Business takes a turn for the weird when Michael finds a toxic package waiting for him at the office. In an effort to escape the stench, he commandeers Jim’s desk where he spends the rest of the day making false promises and inciting general mayhem. Meanwhile, Jim sets up shop at the back of the office and barely makes it through the day. Just when it seems like all hope is lost, inspiration arrives from a familiar source.

It is a well known fact that there are certain things that should never be placed at the foot of your bed: nails, poisonous snakes, and George Foreman Grills. Michael learns this lesson the hard way. Dwight speeds to his rescue, but not before running his car into an electrical pole and developing a brand new personality. Pam enjoys the company of her altered officemate, but the friendship is short-lived: a midday crisis rattles the office and leads to a visit to the hospital where we learn of Michael’s true intentions.

While onboard, Michael says several things he regrets, Jim regrets not saying enough, and Meredith mistakes a life preserver for an appropriate piece of clothing.
