Michael has joined Jim and Dwight in the lobby by the time Danny comes out of his sales call, and upon first sight of the guy, thinks he's a male model. But then he pops up and introduces himself. "Three of you guys for one sale," Danny remarks. "We call it overkill," Michael says. "Why am I telling you my strategy?" Danny takes off, and Michael tries to take over the sales call with his whole "Showtime!" bit. "Not doing that," Jim says. "I've been in showtime mode since breakfast," Dwight agrees. Michael lets it slide, but then Jim says, "Showtime!" anyway, just to be mean.
Inside Steve Nash's office, Michael is trying to wear him down by offering to deliver on weekends, and selling their paper at cost, to the shock of even Jim and Dwight. But the account is gone, to Danny.
"Jim talked too much," Dwight post-mortems in the hallway. Michael tells them not to bicker; they did what they were supposed to and just got beat. But he's in a fury about losing the sale, as he THs once he's safely back in his office. "It's like if Michael Phelps came out of retirement, jumped in the pool, belly-flopped, and drowned." Wait, did Michael Phelps retire? I'm not exactly a jock hipster.
Back in the office, Michael has assembled the sales staff for a meeting on how to keep Danny from eating their lunch. Stanley's barely participating, and although Michael's first attempt to kick Stanley out fails, he succeeds in evicting him with a digression about the diabetes he assumes Stanley has. Phyllis has an idea for dealing with Danny: "I could try to seduce him." Michael's loudly and vocally not up for that. Dwight gleefully raises a hand, volunteering, "I know how we can learn his tricks."
Dwight leads Jim, Michael, Stanley, and Phyllis into the office park's Batcave, which is actually just a tiny surveillance room with a monitor showing a live feed from four cameras in Dwight's landlord office. Dwight, why you got four cameras in your office? Never mind that; it's part of Dwight's plan, which consists of: "We lure Danny to it and watch him sell." This is too much for Stanley and Phyllis, even though they've lived more of their lives on camera than the entire cast of any given season of Big Brother combined. Michael's in, though, because he thinks this is like that Paul Newman/Robert Redford movie The Stinger. Jim and Dwight straighten him out on the title.
