'The Office' recap: What's In Store
Meanwhile, in Scranton, Andy explains that his new shiner is the result of his protecting Pam from a gang of two-wheeled ruffians in the parking lot, leaving out the fact that the biker who hit him was a fifth-grader on a Schwinn. In order to keep the employees from calling the cops, which would unravel his whole cover story, Andy asks Toby to teach everyone self-defense. It's going fine, at least by Dunder-Mifflin standards, until the mother of Andy's assailant drags her into the office to apologize. Everyone mocks Andy for getting beat up by a girl, which somehow leads to Kelly hijacking the self-defense training by attacking Toby. When Andy steps in, he gets another black eye, but avoids further mocking by pointing out that he got these injuries standing up for others. So he ends up preserving his dignity after all, at least up until he downs all the wine and painkillers.
And Dwight gets made vice president after all. God help us.
