The Office Garage Sale extras
- New York Magazine interview with Amy Ryan about the proposal: “The script was so sweet anyway that it made us all have a good cry,” she said, “but coupled with the fact that it was the start of Steve’s departure and it was my own, yeah, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house — literally, from the water pouring down on us and from our emotions. But it was a beautiful night … We did it in two takes, but it took the crew quite a bit to vacuum up all the water with these big power vacs and reset everything as we stood by in robes, shivering.”
- The box that holds Holly’s engagement ring comes from real-life Scranton jewelry store, Boccardo Jewelers.

The Office Garage Sale quotes
Pam: Ten cents of every dollar is going into the party fund. So we can throw parties for ourselves.
Dwight: The warmth will lure people inside.
Dwight: Schrutes are farmers by hobby, and traders by trade.
Holly: If it’s a problem with the neon, I can have my neon guy take a look.
Michael: I don’t have an “in case.” Do you have an “in case”?
Kelly: Get out of here, Dwight. You’re blocking my table with your giant body.
Dwight: Who else is she seeing? I better lock her down fast.
Kelly: You can take my Helen Fielding collection.
Dwight: And the Jennifer Weiner collection.
Dwight: “Professor Copperfield’s Miracle Legumes”?
Dwight: Nice try. No, correction, terrible try.
Pam: I’m just coming out to see what you’re doing and maybe stop you.
Michael: You know what, do you have a siphon?
Michael: I’m asking Holly a question in fire.
Pam: You’ve had two ideas today, and one of them was great.
Ryan: Pesto party? Really?
Ryan: It’s cool, it’s kosher, it’s all good.
Dwight: Ryan, you have such an interesting mind.
Ryan sells Mama Sally’s Homemade Pesto (with Phyllis’ photo) and Hot Cha Cha Salsa (with Oscar’s photo).
Dwight: Why would I want some random black man’s old photo album sitting on my bookshelf? I’m not James Franco.
Pam: We want to help you plan the proposal. So that it’s safe and responsible and realistic and doable.
Oscar: If you are in costume, you did something wrong. If at any point you find yourself tying the ring to a dog’s collar, stop and look at yourself.
Andy: We must honorably adhere to the rules that we are making up on the spot.
Phyllis: I have a box of bras under the table if you’re interested.
Michael: How about this. I throw a corpse dressed like me off of the roof. It hits the ground, the head pops off. This leads to me saying the line “I lost my head when I fell in love with you.”
Pam: Holy [bleep]! Is that real?
Michael: Yeah. They say three year’s salary.
Michael: I want this to be an event that everyone talks about always and forever.
Jim: Totally reasonable.
Michael: Get this, Kevin thought I was going to sell my Bowflex for $200, and I told him, dude, this was a prop in my movie.
Holly: I think I need to go home to Colorado.
Michael: No, I am not going to be proposed to in the break room. That is not going to be our story. Should have burned this place down when I had a chance.
Darryl: We’re way past rules, we have been for some time now. We start having rules now, everything we’ve built collapses.
Kevin: And that… is Dallas.
Dwight: I started with a thumbtack and traded my way to a telescope.
Michael: Let’s go for a little walk. I want to show you some stuff.
Michael: This is where Toby announced that he was going to Costa Rica. It was the happiest day of my life. Until the day that you came to replace him.
Michael: Thank goodness none of that was true. Including the herpes. It was an ingrown hair.
Michael: This is where our love faces its toughest test. After this, it’s just smooth sailing for the rest of our lives.
Michael: This is where I fell in love with you. And this is where I ask you to marry me.
Michael: Holly Flax, marrying me will you be?
Holly: Your wife becoming, will be I.
