"Heavy Competition" is the twenty-second episode of the fifth season of The Office. It was written by Ryan Koh and directed by Ken Whittingham. It first aired on April 16, 2009.


Michael, Pam, and Ryan, (the only members of the newly-formed Michael Scott Paper Company), are bored of cold-calling potential clients in their tiny new office, so they start throwing cheese puffs across the room into each others' mouths. 

Upstairs, Andy is trying to sell Jim all of his various wedding paraphernalia. (He has recently called off his wedding because he found out that Angela was cheating on him with Dwight.)  He presents Jim with a tape of his college a capella group singing You Can Call Me Al as a possible processional for their wedding.
