Favorite quotes

Michael: You say radon is silent but deadly, and then you expect me not to make farting noises with my mouth?

Michael: We’re not going to die of radon, we’re going to die of boredom.

Michael: If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden, and Toby, I would shoot Toby twice.

Dwight: You were being really funny, and then you went too far.

Creed: Curve the bullet like in my favorite James McAvoy film, Wanted.

Ryan: Is there a curtain rod in the room.

Jim: Stanley, please, this is serious.

Erin: You probably shouldn’t keep a baby up that late, though.

Pam: If you get stuck and don’t know what to do, make a random sound effect.

Dwight: Michael! Nice tie or something.
Michael: Thank you. It’s reversible I think.

Angela: I’m going to own your farm by the time this is over.

Dwight: I will do legal jujitsu on you.

Jim: So we’re going to say the most likely scenario is that Michael matured overnight?

Michael: Oh, Hooters to Go. Nice.

Jim: Billy Joel Rock Band.
Michael: That exists?

Michael: She’s not invisible, so stop asking silly questions.

Michael: Is it wrong to keep seeing her? Depends on who you ask. I mean, if you ask her husband, or you took a random poll, yeah, it’s wrong.

Meredith: I have never cheated on, been cheated on, or been used to cheat with. I ask everyone in the room, “are you in a relationship?”

Michael: People, this is Scranton, and many people consider that to be the Paris of Northeast Pennsylvania.

Michael: In Paris, it is rude for a woman to have less than four lovers.

Michael: Real Sports with Bryant Gumball.

Michael: I am declaring a moment of silence. Right now. Ten minutes of silence honoring Michael Jackson. Just sit there and think about Michael Jackson.

Andy: My name is Andy Bernard and I am a cuckold.

Michael: When are you people going to stop casting the first stone?

Andy: You’re Ali Larter. I’m Beyonce.
Michael: I am Beyonce always.

Michael: I can’t wait to see this jerk who is making me cheat on his wife. I should punch him in the nose for what he’s making me do to her.

Jim: It’s really warm in here. It’s like a sleeping bag.

Dwight: I don’t have $30,000 lying around. I have it buried very deeply, and I don’t want to dig past a certain someone to get it.

Dwight: Five times for $30,000? Not a bad stud fee. Better than most horses.

Angela: Those lumps are cats, and those cats have names, and those names are Ember, Milky Way, Diane, and Lumpy.

Mediator: I can’t legally watch this unfold. It’s coming a little dangerously close to prostitution.

Angela: I’m not some farm animal.

Shane: Are you guys Kenny’s dads?
Andy: No. But we’re gay for baseball.

Michael: I just looked a man in the eyes and I shook his hand, all the time I was thinking, “I’m sleeping with your wife.” And you know who does that? James Freakin’ Bond!

Oscar: Why would you throw something wet at me?
Michael: You love it.

Michael: I am what I am, Oscar, and I want what I want! And right now, I want a piece of cake.

Kevin: That is a dangerous game, friendo.

Ryan: You know what? I think you’re attractive. And I want to sleep with you.

Dwight: I am an honorable man and I will honor the contract. But I don’t have to give her the good stuff.

Creed: He don’t give an F about nothin’!

Michael: I have got big balls.

Michael: A motel is dirty and it is sexy. Like me.

Michael: Okay, Morgan-Freeman-narrating-everything.

Dwight: Stop kissing me. It’s not in the contract.

Michael: It was either living with myself or being happy. And I picked… the… former.

Michael: I vow to never listen to my bodily instincts ever again.

  1. 61. Confused in Scranton  

    Is Angela trying to get pregnant…or is she just messing with Dwight out of spite?


  2. 60. Nick  

    Oh, now I understand the orange lips. But I do agree about the weird make-up lately… especially on Pam! She looks really different… not sure if it’s because of the baby or what.

  3. 59. beeslyrules  

    Erin said she needed some alone time. It is not clear if the relationship is over. Maybe the alone time she was referring to was when she was sitting on the bench outside the office building before Michael joined her.

  4. 58. myredstapler  

    #55 Joe – Erin broke up with Andy in “Secretary’s Day” after Michael told her that Andy used to be engaged to Angela.

  5. 57. Janae  

    Ah, thanks for the clarification (duh!) about the orange lips! But I do still think the makeup looks WEIRD this season in general.

  6. 56. Chris  

    Great Episode, I was so glad to see that they are finally having the office tested for radon. With Toby’s luck the radon will only be detected in the area around his cubicle.

  7. 55. Joe  

    What ever happened to Andy and Erin’s relationship? I never remember it being mentioned that it ended…

  8. 54. Stapler  

    beesleyrules truly does rule! Never made the connection between the orange slices and the orange lips! Good call.

  9. 53. VitamanMan8  

    @39 My favorite part of the whole Sabre thing is that they brought Darryl out of the warehouse and into the every day goings-on of the show. I love Darryl.

  10. 52. Colonel Cornell  

    KUDOS BEESLEYRULES! Thank you, and Duh, to everyone of us who missed the orange slice/orange lips connection. :)

  11. 51. beeslyrules  

    Michael’s lips were orange because he had been eating those orange slices he stole from the liitle league team. Come on, people!!

  12. 50. Mimi Minou  

    Big James McAvoy fan here, so I loved the “Curve the bullet like in my favorite James McAvoy film, Wanted”!

  13. 49. Andy  

    About Toby’s radon rant: He first mentions it in “Goodbye, Toby” after he gives his little speech on stage at his party.

  14. 48. Molly  

    This was one of my favorite episodes of the season. I laughed so hard the entire way through. I’m glad Michael had an attack of conscience and broke up with Donna.

    Dwight trying to lower his sperm count had to have been one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen in my life.

    Oh and when Michael was talking about the radon test and how he turned it over cause he thought it would moo, HILARIOUS!

  15. 47. Matt  

    One of my favorites this season. It was funny from beginning to end and was really true to all the characters. Ten minutes of silence for Michael Jackson, the threesome proposal, Phyllis cheating on her diet; I love everything about this episode.

  16. 46. eastcoast_girl  

    Back to back home runs. But whatever happened to Bandit? Isn’t he allowed in the bed with the other cats?

  17. 45. Colonel Cornell  

    2nd Brilliant cold opening in a row! BOOIINNNGG!

    They have written Kevin’s character so great this year. I laughed the entire way through. This was top notch, old school OFFICE!

  18. 44. mustardcoloredshirt  

    Such a funny episode. I laughed out loud at “I am Beyonce, always.”

    What is up with Toby’s hair? I noticed it looked different during Secretary’s day when he was at the fax, and last night it was darker and kind of Donald Trumpish. He didn’t quite look like the old Toby.

  19. 43. Kelly  

    I haven’t been impressed with the last 2 episodes, but this one was really awesome! I loved the whole thing. Andy was great and everyone, including Toby, had something to say. have been kind of annoyed with Pam this year but she was so sweet in this one. I just hope they do something with Erin and Andy next week so we know if they are together.

  20. 42. Tracy G  

    Was Paul’s(Toby) hair a different color? It looked darker.
