506. Employee Transfer

Aired October 30, 2008

Darryl drives Michael and Holly to New Hampshire, where she was transferred after Corporate found out about their relationship. Back in Scranton, Dwight tries to get under Andy's skin by applying to study at his alma mata, Cornell.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Andy: Let's see how well you know your big red history. Bring it. Who was Cornell's 8th president?
Dwight K. Schrute: Dale Raymond Corson.
Andy: I'm sorry, that's incorrect. Cornell's 7th president was, in fact, James A. Perkins. Comprehension skills sub-par.
Dwight K. Schrute: Hmm. Interviewing skills sub-par.
Andy: What are you writing? You can't even give Cornell your full attention.
Dwight K. Schrute: On the contrary, I'm helping Cornell by evaluating their interviewers.
Andy: Nobody wants that to happen.
Dwight K. Schrute: Well, when they get my evaluation, we'll see if they're interested.
Andy: Applicant is attempting to blackmail interviewer, showing low moral character.
Dwight K. Schrute: Interviewer is threatening applicant with an arbitrary review process.
Andy: Applicant is wasting everyone's time with stupid and inane accusations.
Dwight K. Schrute: Interviewer has suspect motives.
Andy: Applicant has a head shaped like a trapezoid.
Dwight K. Schrute: Interviewer has turned off applicant's interest in Cornell, and they are going to go to the vastly superior Dartmouth. Ever heard of it? I think I have everything I need.


Quote from Andy

Andy: [whistling] Well, I thought I'd come in casual today. Man, I'm hungry. Anyone else feel like a beet?
Dwight K. Schrute: Where did you get those?
Andy: What, these? Bernard Farms. Best beets in the state.
Dwight K. Schrute: I see what you are doing. But I do not know where you are going with this.
Andy: You will. As soon as you visit my new beet farm. [bites into a beet] Ah. You're supposed to cook these, aren't you?
Dwight K. Schrute: [chuckles] Cornell. [bites into a beet]

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Halfway? You know what I want to do? I want to pull over and find a little bed and breakfast for when we meet in the middle. Emphasis on the bed. And the breakfast.

Quote from Kelly

Phyllis: Who are you?
Kelly: I'm Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and the City.
Phyllis: I like your shoes.
Kelly: Thank you. Will you help walk me to the fax machine?
Phyllis: Sure.
Ryan: I got her, I got her, I can help you. You look amazing.
Kelly: Inappropriate. Thank you. Who are you, Larry King?
Ryan: Gordon Gekko.
Kelly: Oh, from the insurance commercials.
Ryan: Yeah.

Quote from Holly

Holly: It's been a weird week since we found out I had to transfer. Michael wanted me to quit and get some job here in Scranton, I said "Well, why don't you quit and get some job in Nashua?" He said "I asked you first." And I said "first" at the same time he did. And then I said "jinx." And then we never talked about it again, and haven't been back to the conversation, so...

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

[Dwight arrives wearing a Cornell sweatshirt]
Dwight K. Schrute: Thought I'd go casual today. Good morning, everyone. Good morning. Hello. How are you, Phyllis?
Andy: That's funny. Take that sweatshirt off! Hey, buddy.
Dwight K. Schrute: Andy.
Andy: Remember when I jokingly yelled at you to take your sweatshirt off? Totally joking. But you should know those colors are sacred. Not that I care. But if you're not a Cornell man. You probably shouldn't wear them.
Dwight K. Schrute: No, I get it. I totally understand. And I just want to assure you that I mean no disrespect. You see, I'm applying.
Andy: Come on, you think you could get into Cornell?
Dwight K. Schrute: Well, if someone who barely out-sells Phyllis can get in, I should be fine.
Phyllis: I'm sitting right here, Dwight.
Dwight K. Schrute: I meant that as a compliment to you, Phyllis, as well as a slight to Andy.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Cornell is a good school. And I want to better myself through higher education. If it makes Andy angry, so be it.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Hey there. So, how do you think we're gonna do against Penn this year? Nathan Ford's arm looks pretty strong.
Andy: Well, he's had a pretty good season so far- Stop saying "we." You did not go to Cornell. You're just doing this to screw with me.
Dwight K. Schrute: Not so. Cornell is an excellent school. Without its agricultural program, we probably wouldn't have cabbage. At least not modern cabbage.
Andy: I know it's an excellent school, Dwight. I went there. My blood runs big red.
Dwight K. Schrute: Someday we'll both get together in Comstock Hall and just laugh about all of this.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Listen to me. I like you so much.
Holly: I like you too.
Michael Scott: And I've dated almost 4 women last-
Holly: I've dated 4 guys last year too.
Michael Scott: No. In like, the last 10 years. I've dated almost 4 women. And you are so far above them it is stupid.
Holly: Michael, don't. Don't. Don't make it harder than it has to be.
Michael Scott: That's what she said.

Quote from Andy

Andy: Take that down.
Dwight K. Schrute: Excuse me?
Andy: Take that down!
Meredith: You know, I once dated a couple of guys from Cornell. They were really nice, gave me a ride home.
Andy: I seriously doubt anyone from Cornell dated you.
Creed: It's pronounced "colonel." It's the highest rank in the military.
Andy: It's pronounced Cornell! It's the highest rank in the Ivy league.

Quote from Michael Scott

Holly: If you leave on Friday by 5:00, you'll be rolling in at midnight at best. And then sleep in Saturday. That only leaves us less than 24 hours before you have to go back again.
Michael Scott: Okay, okay. I will talk to you on the Bluetooth the entire trip. So we're talking constantly all the way. I'll tell you everything that I see. Everything that I pass by. Things that I witness on the road. Maybe I'll see an accident one weekend.

Quote from Andy

Dwight K. Schrute: Andy, I've been meaning to ask you, which a cappella group should I join? The Harmoniacs or the Do-Re-Migos?
Andy: Assuming you had the voice to be in any of them, it's irrelevant. Because I called admissions, and it looks like I will be conducting your university interview.
Dwight K. Schrute: That's a conflict of interest.
Andy: Yeah. Big one. So should I not let you in now, or do you want to do the interview, and then I won't let you in?
Dwight K. Schrute: Interview.
Andy: Excellent. When the hourglass strikes 3:00, then in the room whence employees confer.
Dwight K. Schrute: What?
Andy: The conference room.
Dwight K. Schrute: Okay.

Quote from Pam

Pete: Yeah, but She doesn't think she's gonna be, like, a career musician, right?
Jim: Here we go again. What's your deal today?
Pete: Just saying, how many famous trumpeters can you name, besides Louis Armstrong?
Pam: Miles Davis.
Jim: One.
Pam: Chet something.
Jim: Half.
Pete: The point is that there are jobs-
Pam: Dizzy Gillespie.
Jim: Also good.

Quote from Phyllis

Kelly: Wow. You guys look amazing. Stanley, I thought you hated Halloween.
Phyllis: Ssh. He wears it so he can sleep at his desk.

Quote from Kevin

[Creed enters dressed as the Joker]
Creed: Let's put a smile on that face.
Kevin: Damn it, Creed! I've been up since 4:00!
