Holly, Erin, and Dwight are at the gas station looking for Michael. Holly asks the cashier which way he went, and Dwight snaps at her for asking such a stupid question, when it's obvious that Michael went towards the office. Holly argues that Michael might have gone the other way, just to enjoy the smells of the bakery that lies in that direction. The cashier confirms Holly's theory. Elsewhere, Michael is going in no specific direction at all.
After ads, Michael wanders into a pet store to give advice to the puppies, compliments to the parrots, and brutal truth to the snake.
Dwight calls Pam from the road to find out if Michael's checked in, and he hasn't. He's even more brusque than usual, and is even more so when she asks him to pick up some chocolate syrup and paper towels while he's out. Dwight yells at her, hanging up with a rude, "Pam I'm obviously going to get that stuff for you, so just shut up!" Dick.
Pam puts up a new doodle, this one showing a pair of anthropomorphic cartoon dogs in tattered pants, standing on a tiny desert island with a single palm tree. Everyone's all excited, but Gabe will only let this proceed under his rules: no anti-Sabre captions, no pop-culture references (so as to prevent anyone who doesn't get the reference from being left out, like that's anyone but Gabe), and use "Sticky Quips" instead of writing them directly on the picture. Sticky Quips would be a new Sabre product, basically Post-Its shaped like word balloons. After Gabe pitches them to us in a brief talking-head, he tells everyone to go ahead. Everyone heads straight to... their IM chat windows.
Michael is at a hot dog stand, trying to pawn his watch for a hot dog and getting nowhere. Then he spots a Chinese restaurant whose sign boasts eggrolls big enough to feed China. Which may or may not be true, but they're at least big enough to draw Michael into their gravitational pull.
Dwight comes out of the grocery store ("Too many brands," he explains to an impatient Erin) to discover that Holly has been filling out a form for a new cell phone. Both they and the kiosk lady are annoyed to see she was just trying to get a free stress-ball by putting down the name "Fanny Smelmoore." Picking up another form, the sales lady tells her to say hi to "Orville Tutenbacher," a name Erin and Dwight recognize as a millionaire who farts popcorn. A Michael Scott creation, of course. Dwight and Erin realize that Holly is the key -- follow her, and she'll lead them to Michael. Sure enough, Holly has spotted a bench sign with a familiar slogan and muses, "are their eggrolls really that big?"
