The Office: Booze Cruise
Despite numerous Titanic references, the cruise begins under the leadership of Captain Jack. As usual, Michael desperately wants to take over the reins and begin his presentation, but the captain decides to have everyone limbo. In a scene eerily reminiscent of David Brent's wild dance in the British version, Michael gets his groove on, saying that if you're going to be the boss, be the boss of dancing.
At the same time, the Pam/Jim infatuation continues, with Jim making eyes at her. He wants to tell her how he feels, but he can't bring himself to do it. Pam does admit to Jim during a conversation outside that she just doesn't get Roy, her fiance of three years. Later on, Jim's date asks Pam how she was able to get engaged, but she says it's been three years and she's not the right one to ask. She definitely is looking for an out.
Suddenly, a drunken Roy finally announces that he and Pam should set a wedding date, which makes her extremely happy and Jim totally confused. He's so bummed out that he eventually breaks up with his girlfriend.
Michael decides to deliver his presentation, after throwing up. He decides to use a sinking ship analogy, but some of the staff take it seriously, and Captain Jack, in the middle of high seas "shenanigans" ends Michael's program and puts him in the brig outside. Jim later comes out and admits his feelings for Pam to Michael. In another show of humanity that lurks beneath his bravado, Michael tells him to never give up.
What can you say? Another solid episode. This sitcom gets better every week. What made this one quite good was that they didn't rely on Dwight too much, although the bits with him "driving" the boat were good. Will we see Jim get some cojones and tell Pam of his feelings? Probably not until the final episode of the season, but the build-up should be interesting.
