The Office Search Committee quotes

Manually transcribed by tanster :)

Creed: It’s a beautiful morning at Dunder Mifflin. Or as I like to call it, Great Bratton.

Creed: I love my kids. I love real estate. I love ceramics. I love my job. I love wrestling.

Creed: On this side of the room, Stanley, Phyllis, Jim, Ted, Elroy.

Creed: Bo…body. Bo…body.

Fred Henry: I’ll give you part three of part two. Not going to give you a whole part.

Fred Henry: Color code sent documents. TM.

Jim: Not everyone we meet will be good. But someone’s bound to be, right?

Jim: Did you know that Gabe’s last name was Lewis?

Andy: If you want something, you write it on a list, and then the housekeeper goes out and gets it. On Wednesdays and Fridays.

Andy: We’ll see what Rosa comes back with.

Phyllis: It was a big year for babies. Porky’s had come out.

Erin: I’m sure I was just another Porky’s baby. But why not find out?

Pam: Are you really going to apply for work at Scranton Breadworks?
Dwight: Bread is the paper of the food industry. You write your sandwich on it.

Buffett: When I make long distance calls, will they be monitored or is it on the honor system?

Kevin: The Botanical Gardens. Scranton’s Hidden Gem.

Robert California: There is no such thing as a product. Don’t ever think there is. There is only sex. Everything is sex.

Robert California: Do I look like someone who would waste my own time?

Robert California: Do you feel heard right now, Jim?

Robert California: The fallacy is that it is up to the steamroller.

Robert California: It is up to the object whether it will be flattened or not.

Jim: He creeps me out. But I think he might be a genius.

Darryl:: What other mammal, besides humans, drinks the milk of another mammal?

Romano: I don’t know if I want this job. If I get this job offer, then I know I’m going to take it. And if I take it, I know that I’m never going to quit. And then 25 years are going to go by and… I’m going to die here.

Robert California: I saw an episode on how they make paper on Sesame Street.

Dwight: Do you see my hat? No? That’s because I just threw it in the ring.

Romano: You had your jerk wads and your jerk offs, so… just between the wads and the offs, I had to get out of there.

Angela: It’s a little flashy. I mean, what am I, Naomi Judd?

Angela: “Oh hey, Pam, dude, whatever, wanna marry me?”

Angela: Everyone was crying. Even his aide.

Oscar: As a gay man, I’m horrified. As a friend of Angela’s, horrified. As a lover of elegant weddings, I’m a little excited. But overall? Horrified.

Gabe: How many windows are there in New York City?

Gabe: Shut up about the sun. Shut up about the sun!

Darryl:: I believe his name was… Clippy.

Pam: How is this on me?

Jim: Your department is just you, right?
Kelly: Yes, Jim, but I am not easy to manage.

Dwight: The hand that reaches from the grave to grip your throat is the strong hand you want on the wheel.
Jim: Okay. That’s vivid.

Ryan: How do I know that Robert is gay? He liked my Facebook photos at three o’clock in the morning.

Phyllis: If you want someone, if you really want them, go get them.

Nelly Bertrum: I’d take your job, but I’d reject the title.

Nelly Bertrum: Sockee is her name, okay?

Jim: I think at the end of day, I’m just going to pick a name out of the hat.

Ryan: Oh no, Stanley. You’ll live forever.

Meredith: You pick a crappy boss, you’re responsible for my crappy life.

Ryan: Take a day off from the whole Jim shtick. Try caring about something. You might like how it feels. James.

Kevin: If Angela can get a gay man to marry her, maybe I could get a lesbian to marry me.

Oscar: You have met a lesbian in real life, right?

Jo: Welcome to Scranton, Jo. Land of a thousand problems only you can fix.

Jo: These are costing me ten cents apiece, you jackass! I’m roaming!

Pam: Hello, this is… the client.

Jim: Hello, Mr. Souvenier. Mr. Jacques Souvenier?

Jo: What a nut job.

Jo: Give Dwight an interview. I like a little bit of crazy.

Kevin: Low blow, puppet.

Andy: I would go for someone who’s more… she’s great, though.

Angela: Niagara Falls? Pregnant? That was your dream? Pork medallions?

Dwight: If you’re not going to interview me, then I’ll do it.

Ryan: Let me guess who you want, Pam. Rachael Ray? The ladies of The View?

Ryan: Lead me… when I’m in the mood to be led.

Andy: Sometimes you hear people talking about failing upwards. I think I’m about to do that.

Nelly Bertrum: I think… I’m her best friend. She’s not my best friend.

Fred Henry: I will be the new boss of… Vance Refrigeration.

Carrey: People disappear in the Finger Lakes.

Dwight: I will run this branch or I will destroy this branch.
