Under the normal "Art Department" lettering on the door, there's a hand-written sign that reads, "THIS IS THE ART DEPARTMENT, NOT CASTING." That's funny enough that I'll forgive the all-caps. New Girl (Lois Sadler is her name) causes the geeks both young and old working there to horn up, and then Salvatore appears and suavely introduces himself and apologizes for the mess. Lois says it's no problem: "I work in a closet all day." Be as on-the-nose as you want with this character, writers -- I'll still giggle. Lois awkwardly asks for directions to the Accounting Department, and after Salvatore gives them to her, leaves with a pointed, "Ciao, ciao!" Salvatore doesn't bat an eye at the switch-stalking, only commenting to the boys that he's glad the tie he bought worked. I think you'll soon find that it works a little too well. Young Geek and Old Geek enviously say that the ladies always talk to Salvatore, and then Salvatore heads back into his office, but not before snarking on Old Geek's (Dwayne) attire. He may be in there with the shoe trees and tie racks, Dwayne, but that doesn't mean he's wrong.
Pete's having a highball of something amber when Hildy rings and tells him she's got his wife; after some snotty and slightly drunken confusion from Pete, Hildy clarifies that Trudy is there in the office. Pete hastily shoves the drink in one of his desk drawers and rushes to the door to greet his wife, who's in a white Jackie Kennedy number, complete with pillbox hat, and toting a bottle of champagne. She wants him to go with her to the new place, but Pete claims he's got a busier day than he thought; her face falls for a second, but she brightly recovers, saying they can at least have a celebration there. She goes to sit down, and while her head is turned the other way, Pete rushes to her and turns the cushion next to her over. Keep in mind for the future that those things only have two sides, Pete. Pete, obviously spoiling for a fight, tells Trudy that he said he'd meet her there if his schedule allowed; she says that wasn't the plan, and she's there anyway, so what's the problem? The problem is obviously that you haven't gone to a secluded cabin and cooked up some wild game for your manly hunter of a husband lately. You're supposed to be one person -- does he have to verbalize everything? Pete yells that this is his office, and then, more calmly, tells her that when she just shows up like this, they fight. Trudy, for her part, says he's ruined the festive mood she was in about their apartment, so he retreats to oily and fake as he suggests they have a glass of champagne. Mollified, she apologizes for her part as well, but he really doesn't look all that happy.
