The Office The Meeting quotes

Michael: In your experience, what should I be expecting, in terms of sensation. Or emotions. Is there anything I can do to make it more pleasurable for me? Or for Dr. Chaundry? My main concern is should I have a safe word?

Michael: Once in awhile, one of the Amigos will go off to the bathroom while the other two have a secret meeting.

Pam: Yeah, I think the pregnancy really brought us together.

Michael: If you’re lying to me, right now, Pam, your baby is gonna come out a liar. That’s how it works. They inherit things through the breast milk.
Pam: Please don’t talk about my breast milk.

Dwight: How did the ladder end up on top of you if you fell off of it?

Dwight: I didn’t know we were in Communist Sweden.

Dwight: “Y’all having birthday cake?”

Toby: I am a fan of the hard-boiled detective novel. “I’ll punch you in the mush, see?”

Michael: Catch you guys on the flippity-flop.

Kelly: So jealous of your boobs.

Pam: People have to decide if they want to come to our wedding … or have to work.

Andy: It’s a total mind-effer.

Andy: “Hey Andy, let’s go visit Grandma, and then get drunk together, haha.”

Michael: I say go for the airtight plan.

Andy: If I may be so bold, it’s a lot of fun to let the goldfish take a little swim in the blue cheese. Bon appetit.

Dwight: I’m rebuilding a turn of the century steam engine in my slaughterhouse.

Toby: You gonna eat all that dog food yourself?

Ryan: I once had a glass of cognac that cost $77.

Ryan: Yes. I’m coming to your wedding.

Michael: Permission to speak on the record.

Michael: Jim is like Big Bird. He is tall and yellow and very nice.

Michael: Big Bird doesn’t make the tough decisions.

Michael: I’d have to talk to my mother and my guy at H&R Block.

Jim: I didn’t tell Michael because … I thought he’d try to help.

Michael: I can’t help but feel partially responsible.

Michael: Well we did talk about how handsome you are.

Michael: Did you know that Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy?

Jim: I tried to keep Michael in the dark. I should have known that he can do just as much damage in the dark.

Dwight: We thought that she was you.
Darryl: Why would you think a lady is me?
Dwight: Are you, are you serious? Because you look exactly alike? Am I the only one? Are you getting this?

Michael: That file had been falsified. Toby Flenderson is doing drugs.

Dwight: I would like to file an official complaint to Corporate because Darryl lied on an official form.

David: Co-manager and co-manager.

Michael: Jim Halpert, welcome.

Meredith: I’ll just have whatever’s fanciest, unless there’s ribs.

Angela: Pam, my bag was there.

  1. Okay episode. I felt like it was intended to get the plot of the show going. Aside from the awesome cold opening, I didn’t laugh much.

  2. Great episode. I think this season is going to be the best one… I can’t wait to see how this “co-managers” thing is gonna work!

  3. VERY GOOD! Loved the Dwight/Toby storyline. Laughed out loud when Toby yelled at Darryl’s sister. I hope they keep up this great string of episodes.

  4. Great episode. The whole episode was great, the three main plots were weaved together perfectly. Very mockumentary like too, that’s good as well. The best part was the Darryl, Toby, Dwight plot.

  5. I thought Dwight’s scream was much longer lol!

    Hooray for Michael and Jim being co-managers! Toby was, miraculously enough, actually funny when partnered with Dwight.

  6. Not the best episode. It was just ok. Kind of boring for the most part but it had some moments. Big disappointment from last week’s excellent episode.

  7. I must admit I liked Toby and Dwight working together. First time for everything. :P

    But wtf at Michael trying to sabotage Jim’s chance? I mean, I get he doesn’t want to lose both of them, but man…

    Not my favorite episode, but seeing David is always a bonus.

  8. Did David Wallace say sh*t when he was being pulled over? I watched it like 3 times and it sounds like it.

  9. I was originally skeptical of the writers after the MSPC story arc. After seeing how great those episodes were I am really excited to see how this storyline plays out. And also one of the best that’s what she saids EVER.

  10. I certainly wasn’t expecting that to happen. I think Jim was pretty slimy this episode though. After six seasons he finally gets called out on his less than stellar work habits, manages to guilt Michael into changing his mind, and gets the job.

    That being said, the writers have just managed to open up so many new possible storylines with this one change, I can see why they did it.

    It was nice to see Toby and Dwight “bonding”, and that Dwight actually figured Darryl’s secret out. Not the funniest episode, but it was still enjoyable. The cold open was A+ stuff, though.

  11. That was fantastic!!! The episode was funny and full of tension from start to finish. I’m glad Michael was able to pull through for Jim in the end. Also, I was glad to see Toby and Dwight team up. What an odd and hilarious pair.

  12. I wasn’t crazy about this episode. It just seemed . . . painful. I felt the Dwight/Toby investigation was predictable – as soon as Dwight raised an eyebrow, it was pretty obvious that he was going to challenge Darryl’s claim and ultimately be right. It’s happened too many times already on the show.

    I did like the Pam-Angela dynamic at the end. And that Toby and Dwight have a common interest; that could definitely bring a new twist to the character development.

  13. Awesome!!! Not sure it lived up to last week’s ep. IMHO, but I still loved it. The big bird moment… priceless. I wonder how this co-management scheme will unfold… I don’t think it will last very long. But wow, can’t wait for next week!
