Michael enters Jo's office, wanting to chat. She talks about being on work time rather than chatting time, and when Michael says its chatting time according to the clock, she offers to let him head on home. Provided, of course that he feels good about the work he put in today. "That's super clear-ish," Michael mopes, and takes his coat off. Looks like everyone else is staying too. "Just because Jo has no life does not mean that the rest of us don't have lives," Kevin THs indignantly. Mostly on behalf of those of his coworkers who have lives.
Michael's on the phone to Todd Packer of all people, who's already gotten a head start at the bar, and complains about having to work late. Packer has a solution: "Hike up your skirt and pull out your tampon, borrow some balls, and COME MEET ME!" Michael says maybe next year, and Packer hangs up with a witty, "Maybe next queer!" Poor Michael, missing out on quality time with that guy.
Andy shows up at Erin's front door, and she's surprised to be receiving him in her jammie-jams. "That's okay. I'm in my worky-works," he says. She rallies and invites him in.
Meredith, Kevin, and Oscar get up to make a run for it, but when Jo comes out for a snack, they quickly abort. "Oh, you don't become the most powerful woman in Tallahassee by slacking off," she says. "You do it by working hard, or marrying rich. And I did both."
Dwight gets up to go to what he tells Jim is a "client meeting" at a bar. He offers to "swing by your house so your baby can experience a strong male presence." Nothing from Jim. Dwight walks into the conference room whistling "Cats in the Cradle." Tangent: you know, my whole problem with that song is how the last verse is about how "my boy was just like me." False! "Boy" has time for his kids. Now back to the weecap. Dwight's just about to tell Jo about the client meeting when her phone rings. It's Jim, calling from his desk to ask if it's okay to go to a meeting after five, even though they never do this. Jo gives the go-ahead. Jim thanks her and adds, "Seriously, we never, never do this." After he hangs up, Jo asks Dwight what he needs, and Dwight says he's going to reschedule the client meeting he did have set up for next week. Jim takes off, leaving Dwight behind. So there.
