Viewing Party - The Office (Season 7, Episode 8)
Michael becomes frustrated when Kevin refers to Gabe as his boss. Erin and Gabe invite the office to Gabe's house for a Glee viewing party. Dwight and Angela plan to have sex during the party for fulfillment of their contract. When the show starts, Michael and
Gabe get into an argument over how high the volume should be. After taking turns raising and lowering the volume, Michael retreats to Gabe's bedroom, hoping that his employees will follow him there. Meanwhile, Pam has been having a hard time with
getting her daughter Cece to go to sleep at night, so Dwight picks her up to try to calm her down. Pam is stunned that Cece becomes completely quiet in Dwight's hands. Dwight explains that Schrutes are raised by the youngest children, so he
has "been raising children since [he] was a baby."
Jim changes the channel from the Glee episode so he can check sports scores. Oscar asks Jim to change the channel back to Glee, but discovers that Erin had neglected to record the episode. To avoid his co-workers' anger, Jim goes into the bedroom
to see Dwight holding a sleeping Cece. Angela comes in and demands that Dwight meet her outside for sex. Determined to put an end to Cece's "reverse cycling", Pam persuades Dwight to stay with the baby under the condition that Jim feeds
Dwight pizza and beer while Pam goes outside to tell Angela that Dwight cannot see her.
Andy is growing increasingly jealous of Gabe's relationship with Erin. While observing Gabe's room, Ryan tells him that a Chinese virility supplement that Gabe keeps in his room is incredibly potent. Once alone, Andy drinks the entire bottle
of the supplement, which makes him intoxicated, prompting him to admit his jealousy to Phyllis. Phyllis volunteers to talk to Erin and find out if she is having sex with Gabe, but as Phyllis is fairly intoxicated herself, her inquiries segue
into an explicit account of her sexual experiences with her husband Bob, which mortifies Erin. Andy's intoxication turns into sickness, and he ultimately retreats to Gabe's room and vomits on the bed. He is later comforted by Gabe,
who plays his self-composed soundscapes for Andy.
Becoming irritated that no one joined him in walking out on Gabe, Michael goes outside and pulls the cable connection, causing it to turn off, just as the show inside was nearing its end. Hysteria erupts, and Michael becomes self-conscious over
the commotion he has caused. He goes outside to fix the cable. There he is discovered by Erin, who throughout the evening has been trying to encourage Michael to bond with Gabe. Michael, still indignant over the idea that his office views
Gabe as his boss, is initially irritated by her efforts, but eventually realizes that Erin views him as a father figure. He jokes around and tells her to go to her room, leading to a bonding moment between the two. As he leaves the
party, Michael brings Gabe into the joke by threatening to kill him and his family if he breaks Erin's heart.
