The Office Viewing Party Quotes
Kevin: They should do that thing where they play the really good music to get him to come out.
Dwight: Ugh, they shouldn’t televise any of this. It just encourages copycats.
Angela: Just say “copies.” Why do you have to drag cats into this.
Gabe: What if it’s another Waco?
Erin: It’s pronounced “wacko.”
Jim: Some events are so newsworthy, so historic, that you have to stop everything to watch. Balloon boy, Michael Jackson’s funeral, uh, things that if you didn’t see them live, you wouldn’t really care that you didn’t see them at all.
Andy: I bet he’s wishing he had a hybrid, right?
Kevin: I bet he’s wishing he was strangling someone.
Michael: You go sell these and buy yourself a nice spaceship.
Michael: What is ‘Glee’? Some sort of television program?
Michael: I’m kidding around. I’m not actually angry.
Michael: I know what Glee is. I am a total Gleek.
Michael: You know who my favorite character is? The invalid.
Erin: Take Gabe, take Michael, you make Gay-Mike. Best friends.
Kelly: First they say that Mr. Schue doesn’t know anything about choreography. And then, like three episodes later, he’s this fantastic choreographer? Pick a lane, people. And what was with Jesse’s sudden turn on Rachel? Between Dream on and Funk? Where the heck did that come from? Honestly that show, it’s just, it’s irresponsible.
Dwight: Thirst. Now that’s a show I’d watch.
Angela: I would watch that.
Dwight: Tonight might be a convenient night for us to have some intercourse.
Erin: Those posters used to be real French ads.
Michael: Gabe likes to entertain a lot. And he cooks in an oven. And all that jazz. I just have a different lifestyle.
Gabe: You don’t really toss the dough.
Gabe: I like to create soundscapes.
Phyllis: Which one’s Glee?
Kelly: You have to stop.
Kelly: Is this a Glee watching party or a Glee pausing party?
Michael: I want you to shoot me like a hundred times in the groin until I’m dead, okay?
Ryan: What is this, samurai woodcuts?
Dwight: Are you going to quiet that baby or do I have to?
Dwight: I’ve been raising children since I was a baby.
Darryl: I wonder if there’s a guy in China right now looking at a bunch of our stuff.
Darryl: If I was a girl and I had to choose between a tall dude who loved Asia, and a you-looking dude who loved sweaters and wearing sweaters, I’d choose you.
Andy: That’s really nice, thank you.
Darryl: And I’d blow your mind.
Dwight: You know, it’s not really necessary for me to sit here holding her all night. Just go to Gabe’s refrigerator, get a lump of suet, or any kind of congealed animal fat will do, really, tie a piece of string to it, tie the other end to her toe, pop the suet in her mouth, she’ll be happy for hours.
Andy: Is that White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor?
Phyllis: You know your perfumes.
Andy: My nanny used to wear that.
Andy: I just ate an entire seahorse.
Andy: I feel exactly like a seahorse.
Erin: What’s the longest thing you’ve ever seen?
Gabe: Michael, you’re making this harder than it has to be.
Michael: That’s what she said.
Pam: I know what you have to do. Please stay with Cece.
Pam: Remember your concussion?
Dwight: I do. But you married my worst enemy.
Pam: I know.
Jim: Well, I think enemy’s a strong word, ’cause I think we have a really charming back and forth.
Jim: What kind of pizza would you like?
Dwight: Surprise me. No. Pepperoni.
Andy: Hey, Creed. Do you read Chinese?
Creed: Better than English.
Pam: Jim, just don’t think of it as degrading.
Dwight: Beer me, Jim.
Dwight: Can we stop the fake prissy act? Join the real world. Sex contracts exist, okay?
Dwight: You’ve been with a blonde before? It’s the big leagues.
Dwight: She’s in heat. She’ll eat your face off.
Pam: The reverse cycling ends tonight!
Dwight: A single piece of pepperoni, please.
Kevin: I wanted to eat a pig in a blanket… in a blanket.
Kevin: Please, Michael. Just make the Glee happen!
Phyllis: Bob and I took our time. The first time we saw each other naked, we didn’t even make love. We just stared at each other until we fell asleep. It was magical.
Michael: He’s a weird little skeevy guy with no waist.
Erin: I’ll raise it all I want. I’ll raise the roof!
Michael: If you break that girl’s heart, I will kill you. It’s just a figure of speech. But seriously, if you break that girl’s heart, I will literally kill you and your entire family.
Michael: That girl’s going to turn my hair gray.
Andy: I accidentally ate some seahorses.
Gabe: This one’s called “Earthrise on the Moon.”
Andy: That’s so beautiful.
