Trivia

Bandit, the cat thrown into the ceiling by Angela in the opening, was in fact a real cat and not CGI. The man in the ceiling who was supposed to catch the cat missed. Thankfully Bandit was not harmed in the filming of his episode. See more »

Right before Dwight lights the firecrackers, in the background is Micheal yelling for help through the smashed window, yet he's seen smashing it a few seconds later. See more »

Stress Relief
3 February 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Oh, man.

I saw the first four season of the office in about three weeks, just to catch up with the fifth season.

And this is BY FAR the best episode of the office i have had the pleasure to see.

EVERYTHING for this episode is worth mentioning. The crazy beginning, which got me cracked up with Angela's effort to have her cat saved, the Hannibal Lecter CPR moment, the Lily movie, Andy crying, Pam and her parents, Michael feeding pigeons.

It all adds up to the climax, Michael trying to offend Stanley and Stanley laughing.

It just made me realize that Michael Scott is like a grown up child in a playground. A playground called Dunder Mifflin.
