"The People Person's Paper People"

Even though last week's 'Local Ad' was not one of my favorite episodes, I did enjoy it more the second time around. It's safe to say that it is certainly a very endearing episode.

Andy not knowing the -Kit Kat- part of "Break me off a piece of that Kit Kat Bar," was too funny. I loved all the things he came up with to fill in that space; such as, "Break me off a piece of that: applesauce, Chrysler car, football cream, lumber tar, Snickers bar, Grey Poupon, NutraSweet, and (my personal favorite) Poison Gas.

In the end, Andy settled on "Break me off a piece of that Fancy Feast."

"It's the cat food! NAILED IT."

This moment was also hilarious:

"I kind of know what it's like to be in commercials. My nickname in high school used to be Kool-Aid Man."

And this moment:

"I find the mystery genre disgusting. I hate being titillated."

The second version of Daryl's jingle "The People Person's Paper People" was terrific. Those moments were a lot of fun.

But my favorite moment from this episode?

"Oh D. Oh D!!!!"

That was awesome. That got the loudest laugh of the night from me.

Dwight's avatar was pretty comical, too. It gave me an odd mixture of feelings that lie somewhere between amusement and pity.

Jim's little insecurities in this episode were really sweet. I loved his embarrassment at Pam's discovery of 'Philly Jim'; his avatar. That was rather charming.

And I know I'm being a cliche fan girl here, but how adorable is he?

I also really enjoyed the moment at Poor Richards when the waiter started to hit on Pam and Jim quickly put his arm around her to make it obvious she was taken. (I know. I'm sappy. I can't help it. I could actually go on for ages about how he seemed a little unsure of himself when Pam didn't go home with him and how he got her breakfast the next morning, etc). What a cutey.

And who would have thought that Michael Scott's Dunder Mifflin ad would be so much better than the professional one? His was great! Everyone got in on the action and, for the first time, seemed to really enjoy one of Michael's video concoctions.

So, the more I think about it, the more I like this episode. Sometimes it's the shows I have the least enthusiasm for at first that end up being my favorites. Diwali was a prime example. It wasn't an episode that I clung to at first, but now it's one of my favorites of season 3. There's something really sweet about it and Local Ad almost shares the same sort of sentiment to me. So...we'll see.

Anyhow, stay tuned for tonight's episode "Branch Wars" where Karen Fillipelli makes a return appearance as she tries to steal Stanley from the Scranton branch!
