The- And the reason is- Because... in terms of the soup, we like to- that doesn't make any sense. We're soul mates. Holly and I are soul mates.

I am calling because I am going to have to fire your daughter Holly because she is such a terrible employee. I'm just kidding. I'm kidding. I'm actually calling because I'm in love with her. I love your daughter, and I have for some time. And I would like to discuss my intentions with you... which are to ask her to marry me. And I was just hoping you would give me your approval. And this isn't a joke. So call me back, when you get this. And I look forward to speaking. Thank you.

Holly: What if I said it wasn't up to them?
Michael Scott: Who?
Holly: The company. Nobody knows our future, but it's not gonna be decided by the company. It's not gonna be decided by anybody but us. What we are is up to you and me.
Michael Scott: So this is one of my favorite places in the world.
Michael Scott: This is where Toby announced that he was going to Costa Rica. It was the happiest day of my life. Until the day you came to replace him. Let's go in here.
Michael Scott: This is where we first kissed.
Holly: I remember.
Michael Scott: And this is where we first made love. You remember what I tried there?
Holly: Michael! [they both laugh]
Michael Scott: Through these blinds is where I first saw you, and you had all these boxes, and I thought you were the prettiest mover I had ever seen. And I was sitting at this desk when I called you to tell you that I had herpes and that I was still in love with you and you said that it was over, and that you didn't love me. Thank goodness none of that was true. Including the herpes. Ingrown hair. Right in here, this is where we first co-ran our meeting. Remember, obesity awareness?

Michael Scott: And over here...
Holly: What happened here?
Michael Scott: Well, nothing. Nothing really. I would just find an excuse to come here so I could stare at you through that window. This is what I'd do. [runs watercooler tap]
Michael Scott: Let's go in here.
Michael Scott: Hello! Oh, somebody's got a new phone!
Michael Scott: That is neat.
Holly: I got it for Christmas. I'm so out of my league here.
Michael Scott: [as E.T.] E.T. phone Holly. Holly like phone?
Holly: [as E.T.] Holly misses old phone.
Michael Scott: [as E.T.] Why?
Holly: [as E.T.] New phone is confusing. Gets bad reception.
Michael Scott: [as E.T.] Bummer.
Holly: [as E.T.] Bummer.
Michael Scott: [as E.T.] Reese's Pieces.
Holly: [as E.T.] Reese's Pieces?
Kelly: Oh, God, please stop!
Michael Scott: Hi, Holly it's Michael, I just wanted to call and let you know that I was thinking about what you said. It's just- You know? It's weird. Today, I ended up seeing a lot of women that I used to date, and in my mind they were all great. And then when I actually saw them, it was mostly a freak show. And you and me, that must have been a real train wreck. You know what, Holly? You're wrong. You are wrong. I remember every second of us. And talking to them today, I don't feel for them anything like what I feel for you. I didn't joke with any of them, I joked with you. You are the only one who was actually happy to hear from me. And I don't know why you downgraded what we had, but I did not make us up. Okay. Oh, wait, and you should talk to a doctor because you might have herpes. Bye.
Holly: [on phone] This is Holly.
Michael Scott: No, this is Holly.
Holly: No, this is Holly.
Michael Scott: No, this is Holly.
Holly: No, this is Michael Scott.
Michael Scott: Busted. So what can I do for you Holly.
Holly: I am calling because, there was a terrible car accident.
Michael Scott: Oh really? Was anyone killed?
Holly: A lot of people.
Michael Scott: Any nuns?
Holly: Three nuns, [Michael laughs] from a Missionary in South Africa.
Michael Scott: Were they in the missionary position?
Michael Scott: Well, well, Holly-lujah. It's a miracle. You're at your desk.
Holly: It's Mike-raculous.
Michael Scott: Ooh, reaching! You'll get there. Anyway, I was giving it some thought, and there's no reason that two attractive, good-looking intelligent, funny, attractive people can't, you know, just sit down and work this whole Meredith thing out.
Holly: Sounds good.
Michael Scott: Good. Would you care to bang it out over lunch?
