The Office Michael’s Last Dundies quotes

Michael: Hey Toby, you suck!

Michael: I’ve never seen this place in the daylight.
Deangelo: This reminds me of Katrina.

Meredith: I’m so busted. Walk of Shame.

Meredith: I have Vienna sausages and I have napkins. Let me fix you breakfast.

Michael: You are getting so funny.

Michael: When Larry King died, they didn’t just cancel his show. They got Piers Morgan to come in and do his show. And that way, Larry lives on.

Michael: Anything can happen at the Dundies. They’re like the Golden Globes, but less mean.

Dwight: Remember, the Dundies is a black tie affair.

Dwight: Every day is black tie optional!

Michael: Tonight we will be hosting at Louie Volpe’s.

Pam: Their breadsticks are like crack.
Ryan: I love when people say “like crack” who have obviously never done crack.
Pam: Well the breadsticks are like what, then, Ryan? What can I use?
Ryan: I don’t know, something from your world. “The breadsticks are like scrapbooking.”
Pam: You’re right. No, I’m a middle class fraud.

Dwight: Always the Padawan, never the Jedi.

Kevin: I love banter. But I hate witty banter.

Michael: There needs to be, what you call, a rat-a-tat. And right now, it’s all rat and no tat.

Deangelo: Where were you on September 11th?

Michael: Jim, please, no loopholes.

Michael: If I want mind control over him, is that too much to ask?

Jim: I just don’t understand the desire to push sweet potato fries on me. I just want regular fries.

Jim: I’m sorry, that just wasn’t interesting to me.

Erin: I can’t just dump him, Pam. I’m not like you, I can’t be mean.

Dwight: Appalling. Eyesore. Surprisingly adequate.

Michael (as Phyllis): I’ve fallen and I can’t get up!

Oscar: The analytical part of me wants to examine it. But I know it has no content.

Dwight: Deangelo Jeremetrius Vickers!

Michael: Ryan would never do it, it’s too on the radar.

Jim: I do not parent for the award, but I gotta tell you, it feels pretty good. Cece, if you’re watching this at home, it’s way past your bedtime, by the way, how did this get televised?

Dwight: This is for you, trash can!

Louie Volpe’s manager: This is a cloth tablecloth. You can’t color on it!

Erin: People are right about the Dundies. They are magical. But, I don’t feel it.

Erin: I’m not attracted to you. I cringe when you talk.

Gabe: Here comes that quarter-life crisis everyone’s talking about.


Darryl: Damn, that was cold.

Michael: My last Dundies ever. I was hoping it would be more like “Godfather III.”

Michael: We had a very truncated rehearsal time.

Michael: Maybe you should have won the “Kind Of A Bitch” Award.

Dwight: Why are you even wearing a seat belt? You’re sitting in the back seat, baby.

Dwight: Next time, why don’t you pick a co-host that doesn’t have microphone-aphobia?

Michael: Well this is going to hurt like a motherf*cker.

Deangelo: Toby Flenderson, please come up here and accept The Extreme Repulsiveness Award. Oh, that’s so mean.

  1. Looking at who’s writing and directing these, they will be fantastic. But i just can’t even.. ugh.. just thinking about it makes me emotional. There will be tears. I can’t believe we’re nearly there :(

    Better create a “sad box” to have by my side for this one.

  2. Sad to see Steve go, but his exit I really think relit some fires in the creative team and turned the show back about 3 years..which is a good thing!!!

  3. I’m going to be more excited for this than for the finale of LOST! I just hope this is not the beginning of the end of this show.

  4. I hope he departs in a good way. I don’t want it to be stupid just like a usual Michael moment would be, I want it to be a sentimental moment that makes all Office fans just want to feel good/sad that he’s leaving.
    I’m so upset by this tragedy, but I have no doubt that the Office will continue strong, and we will see him again.

  5. I should start collecting tissues now… just to make sure I have enough for this episode. :(

    I’m glad Mindy Kaling’s penning it – only a writer who’s been with the show since the beginning can give Michael a proper send-off – but, still, there’ll be a taint to each episode from now on that I don’t see disappearing.

  6. And now the end is near…

    I am glad that Mindy is writing part of this episode. Mindy has always been true to the spirit of what makes the Office great, providing humor and sentiment. I hope that is the case with this episode.

    I am sad to see Michael Scott leave the Office, but wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors.

  7. oh, god! ;( i’m tearing up already! this is not going to be a happy episode, it’s going to be S-A-D! Steve. . .it’s just horrible to know that he’s going to go soon! this show is my life, and Steve is the core of it. My brother (who is annoyed by my obsession) is sad too, he confessed to me “I’m going to be by your side crying when Michael leaves the show”. hopefully, by Steve’s decision, there will be more of his movies, and I can’t wait for his new show that he’s writing!
    *tearing up already*

  8. I don’t know how they’re going to write a good enough episode to send Steve off just right…

  9. I have been watching this show for six years of my life. I have never missed an episode and it has become a major part of my childhood. Once i heard that the great Michael Scott was departing, i basically was speechless. The Office without the WORLD’S GREATEST BOSS!!! I have taken a vow of silence on the day that he leaves and i know that it will be emotional. Thank you Steve Carell for everything youve done for me. And to all my fellow Office followers……Does it smell like updog?

  10. I’m starting to already get kinda depressed. I know they’ll keep it going. But there will NEVER be another Michael Scott. No replacement will do. But his life is more important than my obsession. Life will go on… :(

  11. This is like a dream… a bad bad terrible dream. A nightmare. I can’t believe this is happening. After 7 seasons with this guy. Honestly, how on earth are they gonna find someone to ‘replace’ him. It just makes me sick. I LOVE HIM!!

  12. Katie, “This is not a television show, this is my LIFE!!!” To quote Michael from “Murder”.
