The Office 6x3 - "The Promotion"

Three best lines, I think:

Kevin: "In the memo line, I'm gonna write, "To love's eternal glory."

Creed: "Why haven't we ever--?" Meredith: "We have."

Oscar: "Where could Catholicism be without the Popes?"

Two heads aren't better than Michael's one head, especially when one of those two heads is still Michael's.

The problem with Jim's promotion, which the writers hit on right away, is that his coworkers don't respect him as an authority figure. They don't respect Michael either, but they're used to him. 

Jim's idea to only give the sales staff raises would obviously be seen as a maneuver to benefit Pam and him, but Jim couldn't even see that, blinded as he often is by his own good ideas. (Like when he wanted to combine people's birthday parties.)

It's a weird dichotomy to the Jim character that he's so against Michael wasting everyone's time but he loves wasting his own time to mess with Dwight.

Episode was okay.
