When D'Angelo is interrupted by Andy in the break room, he scoops the smore snack into the trash with his left hand. When he says 'let's rip it up homes' then slaps the wall, it's with his right hand, the hand that was not smeared with chocolate. See more »

re: the sound cutting out during Pam's goodbye
2 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Office UK used the "removal of microphone for key dialogue" during its last regular season episode, which was a far more powerful scene. The Office US, as usual, bites the good bits to avoid overly sentimental scenes. It's a shame they couldn't come up with their own ideas, but we've been used to that since at least Season 4, right? Do yourselves a favor and watch The Office UK. Gervais and Merchant know how to do things the right way.

At the very least, the writers didn't muck the entire episode up like they did with that awful musical number in the previous episode. Will Ferrell, surprisingly, stole every scene he was in.
