Dwight is not happy with the whole Jim/Michael co-management team decision.
Michael decides not to sign Dwight's expense report because Wallace says he's "big picture."
Jim also won't sign it because Dwight won't say please.
Dwight goes back to Michael saying he wants to file a complaint against "the tallest guy in the office" and nearly convinces Michael but doesn't succeed in the end.
Michael tries to call everyone in to the conference room for a long meeting but Jim asks to see him in his office first.
Everyone in the office is still a little uneasy about having two bosses. Jim tells Michael to stop all of the unnecessary long meeting they have been having and Michael finally agrees that they will have no more meeting that week.
Pam takes a donut from the breakroom even though she is worried about fitting into her wedding dress and being pregnant.
She tells Phyllis that she and Jim do have a wedding registry but they would appreciate cash too. Phyllis misses the point and says she will get them a birdhouse mailbox.
Jim catches Michael having a meeting in his office and is upset, the meeting breaks up and Michael still doesn't seem to understand the whole meaning of having a co-manager.
David Wallace calls them and tells them that there will be no cost-of-living raise this year, only a small amount for each branch, which the managers have to decide how to use it.
Jim and Michael are already arguing while on the phone and Wallace makes sure that it isn't going to be a problem. Michael and Jim finally agree to work it out.
Jim and Michael have a conference meeting in their office. Michael wants to sneak a 1.5 percent raise into everyone's paychecks but Jim decides they need to weigh the pros and cons.
Jim makes a pie chart of how Michael spends his time with the majority going to "procrastination" and "distracting others" with a small sliver dedicated to critical thinking.
Eventually, Jim goes out to announce that the raises will go to the sales people.
Michael and Jim are assigning everyone to a point system in the office to see who deserves raises. Dwight invites everyone in to see the point system and of course they all get upset.
Jim tries to defend himself but he and Michael skip out before things get crazy. Dwight tries to get everyone to revolt against Jim in a management position but everyone isn't swayed.
Jim and Michael are in his office, and Michael brings him a mug that says "World's Best Boss." Jim realizes that Jim is his only friend in the office other than Pam.
Ryan comes into the break room asking Pam, "would you rather have 100 dollars now or 5,000 a year from now?"
She decides on the first one but ends up writing him a 50 dollar check for broker fees.
Look it doesn't take a genius to know that every organization thrives when it has two leaders. [shakes head] Go ahead, name a country that doesn't have two presidents. A boat that sets sail without two captains. Where would Catholicism be, without the popes.Oscar

Jim: Yesterday, we had a meeting about planets.
Michael: Mmm. Well to be fair, Jim... James. Jimothy? [Jim nods] To be fair, Jimothy, ah that sounds weird. Are you okay with being called Jim?
Jim: I am.
Michael: Alright. Jim, to be fair, the conversation wasn't about planets. At first we were talking about introducing a line of toilet paper. And what part of the human body does one use toilet paper upon? So you draw a line from there to the other planets... and I think by the end we learned a little bit about how small we are.
Jim: Yes, I agree, and-
Michael: Because it's a big universe and we're all just little tiny specks, of dust.
