In ("Family Leave") Michael works at Search and makes full use of their employee benefits. He is shown playing volleyball (which involves burying his head in the sand), trying to enroll in a family self-defense course (believing it to teach skills to defend oneself from their family), and generally staying busy.
In ("Self-Deportation") Michael is apprehended by Search employees while escaping in their mapping vehicle to Mexico. Upon return to headquarters he is given a smaller car. He later teaches a family-on-family self-defense course.
