  • Crazy-Prepared: Dwight reveals that he has a wig for every person in the office, just in case.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Dwight pelters Jim with so many snowballs and with such strength that the latter quickly finds himself on the ground begging for the former to stop. Jim is shown bleeding in the next scene.

  • Disguised in Drag: Dwight gets the drop on Jim by dressing up like Pam.
  • Dumbass Has a Point: Michael points out that Holly ended their relationship because she didn't think a long-distance relationship would work out between them, and yet she has no problem doing it with her current boyfriend.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Early in the episode Dwight points out that snowballs can be dangerous because you never know what could be inside them. Case in point, there was a pebble into the one Jim threw at Dwight. The rest of the office scoffs at Dwight's warning, but after their snowball duel Jim is shown to be bleeding, so Dwight was clearly right.
  • Nervous Wreck: Jim, as a result of Dwight's increasingly elaborate snowball ambushes.
