The Office: The Convention
Michael can be such an ass at times, but underneath all of the bravado, he is a very vulnerable guy. He generally is hurt that Jim left the Scranton office for greener pastures in Stamford but, of course, Jim admits that he didn't leave because he hated Michael. We all know why he left, but he had to tell Michael about his rejection by Pam. We then see Michael do his best to be a friend to Jim, and when he just acts like a regular guy and not a combination of a comedian and businessman, he can be just fine.
The Dwight/Angela pairing certainly reached another level, didn't it? When Jim got a hold of Dwight's room key at the hotel and walked in and thought he saw a "hooker," I think we all thought it was Angela in some sort of sexy get-up. Plus, I've never heard the word "monkey" used in a romantic sort of way, and I don't think I want to ever again.
We all knew that Pam's date with the cartoonist wouldn't turn out well. Look, it's sort of inevitable that she and Jim will encounter each other again. Whether or not it turns into a romance or just more unrequited infatuation remains to be seen, but the scene where Toby tries to hit on Pam without much success (due to his nervousness) may have implications down the road, whereby either Jim learns of the situation and goes back to Scranton to win her love, or for Roy to win her back. Of course, Pam could just continue to exert her newfound independence and "play the field."
How'd you like that little look when Jan was impressed with Michael's business deal with Hammermill Products? Although Jan gives off the impression that Michael repulses her, she seems to react positively every time he does something that makes her happy. Could another hook-up between them be on the horizon?
The scene at the end with the blacklight bulb was hilarious--Dwight is definitely a player in his own twisted way.
