Stanley had a slice of pizza stashed in his pocket! I want to hang with Stanley. Or maybe I just want pizza.
I really thought the show'd lost all life, but this has been a good run.
I was amazed that they let Pam say that line to the kid. Loved the kid's mom. I'm just now realizing they haven't mined the potential of Scranton and the neighborhood at all.
I don't like the whole "got beat up by a girl" joke, like it's funny if a girl decks him, but not a boy? But I thought Andy's deciding he got where he was by being willing to get involved was pretty good. It's true that passive bystanders get less banged up than people who try to help in a confrontation. Actually this is on my mind already because I'm watching "The Slap" which is a series about a guy who hits a kid who's dangerously acting out (more dangerous than throwing pine cones). Andy had slow reflexes, but other than that, what was he supposed to do? Being punched by a kid doesn't really afford you the opportunity to say "you should see what happened to the other guy"-- and do we really want more people throwing punches, even with adults?
I like that they are developing Andy to be a buffoon of a boss without him being the same kind of incompetent as Michael. He's just enough off kilter to provide fodder, but not so over the top so as to be just too damn much. Most of the bosses they've had have been just too much.
ETA: I can't remember what the tag was. There was a scene where Jim is holding the sign outside and just up the street another guy is holding a similar sign but doing tricks with it. Jim tries to imitate the moves and fails miserably. That might have been the tag or it might have come earlier, but I think that was it.
