The Office Michael’s Last Dundies quotes

Quotes manually transcribed by tanster. :)

Stanley: Have you lost your mind. Get off my property before I call the police!

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?

Jim: Maybe being a good dad is just following your own compass.

Pam: Didn’t think to mention me, huh?
Jim: Didn’t I?

Meredith: Tell you one thing, I’m not going to be a good mom tonight!

Michael: Hottest In The Office goes to Danny Cordray!

Phyllis: I have diabetes, too. You don’t see me making a big deal about it.

Deangelo: They say he’s going to be my right hand man. Ad lib masturbation joke.

Dwight: This is for you, trash can!

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

Michael: Pippi Longstocking. Ronald McDonald’s wife. Ron Howard. Ron Weasley. What do they all have in common? Redheads.

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. It makes me think of the season 3 finale, when he was sure he was going to get the Corporate job, and just left Scranton, and everyone just looked like “what do we do now?” I still feel almost lost when I rewatch that episode

  2. I was a VERY late comer to the show… I started watching DVDs of the seasons last summer and got all caught up. It’s now literally the only show I watch regularly. I’m looking forward to seeing what they do next…goodbye, Michael. :o(

  3. As sad as I am. I’m happy we got 7 hilarious years out of the star of a historically good show. That being said, no matter how much freshness this could put in the heart of the writers minds, it won’t be the same and seven years is a great run for a show.

  4. Good-bye Michael, it’s been nice. Hope you find your…paradise :)


    I’ll be so sad I won’t know what to do with myself

  5. Honestly I can’t even read the titles to these two episodes without tearing up and making a pout-face like a two-year old…we may need a tally-head group hug after these air (ok I will need a group hug) :(

  6. I’ve already told my husband that he can’t take me out for my birthday because I have to stay home on April 21 and watch The Office. I’m not sure what that says about me, but I know you guys can relate.

  7. I’ll miss Steve like every one else, but Will Ferrell
    will be a great addition!!!

  8. I was thrilled to read the part about Erin disliking Gabe. He’s an unfunny loser, and it’ll be great when/if Ellie Kemper and Ed Helms get to give dating another shot.

  9. I was also happy to read that Erin no longer cares for Gabe. He is a condescending and controlling twit to her. Erin deserves better.

  10. I think it’s great that Mindy Kaling is writing the second and (probably) last Dundies episode, seeing as how she wrote the first one. I think it bookends Michael’s story nicely.

  11. Maybe it’s all a joke? Maybe Steve isn’t really leaving? Maybe it’s all a late April Fool’s joke? Maybe… well, probably not:(

  12. Haha I can’t wait to see the whole Erin disliking Gabe thing. I really liked her with Andy, she’s at her cutest when she’s around him. While Gabe is all smarty-pants on her…uh, no.

    And Michael…ahh I’m really, REALLY, going to miss Steve. At least Michael has Holly. :)

  13. Love the name change! I already thought they would end up feeling like two separate episodes, anyway, so I’m glad they’re putting even a little bit more spotlight on the Dundies!

  14. on reading that erin is starting to dislike Gabe made me do a little happy dance. Erin and Andy belong together!!!
