Andy's in the bathroom dousing himself with booze. Gargling with it, though, proves to be a bad idea. "It's go time," he says after he recovers. Cut to him in the bullpen, pathetically offering Nellie a bowl of tomato soup, which he spills on himself and the freshly mopped carpet and then licks off his dirty coverall to the horror of all assembled. Later, while he's waiting for the elevator, Erin catches up to him and reminds him that even though there's going to be a great payoff, "After you're manager, some of these images are going to be hard to shake." Andy starts to explain, but Erin wisely says, "Just calibrate. Okay?" When did she get so smart?
Dwight comes after the baby with a pair of nail clippers, but that doesn't work either. Neither does the cheek swab. But the baby makes a poopie, so the senator carries him out of there for a change while Dwight watches with a Joker-like grin.
Darryl leads the two ex-warehouse guys down to talk about how great Val is, right outside her open office door. Hearing this, she smiles, but the previously-unseen Brandon sticks his head around the door and accuses, "That's some pretty blatant complimenting you're doing there, man. I don't even talk to her like that." Darryl says he would and freely admits that yes, he's hitting on Val. "Just so everyone's on the same page." Brandon scoffs and insults Darryl's weight. "Good slam," Daryl says calmly. "Good luck to you." He doesn't actually mean that, you know.
The Senator returns to the portrait studio, but Angela says the photo session is over. Dwight, however, is next seen carrying a bag out of the bathroom. "No! Dwight!" Give me the diaper!" Angela shrieks, pursuing him all the way to the exit -- and out of the parking lot, in the second car chase on The Office in as many episodes.
Toby gets Andy into the conference room for an intervention with Nellie, Kevin, Darryl, Pam, Jim, Oscar and Erin. Andy assures them in an old-man voice that he'll be fine, but Jim's not buying it. "What was that accent? And last time I checked you were drunk, now you're not drunk?" Andy checks his watch, and gives Erin a significant look. Realizing she needs to fill time, Erin says he's been taking it out on her. The others react in actual horror and Andy tries to calibrate that, but is relieved to hear a knock in the conference room door. "Happy birthday to Gabe!" Gabe says, coming in with a party hat and a sad little cupcake with a candle in it. "Oh get out, Skeleton Man!" Nellie blares, sending him scurrying. Andy's cell phone goes off and he suddenly breaks normal as he ducks out to take a call from Wallace -- who apparently isn't going to make it until next Friday. So now Andy has to drop the act and says that although it won't be as delicious as he thought, it's still a tasty surprise: "I got my old job back!" That proclamation, and the supporting information that David Wallace hired him back, only earns him more sympathy. And the news that Wallace is now a multimillionaire from "Suck-It" is even less convincing. Erin assures the others that he's not making it up and tells him about talking to David Wallace all the time. But when they ask if she's ever seen Wallace herself, she seems about to join the intervention for real. "Do you see David Wallace in the room right now?" Toby asks carefully.
