Thoughts on C.R.I.M.E.- A.I.D.

Another great episode! Lots of laughs, a few tears, and some good ol' fashioned kissing in the stairwell.

Michael and Holly - My God those two are adorable. They are more like peas and carrots than Forrest and Jenny. It's wonderful to see Michael so happy...FINALLY! Is he inappropriate and creepy most of the time? Sure. Of course. But deep down he's still a decent, warm guy and he deserves to have happiness too. Normally I would be bothered by the speed with which their relationship is progressing, but somehow it doesn't seem weird to me. Maybe because Holly wants it as much as Michael does...maybe more?? I'm very happy they are together, but very worried about their future :(

Jim, Pam and...ROY??!! - Well there's a blast from the past, eh? Roy returns for the obligatory let's-fuck-with-Jim's-mind cameo appearance. And guess what? It worked...for juuuuuust a little while, it worked. Jim actually worried about what Pam was doing with her new "friends"; enough to get in the car and start driving toward New York to check up on her. THANK GOD he turned around. I don't think Ms. Beesly would have taken too kindly to Jim showing up unannounced, because I don't think he would have been able to pass it off as some romantic surprise visit. But in the end, like Jim said, he is not that guy. "That guy" is Roy.

As a sidenote...um, when is this friggin' summer semester at art school going to end??!! Did she sign up for more time? Is it not October in Office time? It should be because next week is the Halloween episode. So what the hell? A little explanation would be great.

Dwight / Angela / Andy - Oh boy. They set a date, complete with a glitter filled save-the-date card. It's a major reality slap for Dwight. The little trysts in the warehouse were just that...little trysts. Not the rekindling of their lost romance. She's going ahead with the wedding because, as Phyllis (who rocked in this episode!!) said "Angela's not really a risk taker and Andy's not really a risk". He's safe, respectable, stable, and most importantly controllable (Angela wants to wear the pants, the skirt and the leather whip in her relationships). I understand why Phyllis told Dwight to issue the ultimatum, but honestly let's consider who it was being issued to. Angela. The Ice Queen. As if she would ever actually respond to an ultimatum.

But then again, if Dwight goes through with his end of the ultimatum, i.e. saying goodbye "to this" (*shudder*), maybe that will be the push Angela needs to finally dump Andy - like we all know she should - and get back together with her beloved "D".

Favorite moments/quotes:
* Michael's "Miss ya kiddo" to Pam
* Jim's little smirk when Michael & Holly were planning their next date
* Holly's "Hell yeah"
* "Angela's not really a risk taker and Andy's not really a risk"
* "The future mother of my children"
* "Instead of farms fighting against AIDS..."
* "He knows how to get things. He got me" "Twice"
* Michael as the auctioneer: "Hey batta batta..."
* "500 dollars and one penny"
* "I am not that guy and we are not that couple"
* Holly "shushing" Michael with her hands and the way he looked at her when she did it
And my favorite: "It squeaks when you bang it. That's what she said" Best TWSS EVER!!!!!
