Nellie gives Andy the results of her two assignments: research into how they can produce childproof, paper-cut-preventing paper ("We can't") and a printout of his genealogy from a website. The lede of which is that Andy turns out to be a distant blood relative of Michelle Obama's. Andy's so excited about that he forgets to hate Nellie. "This is a big day for both of us," Andy THs, meaning himself and the FLOTUS. Andy goes out and makes the big announcement. Erin, in a TH: "I was intimidated by Andy's family before, and now I have to see the First Lady at holidays?"
Andy heads into the break room, where Clark and Pete are having lunch, and they applaud his announcement. Apparently they've been doing this for some time, in response to everything Andy says or does. Which, oddly, is making them think everything he does is awesome.
Darryl is explaining "batching" to Jim, who wants to share it with Andy when the latter comes into Darryl's office. But of course Andy's more interested in his news than any kind of workplace efficiency. "Cool, man," says an underwhelmed and possibly skeptical Darryl. Andy, in a TH: "He called me a cool man."
Nellie's driving Pam's car and eating a salad at the same time, which is making Pam very nervous.
Oscar, Phyllis and Stanley are sitting in the kitchen discussing the implications of Andy's news, and how it would seem to imply slavery somewhere in the Bernard clan's past. "Well, somebody owned somebody," Stanley says, "and I don't think anybody would buy an Andy." I certainly don't buy the Season Nine version of him.
Dwight is helping Erin conjugate the Dothraki verb forms for "throat-ripping." Seems pretty straightforward. Not to mention handy for dinner at the Bernards', I would imagine.
In the Halpert-mobile, Nellie tells Pam that not only is Andy not related to Michelle Obama, "I barely know how to turn on my computer." Pam THs that Nellie's not only fearless but "Might me maybe almost sort of fun." And behind her, Nellie mimes head-clubbing the mechanic who's changing the tire. Which cracks Pam up and leaves us wondering what Nellie did to necessitate the changing of Pam's tire.
Back at the office, Andy walks into a very somber bullpen. "I'm related to the First Lady, get over it," he orders. He asks everyone to get back to work, and then, unwisely under the circumstances, mimes being a slave driver. Horrified, Oscar explains the slavery theory he's apparently shared with everyone in the office, and Andy asks, "Does anyone else think it's possible that I come from slave-owners?" Almost half the hands in the room go up, but only because most people only raise one. Darryl THs, "Whoa. That person has really gotten him or herself into quite a predicament." Okay, heh.
