The Office Promos quotes

Dwight: It’s okay, guys. She’s no longer horny.

Angela: Dwight is dating a brussel sprout farmer named Esther.

Kevin: What’s going on? Did Gangnam Style put out a new song?

Kevin: Go to the bathroom for 45 minutes, everything changes.

Kevin: This is a documentary? I always thought we were like specimens in a human zoo.

Clark: You fell in love with that hair? Really? Yikes. That is awful.

Ryan Howard: Eat fresh.

Andy: Internet, calm down!

Dwight: Did I tell you about her teeth?

Erin: Dwight, you have some guests. I think they’re from the forest, where we harvest our paper.

Dwight: Ah, the Bruegger family, welcome!

Esther’s dad: Fine office you have here. Sturdy walls.

Angela: I guess men find Esther attractive. I mean if there are chubby chasers, then there are men that like that… thing.

Ryan Howard: It’s called playing the subtext.

Jim: Space dust. Okay.

Kevin: Are there documentary groupies?
Andy: Of course there are!

Kevin: What’s that mean in Danish? Cool Guy?
Oscar: Dumpster Man.
Kevin: Cool. Super hero.

Meredith: I show ’em when I wanna show ’em.

Andy: We are killing it online!

Andy: We’re Internet sensations, guys!

Esther’s sister: You would be a great one to buy an auger with.

Andy: I’m about to lose my freakin’ mind!

Andy: Screw you, TexasPoonTappa!

Dwight: No woman would ever want a man who doesn’t know what an auger is.

Pam: It’s like we were in love, we didn’t even know we were in love.

Brian: They’ve got parabolic mikes, they can pick you up a hundred yards away.

Pam: So we’ve basically had no privacy for ten years.

Jim: Together, we will win this baseball game against the evil Space Yankees.

Ryan Howard: They kiss. It is super emotional. Like in ‘Toy Story.’

Ryan Howard: Another thing. I’m going to need you to get me the rights to Darth Vader.

Clark: A Scranton 9. But you know, point taken.

Clark: Let’s go out tonight and just score a couple of 4s. There are no games with 4s.

Esther: You didn’t think I was just tractor bait, did you?

  1. That sounds like a wonderful episode! Really the beginning of the home stretch. I love the way they teased it with the ad on Oscar’s computer in “Moving On.”

  2. I wonder if they’re going to show Michael Scott in the promos in this episode. He was in the majority of the documentary so it would make sense to show him. I hope so :D

  3. There are now TV promos for the Office within its own fictional universe, and Jim gets to meet the real Ryan Howard. Things are getting really meta.

  4. I really hope they mention that, up to this season, there was another Ryan Howard involved with the office!

  5. I always found it funny that BJ’s character shared his name with Ryan Howard the baseball player and no joke or reference was ever made. Strange since he plays for Philadelphia. I predict Dwight and Angela get back together at some point, however.

  6. I love the fact that “Ryan Howard” will be guest starring as himself on a show that had a character named Ryan Howard for 8 years. I sure hope they mention that fact at some point (and I really, really hope I’m not the only person who’s noticed this).

  7. I wonder if the brussel sprout farmer is Esther from the last episode? Also curious if they’re going to mention the “Ryan Howard” thing. I can’t wait until we see promos for “Promos” haha!!

  8. Ryan Howard was playing minor league ball in Scranton when the series was being developed. BJ’s character was named after him.

  9. ryan howard used to play for the lakewood blue claws, i worked at the staidum. Really nice guy, i saw big things in his future, can’t believe he is going to be on one of my favorite shows… Yes!

  10. I hope they don’t wipe all trace of Michael from the promos. He was a huge part of “The Office” (in-universe or not), and it will seem pretty cheap if they do.

  11. I’m ready for a promo of “Promos” ha! It would definitely take my mind off the fact that the cast and crew have finished filming the finale. It’s getting too real for my liking!

  12. sounds amazing! I just wish jim spent more time at the office. I miss him there :( i can’t belive that soon all this expectation and excitement for a new episode will be over :((((

  13. Just a random observation that I didn’t know where to post. Does Jim know about Pam’s mural yet?

  14. @#16 – yes, jim knows about the mural, which added to the fight on the valentine’s day episode.
    just read some updates and hints for the remainder of the season…and can’t stand the thought that jim/pam will split. i realize it happens SOMETIMES in real life, but NOT all the time. PLEASE stop all the strain within this beautiful, epic (albeit fictional) love story!! it can be “real” (which is how the writers have been claiming to keep it) while allowing the happily ever after to happen. PLEASE GIVE US OUR HAPPY ENDING!!! (

  15. @17 Thank you! I kinda wish we saw Jim’s reaction to it, though. Would have liked to see a, “Beesly!” if there was any at all
