The episode opens with an aerial shot of Mr. Scott, basking in the dreary views of downtown Scranton while sitting in a deck chair on the top of the office building. Oh, and he’s wearing his cowboy boots.
As he sat there, Scott explained that he was at the top of the building to “get used to the heights” before starting his new life in Boulder, Colorado (though at this point, he’s not. doesn’t remember his new home The town is Boulder, in his opinion.) Scott’s association of a short office building with the towering heights of the Rockies is a perfect callback to endearing ignorance. of character.
Of course, the scene doesn’t stop there. A disgruntled Dwight appeared shortly after with a plate full of bull testicles disguised as Rocky Mountain oysters. After tricking Michael into eating a portion, two colleagues prepared to eat a portion. But Michael sets a surprising tone (that he follows through for the entire episode) by smoothing everything out. He started by explaining why he didn’t recommend Dwight for a management position. He then deftly manages the farmer, tapping into his wildlife knowledge by asking him questions about bears, salamanders, pepperonis, and the like.
The whole scene is filled with a classic look Michael-Dwight’s Moments. But it’s also important, as it really sets the tone for the nostalgia overload that’s about to follow.
