Jim felt awkward at the morning meeting when his boss put him charge of managing Karen and her responsibilities. The other co-workers looked at Jim as a kiss ass. Later on, he flirted with Karen in the break room and told her she shouldn't work until she found her favorite snack chips.

Jan broke the news that Michael's old boss, Ed Truck died. Michael told the rest of the staff about Ed's passing. Creed broke the news that Ed was decapitated when he was drunk driving and crashed his car. Michael wanted Jan to erect a statue of Ed outside the building.

Michael thought it would be a good idea to hold a grief counseling session for the office. Roy interrupted the meeting to tell Pam that he noticed something wrong with her car. When she walked to the parking lot with Roy, he had confessed he was just saving her from another one of Michael's group sessions. When Pam returned, so did the session.

Michael thought it would be a great idea to have all the members of the office share stories of loss in their own lives. But, instead, the co-workers shared details of their favorite movies. Michael was fed up that they were taking his grief counseling so lightly.

Karen returned to her desk and found a bag of her favorite snack chips. She couldn't believe Jim had found a bag when they thought they had searched everywhere. Jim denied finding the chips. Jim confessed that he bought them from the vending machine from the building next door.

After discovering a dead bird was outside the office, Michael had decided to throw it a proper funeral. Pam made a bird coffin out of a shoebox and Michael was touched that she cared. Pam delivered the heartfelt eulogy and Dwight played the recorder.
