Blood Drive - The Office (Season 5, Episode 18)
Michael is depressed - it's the first Valentine's Day since he and Holly broke up. There's a mobile blood drive at the office and Michael donates blood. While donating blood, Michael has a nice conversation with a female donor laying next to him.
They both finish at around the same time, but Michael passes out because he hasn't eaten for three days - he's been nervous about giving blood. By the time he wakes up, she is gone except for a glove he assumes she left behind. He takes it, hoping she will come back for it.
Michael goes back into the office and gathers all the single employees in the conference room to discuss their own personal romantic dilemmas. Further depressed by their sad dating stories, Michael believes holding a singles mixer will lift lift their spirits. He puts up
flyers which also advertise the finding of a missing glove, hoping his mystery woman will come to the party as a result.
Michael threatens Jim and with banishment because they constantly gaze happily on each other. Phyllis invites them to have lunch with her and Bob Vance, her husband. The meal goes well, but Phyllis and Bob disappear for a while after their food arrives.
Jim and Pam check the bathrooms and hear Phyllis and Bob having sex in the disabled bathroom. Phyllis and Bob finally come back to their table and Jim and Pam lose their appetites and look on in disgust as Phyllis and Bob seductively put food in each other's mouths.
A few outsiders show up at the singles mixer. One of the attendees strikes up a conversation with Dwight, who tries to sell her paper; Dwight becomes angry when she tells him she already has a paper supplier. Another attendee named Lynn talks with Kevin. He's still depressed over his breakup with his Stacy and walks away in shame when he admits it was she who broke it off.
Kevin returns later to apologize to Lynn and admits he gets nervous talking to pretty girls; Lynn is flattered and gives Kevin her e-mail address. The woman who lost her glove never does show up and Michael tells the employees they can go home early but they decide to stay and encourage Michael to leave with them when she doesn't arrive.

Thank you, Michael.
I can untie any knot. I’m serious. Name a knot, any knot. Go ahead.
You shouldn’t believe everything you hear. In fact, there are many knots that I cannot untie. So where does a woman as charming as yourself find herself employed on a day such as today.
Um, I work at a place that does catalogs for community colleges and small businesses.
You must use a lot of paper.
Oh God tons of it .
What’s the rule about eating when people are in the bathroom?
I think if you ordered hot food you’re allowed to eat.

Look at that. Bob ordered hot food.
Yes. And I think they gave him too many fries.
We should help him out. Jim and Pam each take a French fry, eat it, and then look toward the bathroom

It’s going very well. People are mixing, a lot of hope. Cause that’s what you hate to see, when hope gets crushed. Michael suddenly turns to look at the open entrance door Sorry, thought I heard somebody coming in. Um, so looking at his watch it’s not too late.
…and the kind of discounts we’re talking about are not… hold on – Michael, Why do you keep looking at the front door?
Is somebody after you?
Why do you always go to that? Has anyone ever been after anyone in this office?
Hey, it just takes one!
Nobody’s after me, I just, I met a woman when I was giving blood and I thought she might come by.
You met a woman when you were giving blood? That is so romantic.
It’s not a big deal really, I just, you know met somebody, we hardly talked, I picked up her glove so I was hoping I could give it back to her.
Oh my God, that makes it even more romantic. This is like a modern day Enchanted, it’s like a fairy tale.
She could be your soul mate.
Oh, not likely. 3 billion woman on the planet, most of them live in Asia so the numbers just don’t add up.
She could be.
Believe me its nothing. I hardly even talked to her we just, we were lying there next to each other, I think our blood bags touched.
Aww. Michael grins sheepishly
Here they come.

Four months ago, I dated a woman named Holly and, um, this is actually the first time that I’ve even considered getting back into that arena again. You know what, sometimes it’s not about whether Cinderella gets her slipper back, but it’s about the fact that the prince even picked up the slipper at all. There’s a lot of princesses out there. You know, they have all different sizes and shapes of feet and hands so I think, I think my odds are pretty good.
Pardon me, may I have a chocolate chip cookie? I gave blood earlier and I’m still feeling woozy.
