That's What She Said

That's What She Said

Look back at every "That's What She Said" double entendre from The Office. Although it was a catchphrase of sorts for Michael Scott, he wasn't the only one to drop a "TWSS" in the workplace. Dwight, Jim, Pam, Jan, Holly and Creed all had their moments.

Quote from Michael Scott in Finale

Jim: Either way, Dwight, I can't be there for you. I'm sorry.
Dwight K. Schrute: Jim.
Jim: I just really wish there was something I could do. [looks off into the distance]
Dwight K. Schrute: [turns around] Michael. I can't believe you came.
Michael Scott: That's what she said.
Jim: [to camera] Best prank ever.

Michael Scott: That's what she said.

Quote from Michael Scott in Conflict Resolution

Michael Scott: I love this place, and it pains me to see all of the negativity festering. Okay. Today we are going to get everything out of these files and into the open where it can be resolved. All right. How about the Phyllis-Angela dispute.
Angela: You already did me.
Michael Scott: That's what she said.

Quote from Jan in Cocktails

Jan: Why is this so hard? That's what she said. Oh, my God, what am I saying?

Quote from Michael Scott in The Deposition

Mr. Schneider: Can you go back to where this digression began?

Michael Scott: Well... Delivery's all wrong. She's butchering it.

Quote from Michael Scott in Money

Michael Scott: And the best way to start is to hit "Start". And up comes the tool bar. That's what she said.

Lester Synder: How long have you known the plaintiff?

Mr. Schneider: How long have you known Ms. Levinson?
Michael Scott: Six years and two months.
Mr. Schneider: And you were directly under her the entire time?
Michael Scott: That's what she said.
Mr. Schneider: Excuse me?
Michael Scott: That's what she said.
Mr. Schneider: Ms. Levinson told you that she was your direct superior?
Michael Scott: Wh- Why would she say that?
Jan: Can we just move on to another question?

Quote from Michael Scott in

Michael Scott: The world sends people your way. Ryan came to me through a temp agency. Andy was transferred here. No idea where Creed came from. The point is you just have to play with the cards that you're dealt. Jim, that guy is an ace. Dwight is my king up my sleeve. Phyllis is my old maid. Oscar is my queen. That's easy. Gimme a hard one. That's what Oscar said. Toby is the instruction card you throw away. Pam's a solid seven. And yeah, you know what? Ryan is probably, like, a two. But sometimes twos can be wild. So watch out. And I am obviously the joker. So... [phone rings, computer chimes, dog barks] That's, uh...
Robotic Voice: WUPHF, from Ryan Howard. Decided to sell company. Thanks, bro. Hell of a ride
Michael Scott: Thank God.

Quote from Michael Scott in Sexual Harassment

Michael Scott: Attention, everyone. Hello. Yes, I just want you to know that, this is not my decision, but from here on out, we can no longer be friends. And when we talk about things here, we must only discuss work-associated things. And you can consider this my retirement from comedy. And in the future, if I want to say something funny, or witty, or do an impression, I will no longer ever do any of those things.
Jim: Does that include "that's what she said"?
Michael Scott: Yes.
Jim: Wow, that is really hard. You really think you can go all day long? Well, you always left me satisfied and smiling, so-
Michael Scott: That's what she said!

Quote from Michael Scott in Gay Witch Hunt

Michael Scott: We are not in the playground anymore. There are new rules. We have to be mature, but we can't lose the spirit of childlike wonder. What is love anyway? Maybe it's supposed to break all the rules. Like me and Jan. Or Oscar and some guy. Life is short. When two people find each other, what should stand in their way? I'm glad if today spurred social change. That's part of my job as regional manager. But, you know what, even if it didn't, at least we put this matter to bed. That's what she said. Or he said.

Quote from Michael Scott in Dunder Mifflin Infinity

Michael Scott: Hey, can you make that straighter? That's what she said.
Phyllis: Did you plan that?
Michael Scott: No.
Pam: "Can you make that straighter?" "That job looks hard." "You should put your mouth on that." How can you even use that one naturally?
Michael Scott: Blowing up balloons, I thought.

Quote from Michael Scott in Christmas Party

Kevin: Why did you get it so big?
Michael Scott: A, that's what she said, and, B, I wanted it to be impressive. The biggest day of the year deserves the biggest tree of the year.
Kevin: But what are we gonna do with this hacked-off part?
Michael Scott: Well, that is a perfectly good mini-tree, Kevin, and we are going to sell that to charity. That's what Christmas is all about.

