Michael gets excited when he's invited by CFO David Wallace to be honored on stage at the Dunder Mifflin shareholder meeting in New York.
He brings Andy, Dwight and Oscar along for the ride in the limo that was sent, making Oscar wonder why the company would spend money on sending a limo when it's about to go bankrupt.
Oscar is further baffled at the fact that they booked a huge conference room for the meeting. Andy suggests that Oscar take a stand, but Oscar refuses to for fear of losing his job.
When the meeting begins, the panel, which Michael is a part of, is greeted by jeers, which is not what Michael was hoping for.
Michael is commended by CEO Alan for his ability to maintain profitability with the Scranton branch.
When the meeting appears to be going nowhere, the panel takes a break, but not before Michael gives the crowd the false hope of a 45-day plan to fix Dunder Mifflin.
Jim has a hard time getting Ryan to do work, as Ryan sees no point since the company is on the verge of closing.
Ryan sends an email around the office regarding Jim's lack of authority over the office, prompting Phyllis to take a two hour lunch.
Jim thinks that he needs to make an example of Ryan in front of everyone, which Pam doesn't think Jim is capable of doing.
Jim ultimately decides to give Ryan his own new personal office space in the small closet in the kitchen without any Internet.
Humiliated, Ryan apologizes, but Jim puts him in the closet anyway.
Back in New York, a frustrated Wallace is asking Michael what his 45-day plan is for the shareholders. Michael doesn't have an idea, so he calls Oscar into the hotel room for some suggestions.
Oscar doesn't give any suggestions, so the former U.S. Congressman presiding over the meeting calls Michael a moron and takes away his limo privileges.
Michael then triumphantly sneaks away with Dwight, Andy, and Oscar into their limo and drive out of the city.
The camera catches a glance at the stock market ticker, where the Dunder Mifflin (DMI) stock price, currently $1.13, continues to drop.

The Dunder Mifflin stock symbol is DMI. Do you know what that stands for? Dummies, morons, and idiots. Because that's what you'd have to be to own it. And as one of those idiots, I believe the board owes me answers.Oscar
