Jim, Pam, you guys are in, right? Oh, we wanted to, But our sitter just fell through.
I'm really sorry.
Dwight? Uh, no, thank you.
Last time I went to the theater, A man dressed as a cat sat on my lap.
It would mean so much to me If you came to my show tonight.
I can't, Andy.
It's too hard.
That's I put everything I had into that audition.
Do you understand that? If it makes you feel any better, No one who auditioned for the part of sweeney Todd Got that part.
They had to bring in a ringer.
This guy's, like, world class.
You should not feel bad.
I'm asking you thespian to thespian.
Will you please be the bigger man And come to my show? I wish I could, Andy, But I can't.
I have plans that night.
I'm going to see a friend in a play called sweeney Todd.
You're that friend.
I'm going to see your play.
Noishe! And scene.
Listen, I would like you to take me to Andy's play tonight.
Please, waste of time.
You know what? Let's just knock this out right now.
Angela? Don't like her anymore.
Not attracted to her anymore.
Just contractually obligated to make a baby with her.
Give me the punch card.
If you want to punch the punch card, You have to take me to the show.
That is not in the contract.
Well, there's a lot of gray area in that clause.
Do you want to re-mediate? All right, fine! I'll go to your little show, But I'm not wearing a cape.
Thank you.
Dwight and I have a contractual agreement To procreate five times, plain and simple.
And should he develop feelings for me? Well, that would be permissible Under item 7c, clause 2, so I would not object.
How are those salads? It's my own fault My parents used to scramble to find babysitters So they could take my little brother to do stuff.
I understand how hard it can be.
I just tonight, I mean, if you could We'll keep looking.
- Yes! - Really? I mean, who knows? Maybe I have a niece my family never told me about.
Oh, my gosh, that would be amazing.
- Yeah.
- For a lot of reasons.
Yeah, I know.
Neiche! Oh, hey, guys.
You brought balloons to a play? I did, because I am being the bigger man, And balloons are bigger than flowers.
It's nice, like up.
Excuse me.
Are you the guy that did an entire law & order episode For his audition? Nope.
- Guys? - Hey! - Andy! - Hey! You all made it.
Thank you so much.
You should actually thank Erin.
She's the one who agreed to babysit.
She's babysitting? I really wanted to see Andy's play, Because he's so, so talented, But I've been trying to get in the babysitting game forever.
The 13-year-olds in this town Have a complete monopoly.
It's almost like a babysitters' club.
I understand.
This is like Huge opportunity for her.
This is ridiculous.
You'd think they'd discourage people From bringing in balloons.
Hey, I think this guy playing sweeney Todd is my plumber.
No, Darryl.
This guy's a world-class actor.
He doesn't daylight as your plumber.
No, it's my plumber.
Says so in his bio.
Apparently, the director discovered him doing karaoke.
It's his first play.
He didn't even audition.
Are you kidding me? If we don't listen to the overture, We won't recognize the musical themes When they come back later.

- Unfortunately, in this ham-fisted production Of sweeney Todd, The real terror comes from the vocal performances.
New paragraph.
Todd! Mr.
Todd! I found her! You found johanna.
That monster of a judge Has locked her Locked her away There's a little bird uttering around.
Do hope it ceases chirping.
How is that funny? The bird continues to call.
Someone please turn off yourBird.
Oh, for the love turn your phone off! There are signs! Oh, it appears the bird was in mine own pocket This whole time.
He's gone to sleep now.
I closed his beak.
Mmm[laughing alone.]
What is the news of my darling daughter johanna? You know what? Let me just double check, Make sure that bird Okay, good.
It's off.
I mean, silenced.
I silenced it by killing it.
I've killed it! I'm a murderer! Just like you, sweeney Todd! See? It all connects.
Not that I know you're a murderer.
My character doesn't know that yet.
But I'm suspicious, Because of all the razors That you have laying around.
And you spend time alone, But you're a barber, so that'legit.
So there's that.
But Where is johanna? - A madhouse.
- A madhouse? - Yes, a madhouse.
- A madhouse? Johanna is as good as rescued.
