The Office Sabre quotes

Michael: I got a big box, yes I do, I got a big box, how ’bout you?

Michael: Scissor me.

Michael: We probably could have saved our own asses. We didn’t need them touching our asses!

Michael: This cord has “Creed” written all over it.

Pam: Maybe we can put the box back together.
Dwight: Impossible. He opened it like an ape.

Creed: Have you tried making everything smaller?

Michael: Why do I have to explain everything?
Pam: Because we’re usually not on the same page.

Michael: You can really see he is okay taking a picture with me. Even though I was there for disciplinary reasons.

Dwight: Welcome. Scranton hot dog from Scranton?

Jim: Trained. Loving it. Good at it.

Andy: You sure it’s “Saber”?

Jim: Turns out a lot of parents want the very best for their children! That’s weird.

Jim: There’s always the army. The infantry.

Christian Slater: Have you ever tasted a rainbow? At Sabre, you will.

Jim: So you’ve been shown a nonsensical video. You’re probably wondering, what’s going on? Well you’re not alone.

Meredith: Talk about vacation days!

Michael: There is a small part of me that is actually very excited about this new company. But 70% of me is water. And the other part, the real part, the part that has feelings, and emotions, and thoughts, and makes decisions, and if I can be crass, makes babies, that part thinks that all of these changes suck b—-.

Michael: Really? You don’t have enough water in there? Your stomach?

Michael: I miss the old Dunder Mifflin. Too much change is not a good thing. Ask the climate.

Jim: Cubbies! I totally forgot about cubbies.

Pam: There’s a finger painting station! And a curly slide! Am I too old to go here?

Andy: The ball’s totally in Erin’s court. After the whole drum line thing.

Michael: Is Christian Slater back there? Because he knows, he’d know what to do.

Michael: He is not a big fan of me dropping by unannounced. But then again, who is.

David: Maybe we’ll go outside. Outside.

Jerry: Did you ever consider that you might not be as charming as you think you are?
Jim: This coming from the guy who still uses a children’s toilet?

Andy: That’s as hard as I can hint.

Michael: There are very few things that would make me not want to team up with David Wallace, and Suck It is one of them.

Michael: That’s not the David Wallace that I remember. That is some sort of weird creature that lives in David Wallace’s house.

Phyllis: Michael, this isn’t a toast. You’re just thinking out loud.

Michael: Wow, that is metallicky. That’s like drinking a battery. It really gets you in the fillings, doesn’t it?

David: Well it’s a mess, what a mess, what you gonna do? You’re gonna take out your Suck It and you suck it! Suck it! Take out your Suck It and you suck it!

  1. wasn’t crazy about this episode. Great to see Andy Buckley though- his storyline was the best part. Christian Slater was a hilarious choice.

  2. Loved it! Suck it… haha.
    I’m scared for the changes but if they keep making episodes like that then I don’t care. Great job to J-Kras!

  3. That was a great episode! I was worried that this storyline would be kinda lame, but I am already loving it. “That is not David wallace. That is some kind of creature living in his house.” 9/10

  4. this episode seemed weird. It was like Jim was awkward and socially-clumsy and Michael was the sane one! Good andy-erin plot, though.

  5. Not a big fan of this one. Not very many laugh out loud moments.

    I feel like they’re trying to do with Wallace what they did with Jan- lose their job and go a little crazy. I guess I can understand Wallace being in a funk after losing his CFO job and being kind of a lazy slob, but I think they took it a little too far.

  6. Ed Helms is in the credits!!!!! I seriously freaked out when I saw that. That CEO is like mean!!!! I was just like Oh my God!!!!!!!! David Wallace has gone completely insane….. i was just staring in shock while laughing my head off.

  7. Forgot to mention this in my earlier post but David Wallace the only good thing in this episode. That was an awesome scene in his house, seeing him so lost and the annoying drumming from his kid.

  8. so a few points:

    -how tall is that gabe dude?! he looks taller than john krasinski… who is 6’3
    -is the IT guy the same person from the last scene of “job fair”? (the art school guy)
    -i officially don’t like jo bennet
    -“infantry”… HA!!
    -jim loving the cubbies made me melt.
    -how hot does andy buckley look with a few days of beard growth?!
    -i love that they got the same people from “cocktails” to play david’s wife and kid.
    -and david singing “suck it” with his son was pure win.
