The Office: Episode 172 – Lice

DR J The Office Lice

  • Written by Niki Schwartz-Wright
  • Directed by Rodman Flender
  • A brief synopsis – Jim has a great meeting with a basketball legend.  Pam lets Meredith take the rap for bringing lice into the office.  Dwight vows to exterminate the menace.  Darryl gets unwanted help from Kevin, Phyllis and Nellie.
  • The best line – Dwight (after letting loose an insecticide bomb in Andy’s locked office):Whoa. Hypertoxide has a mild hallucinogenic effect, but I don’t think it’s kicked in yet.  I’m gonna count down from Ten, Nine, Yellow, Cold, Sad, Purple (faints).    Erin: Wow.  He got to purple.
  • The best moment – It would have been the insecticide, had it only been done once.  So instead, let’s go with Kevin and the bubble wrap.
  • The best story line – I just loved seeing Dr. J, and I am pretty sure he’s going to be a client.
  • Key exit(s) –  Not sure when we’ll see the Doctor again, but I hope it’s not the last time.
  • Notable guest appearance –  Dr. J!
  • Grade – B

A nice episode that moves forward without wasting an excessive amount on sentiment.  Having Pam and Meredith experience a moment is nice, because neither of them breaks character.  Jim’s project is looking pretty cool and I am really excited to see him teaming up with Darryl.  I am hoping Darryl stays with the girl, too.  The rest of the stuff is entertaining, if not the most exciting.
