The Office: Episode 88 – Casual Friday


  • The Writer – Anthony Q. Farrell
  • Director – Brent Forrester
  • A brief synopsis – The staff struggles with the concept of proper idea of casual dress.  Michael is back and in a celebratory, and somewhat vengeful mood, and all the sales staff except Jim have a problem with this.
  • The best line – Creed: So hey, I’m want to set you up with my daughter.
    Jim: Oh, I’m engaged to Pam.
    Creed: I thought you were gay.
    Jim: Then why would you want to set me up with your daughter?
    Creed: I don’t know.
  • Next best line – Pam: [laughs] Boscov’s at the Steamtown Mall?
    Phyllis: It sure looked good on the mannequin.
    Pam: Well, you have good taste.
    Phyllis: Well, thanks. I sure wish I had more time to talk to my clients, though.
    Pam: What?
    Phyllis: Isn’t that what you said to a bunch of my clients when you were stealing them? That I didn’t have enough time for them?
    Pam: Oh, I, um…
    Phyllis: Close your mouth, sweetie. You look like a trout.
  • The best moment – Meredith’s casual attire confrontation.  The horror.
  • The best storyline – Michael’s favoritism of his two MSPC compadres was really well written, but so was the rest of the episode.
  • Notable guest appearance – None
  • Would Michael have been reprimanded? – I don’t think so.  This was really well written.
  • Grade – A

Excellent episode with many great moments.  To top it off, it was logical as well as funny.  Everyone gets a chance to shine.  This is another example of why it’s the best show on TV.  I love all of the scenes Erin is in.  She is a highlight.
