The Office: Casual Friday

526. Casual Friday

Aired April 30, 2009

As Michael, Pam and Ryan return to Dunder Mifflin, there's tension with the existing sales staff over who should get the clients who were lured away. Meanwhile, the return of Casual Fridays leads to a number of questionable outfits.

Quote from Phyllis

Pam: [laughs] Boscov's at the Steamtown Mall?
Phyllis: It sure looked good on the mannequin.
Pam: Well, you have good taste.
Phyllis: Well, thanks. I sure wish I had more time to talk to my clients, though.
Pam: What?
Phyllis: Isn't that what you said to a bunch of my clients when you were stealing them? That I didn't have enough time for them?
Pam: Oh, I, um...
Phyllis: Close your mouth, sweetie. You look like a trout.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: I have a very difficult decision to make. It's like last week I was at the video store. Do I rent Devil Wears Prada again? Or do I finally get around to seeing Sophie's Choice? It is what you would call a classic difficult decision.

Quote from Angela

Angela: The man is wearing sandals. I don't need to see Oscar's toes at work. Gross! I mean he looks like he just got off the boat.
Toby: Can't you just not look at his feet?
Angela: Excuse me? Oh. You're so educated, aren't you Toby? So trained to deal with a hysterical woman. I don't want to look at his feet. Do your job!

Quote from Toby

Toby: Well, I was in the Seminary for a year and dropped out 'cause I wanted to have sex with this girl, Cathy. Followed her to Scranton. Took the first job I could find in H.R. Later she divorced me. So no, I wouldn't say I have a passion for H.R.

Quote from Jim

Jim: You know what? Best thing to do, Pros and Cons list.
Michael Scott: Pro for Ryan, he went to business school, he's my number one choice.
Jim: Well, that's--
Michael Scott: I like his hair.
Jim: Cons, Ryan. He defrauded the company. He has never made a sale.
Michael Scott: Okay.
Jim: He definitely stole my iPod.
Michael Scott: That sounds pretty biased.
Jim: You didn't hear my pros. Environmentally-conscious 'cause his mom drives him to work everyday.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: When I needed salespeople for my new paper company, everyone here turned their back on me. Am I going to ask them to beg for forgiveness? No. Am I going to ask for big, crying apology? No. Am I going to ask them to slit their wrists for me? No. I just want a tiny, microscopic version of that.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: The old Michael Scott might have taken this, but not the new Michael Scott. They are in for a bitter surprise. I am not to be truffled with.

Quote from Creed

Creed: So hey, I'm want to set you up with my daughter.
Jim: Oh, I'm engaged to Pam.
Creed: I thought you were gay.
Jim: Then why would you want to set me up with your daughter?
Creed: I don't know.

Quote from Kevin

Kevin: At least once a year, I like to bring in some of my Kevin's Famous Chili. The trick is to under cook the onions. Everybody is going to get to know each other in the pot. I'm serious about this stuff. I'm up the night before pressing garlic and dicing whole tomatoes. I toast my own Ancho chilies. It's a recipe passed down from Malone's for generations. It's probably the thing I do best.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Fresh hot ink.
Stanley: "New File System".
Dwight K. Schrute: Trust me, Stanley, you're going to want to read this memo very carefully.
Stanley: I am not changing the way I do my files.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, no. This goes for all of you. Believe me, you are going to want to heat my words.
[aside to camera:]
Dwight K. Schrute: When held over heat the invisible ink will reveal that everyone should meet at the warehouse immediately. Do not ask me where I got the invisible ink. Urine. It was urine.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: We need to do something. I'm thinking maybe a coup or we take Ryan hostage.
Phyllis: Those sound too harsh.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, I'm not saying we do those things. I'm saying something like those things.
Jim: Of course. What is like a hostage?
Dwight K. Schrute: Excellent question.
Andy: We could write a strong-worded letter.
Dwight K. Schrute: Words will never be enough.
Jim: Strongly-painted picture.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, pictures are too interpretive.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Six weeks ago, none of these people wanted to come with me. You two were the only ones with the stones to follow.
Pam: Mm-hmm.
Michael Scott: That was us, right there.
Pam: We were something else.
Ryan: What you gotta do is you gotta go down to that warehouse and you gotta crack some skulls.
Michael Scott: Mm-hmm.
Ryan: Chiklis style.
Michael Scott: Yeah, the Commish.
Ryan: Yes, but Chiklis Shield style. Not Commish style.
Michael Scott: Yeah, yeah. The Shield.

Quote from Jim

Creed: No. If you do that, I'm gonna do that. If you do that, I'm gonna do that. If you do this, I'm gonna do that.
Jim: Well, what if I just do this?
Creed: You don't want to do that.
[aside to camera:]
Jim: I'm just hiding out until all this stuff blows over. With Creed. Playing chess. At work. He's winning. I feel like I'm describing a dream I had.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: We want our clients back or we quit, Michael.
Michael Scott: Who quits?
Phyllis: Me.
Stanley: And me.
Andy: Me too.
Michael Scott: You guys gotta be kidding.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, we gotta be deadly serious. We'll start our own paper company. The Schrute-Bernard-Lapin-Vance...Stanley Paper Company.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: No matter how I look at this, I am in the wrong. And I have looked at this thing, like a hundred different ways. From my point of view, from their point of view... 98 others. And the bottom line, I am in the wrong. I'm the bad guy.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: So from the bottom of my heart to the top of my heart, I am sorry.
Stanley: Are you giving us our clients back?
Michael Scott: If we could just focus and go down the line, and everyone would say, "apology accepted", I think we would all feel better. And then we can break out my gift to you, complimentary white chocolate bark.
Stanley: Nobody likes that stuff except for you.
Michael Scott: They wouldn't make it unless people liked it.

Quote from Jim

Michael Scott: I need your help. This whole Pam/Ryan debate is screwing with my head.
Jim: I don't want to be biased, but I am very close to Ryan. You know that.
Michael Scott: You're close with Pam too.
Jim: Eh, she's nice, I guess.

Quote from Toby

Andy: You don't understand clothing, Toby. You're dressed like this amorphous blob of khaki.
Toby: All right, look, what you gotta understand is that when you come to work, you give up certain rights.
Dwight K. Schrute: Listen up, Flenderson. You're being weak and ineffectual. I'm cowboying this meeting, okay? Here are the new rules. Earth tones only. Also, women are forbidden to wear pants.
Toby: All right, come. Sit down, Dwight.
Dwight K. Schrute: No.
Toby: I'm running this meeting.
Dwight K. Schrute: That's debatable.
Toby: It's not. It's not. Sit down or I am writing you up.
Meredith: Ooh, where has this guy been?
Toby: Casual Fridays are cancelled. [everyone protests] Let's just not do it anymore.
Andy: That's not a solution. You're running from the problem.
Toby: There's not a single appropriate outfit in this whole. Except mine, quite honestly.

Quote from Darryl

Darryl: What'd I tell you about building forts in my warehouse?
