Ryan poses with another sign, this one a "missed connections" ad aimed at a blonde from the coffee shop.
Wallace and Robert -- sorry, Bob -- emerge from the conference room. Wallace explains that with himself as the new CEO, Bob will be redundant, but Robert explains how he'll be traveling the world "educating" young women right up through college age. "Especially the gymnasts. They've lost so many years of crucial education." The employees look on in disgusted disbelief as the former Robert goes on at great length and grossness. Then he gives Andy a big hug, and a kiss on the lips. "It's been a great year," he lies. Good call, Spader. Get out while you can.
Angela rushes to the lab and finds Dwight in the waiting room, awaiting the results that will come out... in 72 hours. She sits down next to him and takes his hand so they can wait together, I guess. After a minute he grabs her and kisses her. To her credit, she resists for almost ten seconds.
Meanwhile, the Senator (with the baby) emerges from the elevator to find Oscar at the coffee shop. "You didn't call." Oscar stammers about his concern with some issue, but the senator interrupts, "You know what this is about. Call." Then he cocks an eyebrow and leaves Oscar gasping for air. And probably a can of Geh-ee®.
Season Eight, everybody. Word just came while I was doing final revisions that the show will be back for a ninth season, but probably without Dwight, Kelly or Toby. See you next fall for the Jim, Pam, Andy and (maybe) Ryan show!
