Recap / The Office USS 8 E 9 Mrs California

Go To

Robert California’s wife Susan comes to the office looking for a job and he tells Andy not to hire her under any circumstance. But when she arrives and he says there’s nothing available, Robert insists he find something, putting Andy in an awkward position.


Tropes:

  • Cutting Corners: Dwight's first attempt at a gym is a small room in the office building with no real workout equipment, just some homemade replacements. Darryl convinces him to stop being cheap and actually buy some equipment.

  • Master of the Mixed Message: Robert forbids Andy to hire Susan but insists there must be something available whenever she’s in the room. This confusion leads to Susan getting hired, but then the office is immediately forced to try to get her to quit.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Jim gets thrown under the bus by Andy about telling the truth to Susan, so he runs off to hide from Robert.
