Sure, it started out as little more than an awkwardly funny sight gag when Henry From Accounting (sexy geek Christopher Gorham) caught Betty (the radiant America Ferrera, pictured) clutching a handful of prophylactics after she’d been pretending to look for something in someone else’s purse. But her explanation — “I was just making sure that everyone was being safe… you know, office party hookups?” — was, in the words of her new office crush, “very responsible.” Nicely played, Team Betty!
