Later, or maybe the next day, or who knows when, Michael's back undercover, in a suit with no tie. Nobody notices the fact that when he presents himself at the reception desk, it's at the same time Spencer's arriving for work. Michael introduces himself as Jeremy Dresner from IT and Consulting, and demands a visitor's badge. As he wanders around the office cockily, he VOs, "In medieval Europe, spies used to pose as lepers and plague victims so they could snoop around without being bothered. In today's corporate office, posing as IT works the same way." Whoa, I can't imagine there are a lot of IT people out there who would be flattered by that comparison. "It's the perfect cover if you need to linger without being bothered." Sure, as long as no one on the office has been getting persistent error messages. "And it gives you a pretext for talking to almost everyone." With that, he approaches Shannon Park outside her office, gives a fake introduction, and says he needs to talk to her about an internal audit. While he's got her thus distracted, Spencer sneaks into her office. It doesn't take him long to plug in a thumb drive and do some fast typing, which is good because it doesn't take Park much longer to blow Michael off, pretty rudely. Michael comes right back at her, just as rudely, because it's not like he needs to give a shit. After she reenters her office with a slam of the door, Michael asks her assistant for a bathroom key. "You're my hero," she whispers to him as she hands it over.
She doesn't know the half of it, because now Michael's going to use that bathroom key to forge one for Shannon's office. "All you need to beat a tumbler lock is a little information and some stone-age tools," Michael VOs as he works on making a homemade copy of that key. "If you know the basic kind of key you need to spoof, take out a matching blank, file down the valleys to the central ledge, and you have a bump key. Apply torque, whack it with anything handy, and you're in." I know the show doesn't want to give out information that people could use to actually break the law, but maybe it would be better to not do it at all instead of pretending to with a VO that doesn't actually make any sense. Michael tests his bump key on a little lock he has handy, just like they did in the Stone Age. Fi enters, and Michael invites her along to the airport. He wants to "pay a visit to that front business Barry found." Fi complains, he snaps at her, and he finally leaves, saying he'll go alone. As if he's not better off doing it that way anyhow. They agree they'll have to discuss this out eventually. "Just not right now," Michael says. I agree; that sounds like something that can wait until the end tag.
