At the desk, Casey is still listing his good qualities to Allison. Now he's saying he can cook. And once again, I'm comparing myself. So listen up, fool: mix one can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, one quarter cup of water, one cup of chow mein noodles, one can of tuna (drain it), one cup of chopped celery, one-third cup of chopped onion, half a cup of cashews. Spoon it all into a greased two-litre (two quart) casserole dish and cover the top with more chow mein noodles. Cover the dish and microwave it on high for 10-12 minutes. That's some old-school tuna casserole, D-Train-style. I'd make it for Allison here, who asks why Dan has his fingers in his ears. Allison doesn't get nearly as many lines as she did before, and Casey just blows her off with a "don't worry about it" and comes in after the reporter at the Orioles game, which Casey refers to as "an auspicious outing for Scott Erickson and the lefty Orlando Rojas." Then Casey rolls his eyes and bangs the desk really hard, which is Dan's cue to unplug his ears (the desk-banging part, anyway; I'm pretty sure the eye-rolling was all Casey). Dan ends the show, and everybody starts congratulating each other on what a good show it was, and in the control room we briefly revisit the whole "pumped" nonsense, and for me it was like in horror movies at the end where the killer is dead but there's one last false-alarm scare to piss you off. Dana quietly tells Natalie to tell the graphics department that the wise thing to do would be to leave the building now. Okay, this was funny the first time, but are they trying to have us believe that the graphics department is suddenly Dana's arch-nemesis? I mean, we're never going to hear about this again.
