Michael next finds Carol in the middle of showing a house, pretending he saw her sign outside. But of course she already knows that someone called her receptionist, claiming to be Carol's "ex-lover." Too bad Michael couldn't see the receptionist in person and show her his 2006 Christmas card.
Andy's having to meet with Gabe, who calls him on being upset about Erin, even though Gabe talked to Andy before asking Erin out. And we know it's true from Gabe's recounting of Andy's weird-ass answer, complete with Gabe's version of Andy's version of a cockney accent. Andy angrily says he only said it was okay because Gabe asked so politely, which may explain a lot about Gabe's professional success as well. Gabe says he's letting it slide, but Andy needs to put Erin behind him.
Michael finally tells Carol why he's there: a) he was told he romanticizes relationships, making them a bigger deal than they are, and b) he has herpes. "Did you have it while we were together?" Carol asks. He offers her a peek under the Band-Aid, and she says that yeah, he does tend to make a bigger deal of things. I hope she's referring to how that's so not herpes, but he's actually talking about how he proposed to her on their fourth (actually ninth)date. Suddenly Dwight enters, accusing Carol, "Someone died in the upstairs bathroom, didn't they?"
Andy parks himself across from Darryl in his office, crying. After Darryl suggests making an appointment in a quintessentially Darryl way, he realizes that Andy's crying. "I don't know what's got you upset, but my advice is stop crying." Andy insists he's only sweating. So Darryl steps up and gives Andy a strong, inspirational pep talk, telling him he will win this and to be his best self. Andy bucks up. Darryl THs, "I have no idea what his problem is. It's my standard advice. It's good advice, right?"
Michael's back in his office, leaving Holly a voice mail after what she describes as "the sound of a tiny truck backing up." That does not make me miss Holly any less, y'all. Michael says he's been thinking about what she said (derr), and how today he saw a lot of women he used to date. "In my mind, they were all great, and then when I actually saw them, it was mostly a freak show. And you and me, that must have been a real train wreck." Aw. But then he tells her she's wrong. "I remember every second of us. And talking to you today? I don't feel with them anything like what I feel for you...you were the only one who was actually happy to hear from me. I don't know why you downgraded what we had, because I did not make us up." Good for him, man. That needed to be said. Oh, and so does this: "And you should talk to a doctor because you might have herpes."Previous 1 2 3 4 5Next
