Chili's. Michael and Jan come in and meet up with Christian, the county rep, who's played by Tim Meadows. Michael introduces "Jan Levinson-Gould," which Jan corrects to "Jan Levinson." Everything freezes as Michael whisper-quizzes Jan about what happened and why her name changed. After rebuffing multiple attempts from him to narrow it down ("Is Gould dead?"), Jan tells Michael quickly and quietly that she's divorced. He asks her if she wants to "talk about it." Now. With the client. At Chili's. Desperate to keep moving for several reasons, Jan calls for a table.
Once they're all seated, Christian tells them that times are hard everywhere, and "the name of the game is budget reductions." Seemingly not paying attention, Michael tells Christian he thinks they should get an Awesome Blossom. Christian agrees to the Blossom that is Awesome. In fact, Michael orders it "extra-Awesome." Jan tries to get back to the discussion of the deal, but Michael wants to tell a joke. Christian agrees to listen, but Jan insists that he can only tell one. Restricted to one joke and not wanting to waste it, Michael calls Pam, who winds up in Michael's office reading him jokes from his joke book. He rejects a couple, then winds up accepting the old "I am a lighthouse" transcript. Later, as Pam puts away Michael's joke books (including the Big Book Of Business Jokes, which makes me feel like someone is walking over my sense of humor's grave), she finds something in the bottom of a drawer. She takes it out and stares in disbelief as she flips through the pages and laughs.
Pam drops the item she found on Jim's desk without a word. She leans against his desk, waiting for him to take it in. Jim looks down at it. "Is this real?" he asks hopefully. "It is a screenplay," Pam says evenly. "Starring himself." It turns out that this is a story of Agent Michael Scarn, of the FBI. As Jim leafs through it, he excitedly says, "Oh, Pam, good work!" Jim also finds some drawings (on Dunder Mifflin stationery) that seem to go with the screenplay, which bear titles like "Threat Level Midnight." Jim also finds a drawing of Michael Scarn himself. Oh, Michael.
