Andy: Oh yeah, Mayor Stress? Well watch this! And then? We dance. Oh how we dance.

Andy: Sex also works.

Andy: Tuna Wrap! Hand roll!

Dwight: Can’t believe they let someone like you serve on a jury. Makes me question the whole judicial system.

Erin: Oooh, the case of the hit and run. That’s exciting!

Dwight (as Jim): He apologized, and I just really want him to like me!
Jim: We’re best friends, actually. We’re going wine tasting next weekend if you want to come.

Erin: Angela had the baby!
Kevin: Is it black? ‘Cause that would be hilarious.

Kevin: Did I win the pool?
Erin: No. Right month, wrong year.

Kevin: Oscar’s the dad, I’m Oscar’s dad, and Angela’s my mom.

Meredith: Titillate us.

Stanley: My wife got to the TV first. Had to sit through damn Rizzoli and damn Isles.

Jim: I never considered that my week off would make everyone else’s job harder. Least I could do is give them a good story!

Toby: We used to recreate the various stranglings with empanadas from Ernesto’s.

Dwight: I was in Los Angeles last year. Jim tricked me into thinking I’d won a walk-on part on NCIS. But, that’s not important.

Dwight: I saw food trucks everywhere! Everyone in Los Angeles eats from them! And nobody calls them restaurants.

Kevin: Got that, bimbo?
Erin: Got it, bimbo.

Kevin: Philip is so fat!

Kevin: You didn’t prepare me for a big giant fat baby!

Erin: He’s more than substantial. He’s a monster!

Dwight: The fact is, you never said he was on a bicycle.

Dwight: You have the right to remain silent! You have the right to beg for mercy! You have the right to request judgement by combat! Dwight’s Rights!

Andy: What’s up, gangstas?

Dwight: He was lying the whole time, so he could go do yoga, or go canoeing, I don’t know what this pervert likes.

Andy: Dwight, not everything is a conspiracy theory.

Andy: Dwight, take a chill pill.

Andy: You ever heard of a Connecticut Cover Up?
Jim: No.
Andy: You know why you never heard of it? Covered it up.

Andy: They used to call me King Tut because I’m so good at keeping things under wraps.

Andy: My nickname was actually King Butt. Because I had a king-sized butt.

Dwight: He remembers Toby, the most forgettable man in the known world.

Creed: Usually I’m a burrito guy, but you won’t tell, I won’t. Wink, wink.

Andy: Hey, Murder She Wrote, how about we drop the whole Murder She Wrote thing. Okay?

Phyllis: I’m sorry, do you have any American Mexican food?

Andy: I don’t even know what the truth is anymore.

Kevin: I’m going to call him Little Kevin.

Erin: Is he really five pounds? Because I squat with five pounds. This feels like more than that.

Angela: I was under so many drugs, I felt like I was at a James Taylor concert or something.

Senator Lipton: If it’s anything like that gorgeous wrapping paper, then you hit it out of the park.

Kevin: I got Little Kevin “Call of Duty.”

Oscar: I don’t even know which thread to follow.

Dwight: Oh, it’s happening. It’s really happening.

Dwight: Here we are. So long, clump mate.

Dwight: I always thought I was going to defeat you somehow. But you’ve defeated yourself.

Gabe: You’ve reached Gabe Lewis. I’m currently indisposed. Leave me a message. Ciao!

Dwight: Call me immediately. That means ASAP.

Dwight: I’m going to find Gabe, tell him what Jim did, and let the little stickler do what he does best. Stickle.

Angela: Pajamas aren’t supposed to be baggy, right? It’s not the barrio.

Oscar: The only premature baby in this room is the baby this baby ate.

Angela: We had just seen “Thor,” and there was way too much wine in my chicken piccata.
Oscar: Chicken marsala.

Erin: Angela will make you cut your fingernails. It’s not worth it!

Dwight: What a beautiful child. Prominent forehead, short arms, tiny nose. You will lead millions. Willingly. Or as slaves.

Dwight: That baby is a Schrute. And unless somebody taught Mose sex, that baby is mine.

Pam: Wow, I really thought I’d be more excited to be here.

Creed: Angela’s back with her baby!

Andy: He’s licking on my finger, just like my cat does.

Ryan: Why am I shorter than the table that I’m standing next to?

Angela: Every baby looks just like you. Your face kind of looks like a baby.

