Michael meets the crew at the bar, and they're already drunk enough to be happy to see him. Michael THs that he may or may not have screwed up his future with Jo. "If Jo wants me to put on a show for her and pretend to work late? I spent all day trying to make her like me, and I forgot to ask myself something: do I even like her?" Packer comes up behind Michael at the bar and pretends to sodomize him. "Best night ever!" Michael says. And then Meredith comes up behind Packer and pretends to sodomize him. And then...then... she doesn't really seem to be pretending. Oh, dear.
Dwight comes into work in the morning and stops dead. We hear Jim on a sales call, and then we see him -- behind his own megadesk, whose configuration is one desk stacked on top of the other two in a pyramid so that Jim has to work standing up. "This is not Megadesk!" Dwight says in confusion. "They call it quad-desk," Jim says. Dwight points out that it's three desks. Looking around, Jim realizes they'll have to rename it, then. Dwight's desk phone rings, in the tiny alcove formed between the two bottom desks where Jim has stuffed his phone, nameplate, computer, and a tiny little baby chair. Dwight crawls in and answers his phone. I guess Dwight's Microdesk! would be the fourth one.
