The Office Mrs. California quotes
Dwight: Picture someone doing something heroic. Now was he sitting or standing? Not counting F.D.R.
Dwight: Look at all of you. I feel like you’re in a suicide cult.
Jim: You know I have to do this.
Dwight: I know.
Andy: Andrew… Baines… Bernard.
Jim: If I were you, I wouldn’t hire his wife.
Dwight: Your path from obesity begins right here.
Darryl: I want to live long enough to see a really, really gay president.
Dwight: Their massive BMs bust the rivets on my pipes.
Dwight: A gym turns fat into cash.
Jim: It’s sales, so you have to be able to live in the world of rejection.
Susan: I love shopping. And sales is just the other side of that.
Andy: Survival skills. Ranking of animals.
Andy: What I wouldn’t give for one of Phyllis’ classic room-clearing farts right now.
Darryl: This is not a gym. This is like a scene out of Saw 5.
Dwight: Look! Gravel bucket squat yoke.
Robert: It’s not a bad thing to have the CEO owe you one.
Robert: Why can you not say exactly what I tell you?
Dwight: I am now accepting memberships for the Dwight Schrute Gym for Muscles.
Phyllis: We have a gym at home. It’s called the bedroom.
Dwight: You gotta get the black people to do it to get the white people to do it. Then you gotta get the black people to stop doing it. One step at a time.
Andy: It would be great if she were gone by lunch.
Erin: I know exactly which stapler to give her.
Kevin: I’m going to save you some time, sweetie, and give you the answer now. I. Don’t. Know.
Jim: I think we should let this place just crush her spirit by itself. I mean, it knows what it’s doing.
Susan: Excuse me, waiter, there’s a dog in my soup.
Susan: Last time I had a job, I remember I hated the boss’ wife. Of course she was married to Robert.
Andy: The dude is an enigma.
Dwight: Is that the same philosophy you apply to buffalo wings?
Dwight: I’m going to make you look like Lebron James!
Darryl: It’s Lejon Brames.
Robert: You lying son of a bitch!
Robert: Where’s Jim?
Erin: He just rolled out and crawled out.
Jim: Creed. I was never here, all right?
Creed: Okay. What about your friend?
Jim: Oh boy.
Dwight: How do you think the Fonz got so cool? He stretched his pelvic bowl.
Gabe: Nice pelvic bowl. Deep.
Andy: Jim, I’ve had enough of your unhelpfulness.
Dwight: I am going to make you the buffest dude Val Kilmer has ever seen.
