Pam asks for volunteers to accompany her on the tree run. Kevin's afraid to get dirty, because there might be girls at the party, even though there never are. Andy's "'brid" (his hybrid) won't accommodate a tree, "which is ironic considering how many trees it saves every day." However, he's got a hookup to a guy with a pickup. Yeah, that would be Darryl. Pam decides to ask him, but Andy still wants to go along. You know, as the hookup guy.
Darryl has just gotten the news that this daughter is bailing on him for Christmas in favor of "family." "I don't know, I thought I was enough family for my daughter," he tells us. Awww. He's still in this mood when Andy and Pam come in to ask to borrow his truck. He initially shoots them down, but then agrees to join them for the fresh air.
Toby shows up, to Michael's great distress, but he just came for the party while the jury's in recess. He's a temporary celebrity here, although he keeps coyly saying he can't talk about it or he'll get removed. "And then he will come back here and replace Holly, so stop asking him questions," Michael moans. Toby knows what's going on, but figures this is a good way to get people talking to him. For such a sad-looking guy, he's really an eternal optimist.
Jim waits out in the parking lot, but no one's there and Dwight's not answering his phone. But when Jim turns to go back inside, the doors are chained shut behind him. While Jim freezes in terror, Dwight bursts out of the snowman behind him and starts pelting Jim with snowballs out of a big backpack on his chest, driving him to the ground. "I have no feeling in my fingers or penis, but I think it was worth it," Dwight THs proudly. He empties the backpack on Jim, who we then see entering the office disheveled and soaked and bloody and getting helpful text messages like "How about icing it? LOL Dwight." Advantage: Schrute.
Holly enters with a new haircut and a couple boxes of stuff, and asks Erin for help. Erin declines, saying, "I'm waiting for my boss's pretty friend to arrive." Michael comes out, acting as cool as he can while asking Erin to "help her for God's sake." Everyone watches their reunion, complete with goofy voices that keep going all the way into the hello hug. Kevin asks what she brought them, and Holly admits that although she brought a box of maple candies from Nashua, she got a little hungry on the drive. Holly comments on the "super classy" décor. They dork-voice all the way back to the annex, while Jim manages a dutiful, "Aw." Also, since their dork-voices include both "gay" and "Mexican," Oscar gets to do a rare quadruple-take.
