The Office: Duel

Andy-Dwight.jpgRule 17: Don't turn your back on bears, men you have wronged, or the dominant turkey during mating season. -- Dwight Shrute

Hooray! It's been a while since we've had a new episode. In "Office" time, it's only been 17 days -- at least since Dwight and Angela have been having their affair behind Andy's back. In case you might have forgotten, Dwight and Angela are actually married now.

Of course, everyone knows about the affair... everyone except Andy. "Eventually he'll figure it out, when their kids have giant heads and beet-stained teeth," Jim said. Well, he didn't have to wait that long. Michael spilled the beans -- as he was driving away.

Normally, I would chalk this up to Michael inserting himself into a situation where he does not belong. However, this whole triangle actually does effect office morale. Also, that storyline had gone on long enough.

So when Andy confronted Angela, she came clean (eventually). Now the two men needed to duel because, well... it's the title of this week's episode.

Jim confiscated all of Dwight's weapons. However, he should have taken Andy's car keys, because the scorned lover tried to (slowly) run over Dwight with his Prius. The entire duel came to a halt once the two discovered Angela had actually slept with both her fiance and her lover. Go figure.

Tonight's secondary plot involved David Wallace. Usually the guy is a bit of a pill, but tonight he was smooching up to Michael for some business tips. See, the Scranton branch is the only one that seems to be doing well these days. Unfortunately, the only thing Michael could share was a bit of rambling and his love for free pasta.

Other memorable moments:

  • New Year, new candy: Hot Tamales. That doesn't give me hope for 2009.

  • The record-holder for running in front of the radar detector in front of the building now stands at 13 mph (unless you count Michael running alongside a car).

  • Angela is both "eager and flexible."

Also, Meredith had some choice revelations: Her neighbor got murdered, she's had two guys fight over her (over who gets to hold the camcorder), and she also staked a claim on the duel's "loser." We wish there had been a bit more Creed, but it was nice to see her get some good lines in. See you next week. -- Rachel Cericola

One tiny correction-Dwight and Angela are only engaged as of that episode, not married! Sorry, I'm a natural editor, and a hardcore Office fan lol.

Wait... didn't the German minister marry the two of them? Dwight said Andy signed as a witness... and told Angela he had been telling her to take German, right? I did miss the last episode before the holidays.

Angela had the marriage annulled when she found out that Dwight had tricked her.

Poor Andy. But good on both him and Dwight for dumping Angela once they figured out what she was doing. Bad Angela! BAD!

Best line of the night went to Creed: "You are welcome!" I nearly collapsed a lung on that.

Thanks Barb! I guess I missed that. I did a lot of entertaining before the holidays and was mad I didn't record the show! Obviously, I was mad for good reason!!
