The Office Trivia quotes
Manually transcribed by tanster. :)
Jim’s sheet of paper: “We’re on the longest silent streak in office history! Nobody has said anything in… 14 min!”
Oscar: You really have to say “oh yeah” every time you eat a candy bar?
Andy: There is an infinity of things that you can do with paper!
Andy: Let’s get high on our own supply!
Dwight: Animals, machines, vast virtual armies. All of these things I’ve successfully managed. The only thing I haven’t managed is people.
Dwight: Like a Spanish conquistador, I have come to Florida to claim what is rightfully mine.
Dwight: I’m not here to be given anything. I’m here to take what is mine.
Dwight: Surrounded by shrubbery. Like a squirrel’s office.
Robert: I don’t know what’s worse, the trip or the destination.
Oscar: Tonight is Triviacalypse.
Darryl: You just made a good idea, a great idea.
Gabe: Not just bagels. All unwanted problems.
Gabe: I am the toilet of this office.
Dwight: God bless you. You are an American classic.
Gabe: C.E.O. to C.O.O. What a difference a letter makes.
Gabe: Hallway phone, Gabe Lewis speaking.
Andy: I’m willing to try anything. Not anything.
Andy: We need an A team, a backup team, and a just have fun team.
Creed: Let’s reverse engineer this. You’re a black singer. Where do you go somewhere where you’re a novelty? Alaska?
Erin: Dogs, canes, signs, manholes, stairs. Piano, darkness.
Kevin’s sign: What is SEE-attle
Jim: Shawn Marion.
Darryl: Yes. Shawn Marion.
Ryan: That doesn’t sound right. I want to say Ladamian Washington.
Jim: Wrong. For so many reasons.
Kelly: It’s Lamar Odom.
Dwight: You’re a perfectly fine toilet. I’m just an extraordinary piece of crap.
Trivia contest host: I’m sure you’re just checking your Grindr account.
Ryan: I can’t not touch it. I want to be with my phone.
Trivia team names
Two Broke Dorks
Erin: I did my part, babe. I’m just the bell girl.
Robert: I could go to the gym three times a week, or I could wrestle Stu once a month.
Robert: Florida is America’s basement.
Trivia contest host: This 2001 masterpiece from Gilles Paquet-Brenner explores the intricate dynamics of a family in disarray.
Oscar (en français): It’s the film Le Scaphandre et Le Papillon (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly).
Kevin: Les Jolies Choses (Pretty Things). Marion Cotillard exposes herself a number of times in that film.
Dwight: It’s a job interview, not a flea market.
Kevin: A fluke is owned of the most common fish in the sea. So if you go fishing for a fluke, chances are, you might just catch one.
