Oscar asks Andy why he's back early, and Andy duhs that this is his super-romantic Valentine's Day surprise for Erin. He presents her with a couple of bamboo sticks and expects her to join him in an impromptu performance of some island music on the spot. "Hey, Burning Man, if it's not selling out too much, you might want to throw on a tie," Dwight interrupts. "David Wallace is gonna be here in an hour." Andy says that's why he's here. Oh, and also for Erin (who repels another hug attempt). It turns out that Andy never technically told Wallace he was gone for three months. "But we've been in touch the whole time. It's not hard to get high-speed Internet in Turks and Caicos, people." Erin looks visibly disgusted, for reasons that become clear with a quick TH inset from her saying, "He only emailed me four times." That's actually twice as much as I thought he had. Andy asks where Jim is and wonders why he's at lunch for two hours. Oscar pointedly asks if long absences from the workplace concern Andy. "If the shoe fits, "Andy non-answers. I think he means loafer.
At lunch, Brian is talking to Jim and Pam about the end of his marriage and suddenly breaks down into tears. "We have to find a different way to communicate other than breaking down in front of each other," he says to Pam. "At least my crying won't get you fired." Which is all clearly news to Jim. "Crying?" he asks, taking his hand from the back of Pam's chair.
Andy congratulates Dwight on landing the White Pages account, but dings him for not getting pricing approval. From Andy. "You were on a boat," Dwight grumbles, and refuses to agree that they're "coolio." So to win the point, Andy calls up Jan on the phone. Once she's on the line, Dwight desperately hisses "coolio" several times, but it's too late; she's so disgusted at Andy calling her after the fact to price-gouge her that she cancels the contract on the spot. "That was not how I had hoped that would go," Andy understates.
