Speaking of Pam: while signing for a package, she calls Kelly to say her stuff just came; immediately, she has to pull the phone away from her ear because Kelly is squealing at a deafening pitch and probably having a shopgasm back there in her cube. Pam then interviews that Kelly is a huge fan of online shopping (hope you were sitting down for that shocking character detail), and that Pam thought it might be time for her to get some new clothes. No, that time was 1994.
In Kelly's cube, Pam pulls a berry-coloured silk top out to show Kelly, who says she loves it. Pam hems and haws that she doesn't know, and Kelly points out that she should try it on before she decides. Pam's like, "I don't knoooooooow," so Kelly is forced to chant -- and clap -- "Fashion show! Fashion show! Fashion show at lunch!" You guys, it's one of my favourite Kelly moments of the whole series, and the moment I have in mind when I tell people that I think I exactly split the difference, personality-wise, between Kelly Kapoor and Liz Lemon. Anyway, Pam resists at first, but Kelly's enthusiasm is obviously contagious.
Stamford. In CoD, Jim kills Andy, who whips around, enraged, and demands to know why Jim did it. Jim says he's just killing Germans any way he can, and Andy yells that they are the German team. Jim asks Karen, "Are we playing teams?" "Yeah," Karen smirks. This is why I just play Chuzzle.
Scranton. Dwight paces the parking lot, trying to exorcise his demons with super-violent arm-shaking, grunting, and...wind sprints. Finally, he crouches beside a fence and calls Jan. She tries to put him off on Michael, but Dwight says that it's about Michael. He asks her to meet him at Exit 40, where there is a Liz Claiborne outlet: "I know you like that store." He tells her to go in and shop until Dwight gets there. Jan, after a moment, asks how Dwight knows she likes Liz Claiborne, and Dwight tells her that he knows several of her blouses came from there. Jan asks how he knows that, and Dwight says it's his job to know. Jan emphatically tells him it's not his job to be aware of her preferred clothing brands. Dwight: "Noted." But clearly, Jan is intrigued -- as are we all, by the prospect of a good bargain.
