"A Benihana Christmas" (2006)
Hourlong episodes of "The Office" often drag, but this one was strong from start to finish. Dueling party planning committees, Michael getting dumped and marking two Asian waitresses so he can tell them apart, Dwight running over a goose and throwing his cell phone off the roof of the building in a bout of paranoia. The halls of "The Office" were decked with inspired lunacy.
