Recap / The Office USS 8 E 14 Special Project

Go To

Andy tells the staff that Sabre wants to send some of the staff to Tallahassee to work on a project to develop a chain of retail stores. Dwight is given the lead spot but clashes with Andy over who he can bring as the rest of the staff vie for spots on the trip. Meanwhile Jim is personally invited to Tallahassee by Robert California and tries to get out of it but to no avail.

Ultimately, besides Dwight and Jim, Andy gives the remaining spots to Stanley, Ryan, and Cathy, who is later seen talking to her friend about her plans to seduce Jim. Erin also asks permission to go along, saying it would be an opportunity to clear her head, but confesses in a talking head that she doesn’t plan on coming back, obviously still heartbroken over Andy.



  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: And how! Cathy seemed harmless up to this point, but at the end of the episode she makes clear her plans to seduce Jim.
  • Hidden Depths: Although initially dismayed with who's been selected for his team, Dwight realizes that each of them actually does have some smart ideas and unique ways to contribute to the project.
    Dwight: Stanley, a solid player. Ryan, who is capable of surprises. Erin, an excellent follower. And Kathy, a probably not totally useless enigma. And, well... Jim.
  • Precision F-Strike: Dwight, several times, as Andy lays down who his final team members are.
  • Spanner in the Works: Jim throws all of Andy and Dwight's team consideration into disarray by revealing that Robert has personally invited him down to Florida.
  • Wham Line: From Erin. "I'm going to Florida... and I'm not coming back."

How well does it match the trope?
