Recap / The Office USS 2 E 11 Booze Cruise

Go To

As a leadership training exercise, Michael invites the gang on a Booze Cruise. In January.

Air date: January 5, 2006

Tropes

  • All Guys Want Cheerleaders: Inverted. Katy was a cheerleader in high school. Jim is unimpressed.
  • Brick Joke: After Michael compares the cruise to Titanic, we cut to Jim addressing the camera:
    Jim: Michael stands in the front of the boat and says that he's king of the world within the first hour, or I give you my next paycheck.
    • After everyone gets on board, Michael does just that, prompting the cameraman to focus on Jim, who checks his watch and confirms.
  • Butt-Monkey: Subverted in a deleted scene, where Toby was intentionally late to the cruise.
  • Advertisement:
  • Dumbass Has a Point: The advice Michael gives Jim.
    "Engaged ain't married. Never, ever, ever give up."
  • Shout-Out: Several, to Titanic.
  • Side Bet: "Michael stands in the front of the boat and says that he's king of the world within the first hour, or I give you my next paycheck."
  • Sweater Girl: Lampshaded by Roy. Pam was "artsy-fartsy" in high school and wore a lot of turtlenecks.
  • Wham Episode: Jim works up the courage to talk to Pam about how he feels, but then Roy finally decides on a date for the wedding.
