The cold open for this week involves Michael reminding us that Dunder Mifflin has been sold, and that big changes are on the way. Today, the first investment banker is coming in to sign off on the big sale, and because of this Michael is pretty nervous. His nervousness has led him to make some cosmetic changes around and outside the building. As the banker pulls in, he sees a bright red sports car parked next to him, under the sign: Employee of the Month, Michael Scott, Regional Manager.
The principles that I'm applying to the office are the same that have made Lady Gaga a star or any number of drag queens.
The banker comes in and is greeted by Computron, the office's virtual helper, just one of many devices that Michael has installed to help the office function better. Michael, by the way, rides out of his office on a segway to greet the banker, and Computron is clearly just Dwight on the other side of a speaker phone. Across from the office, Andy announces that they are now the official paper supplier of the NFL. Michael introduces Pam as the office's international salesperson, and she proceeds to greet the banker in various forms of hello. Pam has a segment where she explains to us that since everyone in New York has technically been let go, that makes Michael the highest ranking employee in Dunder Mifflin.

For the record, Pam is not on board with Fake Stanley. Although she gets it.
