, Oscar is gay and doesn't appreciate it. Michael feels bad though; after all, he knows that "you don't call retarded people retards… you call your friends retards when they're acting retarded."

Being the sensitive guy that Michael is, he outs Oscar to the entire office. Everyone seems cool with it (Kevin is downright giddy) -- except Angela, although she does acknowledge that she sometimes watches "Will & Grace."

Upon finding out about Oscar, Michael is on a gay witchhunt -- hence the title of this episode. Now Michael is determined to find out who else in the office might be gay. Great moment: Dwight's reaction when Michael asks him if he could picture Angela with another woman.

Angela is definitely NOT gay. In fact, she finds the need to use hand sanitizer around Oscar -- that is when Meredith isn't eating it.

After all of the hoopla, Michael calls another office-wide meeting to clear the air. Of course, all goes poorly, and Oscar has to come out to the entire office. Apparently Creed sort of came out as well… based on some of his antics from the '60s.

Another little tidbit: Phyllis is not only getting married to Bob the refrigeration guy, but she also went to high school with Michael -- and people thought he was gay.

Oscar ends up quitting and telling off Michael, but then feels bad about it and embraces Michael as he weeps. Dwight takes it as Michael is now gay. And Michael didn't exactly sway that opinion the other way by KISSING OSCAR in front of the rest of the office.

Don't worry kids: Oscar isn't going anywhere. However, he did parlay the day's events into a company car and a three-month paid vacation.

Jim missed a lot today, as he was transferred to Stanford. Here we are introduced to a new cast of characters, including El Helms and Chip Esten. Unfortunately, his new co-workers don’t seem to appreciate his antics (or the fact that he has name). Wonder how long that's going to last. -- Rachel Cericola

My chest still hurts from laughing so hard. Dwight and his Gaydar detector nearly killed me ... and that Roy mug shot looked like it was lifted straight from the Smoking Gun!

I knew I should have worked the gaydar into my write-up. I wonder if Jim did buy it at Brookstone.

my God... I didn't think it was possible for a show to be that funny... It's amazing how two kisses can be so different. Pam and Jim's kiss was sweet and romantic...but Michael and Oscar's? That was the single most uncomfortable, hilarious, gut-wrenching kisses I've ever seen.

And the commentary from the people at the other office... the calculator... wow!

The look on Jims face when the guy hit kicked that trash can was priceless I can still see it and I laugh about it when it comes to mind
