The Office Rundown: Episode 14, "Goodbye, Toby Parts 1 & 2"

The Office Rundown: Episode 14, "Goodbye, Toby Parts 1 & 2"

OMG, where to start?! The season finale of The Office was so. Freaking. Great. I honestly think this is hugely due to Amy Ryan's spot-on performance as the new HR lady at Dunder-Mifflin. I loved her! And then there were all the twists and turns (that didn't just have to do with Pam and Jim, like that very last scene!). And the whole storyline with Kevin is, I think, one of the funniest, cleverest things I've seen on television in a long time.

The going-away party for Toby was amazing! It made me so happy for the new party planner in town, Phyllis, as though she's an actual person I know in real life. Sometimes I think I get too involved in these shows. I really wanted to give her a hug.

Also, thanks to Creed, there now exists the job title of "Quabity Aschwitz." Amazing.

What did you think about this finale? Were you as delighted by it as I was? Check out SavvySugar's "most relatable moments" post, complete with a clip from the show. For some of the parts I thought were the best and funniest, and to share your thoughts,


  • The episode began with a good old-fashioned prank from Jim. I don't know how John Krasinski keeps a straight face as Dwight is reaching his fingers along his face, trying to grab the ear piece. Too funny.
  • Kelly: "I can't believe this is your last day. How do you feel?"
    Toby: "Fine. Good."
    Kelly: "I feel weird."
  • Michael says he wants anti-gravity potion and Pam doesn't miss a beat. "So, how much anti-gravity potion do you want?"
    Angela: "No, you know what, this is not a party planning committee anymore. And I don't want your foot money and I feel uncomfortable participating."
  • Pam, about her going to design school for three months in New York: "The timing is pretty much perfect." She lights up: "And that is the first time I've used the word perfect in here." She's so freaking cute.
  • Dwight says he hates the new HR lady because "She stinks. . . with her. . . ways and her. . . head."
  • Michael: "Thanks to Toby, I have a very strong prejudice against Human Resources. I believe that the department is a breeding ground for monsters. What I failed to consider, though is that not all monsters are bad. Like E.T. Is Holly our extra-terrestrial? Maybe. Or maybe she's just an awesome woman from this planet."
  • Seriously, Holly thinking Kevin is mentally challenged is probably not too P.C. but it made me laugh until I was choking on my own laughter. He offers her an M&M. "I keep them here at my desk so that everybody doesn't take them."
    Holly: "Well, that is a very safe place for them!"
    Holly, later: "You drive your own car?" "I'm proud of you!"
  • Creed, trying to sound out what his job is: "I shoulda written it down. Qua-something. Qua, quar, quabble, quow, quab. . .quabity! Quabity aschwitz! No. No, but I'm getting close."
  • Michael, making a "CD mix tape" for Holly, possibly using "Crash" by Dave Matthews Band.
    Michael: "What's the group that was from Scranton that hit it big? Was that U2?"
    Jim: "Yup."
  • Toby's affection for Pam fluctuates from sweetly adorable to a little icky. "I would love a picture of the two of us to take to Costa Rica."
  • Jim, after giving Phyllis money for fireworks at Toby's party: "I'm going to propose tonight. Holy crap!" Squee!
  • Angela shredded her list of vendors. So Phyllis slides books off Angela's desk. "Sorry."
    I love it when Phyllis gets mildly mean.
  • I'm so glad that Michael's attempt to berate Toby is thwarted by Pam and Holly joining in, and he then has to ask his mean questions in an innocent voice. "Who do you think you are?"
    Toby: "I'm. . . Toby."
  • Michael got Toby a rock with a note attached that says "Suck on this." And he made Dwight wrap it.
  • After Oscar explains Ryan's fraud: "The real crime, I think, was the beard."
  • Mose Schrute! He uncages a raccoon into Holly's car.
  • "Jan didn't believe in showing affection so sometimes I don't know how to react when a girl touches me. So. I like it!" Michael giggles.
  • Michael's songs include "Beers in Heaven" (which is "very sexual") and "Total Eclipse of the Fart."
  • Pam, about Toby: "Don't tell him I said this, but I always thought he was kinda cute." So bittersweet!
  • Here's the line I laughed at the most: "You cheated on me? When I specifically asked you not to?"
  • Jan: "If I was 22 and I had lots of time to have lots of children then sure, let's let Michael have a shot at one of 'em. But honestly, I need to make this one count."
  • So Andy Bernard is the one to ruin Jim's proposal to Pam by proposing to Angela!
    Angela: "OK."
    Andy: "Into the mike, sweetie."
    Angela: "I said OK."
  • Aww, one of the great tragedies of The Office: Just as Michael has a not-so-weird flirtation with a woman (Holly), he learns of Jan's pregnancy and it messes everything up.
  • O.M.G. Phyllis happily explains that party planning gives a high, like a runner's high before walking in on Dwight and Angela doing it in the office! Discuss!

thank goodness that the writers came to their senses! this episode was definitely the best of the season! i must admit that i didnt have high expectations after such a mediocre 4th season, but i was proved wrong in this last episode. i was disappointed that jim didnt propose to pam, but the episode was still very funny and i actually laughed out loud for the first time in a while. great episode and i cant wait for the next season!

That finale was all-around FANTASTIC. Dwangelaaaa! I wonder if the writers anticipated how much we anticipated the last 30 seconds... My heart, like, bleeds for Michael. I giggled when Holly yoda-ed him back. Another thing that sucks about Jim's unproposal? Jim blew all that fireworks money on Andy's proposal.

