The Office 818 Review- Saving Schrute

Nellie- "You may not cancel his soul."
Robert- "That was never on the table."
There are few things better than when a couple of rivals put their differences aside, even if just for a moment. Since the feud between Jim Halpert and Dwight Schrute is one of the most iconic rivalries on television, their momentary truce in "Last Day in Florida," was especially enjoyable.

It took a while for Dwight to get to that moment, but once he did, his outstretched arm to help Jim up off the floor might have been the most human we have seen out of the beet farmer in the history of The Office.

It helped that we witnessed Jim trying, trying and trying again to help Dwight out in the situation. He mentioned earlier that it was not bittersweet but sweet that Dwight was staying in Florida for good, but when Jim realized his rival was going to get fired for no good reason, he had to save Dwight. It was great to see.

The enjoyment of these two getting along wasn't the only positive to come out of this storyline. We also got the hilarity of Dwight revving his engine by sliding his feet on the rug, jumping off the wall while screaming "Jackie Chan," and smacking Jim's present off of a tee like it was a golf ball.
To read the rest of my review of last night's The Office, head over to TV Fanatic.
