In the kitchen, Andy interviews that, three months ago, he was nowhere -- just a Cornell grad in anger management. But look where he is now! The camera pans down to show us that not only is he washing out someone else's "World's Best Boss" coffee mug; he's washing it for someone who's borrowed it from some other delusional crackpot.
Back at Corporate, Jan's assistant, Hunter, comes out to the reception area. Michael greets him in a way that is possibly a tad too familiar. He introduces Hunter to Karen and Jim as a secretary ("administrative assistant," Hunter corrects), and asks if Jan is there. Hunter says she'll be coming in later, and Michael asks him to give her a message: "Tell her I want to squeeze them." Behind him, Jim nods. "She'll know what it means," Michael asks. Hunter's like, "Pigeons know what it means." Michael has an addendum: a lusty performance of the classic "motorboat" maneuver. Hunter takes off before Michael starts miming a handjob or something.
Michael interviews that two weeks ago, he was in the worst relationship of his life, with a woman with whom he didn't connect. Now he's in the best relationship of his life: "With the same woman. Love is a mystery." And yet saline: actually pretty straightforward.
In New York, Jim and Karen emerge from the Astor Place subway station. Karen asks what he wants to do first. He suggests a visit to the UN, and then admits that he's only been to New York on a sixth-grade field trip. I'm sure that covered all the high points. Was Scores open back then?
Michael comes out of the office in his coat, announcing that the next time everyone sees him, he'll be working for Corporate, and Dwight will be running the branch. He says he wants to start saying his goodbyes...and commences by turning on, like, a Dictaphone, which plays that song "Kind & Generous" by Natalie Merchant (you know -- with the "thank you, thank you"). He melodramatically says, "Good night, and good luck," and heads out. As soon as he's rounded the corner, Dwight snaps off the Dictaphone, grabs his own nameplate, and sticks it to Michael's "former" office door, yelling, "Who's ready to work?" Everyone looks horrified -- except Angela, who looks like she might be in the mood to consolidate some power.
In New York, Jim camera-talks that he and Karen went to the Spotted Pig for dinner, a place Karen knew. Then they snuck into the second act of Spamalot, and went to a bar that used to be a church, where Jim is sure he saw Lorne Michaels. Karen, behind him at the ATM, says that wasn't him, but Jim mouths to the camera that it was. It probably was -- even I've seen that dude out in New York before, and not in the building, either. (Last actual 30 Rock celebrity sighting: Joel, the announcer from Conan. Before that, it was Max Weinberg, in the gym.)
