Beth and Joe tell Dave to talk Andrea into getting Matthew back. Dave agrees with them, but has bigger fish to fry when Andrea introduces Steve Johnson, the man she brought over 'to help' Dave but is actually hired to take over from Dave. On top of this, Dave is also being bugged by Bill who, at the office, has started a musical act where he sings satirical songs about politicians while accompanying himself on piano. Meanwhile, Mr. James lets a camera crew film around the office for a documentary about him. Unfortunately, Mr. James starts acting rather weird when the camera rolls.
