Dwight brings around a basket of New York bagels to share with his co-workers. After a few of them have taken one, he enters Michael's office to offer him one. However, the basket has seemingly refilled itself, including with the darker pumpernickel bagel that Stanley had taken not moments before. See more »


Michael Scott: As I watched Pam's big, strong hand coming towards my face, I saw my entire life flash before my eyes. And guess what? I have four kids. And I have a hover car and a hover house. And my wife is a runner, and it shows. And Pam and Jim are my best friends, and our kids play together. And I'm happy. And I am rich and I never die. It doesn't sound like much, but it's enough for me.

So-so episode
7 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wasn't impressed with this episode. I thought that it started in a funny way and that Micheal was acting typical Micheal, but I thought that Pam was outside her character. We all remember Pam as a nice girl that wasn't ever violent. I understand that her rage was trying to be projected, but I found it extremely tasteless that she wanted to get into a fist fight. I do not support violence and due to this Pam and Jim as less of heroes to me. I added Jim to the list because I saw him as a supporter to Pam's violent behavior. I felt sorry for Micheal being humiliated for no reason, he just broke up with Pam's mother, that's really not a big deal. He even didn't do it in any offensive way. So, this episode was a disappointment. The problem could have been resolved differently.
