But the Jim and Pam fight killed me -- it was so realistic, and so, so sad. It's been a long time since this show made me cry (since Michael left, probably, and rarely before then). Beautifully acted (I'm a girl, so Pam's breakdown was all too real), and I liked the interaction with the documentary film crew. I am hanging on to my confidence in the show writers to fix them. But kudos to them for making me realize I could still be invested in this relationship.
Yes to all of it. Pam has been pretty understanding and tolerant about Jim starting this business in Philly. If Jim was just doing it to support his family, he could be doing that in Scranton. Pam has been taking care of their family so he can pursue a career he enjoys doing. As soon as they had Pam saying in her TH that she was excited for Jim to say, "Beesly!" I knew it wouldn't happen. I guess the ending was a better alternative than her telling him and getting no reaction, which is what I thought was going to happen. The last scene was so sad, because all Pam wanted was to tell Jim her good news and get that reaction from him. Instead she got a fight that was a long time coming.
I didn't get a romantic vibe from the sound guy at all. It seemed like a friend comforting another friend.
Jenna Fischer was pretty amazing in that scene. The part where she kept saying, "Yep. Yep." just tore my heart out. It was so simple and not at all overdone, just like she couldn't process what was happening to her life. All she wanted was a "BEESLY!" and instead, Jim dumps on her because he had a shitty day.
The yep, yep got to me. Sounded like she wanted to avoid her voice cracking and having Jim hear how upset she was.
Toby has reached super creeper status. I mean, I laughed but he was super skeevy in this episode. I'm guessing from Nellie's flustered reaction that the two haven't even talked since they kissed, which makes Toby's infatuation even weirder. I guess he's the type of guy who's lead on by one kiss. Poor Nellie. I never thought I was going to say that, but they've made leaps with her character this season. I like her now.
He's an official creep, but Nellie's reaction shots were hilarious.
I liked that Kevin just cut the chase and called out Pete and Erin. And I loved how Phyllis said that Andy was vanilla, and that Pete likes to get "weird." Yeah, Phyllis would be able to tell that in a man. Actually, I enjoyed that entire scene, including Oscar's little feminist rant and his solo clap.
Oscar trying to start a slow clap actually had me laughing out loud.
