The Office Episodes

Episode - Performance Review

Jan leaves Michael a vague business related voicemail and he wants to scruntinize and analyze and get the thoughts of the employees. Knowing what they say will affect the outcome of their performance review, the employees play along and tell Michael exactly what he wants to hear.

With the exception of the end of "Casino Night" this is my all time, so far, favorite bit of the show. Dwight is harassing Jim and giving him bad advice for his performance review. Jim giving it right back, frustrates Dwight and he says "You know what, I'm going to zone you out for the rest of the day. I need to stay focused. And I don't have to see you tomorrow or Sunday. Please don't call me and we'll see how things go on Monday."

Immediately Jim looks up with a bright eyed expression of sheer joy. (In case you don't know, it's Thursday not Friday) He almost can't stand it. You can feel his excitement.

Jim tells his plot to Pam and they continue to work on that for the rest of the day.

The office continues to theorize what happend between Michael and Jan.

Michael worried about his own review brings back the suggestion box as a way to have ideas about the branch to tell Jan.

Suggestions made:

  • What should we do to prepare for Y2K?
  • We need better outreach for employees fighting depression
  • You need to do something about your B.O.
  • You need to do something about your coffee breath
  • Used gum wrapped in a piece of paper.
  • Don't sleep with your boss

Michael continues to press Jan for a reason why she doesn't want to see him anymore. She tells him it's because he's rude, stupid, obnoxious, and inconsiderate and she isn't in a place right now to have a relationship.

Oddly enough, Michael feels better about himself.

On Friday, Dwight was very late to work thinking it was Saturday.

Pam and Jim are very proud of themselves.
