Since Andy made his debut on The Office, he had always taken the role of a character with an odd side to him. But with Jim and Pam not awake enough to pay much attention, and Andy remembering quite well what it was like to be cheated on in a relationship, Andy ended up being the voice of reason in this episode.
In the absence of a conflict between Dwight and Jim, another conflict took place, that was very reminiscent of the every man versus the workplace goofball. Unlike Jim, Darryl is much more spontaneous with his pranking, and Andy, unlike Dwight, was not out to cause any trouble. Darryl just happened to remember an incident from two years ago, and he was exacting his revenge on Andy.
