The Office Surplus

The Surplus

An episode with Cousin Mose is an episode to talk about! Haha. Unfortunately, I’m a tad worried. It appeared many people were put off by last week’s episode and I thought it was a hoot! This week, I felt it was contrived and well…silly at times. 
Coming from a banking background, I’m so glad that end of the year Over/Underages and Profits/Losses and such are no longer something I deal with in Youth Ministry! If for nothing else, that in itself made this episode ironically humorous! 


The Scranton branch has a little surplus and Michael is thrust into the perilous decision of choosing a new copier for the branch, new chairs for himself, or keeping 15% of it for himself. Michael’s desperate need for love and acceptance from his subordinates won’t allow hiim to make the decision which is where plenty of awkward humor, a ballsy Jim, and…well a ballsier Pam step forward…with make up! 

Andy and Angela check out Shrute farms for the wedding and honestly it’s just shameful with a few good laughs sprinkled throughout.

    “YOU are the silent killer” – Michael to Toby

    That was definitely the best one-liner last night.
