Back at the party, it's gotten dark and the fireworks have begun. Pam and Jim snuggle in lawn chairs. Dwight and Kevin applaud together. Phyllis and Bob Vance from Vance Refrigeration kiss. Poor, single Toby just shrugs at us over his beer bottle. Angela warns Phyllis that this is the last party she'll ever plan. Is this feud going to pay off, ever? Jim eases that ring box out of his jacket pocket, and says to Pam, "Hey." And suddenly Andy makes his first appearance of the episode, hijacking the microphone and stopping the band. Oh, by the way, his parents are here. He's got something to say to Angela, and won't be discouraged by her head-shaking scowls. Which, I guess if he ever was discouraged by that, their relationship wouldn't have lasted this long anyway. He leaves the stage, pulling Darryl's synth off its stand. Yeah, Andy's proposing to Angela. And her answer? "Okay," she whispers. "And the crowd goes wild!" Andy celebrates, to a smattering of applause. Dwight, naturally, is devastated. Jim eases that ring box right back into his pocket. That'll learn Pam to shoot her mouth off to the cameras about perfect timing.
Andy once again proves himself the anti-Jim as he THs that he's been carrying that ring around for six years, because you never know when you're going to meet the right girl and have the right moment. A subdued Dwight tells us, "Well, it's my own fault." Wait, did he just acknowledge the unacknowledged?
Andy runs up to Jim and Pam and excitedly Tunas about being engaged and becoming "Mister Andy Bernard." And Toby reminds Pam about the picture of the two of them. Meredith snaps it, but can't seem to get a decent smile out of Pam. Yeah, she really thought Jim was going to propose. Well, what do you think happened there, Pam? Toby tells Meredith to keep shooting as long as she wants.
