The Office: Crime Aid

Phyllis-Smith.jpgA week has passed and Michael and Holly have had their date. In fact, this episode put us in the midst of their third date, which is "the one where you traditionally have sex."

So in preparation, Michael was planning to have soup or something light. His plans were thwarted, however. Holly lured him back into the building with her wild HR ways, and they began making out in the stairwell. The end result: Sex... twice.

Those two may have used protection, but one thing that didn't receive the same courtesy: Dunder-Mifflin. They forgot to lock up, and the office was robbed blind. To make good, Michael organized Crime Aid (hence the title).

The big lure of this in-office auction was a pair of Bruce Springsteen tickets. Of course, Michael would never have Springsteen tickets. The main reason? Out of his favorite Springsteen songs...

  • Three were Huey Lewis songs

  • One was Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car"

  • Another was "Short People"

Other auction items included hugs from Phyllis, beers with the warehouse guys, Kevin's tax services, yoga lessons from Holly, the security guard's CDs, and simply "Creed." Then, David Wallace showed up to offer a weekend at his place on Martha's Vineyard. It probably brought in some good cash, but also a potential problem -- David witnessed the romance between our latest Dunder-Mifflin duo. Maybe that will tone the goofiness down a notch.

Speaking of goofy (in a scary way), Dwight was making a knife. Maybe it's a wedding gift for Angela. More likely it's to drive through Andy's heart, which will inevitably get broken. True, Dwight gave Angela an ultimatum and she did not respond, but you can't deny the magic. After all, Angela did introduce Dwight to:

  • Pasteurized milk

  • Sheets

  • Monotheism

  • Presents on your birthday

  • Preventative medicine

According to Phyllis, Dwight is a risk. With a wooden knife, perhaps. Or to Phyllis, who had become like his therapist. Dwight vying for Phyllis' auction hug in the end was very cute. Of course, though, no one can top Bob Vance. He won the hug for $1,000, which he probably thought was a bargain.

Very little Jim and Pam tonight. Remember them? The other engaged couple? It looks like the writers don't want us to O.D. on Jam this season. Maybe that's why they sent her away. Maybe Jenna Fischer is filming a movie. Either way, it was nice to see Roy give Jim his blessing -- and make him slightly paranoid in the process. Could the distance destroy that duo before they hit the alter? Doubtful. See you next week. -- Rachel Cericola
