The Office: Episode 77 – Prince Family Paper

  • The Writer – B.J. Novak
  • Director – Asaad Kelada
  • A brief synopsis – David Wallace puts Michael on a project to investigate Prince Family Paper.  He brings Dwight along.  The rest of the staff of Dunder Mifflin is then caught up in a hot-or-not debate about Hillary Swank.  She’s hot, by the way.
  • The best line – Michael: You know, I will be honest with you… about something. Where we used to live, our paper supplier had a lot of big clients and I just didn’t feel like a priority. So I guess my question [reaches for paper in his pocket with questions on it] for you would be [reading off sheet] how many clients do you have?
    Prince Grandfather: About 80.
    Michael: Really? That many? This doesn’t seem like a very big operation.
    Prince Grandfather: It’s just me, my wife and my son.
    Michael: Ah, so when did you set up shop?
    Prince Grandfather: I opened this place after I came back from Vietnam.
    Michael: Oh Vietnam, I hear it’s lovely .
    Prince Grandfather: [muted] Mmhmm. [shrugs]
  • The best moment – The intro, where Dwight follows the red wire up the telephone pole.
  • The best storyline – Uh, the intro?  I hated both other storylines.
  • Notable guest appearance – Dan Bakkedahl is the son, Roger Prince Jr.
  • Would Michael have been reprimanded? – I think there is grounds for a lawsuit for fraud.  Roger Prince seems pretty dense for a Vietnam Vet.
  • Grade – C-

A below average episode that is boring on the office side and unnecessarily sinister on the Michael side.  No amount of good lines (and there aren’t many) could make it better.
