Trivia

During the talking head scene where Michael is explaining why he spent so much on magic items, you can see the fake thumb on his hand. It seems he was going to use the prop but it got cut from the final edit. See more »

Jim Halpert: Yeah, on the booze cruise, I told Michael about some feelings I used to have for Pam. I had just broken up with Katy, and had a couple of drinks, and I confided in the world's worst confidant.

"Jim and I are great friends"
28 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At the end of the booze cruise episode, Jim, in a moment of alcohol induced weakness, confesses to Michael the nature of the Jim and Pam relationship, that Jim is in love with her. This episode addresses that situation. The entire premise is Jim going to any length to make sure his secret is kept a secret. This includes numerous interaction with Michael including a very funny lunch trip to Hooters. The subplot of this story deals with an employee calling in sick and Michael designating Dwight as the detective to figure out whether or not the employee truly is sick. This leads to one of the more revealing character development arcs to date in the series.

This episode contains many funny Michael and Dwight moments. It also gives new dynamic to the Jim-Pam relationship as Pam is told that Jim "used" to have feelings for her. I highly recommend this episode.
