This week we meet Danny Cordray, the single best salesman in all the land, whom the staff finds intimidating thanks to his looks, skills, and the fact that he once dated Pam. When he steals the big Frames Select account, even after Michael personally attends to the Dwight-Jim team sales call, Michael, Jim, and Dwight decide to pull a sting(er). They have Meredith pretend to be a CEO in the fake Pennsylvania Solar Tech and get Danny to try to sell her some paper.
Of course, Meredith being Meredith things go wrong and take a Mad Men turn.
Michael ends up offering Danny a job with Dunder Mifflin, which Danny reluctantly accepts. But will the rest of staff (other than Meredith, Kelly, Pam, and even...Angela) ever accept him?
With all of these honeytraps and flirtations, Dunder Mifflin Scranton didn't get much work done this week. They did, however, get to practice their favorite hobbies:
Cycling: Oscar, ever the emerging hipster, cycles to work everyday. Michael cycles too...three times a month at spin class. And with those two extra wheels on the back to provide stability.
Sports: Jim gets excited because the chief buyer for Frames Select is named Steve Nash, the NBA player. Dwight instantly derides him as "Mr. Jock Hipster."
