Dwight is looking slovenly at his desk, snacking and reading the want ads from behind a patchy beard. He wants a manager job anywhere else, even at Breadworks. "Bread is the paper of the food industry," he tells Pam. "You write your sandwich on it." Now I want to write a sandwich instead of a weecap.
An older candidate is dickering with the search committee about compensation, including gas and phone. Apparently that's Warren Buffett, so this would have been funnier if I'd known that. Okay, probably not.
Angela is inordinately happy to be asked out to lunch by "The Senator" at the botanical gardens. "Don't eat any berries you don't recognize," Kevin advises knowledgeably.
James Spader, playing a guy who used to sell offshore oil drilling equipment, explains to Toby how it doesn't matter what you're selling. "There is no such thing as a product... there is only sex." Toby's convinced. Gabe is concerned that Spader might be overqualified, but Spader says he wouldn't waste his own time. Jim nervously remarks on Spader's confidence, (read: redolent arrogance) and how that would work with communications with subordinates. Spader instantly reads Jim's concern that he won't be heard. "Do you feel heard right now Jim? Do you have a voice right now? You can answer me." Jim does, and Spader says it's up to the steamrollee to be steamrollered. He even steamrolls Jim into agreeing that he would never let himself be steamrollered. Then he smirks at the camera, and at everybody in the bullpen as he exits, and at the camera some more. Jim: "He creeps me out, but I think he might be a genius."
Time for Darryl's interview. Andy wishes him luck on the way in. Cut to Darryl riffing to the search committee on mammals and milk, and getting up before the official interview actually starts. Gabe gives him an out by letting him play it off as a joke, and Toby stats by asking about how Darryl would handle interpersonal conflicts. "I thought that was your job," Darryl says, and ends up floundering when they press him for an actual answer. And seeing another black candidate being shown in throws him even more. Not to mention Jim's request for a resume, which Darryl didn't even know he had to have. Not like him to be so unprepared, since he's been positioning himself for this for about a year.
