The Office Suit Warehouse quotes

Dwight: Jim and Dwight Schrupert. I was the dynamic, likable winner, that was doted upon by Mom. And Jim was the closeted foot fetishist, pretending to belong.

Dwight: Phyllis, my sister? More like my dead, great, great grandmother who died of stupidity.

Clark: Women reach their sexual peak at whatever age Jan was last week. I mean, it was like making love with a wild animal. But not like a cougar, like you might think. It was… like a swarm of bees. Bees that just find something wrong with every hotel room.

Meredith: Like my mom used to say, talk classy, act nasty.

Erin: I would feel super guilty if I broke anyone’s trust. About the pens.

Pam: I love the guy, but he’s basically Gumby with hair.

Clark: He calls me Clarky. ‘Cause he’s my dad.

Clark: My dad’s the best hunter there is. He’s like a serial killer. Of animals.

Kevin: Taste test? I’m in.

Oscar: YOLO!

All: We all drink them all!

Phyllis: Hey. Where’s my ring.
Creed: I’m sure it’ll turn up.

Darryl: You Zuckerberg’d this place out.

Dwight: What took you so long? Were you loitering out there like a hooligan smoking a doobie?

Darryl: If this company’s going down, I want to go down on it. With it. I want to go down with it.

Erin: I don’t want to be a busybody, but I don’t want to be a lazybones. Busybody, lazybones, busybody, lazybones.

Dwight: Adam’s apple like the prow of a ship. Thumbs like a low land gorilla.

Dwight: Please, kitty, may I have some more?

Dwight: He’s got cat turd collector written all over him.

Stanley: So this is what 2pm looks like around here.

Stanley: I usually take a siesta about now.

Pam: They’re the ones who put a fish tank next to a basketball hoop.

Kevin: It feels really hot in here. Is it hot in here? It feels really really hot in here.

Stone son: Does that suit come with a fire extinguisher?

Dwight: Next thing you know, you’ll be doing life on Riker’s Island.
Clark: That’s better than looking like the undertaker from Boring Island.

Darryl: Killed their fish, and they still hired me. That’s how you do that, baby!

Oscar: Kevin, move, I can’t pull up the rug if you’re standing on it with your rhinocerous feet.

Erin: You left me in charge of the pens, Pam. That’s what happened. The pens happened.
Pam: Are the pens here?

  1. Sounds like a good one. I’m really hoping the father-son stuff is a prelude to Phillip actually being Dwight’s son. Now that his spin-off is canceled they should resume what was obviously their original plan in season 8 and make the giant monster baby his son!!!

  2. I hope that Pam surprises Jim in his office, and by “surprise” I mean that I hope they “christen” it.

  3. Well, the episode for the following episode talks about Pete and Erin being “exposed”, so my prediction “Suit Warehouse” is this:

    Erin is avoiding Pete. Pete asks why and keeps pressing the matter until she admits she has feelings for him. They kiss.

    Let’s see if I’m right.

  4. Erin walking out of the Annex at the end – anyone else think there may have been something with Pete going on?

  5. An ok episode. The espresso plot was too over-the-top for me. I enjoyed the Jim-Pam-Darryl and Dwight-Clark stories though.

    Also did anyone else recognize the actor who played the son from the suit warehouse? He looks so familiar to me but I can’t remember where I’ve seen him.

  6. Some funny moments. Dwight’s interaction with Phyllis during the cold opening was vintage Dwight. I like where things are going, drama wise, with Jim and Pam. A lot of the espresso induced antics were pretty over the top. I guess thus far the entire season is supposed to have been what, 3 weeks to a month in toto? Wasn’t it said that Clark was with Jan for a week? He left with Jan several episodes ago. From the Spoiler page, it seems like next week things are going to start getting serious/the beginning of the wind down to the end. I hope so. While there have been some really neat moments and some intriguing hints at what may come, so far this final season been a bit of a let down. Specially considering what’s at stake here. I was hoping with the return of G Daniels, etc., it would get back to the realism of seasons 1-4. Thus far, excepting fits and starts and Jim and Pam, that hasn’t been the case, alas. I know it’s all about PB&J, but must every character become/remain a caricature? We saw enough of that the last 2 seasons.

  7. Pretty Good Episode…I sadly look forward to the start of the end…My FAVORITE TV SHOW is coming down the final stretch….

  8. The espresso product placement might have bothered me if I wasn’t already watching a nine year commercial for paper products.

  9. I’m pretty sure I liked this episode more than any since “Goodbye Michael.” So yeah, I’d say it was good.

  10. Pretty good episode – pretty funny! But, how long do we have to wait to find out if Angela left her husband? Is the Senator still with Oscar? Did I miss something – have these questions been answered definitively?

  11. I loved this. I love how all the side characters are being brought out more. So good. If they can keep this up, the last episode should be awesome!

  12. Loved it! One of my favorite moments was definitely the Dwight-Phyllis interaction in the cold open- hilarious. Anxious to see what will happen with the Jam drama!

  13. Great episode! I actually laughed more than I have for a long time. Loved Dwight and Clark’s story; enjoyed the caffeine jitters and tearing up the carpet and then leaving it! I’m looking forward to Jim and Pam’s new story line — how will they manage not being together 24/7? I think they’ll do fine — but it’ll be interesting to see how they do it.

  14. @Keith

    Who can forget realistic episodes like the one where Meredith got hit by Michael, the bat in the office, the pizza delivery hostage, or Michael the Survival Man? All happened in the first 4 seasons.

  15. great one!!!! loved the caffeine jitters! i missed some nellie, though. Pam is such a great character that i feel terrible when she’s not ok, she’s anxious about moving and jim is not there for her… :((( next episode the tension will grow.
