Andy has ridiculously bad timing by driving down to Florida to tell Erin he loves her and bring her back to Scranton. But Erin has built a (kinda lonely and boring) life for herself caring for her old lady (the sharp Georgia Engel). And, in a rather heartfelt and revealing conversation, she tells Andy that he’s broken her heart too many times and she’s realized it will never work for them....
