Michael hangs up Phyllis's phone while she's in the middle of a call and tells her to knit like the wind until 4:00. He then hands Dwight an envelope, containing a letter of recommendation. In a private TH, Dwight starts to read us the letter mockingly, but can't get through it without choking up. Dwight tries to keep it in, but there's a business card in there as well. "2:45 behind the building, paintball." Dwight checks his watch and excitedly runs off. Of course he's got all his gear and ammo in the back of his Trans Am. He suits up and waits behind the building, until he thinks Michael has stood him up, but then Michael jumps out of the dumpster in his hockey pads and opens fire. So that's Dwight crossed off the list.
During the sales call, Deangelo is... not talking Andy up, exactly. "You go with this guy... it's either gonna be the best thing you ever did or the worst thing you ever did. Ever play Russian Roulette? Time to spin the chamber, Boris. By signing up for another year." Well, the good news is at least Andy won't lose this client.
Michael returns to the office disheveled and with paint in his hair. "You should see the other guy," Michael tells Jim, earning a smile from Dwight. The clock reads three, straight up, and Michael asks where Pam is. Jim says she's pricing shredders, and when Michael whines that it's three, Jim shrugs -- and then, when Michael heads into his office, makes his thinkiest face ever.
Yeah, Pam went to see The King's Speech. D-d-d-d'oh!
Michael triples up with Creed, Gabe, and Meredith. "There's not enough time in the day to have a special moment with everybody," he explains to us. Especially when you spend an hour trying to catch the warehouse guys on the flippity-flip. Gabe's not done, though, and after the others have left, he vows to either quit today or stay and destroy Andy's career. Michael insists this won't be Gabe's last day, and that everyone gets dumped. Fortunately, he has some advice: "A little cover-up on your Adam's apple will make it appear smaller, which will make you look less like a transvestite." Well, it got Gabe out of the room, at least.
Deangelo gracelessly leaves the client's office, but Andy says he forgot his bag so he's going back and he'll meet Deangelo outside. With his bag clearly hung over his shoulder, Andy returns to the ex-client's office to apologize for Deangelo's behavior, and promises to be the one to take his call if he renews the contract. "Keep talking," the guy says. When Andy meets Deangelo out by the car, Deangelo gets off the phone telling him, "We did it!" and gives him a long hug that's even more inappropriate than Andy's red pants.
