THE SEARCH | 02.03.11

W: Michael Spiller

D: Brent Forrester


Jim gets an emergency phone call from Helene (Linda Purl), forcing him to leave Michael at a gas station bathroom. This leads Holly, Erin, and Dwight on a search for the whereabouts of Michael. A captioning contest starts in the office over Pam's artwork, which seems to offend Gabe. 


Nothing much to say about this one, other than it reminds me of the classic episode of Seinfeld where Kramer is "lost" in NYC and Jerry has to go and find him (cue Daniel Day Lewis in LAST OF THE MOHICANS quote...).  Glad to see Gabe mentioned prominently in the episode summary, as he seems to have had little to do for the last few episodes.  I'm also kind of rubbing my eyes in disbelief as Andy isn't mentioned ONCE! Can it be? No Andy in the A or B plots? Unthinkable :)
