Out of their casual clothes and back to work, the Scranton branch is ready to endure the ways of Michael Scott once again. But as always, Michael insists all his workers loosen up. He is also still trying to prove that he is cooler than Charles, which makes for an interesting episode. It all begins when Michael realizes that no one is playing around of taking two hour lunches anymore. ::gasp:: Therefore, he decides to spice things up a bit by purchasing an espresso machine!
It doesn't stop there though. Michael decides to place this espresso machine in the former home of the former Michael Scott Paper Company, along with a boom box. Apparently these are the ingredients to a Scranton branch break room. He advertises it as a place where the team members can do a little dance, make a little love, get down tonight. Oops sorry, song outbreak.
Michael just wants to set it up as a place for them to hang out and eat some good finger foods. However, everyone is not up for this dance party, even though Michael believes he has "figured out what is up [their] butts."
Kevin finally decides to go downstairs to the Café Disco, not to dance though. ::sad face:: But to use the espresso machine. As many of you have seen how messy Kevin can get, especially with bringing chili into the office, it is no surprise that he made a mess out of the espresso machine. He eventually returns back upstairs when Angela nags him back to work.
Michael still has big hopes for his Café Disco, so he decides to crank up some music and put the boom box near the air vent. Now everyone in the office can hear "Everybody Dance Now" playing loud and clear in the café.
Of course, leave it to the sweet and sensual sounds of C+C Music Factory to get people excited. Phyllis is the first to head downstairs. She makes a quick stop at her husband Bob Vance's office, to see if he wants to get down and dirty with her. But his secretary, someone who looks a lot like Phyllis but with more 'baggage', does not let her in. Perplexed, Phyllis automatically assumes that Bob is cheating on her with the Twilight Zone version of Phyllis. To get rid of her anxieties, she dances with Michael, only to get injured and throw her back out.
It gets even worse for Phyllis when Dwight strips down to his undershirt and gives Phyllis a massage in the conference room. Yes, this is a true story. Not sure how much Phyllis was enjoying it, but she ends up revealing that she thinks Bob is having an affair with his secretary.
Meanwhile, Kelly and Erin, the new receptionist, head downstairs to see what the Café Disco is like. The warehouse guys find out there are a few ladies dancing the day away, and that is how the party really starts.
And by party, I mean competitive dancing. Andy reads Kelly's flirtatious moves as a challenge to a dance off. If an award was available for how well someone can dance with a chair, I am sure Andy would win. But wait, Kelly takes up this challenge and grabs the chair to pull a "Flashdance" scene. BAM.
Think the dancing's done? Not until Kevin busts-a-move. He gets his freak on with the woman that he's been seeing earlier this season. About time Kevin my boy!
Michael feels his day is complete because Café Disco is a success. Jim and Pam also feel it has completed their day. They were planning on sneaking out of the office to get married! Yes, an unplanned surprise wedding. Luckily, the Café Disco reminded them how much they want a cheesy wedding, with the mixing of the YMCA dance and dino shaped chicken nuggets.
Eventually, Bob comes downstairs to dance with Phyllis. She is all rested up from Dwight's tantric massage, but is still skeptical about Bob's secretary. Luckily, she is not there so she enjoys her time with Bob. I guess we'll see what happens...
At long last, it is Stanley who has benefited the most from Café Disco. Since everyone was gone, he was able to take a nice long nap in the office. I'm sure he was dreaming of dancing. Well, at least I dream of Stanley dancing.
