Jim busts Michael having a meeting in his office, and tries to break it up, pointing out that they agreed to no more meetings. After trying to weasel out of it and make Jim look bad, Michael tells Jim that when it comes down to it, "What I want is more important than what you want." Jim disagrees. Michael throws the question out to the attendees, who don't give a clear answer. Jim says that per Wallace, he's a co-manager, but Michael isn't agreeing. "That is not how I heard it," Michael insists. Well, it wouldn't be.
Kelly talking-heads about how much she loves rivalries, but when it comes right down to it, "I have to go with LC. Heidi's a bad friend and her skin is terrible."
Michael is now in Jim's office, saying, "It is one thing me giving you the co-manager title, it is another thing you bossing me around." Ignoring Michael's claim that the promotion was his idea, Jim denies that's what he's doing, and offers to call David Wallace to straighten this out. Michael says he'll call David Wallace, but Wallace is already calling on line two. Jim takes it at his desk and Michael sits down, saying, "This is Michael, senior co-manager." Wallace gets right to the point: there will be no cost-of-living raise this year -- just a small amount for each branch, which the managers have to decide how to use. Jim and Michael are already sniping at each other before Wallace is even off the phone (and Michael is texting him), and Wallace asks warningly, "This is not going to be a problem, is it?" Both co-managers reassure him, and Jim hangs up. Turning to go, Michael says he's looking forward to it. Jim tells him not to lie, so Michael obliges: "All I can see is how big and gross the pores on your nose are." "All right, let's get started," Jim says agreeably. I'm suddenly aware of two things. 1) Jim does have a bit of a honker, and b) I'm glad I don't have HD.
