"Dwight thinks it's Friday...so keep that going."

Performance Review (Season 2, Episode 8)

Jim Halpert

Dwight Schrute

After Dwight tries, and fails, to get Jim to give himself a bad performance review, Dwight attempts to zone him out and mentions how he won’t have to see him tomorrow or Sunday. Apparently, the Schrute’s aren’t known for their time keeping. With Jim in firm grasp of this knowledge, he gets to work. After recruiting Pam as a cohort, Jim drops a message to a friend and mentions getting together on the 15th, which Dwight points out as Saturday. Pam comes over and can’t help but join in the fun. Commenting about “last night’s” episode of The Apprentice and how shocking it was. Too bad for Dwight, he was getting drunk with his laser tag team. Dwight didn’t help anything when he went into Michael for his performance review and made mention of how he had never been late. Ever…

…until Friday. Dwight didn’t realize he needed to be at work, until about 12:20 pm. Dwight runs in half-dressed and half-shaven. The only thing that I wonder about is what set off to Dwight that it actually was Friday instead of just staying at the beet farm all day.

3 – Dwight brought this upon himself. Jim certainly came up with a few different ways to make sure Dwight thought it was Friday, but overall it was fairly dull.

Length Taken
6 – Looking back, Jim did a mere two things to make sure Dwight thought it was Friday. First, he called his friend to meet up with him tomorrow; as in Saturday. The other was Pam coming in and mentioning The Apprentice.

Special Award
Partner in Crime Award – Pam gets her another one of these. Pam almost carried the whole prank on her shoulders with The Apprentice joke.
Foot in the Mouth Award All Dwight had to do was live out Jim’s hijinks until the day was over and he probably would have figured it out. But, Dwight can’t let little things go, prompting his first ever recorded late day.
