The episode: Conflict Resolution

The player: Jim

The prank: This is one of the most brilliant ways I’ve seen of showing Jim’s pranks against Dwight without showing Jim’s pranks against Dwight. It’s nothing more than a list of previous pranks that come out during Michael’s ill-fated conflict resolution session.

What makes this list spectacular is that we don’t even need to see the pranks to know how awesome they are:

  • Someone replaced all Dwight’s pens and pencils with crayons. Dwight suspected Jim Halpert.
  • Everyone called Dwight “Dwayne” all day (totally worth the five bucks a person Jim spent)
  • Dwight knocked himself in the head with a phone (Jim filled Dwight’s handset with more and more nickels until he got used to the weight, and then he took them all out.)
  • Every time Dwight typed his name, it came up “Diapers”
  • By the end of the day, Dwight’s desk had moved two feet closer to the copier
  • Dwight found a fake bloody glove in his desk drawer. Jim then tried to convince Dwight that Dwight had committed murder.
  • An abandoned infant in the woman’s restroom led to Dwight seeing Meredith “on the can”.

I love Jim’s slow realization that perhaps his tormenting of Dwight isn’t the nicest thing to do. A little character growth never hurt anyone. However, it’s Dwight and his levels of annoyance can reach stratospheric heights, so the pranks are a necessary evil. Also, they never fail to make me laugh.

Entry filed under: awesome, television.

    I sometimes wish I had a Dwight to torment. But then again, I’m really glad that I DON’T have a Dwight.
