This was the best episode since the wedding! Dwight steals the entire episode.

"You can't impersonate a police officer, Dwight." :rofl:

dwight was awesome in this episode. throwing weapons out of his car as he's being pulled over by the cops, breaking into pam and jim's house, remodeling the kitchen, and best of all sleeping in pam and jim's bed.

This episode encapsulated a lot of what I love about the Office, but also much of why I'm starting to not love it so much. The stuff with Jim and Pam and the baby managed to be funny and genuinely sweet most of the time. There were some other good subplots too, but Dwight and Michael have become such complete cartoons... The stuff with Dwight and the house just seemed stupid to me.

With 2 children, I was laughing at Jim throughout most of it, because I know the feeling! The lactation specialist cracked me up.

I thought it was a pretty weak episode. The wedding episode was much better primarily because it featured more of the side characters. I think the show's funnier when there's less Michael/Jim/Pam/Dwight and more of everyone else.

Dwight finds mold in the house, Pam and Jim are going to be bringing the baby home, you KNOW he won't leave that alone. Completely in character. Although, I thought maybe he'd have it all done and it'd look fantastic, so it'd be a present to them when they came home.

My only problem with this episode is that the two half hours felt very disjointed. If I remember correctly, it was planned as two episodes and probably would have worked better that way.

"I'll have to ask Jim where they got the sheets."

This episode just kind of reinforces my theory that Dwight, deep down, actually likes Jim. I was worried this season that the whole "evil plan" would lead to something big happening between the two, so I was happy to see Jim step down on his own, because I think that their relationship is a pretty important part of the show. Ever since Dwight intervened in the fight with Roy, I've belived that he actually considers Jim his friend.

The kitchen remodeling was one of Dwight's finest moments.

Well, in my opinion, the wedding's pretty hard to top. It's one of my favorite episodes. This was the best once since it aired, though, in my opinion.

There was a lot of side character stuff with Andy, Erin and Kevin.

I am thoroughly convinced that Creed is the Scranton Strangler.

I could also see it being Ryan.

The bit where Jim and Pam realized that they had been breast feeding the wrong baby was the hardest I've laughed at this show in a while.

I agree that Dwight is becoming a little stale. I think it would be a great turn if he and Jim started to become friends. The few episodes where the two of them have had to work together and been less adversarial (Kelly's birthday party, last season's finale at the volleyball game) have been great. I'd like to see more.

Definitely.

You left out he slept in their bed, naked! :sick:

Yes, the greatest Office humor is the uncomfortable humor. That was spectacular. :lol:

And the Erin/Michael/Andy/Kevin stuff was very funny too.

It doesn't get mentioned enough, but the way Ryan has been choosing to dress recently is hilarious. I liked that there's no explanation given for it other than Ryan's normal doucheyness.

YES! One of the best random additions this season! I love it!

I'm betting the strangler thing was just a one episode joke, though.

Yeah, that would be too dark of a turn for THE OFFICE to take. Though I could maybe see it being handled in the next series of webisodes—not Ryan or Creed actually being the Scranton Strangler, but maybe being suspected of being the Scranton Strangler.

I've never actually watched any of the webisodes.

Best part of the episode.

Oh, and Jim talking to the nurse was hilarious too. She was NOT amused by his antics,

having just had a kid with my wife back in Nov, i was impressed by how real the episode was:

-I got that same bird balloon michael had, albeit a boy version
-the stocking cap for the baby is the exact one they use in hospitals (pink/blue stripes)
-the baby looked like a baby, it wasnt a 6 mo old they dressed up although i am sure it wasnt a newborn
-The rooming together, my buddy had o do that, it sucks
-the latching, it isnt easy and tv makes it seem like it just happens
-really glad the pushing wasnt instant, that always annoys my wife who pushed for over 3 hours
-The ackwardness with the staff/nurses. that is exactly how it is. Everyone isnt nice, they are there to do a job. They dont always get humor or enjoy that you dont know stuff, they are real people


the episode felt extremely real which is why i like this show, Jim and pam are like a real couple. Real couples fall in love, get married have kids. They dont marry 5 times have a kid as friends then get together. (ie. friendS)

Yeah, it really was. Until they were discharged, cause that part was just ridiculous. They had someone come explain EVERYTHING, and come checked our car seat base to make sure it was right.

My wife was lucky, both of our boys latched no problem.

I've also never seen the husband have to sleep in the bed with her, they've always had the pull-out chair/couch thing.

I loved this episode! Especially the parts about Jim & Pam with the baby for the first time.

Yeah, I got flashbacks from this episode. We had to go through the whole lactation consultant thing too with our first kid. Luckily it wasn't a guy, though. I can't imagine I'd handle that as well as Jim did. :)

I don't know if The Office and Parks & Rec are in some kind of lull, or if it's just that they've been so outclassed by Community the past couple months.
