Goofs

When Michael and Dwight prepare to meet with David Wallace, Michael states that 15 people will be out of work. At the time, only 13 people work in that branch's office, some of whom will be kept on. However it has been shown repeatedly that Michael is very bad with numbers. See more »

Quotes

Jim Halpert: I worked in Scranton for a really long time and... It's gonna be weird that it's all disappearing. I mean, I always knew that the branch would shut down someday. I just figured it would be because Michael sold the building for some magic beans.

Pretty Funny, but Not Great
10 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode had a lot of humorous moments. The opening sequence between Jim, the fax machine, Dwight, and "Future Dwight" was among the best opening sequences yet. Michael's comments about "Bowling for Columbine"---"I thought it was gonna be more like Kingpin"---were hilarious. The Stanley and Ryan/Kelly stuff was also great. My one problem is the plot itself. I feel that the show is selling out with Jim moving back. They had a great thing going in Stamford, now they give that up to bring this stupid love triangle crap to Scranton. I was very disappointed in the writers. I do hope the Ed Helms character follows Jim and the girl to Scranton. The dichotomy between he and Dwight could be gold. I felt that the episode could have been split into 2 parts. I felt that it was rushed. One moment Jan was at one branch, the next moment the other branch. Everything seemed to get resolved much too quickly. The episode as a whole was good, but there were more funny moments than a completely humorous episode.
