The Office: Did I Stutter?

stutter.jpgMichael needed ideas for writing in the wet concrete outside the office. On Jim's suggestion, he decided to put his face into the concrete -- after putting it in vaseline, that is. That kids, is the facehole.

It's hard to believe that after such master skills, tonight's events ensued.

During an office meeting, Stanley exploded, "Did I stutter?!?" Hence, the title of tonight's episode. It was hurled with great force in Michael's direction. Of course, he wrote off the whole thing as Stanley being a "beautiful, sassy, powerful Black man." Toby, on the other hand, wanted Michael to confront Stanley about his insubordination.

Can't blame Michael's wussiness on this one. It appears that no one wants to confront Stanley -- ever. No one except Dwight, that is.

Instead of dealing with the problem like a good branch manager, Michael turned to Darryl's "fluffy fingers." Apparently, that's how the Crips, Bloods and Latin Kings handle things; they tickle each other. Too bad that never went further than that conversation.

Instead, Michael decided that a "fake firing" is a better plan. Stanley reacted by threatening a lawsuit and ranting. When he found out the firing was a fake, he actually went off worse than the first round. Then came one of the greatest moments in "Office" history: Michael actually reacted! This was a rare and fleeting occasion. Once he got Stanley alone, he cried a bit and then learned that Stanley did not respect him. Big surprise there.

Michael accepted it, but laid down the law. It was nice to see Michael sort of stand up for himself -- or at least bust into a Rodney Dangerfield/Jeff Foxworthy/Seinfeld routine. I know there was at least one other comedian in there, if not more. Who did I miss?

There was no major secondary plotline this week. However, there was plenty going on in the office -- it was nice to see a whole episode that took place inside Dunder-Mifflin. With the writers' strike, it had seemed like it had been a while.

Ryan also stopped by to continue his douchery. He gave a quick warning to Jim about his job performance. He also looked like he had come straight from a night of clubbing. Did that have to do with Pam? Her hot glasses? How long until his drug problem catches up with him and we see a "very special" episode?

Other than that, Andy sold his car cheaply to a very persuasive Dwight -- who then tried to flip the car for profit. We also saw another Jim proposal -- sort of. Also, did Angela have her baby yet? The camera angles are obvious. -- Rachel Cericola


Best Line: "I'd like to put the piano in front of Pam without her glasses and see what happens. I'd also like to see her topless." -- Creed

Best Moment: Michael's comedy routine.

Best Revelation: Jim is an Eagles fan.
