The Office The Chump quotes

Michael: You say radon is silent but deadly, and then you expect me not to make farting noises with my mouth?

Michael: We’re not going to die of radon, we’re going to die of boredom.

Michael: If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden, and Toby, I would shoot Toby twice.

Dwight: You were being really funny, and then you went too far.

Creed: Curve the bullet like in my favorite James McAvoy film, Wanted.

Ryan: Is there a curtain rod in the room.

Jim: Stanley, please, this is serious.

Erin: You probably shouldn’t keep a baby up that late, though.

Pam: If you get stuck and don’t know what to do, make a random sound effect.

Dwight: Michael! Nice tie or something.
Michael: Thank you. It’s reversible I think.

Angela: I’m going to own your farm by the time this is over.

Dwight: I will do legal jujitsu on you.

Jim: So we’re going to say the most likely scenario is that Michael matured overnight?

Michael: Oh, Hooters to Go. Nice.

Jim: Billy Joel Rock Band.
Michael: That exists?

Michael: She’s not invisible, so stop asking silly questions.

Michael: Is it wrong to keep seeing her? Depends on who you ask. I mean, if you ask her husband, or you took a random poll, yeah, it’s wrong.

Meredith: I have never cheated on, been cheated on, or been used to cheat with. I ask everyone in the room, “are you in a relationship?”

Michael: People, this is Scranton, and many people consider that to be the Paris of Northeast Pennsylvania.

Michael: In Paris, it is rude for a woman to have less than four lovers.

Michael: Real Sports with Bryant Gumball.

Michael: I am declaring a moment of silence. Right now. Ten minutes of silence honoring Michael Jackson. Just sit there and think about Michael Jackson.

Andy: My name is Andy Bernard and I am a cuckold.

Michael: When are you people going to stop casting the first stone?

Andy: You’re Ali Larter. I’m Beyonce.
Michael: I am Beyonce always.

Michael: I can’t wait to see this jerk who is making me cheat on his wife. I should punch him in the nose for what he’s making me do to her.

Jim: It’s really warm in here. It’s like a sleeping bag.

Dwight: I don’t have $30,000 lying around. I have it buried very deeply, and I don’t want to dig past a certain someone to get it.

Dwight: Five times for $30,000? Not a bad stud fee. Better than most horses.

Angela: Those lumps are cats, and those cats have names, and those names are Ember, Milky Way, Diane, and Lumpy.

Mediator: I can’t legally watch this unfold. It’s coming a little dangerously close to prostitution.

Angela: I’m not some farm animal.

Shane: Are you guys Kenny’s dads?
Andy: No. But we’re gay for baseball.

Michael: I just looked a man in the eyes and I shook his hand, all the time I was thinking, “I’m sleeping with your wife.” And you know who does that? James Freakin’ Bond!

Oscar: Why would you throw something wet at me?
Michael: You love it.

Michael: I am what I am, Oscar, and I want what I want! And right now, I want a piece of cake.

Kevin: That is a dangerous game, friendo.

Ryan: You know what? I think you’re attractive. And I want to sleep with you.

Dwight: I am an honorable man and I will honor the contract. But I don’t have to give her the good stuff.

Creed: He don’t give an F about nothin’!

Michael: I have got big balls.

Michael: A motel is dirty and it is sexy. Like me.

Michael: Okay, Morgan-Freeman-narrating-everything.

Dwight: Stop kissing me. It’s not in the contract.

Michael: It was either living with myself or being happy. And I picked… the… former.

Michael: I vow to never listen to my bodily instincts ever again.

  1. Really good episode. I’m glad Michael came clean at the end, i was starting to get mad at him. I liked the dwight storyline, especially when he tried to kill off his sperm. From beginning to end, a solid performance.

  2. I’m glad they actually went somewhere to film, and not use green screen!
    I like the whole Dwight and Angela thing.
    Also glad Michael broke up with Donna.
    And Michael still doesn’t know about the printers.

  3. loved this episode, thought it brought back the same style of seasons 2,3,and 4! Can’t wait for the finale

  4. Wow. A LOT happened in that episode. The secret sleeping spot reminded me of Seinfeld, Creed had a great line, and Ryan went for the threesome. Hilarious.

    Also, the callback to Toby obsessing over Radon was fantastic.

  5. So many great moments in this episode. Some of my favorites: Jim and Pam napping next to Dwight and Angela having sex, Ryan trying to have a threesome with Erin, Creed’s talking head (he’s had a bunch of classics this season) and Michael’s moment of silence for Michael Jackson. The cold open was great too, for the second week in a row. All in all, that was a hilarious 30 minutes.

  6. Loved the cold open. Brilliant! And some great little scenes and moments for everyone. Oscar’s “why would you throw wet fruit at me” made me laugh for far too long.

  7. You all loved it again? Wow, I must be really off. Jim and Pam having to deal with the Dwangela sex was funny, as was Dwight destroying his sperm and Ryan trying to ask Erin to have a threesome. That was it. Another nothing episode in my opinion. I think I’m just not jiving with the Donna story line for some reason. Glad it’s over.

  8. Brigette # 9 – I’m with you.. I really wanted to like it, but just couldn’t get into it. Hoping for an awesome season finale next week!

  9. This was my favorite episode in a long time. I thought the Ryan part was hysterical and saw it coming the second he got out of his chair.

  10. That was a great episode, one of the best of the season. I loved the Baseball scenes…Andy was hilarious!

    Dwight with the microwave was priceless! LOL

  11. This was the episode that I saw them film! They cut soooo many funny scenes, so I hope they make it to the deleted scenes! Angela and Rainn adlibbed a bunch of funny lines during their talking head; hopefully they’ll be available to see somewhere!

  12. This one was really good. I loved the cold open. That was Toby’s goal for so long and I was so proud of him. and that was just absolute classic Office right there. So good. :-) Andy was amazing. Dwight and Angela fighting was soooo funny! Pam preparing for Michael’s post-break up problems was so sweet. And there was some great Toby stuff. Overall, great episode.

  13. I agree with the amazingness of all the moments mentioned so far! Great episode! I love the anticipation for next week’s finale; both the Office and 30 Rock have done a great job setting up for next week. As Angela recently said, “This is my favorite day!”

  14. this was great! i have to say Dwight made my whole day!

    i liked how they set the plot for the next episode

  15. 10/10 one of the funniest episodes all season! Too many great lines to post just one. For once Michael Scott did the right thing.

  16. Looks like I’m in the minority, because for me, that episode was pretty meh. Which is a shame because I thought the last two weeks were pretty good. There were some good lines here and there, and the Dwangela negotiation was funny. But not much after that. Been a weird season. I think when we look back on season 6, we’ll say Jim and Pam got married and had a baby. And Jim was briefly co-manager. And that’s about it.

  17. It was great! I was afraid that Michael was going to keep up the affair. I should have known my boy would do the right thing.

    Dwight and Angela were priceless! Poor Jim and Pam were killing me, and once Darryl showed them where to sneak some zzzzs, here came Dwight and Angela.

    And Dwight’s attempts to sterilize himself – my husband laughed out loud (and he doesn’t laugh readily).

  18. Loved this — especially the continuation of plotlines from previous episodes (Toby, the baby contract) and Michael realizing what he’s done while driving. You can see it on his face! Well done!
