The Office: Episode 93 – The Promotion


  • The Writer and Director – Jennifer Celotta
  • A brief synopsis – Michael and Jim wrestle for control as the “benefit” of having two bosses takes hold.  Pam works at getting people to give money as a gift for the wedding.  David Wallace puts a big decision in their hands.  Dwight, meanwhile, goes after Jim like a shark in the water.
  • The best line – Oscar: Look, it doesn’t take a genius to know that any organization thrives when it has two leaders. Go ahead, name a country that doesn’t have two presidents. A boat that sets sail without two captains. Where would Catholicism be without the popes?
  • 2nd Best Line – Kelly: I love rivalries– Michael or Jim, Paris or Nicole, Heidi or L.C. It’s so much fun. But I guess if I’m really thinking about it and answEring your question honestly, I’d have to go with L.C. Heidi’s a bad friend, and her skin is terrible.
  • 3rd Best Line – Creed: Hey, why haven’t we ever, um…
    Meredith: We have.
  • The best moment – The 1st Best Line
  • The best storyline – Pam trying to glean cash from her office mates.  Been there, felt that.
  • Notable guest appearance- None
  • Would Michael have been reprimanded? – n/a
  • Grade – B+

This storyline plays out very slowly.  We all know what is happening is a bad idea, but what we don’t know yet is that it indicates that there is something seriously wrong with the Dunder Mifflin business model.  Oscar knows what is wrong, though.  Follow Oscar.  Nice to see Dwight freed from his competition with Jim and just playing spoiler.  The position Pam is in is a solid nod to the core audience of the show, and let me tell you, it is not rich people.  Solid, if unspectacular episode with some very good lines and a lot of okay lines.
