Andy's in his car, saying this wasn't how he wanted it to go. Just then Erin comes running out into the street, shrieking that she loves him and banging on the car window. Only it's someone else's car. "This is the wrong Prius. I don't love you. I'm sorry." I bet he's not. Andy stops in the middle of the street and gets out of his car, and Erin runs into his arms and kisses him while his car blocks the intersection. Erin's ready to jump into the car and go with just the clothes on her back. She doesn't even need to go back for her toothbrush, on account of how she doesn't actually own one. "There's always one around," she explains to Andy. "Have you ever heard of buying a toothbrush?" This is going to be a long drive back.
Late at night, Nellie works her way through the bullpen, messing with people's desks as she VOs, "I grew up poor. I had little formal education, no real skills, I don't work especially hard and most of my ideas are either unoriginal or total crap. And yet, I walked right into a job for which I was ill-prepared, ill-suited and somebody else already had and I got it. If you ask me, that's the American Dream right there. Anything can happen to anyone It's just random." And the camera zooms out just enough to show the nameplate reading "Nellie Bertram" on the manager's desk. Yes, it is random. It's all random. That's kind of the problem with this whole season.
