Ed Helms is a tour de force in “The Return.”
This Season 3 episode is a masterclass of heightening as Andy becomes increasingly unhinged due to Jim and Pam stealing his phone, which is an admittedly dick move, and the deterioration of his relationship with Michael. From Helms’ brilliant delivery of the line “Large Tuna. Have you seen my cell phone device?” to Andy punching a hole in the wall out of frustration, “The Return” is a top to bottom classic.
“You, me, bars, beers, buzzed. Wings. Shots. Drunk. Waitresses, hot. Football. Cornell/Hofstra. Slaughter. Then a quick nap at my place and we’ll hit the tiz-own.”
As it turns out, it wouldn’t be the last battle between Andy and the wall.
