Synopsis


Michael is driving to New York with Jan where he is going to speak at her deposition. Jan is suing Dunder Mifflin for four million dollars over her wrongful termination. Michael is excited to testify and has memorized every answer Jan told him to.

The warehouse bought a ping-pong table and Jim has taken it upon himself to spend his lunches playing. Pam quickly realizes her boyfriend must be a 12-year-old boy. Pam also notices that Kelly is taking it a step too far by trash talking Pam because her boyfriend, Darryl is beating Jim.

Michael is getting flustered with all the questioning at Jan's deposition. Even answering "that's what she said" at one point. Just went when things look like they can't get worst, the infamous Sandals picture was presented as proof that Michael and Jan were involved before the original date Michael had stated.

Pam surprises Jim with a set-up ping-pong table in the conference room so he can get his practice in. She's more set on showing up Kelly when it came to whose boyfriend is better at ping-pong. Jim challenges Dwight to a match and is surprised to lose.

Michael's diary entries are presented into evidence for proof that Michael and Jan had thought that the fling in Jamaica was a one-time thing and not a relationship. Dunder Mifflin's attorneys wanted copies made of Michael's diary so they could examine it themselves. Michael can't believe Jan gave her attorneys his diary in the first place.

Dunder Mifflin presented Michael with a copy of his last performance review that Jan gave him. There, Jan makes it clear that Michael should not be a manager. When Michael questions Jan, she presents Michael with David Wallace's own transcription of his response when asked if Michael should have Jan's job. The transcription clearly says that David never thought of Michael as a candidate for the job.

Pam gets sick and tired of Kelly's trash talking and challenges her to a game of ping-pong. After it's made very clear that neither girl is good at the game, Jim and Darryl decide to play ping-pong upstairs in the conference room.

Despite hearing that David didn't think Michael was a good fit for Jan's job, Michael still sides with Dunder Mifflin. As Jan storms out in anger, Michael stops David and tells him he still thinks he's a good man, despite his feelings for Michael as Corporate material and David thanks him.
