Recap / The Office USS 4 E 6 Branch Wars

Go To

Stanley approaches the Utica branch for a sales position, for more money. Michael retaliates by getting Jim and Dwight to prank Utica. Pam, Oscar, and Toby start the very exclusive Finer Things Club.

  • The Bus Came Back: We find out that Karen is now managing the Utica branch, after Jim dumped her at the end of the third season.
    Turns out it's a pretty easy gig when your boss isn't an idiot and your boyfriend's not in love with someone else.

  • Eye Scream: Dwight really, really wants to gouge out someone's eyes.
  • Have I Mentioned I Am Gay?: Oscar notes that, besides having sex with men, the Finer Things Club is the gayest thing he does.
  • Kill It with Fire / If You Ever Do Anything to Hurt Her...: Dwight says he will burn Utica to the ground. Then Michael says if Karen hurts Stanley...they will burn Utica to the ground.
  • Only Sane Man: Jim fills this role while trying to keep Michael and Dwight from doing something really stupid. It backfires.
  • Potty Emergency: After Michael and Dwight fall down the stairs, Michael mentions he wet his pants.
  • Shout-Out: To Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Michael sets up a sleeping dummy in his office. Stanley asks how Michael sleeping is any better than Michael leaving the office.

How well does it match the trope?
