Christmas time at the office leads to depression for Michael, when his girlfriend Carol breaks up with him. Michael, Andy, Dwight, and Jim then go to a local Benihana's, where both Michael and Andy find dates with two of the restaurant's waitresses. Back at the office, an altercation with Angela on the Party Planning Committee leads Karen and Pam to create their own Christmas party. When the majority of the office decide to go to Karen and Pam's party, Angela becomes upset, and seeing this, Karen and Pam decide to combine the parties. Soon after, Michael and Andy's dates leave them, but Michael nevertheless finds someone to go to Jamaica with him.
