Later, Pam goes up, ostensibly to fax something, but really to whisper to Erin, "I was engaged to someone before Jim. And he worked here, too." Erin of course thinks it was Andy at first, but Pam's point is, "It's not about who you've been with, it's about who you end up with. Sometimes the heart doesn't know what it wants until it finds what it wants." They share a little moment. "I hope you find what you're looking for," Erin finally says. What can Pam say but "Thank you?" Then she kisses Jim appreciatively on the head before sitting down. That went well for him, at least.
Oh, and here's why they're even still there, even after being suspended: Gabe's in the stairwell, on the phone to I guess Jo, learning that he can't suspend or reprimand anyone. At the same time, Toby's calling Pam to tell her that Gabe's full of shit. At this moment, Gabe comes in to give a little speech about forgiveness, while Pam is passing a note to Jim. Gabe is magnanimously offering to revoke their suspension if they apologize. Jim and Pam admit that they really need to take their medicine, while Dwight gets up and apologizes, kneeling and making a big production while Gabe desperately offers to accept a contrite look in lieu of an apology from the Halperts. But he just ends up following them to the parking lot, and getting left in a cloud of their exhaust.
Andy and Erin are having it out in the parking lot, and he's revealing his other secrets: "Yeah, my chest is not naturally hairless and my parents pay my credit card bill." Erin asks how long they were together, and he says a year, and now she knows everything. Erin wants to be alone for a while, like in Precious, based on the movie Push by Sapphire.
Gabe returns to the bullpen, suggesting, "It's best to pretend this never happened." Oscar figured they got to go home with pay. Gabe offers to buy everyone coffees. No response. "Or cookies?" he panders, to the disgust of everyone. Except Kevin, who stands up and does an impression of Gabe. That gets a laugh. Dwight even joins in: "I have to go back to the zoo, to the stick insect exhibit." Okay, that's hilarious. Kevin brings it home with a few sarcastic iterations of "Ciao," and Gabe suggests, "Why don't we say 'ciao' to the impressions?" Everyone says "ciao" to Gabe, mockingly. Can't wait to see his next plan.
