Training Day - The Office (Season 7, Episode 20)
Michael is waiting in a hotel bar for his replacement Deangelo Vickers to show up. While waiting, he meets a man at the bar and the two instantly hit it off. When Michael calls Vickers to see where he is, it is revealed that the man Michael has
been talking to is actually Deangelo, though it takes the two some time to actually realize this.
Deangelo comes to the branch the next day, and most of the staff is eager to make a good first impression. Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner) wears his toupee, Jim and Pam believe they have started off well by mentioning their baby, and
Deangelo designates Andy as the office "funny guy" when he reveals that he carries name tags around to avoid situations like the one Deangelo and Michael were in. Dwight is not pleased that he was not selected to replace Michael,
believing that Michael put in a good recommendation for him. Though Deangelo's introduction goes smoothly, Michael becomes disturbed when Deangelo wants to make some changes, such as how Erin answers the phone.
While Deangelo gets annoyed with Jim and Pam, he loves the antics of Andy, who has resorted to physical comedy when his jokes fall flat, getting to the point where he pours hot coffee on his pants and (at Deangelo's urging) eats
soap; Andy tells the camera with dazed sadness that "this is my life now". Deangelo's popularity with the employees causes Michael to get jealous to the point where he passes out peanut butter sandwiches, despite Deangelo's
peanut allergy. Deangelo then assembles the staff in the "multipurpose room", including Dwight, who learned from Gabe that Michael did not put in a recommendation and thus snubs Michael.
Jim quietly tells Michael that he
chose to resign his job and needs to come to terms with both that choice and the fact that life is going to go on at the office. Deangelo then steps out of his meeting and asks Michael for advice for how to run the meeting,
saying that he is a good manager and Dunder Mifflin will not be the same without him. The two make up with a reverse hug, Deangelo telling him that he should start enjoying his retirement. Michael returns to his office
while Deangelo conducts his meeting in the conference room.
In another effort to impress Deangelo, Jim and Pam bring in Cece, to which Deangelo reacts positively. While they celebrate getting back on his good side, Deangelo reveals to the camera that he is in fact indifferent to
Cece and was just being polite.

We were… I think she was just trying to-
No, no, no, I know what you’re doing. Just quit it. I want to hear from the rank and file. How can I be the best manager for you all? What can I do better?
You know what, everybody? You have to be honest, here. You can’t say that everything is perfect. So, you know, come up with something.
Well, Deangelo, I’d say communication could be improved. People stopped reading memos, so everyone marks them urgent.
Ok, you know what, I mark it urgent A, urgent B, urgent C, urgent D. Urgent A is the most important, urgent D you don’t even really have to worry about.

I still have to look at this stuff, guys.
So this is a ten-gallon hat, huh?
Yep, ten-gallon hat. Technically, it only holds about three quartz. Little factoid.

Michael, this is serious! Do you know what happens if Deangelo touches a peanut?
Michael, the last time I was exposed to a peanut, I was itchy for three days, ok? I had to take baths constantly. I missed the O.J. verdict. I had to read about it in the paper like an idiot.

You’ll figure it out.
Hey, Deangelo! Wanna meet Cece?
That’s a cute baby. Very cute baby. Adorable. Very cute.
