Dwight tries to help him find it in his email ("You did get the evite to my bar-b-que!"), but it seems as though Michael is just trying to get a last minute hook-up despite the hotel being fully booked for months. Just when you think all is lost, Dwight finds the confirmation code only to have Michael cancel his reservation moments later.
