The Office Episode Recap: "Shareholders Meeting" Season 6, Episode 10

Corporate bigwig David Wallace summons a jubilant Michael to attend a shareholders meeting in New York City. Michael invites Dwight, Andy and Oscar to tag along. Meanwhile, Jim clashes with a lazy Ryan back at the office.

Whenever an office tries to go green, usually it means changing out a couple of light bulbs. However, for Dwight, it means stumbling about in a homemade costume and calling himself Recyclops. After years of trying to save the planet, however, Recyclops has a change of heart and tries to destroy the world. It's recycling for dummies at its funniest!

In more important paper-selling news, apparently Michael Scott has been invited to the Big Apple to attend their shareholders meeting. He's more concerned with his stage entrance — and the limo that he is going to be riding in; while others, like Oscar, are actually trying to solve DM's financial hardships. Solution to the problem? Michael invites Oscar and the entire office to come along! Of course, only Dwight, Andy and Oscar are brave (and/or stupid) enough to accept the offer.

Upon arrival, Michael is separated from his ragtag group. Bigwigs, VIPs and CEOs greet him with handshakes backstage. Meanwhile, Dwight, Oscar and Andy (DOA for short — go figure!) take their seats in the audience and prep to "throw" the Q&A in their boss's honor. However, once Michael takes to the stage, it becomes evident that this meeting is going to be something else altogether. The resounding boos make it loud and clear that this is going to be a blood bath.

Back at the branch, Jim tries to assert his management position by (for lack of a better word) "controlling" his co/sub-workers. No one believes that Jim is as powerful as Michael — even Pam! And this gets under his bossy skin.

Jim fingers out Ryan as, quite appropriately, the laziest person in the office. In order to inspire him from apathy, Jim moves his desk into the closet (literally, a closet). Ryan suddenly offers to work late; Jim's managerial plan has worked (albeit under illegal means).

Who knows why Michael is up on stage, because his comments and poor microphone etiquette stick out like a sore thumb. He attempts to defend the horrid bunch of executives, but instead sticks both of his feet in his mouth. Michael's not-so sharp tongue, along with DM's over indulgences, are the epitome of big business waste!

But perhaps it's a good thing Michael is there. Because, via his own idiotic ramblings, he promises profits (and carbon neutrality) in 45 days or less! This sends the audience into a happy tizzy. But is it possible? How can a company on the verge of virtual bankruptcy turn itself around in a month and a half? With Michael at the helm, it actually seems possible. However, when the executives chastise him and even threaten to take his limo away, Michael & DOA jet back for Scranton in their white chariot.

Again, all is right (or wrong) with Scranton. But seriously, with what's going on in this economy, what's in store for Dunder Mifflin? Do you see everyone having a job in a few months? Or even a few weeks? What would an unemployed Jim and Pam be like? Discuss!
