The Office - Duel

My TV Guide said Ugly Betty would be on at 8 pm. So I rushed home, scarfed down dinner, raced to the gym and did an abbreviated version of my workout just so I could get home in time to watch...


Hello? TV Guide People! Some people actually schedule their lives around their favorite programs so get your schedule right!

Obviously I really need to get TiVo.

What I did get to watch was the inevitable showdown between Dwight and Andy on The Office.

Seventeen days and still clueless about Angela's affair with Dwight? Poor Andy. Michael takes it upon himself to break the news to him--in a long drawn out way as they walk to Michael's car. As Michael drives off for a meeting with David Wallace at corporate, he tells Andy that Angela is having an affair with Dwight.

Andy confronts Angela asking her "Are you sleeping with Dwight?"

"A little bit," Angela replies.

Meanwhile, Michael is meeting with David Wallace who tells him in the face of the economic downturn, the Scranton branch is doing well. Better than all the other branches as a matter of fact. Mystified by this, Wallace asks Michael, "What are you doing right?"

This leads Michael to the same circuitous and tortuous explanation that he did previously with Andy. "An improv improversation" is how Michael describes it.

Back at the office, Andy and Dwight agree to duel and Angela agrees to abide by whomever wins.

"I've had two men fight over me before. Usually it's over who gets to hold the camcorder," boasts Meredith.

"I can't believe that they're going to fight over me!" exclaims Angela.

"I guess people have fewer choices as they get older," shrugs Kelly.

In the parking lot, Andy distracts Dwight by pinning a note to the wall. As Dwight stands reading the note, Andy sneaks up in his Prius and pins between it and the fence.

You go, Andy!

As the two argue, Dwight realizes that Angela lied to him as well when she told him she was only sleeping with him.

They two return to the office. Andy calls and cancels the wedding cake. Dwight disposes the bobble-head Angela gave him into the trash.

So there were no winners, but one loser.


If you missed the episode, you can catch it at CastTV.
