Summary:

Karen thinks that a small party - her apartment is NOT huge - of a select few coworkers, to celebrate her recent move to her very cool new apartment, is a fantastic and totally non-problematic idea. Jim wants her to get to know them. No?

Jim is... unconvinced. He suspects that there are agendas at play here.

But, as she says, it's only one night. What could possibly go wrong? 

Could this be another season 3 fixer???
