The Office Double Date quotes

Dwight: Don’t mention it. You owe me one. You all owe me one.

Dwight: Fish sticks are not an aphrodisiac. You’re thinking of deer penis.

Dwight: Jeez. When did everyone get so cynical?

Dwight: That’s right. You’re a woman and you need to refuse food the first time.

Pam: No way out. No way out.

Ryan: I’ve always found beauty in uncommon places.

Michael: There’s no better medicine than birthday lunch.

Michael: So open wide, Pam, and take a big ol’ spoonful of birthday lunch medicine. Take with food.

Michael: The rest of the story has been censored due to inappropriosity.

Creed: Something’s up. That paper was never supposed to arrive.

Michael: Just want you to succeed, Pammy.

Pam: I have a whistle in my purse. I didn’t even blow it.

Andy: Do not test my politeness.

Dwight: If you clench your buttocks together while walking, you can really take the pressure off your knees.

Michael: I am not robbing the cradle. If anything, I am robbing the grave.

Michael: Do I really want to go snowboarding? No. But I would like to if I wanted to.

Jim: Is that Shel Silverstein?

Pam: Home run, MIchael.
Jim: You set the bar so high.
Michael: That was a bunt.

Pam: Okay, weirdo. C’mon, it’s time for cake.

Michael: I want you to enjoy that cake because I have something terrible I need to tell you.

Michael: I want you to enjoy your cake before I tell you this terrible, terrible thing.

Michael: Who is Kafka Esque? I don’t know him.

Michael: There’s another woman, and her name is Italy. And skydiving. And bungee jumping.

Michael: I want kids. And you, unfortunately, have already completed that part of your journey down there.

Andy: What if Dwight dies and I still owe him something? That is a recipe for a ghost.

Dwight: They’re mushrooms. They don’t get that high.

Pam: I have the worst attitude of any person here.

Michael: Talk to me, face. Tell me what Pam’s brain is thinking.

Pam: I’m going to hit you as hard as I can.

Kelly: Pam. She’s going to punch the crap out of your face after work.

Kelly: Pam has that crazy pregnancy strength right now.

Toby: The power comes from the back foot.

Meredith: He’s not in the men’s room, although the seat was warm, so we may have just missed him.

Kevin: Why can’t you just agree with me sometimes?

Michael: I’m scared I’m going to love it.

Pam: Don’t ever date a member of my family again.

Michael: For the record, your mom came on to me.

Dwight: Why are you limping?

Dwight: Let’s get some raw meat on that face. I’ve got a chicken in the freezer upstairs.

Michael: I have a hover car and a hover house. And my wife is a runner. And it shows.

  1. Well, now that Kelly, Dwight and Pam have hit Michael…who’s next?

    Also, I love Creed. His talking head about the paper arriving was gold.

  2. Pretty good classic awkward Office! Toby teaching Pam how to throw a punch was my favorite part, he’s clearly been practicing for years.

  3. Second favorite of the year.

    I love when they go a little deeper into Michael’s character. I thought they were going to lose it during the dinner scene, but it was done well.

    Well done!

  4. Loved loved loved. I called the sneak attack by Pam. At the restaurant, I couldn’t tell if Pam was being sincere about warming up to the idea about Michael, or if she was just trying to get him to back off? Well, whatever it was it worked. I loved Jim and Pam too. Great episode.

  5. This episode was perfect – as far as story arcs go. The way this played out with Michael, Helene and Pam was perfect and in character and I loved it! After 5 1/2 years watching this show, it went totally as I would expect, and I think that’s a good thing because I feel like I know these characters a little. Not a particularly funny episode, but I know I will laugh more the second time I see it. The Dwight/Andy side story was great too – Andy being Mr. Polite is perfect.

    Great job!

  6. Decent episode. I thought it would have been better if Pam couldn’t get herself to hit Michael because when she looks at him she realizes how screwed up his life is and ends up feeling sorry for him.

  7. awesome episode. Andy continues to be a great character to watch. Steve carell did a really good job in this one.

  8. This episode was pretty good; I laughed a few times. However, Pam slapping Michael? Come on. This is getting so far out of reality. It’s such a bummer. I loved seasons 1-3 for their realness…this is getting ridiculous.

  9. it was okayyyyy. not my favorite, by far, but not the worst.

    the whole slap thing was kinda off putting, actually. although — the double date was fantastic. loved when michael added up the years (and then got it wrong).

  10. Dwight and Andy saved this episode for me. I absolutely love the dynamic between those two characters. “That is a recipe for a ghost!” So funny.

  11. That slap was awesome!! Also didn’t know that Toby was good at throwing punches!

    All in all, the episode was pretty funny. I think the best parts were when Dwight and Andy were being nice to each other and doing different things and, in a way, when Dwight was rubbing that raw chicken against Michael’s face!

  12. This was awesome! Not as great as last week IMO, but still fantastic. Michael talking about robbing the grave was fantastic.
