The Office Dwight Christmas quotes
Manually transcribed by tanster :)
Jim: So you know my job has something to do with sports, but you don’t the end of the word “Philadelphia.”
Dwight: Don’t wear the blue striped shirt. It makes your neck look like an old mop handle.
Oscar: I didn’t realize how many of Angela’s opinions I agreed with. Until she tried to have my kneecaps shattered for sleeping with her husband. She makes a lot of very sound points.
Meredith: We’re out there, sweating our balls off every day, busting our balls. We deserve a Christmas party!
Kevin: Mini cupcakes, as in the mini version of regular cupcakes, which is already a mini version of cake, honestly, where does it end with you people?
Dwight: What about an authentic Pennsylvania Dutch Christmas? Drink some gluhwein, enjoy some hasenpfeffer… enjoy Christmas with St. Nicholas’ rural old German companion, Belsnickel!
Stanley: I want tropical Christmas.
Meredith: Topless Christmas.
Creed: Tapas Swiss Miss. Spanish tapas and Swiss Miss hot cocoa. What’s so hard to understand.
Dwight: The sepia tint is from an app on my phone. This is the same photo, Matrix style.
Jim: Am I the only one who wants to try hufflepuffs and schnauzerhosen, and meet this glenpickle guy?
Erin: German terrorists? That’s oddly specific.
Stanley: I love Philly. Dirty town.
Toby: You know who’s not going to get to work on some exciting new startup this year? George Howard Skub. Aka, the alleged Scranton Strangler.
Stanley: See you next Christmas.
Toby: I would start at the beginning, but I think I need to go farther back.
Pam: Dwight, there is one rule that you need to take very seriously. And that is, that there are no rules.
Dwight: You have never been cooler.
Jim: Best. Christmas. Ever.
Pam: You’re welcome.
Jim: Thank you.
Dwight: That is gluhwein, otherwise known as glow wine. Also used to sterilize medical instruments.
Dwight: This is the very spoon that guided my soft skull through the birth canal. When I was born. Enjoy.
Dwight: Somebody’s found the hog maw!
Dwight: This is celebrating Christmas for all of the right reasons.
Dwight: Have you ever tasted a shepherd’s crook?
Dwight: Excuse me. I have to run to my car to take a dump.
Kevin: Wish my car had a bathroom.
Pete: That is transcribed by some fan. They make mistakes.
Toby: Here’s the thing about moonlight. It’s not sunlight.
Kevin: I love this hog mama.
Dwight: I was born to be Belsnickel.
Jim: So he’s kind of like Santa. Except dirty. And worse.
Jim: It’s my favorite part of Christmas. The authority.
Pam: And the fear.
Dwight: The Belsnickel will decide if you are impish or admirable.
Jim: Now I’m going to be all whipped for my first day of work.
Jim: That was the perfect last Christmas party.
Dwight: You quit on Christmas, Christmas quits on you.
Toby: Forget everything you thought you knew about fingerprinting.
Darryl: Meredith’s a little cute, I’m just realizing! She got like an Emma Stone thing.
Erin: I’m still Andy’s girlfriend. But you can leave your arm.
Dwight: No thanks. I’ll just have another Dumatril.
Pam: What happened? Did you miss your bus?
Jim: No. I just missed my wife.
