The Office: Last Night's Most Relatable Moments

It's difficult to pick the most relatable moments from last night's episode of The Office, because the whole thing had me flashing back to previous office moments of my own! Well, except for the ferris wheel and fireworks at Toby's going away party. But the whole premise of being suspicious of a new co-worker — in this case Toby's replacement, Holly — was pretty spot on. While we (hopefully!) don't creepily peek through blinds and watch the new person like Michael and Dwight in the clip below, there's certainly plenty of judgment surrounding a new employee on her first day.

Most of us have probably been on both sides of the situation — we've felt like the new kid at school and slightly territorial when somebody new joins the team. Dwight says to Holly, "Have you met Kevin, he's here on a special work program. He's slow, ya know, in his brain." Then he follows up with the camera and says, "Hazing is a fun way to show a new employee that she is not welcome or liked." I don't know about hazing, but there's definitely a suspicious curiosity that surfaces when a new employee comes along. Check out the clip below of Michael and Dwight plotting against Holly, and if you missed last night's season finale BuzzSugar has the full recap.

emalove...I thought the same thing. Plus, on the other side of things, what happened to Jim reminded of my husband. He had planned to propose at the end of a sunset cruise on vacation, but another couple got engaged on the cruise in front of everyone (with the tour guide narrating). He actually had a few other things get in the way of his proposing throughout the vacation, so when he finally found the perfect moment I know it was somewhat of a relief to him too.

I related to the sadness that Pam felt when Jim didn't propose...I know what it's like to get your hopes up for that and when it doesn't happen when you expect it to, you can't help but be disappointed.

In my opinion, last night's episode was the best since they came back from the writer's strike. haha.. Holly thinking Kevin was "special" and he kept on giving her reasons for thinking so! I was SO SAD for Jim & Pam. LOVE THEM. stupid Andy. and that very last scene! HA! I totally wasn't expecting that!
