Stanley: They’re like the new Jim and Dwight.
Meredith: Hey, New Jim, come sit on my face.
Jim: No. Pete is not the new Jim. The only thing we have in common is that neither of us wants to sit on Meredith’s face. And if that makes him the new Jim, then every human being in the world is the new Jim.
Andy: I had this really funny dream during Outward Bound that you died.
Andy: You will be called Plop.
Dwight: In a way, it’s like I have a son. And who knows, maybe someday they’ll hire someone who looks like a younger version of him. And then I’ll have a grandson.

Andy: If you Toby out, then you’ll feel like a real Nellie.
Jim: Team sports?
Pete: NASCAR. The Amazing Race.
Jim: I have nothing in common with Plop.

Dwight: This is a stupid activity. I would be embarrassed to be good at it.

Jim: Oh, come on, Pete. God, that’s just sad. If he doesn’t watch himself, he’s going to be here for years. Doing nothing. Wow, maybe Pete is the new Jim.
Dwight: I can’t use Phyllis. Are you kidding me? The moment she steps off this bar, I’ll be launched into space. God, you’re so insensitive!

Creed: In the parking lot today, there was a circus. The copier did tricks on the high wire. A lady tried to give away a baby that looked like a cat. There was a Dwight impersonator and a Jim impersonator. A strong man crushed a turtle. I laughed and I cried. Not bad for a day in the life of a dog food company.
Andy: There are two things that I am passionate about — recycling and revenge.
