Happy Hour - The Office (Season 6, Episode 21)
In the cold open, Michael does push-ups, and agrees to let anyone who beats his record of "25 and one girl push up" go home early. Most of the office fail, but Stanley becomes the only person to succeed, Oscar likens it to "one of those
stories where a mother lifts a car to save her baby." Though Michael is annoyed at first, he eventually starts cheering for Stanley and applauds with the rest of the office when Stanley leaves for home.
Wanting to spend more time with the new warehouse worker Matt, Oscar asks Darryl to organize a happy hour outing between the office employees and the warehouse workers. Jim invites Pam, who is unusually excited to see everyone. They
invite a friend of hers, Julie, to meet Michael. Julie seems to take a liking to Michael as she laughs at everything he says, but when Michael learns they invited Julie specifically for him, he adopts a new persona called "Date Mike"
that he says is inspired by the winners and losers of reality TV dating shows and starts acting erratic and unpredictable. He causes a scene to the point where the manager, Donna (Amy Pietz), threatens to throw him out. Michael
initially stands down, but then decides to confront Donna about what happened. The two end up hitting it off and she offers him a free lunch at the bar. Julie notices this and leaves.
Andy and Erin do their best to keep their relationship under wraps because of the drama it might bring if they go public, even though everyone seems to know already. They first try to keep their distance from each other. They then
attempt to flirt with other bar patrons, but when Erin takes the flirting too far, they end up having an argument in the photo booth. Realizing that hiding their relationship has caused too much drama, Andy publicly announces their
relationship on the PA system.
Dwight rethinks his pre-natal contract with Angela when Isabel arrives at the bar. Dwight and Isabel have fun playing Whac-A-Mole together while Angela tries to get in on the fun. Dwight thinks that Isabel would be better suited
to have his children, so he tells Angela he is canceling the contract, prompting Angela to get a summons to court. When she confronts Dwight about the contract in front of Isabel, Isabel "whacks" Angela on the head and scares
her off. Dwight gives Isabel a passionate kiss afterward.
On a couple of occasions, Kevin indulges his bad-taste humor by making baby-crying noises near Pam, hoping to embarrass her by making her nipples leak. It does not work, but later when Kelly comes past weeping, it suddenly does.
Oscar is upset that Matt didn't show up with the rest of them, prompting Darryl to tell Oscar that they have nothing in common, but when Matt finally shows up, Oscar gets excited and the two shoot hoops together. At the end of
the episode, Darryl asks the long-working yet newly featured Japanese warehouse worker, Hide, to recount his story about how he used to be a heart surgeon. Hide explains how he failed a heart operation on a Yakuza boss, prompting
him to flee to the United States, where Darryl gave him a job. After doing so, Hide then reveals that he failed that heart operation purposely, claiming that he is "good surgeon".

Then I am sorry that I didn’t kick you out.
I am here with my employees. I am here on a date. Hello.
Well, uh, I’m the manager here, sir.
Well, it just so happens that I am a manager too. And the way I manage people is that I touch their hearts and souls with humor, with love and maybe a dash of razzle-dazzle. And I don’t see that from you.
Is that how you do it?
Yes it is. I am writing a book about it.
Really? How much have you written?
I’ve written all of it… in my head.
If you’re really interested, it’s called ‘Somehow I Manage’ and there’s going to be a picture of me on the cover, shrugging, with my sleeves rolled up.
Huh. Have you read Lee Iacocca’s? It’s a classic.
Read it? I own it. But no, I have not read it.
