Kevin and Andy are in Michael's office, complaining to him about the parking situation. Since he's got his own assigned parking spot up front, it takes him a minute to try empathizing, even after which he decides to leave it up to Andy and Kevin to solve the problem. "We won't let you down," Andy promises. "Can't, 'cause I don't care," Michael agrees.
In the break room, everyone's filling out their cards. Jim's suggestion? Pam's mom. Times like this are when I wish we did full recaps for this show, because boy could I go off on the subject of Michael as Pam's stepfather.
In Michael's office, Michael calls his first candidate, a "hot & juicy redhead" named Wendy. Yes, in fact it is the number for a Wendy's restaurant. Michael places an order just to get off the call. Dwight comes in with the last batch of cards, including his own, which reads "chairmodel." Yes, Dwight's on the case. As soon as he picks up Michael's food from Wendy's.
And indeed, Dwight is as good as his word. He's made a bunch of calls, and discovered the model's name and the fact that she's based in nearby Wilkes-Barre. Alas, she is also really dead. Vehicular mishap. Just think about that for a second: one minute you're on top of the world, everything going great, your life coming together, and the next, bam, you're gone, and you never even knew about the horror awaiting you in April of 2008. Michael takes the news hard. After Jim says something kind of insensitive, Pam takes pity on Michael and hands him a card. "I don't think I'm ready," Michael gasps tearfully. "Is she hot?"
Kevin wants to assemble the bosses of the "Five Families" of Scranton Office Park: Michael, Bob Vance of Vance Refrigeration, Paul "Cool Guy Paul" Faust of Disaster Kits Limited, W.B. Jones, and Bill Cress of Cress Tool & Die. "Super old and really mean," is how Kevin describes Mr. Cress. But Michael's too busy brushing his teeth on the office sink to care, because he's off to meet Pam's friend. Because everything has to happen in one day on this show, no matter what.
