Charlie walks into the office he's sharing with Bailey at the factory. Bailey asks him to sign some contracts and checks. Is Bailey a consultant or an accountant? Charlie asks Bailey to draw up a severance package for Mitch, the guy with whom Charlie argued earlier. Bailey wants to know why Mitch is being let go, and Charlie says it's because Mitch dared to question his superior Salinger intellect. Bailey thinks it might be better to try to work things out instead of throwing away money on a severance package, and offers to go talk to Mitch. Charlie acts all condescending and says Bailey doesn't know "a dowel from a spindle." Bailey retorts that he knows a "paycheck from a pink slip". Charlie says that Mitch needs to run the line faster, or they will start losing orders, and the business will go bankrupt. The implication is that if Mitch would only do what Charlie wants, the line would go faster, which Charlie doesn't know to be true. Bailey wants to know who will run the line if they let Mitch go. Charlie says he will do it, because he is, he is, he is Superman and he can do anything. Bailey wants to know who will run the business while Charlie is running the line and Charlie shows his business-planning acumen by claiming that they will "figure it out." Bailey says they don't have time to figure it out because they have chairs that were due more than a week ago, and people will start canceling their orders. Also, Charlie is in not, in fact, Superman, and he cannot, in fact, do everything, which is why Charlie hired Mitch in the first place, not to mention Bailey.
Julia comes over to Adam's apartment to tell him that she's coming with him to Mexico, but only for a month. Adam claims that once she is there, she won't want to leave, and wonders why she changed her mind. Julia says something really dumb that essentially amounts to this: She wants to experience life in order to write about it. Adam loves this answer so much that he hugs her and asks when she can leave. Julia says she met with the Dean that afternoon and got the okay to take time off. Okay, that does not happen. It is way too late in the semester to just bail out now, without heavy financial penalty anyway. But the Dean must be male, and Julia bent his will with her superpowers. Anyway, Julia says she also has to tell her family, and Adam hugs her again.
In the factory, Charlie is explaining to the workers how to set up the line according to his wishes. Mitch comes up and is all, "What's going on?" Charlie starts to explain, but Mitch tells him to stop because he's heard the plan plenty of times. Mitch feels that if he's in Charlie's way, Charlie should just come out and say it. Charlie denies that's how he feels. Mitch says that Charlie wouldn't be interrupting the line if he thought Mitch was doing a good job. Charlie claims it can't hurt to try his method, and if it doesn't work, they can go back to Mitch's plan. Mitch claims that Charlie doesn't trust him. What are they, boyfriend and girlfriend? This whole storyline is so lame. Who cares about the assembly line? Anyway, Mitch says that Charlie has just set him up to fail, so he quits.
