Jim heads next door and tells Robert that Nellie's giving out raises. Robert's a bit surprised, but when he asks if Jim wants one, it throws even Jim briefly. Robert says that Nellie stepped into the fill the vacuum Andy left by refusing to come in. And in terms of the explanation he's about to give, Robert offers Jim a choice between a nature metaphor and a sex metaphor. Jim jumps at the former, but the nature metaphor (which is about animals having sex) doesn't work so Robert switches to the sex metaphor: "All life is sex. And all sex is competition. And there are no rules to that game. And there are no rules to that game. Now that wasn't so perverted, was it?" Robert says that the only person in charge of every office in America is Charles Darwin. And that's pretty much the end of the discussion. I think Robert's working harder to not do anything about this than he would to do anything about this.
Nellie gives Kelly her fake review and possibly-fake raise. Meanwhile, out in the bullpen, Jim is saying that accepting the raises means it's okay for someone to walk in and take someone's job. Dwight decides that's exactly right, and tries to steal Darryl's office, until Darryl drags him out by his hair. "Well fought, I accept the outcome," Dwight says with dignity. He approaches Creed, who without looking up says, "Touch me and I'll sue."
Erin comes outside to see Andy fiddling with Irene's fountain and opens up about how he broke her heart. Andy says she broke his too, but she maintains that he broke hers more recently and more often. Erin concludes that they're not meant to be. "I'm so sorry that we have not loved each other at the same time," Andy says. Erin knows it. They hug and part ways, as the camera zooms out to reveal Irene's grandson smoking shirtless on the roof of the house.
