At the Chinese restaurant, Michael has finished his lunch. He almost gets away with pulling a dine and dash, but once he's outside, he thinks better of it. He comes back in to make a big confession, and to promise to come back later to pay, but the waiter is not impressed. He calls a large chef to come block the door. The entire door. This is a very large chef.
The search party arrives at the Chinese restaurant, but the only remaining sign of Michael is a Polaroid of him holding a sign reading "THIEF." There's a whole wall of these photos, which I can't imagine makes for a very restful dining experience. Holly claims this is all a coincidence, and after Dwight acts like the waiter can't speak English, and the three of them head off downtown to follow up, we get a closer look at the THIEFboard. Yes, of course Creed is up there.
Gabe wonders why there are no captions on the board, on Sticky-Quips or otherwise. They give him shit about how he destroyed everyone's creativity, until an IM chirps and everyone laughs. Phyllis is the only one who can't get her window closed in time, and Gabe physically pulls her away from her computer to hit the print button. He'd better hope the Sabre printer doesn't crash. Hey, this is easy! But at least someone's using the Sticky-Quips; they're on Gabe's back, advertising him as, among other things, a "Doosh." Aw, Kevin.
Michael has wandered into the part of town with the hobos and what not, and disappears down an alley. Literally, he disappears; by the time the camera follows him around the corner, he's gone. Like that camera guy is good for anything anyway.
Gabe is reading off a few of the captions out loud, and complaining about them. Phyllis invites Gabe to try, but Oscar dismisses Gabe's entry "You don't have to sniff my rear wend any more, Bob, I'm the only one here") as tasteless. Gabe says it's no more tasteless than "Is that a palm tree, or did Gabe get skinnier? Either way, let's pee on it." That gets the biggest laugh of all, but no one steps forward to claim the winner. Except in a TH, when we find out it was Angela. Who else? "It was easy once I decided I wanted the dog to piss on Gabe."
