MICHAEL TAKES GOOFING OFF TO A NEW LEVEL - IDRIS ELBA ("The Wire") GUEST STARS - Michael's (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) relationship with the new vice president (guest star Idris Elba) becomes increasingly tense, as Michael finds an excuse to goof off even more than usual. Meanwhile, Pam (Jenna Fischer) faces the challenge of a new copier and Kelly (Mindy Kaling) develops a crush. Rainn Wilson, John Krasinski, Ed Helms, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Angela Kinsey, Phyllis Smith, Oscar Nunez, Craig Robinson, Creed Bratton and Paul Lieberstein also star.


Well, LOTS of questions to be answered in tonight's episode-- what will Michael do now? How the reign of Charles Miner be overturned? What, exactly, will happen to all of those figs?  Can't wait to see how this all plays out.

As always, leave your comments below, and join Kevin and me in the TWSS Chatroom during and after the episode airs.

There was big controversy in some fan forums this week as some suggested that Michael Scott didn't really "quit" in last week's episode, "New Boss." Instead, they surmised that he said "I acquit."  Matt and I discussed this on TWSS Podcast Episode #66 and indicated that we didn't think it was "acquit" and that moreover if that really was what Michael said it might be a "jump the shark" moment.

I'm pleased to report that The Office's cutest cast blogger has settled the controversy. Jenna Fischer writes in her MySpace blog:

Jenna there is crazy Controversy if Micheal said "I quit" or "I acquit".  Look at any message board, it's crazy.  Can you please set the record straight? – Erock from Fenton, MO

He said “I quit”.  And he meant it.  You will see how it all plays out this week on the show.

I'm sure we'll all the info we need on tonight's episode. But for those who really want to know, we can thank Jenna for being plugged into the concerns of the fans.

Also, with Brian Baumgartner and Melora Hardin joining Twitter in recent weeks, I predict Jenna Fischer will be Twittering by April 15th.

Episode # 66 -- "New Boss" (3/19/09) Episode # 66 of THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID finds both Matt and Kevin wondering just how high they can fly. If the figs don't fit, you must quit. Michael's 15th anniversary party plans go awry when new VP Charles Miner goes from BFF to mean manager. What? No Cirque du Soleil? Inconceivable! Jim gets classy AND dissed all in the same day, Angela and Kelly fight for the attentions of the black George Clooney, and Michael makes a monumental decision - or DOES he?
