The Office Pam’s Replacement quotes
Erin: Your mother is dead. She’s dead. She was hit by a bus.
Dwight: Andy, I’m really sorry about your mother. My deepest condolences.
Pam: I make sounds much worse than this.
Pam: But yeah. I’m pregnant.
Andy: It’s like a porno — hey, did anyone order a pizza?
Gabe: That’s the best way to land a hot girlfriend. You get her hooked on blow.
Toby: You know who’s gorgeous? Helen Mirren.
Dwight: Helen Mirren was born Helen Mironoff. That’s right, you’re fake salivating over a Soviet-era Russian.
Val: Not bad, fellas. You’re better than you look!
Kevin: We’re called Kevin and the Zits.
Robert: Tambourine? You know I’m the CEO, right?
Kevin: Guys! Robert is going to be a Zit!
Pam: Objectively, do you find her attractive?
Jim: It’s true, but it doesn’t help anybody.
Pam: Even I want some fries with that shake.
Dwight: Her breasts are large, her waist is small, her reproductive health in ample evidence, and facial symmetry — come on.
Pam: I know it sounds nuts, but I think Dwight is the only who’s telling me the truth.
Dwight: Well now, obviously, you’re at an all-time low.
Pam: Yup, that’s the Dwight I need.
Dwight: Our only loyalty is to the truth.
Dwight: Rule 3: Don’t fall in love.
Kelly: You don’t want to end up like Elin Nordegren. Actually, what am I saying, you wish you had her life. No offense, Pam.
Kevin: Maybe we should warm up with some scales?
Robert: Midnight Rambler?
Jim: Oh, you know who might be good? Mike Tibbets.
Dwight: I don’t see what’s so ugly about him. He’s got the broad face of a brewer.
Pam: Jim picked someone just unattractive enough to shut me up without tipping it.
Dwight: Just ugly enough to have deniability.
Dwight: I say we start there.
Pam and Kelly: With the crotch?
Dwight: With the crotch.
Creed: How did I get this long triangle?
Dwight: Jim has no discernible sense of humor, Pam, you should know that.
Pam: Why is he making her laugh so much?
Dwight: I’m sorry, I fell down, Mr. Balance.
Dwight: Does your husband have very soft erections? Because if not, I just grabbed a very soft penis for nothing.
Cathy: Oh, that line from Zoolander? It was from a deleted scene so we were both right.
Jim: Told ya.
Andy: Did you know that Lisa toured with Chaka Khan?
Kevin: You serious? From Star Trek?
Andy: We go where the music takes us.
Val: I think the music left without you.
Dwight: Why don’t you check out the sympathy cards, old man?
Dwight: Is your name Jim Halpert?
Jim: In my defense, he was grabbing my crotch fairly aggressively at the time.
Dwight: It’s important to go every month and get your prostate checked.
Dwight: Doesn’t it worry you in the slightest that Jim is not his real name?
