‘Michael Scott Paper Company’

Season 5, Episode 23 -  Aired April 9, 2009

It's the first day at work for Michael, Pam and Ryan at the Michael Scott Paper Company. Meanwhile, Jim isn't sure about an instruction from Charles.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Maybe the Michael Scott Paper Company was a huge mistake. I should leave. I should go, and start my own paper company. That'll show 'em.


Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Yes, I am taking Andy hunting after work. Not long ago we were sexual competitors. I used to hate him, hate him, hate him, hate him. I studied him, to figure out why I hated him so much. But that blossomed into a very real friendship, as these things often do.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: [playing guitar over Andy's banjo playing] Hey you want to sing with me? Almost heaven...
Dwight and Erin: West Virginia, Blue Ridge mountain, Shenandoah River
Dwight K. Schrute: In German! Das Leben ist dort alt, älter als Bäume, jünger als Berge und weht wie eine Brise
Dwight and Andy: Take me home, country roads, to the place, I belong. West Virginia, mountain momma, take me home, country roads. [Erin leaves]
Dwight K. Schrute: Take it, Andy! Take me home, to the place I belong, Ba bah dah duh
Toby: You have to stop.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: It's Britney bitch. And I am back, in the form of a new company. The Michael Scott Paper Company. [attempts to parallel park, hits car.] Okay. Not gonna make this one.

Quote from Ryan

Michael Scott: Hey, Ryan, could you get to that copy from before?
Ryan: Pam's better at that stuff
Pam: That is so insulting.
Ryan: How is it insulting to say that you're good at something?
Pam: Because the thing you're saying I'm good at, is pushing a big green button a bunch of times.
Ryan: I'm not judging it, it's like ... I could run GM but I couldn't fix a car. It's not saying one is better than the other.
Pam: Seriously? Because it sounds like one of those is better than the other.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: I don't know I think we've done absolutely everything you can do to prepare for the day. I've updated our contacts, I have gotten quotes from suppliers. I have sent out an E-vite for our big grand opening pancake luncheon. Six yeses, one maybe, only eleven noes. Um, and 788 not yet replieds. But of that group, 782 have viewed it.

Quote from Pam

Pam: I make that one copy, and I become the girl who makes copies, and by the end of the day I'm receptionist again. And the worst part is, I like making copies. The paper comes out all warm and stuff. And it's cold in there. Cause it's technically a closet.

Quote from Michael Scott

Pam: Morning, Michael.
Michael Scott: Hello. They took away my parking space but they can't take away my pride! [climbs out of his car]

Quote from Jim

Jim: The new receptionist is also named Kelly. So Kelly Kapoor has decided to hover around my desk, so that she can run into his Charles' office every time he calls for Kelly. She thinks if she says "You wanted me" enough, he will in fact want her. It's not the worse plan she's ever had.

Quote from Kelly

Charles: Oh, and Kelly...
Kelly: Yes, Charles? Yes, you wanted me?
Charles: Okay, I'm gonna call you Kapoor, okay? And you, Hannon.
Erin: If we're changing names, can I be Erin? It's my middle name.
Charles: Erin. Okay, that's very pretty.
Kelly: Well, you know what my middle name is? Rajani Ghanda! And I hate it! I hate it!
