‘St. Patrick's Day’

Season 6, Episode 19 -  Aired March 11, 2010

On St. Patrick's Day, Michael tries to impress Jo Bennett, the company's new owner, by having everyone work late. Meanwhile, Andy and Erin's first date doesn't go to plan, and Dwight tries to make Jim feel bad when he returns to work.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: How late do we have to work tonight?
Gabe: You never know with Jo. Sometimes we're here til midnight. Sometimes she doesn't show up for three days.
Michael Scott: Why does she do that? Why doesn't she just tell you what your schedule is?
Gabe: Yeah, that would be awesome. I could get a girlfriend. Wouldn't have to go to Amsterdam seven times a year. But uh, I'm young, right? I will date when I'm dead!
[aside to camera:]
Michael Scott: Do I really want to turn out like Gabe? Twenty-six. Single. Tied to my desk. No life, no family. I want to have been married by the time I would've turned thirty. That's just- That's just depressing.


Quote from Jo

Michael Scott: Hey there. So I think I'm done. Gonna head out. Unless you want to chat. Like we were doing earlier.
Jo: Well there's chatting time and there's working time. I'm still on working time.
Michael Scott: Mm? Well, the clock says chatting time, so.
Jo: Well, if you feel like you've done a solid days work...
Michael Scott: Right. What?
Jo: Well, I mean, if you can put your name on this day, and be proud of the amount of work you've done, then, by all means, you should toodle on home.

Quote from Meredith

Meredith: Stop fighting. Just on St Patrick's Day, okay? Just one perfect day a year. No hassles, no problems, no kids.
Ryan: Why no kids?
Kelly: Yeah, where are your kids?
Meredith: Nope. Nuh-uh. Not today!

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: [Irish accent] Hello. Hello. Top of the morning to you! Ooh ooh! Green M&Ms! Nature's Viagra! Two of my favorite joke areas combined. It'll be a good day.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Dwight K. Schrute: Dweedle Dee and Dweedle Dumb-ass have been away on maternity leave. Now Dweedle Dumb-ass is back, and we have a problem. Yes, getting hooked on Mega-Desk was my own damn fault. But ... I don't care about assigning blame. All I care about is Mega-Desk. That is all I care about. Getting. More. Mega-Desk.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Let's follow the chain of events. Jo likes Michael. Jo invites Michael to house. Jo doesn't like Michael anymore. Hmm.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute

Jim: [on the phone] And I'm actually pleased to be able to offer you printer cartridges and toner now.
Dwight K. Schrute: [whispers] Oh Jim, Jim! Sorry to bother you.
Jim: What?
Dwight K. Schrute: My headphones are broken.
Jim: Right.
Dwight K. Schrute: Can I listen to my music at a low volume?
Jim: Yeah, that's great. Great.
Dwight K. Schrute: Okay? [Unplugs cord, sings] "The cat's in the cradle and the silver spoon, little boy blue-"
Jim: When's the last time you upgraded your printer?
Dwight K. Schrute: "-and the man in the moon. When you coming home Dad? I don't know when-"
Jim: [whispers] Please stop that!
Dwight K. Schrute: "-But we'll be together then-"
Jim: Can you grow up?
Dwight K. Schrute: "-Dad, you know we'll have a good time then."

Quote from Kevin

Kevin: Just because Jo has no life, does not mean that the rest of us don't have lives. Oscar has a life. I think Ryan has a life. This is outrageous.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Did I mess up my career today? My future prospects at Sabre? I don't know. There is a chance. Yes. I tell you I love my job. But Jo wants me to put on a show for her, and pretend to work late? Nah. I spent all day, trying to make her like me, and I forgot to ask myself something: Do I even like her? As the Irish poet Bobby McFerrin says, "Don't worry, be happy."

Quote from Jim

Dwight K. Schrute: What the hell is this?
Jim: Oh!
Dwight K. Schrute: This is not Mega-Desk.
Jim: No, it's not. They call it Quad-Desk.
Dwight K. Schrute: That's ridiculous, this is made up of three desks.
Jim: Oh my God. We're going to have to re-name it then aren't we? [Dwight's phone rings. He crawls into a spacer under Jim's Quad-Desk]
Dwight K. Schrute: [answering phone] Hello, Dwight Schrute?
