Dwight K. Schrute: Whoa, Michael! Wow!

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: [to camera] Jim and I have different definitions of friendship. I think it's talking and being friends, and Jim thinks it's moving to Connecticut and being best friends with Josh. Well Phooey on that. I... I'm done. I am not going to be speaking with him anymore. Whatevs. Long-distance relationships never work.
[the camera pans out]
Evan: That is so true. Ready?
Michael Scott: Okay, let me tell you what we're looking for.
Evan: Great.

Quote from Jim

Michael Scott: So why are you here? Is Josh busy?
Jim: Michael.
Michael Scott: I get it!
Jim: Did I do something or-
Michael Scott: No. No, I totally get it! He made a better paper airplane, Stamford does better in sales. You- I get it, we had some fun. We had some laughs.
Jim: Wait, wait, wait. I didn't transfer because of you. You're a good boss. You're a great boss.
Michael Scott: I'm not better than Josh.
Jim: Michael, it's not about- I transferred because of Pam.
Michael Scott: Oh, my God. You don't even know. She's single now.
Jim: No, I- I heard something about that. It's just I kind of put it all on the line. Twice, actually. And she said no. Twice.

Quote from Michael Scott

Michael Scott: Now would you do me the pleasure of hitting the lights, sir? Whoa. What are all those stains?
Dwight K. Schrute: Blood, urine, or semen.
Michael Scott: Oh, God, I hope it's urine

Quote from Michael Scott

Kelly: They're going on a date tonight.
Michael Scott: Oh, wow! Oh, my God, I have a great idea. You know what you should do? Be hilarious. Wear your wedding dress. It'd be a great icebreaker!
Dwight K. Schrute: And your veil.
Michael Scott: Yeah. Do it!
Pam: I'll probably just wear this.
Michael Scott: Really? Okay, well, word of advice, unbutton that top button, let those things breathe.

Quote from Angela

Dwight K. Schrute: Don't be mad, it is a business trip.
Angela: But I don't understand. It's for managers.
Dwight K. Schrute: Monkey, I am an ARM, Assistant Regional Manager.
Angela: I know! It's I was just really hoping we could spend some time together. [Dwight is silent] Are you still there?
Dwight K. Schrute: Yes, monkey.
Angela: Don't "monkey" me! You can't wait to get out of here, ARM!

Quote from Angela

Angela: In the Martin family, we like to say, "Looks like someone took the slow train from Philly." That's code for "Check out the slut." What is- Why are there flies in here?

Quote from Pam

Pam: Yes, I have a date. He's a cartoonist for the local paper, which is really neat, because I like to draw, too.
I'm kind of nervous. I haven't been on a first date in nine years. Probably shouldn't broadcast that.

Quote from Michael Scott

Kelly: Well, remember, no matter how much you may want to, do not sleep with him on the first date, it gives him all the power.
Michael Scott: Sleep with who? Whom? Whom? Whom?
