Angela and Kevin were trying to figure out where extra money in the budget came from. Jan let them know it was money Dunder-Mifflin received for hiring an ex-convict. Michael swore he never hired an ex-convict. Jan informed him that the person must have come from the merger.

Andy called Jim up to ask him about different girls at the office. Andy decided he was going to ask out Pam and asked Jim's advice on it. Jim told him to go for it! Jim decided to give Andy a list of pointers to win Pam over. Except he switched it up, giving Andy a list of Pam's dislikes, and labeling them as things she does like.

Michael found out the convict was Martin. He decided it was his duty to announce it the entire office. Martin cleared up his name by saying he went to prison for insider trading. Different employees had questions about what prison was like. Martin was making prison sound very appealing to his co-workers.

Michael was beginning to get irritated with Martin's comparisons of prison life and to life at Dunder-Mifflin. He introduced himself as "Prison Mike" and wanted to scare everybody straight. Instead, it was making the staff uncomfortable. Michael got made and locked them in the conference room.

After Toby freed everybody from the conference room, Martin decided to quit his job. Michael said he didn't work with quitters and was disappointed in Martin. Michael also revealed he was not going to miss Martin one bit.
