Erin: I’m breaking up with him. Bam, Andy! How ya like me now?
Dwight: I really like Andy these days. He’s pretend, and he does exactly as I tell him to. All that will change when Real Andy comes back tomorrow. Unless he comes back as Pretend Dwight. In which case, we’re in for an epic, confusing showdown.
Kevin: I guess it’s goodbye chunky lemon milk.
Meredith: Let’s get some booze and some cocaine and just blow it out. No consequences.
Phyllis: You could probably just bring whoever it is you use to kill your loneliness.
Stanley: I’ll pretend to be your husband. I’m already sick of you so it’ll seem realistic.

Kevin: He just waltzes back in here like he owns the chunky lemon milk!
Dwight: And instead of a wolf, I cried, genetically engineered monster wolf.

Pam: I think that you should stay and I think we should fight.
Jim: Alright, put your dukes up, Beesly.
Erin: And just so you know, I was worried you were dead. You were gone for three months!
David: Hey, Andy. Still here. What was that about three months?
