If Pam was Salma Hayek, it would have been just another day of breastfeeding someone else's baby. Instead, it was a really awkward moment that will probably haunt the couple into infinity.
Then again, we're guessing the little mix-up will cause new parents to keep their babies close to them in the maternity ward. So, nice PSA from 'The Office' (Thu., 9PM ET on NBC).
Watch the video after the jump.
Since Fringe comes on at the same time as The Office now, I'm a little behind on my Office viewing. But no worries, because the folks at SlashControl are fantastic about getting new episodes on the site shortly after they air. That means even if you missed last week's episode of The Office, "The Lover," and your DVR / TIVO failed to record it for you, you can watch it at SlashControl.
I'm one of those people who's been patiently waiting for this day to happen. In fact, it ranks right up there with Luke and Laura on my list of most anticipated TV weddings. Ever since Jim planted a big smooch on Pam after Casino Night (season two finale), my heart's been all aflutter for these two. Sniff ... I knew they'd be walking down the aisle (or whatever they have at Niagara Falls) one day.
After the jump, check out seven sneak peek clips straight from AOL's awesome video site, SlashControl.
This isn't the first time The Office has launched an Internet campaign. Who remembers Schrute Farms? This one seems similarly clever, although most of the sections give you a pop-up window that says "Coming Soon!" (hopefully it won't remain that way indefinitely).
Look in the Guest Book for comments from other characters (my favorite, of course, is from Michael Scott: "Pam, you are like a daughter to me, and Jim is like a son. I'm so proud that my son and daughter are to be wed!"). Apparently anybody can leave comments as well, so go for it. Try not to overwhelm the web servers.
Despite the grim economic news we hear every day, the characters on television have been able to survive -- indeed, thrive -- in some of the crappiest jobs in the universe.
An editorial assistant at a fashion mag, like Ugly Betty, finds a way to keep a Manhattan studio apartment, and commute home to Papi in Queens. Running a gym is a breeze for Old Christine, because she doesn't really work. And even without an income, Samantha Who? is never without her Jimmy Choos.
9. Christine Campbell, The New Adventures of Old Christine - Gym Manager
8. Jim, The Office - Salesman
7. Betty Suarez, Ugly Betty - Editorial Assistant
6. Chuck Bartowski, Chuck - IT Guy
5. Kenneth Parnell, 30 Rock - Page
4. Gary Barnes, Gary Unmarried - House Painter
3. Susan Mayer, Desperate Housewives - Children's Book Author
2. Adrian Monk (Monk); Shawn Spencer (Psych); Patrick Jane (The Mentalist) - Police Consultants
1. Penny, Big Bang Theory - Cheesecake Factory waitress/aspiring actress

All the signs are there on The Office. Jim has thrived in Dunder Mifflin under Michael Scott's leadership (such as it was), by doing just enough to satisfy corporate. He had a comfy niche in the Scranton branch. Well, the happy times are over. The new boss, Charles Miner, does not like Jim.
As Jay pointed out in his reviews of The Office this week (read them here and here), the writers have managed to take an established show into amazing new directions. After quitting in a huff, Michael Scott started his own paper company, and The Michael Scott Paper Company already has a Web site up and running.
"Serving Scranton's paper needs since 2009," the site touts, the company is more than just paper. It's about creating meaningful relationships with people.
There's plenty of homegrown look-at-me content on YouTube, but every once in a while, there's that rare find that makes your work day a little bit brighter.
For fans of 'The Office,' the latest mash-up -- set to the tune of Billy Joel's 'We Didn't Start the Fire' -- is a must-watch. It cleverly recaps classic and more recent moments, from the kidnapped pizza delivery kid and Andy's bloody fun run nipples to the toaster oven incident-turned-catchy refrain "Ryan started the fire."
Could you watch Michael Scott dance on the booze cruise all day? Are you Scrantonicity's biggest fan? And how much is a Schrute Buck really worth? Watch. Giggle. Enjoy.

- Another movie that premiered at Sundance that I'm excited about is Paper Heart. Starring Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi. It's both a comedy about a documentary and a documentary about a comedy, if that makes sense. Cinematical explains it all in their review.

Watching the interplay between Pam and Jim tonight really hit home. I've seen my wife's face when I tell her that I've got to fly to Waukesha, WI (a real place!) to make with the ha-has. I've heard the resignation in her voice as she said, like Jim, "well, it's your dream."
There's been some grumbling in the comments that this season has been a bit off. I'm not 100% sure I agree with that, but I can understand where you're coming from. That said, let me ask you this: is there another comedy show on the planet that can pack such an emotional wallop? Phew...
All I can say is bring on more Holly and congratulations to Toby! I guess since Lieberstein will still be so involved with the show, there's always a chance of more Toby in the future, but the beautiful Ryan will add a new dynamic to the series. While Amy Ryan's currently only set for five or so episodes, I hope they can expand that if it works. Now that Pam is back off the market and Karen's gone, Holly represents a new amorous target for the boys of the office. And having her be the HR rep at the same time makes it all the more taboo to pursue. Which means Michael will be all over it like Dwight on Second Life.
NBC has released a sneak peek of The Office's season finale called "Good-bye Toby." After Thursday night's stellar episode, I'm psyched for the finale even though I tend to be underwhelmed by one-hour Office episodes. How about you? Ready for next Thursday?
In the scene, Jim reprograms Dwight's phone to forward to his own. Dwight reacts...well, exactly how you'd expect him to. It's pretty hilarious. I love the Jim-Pam-Dwight dynamic. And I love any time Jim pulls a prank on Dwight. My favorite prank had to be when Jim sent Dwight a fax from "future Dwight" telling him not to drink the coffee.
I put the video after the jump. I also put the two-minute recap of last Thursday's show just in case you missed it. The Office's one-hour season finale is Thursday May 15th at 9 p.m. ET / PT.
I got an episode that won't necessarily go down in the annals of time as an Office classic, but does bring us back to the core of the show: the office. The episode takes place entirely in one day, entirely in the office, and virtually every cast member gets pulled into one storyline or the other. For me, this is when The Office is at its best, when its presenting us barely controlled chaos. Offices are constantly bustling with activity productive or otherwise. Tonight's episode captured just that, and very well.
This is probably the weirdest video you'll watch today. And no, don't worry, the Deal Or No Deal models aren't going to make a guest appearance on The Office. That would be too much to take.
No, the models appear in a promotional video on NBC's web site, re-enacting a scene from the sitcom. You'll see model...um...what's her name, the hot one, in a cast, talking to another model...um...can't remember her name...sitting behind the desk, playing Pam. The scene is even done in the style of the show, with hand-held cameras, sweeping shots to get reactions of characters, and confessionals. The woman playing the Dwight part only has one line but she's actually rather effective.
