During the introduction at Chili's (the big meeting) Michael learns Jan is divorced and is intrigued by what happened openly embarrassing Jan.

Here's how the meeting goes:

Jan and Christian begin discussing the needs of the county and Michael begins discussing the Awesome Bloosom.

After the joke, Jan orders a vodka tonic

The next thing we see is Michael and Christian laughing over Michael's mouth tie. Everybody is drinking margaritas and Jan can no longer get the meeting under control.

Back at the office, while Pam is putting away the joke books, she finds a movie screenplay that Michael has written. She immediately gives it to Jim and the Dunder-Mifflin employees begin to act out the movie around the conference table.
