Oh, and Daryl is fucking with Michael again. :lol:

Jim has never been a bad employee. He probably would have had Ryan's job if he hadn't turned it down.

I really wanted Michael to show some backbone to Stanley.
I know he has it in him, but he never shows it...

Loved the Dwight/ Andy car thing too...Brilliant.

And Ryan..I can't WAIT for his downfall...You know it's coming.

Me, too! My wife interviewed him yesterday - he's got like a PhD in City Planning or something and just decided to give acting a shot a few years ago on a whim.

Angela and Dwight are the new Pam and Jim. Totally. Dwigela (Angelight?) 4 Eva.

The proposal last week was OK - this week's was not. I had no idea what either of them were talking about at first.

I have never met a woman who would find this funny more than once - and probably not even once. I am sure that after a while it would be intrepreted as (1) evidence that he does not take marriage seriously and (2) teasing and cruel.

He already bought the ring. That's pretty serious.

Which is why I say "already."

The first was okay. The second time I just made me hope that this wasn't going to be the new running gag.

And while I have no doubt that Jim's serious about marriage, it's still kinda mean. :p

Well they haven't even dated a year yet...and her previous relationship went on for quite a while without moving forward...she probably takes it for exactly what it is, a joke. She was even playfully elbowing him in the meeting when he "proposed" that she get him a cup of coffee.

If anything, my guess is that when Jim proposes she says no. She's liking the relationship right now and but I don't think she's ready for the next step.

There is a big difference between joking on someone and joking with someone. Pam's reaction in the meeting plainly shows that she's in on the joke and doesn't really think he's about to propose. Which is why it will blindside her when it actually happens and she will panic and say no.

Yeah, but the constant "fake" proposals sorta negate this. Plus, she doesn't know he bought the ring, does she?

To me, it seems like Jim's jokes are him trying to test the water. Their relationship has been...interesting over the years, and his jokes are him attempting to see if she does actually want to marry him. I think it's him being a little bit on the cautious side, after years of him being in love with her, but her not returning it, from her long relationship with Roy.

Yeah, that's a good point. :p

However, I guess I'm more concerned that it's just not as funny as when both of them ganged up on Dwight. I think I'm just getting nostalgic for season one.

I would agree with this, especially after the way he told the camera crew about the ring. He seemed proud but cautious.

Nah...if he were being cautious he wouldn't have bought the ring a week after their first date.

Well, Jim knows what he feels and what he wants. That's why he got the ring.

But since he's been burned before by her, he wants to play it a little bit closer to the vest this time. And because of her initial reaction when they were talking about things, he is using that to determine how she feels and what she may or may not be ready for. This is how he is being cautious.

So does anyone else think she'll say no when he asks?

I'm not sure what she'll do.

I'd like to think she'd say "yes", rather than go through the whole trashing of a relationship storyline that has happened countless times before in other series.

I'd like to see them be happy but save that moment more towards the end of the series.

I can see her saying no, but the relationship surviving.

Well, I can see her saying "not yet" as opposed to "no" and Jim ultimately being happy with that. I'm sure he'd be understanding about her not wanting to jump straight from one engagement to another.

So I liked the episode. It's about time Stanley blew his top. And I liked the rant about Michael being a bad boss and how Michael eventually handles it. It's sad really because I think Michael is a very sympathetic character. On paper he should be an awful person, but you can see that while he may be inept or even borderline moronic at times he has a good heart.

And I am loving the new twist with Jim and the Temp (he'll always be the temp to me) getting ready to have it out. Should be interesting to see how it plays out.

I really like how the show keeps chugging along with good episodes even when not about the Jim and Pam relationship. You could see them getting married and the show still being good after that.

It's really a great ensemble show now.

Yeah, they do a good job keeping Michael from being utterly ridiculous. And he did, in the end, handle things exactly as he should have.

That's what I kind of like about him. The guy does have a good heart. But he is still such a child, and not only that, but a lonely and awkward child who just wants to fit in and be liked. The only way Michael can feel appreciated is by overcompensating for it by trying to be the fun person and get as much of the attention as he craves while gaining the approval from those in his life.

He becomes hurt because he thinks everything he experiences, does, and says should be experienced in the way he sees it, but that is of as a child would, not as an adult.

I think the greatest snapshot of that was evidenced in the video when he was a little kid and you just felt his loneliness and awkwardness.

That was and very much is Michael.

This is probably why Michael was such a good salesman because he jumped through hoops to make buyers happy.

But that mentality is not good for a management position. This is why he's such an awful manager. Michael's a follower trying to pretend he's a leader.

Agreed.

They've shown it several times now at how good of a salesperson he is (to surprisingly successful levels), but is just completely inept as a manager.