Quote from Holly in PDA

Michael Scott: I haven't thought about you having to go back to Nashua.
Holly: Maybe we didn't want to think about it. We can make it work. We'll date long-distance.
Michael Scott: That's what we said last time. Remember? We broke up on the drive. How's this gonna be any different?
Holly: We weren't in love last time.
Michael Scott: I was in love with you.
Holly: I'm not saying it won't be hard. But we can make it work. That's what she said.

Quote from Michael Scott in Survivor Man

Michael Scott: So, what did I miss?
Jim: Well, I tried to put all the birthdays together at once.
Michael Scott: Oh.
Jim: So, terrible idea.
Michael Scott: Yeah. Okay, I did that. Rookie mistake.
Jim: You did do it?
Michael Scott: Yeah. Just wait. Ten years, you'll figure it out.
Jim: Well, I don't think I'll be here in ten years, but-
Michael Scott: That's what I said. That's what she said!
Jim: That's what who says?
Michael Scott: I never know. I just say it. I say stuff like that, you know, to lighten the tension when things sort of get hard.
Jim: That's what she said.

Quote from Dwight K. Schrute in Traveling Salesmen / The Return

Dwight K. Schrute: Michael, I cannot tell you what I was doing there. But you have to trust me. I would never do anything to hurt you or this company.

Dwight K. Schrute: That's what she said.
Michael Scott: Don't- Don't you dare.

Michael Scott: That's what she said.
Dwight K. Schrute: [laughs] I don't get it.
Michael Scott: Grapes, seductive.

Quote from Michael Scott in Did I Stutter?

Jim: We are here today not to immortalize a man, but an idea. Maybe the idea of a man.
Michael Scott: Hurry, please.
Jim: Greatness is only skin-deep some people say. Well, that's not true. Other people believe it's deeper inside and in this case, that's also not true.
Dwight K. Schrute: Ready and go! Force it in as deep as you can go.
Michael Scott: That's what she said.

Quote from Pam in Customer Survey

Kelly: [to Dwight] You can't come into my nook and call me stupid. Maybe if you were a little bit more nice and polite, people wouldn't give such bad customer reviews.
Dwight K. Schrute: The reason that I got bad customer reviews is because I didn't! There is a massive conspiracy going on here, and I know you're involved.
Kelly: Dwight, get out of my nook!
Pam: [over Bluetooth speaker] That's what she said! That's what she said!
Jim: Good one.

Jim: [looking at Michael] Really? Nothing?

Quote from Michael Scott in The Injury

Michael Scott: Doctor, what is more serious, a head injury or a foot injury?
Doctor: A head injury.
Michael Scott: Well, you don't have all the information. The foot has been fairly severely burned, and healed quickly, very quickly. Actually, like, suspiciously quickly.
Doctor: So I'm ordering a CAT scan.
Dwight K. Schrute: What is that?
Michael Scott: Look, since you have the machine up and running, can I just stick my foot in? We can take a look.
Doctor: Well, for a burn, you really just need to look at the outside of the foot.
Michael Scott: Okay, what kind of machine is that?
Doctor: Does the skin look red and swollen?
Dwight K. Schrute: That's what she said.
Michael Scott: That's my joke. Damn it, Dwight.

Quote from Clark in Here Comes Treble

Clark: Wait! Wait. Hold on. Where's the band? ‘Cause there's just no way you guys are making this magic with just your mouths.

[aside to camera:]
Clark: What, am I overdoing it? No. No.

Quote from Michael Scott in Employee Transfer

Michael Scott: Listen to me. I like you so much.

Holly: I've dated 4 guys last year too.
Michael Scott: No. In like, the last 10 years. I've dated almost 4 women. And you are so far above them it is stupid.

Michael Scott: That's what she said.

Quote from Michael Scott in Goodbye, Toby

Holly: Oh, it was a pretty good company, but I just couldn't see a future there. They kept hiring from the outside. It was easy to get in, but impossible to rise up.

Holly: I think it's really cool you hired Kevin.
Michael Scott: Thanks.

Jim: So instead, you screwed me?
Michael Scott: That's what she said. No!
