Andy invites the office to see him perform in a production of Sweeney Todd but is upset when Erin volunteers to babysit for Jim and Pam so they can make it. Meanwhile Michael, who also auditioned, grapples with his jealousy over not getting a part.
- Brutal Honesty: A rare positive example. Michael assures Andy that he was awesome in the play, and that he can trust his opinion as unbiased since he has no filter and booed the lead actor.
- Shout-Out: Michael apparently did an entire episode of Law & Order for his audition. The closing scene of the episode is a cutaway of him starting it.
