  1. My 20th favorite, and my actual all time favorite episode(s) was Jim and Pam’s wedding. I think I cried more watching them get married than I will at my own wedding!

  2. I just went through the list and checked off my faves, but the ultimate last one I checked off was “The Fire”. Season 2 was my absolute favorite, and I enjoyed that episode for so many reasons. Just because it was my “last” pick doesn’t mean I like it any less than the rest.

    The Desert Island game was hilarious, Dwight throwing the water jug into the kitchen, Michael’s rules of business to Ryan, Dwight sitting in his car listening to “Everybody Hurts”, and “Ryan started the fiyah!” COMEDY GOLD!

  3. I picked “Whistleblower” as my twentieth favorite due to the fact that, though it was not my favorite finale by far, it teased the return of Holly Flax. For those last ten seconds alone, it quickly made my top twenty. Who doesn’t want to see her return or see Michael happy? He deserves it.

  4. You know what they say about a car wreck, where it’s so awful you can’t look away? The Dundees are like a car wreck that you want to look away from but you have to stare at it because your boss is making you.

  5. My 20th favorite was Money. Most of my other favorites were from seasons 1-3 because that was when the Office was at its best (even though it is still very good). I picked this episode because it had some great Jim and Pam moments (outside of the office), some great Michael and Jan moments, and of course it made me laugh.

  6. My 20th favorite was “Secretary’s Day” because we got to know Erin a little better, we saw Michael get weird-ed out by someone else for a change, and in the end Michael was nice to Erin.

    Add to that my favorite Erin quote, “In the foster home, my hair was my room” plus the classic Michael “I’ll have what she’s having” line when Erin is losing it, and you get a great episode of The Office.

  7. The last one I selected was “Office Olympics”. My favorite part of it was when they had the closing ceremonies. I loved Pam’s flying birds decorations. I also was amused by the national anthem being played because Michael’s condo is in America. Small details really make the show!

  8. “I’m date Mike. Nice to meet me,” he says wide-eyed while his black Kangol hat sits backward on his head. CLASSIC. “Happy Hour” is by far the twentieth best episode ever. It would be higher up my list, but Michael Scott is so repulsive while on a date, I had to make it my ‘last’ favorite. “Read it, I own it. But no, I haven’t read it.” Oh, man was the writing on this episode killer! I watch The Office literally, every day, and it is because of genius like this. I mean come on, air guitar on a pool cue? Pure amazingness. And seriously, amazingness is totally a word so please don’t DQ me for it. The Office rules!

  9. My 20th favorite was Goodbye Toby. Everything in the first four seasons was too amazing to allow anything the last two years to top it.

  10. My picks are all in the first 3 seasons. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the later episodes, but my favorites are by far the earlier episodes.

    My 20th pick is Beach Games. Besides being a very funny episode, it is an important episode as a turning point for Pam’s character.

  11. My 20th favorite was “Product Recall”. The entire plot was unique to the show and I loved the side story with poor Andy trying to get back to a normal life only to discover he was dating someone in high school.

    Also, that episode made it acceptable to say “Beer Me” anytime you need anything. Classic.

  12. I picked safety training last because i loved the whole episode, my favorite part is the scene when Michael is acting depressed on top of the building.

  13. Michael’s face when he first witnessed Stanely’s total inability to play basketball in the Basketball episode was priceless. I chose this episode at 20 because although it was from the quiet first season where everyone was trying to find their way, it still gave us a good look at each of the characters on the show and their strengths (Kevin has the sweetest shot ever seen) and their weaknesses( Michael should never step on a court again in his life).

  14. My 20th pick was Lecture Circuit Part 1. This just barely squeezed in to my top 20 because of the amazing Jim/Dwight/Kelly interaction and the amazing duo of Pam and Michael. I love it when Karen and Pam bond in the end but my all time favorite part of the episode is when Pam throws the Mounds bars at the Utica employees. I just got so much joy scanning the list and picking my 20 faves.

  15. my 20th favorite was Secret Santa. it was a fun episode, and i love christmas anyway, but my favorite moment was when dwight began his talking head and the frame included all of his elf hat. for some reason that made me laugh a lot.

  16. My last pick was Niagara. The second half of season 6 just really wasn’t cutting it for me, but Niagara was nothing but amazing!

  17. One of my all time favorites is the booze cruise. So many good moments in that episode between jim and pam and jim and michael. My favorite season has to be season 3 i have watched that dvd set more than any of them and i have them all.
