Michael is hiding behind the Reception desk and moaning when Donna storms in. Once they're in his office, he blames everyone else for "poisoning his mind." But then he admits that he can't believe she likes him. He's not alone. She tells him, "You need to trust me. Not some freak." He says he understands if she wants to dump him. She impatiently reminds him that she likes him. "Well you...are bonerific," he says, which makes her laugh and decide that they're going to Vero Beach. I bet that wouldn't have worked for Dwight.Darryl THs that he doesn't have as much of a plan as a loose structure, so he can improvise, like jazz. He performs a little scat that incorporates the phrase "you don't mess with me," and calmly concludes, "I'll figure something out." He's called Andy into his office to say he overheard Gabe saying something on the phone that included the words "Andy," "problem," and "eliminate." Andy gets the message -- by which I mean the message that Darryl wants him to get.
In the break room, Kelly quizzes Donna about the heart-shaped diamond earrings she's wearing. Donna unconvincingly claims to have bought them for herself, and tries to avoid being pinned down as Kelly rattles off the names of malls and stores, effectively turning this into a multiple-choice pop quiz. Overhearing this, Pam's antennae go up, and in a joint TH with Jim, she runs down the facts: women don't buy themselves heart-shaped jewelry, a man bought those for Donna, and it wasn't Michael. "Wait, so you like heart-shaped jewelry, though, right?" Jim asks. "No," Pam says decisively, then quickly adds, "Except the heart-shaped pendant that you bought me which I love!"
Creed walks past Andy's desk drawing his finger across his throat. Andy THs that as head of quality assurance, Creed would be part of the conspiracy. Of course, Creed tells us that "Darnell" paid him three bucks. "I've done a lot more for a lot less."
