Michael interviews that the only thing that could improve a day that involved the news of Jim and Pam's relationship and the return of Ryan would be ice cream. It's the first of many references to delicious snack food that Michael will be making in this episode to test your resolve not to put some pants on and run out to the 24-hour Duane Reade that you don't even have to cross any streets to get to from your apartment. Or, like. Whatever.
Dwight and Angela meet at the elevators, where Dwight excitedly unveils a gift he's brought for Angela: a feral barn cat! Named Garbage! Because it's what he likes to eat! And if that doesn't sound unappealing enough, let me just add that the "feral" part of Garbage's CV apparently means he's forgotten how to clean himself, because his fur is so matted, it looks like he's been rolling around in Vaseline. Actually, the hair on the cat's head doesn't look so different from the hair we'll be seeing on Creed very shortly. Anyway, Angela tells Dwight that she isn't interested in adopting a new feline friend. She storms off, and Dwight decides to re-gift Garbage to Vance Refrigeration. I swear, as soon as I saw there was a trash can in the corner of the hallway, I figured Garbage would be meeting the end his name foreshadows.
