The Office Koi Pond quotes

Michael: Join your gangster pumpkin on his pallet truck of doom.

Darryl: This is a surgery with an octopus and a burn victim.

Darryl: Label yourselves or take what you get.

Jim: Yes, I am the popular social networking site known as Bookface.

Michael: Why is Christmas the only holiday that can have a message?

Michael: Who wants candy?

Michael: I can’t believe it’s yogurt.

Michael: Why would you date an amateur when you could date a professional?

Michael: Let me go get your stroller.

Michael: This is not the phone, this is real life, baby, and you gotta own it.

Jim: He’s trying to micro co-manage me. Or … co-micromanage me.

Andy: Now my head hurts. Feels like I held in a sneeze.

Michael: Jim and I got caught in a little flash rain, flash wind, flash lightning.

Meredith: I don’t think it rained. My hip would be throbbing.

Andy: Looks like somebody’s got a case of the “definitelys.”

Oscar: Did Michael fall into a koi pond?

Michael: I’m not going to bump, and it was not hilarious.

Jim: Truthfully, it wasn’t the way he fell in, it was how long it took him to get out.

Andy: My girlfriend, on a scale of 1 to Gisele, uh, a 9.

Andy: We put our baby in Pam. It doesn’t matter what Pam looks like.

Stanley: Michael, don’t listen to them. You just ignore their carping.

Dwight: They’re mocking you with wordplay!

Creed: Hey boss, did you find Nemo?

Oscar: Don’t you mean, ‘Koi Story’?

Phyllis: When you fell in, did you flounder?

Michael: I’m not usually the butt of the joke. I’m usually the face of the joke.

Michael: Who here has been koi ponded?

Andy: I love to dance …
Pam: … I love to watch him dance!

Phyllis: So now you’re comparing yourself to a cute, tiny animal?

Creed: Who’s your worm guy?

Andy: Omigosh, like a little magical foot just high-fived me!

Andy: Message received, little soybean.

Jim: I am a big, stupid goofball.

Michael: I just wanna say that I cannot believe that I walked into a koi pond. I mean, seriously. Walk much? Oh. I should wear a snorkel to the next business meeting that I go to.
Phyllis: Michael. You know, when you think about it, it’s not all your fault. I mean, who puts a koi pond in a lobby?
Michael: Well, you know what? You’re right, Phyllis, but I’ve been there before. I’ve seen that pond. This is the thing, I am a world class moron. That’s the problem.
Dwight: Michael, please. Stop it now. You’re embarrassing yourself.
Michael: It’s okay. We’re having fun. It’s actually not the first time I’ve been embarrassed by a pond. In high school, the girls volleyball team always used to throw me into the frozen lake. Four years in a row. Oh… it was freezing. No. No. No. Oh, this is even worse. Couple weeks ago, I went to get a new cell phone and I wanted one of those packages where you have the five, you know, the friends, friends and family thing, and the guy was like, “who are your five friends?” and I’m, like, “uh…,” I didn’t even know, I couldn’t even think. Oh my god, it was so embarrassing. I don’t even have Jan’s cell phone number, and I hate her! She won’t give it to me. I was like, “oh, I guess I’m a loser.” A loooooze-er. Too far! God! Thanks a lot, man. Thanks for the advice.

Kevin: Enjoying your nut?

Andy: Going by the Nard Dog curve, I’d say we nailed it!

Andy: I gotta get my goin’ out on.

Kevin: No, use QuickTime. Trust me, I’ve done this.

Jim: It’s a killer new dance move.

Dwight: Jim is my enemy, but it turns out that Jim is also his own worst enemy. And the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So Jim is actually my friend. But, because he is his own worst enemy, the enemy of my friend is my enemy. So actually Jim is my enemy. But …

Michael: Jim is jealous of me? Jim is jealous of me.

Erin: He’s like the coolest person I’ve ever met.

Pam: I actually do mean Marlon Wayans. Yeah.
