    Aww man the sale is over now=[

    The list is from early February. Season 5 wasn’t over yet.

    OMG and how could anyone forget ‘The Dinner Party’?! I LOVE that ep!

    I was also surprised by Chair Model (although the bit at the end where Michael and Dwight sing ‘American Pie’ at her grave is pretty funny) and disappointed by no ‘The Dundies’ – definitely high on my list if not the fave. And what about Season 5?

  5. 28. Mose  

    All classics except perhaps for “Chair Model”.

  6. 27. RIP Sprinkles  

    Buisness School is my favorite episode ever! As for Arrested Development, I wish iTunes would actually allow me to download videos. Seems I don’t have the latest version yet whenever I try to update it doesn’t work at all.

    No, he just named a few from each season, and Season 4 only had like 12 episodes.

  8. 25. Tiff  

    Wow, a lot of his favorites were sort of inspired by the Office UK. I feel like Health Care, The Alliance, and Performance Review were all sort of taken from stuff from the the UK series.

    I honestly can’t believe his favorites from the 3rd season, though–in my opinion, those were Gay Witch Hunt, The Convict, and Business School are three of the worst episodes of the Office EVER. I like his choices for season 2 and season 4, though…

    I’ve always wanted to know his favorites!
    No Dundies? I’m surprised. I would have left Chair Model out.

  10. 23. Hollis P. Flax  

    He has fantastic taste. Although I would have added “Conflict Resolution” and “Goodbye Toby.”

  11. 22. Scott  

    It’s no coincidence that most of them are from Seasons 1-3.

    Love all of these, but “The Fire” is still the first episode I show to anyone I’m trying to convince that the show is great.

  14. 19. Ms. Beesly If You're Nasty  

    I noticed that the list starting at #1 goes in ascending order by season:

    Season One: Health Care(1), The Alliance(2)
    Season Two: Office Olympics(3), Performance Review(4), The Injury(5)
    Season Three: Gay Witch Hunt(6), The Convict(7), Business School(8)
    Season Four: Local Ad(9), Chair Model(10).

    I wonder if this was on purpose? Or maybe Greg Daniels’ favorites just happen to be in chronological order by season, lol.

    These episodes are ALL amazing. Health Care is my favourite season one episode, the convict is my favourite season 3, the Office Olympics and The Injury are GREAT! Love ya Greg

  16. 17. Sir Lemming  

    Good choices. “Local Ad” is definitely a standout from season 4.

  17. 16. m'tuna  

    Health Care is my favorite too! (along with The Dundies). I die everytime when Dwight brings up Count Choculitis.

  18. 15. phyllis*farm  

    And the vastly underrated Email Surveillance continues its lack of love.

  19. 14. a.w.  

    I would have to replace The Convict, and Chair Model with Drug Testing and Dinner Party, but otherwise I like this top 10.

  20. 13. fire-ed guy  

    Funny he didn’t pick any from season five. Conflict resolution is my favorite…
