The Office Junior Salesman quotes

Meredith: Hey, Boom Guy, when are you going to boom me?

Dwight: Finally, I’ll have someone in my desk clump who gets me. It’s like, really, Jim? You don’t understand the difference between a slaugterhouse and a rendering plant? Uh, remind me to not lend you any dead cows or horses!

Clark: I went above and beyond. And under.

Clark: I thought this was an office. Not the Thunderdome.

Dwight: No longer a Pam Jim alliance against Dwight. Now it is Dwight and a friend axis against Pam.

Clark: I’ve been working here 12 weeks. That’s a full season of Homeland.

Clark: That’s like Roald Dahl.
Rolf: Go to hell.

Rolf: I hope you like Norwegian black metal. Because I don’t do ear buds.

Dwight: Trevor’s next, and he’s a real professional. You say jump, and he says, on who.

Jim: Do people like sitting next to you? You’re clean, right?
Clark: Dove Men.
Jim: Nice.

Jim: I need you to breathe in my face right now.

Dwight: I can’t hire Clark. He looks like a Schrute, but he thinks like a Halpert, and he acts like a Beesly.

Clark: I’d Kobayashi Maru it.
Dwight: Damn it. Perfect answer.

Stanley: This… is not natural.

Dwight: I’ve got big expectations, Mose-wise.

Babysitter Melvina: He was a passionate lover and the sweetest little baby!

Babysitter Melvina: You went to X-Men School, too?

Angela: I don’t want to sit next to any of those people for the next 20 years.

Pam: I’m in a position where I’m rooting for Nate. And that just feels wrong.

Pam: I have some pointy trees that I need to round off.

Cousin Zeke: It’s dense. Like bread.

Dwight: Nate is a proven entity, but not without his handicaps — hearing, vision, basic cognition.

Melvina: Do you need to be changed?
Dwight: I do that myself now.

Jim: if I’m not looking south, I’m not living.

Dwight: I guess I just have higher standards for my work colleagues than for my friends.

Jim: I knew it! You designed a uniform for Dunder Mifflin.
Dwight: Summer, winter, jungle, formal.

Clark: I’m sorry. You gotta be this cool for coffee.

    I very much enjoyed this episode. I thought that it focused on Jim/Dwight/Pam very well, the most dependable trio of the show. Also Clark had some great lines, and is really growing on me as a character!

    I got the sense that this episode showed a sort of alternate reality in which Andy was never made regional manager, but rather Dwight. And I like what I saw.

    Great, great episode.

  2. 43. Bad Idea Jeans  

    We need more Trevor and Nate… although that means less Creed, Meredith, Oscar, Stanley, etc.

  3. 42. beeslyrules  

    Anybody know what Darryl said about Dwight’s friends being just like Spiderman? I replayed it many times, but still could not understand the end of the line.

  4. 41. Nick  

    Jim didn’t answer the phone on the callback because Dwight had just laughed at him and he was disappointed about the “No” he thought Wallace had just given him.

  5. 40. Nick  

    @32 I thought that too Ginger but I went back and watched the episode again. Jim doesn’t let Wallace finish and just hangs up. After Dwight laughs at Jim the phone rings again but Jim doesn’t answer… I think Wallace was going to say yes and I believe Athlead will be backed by Wallace and be fine.

    [from tanster: i didn’t understand that part of the scene. why did jim hang up the phone when it rang?]

  6. 39. Pat  

    @34 YES! that’s exactly what I did, love Breaking Bad, great to see Badger in a different, very different role.

  7. 38. Pam  

    I’m not interested in the Pete/Erin storyline but was looking forward to Erin starting the search for her birth parents. If we are going to find out who they or one of them are, they better get on this as the eps are winding down.

    My bets are still on Nellie

  8. 37. Pam  

    This one wasn’t one of my favs but the two things that made me laugh were Mose in the conference room peering at the staff through the blinds and Meredith’s Cleopatra wig.

  9. 36. Randee  

    My husband thinks that maybe the Pete/Erin story will be added to the Farm episode since we’ve been told that they are adding to that episode. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  10. 35. Ryan's Hobbit  

    Woot woot! The return of my namesake made me deliriously happy. Thank you OFFICE XD

  11. 34. Todd Smitts  

    Did the Pete/Erin stuff end up on the cutting room floor?

  12. 33. Molly  

    Fun episode! I loved all of Dwight’s old peeps coming back for one last hurrah. Sensei Ira with the tie on under his Gi was awesome.

    And did anyone else yell out “Badger!” when they saw Dwight’s ‘other cousin’ w/the beard? Breaking Bad fans?!

  13. 32. Jennifer  

    @30 I think she just didn’t want him to get in trouble again and didn’t want everyone else to hear the conversation. Having a conversation around Meredith is like having one with no one around, lol

  14. 31. Ginger  

    Glad to see Jim in the office. Feel bad for him that Dwight ruined his chance with Wallace for possibly investing.

  15. 30. Luke  

    I wish they could have included Sensei Ira’s interview, or at the very least a talking head. Oh well, deleted scene I’m sure. And I was curious about the Erin/Pete storyline. Mostly for Erin’s sake. But the episode did’t feel like it was missing anything. Everything felt justified.

  16. 29. Nate's Dying Mother  

    If you watch the opening scene Pam is using her somewhat tentative/nervous voice just like the phone call scene with Jim from season 3. So while it’s obvious Brian has feelings for her this makes me think it isn’t 100% one-sided, otherwise she would speak more casually.

  17. 28. Toby97  

    I don’t know if I am overreacting, but I thought that this episode was the best of the season! so many hilarious lines, by the end of it I was in tears – the highlight was definitely Dwight ‘hazing’ Clarke and taking it way too far lol. What happened to Pete/Erin’s storyline this episode? I was looking forward to getting a bit closer to one of the questions I wanted answers for. Ah well.

  18. 27. Lin Beifunk  

    I thought this was hilarious — classic Office, as some people here would say — but that ending…eek.

  19. 26. Jessie  

    @26, I agree! So sad Nate wasn’t made a regular this season. I think he fits in really well.

  20. 25. Elle Gaynes  

    I LOVE NATE! He’s my favorite character! He’s so funny! Like Creed and Meredith in the early days…
