The Escape Artist
Tim and his coworkers go on an office retreat, but instead of flying to Orlando, they visit Coney Island - in the winter. The ruse is part of the year's corporate goal of "distrust-building." The Boss explains that people work harder when they hate each other and then makes Tim tell the group something embarrassing about Stu (that he masturbates at his desk, which surprises no one). After this exercise, an angry magician uses his show to teach the group not to trust anyone in business or in life. He enlists Tim to aid him during the escape portion of his show, locking himself in a tank full of water before forcing Tim to swallow the key. Midway through the act, with the magician struggling inside the tank, Tim frees him... but the next day a lawyer serves Tim papers. The magician is suing Tim for ruining his act. Tim's lawyer says that any jury would like the magician better, so Tim brings Helen from work as a witness. At the courthouse, however, Helen turns on Tim - driving home the lesson that he can trust no one.
