SynopsisEdit

Chief Executive Officer David Wallace talks to the camera crew about him informing Andy that he was on real thin ice after Andy was lying to him saying that he was in Dunder Mifflin, but was really on his boat for three months. but after learning that Andy was gone for a week, he informs the camera crew that "the ice gets thinner and thinner and you fall into the water, which means he's fired". Although, Andy attempts to get enough strength to quit his job and pursue his dream as an actor and talks to David about it in his office before he even had the chance to fire Andy. He changes his mind twice about it, but eventually he makes up his mind and leaves the office. As a goodbye, Andy serenades the rest of the office employees, who initially dismissed Andy's dream as a giant mistake, with a beautiful and moving rendition of Sarah McLachlan's song "I Will Remember You".

Meanwhile, Dwight receives his black belt in karate from his new sensei. Seeing Dwight's tenacity and devotion, David is inspired to promote Dwight to the regional manager. Jim returns to Scranton and spends time with Pam. Dwight then appoints Jim the new assistant to the regional manager. Darryl informs Jim that Athlead has found a buyer and they are set to travel around the country for three months. Jim tells Darryl he cannot leave Pam for an extended period of time. Pam is seen overhearing their conversation in the bathroom.

Angela is evicted from her studio apartment after cats have been taken away from her by Animal Control, and that she is considering living in a tent in the woods, prompting Oscar to offer her a chance to stay with him. And in the end of the episode, Angela breaks down into tears informing Oscar that she still loves Dwight.
