This episode opens with Michael, Pam, and Ryan, the only members of the newly-formed Michael Scott Paper Company. Bored of cold-calling potential clients in their tiny new office, they start throwing cheese puffs across the room into each others' mouths. In the Dunder Mifflin office, Andy tries 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.) Andy presents Jim with a tape of his college a capella group singing You Can Call Me Al as a possible processional for their wedding, and quotes him $9,000 for a live performance. Jim pretends to be apprehensive about his future with Pam to play a prank on Andy.
Dwight attempts to sabotage the Michael Scott Paper Company by throwing a fish into their air vent and stealing Michael's rolodex, but it backfires--Michael's rolodex cards are color-coded so he'll remember what not to say, and Dwight says completely inappropriate things to each client: "how is Tom, the homosexual sophomore?"

- Andy's singing group begins with Pachelbel's Canon then transitions to You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon.
Jim: -I just don't know if I can do it.
Andy: That's interesting, because I hear what you're saying is that you want to do it, which means you can do it. Believe me, I broke up with Angela, and I'm like, the happiest guy ever. I mean, I'm so happy. I'm so happy. Like, total freedom, you know?
Jim: It's just that Pam gets me through the day, you know? I really rely on her. I'm pretty emotionally needy.
Andy: And you know what? I am here for you. Let me be your traveling pants.
Dwight: When Michael was in charge, this place was like the Roman Empire. And the Wild West. And war-torn Poland. And Poland. There was just a lot going on, so what you wore to work was the least of anybody's worries. And in that chaos, I soared.
'Michael: It was a setup. Dwight told Charles. He told him.
Pam: Tell us what you're talking about.
Michael: It's like, a girl says she'll make out with you, but then her boyfriend is waiting around the corner with a pee-filled balloon.
Pam: We can't help you if you don't just tell us what happened.
Michael: I got hit in the face with a pee-filled water balloon, Pam, ok? I don't know how they did it. They filled the balloon with pee. A funnel? I don't know. Is that clear enough for you?
