The Office Recap: "Weight Loss"

by at . Comments

The Office had its much anticipated fifth season premiere last night and "Weight Loss" did not disappoint.

In this episode, the Scranton branch was up against the rest of Dunder Mifflin's branches in a competition to see who could lose the most collective weight.  The winner would receive three additional vacation days.  The team does not win but comes close

.Sorry Pam, You're Out

Meanwhile, Pam leaves the office to start her three month art program in New York.  She's replaced by the weird, older Ronni.  That is until Michael gets her replaced with Ryan, through a temp agency.  That's right, Ryan's back and starting as the receptionist.

Andy is trying to make wedding plans with Angela, who is making it nearly imposible.  Meanwhile, she has a beeper system going with Dwight for mid-day nookie.  Very sad.

At the end of the episode Jim meets Pam for lunch at the rest stop where his soda exploded.  There he proposed and she accepts!!

Michael is still persuing Hollly, but in as a friend.  Meanwhile she goes on a date with another man, a Yoga instructor, who stands her up for the Counting Crows concert.  Michael has an amazing opportunity to go with her, but instead buys the tickets off her and rips them up so she doesn't waste her money.

Great episode.  Enjoy the usual photos.
