If I'm dead, you've been dead for a week.

The Office – Night Out
Michael & Dwight take a trip to New York to mingle with bigwig Ryan and his colleagues at the nightclubs. Back in Scranton, the staffers work on Ryan’s pet website project – on a Saturday.

As we open, Michael comes into the office with gum in his hair, so Dwight covers his head in peanut butter to get it out. A manic Ryan arrives to make the Scranton branch work on Saturday. Ryan has tried to created the new Dunder Mifflin website to function partly as a social networking site, and it has been invaded by sexual predators. He wants to input their phone sales into the website to cover up his failures.

Still desperate to find a girlfriend, Michael goes to New York with Dwight to visit Ryan. They go to a club, where cokehead Ryan becomes increasingly addled and Michael is shot down time and again. The men go to a second club, but can’t get in without girls. There happens to be a college basketball team in line near them, so Dwight commandeers them, then makes out with one of them. What?!? In the end, they return to Ryan’s apartment where he kind of admits that he has a drug problem. Michael, for his part, is just thrilled to have had a boy’s night out.

Meanwhile, back at the office, Jim decides they should all work late Friday instead of coming in on Saturday. However, he forgets to tell the security guard, who locks the gate to the parking lot, trapping them. And, Pam has locked the office on their way out, so they get can’t back in. Toby, being surprisingly inappropriate, hits on Pam. He realizes his mistake, proclaims that he’s moving to Costa Rica, and runs off. Noooo!
