Summary

Ton's wife had seen the news about the company's new president and wonders if Ton will get a bonus, but he isn't sure. Ton then have issues with his tablet and his daughters tells him he needs a new one. Ton disagrees, saying that the tablets are all the same, but his daughters correct him, explaining how different they are, which causes Ton to rage as he can't understand what they are saying.

Ton turns the office AC quite low, causing Fenneko and Retsuko to feel cold, causing them to leave the office. They meet Haida and Fenneko forces him to come with them while they take a break. While drinking coffee and Fenneko telling a story of how she figured out someone address, Tsunoda comes and takes Fenneko, leaving Retsuko and Haida alone. Fenneko and Tsunoda then observe Haida and Retsuko, but neither of them says anything for couple of minutes. Eventually Haida, tells Retsuko that he has some work to do and leaves.

Ton receives a call from Himuro, who invites him to his office. Himuro then talks about some work and that the accounting department overheads equate to 4% to 5% of the company's gross profit, while normally it should be 2% to 3%. Because of that, Himuro wants to reduce expenses, that include personal cuts. If no one wants to resign, then they will encourage them. Himuro tells Ton to make a list of potential targets. Ton stops him and ask him to change his mind as they do things their way. Himuro tells him that the company isn't theirs, but belongs to the shareholders.

Fenneko and Retsuko put on additional shirts and return to the office, however, this time they find extreme heat as Ton had forbidden anyone from touching the AC. Komiya begs him to turn it on, but Ton tells him they need to make cost cuts.

The next day, Ton sends Retsuko to the records to find some documents. Recalling Himuro's words, he looks at his staff and sees all of them slacking off. While in the record room, Fenneko and Tsunoda enter. Fenneko asks her if she pushed Haida too hard and since things are getting worse, should she tell Retsuko what Haida said. Tsunoda advice her not to, however, Retsuko hears them and tells them to tell her.

At the karaoke, Ton sings about of wanting to make his family happy, even if its means he is bad in other people's eyes. He decides to make the list and tells Komiya the first one on it is Kabae, who spread false rumors and its annoying. Komiya comments she knows all about accounting and keeps the mood cheerful. Ton then says the second one is Haida, who is unmotivated and unambitious. Komiya adds that he rarely makes mistakes and knows the most about IT in accounting. The third one is Anai, uncooperative and overly aggressive. Komiya adds that he had improved and mellowed out since he hooked up with a cute girl. Ton gets annoyed that Komiya isn't ruthless like him, but Komiya states he gets cold feet when he needs to be the bad guy. Ton then adds Komiya as number four, excessive flattery and hardly works. Ton then wonders about Retsuko. Komiya comments she is average worker, however Ton adds that her work suffered due to her performance in OTMGirls. Komiya belives she is likely to give in to a suggestion to leave, which causes Ton to make his mind.

The next day, Ton visits Himuro, giving him a document that states he won't be asking anyone to resign as they are all exceptional. Himuro reminds him of what he told him earlier, but Ton defends himself saying that a F1 race cannot be done without the pit crew. At home, Ton asks his wife if she remembers when everyone was loosing their jobs and that due to Shachou, they made it without loosing anyone. Shachou had told him that they are family and Ton had decided to not fire anyone.
