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?

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

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

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.

*crickets*

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. Sounds like a fantastic episode in the making, I am a big fan of the Dundies and I too am hoping for an Andy/Erin reunion

  2. I’m “meh” on Andy/Erin. But i don’t like her with Gabe at all, so there’s that. But i am so freaking excited for the Dundies!

  3. I can’t wait for the episode! I think it will be a great one! I’m glad Erin will start disliking Gabe. I thought Gabe was the worst addition, next to Charles Miner. Andy + Erin FTW!

  4. The title for this episode makes me really sad:(. I’m really looking forward to this episode though. I’m glad that Mindy wrote it!

  5. I seriously just cried… the ending was so beautiful. and the sneak preview to Michael’s last episode.. where Jim tells him how great of a boss he really is… I’m man enough to admit that i cried like a baby during the last episode. I’m going to miss Michael so much.

  6. HORRIBLE episode. When the actors have lines saying the show isn’t funny, didn’t they realize that the actual show wasn’t funny either?! The musical at the end was the worst part, I actually changed the channel at that point. This isn’t the Office anymore.

  7. The Dundies was my all time favorite episode of The Office, until now! So funny and they really got us at the end with that song. I’m still in tears! Next week is going to be so hard (twss). Mindy Kaling you are a goddess of comedy writing. Her episodes are always my favorites!

  8. awesome episode! dwight on the keyboard was hilarious! great job writing and directing mindy!

  9. The ending was awesome, just the right touch of sentimentality and humor. It looked like Steve was really tearful and not just sticking to script. The promo for next week made me cry.

  10. I’ve been waiting for Dwight to play his recorder again for such a long time! The song made me want to cry. It’s really hitting home that Michael is leaving…so sad.

  11. Great episode. Too bad Pam wasn’t available. Lucky for them, they were able to get Jenna Fischer. By the time this wraps up, they’ll have Pam looking like Jenna at a premier.

  12. I loved this episode! I laughed out loud at each of Michael’s impressions. The song was perfect; although, I was surprised they didn’t throw a “that’s what she said!” in there. :o)

  13. Bravo Mindy Kaling ! The song at the end really hit me hard and was a very appropriate way to begin Michael’s exit for next week. Nicely done to have the whole staff participate in that kind of sentimental way. Applause applause !!

    (I am going to need prescription medication to prepare for next week’s tear-jerking episode.)
