This episode is much funnier than the last one. Maybe that's why they had to have two in one night.
Michael screeches up in the street outside the business park, blaring Lady Gaga. As he pulls up to the camera, he turns down the music and tells us, "It's Britney, bitch.
On this Very Special Night, which is now a Very Special Afternoon the Following Day, we are treated to not one, but two new episodes. And for some very unknown reason, Global aired them backwards. This is my reward for getting a week off, apparently.
The Office recaps are back! That's all right, no applause necessary. Unlike in tonight's episode.
The party planning committee is working on Michael's upcoming 15-year anniversary shindig.
This week: Missed birthdays! Road trips! Awkward Andy, just like every other week!
We open with Jim staring at his phone, which is making heavy breathing sounds. Jim explains that the phone guys came in and showed Michael how the phones have a PA system.
This week: Hour-long, ten-minutes-late Superbowl madness! Foiling of PVRs en masse! A much better episode than the last one! Fires and heart attacks and Jack Black! Me being a day late on the recap! Buckle in, folks.
We open in the office, where Dwight is on a mission and has invited the cameras along.
This week: Debates on Hilary Swank's hotness! Top secret paper recon! Dwight and Michael in a car!
In the opener, Jim has run a red wire from Dwight's computer all the way out to a telephone pole in the parking lot and up the pole.
In our first teaser post-Christmas, we learn that Angela's been calling the cops on all the speeders on the street outside the office, and they've set up a digital speed sensor (that's the technical term I just made up) in the street.
In the opener, Dwight walks in to a gift-wrapped desk, computer, and office supplies, courtesy of... you guess who. Jim brags that it took him about five minutes to do, because he's got a black belt in gift-wrapping.
The Scranton office has a $4,300 surplus that needs to be spent by the end of today or else it will be deducted from next year's budget. Michael asks Oscar to explain it to him like he's five years old.
I know the episode title kind of gives this away, but guess what. Toby's back! Michael is, as I'm sure you can imagine, not thrilled.
The best part is how by the time Michael realizes Toby's back, he's been there for a week already.
