Mindy Kaling (Kelly) made her directorial debut as Pam and Jim work on their first sales pitch together to Donna, the manager of a local restaurant.

Michael keeps misreading the signals that Donna, familiar to viewers from "Happy Hour" a few weeks ago, is giving. He think she's really into him.

It turns out everyone else was similarly confused this time, though, so it wasn't merely Michael alone bungling a situation for everyone else to see.

It was nice to see him not be the obvious butt of a joke for once, although he still kind of was, and Pam was even sympathetic to him at the end.

Where does Donna fit into the long-range dating plans of Michael Scott? That we will have to wait to find out. But looks like she might be a keeper.

Elsewhere, Gabe encourages Darryl to apply for the minority executive program at Sabre. Dwight, upset that he cannot apply, hatches a plan.

He tries to install Kelly as the minority candidate instead, so as to manipulate her from behind the scenes. The snag? Ryan sees the opportunity too.

Looking at his girlfriend as his own ticket back to management status, he is all for the idea, gets more attention, and frustrates Dwight.

Just once, can't a puppet master get a break?

The Office Season 6 Episode 23 Quotes

Dwight: How do I apply?
Gabe: You have to be a minority.
Dwight: Uh, glasses wearers? Cholera survivors? Geniuses? Non-organic family farmers? The list goes on and on you want me to keep going?
Gabe: Those don't really count. We're thinking more, ethnic and racial minorities.
Dwight: Come here, come here. Ten seconds ago this guy was driving a forklift, OK? Now all of a sudden he's Cinderella of the office. What are you guys thinking?
Darryl: I like the sound of this. Maybe someday I'll be sitting in Michael's chair. Wouldn't that be something.

Just once, I'd like to be a puppet master and have nothing go wrong. Is that too much to ask?
