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.
