The Office New Leads quotes

Michael: Screw you, Halpert.

Jim: M Night Shulman?

Michael: The Lost and Found has gone missing. It itself is lost. So please try not to lose anything until we find it.

Andy: Well then no Andy Bernard, per se.

Dwight: You couldn’t handle my undivided attention.

Michael: The way this place used to work was, make friends first, make sales second, make love third, in no particular order.

Dwight: All of my numbers. All six of my numbers. Okay? Including the car phone! Alright, Dwight out!

Dwight: Oh, you say Jesus is king of kings? Well, what does that say to you about how I think of myself?

Angela: I’ve emailed you four times asking you to come to my desk.

Michael: Stop sexting Pam.

Michael: The sales department smashed my sandwich?
Darryl: Yes. All of them. Together. It’s a conspiracy.

Darryl: You need to get back on top.
Michael: That’s what she said.

Phyllis: Hand them over, numnuts.

Michael: I am sick of your uppity attitude, Jim.

Gabe: Michael, I don’t want to incentivize murder.

Michael: Because today we are all kings … and queens.

Michael: A father needs to respect his boss, and kids don’t respect the father who doesn’t respect the boss.

Jim: This one’s a map.
Michael: Or is it?

Angela: Fill them out. All of them. And when you’re done, you can watch me shred them.

Pam: Nothing but vomit and diapers over here.

Jim: Having a baby is as exhausting as they say it is. Having two babies … that’s just unfair.

Pam: He means “his mopey place.” It’s under that streetlamp that he thinks was in Casablanca.

Michael: Today I turned an office crisis into a teachable moment.

Dwight: The prankster is getting pranked, haha!

Michael: If you want to find your leads, go to the man who never breeds.

Dwight: Alright Meredith, take off your dress.
Meredith: Okey dokey.

Toby: If we don’t patronize the only Syrian restaurant in town, there’ll be nothing left but pan pizzas and, you know, make your own salads.

Kevin: Tonight is Ghost Whisperer, so Friday.

Toby: Does it have to be pizza? Can it be a falafel?

Michael: You were all successories.

Dwight: I’ll go, Michael. ‘Cause you’ll just screw it up.

Dwight: This place has gone to hell.

Michael: Sometimes the acorn just stays an acorn.

Kelly: You know maybe if the salesmen weren’t acting like such a bunch of stuck-up losers, this day wouldn’t be so bad. Did you ever think of that?

Kelly: Don’t use your cute baby to make us like you.

Jim: She’s wearing a onesie.

Phyllis: A lot of their work can be done from India.

Dwight: Hey, there is nothing I can do about my wide-set eyes.

Dwight: I hitched my wagon to a horse with no legs.

Dwight: Stop it! That’s my spool!

Phyllis: If they don’t have an iPod by now, they really don’t want one.

Andy: Erin just texted me back. “People love shells from far away beaches.”

Dwight: No other animal on Earth could do this. Maybe beavers. But not like this.

Phyllis: They’ve accepted our simple offer of treats only. Nothing more.

Dwight: Purple much?

Dwight: Hope … grows.
Michael: In a dump.

Andy: You’re the nicest person I’ve ever met. Riddit-dit-di-doo.

  1. The kiss was kinda cute, but The Office should NEVER use a green screen. It just looks awful. No matter what. Please, never again!

  2. Wow I completely called the “radadatadoo” after Erin and Andy’s first kiss. Other than that, decent episode; sort of a funnier version of Casual Friday.

  3. Above average episode. I liked it alot. The way they did the dump kinda annoyed me though. 8/10

  4. I was laughing so hard at this episode. That was so great. The Michael/Dwight dream team is BACK! and Andy and Erin had their first kiss in the dump!!! awwww so cute!!!!!

  5. Alison, I hate to tell you this, but they’ve used a green screen before. And there’s a video out there that shows just how often its used on tv. It saves $$$.

    Anyway…RA DA DA DA DO

  6. LOVED the whole ep. (yes-the green screen was weird) The actors were all hilarious and we got to see everyone in the office which is awesome!!! Creed’s enormous glasses, Meredith undressing, Dwight and Michael fighting, Darryl telling Michael that he needs to get back on top TWSS, and especially Andy and Erin SO CUTE!!!

  7. Fun episode. It was good to see Michael and Dwight talking about how their relationship has changed over time. I also enjoyed seeing all the office characters involved in this episode. It had a season 2 feeling

  8. I think this was one of the weakest episodes in a long time. Not a lot of funny moments and it contained the worst use of a green screen that I’ve seen in a long long time. The dump scenes looked terrible! So unrealistic to the point where I couldn’t even focus on what was happening.

    For me the only times I laughed was when Pam translated a clue for Jim and when the non-sales staff accepted the treats.

  9. I know they’ve used it before (Michael in New York to see Wallace comes to mind), but the longer the scene lingers and the wider the shot, the more obviously fake it looks, making it so distracting.

    If they don’t have the money to go somewhere (are there no dumps in LA??), then stay in the office. The show is the best there anyway.

  10. I thought this was a great episode! But what were they talking about with Johnny Depp and the mailbox?

  11. I am really shocked that people liked this episode. I thought it was weak and unfunny. Michael made me upset, the dumpster scene was mildly entertaining, but I didn’t laugh once the entire episode.

  12. Good episode. Not the best, but that’s alright. Green Screen aside, still a good episode, which brought back old dynamics (Angela/Phyllis and Michael/Dwight).


  13. wow…. i’ve generally liked all the episodes that others didn’t like… but tonight’s episode really just kind of stunk. even the not-so-great episodes have made me laugh out loud in several parts. not so much in this one. i smiled, even chuckled once. but that’s it. dwight choking kevin went too far. anywhere else, dwight would get fired and/or arrested for assaulting someone.

    i also don’t really like darryl having his own office. yes, it was nice of him to get praised for his good idea, but he already had an office in the warehouse. and as foreman of the warehouse, shouldn’t he be down there supervising?

    i did love the scene where jim attempts to smooth things over with kelly and oscar. mindy was brilliant in that. and the “first president = lincoln” thing was funny, as was pam’s “it’s all vomit and diapers here.”

  14. Definitely not my favorite episode, at all. The dump scenes were gross. Phyllis is irritating. And I really don’t like Andy and Erin, like at all. There were some really funny parts, but overall I didn’t like it much.

  15. Funniest episode in a while. Dwight and Michael fighting at the dumpsite gave me Season 2 nostalgia.

  16. haha Alison, I agree…I couldn’t get past that green screen nonsense they had going on. It looked so bizarre.

  17. I liked this episode – even my husband, who hardly ever laughs out loud at episodes, laughed a few times out loud at this one. Really solid job, and funny, which I like.

  18. I have to agree with Laura that the use of green screen was so bad it was distracting. Overall a weak episode. A for the idea, F for the execution.

    A few shining moments came out of Michael’s scavenger hunt. Usually I find that Michael is becoming too stupid, but I did love “First president – Lincoln”. At the same time I will be hypocritical and say that Michael claiming the staff to be “successories” to his plot was a bit much. It would be funnier if he didn’t screw up a word every episode.
