After Sabre puts Dwight in charge of a special project in Florida, he and Andy assemble a team which will spend three weeks working down in Tallahassee.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: The Shrutes have a word for when everything comes together in a man's life perfectly: Perfectinschlag. Hmm. Right now, I am in it. I finally get a chance to prove myself to corporate, I am assembling a competent team, I am likely a father, I am so deep inside of perfectinschlag right now. And just to be clear, there is a second definition, "perfect pork anus" which I don't mean.


Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Andy: Very impressive. He put a lot of work into that.
Dwight K. Schrute: Mmm-hm. Powerpoints are the peacocks of the business world. All show, no meat.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Andy: Alright, look. I gotta keep this office functioning somehow. So, I have put together a list. Here's your team: Darryl and Phyllis you can have, but you're also taking Kathy, Kelly and Kevin.
Dwight K. Schrute: Oh God.
Andy: You have your team.
[aside to camera:]
Dwight K. Schrute: Kevin? Kelly? Kathy? Andy just gave me a chain with three weak links. Have you ever tried to use a chain with three weak links? I have. And now I no longer own an arctic wolf.

Quote from Stanley

Stanley: Florida Stanley smiles. Florida Stanley is happy to go to work. Florida Stanley is who you want on your Florida team.

Quote from Stanley

Stanley: If anybody's going to Florida, it should be me. Every shirt that I have that isn't a work shirt is a Tommy Bahama. I'm the only person in this office who watches Burn Notice.

Quote from Erin

Erin: For a while there I thought something would change. But nope. Andy's still with Jessica, they even carpool together most days. I don't know, I wouldn't mind carpooling every day with Andy, but I wouldn't want to spend that much time with Jessica.

Quote from Darryl

Darryl: [clears throat] Notice anything different about me?
Val: You're wearing the beanie. You like it?
Darryl: Super comfortable. Like sweatpants for my head.
Nate: I love it too, Val. It's it's really itchy, uh but to be fair my head is constantly itching so I can't really peg it on the hat.
Darryl: [noticing all workers wearing Val's beanies] Wow. It's like the nation of Islam down here.

Quote from Ryan

Ryan: You have two young dynamic people in this office who know trends, who know youth. That's myself and Kelly Kapoor, you need one of us there.
Andy: Or both?
Ryan: Not both. Just one, me. Or if not me, Kelly. Ideally me. Again, youth knowledge. That's what you get when you put Ryan Howard on your special project team... or Kelly Kapoor. Again, not both. Thanks.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: How many of you have seen the documentary Deliverance?
Stanley: How did a mosquito get in here?
[aside to camera:]
Dwight K. Schrute: I released three hundred mosquitoes in the conference room, just temporarily. When I'm done, the frogs will take care of the mosquitoes. [two frogs ribbit in a plastic box]

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Andy: You wanna take Darryl, Phyllis, Toby, Angela and Oscar?
Dwight K. Schrute: Yes.
Andy: Can I interest you in someone less essential? Like, uh, a Creed or a Meredith perhaps?
Dwight K. Schrute: Oh, my God.
Andy: They're not expendable exactly, I just can't...I can't think of the word I'm trying to find.
Dwight K. Schrute: Are you kidding me?! I'm supposed to get in an airplane with those nincompoops? We'd never get off the runway.
