I don't know if I should bump that thread, or create a new one. Please merge threads if you'd like.

Was it a good episode tonight? I had to DVR it and will watch it this weekend.

Thought it was a bit uneven. The opening was a bit too much for me, and I wanted to punch Jim and Pam during their cutesy joint talking head segment. Still, some great lines.

"I loooove tea."
"If I can't scuba, then what is it all for?"
"Who started the rumor that there's a little man inside of me that controls me with levers?"
"Michael, am I gay or not?"
"...but then I thought, Pam doesn't need padding."
"Hello, Cynthia?"
"I'm so glad you're eating again." "Oh, me too."

Best line of the night from Michael: "It's like the end of Spartacus. I have seen that movie half a dozen times and I still don't know who the real Spartacus is. And that is what makes that movie a classic whodunnit." Absolutely priceless!

Several great moments. Personally, I loved the Parkour segment. So Michael.

THe Spartacus thing was classic as well.

I'm worried Pam's pregnancy will be a show killer.

Yeah, I thought they broke out the preggers plotline waaaay too soon. Many a TV show has died from that trite and over-used plot device, as you mention (along with consummating a relationship that should be kept professional or platonic). OTOH, maybe Jenna Fischer has a bun in her real life oven. Sometimes that's why the "surprising pregnancy" angle pops up in TV shows - so they can keep filming without resorting to cinematographic tricks to try and hide it.

I can't believe I missed this! Totally forgot about the start of the network season (this actually seems a bit early).

Everything people have worried about killing the show has been wrong so far.

Very good episode last night. Loved it when Michael was hidden under the makeshift cheese tray.

Yeah, the cheese tray gag was brilliant. As was Michael's questioning of Oscar at the beginning.

I don't usually enjoy Meredith, but her dialogue with Pam over the closing credits was fantastic. "I'll have whatever's fanciest, unless there's ribs."

Man, the guy they have playing David Wallace is so golden in the role. You don't know if he's the most patient man alive or one of the dumbest. Dunder Mifflin makes a lot of insanely sitcommy decisions as a corporation, but that actor really helps sell it.

Have you guys seen Jim and Pam's official wedding site? http://www.halpertbeesly.com Check out some of the guestbook entries.

Andy explaining the cheese tray was hysterical. Micheal hiding under it was lame. Overall, I felt like this episode played more as a soap opera than a comedy.

What do the beans mean? Funny stuff. Watching everyone turn against Jim was a little uncomfortable to watch though.

Best episode of the Office ever.

The wedding scenes were great especially the dancing to Chris Brown's Forever song.

Some of the highlights:

"Can you take Andy to the hospital? He tore his scrotum dancing. He is in my room icing his balls."-Pam

Love the seduction CD from Dwight.

Kevin wearing tissue boxes because his shoes were incinerated.

Dwight kicking bridesmaid in the face.

The opening scene with the vomiting was hysterical.

GREAT Episode! It was the PERFECT Office wedding. Every character had a perfect character moment. Just great! LOL'd for an hour. Maybe the best episode of the series.

Thanks for providing the quotes -- while I was watching the episode I thought Pam said "...I see his balls" and was surprised the writers got away with that line. Your version makes more sense.
