Dwight: Why is everyone clumped around accounting? Break it up, you clique!
Dwight: Is that the program where all those puppets live in the barrio?
Kevin: Angela, this is inappropriate.
Angela: This is my favorite day!

Erin: I got a picture of you asking me to lunch.
Darryl: That’s some stone-cold narcissism right there.
Kevin: They’re making fun of Cookie Monster. I get that. But in a strange way, it feels like they’re making fun of me.
Gabe: Some of them still think I’m the I.T. guy.
Gabe: Not to be scary, but yeah, I would listen to me.
Michael: Would you mind if I listen to my book on tape? I’m kind of a bookworm. This is a novelization of the movie Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire.
Erin: What decade would you have chosen to be a teenager?
Erin: I would have chosen the 1490s.
Erin: And then my last job was at a Taco Bell Express. But then it became a full Taco Bell and, I don’t know, I couldn’t keep up.

Dwight: I was just slow-clapping your no-nonsense decision-making.
Kevin: “C” is for suspension.
Michael: That’s like “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” crap.
