I think getting Joss Whedon to direct the episode was even more genius! There's a video on youtube (I think the link was somewhere on the news page of imdb.com) of Joss talking about the episode and it's hilarious.Originally Posted by Realitychick;2243212;
I teared up a bit in that scene with Pam and Michael too. I love that every time he's just a complete ass, he then does something completely sweet and kind. The thing is, in both cases he's usually totally clueless about his behavior. Whenever he tried to be nice, he ends up being an idiot.
