    That and the fact that Toby is well liked by everyone without even trying. Michael tries so hard and still can't everyone to like him. To Michael, Toby isn't fun (or funny) like he thinks you have to be in order to be liked.

    Whatever the reason, all I know is it's comic gold when they have scenes together. [​IMG]

    I had to laugh at almost everything involving Daryl. "What college did you go to, Mike?" and Dwight's "Maybe he's going to church... or court." [​IMG]

    Oh, MAN, I wish I hadn't read that spoiler! I hope the real title isn't literal...

    But is that really a spoiler, after two weeks ago? We all knew it was coming. It doesn't say if it really happens though.

    Any news on the spin off though? Could that be part of it?

    Job Fair

    A nice little episode. The best scenes were with Michael.
    Loved his louring young boys and finding it difficult. "Thank you Dateline"

    also when Pam went to the art room to get the sheet of paper.
    She was looking for an old painting she did, then they do a close up of some old dirty paint tray stacked up. and it looks like underneath all the trays is a painting.
    I'm wondering with them showing that closeup, if Pam's picture was underneath all those trays.

    It was funny but little creepy when Pam and Jim were kissing and Michael was saying "kiss her. Kiss her good"

    and with questions about next weeks episode.
    Toby leaves and Michael throws a celebration party in his honor

    I doubt that. The camera guys wouldn't know what her painting looked like.

    Wasn't that Jim dressed up as the computer whiz guy Pam was talking to at the end of the job fair???? Andy was hilarious on the golf course.

    After the whole "Chair Model"/Jan thing, I was suspicious of this, but after watching the clip again, strangely enough, I could see it. I mean, it would be a major job, because they would have to do cheeks, eyebrows, colored contact lenses, etc, but the tone of voice and speech pattern sounded a lot like John Krasinski. In the end, though, I'm going to say "no," because the nose and teeth of the computer guy don't seem to match John. But really, I was a bit spooked - they could be related.

    And why would the school still have her painting up. She's not a recent high school grad.

    I found this episode funny but also very depressing. I can't say I am particularly happy with Toby, or Michael for that matter, in regards to Jim & Pam's relationship. I think they are both trying to sabotage it, I just think Michael is doing it subconsciously.

    I too became a little down when Pam's hopes of doing something she REALLY wanted to do in life were dashed. There was no real hilarious coda to to bring me back up at shows end so the episode left me a little "depressed".

    Her hopes weren't dashed, though. He just put a lot of different ideas into her head.

    It's open to everyone's interpretation but I think it was played as that her hopes were dashed. She was told that she'd need to learn a bunch of computer programs that she didn't know, that she'd have to go to Philadelphia or New York City to learn them and she knows that she can't afford to do that. Now if Pam eventually enrolled in art school, that scene would play as planting a seed in her head and be hopeful but as of now, it played as a bummer (for me).

    That being said, I don't think that one bit made the whole episode play depressing.

    I took that scene to mean she has some choices to make about her life. And they aren't purely financial things. Her history has been that she has opted for what's safe, so this is another time for her to decide whether she will take a risk. I don't think Jim would get in the way of it, but he has ideas about where their relationship should be going and she might want to focus on developing her career instead. That could be depressing.

    There is no way that scene was a set-up for her to be the spin-off character is there?

    Well, apparently she's not giving up on her hopes, so that's good, though this episode was a little depressing in other ways.
