Back at the office, Jim and Pam are trying desperately to calm the kids, or at least clear them out of there, while their coworkers look on in mounting horror. Jim promises to be right back as soon as he gets Pam and the kids into the car, but the employees say they'll just see him tomorrow. As Darryl puts it in a TH, "I have a kid. Last week, Jim at home? That was no vacation." The Halperts exeunt omnes.
Dwight returns to the office puffing on a cigar and emitting clouds of paternal smug almost as thick as the smoke. Gabe shows up, wondering what Dwight wanted to tell him, but Dwight's over it. He THs of Jim, "He was doing it for his kids. I get it. Kids drive us dads crazy. Sometimes I feel like they're raising us. Am I right?" Indeed, he's putting a set of those family decals on his car's back window, showing a dad and a son. Angela's going to love that.
