The Office: Episode 86 – Heavy Competition

  • The Writers – Ryan Koh
  • Director – Ken Whittingham
  • A brief synopsis – Dwight moves from ally to nemesis for Michael when Charles shows an interest in his performance.  Jim lets Andy believe that he is listening to Andy’s relationship advice.
  • The best line – Andy: What was up with Pam being all pushy and negative in there?
    Jim: I think she just didn’t want a crucifix cake.
    Andy: It scares me to see you going down a road that I went down.
    Jim: Am I going down a road?
    Andy: When I see her bossing you around like that, it just makes me wonder if this thing really has the legs to go the distance.
    Jim: It’s so scary how right the things you’re saying are. And you’re coming at it with almost no knowledge, so of course I trust your opinion on this.
  • Next best line – Michael: What is that thing that Dwight always says? Paper is the soil in which the seeds of business grow?
    Dwight: It’s not the soil! It’s the manure! Paper is the manure! On-time delivery is the soil! Aah! [runs into office]
  • The best moment – Dwight’s spin move on Schofield’s secretary.
  • The best storyline – Dwight versus Michael, especially the end at Schofield’s office with the notes on the cards..
  • Notable guest appearance – Mr. Schofield.
  • Would Michael have been reprimanded? – I think he got off light for getting information from Dwight.
  • Grade – A-

Michael and Dwight’s competition is goofy, but with great moments.  Andy and Jim’s deal plays out a little soon.  A somewhat myopic episode in its scope, but good, nonetheless.
