In the tag, we learn that other members of the staff have taken some of the dogs off of Andy's hands. Kevin's happy about how his dog Ruby just lies there all day, barely eating, not pooping, and having to have her eyes propped open in front of the TV. The others start to ask questions indicating that they suspect something really sad is going on at Kevin's house, like how Ruby smells. Kevin cheerfully admits that she smells horrible, but he's afraid she'll drown if he gives her a bath. His idiot coworkers exchange sympathetic looks. Then we cut to Kevin at home, lying on the floor, talking to his motionless dog. "People seem awful interested in you, Ruby," he tells it. "Guess they're just jealous, right?"
