Review and Recap of The Office Episode "Murder"

The Office, "Murder": Best Lines of the Night and Video!

Well, I do declare! This week's The Office was silly good fun. Distraught over rumors of bankruptcy, Michael suggests that the employees engage in a murder mystery game called Belles, Bourbon and Bullets to keep their spirits up. Pam's recent bad attitude seems to lift as she gets into character, and Andy uses the opportunity to ask Erin on a date. (I can't wait for when those two finally hook up!)

Ready to take a look at some of my favorite quips from the episode (and share your own in the comments)?

  • Jim: "With all due respect to everyone here, I think the most worthy opponent of you is you."
    Dwight: "That is correct. Unless there happen to be measles present."

    How awesomely ridiculous is the opening scene where Dwight tries to fight himself during his own karate instructional?! That right there is why Rainn Wilson gets nominated for Emmys.
  • For more funny lines, plus a video of the Clue-like antics,

    .

  • "Your feelings journal? You told me to put it in the time capsule."—Erin
    Check out Erin delivering yet another great quote this week! I'm curious to see what the writers do with her character, especially now that they're setting up this will-they-or-won't-they thing with Andy that's slightly reminiscent of another Office couple.

  • "You can all have jobs at Schrute farms as human scarecrows. It doesn't pay much, and you can't unionize."—Dwight
    Leave it to Dwight to concoct a plan when news of the company's money loss hits the Scranton branch.

  • "Operation got me through my vasectomy, i.e. my operation. I don't think I would've been able to endure my breakup with Holly had it not been for Toss Across."—Michael
    Michael explains his use of board games as a coping mechanism to Jim, but my favorite part is when he plays "Lullaby" by Sean Mullins on his computer to wallow in his sadness. Anyone else remember that song? Love the '90s nostalgia!

  • Kevin: "Now do the Swedish Chef."
    Andy: "I'm not familiar, what province is he from?"
    Kevin: "He lives on Sesame Street, dumbass."

    Andy does such a good job with his Savannah accent using his "molasses" technique that oddball Kevin asks him to talk like the Swedish Chef from Sesame Street. But I have to mention Creed —I was dying when he shows up to the office, hears about the "murder," and speeds off in his car! Also, kudos to the crime scene with Meredith and to Oscar for putting on the strangest accent I have ever heard. Check him out in this video:
  • "Today is the hardest I have worked in a long, long time."—Michael
    Sad thing is, Michael's probably telling the truth.

So what's your assessment of the evening? It sounds like there are tough times ahead for everyone, since David Wallace says the company will be out of money by the end of the year. What do you think will happen? My hopes are that Michael and Dwight will cook up some solution that doesn't involve scarecrows. And what do you make of the Erin and Andy romance — do you want to see it happen?

Don't forget that you can discuss the episode in full over at The Office! group in the BuzzSugar Community! Here are two words to get you started: Tube city.

Totally cringe-worthy/early-episodes Michael moment of the night was when he was so deep in character that he refused to talk to Wallace. Loved it.

Oscar's attempt at a southern accent had me cracking up so bad! I can't wait to see the Andy/Erin relationship progress. The end of the episode ("doing it for the kids") was really touching.

Hey Anonymous! I love 30 Rock, but unfortunately my plate is already pretty full on Thursday nights thanks to The Office, Grey's, Flash Forward, Vampire Diaries, and Project Runway. That being said, I totally welcome your recap on the site. If you start a group in Community and write one up for next week's episode, I'll definitely consider posting it!

I was dying when Kevin said "He lives on Sesame Street, dumbass" because the Swedish Chef is from the Muppets. Also loved Creed peeling out of the parking lot in that boat of a car!

I felt so bad for Andy! I think he and Erin would be great together. I would love to see her character develop more. I thought this episode was great! Dwight fighting himself was one of the best Office moments ever.
