The Office: Traveling Salesmen

”office-teams.jpg"Say it ain't so -- but I'm going to, so consider yourself warned about this spoiler -- Dwight is a goner. How could this be?

It be because Angela couldn't come clean to the office about her relationship with Dwight. She also couldn't make a deadline. That's actually where the whole thing started.

Basically, corporate didn't get Scranton's tax forms. But instead of Angela taking the fall, Dwight stepped up for his lady love and drove the paperwork to New York himself. However, the early-morning trip gave Andy the fodder he had been waiting for to get Dwight out of the picture -- or at least the Dunder-Mifflin office.

Andy was lucky that the opportunity came up, because his sales skills certainly weren't impressing anyone.

This was shown when the office was divided up into teams for sales calls. Andy chose Michael, Phyllis took Karen, Stanley picked Ryan (his second choice after "pass"), and Dwight and Jim are teamed up by default. The photo of Dwight and Jim's last setup was priceless.

Andy spent his time kissing Michael's ass and making Dwight look like a bad employee. Karen and Phyllis made a pitstop at the beauty salon. The two end up looking like $5 whores (and that might be a steep price). Ryan wanted Stanley to grade his performance. And apparently, Dwight must rock out before every meeting to bad hair band music. Does anyone know what song and/or band that was?

Michael didn't seem too impressed with Andy's selling skills. No one was. After all, Michael seems to be very anti-Michael when he is selling. Unfortunately, Andy is just Andy. It's funny -- but would you do business with the guy?

The extremely bad makeover twins made their sale. Apparently, Phyllis knows her clients' fashion sense well. What she doesn't know is her co-workers' personal business, so she spilled the beans about Pam and Jim to Karen.

Ryan ended up making an ass of himself. He asked Stanley for the lead, but little did he realize that the company is African American, which caused Ryan to stammer like Stanley's 6-month-old niece (his words, sort of). I thought that was kind of mean. The kid was just trying to learn. Besides, wasn't his training time with Dwight punishment enough?

Jim and Dwight actually made a good selling team, playing off one another like they actually were buddies!

So a toll booth receipt in Dwight's car (which assumably was open -- I can't imagine that Andy is that smart or talented) ended up being his downfall. When Andy brought the goods to Michael's attention, he took it as mutiny, as Dwight had a track record. After a quick call to Jan, some of his suspicions were confirmed. Dwight had indeed been there, although she didn't know why except for that he was representing "Beeswax, Not Yours, Inc."

Instead of revealing their love, Dwight took the fall. Why all the secrecy, Angela?

I am guessing that it's not the last we've seen of Dwight, although it could be the last time we'll ever see Dwight hug Jim. I'm hoping that Andy's scheme blows up in his face, but doesn't make him the next castaway. Something tells me he will pay though. Did you catch the look on Angela's face? I am afraid... very afraid.

The look that Angela gave Andy at the end of the show scared me. And I wasn't even the recipient. And she's in Scranton. And on TV. Methinks Andy's poking a sleeping mama grizzly bear.

I knew that I knew what it was but I couldn't remember the name. So I checked another site. (Sorry.) The song that Dwight was listening to was Mötley Crüe's "Kickstart My Heart".

Ha! Thanks for checking that out. Now I can sleep tonight. Even funnier than I thought...

Dwight must really like Motley Crue. This week he listened to "Kickstart My Heart" and in "Performance Review" he listened to "Wildside".

Andy stole Dwight's car keys and broke into his car. Dwight isnt dumb enough to leave his car unlocked.

This is just kind of totally disconnected to the blogversation, but I saw Rainn Wilson interviewd on the red carpet for the Golden Globes, and he was asked what kind of name 'Rainn' was. He said that his parents were hippie flower-children in the late sixties. Then she asked him what his middle name was, and he said Dietrich, named after some composer or something.

It was a very Dwight moment.
