Quote from Angela

Angela: [as loud music plays to drown out their voices] Alright, how much have you revealed on camera about your relationship with the senator?
Oscar: They caught us kissing on Halloween.
Angela: Oh! He was dressed like Ronald Reagan! [slaps Oscar]
Oscar: Oh!
Angela: God!
Oscar: Angela! Well he kissed like Jack Kennedy!
Angela: Oh! [slaps him again] Stop it! Stop kissing him! Someone needs to call and warn him. This could ruin his career.

Oscar: You call him!

Quote from Pam

Pam: Listen, so everybody saw the promos and they're kinda freaking out. [Brian laughs] 'cause it seems like you got a lot of private stuff on camera-
Brian: Yeah.
Pam: You know, stuff people didn't intend for everyone to see. And they kinda want to know how much.
Brian: They want to know how much what?
Pam: How much stuff you got.
Brian: Pretty much everything.
Pam: Well yeah, but what if we turn off our mike packs?
Brian: They've got parabolic mikes, they can pick you up a hundred yards away, so...no if you were around there, they got you.
Pam: So we basically had no privacy for ten years.
Brian: That's not really true, I mean...
Pam: Um... Yeah, I gotta- I gotta go.
Brian: Oh no, hang on a second. Pam, I'm sorry, I- I- I can explain this so much better.
Pam: No, I think you explained it.

Ryan Howard: "They kiss. It is super emotional. Like in Toy Story."
Jim: Wow. I tell you what, it's really strong. I can't wait to read the rest of it later and see how it ends.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Esther: Dwight, we need to talk.
Dwight K. Schrute: I don't know that there's anything left for us to talk about, Esther.
Esther: Look, we're gonna have the tractor for the same amount of work days but my dad is planning on leasing it to the Vanderkirk brothers on the weekends.
Dwight K. Schrute: No.
Esther: So you're going to be paying more, but he's putting on ten times the miles and he's pocketing a profit behind your back.
Dwight K. Schrute: That snake!
Esther: You need to tell him you want a deal based on miles or he can just stick that tractor where the sun don't shine.
Dwight K. Schrute: That shady grove out by Willard's pond.
Esther: Mmm-hm.
Dwight K. Schrute: So, you're fine with me not leasing the tractor? I mean, our courtship can proceed?
Esther: Of course. [laughs] You didn't just think I was tractor bait, did you?
Dwight K. Schrute: [laughs] No!
Clark: Hey Dwight, what's an auger used for?
Dwight K. Schrute: Post hole digging. [points and laughs with Esther]
Esther: Stupid.
