Storyline

An office power play ensues when ultra-serious Angela, offended by Michael's various antics and his inefficient leadership, leans heavily on Dwight to make a push for Michael's job. Meanwhile, Pam puts on a lunchtime fashion show; and Jim's attempts to play a video game turn deadly---in a virtual sense. Written by Brock A. Zimmerman
