The Office: Episode 153 – Tallahassee

  • The Writer – Daniel Chun
  • Directed by – Matt Sohn
  • A brief synopsis – Dwight competes with Packer and other Dunder Mifflin coworkers trying to impress Sabre special projects president, Nellie Bertram.   Nothing can stop him, even appendicitis.  Andy finds a liking for reception.
  • The best line – Dwight (reading the wall in Jim’s room that says in red “It was Dwight”): Oh, no, no, no.  It wasn’t me.  Gotta find Luwanda at the Alcohol Club.
  • 2nd best line – Packer: Quick Query Halpert.
    Jim: No way!
    Packer: Still queer?
    Dwight (looking resolute, if surprised): Packer.
    Packer: You can’t put me down.  Too strong.
    Packer (to camera): Yeah.  Dwight and Jim tried to get me fired.  But I landed on my feet down here in Florida.  You see, this cat’s got nine lives…and a nine inch- 
  • The best moment – Erin falls asleep reading the mattress tag.
  • The best story line – Jim decides to emulate Stanley.  Nice change of pace.
  • Notable guest appearance – Packer! Oh, and Catherine Tate is back as Nellie Bertram.
  • Grade – C+

Too much Dwight with a ridiculous story line.  Making him such an unrealistic buffoon does the character and the show no favors.  Not at all a fan of Tate, so her lines are wasted on me.  Andy’s effectiveness as a receptionist is a nice twist, and an interesting comment on his character.  In the end, its a below average episode with some nice points, mainly due to Packer.
