Bill reaches his office, and Don is predictably freaking out over the vandalism. Bill says the sign company is sending over a crew in half an hour. Bill wants Don to go down and supervise. Peg comes into the office, too, wearing her business clothes and pointing out that Wendy is conspicuously absent today of all days. Don doesn't think Wendy's in any shape to climb a forty-foot ladder, but Bill says she isn't exactly discreet; it could have been anybody who heard Wendy blabbering. Peg wonders about the other eight signs, and Bill says that at least two are fine, but they're checking on the rest. Don and Peg point out that the one that's been defaced is the most high-profile one of all of them. Bill sends Don out to "supervise" the billboard's restoration, telling him to be back in time for the Sherwin-Williams meeting they have at 11:00. Peg leaves too, leaving Bill to cast a hairy eyeball out at Wendy's unoccupied desk. Wendy's got the plastic cover over the computer monitor and keyboard, like she's planning to paint her section of wall or something.
It looks like Roman has decided to lift the ban on music, because his office has been temporarily converted into a recording studio. There's even a little display of CDs of The Grant Family Singers, featuring Sister Rhonda. Rhonda's laying down a vocal track for the gospel classic "Oh Happy Day," and from listening to her, I can see why Roman is so into saving souls -- there isn't a lot of it to go around at Juniper Creek. Roman and Alby barge into the room, with Joey in tow. Roman apologizes to Rhonda for what he calls "a necessary interruption." I agree with all of that except for the apology part. Rhonda's default petulant/bored expression doesn't slip an inch.
In his office, Bill takes a call from Joey and misuses the word "behoove" as he asks Joey to go see Lois and "talk some sense into her." On Joey's end of the line, we see that he's talking from Roman's office, with Roman himself listening in on an extension and Adaleen looming behind Joey. Good thing Bill's smart enough to avoid saying anything stupid over the phone, right? Roman gives Joey a "keep it going," gesture, but Bill's only too happy to incriminate himself with little help from Joey. "I have exposure here," Bill says. "I don't have to tell you that I went way out on a limb for you on this. You're talking to Mr. Cover-up. Obstruction of justice? Accessory after the fact?" Bill rings off. You know, maybe instead of using his caller ID skilz to bust his mom for calling from a Laundromat, Bill could have noticed that Joey was calling him from practically on Roman's lap. Before Joey's even hung up the phone, Adaleen walks up, pops a tape out of the recorder on Roman's desk, and sticks it into a locked file cabinet drawer. Do I even need to bother telling you that there appear to be dozens of other tapes already in there? And I suspect they aren't all Grant Family Singers demos, either. Roman gives Joey instructions that he's not to tell Bill about a UEB board vote scheduled for tomorrow. "After that, we'll see," Roman says. He assures Joey that everything will be fine. Joey doesn't look convinced as he slumps out of the office.
