Pam shows Phyllis her comic book. "Money problems, is that what this is about?" Phyllis asks. She's clearly not too impressed either.
Holly bursts into the party with her coffee-soaked Woody, demanding to know who did it. "I don't think Erin seems to like you," Phyllis suggests. Michael tries to blame Toby, who calmly says it seems more like something Michael would do. Kevin seriously wonders if Woody did it to himself. Angela agrees with Toby, and Michael says he's clearly being framed. Andy asks why anyone would do that. "Okay, why are we discounting this Woody came to life thing so quickly?" Jim wonders. Michael laughs and says it was part of the party. "Someday, I think we will laugh about this, when we tell our kids..." "Yikes," Jim murmurs, with a similar echo around the bullpen. Michael says it was an accident...borne of jealous feelings. Holly says she doesn't feel that way about him any more, so Michael reminds her of her reaction to his fake girlfriend. Holly's not any less pissed, and after asking what's the matter with him, starts to storm out. Michael stops her, saying she told him she couldn't "do this" when he drove her to Nashua, but now she doesn't have any problem with a long-distance relationship with this new guy. "And you know what? That is what is the matter with me...And we did this whole stupid party for you." He stomps into his office, and when Holly goes to follow him, Erin blocks her way, so she's left standing there with everyone staring at her. She says it wasn't her fault. Kevin roars, "Nothing is ever your fault! Just like when you ate those maple candies that you brought for us!" Now Holly has to slink out rather than storm.
Erin tries to cheer Michael up, and when he asks her to find his street clothes, she pauses in the doorway and asks, "Is she an amazing cook or something?"
Jim sits down at his desk to find a present there, addressed to "Pickles" from "Swiss Cheese" and with a note saying "open immediately." Of course, when he does, a spring-loaded ice cream scoop catapults a snowball into his face. Everyone laughs while Jim Dwights, "Dammit, Dwight!"
Stanley's jealous of Toby's jury duty, which has been his dream since he was 18. "To get to sit in an air-conditioned room, downtown, judging people, while my lunch is paid for? That is the life."
Darryl's daughter is bored, and asks to read her book in her office. Darryl agrees, but Pam looks pained at overhearing her plea. She goes to Darryl's office and asks for their "help" finding the Christmas tree star that a "Grinch" "stole" and "hid" in the warehouse. They follow her down to where Andy seems to have set up a little Whoville and is currently acting as Grinchy as he can, draped in random coats and blankets. This seems to be going well until Andy starts quizzing her with political questions. Darryl tries to get it back on course by suggesting the Grinch give her clues to find the star, but then Andy produces it with some awful sleight of hand. "And the game's over, seconds later," Darryl sighs.
