The Office, April 17

Poor Michael! He's just heartbroken over his breakup with Jan! Stop reading here if you didn't watch this episode...

The show starts with the Dunder Mifflin crew walking from an auxiliary parking lot because their spots in the regular lot have been taken over by construction crews. The first time I laughed out loud: Andy said he lost a penny out of his loafer on the walk to the office.

Michael says he has sworn off Jan. He's supposed to be shopping for a new chair, which will mean Pam gets his old chair. Creed is interested in the happenings because he gets Pam's chair. Second time I LOL: Creed says then he'll have two chairs and one to go. What does that mean? Anyhow, Michael professes his love for a particular chair model who looks a lot like Jan with dark hair.

Michael starts approaching his office mates, looking for a date. Third LOL: he goes up to Oscar and calls him "Oscar Meyer Wiener Lover." He then goes about telling the staff they must submit the name of a woman he can date.

Andy and Kevin approach Michael about the parking problem, he doesn't want to deal with it, so Kevin and Andy round up the heads of the other businesses in the building to fight for their right to park near the office.

Michael looks over the candidates of potential dates, when he finds what he thinks is a good one. This is the fourth LOL moment: it's a hot and juicy redhead named Wendy. He calls the number and it's a Wendy's restaurant! Dwight tells Michael he'll find the chair model. According to Dwight, she's dead. Pam sets Dwight up with her landlady, Margaret. Michael arranges to meet her at a coffee shop, then tries to pretend like he's not Michael when he sees her. He shows Margaret Jan's picture on his cell phone, mentions her boobs, then explains she was manipulative. He made a big mistake - his phone dialed and Jan heard all of that. He tells Margaret their conversation was nice, like talking with the little old lady on the bus.

Kevin and Andy state their case and the other bosses agree to give up the spots to the Dunder Mifflin crew. Andy will later say he did it for the little people, and is seen doing a dance in the parking lot.

Jim tells Pam she'll have to move. After some ribbing, they say they should live together. Pam says she won't move in with someone unless she's engaged. Jim says he's going to propose. Then, in a confession, shows the ring and admits he bought it a week after they stopped dating. (OMG!!!) Then, they're walking to their car and Jim drops to one knee (wait for it), then he asks Pam if she would mind waiting for him to tie his shoe.

Dwight takes Michael to the apparent grave site of the chair model. Michael closes out the show by singing his own version of American Pie. Here it goes:

Bye, bye Miss Chair Model Lady
I dreamt that we were married and you treated me nice
We had lots of kids drinking whiskey and rye
Oh, why'd you have to go off and die?
Why'd you have to go off and die?

Funny stuff. And it will only get better!
