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.

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

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.
