Just perfect. I'm so glad this show is back. Dwight tackling Ryan in the teaser just told me that this one was going to be good.
When Dwight, who has a fear of public speaking, is asked to give a speech at a sales convention, he turns to Michael for help.
Dwight's announcement was great. Traffic accident, flipped cars, Brad Pitt. "He will never act again."
It was so in-character for Michael to be such a bastard about Dwight's public speaking. The whole episode he tried to poke holes in Dwight's confidence, and when he does well in spite of Michael, he bails to the bar. Then ignores the speech in order to ramble on. Did I mention the perfect? "I captivated the guy who captivated a thousand guys. Think about it. A thousand guys."
A very nice setup for his ultimate of cringe-worthy performances (worse than Dundee or Improv, even!) - and Dwight! OH!MY!GOD! He was so good and spastic and over-the-top! So Perfectly Dwight!
Angela's farewell exchange to Dwight was awesome, and the best was the shot to Pam (and back to Angela) afterward. It was so sweet of Angela to play hooky from work to support her man.
Jim/Pam. Sigh. I've found that I don't really need a lot to keep me going in that respect, which is nice. Draw it out.
