IMPORTANT NOTE: not all episodes were available in the poll. I can only enter 99 choices in a poll, so I omitted the bottom 40 episodes from the All-Time Fan Favorite Poll 2010 in order to accommodate all Season 7 episodes. Not a perfect system, but there you go.

Notes on the top 20

  • The seasons represented in the Top 20 are Season 2 (7 episodes); Season 3 (4 episodes); Season 4 (3 episodes); Seasons 5 and 7 (each with 2 episodes); and Seasons 1 and 6 (each with 1 episode).
  • The writers represented in the Top 20 are Greg Daniels (6 episodes); Jennifer Celotta (4 episodes); Mindy Kaling, Paul Lieberstein, and Michael Schur (each with 3 episodes); Lee Eisenberg, Gene Stupnitsky, and B.J. Novak (each with 2 episodes); and Steve Carell (1 episode).
  • The directors represented in the Top 20 are Paul Feig (6 episodes); Ken Kwapis (5 episodes); Greg Daniels (3 episodes); Harold Ramis (2 episodes); and Jeffrey Blitz, Tucker Gates, Bryan Gordon, and Charles McDougall (each with 1 episode).

    You guys should do a point weighting system this year. Maybe make a top 5 or 3 because if you weight the 2nd and 3rd one, you get a better and more accurate feel of what everyone’s favorite episodes are.


  2. 106. soup snake  

    I would’ve liked to see “Goodbye Michael” come out on top. Why is everyone so in love with “Casino Night?” Is it because Jim finally revealed his true feelings for Pam? I love the episode too, but I don’t think it deserves to be #1 over an episode where we see the great Michael Scott leave Dunder Mifflin forever . . oh well. I’m a bit surprised “The Dundies” came in at number two. That’s definitely one of my favorite episodes, but it’s not my number two. I think “The Search”, “Training Day”, “Ultimatum”, and “The Sting” should’ve been ranked higher. I loved “Ultimatum!” Hilarious episodes made it in the top 20 so I’m happy with that.


  3. 105. Marie  

    15/20 of my favourites were in the top 20! :) but seriously,it was hard to not pick more. i could have added at least 20 more episodes to my list this time around.. there are so many excellent (and epic) episodes!


  4. 104. Roy's Mugshot  

    Thank goodness Casino Night landed in its rightful spot on top. A little surprised, but not disappointed The Dundies ended up #2. Sure wish we could have lost a few of those Season 7 episodes at the bottom for more from Seasons 2,3,4 and 5.


  5. 103. Michelle  

    The Merger, hands down. Actually all of season 3 is definitely my favorite.


  6. 102. remember to call  

    Well deserved place for Goodbye Michael, although Casino Night is not the best. Top 5, probably, Top 10, definitely, but not the best. I would rank Niagara first, Stress Relief second, Product Recall third. The fact that Product Recall, in all its Bears-Beets-Battlestar Galactica glory, is ranked 55th is just wrong. The Dundies, The Injury, Goodbye Michael, The Job, Casino Night, and Goodbye Toby are also locks for my Top 10. Money, Women’s Appreciation, Secret Santa (another one way too low on the list), Safety Training, Office Olympics, Fun Run, Benihana Christmas, Gay Witch Hunt, and The Client compete for that last spot.


  7. 101. the zoppity  

    Phyllis’ Wedding better than China, Grief Counseling, Business School, and Branch Wars? Nope.


  8. 100. Angie  

    Yay Casino Night! I think that episode is pretty much untouchable.


  9. 99. JimisBigBird  

    Wow, this turned out quite a bit different than i imagined. Some episodes in the top 20 i expected, others not so much.

    But i am very happy Casino Night came in 1st, where it belongs. And Niagara! Interesting how the Dundies snuck on up there. I think Michael’s Last Dundies probably made everybody’s love of that one resurface.


  10. 98. TheOriginalMichele  

    20th favorite episode? “Money” just for the line “I declare bankruptcy!!!!!!” alone.


  11. 97. Sara  

    The last of my picks is Niagara. It’s a really great episode but the bit with Kevin and his shoes just seems over the top!


  12. 96. Michael McFadden  

    I really hope season 2 and 3 fill up the majority of the votes for the all time best episodes. Season 4 and parts of five were still classic office but it completely when down hill in season 6. Anyways, I hope either Casino Night or The Injury get the top spot. It’s an amazing episode and I still miss the classic office feel.


  13. 95. Heffernan  

    The last episode I chose was “Money”. It has one of the funniest lines in Office history (I… DECLARE… BANKRUPTCY!) plus a ton of other great moments like the ‘Who Vs. Whom’ debate, Jan throwing her keys at Oscar like he is a valet. plus “due to Michael’s clever financial maneuvering, he finds himself tremendously in debt.” all around GREAT episode.


  14. 94. JMJ  

    I picked Dwight K Schrute, Acting Manager as my 20th favorite. Most of the episodes I picked were classic old school Office from season 1-4. This episode squeezed onto the list because just when I thought the Office might not make it without Steve Carell, they throw this episode out there and made me remember just how awesome The Office is.


  15. 93. John  

    I chose “Inner Circle” as my 20th. My Top 19 were either the one I thought to be funny or where Michael showed us his more “human side”.

    I held my 20th to a different standard. That is, one that has me a little scared, because it was the start of a new era, but gave me relief because it turned out to be fine. Gives me hope for the future.


  16. 92. soup snake  

    I was bummed to see some of my favorite episodes from season five not make it on the poll. I really loved “Crime Aid” and “Business Ethics.” I can’t believe they were in the bottom 40. My 20th favorite episode was “Goodbye Michael.” The episode was just brilliant. It had funny moments and sad moments. There were so many memorable moments. It had everything a perfect hour of television would need. I cried every time I watched it and it’s an episode I will always remember.


  17. 91. Rohan  

    My favorite episode was safety training! I just find it funny how dispute keeps doing so many stupid things but really suffers no repercussions. It also has a ton of hilarious highlights like when Michael says “Stanley you can’t die! The president is black!” or when Andy starts singing “staying alive” while they’re doing CPR training! So many laughs!


  18. 90. Meredith  

    I didn’t go in any particular order, but one of my all-time favorites is Dinner Party. I laugh so hard throughout the entire episode every time I watch it. I particularly love the parts when Jan plays “That One Night,” they go in Jan’s candle room(the whole tour really), and of course the fight! Classic episode.


  19. 89. lauren  

    It was simple! I gave my last pick to “Dinner Party”. It was absolutely perfect. It had the perfect dynamics and just watching Michael finally have dinner with Jim and Pam and watching how awkward everyone was together was just amazing. Love every character in this episode.


  20. 88. Tim  

    My 20th favorite episode is “The Sting.” It shows Dwight, Jim, and Michael all in their best showings. It also let’s us see their classic antics together. Over all, the sting is a newer episode with a season one or two feel and let’s us enjoy the office with an original office feel.