Dwight: I kissed you with the force of a thousand waterfalls.

Dwight: I just might be his father.

Darryl: I have a kid. Last week, Jim at home? That was no vacation.

Dwight: The office looks different now. Smaller. Maybe I just feel bigger.

Dwight: Kids drive us dads crazy. Sometimes I feel like they’re raising us. Am I right?

  1. You’ve got to be kidding me. Pam having a baby doesn’t even get mentioned once while she is gone but Angela gets a episode? I don’t understand this show anymore.

  2. Interesting. Feels like the Scranton Strangler and Senator plots are finally going to come to fruition. Could the Office be tying up their plots to end the series? Don’t want to be a downer =p Hopefully not though.

  3. @HowTheTurnTables

    I don’t think it’s going to end anytime soon, at least I hope. The season’s starting to gain some momentum as well.

  4. 1. Glad to see the Senator return. Angela’s baby definitely deserves an episode, and Pam’s baby will get his episode when Jenna returns, I presume.
    2. As funny as Andy and Robert are, it’s nice to see an episode with a Jim/Dwight A-story and less about Andy or Robert.
    3. Considering what Toby said in “Michael’s Last Dundies”, is this a new trial for the alleged Scranton Strangler?

  5. Paul L already said that they didn’t want to do another Pam baby episode since it’s already been done.

    Plus the senator plot is great and will bring the funnies.

  6. For Those who are thinking they are going to do an episode for pam’s baby , she returns in this episode.
    So they won’t do this , and i think they are right. They have already done this , and another episode with the same plot could be a little tiring.
    And like someone said in the top of the page , it would be really funny if the baby looked like dwight. And if the senator flirted with Ryan would be a lot of fun too. Can’t wait to see it!

  7. For god’s sake, this isn’t The Jim and Pam Show. I’m sick of it always being about them. I’m glad they’re giving Angela a baby episode!

  8. I was waiting for Angela’s pregnancy to be fake, lol. It would have be nice if the birth of Jam’s baby was even mentioned, even if it wasn’t getting its own episode.

  9. I understand not doing an episode revolving around the new Halpert baby. It’s been done so it would be somewhat repetitive. OTOH, I think it’s outrageous and unforgivable to not even mention the baby’s birth. It’s the baby of two of the most beloved characters and it’s treated like it never happened. I find that disrespectful to viewers who love Jim and Pam. I mean, a talking head, Jim on the phone with Pam even if we don’t hear her. I just talked to a friend who asked, is the baby ever going to be born? Most fans just/ watch the show on tv. Only announcing the birth online in the baby blog was insulting and wrong. I don’t get them though really I’ve mostly enjoyed the season. Like, Angela announces her pregnancy and… nothing. No explanation for her getting engaged and beginning to plan a large wedding on the season finale, The new season starts 4 months later, apparently already having her large wedding (how’d she pull that off that fast in the summer?) and she’s now several months pregnant. Delivering in Feb she would have gotten pregnant in May, so she was pregnant when she got engaged then?!

  10. I think what some of us are forgetting is that Jim has never been the type to talk about his personal life to the camera crew, so unless they ASK about Phillip, he probably won’t be mentioned too much until Pam returns.

  11. Omg, Jennifer – I was praying for it to be fake. If you cannot tell, I am a HUGE Dwangela fan and just a HUGE Dwight fan in general. I want them back together so badly….

  12. when i saw the title of the episode i thought to myself fffffffffffff this better not be a “the crew of the office go to court” episode. thank god the summary cleared that up, it actually seems pretty good. i can already see the potential pranks jim could pull on dwight lol

  13. I agree with the rest. Not mentioning Jim and Pam’s baby at all was weird. Even a cold open would have been enough for me. Although, I do not think giving them ANOTHER baby episode (after the last one being an hour long) would be a good idea. I’m glad we’re getting to hear about the Angela/Senator story again. Although Jim and Pam will be treasured by all of us, there isn’t much drama there anymore. With the exception of ‘Pam’s Replacement’, they rarely have problems, and none are serious. The spotlight is trying to be more fair to the other characters. They deserve further development.

  14. Just a thought…but maybe Jim doesn’t actually have jury duty? What if he had to go to court because he made some poor decisions whilst leaving Robert California’s party…

  15. @Jeff I don’t think Jim was actually drunk or even drinking at Robert’s party. We’ve seen him drunk in PDA, he was not at all like that at the pool party.
