Michael: Green M&Ms! Nature’s Viagara!

Michael: It is the closest that the Irish will ever get to Christmas.

Dwight: Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumbass have been away on maternity leave.

Dwight: Getting hooked on Mega-Desk was my own damn fault. But … I don’t care about assigning blame. All I care about is Mega-Desk. That is all I care about. Getting. More. Mega-Desk.

Jo: My dogs love peein’ in that snow. Makes me think they’re on to something.

Michael: Good morning, honey pile.

Jo: We don’t get much coal down in Tallahassee. I mean, just alligators and some of the worst Chinese food you’ve ever tasted.

Michael: I don’t care if you’re a loser or you practice bestiality. If Jo likes you, you are in. And I am in.

Andy: Erin Go Bragh!
Erin: Andy Go Bragh to you!

Dwight: They say that no man is an island. False. I am an island, and this island is volcanic. And it is about to erupt with the molten hot lava of strategy.

Pam: I get the sense that she’s very ironic.

Jim: Oh, it’s tough being here for a lot of reasons.

Dwight: I thought my mother was my father and my wet nurse was my mother.

Dwight: Turned out fine for me but Mose, same story, different ending.

Kevin: Jo, I have an idea for suntan lotion soap.

Michael: Darryl. Mellow. Soulful. Smart for warehouse.

Michael: You know what, we’re going to tape that on the refrigerator in the kitchen.

Michael: In the spirit of fool disclosure.

Michael: Jo likes Michael, Jo invites Michael to house, Jo doesn’t like Michael anymore, mm.

Jo: How many knocks does it take to get you to do some work?

Jim: I’m not surprised that Dwight’s using my baby to steal my desk. I’m a little surprised that it’s working.

Andy: She’s still going to like me in a week. Right?

Jo: You’ll probably feel better once you get some pants on.

Michael: Does her family owe your family something, in terms of a past injustice?

Darryl: Now Mike, I have to ask you to leave, so that I can learn about this tiny television.

Jo: There’s chattin’ time and there’s workin’ time, and I’m still on workin’ time.

Michael: No, no, no, that’s super clearish.

Packer: What’s up, butt plug?

Packer: I’ve boot and rallied twice.

Packer: Hike up your skirt and pull out your tampon, borrow some balls and come meet me!

Packer: Maybe next queer!

Erin: I’m in my jammy jams.
Andy: That’s okay, I’m in my worky works.

Jo: You do it by working hard. Or marrying rich. And I did both.

Gabe: I will date when I’m dead!

Michael: As the Irish poet Bobby McFerrin said, “Don’t worry, be happy.”

Michael: What the hell’s going on back there?

  1. The look on Andy’s face when Erin kisses him on the cheek is fantastic. It was soo…adorable.

  2. Anyone know when this will air again? The SEC tournament is on here (SC) instead of the usual Thursday night line up.

  3. best of the season! WAAAYYYY less cheese, a prank by Jim, Michael having several rational thoughts, and PACKER!

  4. Ha, I knew it was gonna be Todd Packer, when I saw the spoiler about an old character coming back.

    All in all very solid episode.
    I thought all the story lines were clever, loved the “Quad desk”…that was very Jim/Dwight, glad we are going back to their dynamic again.
    My heart aches for Andy and Erin…I had to shut my eyes, it was so hard to watch.

  5. I had no idea that Todd Packer would be in this episode! I was just thinking the other day that he needs to be in another episode. Love that Darryl is going to start working in Jim’s old office now!
    And Erin’s foster brother was kind of awkward. I thought this was a good episode, mostly because they had Packman, and Darryl in it!

  6. Loved the pranks between Jim and Dwight. very funny

    and the entire time i watched erin and her foster brother, i thought of the guy and his sister on that episode of friends! haha

    but the kiss on the cheek at the end made it all better.. erin and andy are so awkwardly good for each other…

    and katie, i feel your pain, luckily i had the digital channel randomly.. but it will be on hulu by about 7 tomorrow morning!

  7. Loved this episode! The camera work and Andy’s face when Erin kisses him was just heartwrenching. Can’t wait to watch it again!

  8. Loved the green exit sign!

    I was really happy for Darryl, hopefully we’ll see more of him now.

    Weird foster brother storyline.

  9. As soon as I read that an “old face” would be appearing, the first person I thought was Packer. I’m quite proud of myself for that… for some reason. haha. Loved all the Jim/Dwight stuff. I had missed their interactions. Quaddesk definitely seems more practical than Megadesk… haha. And the Jim/Pam conversations were adorable (and the picture of Cecelia!!!!). The Andy/Erin stuff was… meh… although Andy’s face at the end when Erin kissed him was cute. I’m not really the biggest fan of their relationship to begin with. Loved that we got a lot of Craig/Darryl, he’s awesome. And I liked that Michael actually stood up for himself at the end. The episode definitely got better as it went along.

  10. Excellent episode, the quaddesk tag had me howling with laughter. Little Cecelia was so friggen cute in that little outfit and poor Jim and his separation anxiety was so sweet. He’s such a great father. Also sweet was Andy’s face when Erin kissed him. Pitch perfect. So now my question is: what was up with Erin’s foster brother? The hand on the leg was awkward and creepy!

  11. haha, so great! my fave part by far was the quad-desk. just like old times :] and michael interacting with jo… very funny. i love erin more and more every episode! she’s such sweetie! overall, i’d say 7or 8/10 :D solid episode
