The Office After Hours quotes

Manually transcribed by tanster :)

Angela: Newsflash! If you didn’t carry it around in your belly for nine months, it isn’t your kid.
Pam: Exactly.

Oscar: The world just needs more Pam-Jim DNA. Thank you, no.

Oscar: Un. Be. Liev. Able.

Dwight: Dwight, VP. Dwight, VP. Dwight, VP.

Dwight: English people’s main use today is judging American talent. They’re mean. But they’re incisive.

Nellie: I’m not allowed to say it’s mandatory. So let’s just call it compulsory.

Cathy: Maybe we’ll see the real Talla-Nasty we’ve been hearing so much about.

Andy: Ball droppings can be beautiful. For example, when it turns an awkward soprano into a rich full tenor.

Dwight: Genghis Khan could take them both down ’cause he’s not afraid to kill children.

Ryan: I will have a glass of your oakiest Chardonnay, please.

Ryan: You come with me. We’re going to get you that waffle.

Packer: The cowgirl has chosen her saddle.

Dwight: If anyone’s having sex with Nellie for personal gain, it’s me.

Dwight: Anyone can tie a knot. The real skill is in untying it.

Stanley: Careful, Jim. It gets easier and easier.

Ryan: Nobody knows more than you. Especially me.

Ryan: Shut your beautiful, beautiful mouth, please.

Kelly: Three dots means “to be continued,” four dots is a typo, but five dots means “Woah. Do not make me say what I want to say, baby, but if I did, it would blow your mind.” Dot dot dot dot dot.

Darryl: Puts me in an insane asylum just thinking about it. I’m stranded on Shutter Island over here.

Nellie: You look like Ed Harris. If they stretched him a little bit.

Dwight: You want to see a picture of me trapped under a tree?

Gabe: You have to call me by my name. Gabriel Susan Lewis.

Dwight: Our biggest attraction is our 200-year old mattresses.

Dwight: I am going to generate myself into a human trap.

Dwight: Such a chorus girl.

Gabe: They don’t make these cords in boot cut anymore.

Dwight: A real man swallows his vomit when a lady is present.

Ryan: Six months? Okay, I’m in love with Kelly.

Dwight: Win at all costs. Don’t respect women.

  1. wait.. Jim has to go to Tallahassee? But I want him in Scranton. And Dwight should stay there too to get back together with Angela.

  2. interesting to see packer coming back. can’t say i’m excited though as packer’s humour often played off michael

  3. I have a bad feeling about this unwelcome visitor based on the Pool Party episode. If they go there it will really disappoint me.

  4. Looking forward to this ep. Usually episodes where the focus is on one of the core office members like Dwight/Jim are the best. I’m gonna guess the unwelcome visitor is Kathy. I don’t expect Jim to fall for any advances at all if this is the case but it should make for a good episode.

  5. It does say UNWELCOME visitor though.
    So it’s obvious that Jim is gonna probably resist anything.

    This stuff needs to happen to make JAM interesting and more meaningful again.

  6. Perhaps I’m wrong but I think maybe people are jumping to conclusions. I don’t think it’s going to be Kathy in Jim’s room. For a start, why would she be in Tallahassee, she doesn’t even work for Dunder Mifflin, she was a temp filling in for Pam, and now Pam’s back, so Kathy should be gone. I think it’s probably more likely that Jim’s unwelcome visitor is a snake or something. However, I was sad to read that Jim goes to Tallahassee. They’re going to be there for six episodes! Why would he leave his wife on her own with a newborn and a toddler for six weeks? That seems completely out of character. Poor Pam!

  7. I agree with #7. When I first read unwelcome visitor, I thought of an animal. Specifically, I thought it was a raccoon. It’s more than possible when Dwight’s around.

  8. because it wouldn’t be much of a story point for jim, for them to mention it in the decription if it was just an… ‘animal’….

    They’ve been hinting at that girl being trouble from the get go. Now that Pam’s back it makes sense for it to start back up.

  9. To be mentioned as a sub-plot at all, the “unwelcome visitor” must be hard to get rid of. If it was Kathy, she would come to his room, Jim would tell her to leave, end of story. It makes more sense for it to be an animal. Besides, I’ve been thinking about it and it doesn’t seem at all likely that Jim would want to go to Tallahassee. He wouldn’t want to leave Pam and the kids, Dwight is leading the trip, both the Pyramid and the Sabre store are terrible ideas, so maybe the storyline is that he finds the whole trip hellish – finding some sort of creature in his room would certainly add to that feeling. But as I say, maybe I’m wrong, maybe it is Kathy and he can’t get rid of her because it turns out she’s a psycho, or maybe the visit results in some awkward misunderstanding, like word getting back to Pam. I don’t know, but my money’s on it being a snake.

  10. Snake in the room seems like a silly sub plot to me that’s why i think it’s something bigger. Who knows though….

  11. I also don’t think it’s Cathy since she isn’t listed as a guest star after jury duty. Why would she be there if Pam was back?

  12. Packer?? Did I read that right? As for the Jim plotline, I’m guessing Dwight somehow does something to force Jim to Florida, just to mess with Jim. I bet it will be something along the lines of a snake or raccoon. Seriously, though, let’s focus on what’s important here: it’s Dwight vs. Packer!

  13. I think everybody’s overreacting with the whole Cathy/Jim thing.
    I’d definitely go with the animal idea.
    But I don’t even understand why Jim is going to Tallahassee in the first place. Why is he there if Dwight and Todd Packer are the ones trying to get the job?

  14. My vote is that the unwelcome visitor is Nellie – and watching Nellie hit on Jim would actually be hilarious.

  15. I agree withy TobyFan. Watching Catherine Tate as Nellie hit on Jim would be hilarious and worth watching!