Where do you suppose All the wig makers of london Go to obtain their human hair? Do you think So you think So you think fogg's asylum, why not? Sounds like cece.
Okay, I think everybody just needs to relax.
Oh, my God, go, go.
Oh, my God.
That's really irresponsible of Erin.
S a ible bysitter.
I just didn't think you guys were gonna see us.
We were just gonna stop by and then get some ice cream And then go home.
Okay, this was pretty simple.
Why are you here? All you had to do was play with her For, like, 30 minutes and then put her to bed.
Then we were kind of hoping That you wouldn't touch her again.
Babies shouldn't have ice cream, by the way.
I'm sorry.
I just I really wanted to see Andy.
You guys made it sound so unmissable, And you set me up with a car seat and everything.
Well, the car seat was to take her to the hospital or But why would I take her to the hospital? You know what, it doesn't matter.
It doesn't matter.
Why don't I just take her home, And let you guys finish, And then you should stay out as late as you want.
No, we're good.
Thank you, though.
- Yeah.
- Thanks.
All right, bye, cece.
- Okay.
- All right.
Well, we're never leaving the house again.
Not together.
That was more horrifying than nunsense.
All that singing got in the way Of some perfectly good murders.
Where's my car? Come on.
Mmm! Fruit is so much better when it's dried.
I've already eaten, like, 30 apricots.
- Darryl? - Hey! Didn't know you were gonna be here.
How's the toilet? Silent.
Look, congratulations.
Thank you.
I had no idea.
This plumber has pipes.
Yeah, good job.
Well done.
You're the guy who booed me.
No, there were a lot of people booing you.
I wasn't one of them.
No, I saw you, And you were the only one.
Get your eyes checked, chucklehead.
Be cool, Michael.
I saw this guy kill a bunch of people.
Good work.
Thank you.
You didn't have to boo him.
Well, he was getting a lot of applause, And I just didn't think it was indicative Of how people were really feeling.
How would you like it if we booed you? That would never happen.
- Okay.
- Boo! I appreciate the feedback.
I don't like that at all.
Are you ready? Yes.
Oh, I'm so scared! Okay, kill me! Just kill me! Kill me! Ah, blood everywhere.
I'm so glad we're hanging out again outside of work.
Yeah, me, too.
Okay, I kill you now.
- Okay.
- All right.
All right, let's do this.
No, actually, Dwight, I didn't realize how far this walk was, And I I'm exhausted.
It's okay, I smell.
No, no, no.
I think I just want to go home, But it's okay.
This can count as one of your times.
No, no, no.
Contractually, we're obligated to have sex.
Well, I won't tell if you don't.
I will tell.
I will tell the mediator.
What what are you Oh, okay.
Oh, was that in the way? Get rid of it.
Good night, Dwight.
Good night.
These would have been your seats.
Best seats in the house.
Lot of people think it would be the front row, But, actually, right here, This is where the speakers converge And the sound just, like, nails you right here.
This is awesome.
Hi, Gabe.
Yeah, I just stopped by Andy's cast party To say hi to everyone.
Oh, sure, I can pick you up some soup.
What do you want? That's broth, Gabe.
Okay, I I'll see you soup.

Hey, what's going on here? Post-show blues? Yeah, I guess you could say that.
Yeah, I get those every day after work.
Your show was really great, Andy.
Interesting subject matter.
I'm surprised you pulled it off.
It was like amateur hour.
It was an amateur production, technically.
Oscar, enough with the sass, please! God! What is wrong with you? Andy, listen to me.
Look me in the eye.
I thought that you were awesome.
Stop just saying that.
I am not just saying that.
You can trust that I am telling you the truth.
I booed someone tonight.
I have no filter.
And if I thought you were terrible, I would have booed.
And if I thought you had done a better job, I would be saying nicer things right now.
But I thought that you were exactly awesome.
No better, no worse.
Thank you.
That feels good.
I did not say that to make you feel good.
I just said it.
Total integrity.
Andy, sing us another song.
Thanks, but I feel like a loner right now.
Oh, come on, Andy.
You were the highlight.
Come on, Andy, seriously.
Andy! Andy! Andy! Andy! Andy! Okay, all right, all right, all right.
