    A pretty good episode, I'm glad we finally see a good Office episode after the rocky start to the season. I still think they should stop making hour long specials, so far, they haven't proved that they're the best at filling an entire hour with material. This episode had a hilarious cold opening, the rest I found myself chuckling a bit.

    What made this episode so great was the situation. The Party Planning Committee episodes are my all time favorites of the office. Now throw in a pizza boy being held hostage, and a genius prank on Dwight, and you got yourself a good Office episode. Angela is still hurt about Dwight killing her cat, so Andy starts to make a move on her, this is the beginning to a hilarious triangle, that goes on for a while. We got a really nice Jim & Pam moment here, we got to see it without the writers trying to throw them in our face, which is always nice. A good episode of season four, stands out a bit.
