Recap / The Office USS 4 E 3 Launch Party

Go To

As Dunder Mifflin Infinity launches, Michael gets irate when he learns that he's not invited to the party in New York. Dwight attempts to win back Angela, this time by beating sales made by the website. Phyllis attempts to use "how to deal with difficult people" tips she learned from a website, on Angela, who is insufferable after her breakup with Dwight. Andy sets his sights on Angela.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Jim and Pam prank Dwight by pretending to be the Infinity website and claiming to have achieved sentience. Dwight, naturally, is prepared for such an eventuality.

  • Beard of Sorrow: Dwight has stopped shaving since breaking up with Angela.
  • Blatant Lies: Upon being told that he is actually not invited to the party in New York, Michael tries to claim he is already in the city, "in the main part."
  • Character Development: Phyllis starts her arc of standing up to Angela.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Michael, after Kevin tells him that Jim wanted to get out before the cops became involved with the pizza delivery boy being held in the conference room, and it finally dawns on Michael that he's essentially committing a kidnapping.
  • Pet the Dog: Pam, feeling sorry for Dwight after Angela rejects his attempt to win her back, sends a final message as the website acknowledging Dwight as the superior being.
  • This Is Gonna Suck: Kevin, when explaining that the pizza place Michael ordered from is terrible.
    It's like a hot circle of garbage.

How well does it match the trope?
