On this episode of The Office, It's party time at Dunder Mifflin Sabre! Michael and the gang head out to a club in hopes of cutting loose and dancing the night away, and I couldn't be more excited. After viewing the episode, only one thing came to mind. Oddly enough, it completely resembles when I go out with my NYU friends in the city. Not.
The episode begins with Michael seeing how many pushups he can do. Miraculously, he achieves "25 and 1 girl pushups." Congrats, Michael. Now, if the situation couldn't get weirder, Stanley is the only person that can match this endeavor, and he does so barely (while almost having a heart attack). I have to hand it to you, Stanley, that was quite a show.
After Phyllis and her husband Bob Vance decide to go out for the evening to a "nightclub," the others join in for the ride. Even Jim, who calls Pam hoping that she will say no, is shocked to learn that she is dying to go out. So much for your baby getting you out of any situation, Jim.
Before I recap the party scenes, there are a few details you must keep in mind:
1. Oscar likes a fellow Dunder Mifflin coworker Matt, and gets to the office early in hopes of flirting.
2. Kevin believes that if you whisper baby noises towards Pam's breasts, they will fill with milk, and cause her shirt to get wet. It's awkward even typing that.
3. Andy and Erin are still going strong. Kevin even makes sexual hand motions as they give their interviews to the camera. Also awkward.
As the gang gets to the club, Jim, Pam, and Michael begin to play pool, and they introduce Michael to Pam's friend, Julie. Michael and Julie seem to hit it off from the very beginning. After Jim hints that Julie was brought to the club in order to be set up with Michael, our boss races to the car, puts on a completely odd hat and flips up his collar. America, meet Date Michael.
Pam also brings her friend Isabelle. She and Dwight reunite, and the chemistry goes right back to where it was at the wedding. Suffice it to say, Angela is not happy about this. Remember, Dwight and Angela signed a birth contract saying that the two of them will procreate, and she is not about to let Isabelle get in the way of this.
As Kelly and Ryan are rocking at DDR (that's what the cool kids call Dance Dance Revolution), Andy and Erin ask to play. Awkward conversation ensues, and they realize that their situation is causing "drama." Andy explains how the two of them should not be out as a couple, and they both go off and try to hit on other people, in turn confusing the office and making it seem like they aren't an item. This doesn't work for two long, and the couple end up coming back together. Andy even makes an announcement over the loud speaker that he and Erin have "gone out on a few dates," and that they "plan to go out on more."
In order to try and impress Julie, Michael acts like a clown, and starts crawling on the pool table. The angry manager runs over and kicks Michael out of the building. He is completely embarrassed, and goes to the bar in order to get the manager to apologize to him in front of Julie. Oddly enough, Michael and the manager have chemistry, and he even tells a ridiculous lie of how he is writing a book. Julie is devastated, and leaves, even though Jim and Pam try to convince her that Michael is actually a different person that his persona during the evening.
Oscar eventually has a semi-"date" with Matt, as they play arcade basketball. Kevin continues his quest to make Pam's breasts fill with milk. Kelly and Ryan fight as always, and Dwight breaks off his marriage contract with Angela.
So at the end of this, who ends up winning? Michael gets the manager, Pam gets her long-needed night out, and Oscar may have a chance with the man of his dreams. Sorry Julie and Angela, it just wasn't your night tonight. Tomorrow, GNO! (That's what the cool kids call Girl's Night Out.)
Until next week, try and beat Creed at DDR. He is far better than I would have ever imagined.