FINALLY! ever since the writer's strike all the episodes have been missing "that something" but they finally got it back! IT was so AMAZING! by far the funniest was Holly being convinced that Kevin is special! "Do you want an M&M?" and later she says "Wow, it must be a big day for him, party AND the supermarket!" and when he waves to her from his car! priceless! I AM SO MAD AT ANDY!!!!! Pam was so sad!!!! sigh....I'm going to miss this over the summer

I sooooo love this show. I am glad that they are not putting Pam and Jim together so fast. As long as they don't prolong it, then I am ok with it. I felt so bad for Michael. He was having such great chemistry with Holly and now he is going to be a daddy...well sorta. Dwight is that man!

" There is nothing I hate more than when writers keep lovers apart unnecessarily and for ridiculous reasons, just because they think conflict is necessary for a romance to be interesting." Exactly!

I want Jim and Pam to get engaged, but have a long engagement. I think that just because characters get together, it doesn't mean that everything will always be sunshine and light. And happiness doesn't always equal boring, as long as you have great writers, which I believe the Office does. There is nothing I hate more than when writers keep lovers apart unnecessarily and for ridiculous reasons, just because they think conflict is necessary for a romance to be interesting. I actually thought that Jim would propose in the last 30 seconds at the end of the show, so we were all glued to the screen. Had no idea that we'd be seeing Dwight and Angela going at it!

This is an AWESOME EPISODE! I loved everything about it! I couldn't stop laughing! I was so sad for Jim when Andy stole the spotlight from Jim without even knowing it! and Go Phyllis!! I love it when she stands up to Angela. That last scene was probably the best 'last scene' ever!!!! I cant wait to see what happens next season!

This was one of the BEST EPISODES!! I couldn't not stop grinning....Toby kinda creeped my out with all his pictures of him and Pam, and that whole thing with Jan and her baby is just mean, but it made for an amazing finale! Can't wait for more of the Office! :D

Ha! That was one of my favorite parts too, radarkitty!! This episode was AWESOME! It was like they flipped a switch back on. I'm saving it on my DVR too. :D And I can't wait for next season!

Awesome episode! I was happy to see Tobey go. I feel like Michael does with that guy. He just kind of ruins the whole HR experience for me. :) Loved Holly. Loved Kevin. LOVED Creed! And I'm really happy that lil wimp Ryan is gone. It was priceless when Kelly said: "I cannot wait to visit Ryan in prison. I'm gonna wear my hottest track suit, and get my hair done, and then be like, "Hi Ryan." And then all the other prisoners are gonna be like, "Damn! Ryan, you got a hot ex-girlfriend. Ooh, I would never have treated her so bad when I was outside of prison." :rotfl:

It seemed to me that almost every plot line got turned on it's head! It was brilliant. Micheal loves HR. Pam and Jim didn't get together. Angela and Dwight... Pam heading to NYC... WHEN IS THE MOVIE!!!

Oh god. Kevin and the whole Holly thing had my laughing forever. Definitely one of my fave episodes. Dwangela is my favorite Office couple, I absolutely loved the ending.

Holly thinking Kevin is special is perhaps the best thing ever. I was like dying of laughter every time those two had a scene together! Also, I thought it was kind of sweet that Michael was going to help Jan raise the baby even though it wasn't his. Jan's a bitch, but Michael was sweet about it never-the-less. I was so pissed the Jim didn't propose to Pam! Gahhh! Made me soooo angry! But I did like the twist with Andy and Angela and then Angela hooking up with Dwight and Phyllis catching them! This was definitely the Office at its best. Although I am sad to see Tobey go...

The Kevin-Holly thing was genius. Seriously. I wanted to reach through the tv and punch Micahel in the face for sticking by that horrid bitch Jan and giving up a chance for Holly. Michael, WAKE UP! I knew something would get in the way of Pam and Jim. If they leave the show, there's no point in keeping it on. I always love when Mose Schrute is on. I think he's my favorite character. And Dwight and Angela! My jaw dropped. And then I squealed. That was a long time coming.

AMAAAAZING!! I laughed so hard I could barely breathe. The Dwight/Angela sex scene? EW EW EW! And poor Angela, her face is so big from the pregnancy! She looks really different. I loved the Kevin thing. The best part was, after Dwight told her that, no one else was in on it. Kevin was just himself and it all played perfectly. It was genius. And darn that Mr. Andy Bernard! I wanted them to get engaged!!! I felt so bad for Pam at the end. But even worse for Phyllis. Yikes! And how cruel is Jan? That is like the meanest thing ever. Seriously. Holly is so much better for him. And doesn't seem like a psychopath.

I really hope that Jim not proposing at the party doesn't make her question their relationship. They are so sweet together. I have to say that one of my favorite parts of the entire episode was Holly finding Kevin in front of the vending machine and coming in to give him a hand with getting a snack. "Let's see how much you have to spend. Twenty-five cents, fifty cents, ah, that's a button..."

Oh, I hope to see more Angela v.s Phyllis to see who gets to be american next top party planner:) Luv the line about Human resource as a breeding ground for monsters!

Best post-strike episode yet, and it's a finale!! I have to agree with EVERYTHING that buzzsugar says. The most hilarious plot is between holly and kevin. She is so careful when she talk to kevin, it's hilarious! And also, she seems to be on the same wavelength as michael, hope they actually would end up together. But I really hated Andy for proposing before Jim, but I guess that's the shock! Nothing compares to the last 5 seconds of the finale though:) Hopefully Pam wouldn't be too disappointed about Jim:(
