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.

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.
