The Office: Branch Closing

”office-coup.jpg"The Scranton branch is closing -- supposedly. I mean we all knew it could never happen, because the show would no longer be "The Office," it would be "That Office."

But for one fleeting moment, everyone was jobless, and some were loving it more than others.

Michael was not in that group, and rightfully so. Can you imagine him hitting the pavement to find a new job? Actually, he seems to do pretty well with clients, is a master of the joke book, and makes big sales when it counts, so who knows?

He was slightly worried about the others too. After all, "there is no Stanley tree." Stanley didn't seem to mind though, as he was planning to take the severance and travel.

Another one that was thrilled: Ryan. He finally had an "out" with Kelly. Why he can't just break up with her, I'm not sure. Maybe he can never get a word in about it.

The entire warehouse was saved by Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration. However, that wouldn't save Pam, which seemed to bum out Roy. He compared his feelings to Cinderella's "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)." That's deep man!

Dwight and Michael headed to New York to try to save the branch. There was a real "Thelma & Louise" moment in there somewhere -- probably during the recap of the greatest moments in Dunder-Mifflin history.

Of course, the Scranton branch did not close; Stamford got the axe. This was all thanks to Josh stabbing the company in the back for a gig at Staples. Thankfully, Jim will not have to torture Dwight via fax anymore (how funny was that?). However, I can't imagine how he is going to take Jim being his new boss. That's right -- he was offered a second-in-command position and is taking it.

Another person that probably won't be too happy: Pam. Although she seemed frothing at the mouth to find out if Jim would be coming back, next week's preview looks like he brings his little friend Karen with him. I smell a good old-fashioned catfight!

Also, I wonder if Andy will be coming along. I think that he would be a hilarious addition to the show, but can Scranton handle two Dwights?

The question remains though: Who would have been out? Who would you have voted out? I am guessing Pam would have been kept, after Jan saw some potential in her back in the "Boys and Girls" episode. Other than that, I am not sure who would have been canned.

More importantly, did anyone else notice Michael's ringtone was "My Humps?" -- Rachel Cericola

Andy and Dwight need to be in the same office. This is something that *has* to happen.

I knew this was going to be a great episode the moment Jim revealed he's been sending Dwight faxes from "Future Dwight." Brilliant. -- mac

The very first time I saw Karen, I said to myself, "Self (cuz that's what I call me), there's your season 3 season-ending love triangle cliffhanger."

But who knows, maybe Pam and Karen will like each other...sorry...I'll stop that now.

And Dwight and Andy will most assuredly be forming the Official Dunder Mifflin (Scranton Chapter) We Hate Jim club. They'll probably even have shirts and hats and mugs made up.

The fax was hilarious.

I didn't like Karen at first because I was all for Jim and Pam. She's grown on me now. I don't see why Jim didn't just ask her out ages ago. I guess once burned twice shy.
