Oscar tells a doubtful Jim about his Key West timeshare as Ryan passes by. Ryan THs about his doubts that Jim is going anywhere at all, smugly going down the list of ways in which Jim is a creature of habit. He allows for the possibility that Jim may break loose and venture as far as Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Jim spins a globe and picks a spot at random. Sure, Cameroon is lovely this time of year, but why not rent a cherry-picker and visit Ryan at his home in Above It All?
As Dwight continues into a call to arms for all salesmen, Michael heads to the hotel bar. And Creed changes the office thermostat, wrapping up that non-plot. Dwight gets the whole audience to respond, "It is together that we prevail!" and they cheer and whistle as Dwight waves his award certificate in the air triumphantly. Well, I guess Jim showed him.
Back in the office, Jim has just told Pam that he's going to Australia. "I'm a little nervous to run into Dwight on his connecting flight to Mordor," Jim admits, but he's committed. And speaking of commitments, he's leaving June 8. Pam's wedding, you'll recall, is June 10th. She tries not to seem hurt, and sucks at it. Jim tries to explain, and sucks at that too. As a conciliatory gesture, he offers to take the completed stack of STD cards out for her, but she declines. If he couldn't save the date himself, how can she trust him to ask a hundred-odd other people to do the same?
Dwight gladhands the sales crowd on the way to the bar, finally finding Michael pouting there, well into his second or third drink. Dwight asks what happened. "I got thirsty," Michael says. Plus he had to get started right away on revising his memories of his recent flop so that ten years from now he'll recall it as his third triumph in this venue. "How'd it go?" he asks Dwight with magnificent disinterest. Dwight excitedly says it was great, and wishes Michael had been there. Michael tells Dwight some boring story about a woman at the bar who tried to order a drink earlier, got carded, and left. Dwight thinks this is riveting. And that's how Michael rescues his self-esteem. "I captivated a guy who captivated a thousand guys," he THs. "Can you believe that? A thousand guys." However does Michael do it?
