Andrea announces she wants to do some tests with the staff. Joe somehow gets hold of the test and discovers it's a lie detector test. Dave lets Beth arrange a lunch in a restaurant so he can tell the staff what Andrea has in reserve for them. In the restaurant, it turns out Matthew is now a waiter and Lisa has done time. Meanwhile, the Japanese translation of Mr. James' autobiography is a hit in Japan. Because the original English version bombed, Mr. James has the book translated from Japanese back into English, hoping it will be a hit this time. To bring attention to the book he does a book reading. Written by Marco van Hoof <>

In the first scene, Bill is pretending to be Matthew. He sits back in his chair and falls backward out of it. You can see his coffee mug on the table has tipped over and is clearly empty. Lisa sets it back upright. In the next scene Bill takes the coffee mug and leans back again. This time coffee from that previously empty mug spills all over him. See more »
