Dwight: Twirl sucks.
Kevin: Michael, I hated the twirl.

Michael: Hate to break it to you, Oscar, but some of us like boobs.

Dwight: Calves. Calves all the way.

Ryan: I’ll use it when you’re done.

Oscar: The Dunder Mifflin stock symbol is DMI. Do you know what that stands for? Dummies, morons, and idiots.

Michael: That’s bigger than my bed.

Michael: Say your name is Zamboni, and then I will say, “Well, we’re sort of on thin ice.”

Michael: Continue to call me Mr. Scott.

Dwight: I got a shirt guy.

Dwight: How is he gonna have grandkids?

Michael: What about Madonna? Obama twins?
Security guy: We’re not supposed to talk about it. Nelly Furtado.

Jim: Well, that was apple picking day. There’s no need to yell that day.

Michael: It’s a 45-day, 45-point, one point per day, we get to 45 points, we’re back in business! And you can take that to the bank! And limo lady? We’re going completely carbon-neutral!

Michael: I love you, New York!

Ryan: Well I’m glad you’re finally being proactive, Jim.

Michael: He knows economics as well as he knows bullfighting.

Jim: For a job well done. Well … not done.

Jim: You’re a good kid. You know what, it’s gets bigger once you’re in there. Enjoy it!
Ryan (from closet): Is there Internet?

Michael: Well … that was a waste of a text.

Congressman: He’s our best manager? Where’s the off button on this moron?

Michael: I have personally won over 17 Dundie Awards. So I am not a moron.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever posted a negative comment about the show on here — but that was probably the worst episode of The Office yet. The camera work and story lines were awful. I think I laughed once.

  2. I predict that Michael won’t be manager anymore, and they put Jim in charge.

    Michael really screwed up!

  3. It was nice finally getting to see some Jim and Pam interaction, although I didn’t like the comment Pam made about being forced to support him.

  4. Okay, that was awesome. It was the most realistic episode in a while. Not exactly hilarious, but not every episode has to be. And we had a wonderful Jam moment!

    LOVED it.

  5. jim stuffin’ ryan in the closet was pretty funny.

    the shareholder meeting was a little ridiculous.

    and michael looks way too classy these days.

  6. Not sure how I felt, it was not too funny or exciting.
    Although, I did lol at Jim’s story about the apple picking day…and the fact that he finally stuck up for himself.
    But the fact Michael isn’t fired for that stuff seems unrealistic…and where’d that CEO come from? Random.

  7. In this episode, Michael made me want to scoop out my eyeball with a still moist grapefruit spoon. I cringed so hard I think I may have pulled a muscle.

    Also, InCharge!Jim made me all swoon-y. Grr. The smiles, the talking head with Pam, the apple picking perfect day… GUH. SO cute!

  8. Fantastic. Best line DMI- Dummies, Morons and Idiots. Thank you Jim for putting Ryan in the closet (now all we need is a lock haha). I really loved Michael in this episode. Well done Justin.

  9. Holy FLIP, this season is just killing it in my opinion. The shareholder’s meeting was incredible- I’m so glad that Michael didn’t actually save the day, but I love that he still spun it to seem like a huge win. Also- prankster Jim merging with boss Jim… it was perfection. It was the first time Jim actually made the title his own rather than awkwardly playing the part. I thought manager Jim meant the end of fun, young, Jim, but they came together today in the best way possible.

  10. i really liked seeing season 2 jim and pam.

    jim’s solution for ryan was epic. WOW! i like that he found it funny, too.

    i really liked the episode. not the best, but not the worst. the dynamic kind of reminded me of “dwight’s speech”.

  11. “I’m so glad that Michael didn’t actually save the day, but I love that he still spun it to seem like a huge win.”

    Why? Michael is supposed to be a moron and childish but also really good at his job, certainly better than those morons in charge. I absolutely love it when he saves the day

  12. Well…it was realistic, but not very funny at all, especially compared to last week’s episode which was stellar. Probably one of the worst of the season so far.

  13. This week was great and of course it happens when they go back to the office formula – deal with real issues and office settings. The way it was written was the pinnacle of awkwardness that made prior seasons so great. Best moment had to be Jim dealing with Ryan, I was so looking forward to that. Michael finally being called out as at times an uncontrollable and kind of iffy manager was sort of satisfying. I think they set up a great premise for the next few episodes as corporate now got to see the real issues with Michael and they might challenge his position which should make for great development especially with Jim. Also I know some people are disappointed with the lack of JAM, but I’m enjoying it as the birth episode will then be much more special.

  14. I was really concerned for this episode because for me (besides Niagara) Season 6 has been really weak.

    But this week the show is back in business, and back to what the office is all about! Very ‘classic’ season 2 feel.

  15. I thought that was a really good episode. All of the limo scenes were so funny. Also I love how jim used his skill in being a prankster to be a good boss. Overall, great episode!

  16. Great episode, and probably one of the first ones to ever touch on a big issue current event. Showing a behind the scenes look at how corporate execs don’t care about the shareholders and workers was very poignant. Michael was confused because he actually cares and it seems that Wallace does too. Recyclops was great because of the prior seasons scene recreations. Jim putting Ryan in the closet was on-the-floor funny.

  17. With DMI nearing insolvency, Michael knew that he would not be fired (not to mention the fact that the Michael is the company’s best performer). So, he had free reign to do as he pleased, which led to some great and not-too-unrealistic moments. However, the episode seemed a little anti-climactic on two fronts. First, Jim hinted at his darker side, which would have been really nice to see (instead of the standard passive-aggressive Jim). Second, the episode seemed to end hastily, as neither Michael nor Oscar were able to offer helpful solutions, and they instead fled. I see this is as a thoroughly entertaining episode that I consider good, but that could have been great.

  18. I liked this episode, key word being liked. It wasn’t a phenomenal episode, but I thought it was solid and one of the best episodes recently. (I’ve stood in conflict with what most people liked this season: I hated Niagara, really didn’t care for The Lover, and absolutely loved Koi Pond)

    The Ryan-Jim story was pretty funny, and Michael at the stockholder meeting was perfectly cringeworthy without being so awkward that you yourself feel weird for watching it.

    I agree with what Ian (15) said… there’s definitely been a very season 2-vibe about this season. Hopefully the Office continues to turn out these great episodes.
