Jim and Dwight enjoy some cake together near reception. And at the end of an hour, Dwight walks into the conference room and wakes Kelly up by slamming a couple of metal trash can lids together. Where did he even find those in this day and age? Wisteria Lane? "Now go back and make up for the work you missed while you were taking your nap," he tells a groggy and docile Kelly. "Many happy returns." Pan back to the "IT IS YOUR BIRTHDAY." banner. Well, I think that was the best Dunder Mifflin-Scranton birthday party ever.
Driving once again in the gathering dusk, Michael is so excited about his "closure" that he wants some more. "Let's go apologize to Roy," he suggests. Pam doesn't think so, so Michael starts thinking about other people he can apologize to. Like, "that fat guy from Stamford I insulted." Pam remembers Tony's name, but Michael's too busy using his mnemonic device to remember it himself: he was fat, fat people like pizza, pepperoni, which rhymes with "Tony!" But then he remembers how fat Tony was, and realizes that he could never apologize. Because he was sooooo fffffat. I think Michael grew up a lot this week, don't you?
