The Office: Business Ethics

office-pam.jpgSee the picture of Pam? Doesn't she look cute? Yeah... that's the only glimpse we will get of Pam this week. She phoned in this week's episode -- literally.

It's too bad, too. It was Ethics Day. "Let's get ethical?" OK -- maybe Pam was lucky. It was a good one, though. We learned this week that there is one way to turn off Michael Scott: By stating that Dunder-Mifflin is "not a family." When Holly said that, you could see Michael's world shatter.

The almost-lovers' spat came about because of a revelation during Ethics Day. Actually, there were a lot of revelations. The juiciest one came from Meredith, who has been sleeping with Bruce Myers in exchange for cheap supplies and Outback Steakhouse gift certificates. Other things we learned:

  • When Michael discovered YouTube, he didn't work for five days. Just five?

  • Kelly has downloaded illegal music to her office computer.

  • Angela reported Oscar to the INS.

  • Dwight is "a thief of joy" -- which was not a shocker!

Who knew Michael's offense would be so minor? It pales in comparison to all of those, as well as Ryan's little episode last season. Apparently, that ride was so good that Ryan hooked up with a girl that looked just like Joanna from "Survivor." Is it this Joanna??

So, back to Meredith. Her deal with Bruce has been going on once a month for six years. Michael thought it was no big deal, and she just likes "to sleep around." Not sure if that's true, but she does appear to like steak.

The side story was an offshoot to Ethics Day, where Dwight claimed that he never wasted company time. Jim and a stopwatch were out to prove this claim incorrect. He could sneeze and pee all while working. Unfortunately, he couldn't have sex with Angela on his desk.

As far as Holly and Michael go: There's still hope. How can these two not hook up? If they don't become a couple, it might turn out that they are from the same womb or something. They are just too much alike. You had to feel bad for Michael, pulling out his charms and twin lobsters to get Holly's attention. How very "business romantic" of him.

Michael may not know women, but he does know Dunder-Mifflin. It turned out that they love a good discount better than business ethics -- and possibly a steak as well. See you all next week. -- Rachel Cericola
