I would have liked to see a few more episodes with the summer interns.

I think the funniest reveal was the reveal of the receptionist at the end of a scene with Michael blathering on (alone, it appeared at the time).

The last few minutes were classic Office.  The lies, the pregancy discussion, the interns.  Great stuff.

Yeah I thought this was one of the better episodes I've seen in a while.

I thought Stanley was going to hurt himself because wasn't using good technique slamming the tire iron into that red car.

I liked Andy's relief that the rumor of him being gay wasn't true.

Stellar episode and a great way to kick off the season.  The parkour intro had my wife and I in stitches.

Anyone recognize Parker from Desperate Housewives as one of the interns?  Or perhaps it's the other one.

Defintely a great start to the season.  LOL'd the entire episode.  Andy's rumor was just too hilarious.

Parkour!!!!

Best season premiere the show's had in a few years now. Seemed like a return to old form in many ways......very promising. /img/vbsmilies/htf/thumbsup.gif

With Buffalo shut down, Dunder Mifflin is down to what -- seven branches? Akron OH, Albany NY, Camden NJ, Nashua NH, Scranton, Utica NY, and Yonkers right?

Classic Michael in this episode - I completely cringed during the opening when he pulls Oscar into his office...  The whole "Cheese Cart" ruse was brilliant (especially Andy's spiel) and Michael's constant "deer in the headlights" look, whenever he was stuck between Jim and the guy from Corporate.

It was nice to see Toby do a bit more, and hey, was that a Creed sighting?

What is funny is that Michael is right. I don't think Jim will be good in a managerial position. Remember the episode where he was in charge when Michael was away and everything went to hell?

Not sure that that is accurate in an office that has Michael Scott as a manager. /img/vbsmilies/htf/biggrin.gif

I don't recall the specific episode that Kevin is referring to but I think Jim has shown that when he tries, he can be a solid employee. Now that he's got a house to pay for and a kid on the way, he has the proper motivation to do the job correctly and take it seriously. Since it's a comedy, I assume he'll also continue to bust Dwight's chops as well.

Dwight's reaction was classic.

I think the episode you're talking about is the one where Jim decides to celebrate everyone's birthday at the same time? At the end Michael tells him how he made the same mistake, it was a learning experience. Jim has always been depicted as someone with a strong future in management.
"Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now... and so we'll hunt him... because he can take it... because he's not a hero... he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector... a DARK KNIGHT."

Yeah, I've seen comments elsewhere suggesting that Jim might not be a good manager. While I think he some learning to do, let's not forget that in the more serious Stamford branch, Jim rose in the ranks quite well.

One of the few "event" episodes that really held up for me. I was practically on the floor with the chain-reaction pukefest in the cold open, and there were lots of great laughs spread throughout the rest of the episode too. One of the funniest and one of the most touching episodes of the series. Still can't believe Michael slept with Pam's mom.

Great episode.  Really excellent all around.

Michael slept with Pam's mom? I must have missed a scene.
