The Nard Dog is always good for a songspeak on The Office. Last Thursday was no exception.
Andy recently had his heart broken when he found out his fiance Angela had been sleeping with Dwight. He called off the wedding, and has been depressed ever since. So it makes sense that when Stanley brings a cute client into the office for a meeting that he became smitten and had a little crush.
